    Two names in question: Arcee, and Rodimus.

    So, in the TFwiki's page of Prime Acree, the caption is

    And in transformers crap past the radar page in TVTropes, they have this:

    Call me ignorant or delusional, but what exactly is wrong with them?

    That second quote is quite ironic, coming from a guy named 'Dick'.

    Arcee I dunno, but I always thought it could be the spelled out version of R.C. (Remote Control). As for the other:

    There was a thread here a few weeks ago where people were kicking about what Arcee actually meant.

    As for Rodimus, it's just people with dirty minds. Heck, Bumblebee has the word 'bum' in his name. And Metro Titan has the word 'tit'.
    Not to mention Erector, Windbreaker, Ramhorn, etc.

    Arcee sounds like Arsey....basically someone who is in a bad mood, a grumpy bastard....might just be an English slang word though not sure. See here:

    Urban Dictionary: arsey

    Rodimus.....I can only think he is meaning rod? Rodding someone? I dunno.....that's the only thing I can think of when he's talking about passing censors. That's clutching at straws tho so dunno if he's trying to make a joke outta nothing.....a very poor one at that mind you.

    The "Arcee" joke is referencing the fact that "R.C." stands for "race car" which doesn't fit Arcee as she's a motorcycle.

    The Rodimus Prime is just a lol "rod" huh huh huh joke.

    It's for RC as in Remote Control. Like an RC toy.

    And perhaps dude thinks it sounds like 'arse', maybe 'arse see'. I dunno

    I always thought Dirtboss was a bit anal of a name, if you know what I mean.

    I know that, I was saying that the point of the caption is that the name doesn't fit Arcee now as opposed to before when she was a car.
