    Do the amount of wheels an Autobot has dictate strength? It seems like it. Optimus has more wheels than any other Autobot, and he's the strongest. Whereas Arcee, who has only two wheels is the smallest, although she's not that weak.

    I remember at one point in season 1, Ratchet saying that Arcee was 'tough, for a two wheeler.' (Not an exact quote.)

    Does anybody know why less wheels = less strength??

    I wouldn't think so. I think Ratchet was more refering to her size. All the Autobots (Prime and Arcee excluded) have 4 wheels, and Ratchet is certainly no warrior.


    If it wheels ever do equal strength, Megatrons gonna be pissed.

    It's a joke. Don't take things so seriously.

    Less form- less wheels, less Energon inside.
    Some of, saw the clip - when big Prime rammed little motorcycle, Arcee got hurt, because the details she consists of are smaller and, in some way, thiner.

    Wheels aren't the reason of strenght, they are just indicative because they're directly related to SIZE.

    Bikes are tiny, they only need two, meanwhile big trucks need 8. Ratchet's comment was the same thing as "she's strong for somebody 1/3 our size"

    This. Besides, if wheels were the indication of strength, then Megatron, Soundwave, Airachnid and Insecticons couldn't fight for crap XD

    Wheels for wheel-owners...And the size of the feet for the rest.

    Strength is more so related to size than amount of wheels. A guy's alt-mode could be a giant, single-wheeled vehicle like General Grievous has, and he would be enormous and powerful in robot mode.

    It's just that Earth vehicles generally have less wheels if they are smaller, and more if they are bigger.

    It's a race. And from what we heard from Starscream in Crossfire, he's racist.

    But jokes aside, what shroobmaster said.

    Autobot babies are born as unicycles.

    Not a race, more of a "preference". Starscream thinks less of Knockout for his preference to wheeled vehicles.

    In that case, Megatron should be the weakest character on the show.
