    I'm not talking about his character, but rather than his relationship with fans and creators.

    Starscream became popular because of fandom demand, and fans demanded - and got - far more Starscream for their enjoyment, even going so far as to announce him as the best TF character ever (for many fans, not all of the fans). However, the writers always seem to screw with Starscream just to screw with the fans and keep them on their toes, teasing them with Starscream's quest for glory (his character bio in Animated was especially Duffy Duckie in that respect).

    Anyone else who gets that vibe?

    I can sort of see it.

    He's the jerkass underdog and it's probably why we like him in the first place, you can't help but sympathize with him.

    I don't think it's because of the fans, it's because of the character's very nature that he gets screwed over. He is selfish, petty, slimy, he is the nastiest Decepticon around in MANY aspects and sadly for him karma exists. Starscream's misery is the natural development of his actions, not the writers doing it for the sake of teasing his fans.

    Sorry about misspelling folks. English is not my native language, and I haven't seen Daffy's name written in Latin letters.

    Starscream doesn't die in everyone episode and comes back. Waspinator is Kenny.

    Starscream is Daffy becuase he's the likeable jerk that we're rooting for.....everything bad to happen to him. :p

    I think Starscream is also kind of like Eddy from Ed' Edd' n Eddy and maybe a bit like Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes! Seeing how those characters are likeable jerks too!:lol

    For some reason, this just makes me feel sorry for Starscream.

    He said that because the OP called him "Duffy Duck" not Daffy Duck.
