    Megatron - I love him but first off his Alt. mode fails, second his plans and ultimate weapons fails, third he retreat to much when he could just kill every single autobot in his way.
    Starscream - I love him but he fails when it comes to becoming leader and the couple of minutes he was leader, he was killed.
    Shockwave - He extremely smart but sucks at shooting... Waste of a Alt. Mode I would say.
    Reflector - He is barely shown after the first episodes... And he is a camera.
    Shrapnel - The repeating of his voice annoys alot of people... He must have a glitch in his head.
    Kickback - The two other Insecticon have amazing powers and he can just kick stuff really hard....
    Buzzsaw - Wanna-be Laserbeak.
    Galvatron - I do like him but at moments he can be abit too crazy.
    Cyclonus - Teachers pet....
    Trypticon - Holy mother of Jebus, he is dumber then Homer Simpson/Peter Griffin/Randy Marsh Combine!
    Octane - He is a fail spy and even after that episode, he is back on the Decepticons never seen working with another Autobot.
    Ratbat - Wanna be Laserbeak and Buzzsaw.

    Megatron. If he were head coach of a football team, he'd be zero for 1,391,291,582,291

    Absolutely useless failure of a leader.

    Shockwave. Guarding the space bridge for centuries and having everyone and especially every Autobot coming through and him being to slow for noticing them and then wondering what was going on! :lol

    It's hard to pick one. When you really think about it, most of the Decepticons were quite disappointing, at least in the cartoon anyway.

    I suppose it was a kids cartoon designed to sell toys so you can't really have the bad guys winning all the time, but the knock-on effect of that was that they all came across as slightly pathetic and perpetual losers.

    It wasn't until the '86 Movie that we really saw Megatron and Co. kick some ass and even THAT resulted in Megatron 'dying' but not really. At least the first thing he did after being resurrected was destroy Starscream.

    Overall, if you include a range of continuities, Galvatron was probably the most badass Decepticon (he ordered Magnus hung drawn and quartered for crying out loud!). He was certainly a crazy evil bastard in the comics.

    As for most disappointing... most of them that came before him IMO.

    I voted for Shockwave, in the G1 cartoon he couldn't hit the broad side of barn if he wanted to. Actually, that was kind of funny. :D

    Assuming we're talking G1 cartoon here, I'm voting for Starscream. Scheming underling sounds like a great character, but Starscream just fails so badly at it. For the love of fuck, you don't imply that you want to take over the Decepticons right in front of Megatron. Not to mention he was a total coward and the voice wasn't intimidating in the least.

    Runner-up goes to Megatron...if you know Starscream plans to overthrow you, why the fuck would you hand yourself over to him in gun mode? Granted, Starscream wasn't smart enough to figure this out, but still.

    Trypticon. How many times was he sent to destroy Metroplex and ended up in the sea?

    I would like to say all since it seems like they always lose. They have no morals, unlike the Autobots, more powerful alt modes, and even once full control on Cybertron and still lose.

    If I had to pick only one: Galvatron

    In G1 he was just a crazy robot with an arm gun. Blasting his own troops even. He could had been a better leader if he wasnt nuts most of the time.

    Galvatron. For an upgraded and highly-evolved form of Megatron, he didn't do much in season 3. He just yelled a lot and his voice kept changing.
