    Perhaps this is a bit of a useless thread but I was wondering what everyone's favorite characters are, in separate continuities. I ask this because, well, I have so many favorite characters that it's hard to say overall which ones I like the most. So I'll start with the four continuities I enjoy the most...

    Decepticons: Soundwave, DOTM Megatron, Laserbeak, Hatchet, Crowbar

    War for Cybertron

    Autobots: Air Raid, Warpath, Ironhide, Bumblebee, Omega Supreme
    Decepticons: Soundwave, Megatron, Breakdown, Skywarp

    Decepticons: Megatron, Starscream, Soundwave, Breakdown

    BW:
    Easily Rampage, as a kid I loved him because I thought he was the Razorclaw toy I had

    BM:
    Obsidian.

    Armada:
    Demolishor, freaking great character

    Cybertron:
    Thunderblast and Scourge together, those two were simply hilariously stupid.

    Movie:
    Laserbeak hands down.

    Animated:
    Ratchet. Don't care about aloof Prowl and generic young leader Optimus, Ratchet was THE character of the show and had THE character arc too. Surprising too because I thought all he was going to be was a screaming old man nagger.

    Prime:
    Can't decide between KnockOut and Breakdown, but I'll go with Breakdown because he actualy got a character arc going on.

    I'm only going to comment on continuities I'm very familiar with:

    G1: Optimus Prime, Rodimus, Kup, Grimlock, Thundercracker,
    Beast Wars/Beast Machines: Optimus Primal, Waspinator, Megatron, Cheetor
    Movieverse: Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, Sentinel Prime
    Animated: Optimus Prime, Lugnut, Bulkhead, Blitzwing, Ratchet
    Prime: Arcee, Jack, Starscream, Ratchet

    My list is probably fluid though, it changes. I like most characters in general, so these are probably my "favorite of the day".
