    I think I'm the only one voting for G1 Reflector. He was three Decepticons that transformed into one tiny camera. I mean seriously a tiny camera? Not to mention they were pushed for as recon for the Decepticons, yet made redundant by Laserbeak. This often lead them to mostly standing around in the background of Megatron's troop, not doing much until they just eventually disappeared with a word. They could have had the potential to be interesting had they done more, or if their camera form was used for more for trickery to the humans. Kind of like how Soundwave was nearly always brushed off as a simple boombox by the humans. But nope, they couldn't even do that.

    Reflector hands down. Though more useful in IDW, the G1 cartoon versions did nothing. "I'm going to shoot you... photoshoot you, that is!" should be their motto :) 

    But to be honest they were kinda cool.

    Well if they did something other than stand around then I wouldn't feel this way. Hadn't read the IDW comics (though I quit because they kept turning my favorites in psychopaths), so my experience with them is solely from the G1 cartoon.

    If you twist my arm though I'd say the TLK cons. I excepted them to last until the end of the movie, at least...

    I'd have to go with Animated Blackarachnia. It's fairly obvious they were trying to recapture the whole sensual Dark Action Girl the original from Beast Wars had, but she just couldn't pull it off. Every single plan she had she had to be rescued from, and the attempt to use her as a point to humanize Sentinel Prime just fell flat because frankly I didn't care about the guy.

    G1 Skywarp also gets a vote for squandering his power and just basically being a back-up dancer for Starscream. Sure Thundercracker had a similar problem, but at least he got his scene with Skyfire in Fire In The Sky to show he had his own thoughts. I can't think of any point Skywarp wasn't just background noise.

    Yeah, it's a shame Skywarp didn't get a chance to show his personality (from his tech specs) on the show. A Decepticon who plays mean pranks on his teammates, that could have been great.

    The entire Animated line outside of Starscream was pretty bad. Animated Megatron is an idiot for losing to a bunch of weaklings. Lugnut had a good design but his voice and personality killed off any chance of him becoming a great character. BlackArachnia was an edgelord supreme who never did manage to lord her edges very well. Her plans were stupid and her entire mutation was her own fault. While i appreciated his

    Energon Snowcat and Demolisher go without saying.

    Movie Dreadbot and Onslaught because they got killed off too easily, but I hope the latter went to a place with bigger doors.

    RID Filch just might be the most most annoying TF character in any media since Animated Bumblebee and comics Swerve and Nickel.

    Beast Wars Scorponok and Terrorsaur. The former was loyal but he was so pathetic and weak that it wasn't even funny. Thank god for Waspinator. Terrorsaur was just a half baked Starscream and it showed.

    Comics Nickel because she is just a bad character with an awful name is not relevant to anything. (but I guess that's the comics in general)

    Reflector was the most reliable he always did his job and completed tasks.

    Movie Onslaught. He died in seconds without a fight or much of a personality.

    Sticking to G1-Animated, however, I don't recall much going on with Reflector. I guess he does have the three bodies thing going for him...

    RID Ped? But then that's pretty much his whole thing - he's supposed to be lame. And despite that, he manages to trap all the Autobots in a pit, so is he actually a badass for that? Is he even a contender since his whole character is intended to be lame?

    ...fuck it, I'll just go with Energon Snowcat and TrukkMunky to avoid confusion.
