    > have literally less than 3 mins of screentime
    > be in arguably the worst film in the series
    > Be a total OC
    > Be a literal molding of 2 pre made models

    BUT

    > Somehow become a fan favorite
    > Somehow become one of the most loved characters in the series
    > Somehow garner a following of fans and memes
    > Somehow become one of the most quoted characters in TF
    > Somehow be loved by people who dont even like the films
    > Get fanart from the IDW artist

    That's just the power of Nitro Zeus.

    One line:
    "I know where you live, Enrique, say hello to your wife for me!"



    It's rare for movie Decepticons to throw around sass at humans. (Though I have to wonder why Enrique would let Zeus know about his wife to begin with)

    The information given about Nitro Zeus mentioned that he was constantly hacking the local grid and had a lot of personal data on his captors.
    Much to their dismay.

    It helps that he survived up to end of the film and has a good toy.

    It's official, here are the last words of our "hero" -
    Nitro Zeus: I'm hilarious and you will quote everything I say.

    If They continue with this story line and characters, he will be back. He has become to popular, much like barricade did for them to not bring him back.

    I remember, how just after the first watching people were outraged, because of those Decepticon idiots, those silly phrases, reusing previous models for most of them, introducing through Suicide Squad knock-off and silly way to kill them all. But after a couple of months people SUDDENLY start to praise Nitro Zeus and Mohawk. This shows unumbigiously, how people depend from others' opinion - someone said, that Nitro Zeus is cool and many started to repeat it like parrots, forgetting, yeah, that he is weak, useless, have unoriginal appearance and said prominent usually-getting-so-much-hatred cringe joke. Seriously, guys, your way of thinking is just ridiculous. The same with the "fact" that Michael Bay is moron and Movies are "bad" , that AOE "must" be about Dinobots, that TF1 is the best, that Wonder Woman is "great" and Romeo and Juliet scene is "unbearable". I see the stupidness on this forum every day.

    After multiple films of the decepticons being nothing but scowling beasts, bland alien speech, and boring characterization, of course we jump up to praise the few characters who ACTUALLY have character. Even if they do show up for about 2 mins of actually screen time.

    I really hope he shows up in future Transformers media as Shockwave's annoying brother, but still being a really effective hacker who just happens to talk too much.

    Agreed. I liked him. Just wished they changed his head design. But I was glad they did more with him because his design is bad ass. And I’m sure he’ll show up in later media. And I hope he is somehow related to Shockwave, that would be awesome.

    Because the standards were so impossibly low, he blew away everyone's expectations by simply having a discernible personality.

    Exactly. People seem to confuse having a bit of a personality with being a character. The Autobots in AoE aren't characters, they're personalities. Same applies with the Cons in this movie. If any con in these movies says or does something that isn't a generic movie monster/villain trope than it automatically gives them the status of "best movie character" (with all that being said, I do like Nitro Zeus more so in concept rather than execution).
