    I'm having a memory problem. Who are all the characters that we know of, whether from comics or cartoons or whatever, that have had the title Prime in their name?

    The only ones I can think of are:
    Optimus
    Rodimus
    Vector
    Nemesis
    Sentinel
    Nova
    Longarm (from Animated)

    Are there others I don't know about? Seems like there should be more.

    Well Ginrai is Power Master Prime, and there is Omega Prime. But there are more Prime's they are just Convoy instead. And Primal if you include him, I guess Primal Prime too, if you are including toys.

    Alpha and Guardian Prime from the G1 Dreamwave comics. And Prime Nova (not to be confused with Nova Prime) was the second bearer of da Matrix per the Marvel Comics continuity.

    The TF Wiki also mentions a Modus Prime minicon from the Classics toyline, as well as Prima, Primon, and Primus... if you really wanna get techincal... were all among the original Primes.

    There's also my personal favorite, Prime Rib, from the Beef "What's for Dinner" continuity.

    I'd have to agree. For a chain of command to work, all of them couldn't be Prime's. You'd need some officers that outrank others. I'm pretty sure only those that have mentioned it in the show are Prime's; being Optimus, Sentinel and Longarm.

    Let's see...straight from the TF Wiki disambiguation page for Prime we have (not counting each use of the name - it's not necessary):

    -Optimus Prime
    -Rodimus Prime
    -Prime Nova
    -Nova Prime
    -Sentinel Prime
    -Alpha Prime
    -Guardian Prime
    -Omega Prime
    -Leo Prime
    -Primal Prime
    -Vector Prime
    -Nemesis Prime
    -Modus Prime
    -Longarm Prime

    If you wanna be technical you could add Gorlam Prime...but that's a planet.

    I'm not gonna bother with all the Convoys. But here's an interesting factoid: all of the planet leaders from TF Cybertron are Convoys in Japan. You've got Nitro Convoy (Override), Live Convoy (Evac), Flame Convoy (Scourge) and Megalo Convoy (Metroplex) in addition to your standard Galaxy Convoy (Optimus).

    Besides, Jazz Prime sounds silly.
