Although, I'm not a big fan of story telling where in each episode focuses in the limelight of each character. However, Animated has done a wonderful job of giving character devopement for each main character (Optimus, Ratchet, Prowl,Bulkhead, and Bumblebee). Right? I'l go through the episodes and see if its true. Transform and Roll Out technically focuses on all five characters since the writers are just introdoucing them to the audience. Therefore, it doesn't count in this Home Where the Spark Is is a Prowl-centric episode due to how the writers focus on his love for nature Total Meltdown is a Bumblebee-centric episode due to him showing of his skills Blast from The Past is a Bulkhead-centric episode due to overcoming his clumsiness Thrill of the Hunt is a Ratchet-centric episode due to his past with Lockdown Nanosec is a Bumblebee-centric episode again due to his rivlary with Nanosec Along Came A Spider is an Optimus-centric episode due to his flashbacks involving BlackArachnia Sound and Fury is a Bulkhead-centric episode due to him trying to protect Sari from Soundwave Lost and Found is a Ratchet-centric episode due to his concerns for Sari and his teammates Survival of the Fittest is a Prowl-centric episode despite it being a team up episode. However, I take in account the factors of Bulkhead getting knocked out in the second half and Jeff Bennett doing double duty as Prowl and Fanzone who is also in character spotlight Headmaster is an obvious Bulkhead-centric episode. Nature Calls is an automic Bumblebee-centric episode due to having Prowl being being infected at the second half of the episode The Megatron Rising two parter puts Optimus Prime's leadership skills to the test. The first three episodes of season two are all episodes that focus on how Optimus Prime's superiors see him. Garbage In, Garbage Out is a Ratchet-centric episode due to Ratchet trying overcoming his grumpiness and trying to help Wreck-Gar. Velocity is an obvious Bumblebee-centric episode due to him trying to prove something on his own. Rise of Constructicons is a Bulkhead-centric episode due to his relationship with the Constructicons Fistful of Energon is a Prowl-centric episode due to him trying to play fire with fire. S.U.V. is a Bumblebee-centric episode due to him trying to prove something on his own. Autoboot Camp is a Bumblebee-centric episode due to his flashbacks Black Friday is an Optimus -centric episode due to his team-up with Grimlock Not sure about Sari, No One's Home A Bridge Too Close's part one focuses on Bulkhead's love for art and his usage of building the space bridge Part two focuses on the friendship of Ratchet and Omega Supreme Summary (excluding pilot) Optimus has seven episodes focusing on him Ratchet has four while Prowl has three. Bulkhead has five episodes focusing on him while Bumblebee has SIX. 1st place: Optimus (7 episodes)- Funny how most people complained about Optimus not having enough episodes 2nd: Bumblebee (6 episodes)- Stupid kid character 3rd: Bulkhead (5 episodes)- Average amount of spotlight for best written character of series so far 4th: Ratchet (4 episodes)- Not bad for an old timer character 5th: Prowl (3 episodes)- Sucks for an awesome character Not including the human characters THOUGHTS on this?
