    Hi Guys!

    I teach fourth grade in Sri Lanka and have to form five Transformers factions for a class activity.

    The problem is - I don't know very much about the Transformers, and even though I've watched a couple of episodes, I don't know enough to name five "cool" factions (stress on the cool..;) ).

    I would really appreciate some help on this. :) 

    I hope this post doesn't break any forum rules, I'm SO sorry if it does!

    Which is the most powerful and competent faction apart from the Decepticons and AutoBots, though?

    What about some of the more popular "teams", as well as factions.

    Dinobots? ***
    Protectobots?
    Stunticons?
    Combaticons?
    Constructicons?
    Airialbots?
    Technobots?
    Monstercons?

    I was thinking Predacons, but someone told me they're incompetent?

    Maximals sounded great to me too. I read somewhere they were only a toy range though?

    I know I'm getting a little finicky, but this is going to be a year-long thing, so... :) 

    Ok, just give me one faction apart from the Decepticons or Autobots or MiniCons that is powerful and competent and I'll take it. :)

    I'd suggest you also forget the mainline names and go with the team/subfaction names:

    Technobots
    Terrorcons
    Monsterbots
    Omnibots
    Ultracons

    Good generic names that sound cool.

    Nope, the Maximals and Predacons were the Decepticons and Autobots, respectively, from the Beast Wars television series and toy line, where the transformers turned into animals instead of vehicles. Both sides were powerful and cunning, and the Predacons also drew their name from one of the most powerful combiner teams from the original transformers series.

    NOTE TO ORIGINAL POSTER: do NOT use this. This is a running joke on this board and does not actually represent any known faction.

    Neutrals?
    Mini-cons?

    In a general sense, there are 4 main factions in the TF fandom. In terms of who was more powerful, the Decepticons/Predacons were more powerful than the Autobots/Maximals. It was always fight of good vs. evil. The Mini-cons were a separate faction that was used during the Armada series. They had specific powers that could be used when they are attached to an Autobot or a Decepticon.

    BTW, welcome to TFW
