    Who would it be?

    Mine would easily be Fred from Armada. He ruined Armada for me. Arggh, so annoying.

    Optimus: Fred, you have to pull the lever to stop the universe from being destroyed!

    Fred: But I'm hungry!

    I think it might be interesting to erase Starscream from G1. In as much as he was always a thorn in Megatron's side, he also pointed out crucial flaws in stratagies, and it would be neat to see how much more or less often the Decepticons would win battles without him. It would make for a good alternate reality, maybe.

    Rad from Armada. Even if he wasn't one of THE most annoying characters in all of TF history, anyone named "Rad" should be beat senseless every day of their life anyway, and his parents too for giving him such a stupid name.

    Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime for sure. He is my least favorite character and a total looser.

    You can't blame the parents for that one. Rad's just a nickname; his real name was Bradley. You probably can't blame Rad for it either in all likelihood, though; let's face it, people very rarely pick their own IRL nicknames; it's more likely something that stuck in school somewhere (maybe he was being mocked for not keeping up with the trends... :p ).

    Sunstorm. A pointless repaint, made into a ridiculous character in the DW comics.

    If we are going the eHobby route, what about Hauler? That was the green Grapple... right?

    Otherwise I am really having a hard time with this question.

    Without whom a lot of things wouldn't get built. He may whinge, but he gets stuff done, so he's far from pointless.

    Ooh, good answer.

    Hauler's barely (if at all) a character - one fleeting appearance in the pilot in vehicle mode with no lines; he might as well be a drone.
    Erasing him would make no difference to the universe in any way, shape, or form - with the possible exception that they'd have had to have called someone else to pull Hound out of the ravine (possibly someone who existed).

    Hot Rod. With him gone the whole TF: the movie would of been Prime kicking Glavatrons ass all over the place.

    See, that is why I would pick him. Even though he was technically in the show, removing him from existance would not affect anything one way or another.

    But without Hot Rod... *puts on flame retardant suit*, we wouldn't have gotten Rodimus Prime. I feel he was a more interesting leader than Op because of his flaws. It was a nice change to season 3 for me.

    Some good suggestions already.
    Totally. I don't see the appeal of a yellow seeker anyway, and I really don't understand how a fandom that moans every time Hasbro does a single repaint can clamour for the Seeker mold to have ANOTHER repaint.
    Oh, so very true. And, to be honest, I'd go with this. Hot Rod and the characters he's inspired (stupid, reckless but supposed to be the future hero) are so $*"&ing annoying.

    I'd like to add G1 Arcee as a contender. What did she ever DO? She was pink and had less character in a movie and TV season than Elita-1 and her posse showed in one episode.
