    Which of the Autobots/Decepticons are the most skilled fighters?

    Obviously Optimus Prime and Megatron are at the top, who else stands above the rest?

    From the live movies, comic books, animated series/movies, anything.

    Shouldn't this be in General Discussion?

    I don't see why it can't be discussed here because I am also talking about the live action movies as well.

    You must be new here.

    You can't include the rest of the TF franchise as it would be too broad and that is General Discussion material.

    Limit only to the Movie franchise as this is the Movie Discussion forum.

    Unfortunately, general discussion is no where near as high in traffic as the movie board. That is why. More discussion is made here.

    You know, we could try to make it more pertinent to the movie forum by simply discussing it from a movie standpoint. That way, the thread can stay where it is and the OP gets a fraction of the thread's intended purpose. No need to move or close.

    Movie Cons: Blackout, as he took out a horde of humans by himself.
    Movie Bots: Bumblebee, as he's one of the posterchildren of the franchise.

    Autobots: I'd say the top five past Prime would be:

    1. Ironhide
    2. Bumblebee
    3. Sideswipe
    4. Dino
    5. Ratchet

    Decepticons: It's close, but I'd say

    1. Starscream
    2. Blackout
    3. Demolishor
    4. Brawl
    5. Soundwave

    Movieverse bots : All of them are GREAT fighters, save Que and the Twins. Sentinel, Optimus and Bee are the standouts.
    Movieverse Cons - Noone. Megatron and Starscream were good in the first one... after that neither could fight anymore.Seriously, 3 movies in, the Decepticons (not including Sentinel) managed to kill Jazz, and ALLEGEDLY kill one of the Arcees. Optimus gets more kills in two minutes than the Cons get in years, so yeah... none of the movieverse Cons are skilled fighters.

    Movie 'Cons.

    Mano-a-mano: I would say Megatron on close-quarter combat, Optimus barely survived the fight on the first movie, and he DID kick the crap out of Sentinel in the last movie.

    Firepower: Brawl, who took all of the human forces and 2/3 of the Autobot in the first movie by himself, and took half-an-hour of sheer gunfire to die. Dude was badass.

    Other notable mentions: Shockwave [for holding off THE WRECKERS and knocking the shit out of Optimus with one hit of his gun], Blackout [for destroying the Qatar Base] and Barricade for surviving.

    Movie 'Bots:

    Mano-a-mano: Sentinel Prime, who promptly smacked down Optimus in Chicago and Washington, Optimus. Prime. the guy who destroys Decepticons for his breakfest, that guy took a beating from Spock Prime and his evil goatee, not even all of the Autobots combined could match him in a close-quarter combat.
    This man is a badass.

    Firepower: Tie between Ironhide and Optimus, both have a ridiculous skill with guns and know how to make quite some damage with their weapons, I say they're equal on firepower, but Ironhide has far more skill with manipulating his weapons, so he takes the cake.

    Honorable Mentions: Jetfire [for killing two named Decepticons with one-hit-kills, a feat no other 'Bot ever managed, not even Optimus], Sideswipe [swords and wheels of awesomeness], and Ratchet [taking out Brawl's arm is something that must be taken into consideration].

    You forgot about WheeljaQ and Jetfire.

    They captured 5 Autobots with ease, and brutally executed Que. Also, I'd say that Megatron and Starscream are still good fighters, both were caught off guard when they died in DotM.

    For Bots, obviously Optomus, Bumblebee, Ironhide, Sideswipe, Mirage, and the Wreckers.

    For Cons, obviously Starscream, Barricade, Brawl, Soundwave, Shockwave, Mixmaster, and The Dreads.

    cons-starscream, ravage, bonecrusher, sentinal prime, dreads(when you can keep up with a ferrari on a highway on feet, you probably have enough endurance to fight.)
