    For me, it has to be when we see Silas die white light style. Humans have died in Transformers cartoons before, but they were always hidden by other things on screen. My mouth dropped.

    In the cartoons? Honestly... not a lot. Probably Prowl's death in Animated.

    Comics, on the other hand...

    Primal's death at the end of BW season 1. I KNEW KNEW KNEW that there was no way he was going to die. The good guys always escape at the last second. ESPECIALLY when it's just a kids tv cartoon. Not even a movie. And up to that point in time, I don't think there had ever been a single major death in U.S. cartoon history. I kept scoffing at the dramatic music, and all the yelling and build-up. I was like- please. Just blast the door or something. And then he blew up, and I was like- Nah. He made it out somehow. But then they showed parts of him floating away and I was like - What the Fuuuuu?!

    Dinobot from bw. It made dinobot2 all the more troubling to watch.

    I think as a child what shocked me the most with the original cartoon was seeing an episode featuring Cobra Commander.

    Ratchet beating down Lockdown explicitly for revenge in Thrill of the Hunt in Animated surprised me, it's one of my favourite Transformers moments.

    In comics, the Senator Shockwave reveal in MTMTE caused some serious shit flippage. I mean literally flailing off the sofa shouting "WHAT THE FUCK!?!". Good times.

    I dunno. Blurr getting cubed maybe?

    Don't think anything in TF cartoons has ever outright shocked me.

    Now the comics, on the other hand...

    Where do human protoforms come from? Oh yes, Prime was definitely stunned when he found out....

    If we had to go with just the cartoons in G1 the final unseen fate of Dr Arkeville (think that was his name) I found really cruel and upsetting as a kid even though he probably deserved it

    If we extend to other stuff grindcore138's signature image is just a sample of the some of the wrong that takes place in the comics

    And if we also extend it to the movies, the overtly sexualised and sexist portrayal of women in the movies aimed at a kids demographic is pretty shocking.

    Blurr getting cubed was unexpected, as I was so adament he would survive when everybody started speculating from promos that he may die.
