    defining what one of these is a little hard and ambiguous, so open to debate. But basically its a character who rarely gets much development or a major role within the major story arc but often steals a scene doing or saying something cool or funny. here are some examples to give you an idea if my explanation wasn't good enough.

    slipstream (animated)
    strika (beast machines)
    swindle (animated)
    knockout (prime)
    whirl (idw)
    depending on the continuity soundwave

    On Prime, Unicron ["UNICRON IS POWER INCARNATE!"] is a bigo one. Unicron might be a big villain, but he appeared in, what, five episodes? And even then, he was barely used as a character, serving more as a plot device for the threat of the armageddon [thanks due the writer's utter incompetence] that the heroes need to stop. The guy is a One Scene-Wonder who stole the show comepletely. All because of John Noble's excellent voice-acting.

    On the movies, we have many. ROTF-Jetfire is by far, the most memorable thing about ROTF, He's one of the most remembered and loved characters of the movieverse despite having less than ten minutes of screen-time, the guy really stole everyone's thunder with ease. In the same movie, we had Herr Doktor Scalpel, who is quite an amusing character, despite literally having only four lines and less than two minutes of screen-time.

    In DOTM, we had the delightfully psychotic Laserbeak, by far the best version of the character. In a way, Sentinel Prime also counts, because he is today considered one of the best characters of Transformer ever and widely acclaimed for his depth of personality. So he sort of steals everyone's thunder in a franchise-wide scale.

    Though Overlord's exaggerating to the fucking extreme, I have to say Jetfire and Sentinel are good scene-stealers. I also love Movie Sideswipe.

    Strika/Obsidian from Beast Machines. Soundwave in Prime. Roadbuster from DOTM. I'd say Jetfire in ROTF, but he's the focus of the movie for a good ten minutes. That hardly makes him a side character.
