    I was watching some energon DVDs recently. I just noticed something that I think is just way too funny!

    Say the name "Alpha Q" five times fast. Listen to what it sounds like.

    That must be why he was so friendly with Kicker. Watch out for those mechanical tentacles! :lol

    Those of us with the comedic maturity of a 3rd grader pointed this out back when Energon was on. So congrats on your sense of humor deevolving.

    no, not names that mean or imply stuff specifically, but they're pronunciation can sound like a completely different word or phrase.

    For example Alpha Q sounds like "I'll F*** You".

    Or like in the Beverly Hillbillies movie, "Happiness is Hard to find" sounded like "A P***s is hard to find.

    Well Jhiaxus was intended as a pun for "Gee, Axe Us?" but otherwise there probably aren't too many others

    Yeah, Alpha Q... crazy alien with tentacles, and five faces and strangely enough... 5 girls on the show. Misha, Sally, Alexis, Miranda, Arcee. Coincidence?

    Worse if you get the chase version, and have a black Discharge.
