I've noticed alot of times, Arcee has insulted Bulkhead. What's her problem with him?
They're friends. Family. When they "insult" each other, they're most likely just kidding around.
Bulkhead is somewhat a dumb brute [somewhat, he is pretty smart, but he usually has his moments of stupidity when it comes to dealing with people], Arcee is a Deadpan Snarker.
Snarkers snark against anyone, Bulkhead just gives here an opening due his occasional stupidity.
Watch TFP with your "cc" on...it will have her statements with "says sacastically" within the cc.
They're buds, no worries there.
she's just an ass.
She wants to jump his bones.
Deep down, I bet she admires the times Bulkhead has stepped up to the plate - saving them all from Scraplets, beating Starscream and the Energon Harvester - but she won't admit it. She admires what Bulkhead's done because, well, he's a big lug who usually doesn't have it in him. And also likely because as far as efforts go, Bulkhead is the one congratulated most often, while Arcee's record has already proven she's well and capable of good deeds. So it might boil down to jealousy as well.
Man, you really like Bulkhead, don't you?
'Cuz she's an unlikable bitch? :/
It comes off less like kidding around and more like she hates everyone there.
Well, Bulkhead is pretty fat.
Seriously though, has she even made fun of him since Con Job?
She was just poking fun at Bulky with that comment about the size of his backside. But as she was saying to Optimus in the Arctic, she does see Bulkhead as clumsy and prone to causing damage (which is probably justified).
She's having fun with him - I see them as having a brother/sister type relationship.
She hates Bulkhead and plans to murder him when nobody is looking.
She's just a very sarcastic bot. I'm the same way in real life.
Except people actually like me.
I'm like this too, Deadpan Snarking my way on life....
People hate me, though.
So I'm less of Arcee and more of a Knockout, I guess.
They said it, not me.
Arcee seems like the kind of person who tries to distance themselves from others, like Batman or even Optimus Prime. Instead of bottling up her emotions, however, she acts like kind of a jerk. You can tell she loves Jack, Bee, Bulkhead and all her friends, but she sure doesn't want to show it. She's lost too many people close to her, and even though she accepted Jack as more than a liability in Predatory, she's not completely over it.
I see it as a Rattrap/Dinobot type of deal. She might say some stuff about him, but inside she probably has respect for him.
Except Rattrap and Dinobot's banter was born from genuine hatred for one another early on. Like, would have gladly killed eachother given the chance.
As someone who doesn't have the thickest skin, himself, even I have to say you're over exaggerating.
Arcee surely has an attitude, but it's never come across to me as mean spirited. Even in the scene in Scrapheap when she was suspecting Bulkhead probably broke something, her tone seemed to quickly turn more into that of a fond memory. Probably to keep her mind off the fact she was freezing to death.
Also, in Con Job, when Arcee made a crack right to Bulky's face, he chuckled. So it's obviously not meant to be hateful. Arcee just has a chip on her shoulder.
