    Since Dark Energon has been able to bring back dead Transformers as zombies, I wonder if there is already an undead Transformer reanimated with Dark Energon, but a sentient and very deadly one. Ergo: a vampire Transformer, with amplified abilities and an insatiable taste for energon.

    It'd be great, if slightly freaky, to see a TRANSFORMER analogy of Alucard or Hunter D (famous anime vampires) appear. Such a new player to the game would raise the stakes constantly, with them being a threat to ALL around them (even if they choose the Autobot/Decepticon side to fight with).

    What do you think?

    i think its a great idea! I've been thinking about something like this. A bot that is a danger to all because of its unquenchable thirst for energon and by doing so it will get energon any way it can. That being to suck it out of bots if having to.

    Doubtful; sentience while under the influence of Dark Energon appears to be a luxury only afforded to one touched by the substance whilst still alive.

    Megatron and Starscream retain their minds and habits for the most part under its effect, but an undead Transformer is doomed to a primal animalistic nature.

    We do have that to an extent: Skyquake. He's still in the Shadowzone, but more zombie than vampire. I like the idea though.

    That would actually be neat. I could see this creature with a horde of spawn, hunted to Earth by an implacable monster hunter, Crosswise.

    On another tangent, Dark Energon could have been the fuel that powered a lot of supernatural horrors in the TFP universe, if the writers had gone with it.

    I'm reminded of the old "post your own episode idea" thread, where Gordon 4 posted his idea about the Ravagers, cowled wraiths who drained the energy from their victims, and who were indiscriminate about their victims.

    Dead End would be the perfect choice for this. He's already got a design!

    Yes. Hell It goes well with idea of basing the Stunticons off the Seven Deadly Sins. Dead End is Gluttony.

    So it must be an energy or psychic vampire right? there are many species of unconventional vampires in world vampire mythology than the tradition one you see in Hollywood pictures.

    This vampire transformer must be similar to the vampires from movies like Lifeforce, Captain Kronos Vampire Hunter, Sleepwalkers, Molesar from The Keep and The Skeckis from The Dark Crystal

    As long as the vampire doesn't twinkle, it'd be cool.

    Remember the RtoF scout Dead end? His bio had him as a vampire, and the head sculpt had teeth.

    I think Blood (He probably wouldn't be an Pretender), would make a better choice.

    With Thundertron and possible other beast mode transformers coming up, that could be a great way to bring in a BW Rampage nod. Have him be like a Vampire Transformer, is kept alive forever by sucking oil from Autobots and Decepticons. Then bring in Depth Charge to be like a Vampire hunter.

    But a Vampire transformer has to be cool, Vampires don't sparkle. A cool Vampire is like Spike or Angel.

    Or he could be like Hellsing's Alucard, or Dracula before modern media made him a parody of himself.

    Edit: I really like that profile for RotF Deadend. Rampage is a good idea as well.

    i like the energy vamp idea and i know how to tie it in one of the first artifacts extracted energon the guy that invented it made an "improved" version and installed it in his own frame in the process of sucking in some energon from some random bot he picked the wrong guy hitting a con carrying a small dark energon crystal to megs/shockwave/whoever for some research that dark energon, focused through the siphon and into his body, re-crystalizes in his spark causing a transformation into a vampire like bot
