    If Superman fans can live with Multi-coloured Kyptonite, then we can live with Multi-coloured Energon. It's not that big of a deal.

    Damn, I'm in the minority here. Well I guess they're kinda cool, but the Prime writers can never seem to come up with a new MacGuffin, other than a new type of Energon. Which, well, I guess isn't always a bad thing...

    It's another random plot device that's random shit from Cybertron that "just happens" to be on Earth, so yes, it kind of bothers me, but not in the way I think it bothers the OP.

    We only have 5 types of Energon, and 3 of those (Dark, Toxic, & Red) are rare as fuck. Doesn't seem that big of a deal to me, IMO.

    The Energon Rainbow grows, all the time (though it does have two shades of green instead of one). As long as they don't start adding Energon that has completely absurd effects (like the Kryptonite Rainbow), I'm okay with this.

    Nope, the different variations of Energon in Prime do not bother me.

    It's not like they've maxed out the rainbow and are resorting to stuff like Tartan and Woodland pattern energon.

    That would piss me off, but also be ridiculously funny at the same time.

    yes, I think it bugs me because there is no mention of these different typoes of energon until they are found. Oh look Red Energon, it just so hapens to do this, and the fact that they are all on earth.
    Hypergon made me giggle, I thought a cure to Hyper gon would be "ritalin-gon"

    Only thing that bugs me is that Energon is now the Transformers' Kryptonite... with one major difference of course: the "regular" version is beneficial rather than harmful.

    How many types are there now again?

    Regular Energon... lifeforce for TFs.
    Dark Energon... blood of Unicron the Chaos Bringer, can revive fallen TFs into zombie-like monstrosities.
    Synth-En... imperfect version of something cooked up by ancient 'Bots... due to this, it works very much like Steroids. Lots of power, but become very brash and short-tempered.
    Tox-En... a "Relic" version of energon that's toxic. (Kryptonite! Yay!)
    Red Energon... Zoom around with a big red flash of speed!

    Would prefer it to be a different Cybertronian substance/fuel source; for the sake of world building.

    But I suppose when you've got a brand to maintain and don't want to confuse your audience; its just a different color of energon.

    I wasn't, though Red Energon and the idea that is specifically allows the ability of super speed does. I'd be less annoyed by Red Energon if it was more an additive of some kind that could be mixed to produce extra effects (potentially random but powerful) or did stuff like allow the bonuses of Synth-En without the negative side effects rather than specifically granting 'hyperspeed'.

    It is a bit annoying to me. Seems like just another macguffin that just happened to appear on Earth.
    Jack even acknowledged that a bunch of Cybertronian crap ALWAYS seems to end up on Earth
    , so I'm hoping the writers have an explanation for it soon. Prime is not a bad show, but that's one of the few aspects of it that is just ridiculous.

    I like the variety, but not really how they pup up like they were MacGuffins for both sides to find and use on each other.
