    Simply put.
    Optimus Prime had Megatron
    Blaster had Soundwave
    Metroplex had Trypticon

    Did the other Autobot's have a rival that they most frequently battled with? Example, who did Jazz usually fight against?

    There's Depth Charge and Rampage from BW too.

    And I guess Lockdown turned out to be Prowl's rival in TFA.

    Fortress Maximus had Scorponok. That's the only example I can think of off the top of my head, but I'm sure there's many more.

    EDIT: Beaten to it by Thundershot

    Silly me, I forgot about Fort Max and Scorponok as well as Dinobots and Constructicons. Actually, I thought it was Omega Supreme and the Constructicons?

    Not directly (there's no "rivals" page, nor do I think there should be). And it's the TFWiki.

    Anyway, Quickstrike from Beast Wars basically had a rivalry with anyone who dared to say he's not the toughest of them all.

    Then there's all the combiner rivalry like Combaticons vs. Protectobots, Terrorcons vs. Technobots, Stunticons vs. Aerialbots, etc. I think the Predacons hated the Dinobots as well.

    Ooh! Shockwave and Lugnut had bit of a rivalry going in the last two episodes of Animated.

    Chopperface, I think we should clarify whether the topic is stating about competitive/on-the-same-side rivalries or antagonistic/archenemy rivalries. I was under the impression that this topic was about the latter.

    I thought it was interesting that Shattered Glass likes to give their characters the color scheme of a rival or "opposite number" on the other side, i.e. Cyclonus in traditional Hot Rod colors. Though I think that has as much or more to do with toys that came out at the same time to "oppose" each other (i.e. Abominus and Computron get the color-swap) than with actual in-fiction rivalry.
