Not too long ago, there was a thread started in this section where people could state which faction (Autobot, Decepticon, etc) they'd join. Working somewhat along the same lines, suppose you're a veteran soldier for the faction you threw your lot in with - one who's fought alongside and against pretty much every character from your faction and that of the enemy (pick one universe only for the setting and characters, e.g. G1, Beast Era, Unicron Trilogy, Animated, etc). Who among them would you consider (a) valuable allies, (b) worthy adversaries, (c) and (d) the opposites of both... and why? My list (Animated-verse 'Con POV): Valuable Allies Swindle - he may sell his services dearly, but his products and their sheer quality could very well spell the difference between victory and defeat. Lugnut - his loyalty to the cause, along with the firepower he packs, pretty much guarantee sterling assistance in a fight. Shockwave - eh excels at intelligence work and doesn't afraid of infiltration. The ultimate inside source. Not-So-Valuable Allies Starscream - the guy's a trecherous schemer. I wouldn't trust him as far as I could throw him. Skywarp - useless coward. Blitzwing - he may be my favorite character on the show, but I'd probably be extremely jittery about him IRL. There's no telling what his instability might lead to. Worthy Adversaries Blurr - that speed of his.. it nearly can't be beat. Without proper preperations, I'd have stasis cuffs on me before I even knew it. Prowl - he's astute, crafty and resourceful. The Dinobots - they may be untempered, but they pack a hell of a punch. Not-So-Worthy Adversaries Bumblebee - insubordinate punk. Seperated from his friends, he's nothing.
