    In Autoboot Camp, Sentinel Minor gives the new bots their names. Most bots can be explained, like Ratchet and Prowl.

    But Optimus? Rodimus? Ultra? o_O  How exactly would one justify that?

    I've even got a small list. :D 

    Optimus

    Rodimus

    Ultra

    Sentinel

    Any others? Do the Decepticons do the same thing?

    Sentinel is easy.

    The only good thing he did in his whole training at all was guarding the base.

    Rodimus could be a reference to his hot rod VROOM VROOM!

    And Optimus was the best of his class some thousand years ago. Ultra was better then the best back then several million years ago.

    Jazz probably chose the name himself.

    Arcee... uh... Arcee... where did that name come from anyway?

    I'm more concerned about codenames like 'Wasp' or "Bumblebee'...:D ..but it's a cartoon after all. Things like this pop up all the time, just like how can Blitzwing know an Earth nursery rhyme before he gets to earth? :p

    Probably correct on Optimus. Ultra Magnus says in Arrival #5 how he expects great things from Optimus.

    Jazz probably had a hobby of listening to transmissions from some far off planet which were like jazz and got the name that way. Or he was just a fan of Cybertronian brand jazz.

    Arcee was from the Great Wars, it is entirely possible that back then the whole system was different and there was no Autoboot Camp with sergeant major to assign you a name.

    1. Well the Transformers do seem to know of organic life forms,
    and we've seen aliens that are simmilar to earth animals(the giant spiders).
    I don't see why they can't have knowledge of alien Bees and Wasps.

    2. Blitzwing's insanity transcends time and space.

    Everyone thinks Blitzwing is crazy, he has simply embraced the chaos caused by the Unicron Singularity. If they only knew.

    Maybe...
    She did everything she was told, so she was 'remote controlled' by her instructor.

    Just my guess...

    The Autoboot camp isn't the Autobot Academy.

    If it was then the other bots really over glorify Optimus Prime for going to the Autobot Academy.(Don't worry I know that it wasn't)

    I always thought Ultra was a rank, like Prime and minor, and plus In the elite guard episode Bumblebee says "So thats why they call him Ultra Magnus"

    Rodimus mentioned that he was on his way to MAGNUS.
