You know, I feel some bots get more hate than they deserve. Here's the three that i see get hated on a lot. 1. G1 Rodimus Prime, You could say he killed Optimus Prime unitentionally but I really liked Rodimus, He started the archetype of "Turbo Revving Young Punk" which continues today. I know had he not intervened in Optimus Prime and Megatron final fight, Prime would have lived and I can see why you would hate him, but throughtout the movie he really seemed confident and heroic in many parts hell he saves Kup's life and repairs him and got to unlock the power of the Matrix and blow Unicron up sky high. In Season 3 he went Downhill and got whiny and some parts but I liked the fact he wasn't perfect and knew he will never replace Optimus Prime, I just wished he hadn't everytime Prime came back he forced the Matrix back to him. 2. Cybertron Hotshot, I grew up with the Unicron Trilogy and Hotshot was the kid appeal charecter of the time, He was okay in Armada and Energon but didn't do it for me then, Then came along the Cybertron series and he was awesome. He was Cooler, faster and for some reason i thought he acted more mature than the Energon version espicially after the Cybertron Defense upgrade, hell he became Leader of Velocitron and the Cybertron toy has a special place in my heart due to his toy being the first i got from the line, in a way he was like improved version of G1 Rodimus also I'd take Hotshot over Bumblebee anyday. 3. Animated Ultra Magnus, I know Magnus wasn't be a warm cuddly charecter but i thought he was awesome. I like how he's a no-nosense charecter who makes tough descions and doesn't care if people agree with him or not. People seem to hate him because of the fact he favors Sentinel Prime over Optimus Prime, my theory is that Magnus knew Optimus was right and had the Leadership potiential but wanted him to earn his way into becoming the Autobot Leader he destined to be, I really dig the Magnus Hammer and his Robert Stack esque voice too, I think Ultra Magnus was suppossed to represent the old ways of Cybertron while a new revolution began, shame he had to die but if it was anyone who killed him i'm glad it was my favourite charecter in the show, Shockwave. Agree with me or not, I still really like these charecters for what they are and now i have question who do you like that gets more hate than they deserves and why do you like them?
