    I was pondering what a G1 version of Raiden and his components would have been called in the G1 Cartoon. I'm figuring Raiden would be called Rail Racer, if only for the reverse Homage to Rail Racer RiD. But that still leaves the Trainbots proper to be named. Road Spike, Rapid Run and Midnight Express would be probable, But then the question still remains, who gets what, and what of the other three.

    Shōki- Devil-Queller
    Getsuei- Moonshadow (That might work)
    Kaen-Blaze
    Seizan- Blue Mountain
    Suiken- Plains or Wasteland
    Yukikaze- Snowy Breeze

    (Names now have Translations to their right)

    Are there translations for the other names?

    Actually wasn't meant as a translation there for Shoki. I simply guessed Rapid Run as he's been the leader to "Rail Racer" in all other cases, and Shoki's gimmick is super speed, so...

    Anyway, you make a great point, I'm going to get the translations of the names posted there to the side.

    Raiden has to be Rail Racer.
