    what it says in the title though there are some rules

    1. NO plain boring space-wasting non-descriptive lists of characters unless you're requesting for someone to do the character creating for you which I'll allow though with a limit of five seperate characters per post when you request for them unless there on a team or something
    2. Actually put some effort into writing about your character and his back story
    3. Don't just automatically go for OC's try to think of a already existing Transformers character or even any character who's not a Mary or Gary Stu
    4. Don't just limit yourself to characters who are actual Transformers also try to rethink human and alien characters
    5. Crossovers are allowed as long as you at least try to make it make sense and it doesn't even have to be a property that already has a connection to transformers
    6. Bonus points if you try to link each others characters together and it makes sense and the other posters agree with it


    and with that out of the way let your imaginations soar

    the only reason I didn't write a template last night was because I needed sleep:tongue:  and yes you can draw pics as well and you get bonus points if you do art for characters written by people who can't draw like me:cry

    I made an Animated character for the "Create your own original Transformer' thread, so I'll repost him here.

    His name is Chuckles. He tries to be funny and fails, looks strong but isn't, pretends to be brave but a coward at heart. Transforms into a ROFLCoptor, Cyb mode is a ROFLTank. (he only had the tank as a Cyb mode, and picked up the coptor from unknown parts, he only has one Alt form) Has a chin tatoo that talks to him, leading him to believe he's insane, but others have, on occasion, heard it, too.

    A common thing he likes to do is just punch random people. Not in any particularly epic or overly flashy way, just walks up and "BAFF!" right in the kisser. His psychiatrist says this may be due to built up rage from a tramatic past, but he also says it could be that he's just crazy and violent. He fact that he laughs afterwards and then almost immediately changes the subject due to hardcore ADHD adds to the latter.

    He calls himself a Decepticon, but doesn't have any logos and Megatron really doesn't want him around because, well, damn, at least Blitzwing is crazy and useful, and Lugnut is loyal and strong, but Chuckles is just an annoying, useless turd for the most part. He doesn't have a lot of friends, but he does manage to get along well for short periods of time with other Decepticons along the outer rim of the Galaxy, due to him always going after "shorties" (Autobots) first.

    Tech specs:

    Intelligence: 4
    Speed: 4
    Strength: 5
    Endurance: 9.5 (he can take a beating, at least)
    Courage: 4 (the only reason it's so high is he's too stupid to be scared when battle errupts spontaniously, only to switch to "OHSHITHIDE!" mode)
    Firepower: 5
    Rank: 1
    Skill: 3

    Motto: "What, can't take a joke? Okay, that's not funny."
    Special power: Well, he's special alright. As far as power goes, his LOLbombs can cause 1337 speak, uncontrollable use of smilies, double posts and a sense of worth on teh interwebs. He does sound like Jim Belushi, though, if that counts.
    Function: Take a wild guess, 'cuz he doesn't know.

    Notes: There's a picture of him in my sig. Just a headshot. The idea behind him was to make a fan character that was not like any of these ShadowAngel Dragn-winged, daughter of Starscream (nothing against Seekers, Seekers are A-okay minus the name "seekers") guys, but a genuine freak of nature with no good qualties other than he's amusing to watch make a fool out of him self. He's the guy EVERYONE want's to bully at school.

    Ooooh, this is perfect for me. I've got a whole buch of 'em.
    Character Name: Spin-Out
    Faction: Autobot
    Alt-Mode: Communications van
    Weapons & Equipment: Has a right hand that converts into a satellite dish
    Special Abilities: Can shoot pulses of data out of his satellite dish hand, and can hack into any system in only a few seconds.
    Bio: SPIN-OUT Has always had pretty bad luck. It wasn't too long ago that he was a hacker, working in the seedy underbelly of information gathering since he was protoformed. However, despite never working with Decepticons, he was caught by the Elite Guard and brought to Autoboot Camp, were he befriended the large green Autobot Bulkhead. Spin-Out was kicked out of boot camp for his weak body and nervous behavior, and was assigned to Optimus Prime's Space Bridge repair crew. After suffering a nasty case of the Scraplets he caught while cleaning the ship, he was placed into a stasis pod and remained there for a long time...

    Eventually reawakening on Earth, Spin-Out was cured, but separated from his teammates. He walked around Detroit, eventually scanning a police communications van as his vehicle form. He then found his teammates, and continues to work with them as tech support for computer systems, and later, after the Decepticons were defeated once and for all, joined the Autobot Ministry of Science and created special drones used to repair Cybertron's infrastructure, living his lifelong dream.
    Notes & Errata: He's usually cowardly, but when things get rough, he'll try to fight. He's not very good at it though. However, if something needs computer work, he's your 'Bot. He also had a pet Lipole named Splodey, which passed on when it got spooked by a glitch mouse and, well, exploded. He's the guy in my avatar and signature, in his Protoform body.

