What was the saddest or the most shocking Transformers death in TF lore? In your opinion of course. HEAVY SPOILERS AHEAD IF YOU ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH THE FOLLOWING CONTINUITIES: Generation 1 Generation 2 (although who cares?) Robots In Disguise Headmasters Go-bots (Unfortunately) Victory Masterforce Armada Energon (why?) Cybertron Rescue Bots Animated With that out of the way. In my opinion the saddest death for me is the death of Starscream in Armada. He had a great arc, and an amazing character development the whole run of the show. I say this death because it was the first that came to mind, and it was the one I first remember watching. Besides Optimus of course, but that's a different story. The most shocking death for me is the death of S..... wait thats a spoiler for MTMTE whoops. So i have to go with another option. I guess Prowl from Animated. His arc was closing and I expected his story to go on, but I guess it's fitting in the end that he died.
