    And the final Prime vs. Animated match-up is:

    [​IMG] VS [​IMG]

    Airachnid vs TFA Blackarachnia!

    Scenario: Somewhere deep in a forest, Airachnid is prowling in spider mode when she encounters another black and purple giant spider in a giant web suspended between trees. The giant spider emits an unearthly cry and leaps for Airachnid. Airachnid dodges the giant spider. Then it transforms, revealing itself to be: TFA Blackarachnia! The spider fembots hiss vehemently then lash out with clawed fingers at one another.

    Which deadly spider fembot wins? The creepy, cold-blooded collector of endangered species or the former Autobot, techno-organic freak?

    Damn, this is a close one. Imma say Airachnid, because she seems to have the edge in strength and sheer screwed-up-mind-ness.

    Blackarachnia, due to the fact that she can actually transform.

    Considering that Airachnid has apparently wiped out entire species before, I think she might win in a fight. However, which character do I like more? I dunno. I'd say it's a tie.

    No idea, really. Blackarachnia fought once in her whole character life but it wasn't even a real fight because Optimus is all "omg cant touch mah girlfriend..." and Airchanich lost in combat easily but according to the show she killed alot of things before.

    You know what, both suck. No vote here. BW Tarantulas wins somehow.

    My vote: Blackarachnia

    Though we've only seen Airachnid once so far, from what I saw she didn't seem able to move very quickly in her "spider" mode. For the times when she needed a quick burst of speed, she reverted to her humanoid form and ran on two legs. Meanwhile, Blackarachnia is fast no matter what mode she's in.

    In Airachnid's skirmish with Arcee, she was quickly pinned to the ground. Had Jack not distracted Arcee, it's likely that Airachnid's career as a species hunter would've ended right there.

    With Blackarachnia, she's a hand-to-hand expert, displaying some fancy kung fu. Not to mention that she has the ability to sting someone with her over-the-shoulder spider legs, sap their energy, leave them weak and helpless, and copy their unique powers all in one go. She's brought down everyone on the Autobots' team at some point or another. While she may not get any powers from Airachnid that are terribly different from her own spider powers, she can still drain her of her energy.

    Blackarachnia would stomp all over Airachnid. :D

    Go into a fist fight with someone that can spit acid and unleash webs faster than Spiderman is not that much of a good idea.

    Uh, BlackArachnia can shoot webs like Airachnid (even swing from them) and she can steal powers.

    I know.
    But can she still Airachinid's powers before the juicy acid completely obliterate her head?

    My guess is she'll get her own Transformation later on.

    Airachnid. She's not Blackarachinda, She's like Lockdown's female counterpart.

    Blackarachnia, with her energy draining ability, has the edge.

    Airachnid.

    She can wipe out entire species and she's actually evil, not just an assumption like most Decepticons.

    I'm kinda amused that most the comments in the thread are supportive of Black Arachnia, but the actual votes are strongly in favour of Airachnid.

    For me, this one is a tie, don't care for either character.
