    Transformers have developed many names over the years. WHile many are reused, others are more original and rarely used. He is a thread to discuss your favourite tf names. My list would be

    1. Excellion
    2. Tidal Wave
    3. Onslaught
    4. Ruination
    5. Sky-Byte
    6. Bludgeon
    7. Galvatron
    8. Anything ending with "Maximus"
    9. Beast Box
    10. Lockdown
    Edit: Replaced Overlord, Devastator and Skywarp with Grand Slam, Lockdown and Bludgeon

    Anyway, I'd go with:

    1.Straxus
    2.Wreck-Gar
    3.Sky-Byte
    4.Bruticus
    5.Unicron
    6.Grimlock
    7.Flatline
    8.Overlord
    9.
    10.

    Hm...I can't think of a #9 or #10. There's a lot of cool names to choose from that I'm not thinking of at the moment...

    EDIT: Banzai-Tron and Sky-Lynx

    I always liked the names that made me want to look shit up- "Dirge", "Blitzwing", "Brawn", "Vortex"

    Then there were just badass noun names- "Onslaught", "Dead End", "Devastator"

    And then the names where they just put two words together to basically spell the function of character out, and they STILL sounded bad ass "Mixmaster", Motormaster", "Ramjet", "Wildrider"

    And finally, how can you forget the classics- MEGATRON, SOUNDWAVE, RAVAGE, SHOCKWAVE.

    Never saw a goddamn Pikachu in Transformers. A Kremzeek maybe...
