    About anything Takara comes up with. "Dino Shout". "Tera Shaver". "Autorooper". "X-Gunner". All those stupid Micron names such as "Plier", "Socket", "Dice", "Jack" or "Plug". e-Hobby exclusives such as "Shot Hole" or "Flip Sides". All those countless "Convoys", especially "Lio Convoy".

    I think "Dino Shout" is the worst of them all.

    According to Syd, that was supposed to be a pun, because cranes were originally called "grane" in Japan for whatever reason. So the Buildtron was called "Gren", with a short "e".

    Bad names:

    -Windbreaker (people have already mentioned it, but it's definitely the worst)
    -Sideburn (why not mutton chop?)
    -Thundercracker (sorry, hate to say it... he's my favorite Decepticon jet, but that name is ridiculous)
    -Thrust
    -Ramjet
    -Laserbeak (watch out for his beak! It's got a laser!)
    -Kup (all I can think of is a jockstrap)
    -Rodimus Prime (c'mon, that was the BEST they could do for the new Autobot leader?)
    -Sunstreaker (again, love the character, but the name is silly)
    -Movor (huh?)
    -Skids (ewww)
    -Powerglide (my favorite minibot... what's up with characters I like having substandard names?)
    -Soundblaster (okay, I have a thing against names that end with "-er." They just sound silly.)

    Now as for some of the really GOOD (at least in my opinion) names:

    -Ironhide
    -Starscream
    -Skywarp
    -Dirge
    -Tracks
    -Brawn
    -Prowl
    -Shockwave
    -Skyfire
    -Warpath
    -Omega Supreme (even though Omega is the last letter of the Greek alphabet, and thus might seem like a contradiction when paired with "Supreme".... to me it's more like he is the last, but most powerful, line of defense)

    As for Sky Garry, I always thought it was a pun(?) on "Sky Carry". Anyway, my all time favorite is Landfill. Imagine being named after a garbage dump?

    I can forgive the Takara names. After all, English isn't their first language over there. Hasbro can't make that excuse though.

    Thundercracker is pretty bad. In the '80's, it was cool, but nowadays, I hear it, and I think of a loudmouthed whiteboy.