    Name: Hybrid

    Everyone thinks Hybrid is annoying. He is, but he has good intentions at heart. Sadly, because of his smugness, he fails to get his real lessons across.



    Good luck I'm not offending anybody with that one....

    Character Name: Mind wipe
    Faction: Decepticon
    Alt-Mode: Earth Hurse
    Weapons & Equipment: Hypno-rays
    Special Abilities: Can hynotize victims, Six-sense
    Bio:Everyone does what Mindwipe says, that is after he hypnotizes them. Mindwipe is a master hypnotist. Using his powers to turn Autobots against each other, and sometimes against his Decepticon allies. To get in a high rank, get energon from them, or to have a little fun. He also is rumored to be able to speak with the dead, but has yet to show so.
    Notes & Errata: Pic: TFA Mindwipe Added shading by ~Armbullet on deviantART(Drawn by me)

    Team Polyhex

    Character Name: Straxus
    Faction: Decepticon Rebel
    Motto: "Survival of the fittest."
    Alt-Mode: Mobile Cannon Emplacement
    Weapons & Equipment: Carries a pair of hatchets that can combine into a heavy battle ax.
    Special Abilities: Straxus' battle ax can cut through anything, including the strongest alloys, force fields and energy beams.
    Bio: A Decepticon general during the Great War, Straxus was content to follow Megatron, as the Decepticon leader was the strongest warrior and most likely to achieve the Decepticon goals. Upon learning of Megatron's repeated defeats at the hands of an Autobot repair crew, Straxus has decided that Megatron is too weak to lead the Decepticons, and someone stronger must take charge. He and his team have broken off from the main Decepticon force and now seek to overthrow Megatron and take command of the Decepticons. Straxus' superiority complex and willingness to discard allies he sees as "weak" have earned him few friends.

    Character Name: Thunderwing
    Faction: Decepticon Rebel
    Motto: "There's no such thing as too much power."
    Alt-Mode (Basic Robot Form): Short-range interplanetary jump-ship
    Alt-Mode (Ultimate Robot Form): Interplanetary warship
    Weapons/Equipment (Basic Robot Form): Right arm transforms into a cyclone cannon
    Weapons/Equipment (Ultimate Robot Form): Full armament of an interplanetary warship, including plasma torpedoes, fusion-powered lasers and proton mines. Capable of utilizing transwarp drive and teleporters.
    Special Abilities: Thunderwing is able to control both of his bodies at the same time.
    Bio: At first glance, Thunderwing is a rather unimpressive Decepticon, standing just barely taller than Bumblebee and other small Autobots. The pilot of the Team Polyhex starship is constantly boasting about his battle prowess and raw power, to the scoffs and laughter of those who do not know his secret. For Thunderwing was designed by Tarantulas to be the Decepticon answer to Omega Supreme. His spark split between his small (basic) body and the Team Polyhex star-cruiser, Thunderwing is able to transform the team warship into his massive ultimate robot body. Thunderwing enjoys lulling his opponents into a false sense of security with his smaller form and then unleashing his ultimate body to reduce them to ashes. Thunderwing's basic robot form is physically very weak and either body "feels" damage inflicted on the other.

    Character Name: Sideways
    Faction: Now or later?
    Alt-Mode: Kawasaki motorcycle ftw
    Weapons & Equipment: Buster spear and null rays
    Special Abilities: His Buster sword is actually an EMp pulser capable of disabling another machines mechanical systems and sometimes causing temporary paralysis. Subject can also become viral and infect another mech and take control or hack major computer networks and decypher top secret documents. This ability can also be used to manipulate either faction to his liking
    Weaknesses: Sideways physical form can sustain damage in 'cyberspace' from fire walls or other viruses. His body is also vulnerable as his spark must vacate the shell in order to hack or overtake another frame. The Buster spear is capable of paralysing him rather his target if it doesn't connect, that being it is a mercy weapon.
    Bio: No one is quite certain where he comes from or which faction he fights for, Sideways is a constant drifter between the two. He isn't classified as merc or neutral as his current allegiance is indicated by a badge worn in his motorcycles chest casing. Rumors are floating around the stockades that he is searching for an Autobot by the name Spin-out, but for what is not known.
    Odd habbits: He collects manhole covers
