    Some characters have only appeared in a single episode of a series. Some of them are good enough to be seen again but never have appeared since their original appearance. Which one shot characters do you want to see again?

    Transmutate- This guy/girl/it was actually pretty good. It was very innocent and you could feel sympathy for it. Plus it brought out a different side in another character that we had not seen before. Ramoage always had a cynical and sadistic personality but when he saw Transmutate, he felt sympathy for it and even gave it genuine friendship. I wouldn't mind seeing a character like this again. It is a nice twist to showing the lughter side of villains other than romantic interest.

    Nightbird- Interesting concept.

    I don't know if Lockdown would count...three episodes and a very small part in the Drift comic. But if Lockdown doesn't count then Nightbeat.

    Erector.

    His single animated appearance in a Micromasters Commercial showed real star potential, with a performance likened by some critics* to that of Brando in the Godfather. However times struck hard and he couldn't get another gig like that, always losing out to Goldbug and the Throttlebots. He turned to hard Energon. You can sometimes see him stumbling around Maccadam's, talking about the good old days and what could've been.

    The kid had real acting chops. He deserves... he needs to be given a chance to shine. Next time it'll be Oscar-winning stuff kids. I guarantee it.

    Oscar and BAFTA-winning stuff. BAFTA's where the real class is. That brief performance, those few seconds of shining brilliance which earned him so many standing ovations can't be all Erector has to offer... can it?

    I've always had a soft spot for Spanner, the neutral scientist who was built into a bridge back in one arc of the Marvel comic. Now that the RID comic is focusing so much on neutrals, now would be the perfect time to revisit him (hopefully without the unfortunate embridgening). Let the poor guy have some kind of canon legacy other than being nightmarishly mutilated. :( 

    Seconded! There's some cool potential with Nightbird. If she was clearly shown to be sentient (*gasp* not that old can of worms!), it could open up a story about whether or not a human-made robot could ever be accepted in Transformer society, or have her struggle with which faction to be a part of. And I have to admit finding the possible love connection with Megatron to be intriguing. :lol

    Up until very recently I would have said Straxus, but I think he's already gotten an outstanding amount of love for a (formerly) obscure character. Sure, he did have two issues under his belt, and a few more (very odd) cameos in the UK comic, but that's still not much for a guy who gets a brand-new-toy with an all-new-mold to boot. And cameos in the Allspark Almanack II too.

    Are we to take "one-shot" literally, as in a character who has only had a single appearance?
