    like wih Prime and Minor, do you think "One" could be a rank as well?

    Could be, though until we hear/see another character with the same rank, I'm just going to count it as part of her name.

    Raven's. Man, that is the funniest sig I've seen in a long time!

    Returning to the topic at hand, I think the 'One' in Elita's name isn't a rank at all, as she, Optimus and Sentinel (who lacked their 'Prime' suffixes at the time) appeared to be of equal enough rank to be chummy in the flashback shown during 'Along Came a Spider'.

    A '1' would be someone still in basic training.

    The only problem with this statement is that in 'Autoboot Camp', where Bee and the others were undergoing BT, none of them had the suffix '1' attached to their names.

    Man, Torque, I clicked on your sig. To say that I was blown away would be an understatement...

    I don't think "One" is a rank. I think it was just a part of a similar nomenclature to Optimus' name when the character was created.

    "Optimus" => optimal or best => elite => "Elita"

    "Prime" => unique or first => "One"

    Awesome vids, though.

    Eh, hard to say really. They're shoehorning names in as best they can.
