    Did Megatron ever said to Starscream that he is in charge when he is not here? Cause we see in almost every episodes that Starscream nominates himself as futur leader without a vote from the other Decepticons, like in the episode "The Search For Alpha Trion", Rumble argues with Starscream about Megatrons plans as Screamer simply tells Rumble that when Megatron is not around he's in charge.

    Thanks

    Not really. Starscream, I think maybe once or twice, was put in charge of a small group, but the only reason none of his "I'm leader now!" rants are contested is because the other Decepticons don't really seem to care.

    Really neither side vocally stated someone as being second in command. I just always assumed Starscream and Ironhide to be second in command as they were always the ones shown taking command when Optimus or Megatron weren't around.

    Starscream is undoubtedly a high ranking officer in Megatron's army being air commander. How high is questionable, but much higher than the mere grunts that are the coneheads, Reflector, and the other seekers.

    Megatron seems to have three lieutenants in Starscream, Soundwave, and Shockwave. Shockwave is back on Cybertron, Soundwave appears to be a loyal soldier more than anything, so yeah, it's usually the ambitious Starscream who steps up.

    As others have said though, the Decepticons can't really take him seriously because he tries this every other week, and peace is usually restored by the end of the day.

    Shockwave is truly Megatron's 2nd in Command. Starscream pretends to imagine he's 2nd in Command because he thinks he's so great. He's like a kid who decided today i'm a astronaut or i'm a used car salesman.

    He's quite a pathetic chap you know.

    Considering how Starscream was declaring himself the new leader every time Megatron was kinda remotely vaguely defeated, I guess none of the other Decepticons took him seriously.

    "Megatron has tripped on a doorstop! That makes me the new leader of the Decepticons!"

    In the cartoon???Hardly.

    Shockwave was a glorified house sitter.

    He even bowed to Starscream when he proclaimed leadership.
