    I don't see why they'd change at all. I don't think faction has much to do with appearance or names. In season three Octane, while not turning good, did turn away from the 'Cons and chummed around with Sandstorm. He was still Octane, and looked like...Octane.

    They'd probably have less purple and green, and more red and blue.

    They'd be shattered glass versions of themselves basically.

    Well, Scorponok turned when he fought alongside Prime to save Cybertron from Unicron in the original Marvel comics. Still looked the same.

    I think he would look the same, perhaps grey and orange instead of purple and green.

    Just a guess.

    When Dinobot switched sides he said "maximize" instead of "terrorize" to change into robot mode and that was about it, as I recall.

    They probably act different in some ways while keeping some traits. For example BW Inferno would probably called Optimus Primal his "Queen" instead. Or Animated Lugnut would probably had bow down every time Prime showed up.

    I know there are typical faction colors, like red for Autobots and purple for Decepticons. But I don't think a character is going to change decos for switching sides. Just slap on a different faction symbol like Skyfire and Ani. Wreck-Gar.

    If the bad guys do go good, I doubt they'll change their names and their appearances, much less exchange the Decepticon insignia for the Autobot one.

    None of the guys who have switched factions have ever changed identities. Only in the very rare occasions when they've been rebuilt / reborn as a new character following the faction change do they take on a new identity.

    See Demolishor, Cyclonus and Tidal Wave in Energon. They're all the same personalities and stuff as in Armada, arguably the colour changes were more for the sake of selling new toys than them actually adapting to working with the other side, since all three still wore their badges and still considered themselves Decepticons.
    See also Scourge, Mudflap and Dirt Boss of Cybertron amongst others, all of them eventually ended up on the Autobot side (Mudflap started as one and did a stint with the Decepticons before rejoining). None of those three changed identities at all between their faction switches.

    Come to think, there's also tons of examples in the old Marvel comics. And not to mention Revenge of the Fallen Wheelie and Jetfire's faction switches.

    It's pretty well supported in the fiction that a character at the very least does not change their name or appearance when they swap sides. Personality, well, let's face it, Lugnut or BW Inferno are unlikely to ever move away from their leader worship. No character that dedicated to their faction would ever swap sides unless their leader did too.

    The moral of the story, is sometimes later in life tattoos are not as cool as they once were. Those sporting Decepticon decals no longer seem so bad-ass now that you're siding with the good guys.

    as everyone has said I don't think they would change their names, maybe their faction symbols, and a little less tyranical

    In BW dinobot kept everyone on their toes because they weren't sure how much they coud trust him. Makes for better stories IMO nothing more... wait i'm getting old was it him or blackarchnia that kept flip-flopping?
