    Sorry, still catching up on this show. Is Knockout supposed to be Wildrider/Dead End? I always get the black and red Stunticons mixed up.

    Knock Out is supposed to be Knock Out, he is not a Stunticon.

    Besides Prime, Ratchet, and Starscream, none of the characters look G1.

    Knock Out is 100% new, the similiraties start and end at the fact that both have red alt modes.

    Stunticons are not in the show.

    Knock Out's name was supposed to be Lugnut. Buuuuut... it wasn't sexy enough. :3

    Knock Out (Prime) - Transformers Wiki

    But other than that, I don't think he's based on a TF from a previous series, and I don't think he's supposed to be one of the Stunticons. (Plus, he's not crazy enough to be Wildrider, and he's not morbid enough to be Dead End, so...)

    Knock Out is Knock Out.

    Knockout, as others have said, is a 100% new guy. Of course he is, how could someone that cool be based on a stuffy old Stunticon, only there to be Menasor's leg!? Knockout would be insulted by your remark!

    Starscream looks literally nothing like his G1 character.

    Starscream still got some obviously G1 elements like cockpit chest and his missile arms are obviously meant to look like his null rays.

    Also Wheeljack and Breakdown both have a lot of G1 influence on them, Skyquake too.

    That thing in his abdomen is supposed to be his cockpit? I thought it was just some more random metal and wires running through. Guess not.

    Well considering it's on the same place the cockpit on the toy is, the fact it's colored like his cockpit, shaped like his cockpit and got reflections like his cockpit I think It's pretty safe to say it's his cockpit.

    I'm sort of curious Sonscreen, why did you think Knock Out was supposed to be a Stunticon anyways? I'm not being sarcastic, I'd just like to know :) 

    In the show his vehicle mode cockpit is black and his robot mode abdomen cockpit is the reflective silver-gold color. I still think that is indeed his cockpit in his stomach though. It would be weird if it weren't. I mean, every single Starscream ever has had the cockpit chest/stomach except the BWII reformatted version (which technically wasn't even Starscream) and Transtech Screamer.

    Oh, I saw him next to Breakdown, and Knockout is a red car so I kind of thought he was an update. Like I said still catching up. :)

    His chest is also a homage to his Movie counterpart - it is designed similar to the movie head.

    Starscream in my Starscream XD.

    The lankiness of Animated Starscream.

    The attitude of G1 Starscream...and then some.

    Have I mentioned I love Blum's take on the voice yet? I think I have XD.

    Knockout is supposed to be the Decepticon Tracks.

    He's his own charecter in other words.

    It seems he may've been called "Lugnut" at one point in time, but we're not fully sure on this. Though, apart from the fatalism, he's similar to Dead End in the sense of being a red sports car, works with Breakdown, and is vain in appearances (I guess Dead End wasn't fully nihilist as he cared for what he looked like).

    But that's about the extent of it. So there's similarities, but I'm sure that if you really REALLY pushed it far enough, you could probably compare Knock Out to Animated Blitzwing.
