    Personally, the kids from the Armada series rank as the most illogical, non-sensical characters of all time. They do pretty much nothing from what I remember, except get in the way, and act stupid with their Mini-con friends.


    Kicker was also really an aweful aweful character. I mean, just his name alone is terrible enough.

    Energon Ironhide - The legacy of Ironhide was forever destroyed with this washed out surfer sounding Autobot. I mean, did he have to be named Ironhide?

    Hotshot was was just incredibly lame. His attempts at being the "Cool bot" = Epic Fail.

    Armada/Energon Unicron - Grunt Grunt, i'm a Moleman?


    What do you think are the worst TF characters?

    Arcee after the movie really bugged me for some reason. Oh right she became a jerk and started talking down to grimlock.

    At least when he serves rodimus prime lemonade its because: A: Rodimus is the autobot leader and B: He gets a tip.

    Grimlocks a working bot.

    Human or Transformer?

    Human: Kicker, followed by the Cybertron Kids and Sari

    Transformer: Energon Ironhide. Clumsy, tried to be "cool", totally useless, a fricken dumb****, and....yeah he's useless.

    Worst combined mode!

    Transformer and Human picks

    Human-Sari. Most annoying little brat ever. I just want her to shut up and her voice grates on my nerves.

    Transformer-Wheelie. Yeah you can pick a lot of annoying AEC characters but Wheelie was the first annoying Transformer for me. I will buy a Legends Wheelie when released but only to show him getting killed by everyone else when I display him.

    My top ten:

    1. All the Kissplayer partners. Pedophilia, get the hell out of my fandom.
    2. Kicker - he needs to be taken out back and shot.
    3. Primacron - ruined the entire Unicron experience with a Unicron origin that screamed "WTF".
    4. The kids from Armada - walking obstacles made of pure annoyance.
    5. Wheelie (Sunbow and Japanese G1 cartoons) - served no real purpose. Also, for the love of God... stop that high-pitched rhyming already.
    6. Nightscream (Beast Machines) - immature, petulant, mopey stumblebum.
    7. Sky Lynx - supercilious prat. Reminds me too much of some colleagues I love to hate.
    8. Bumblebee (Animated) - obnoxious little runt. I've about had it with his insubordination and arrogance.
    9. Arcee (Sunbow and Japanese G1 cartoons) - see Wheelie, but take away the bit about rhyming.
    10. Shockwave (Sunbow G1 cartoon) - useless gimp; a pale shadow of his comics incarnation.

    Keep in mind that he had an awesome voice and character model.
    Oh, I also add Grimlock to my list.

    "Me Grimlock BADASS!" Is one of the most cringworthy lines of all time, because it is written by a nerd, for nerds. Which is the least, >ahem<, 'naughty buttocks' thing ever.

    No shame in being a nerd though, ;)

    That's why he's last on the list. :D 

    Honestly, though, the voice I heard when I saw G1 Shockwave on television was not the same as the voice in my head when I read the Marvel G1 comics (my first exposure to TF fiction). It was a bit of a let-down. But Corey Burton is awesome.

    Suprised Blurr hasnt come up yet. He's like the annoying guy at a party but no one will tell him to leave cos they all think each other likes him.

    During the animated movie when the Deceptions attack Autobot city, Blurr Asks Magnus...

    "What about me Magnus, aha aha, what about me?"

    Magnus replies...

    "Blurr you can help me alert the others."

    But the tone of his voice and the look on his face you can tell Ultra Magnus is just thinking...

    "Sweet fucking christ Blurr, I dont care, just go stand in the corner!"

    You don't like Dead End? :p 

    But they do like Blurr. He may be somewhat hyperactive, but most of them seem to consider him a really loyal friend.

    It's tricky, because my answer would probably be at least one of the characters from the AEC universe, but because those characters (and my complete inability to connect with any of the ones I saw) are a good deal of the reason I barely watched the 'toons, I don't really know them well enough to pick one, and there wasn't enough fiction otherwise to get to know them.

    Yeah, quite a few G1 'toon incarnations I don't like. Obviously the voices of Warpath, Seaspray and Wheelie etc, got on my nerves, but I actually like the idea of them as characters outside the 'toon.

    From what I have seen of AEC, I think Energon Ironhide is the guy I really want to slap.

    Totally agree.

    And they'd totally have awkward conversations later...

    Your post count is now at 17, and pretty much all you've done since joining up is tell us about things you don't like in Transformers.

    How about something you do? (Though by your screen name, I expect you to be thoroughly GEEWUN)

    Wheelie needs an incarnation to stop people from hating him.

    I can't say I hate anyone from AEC, because I didn't even bother watching it. Animated Bumblebee for me. Total opposite of his G1 self - self-conscious, humble and brave. The whole teen, rebellious character is so overdone.

    Let's see if I can't name all the characters that I think are the worst:

    G1 -- Warpath, Seaspray, Powerglide, Cosmos, Gears, Sky Lynk
    Armada -- Sideways, Thrust, Cyclonus, Demolishor, the Mini-Cons, and the kids (except for Alexis, whom I can tolerate)
    Cybertron -- Ransack, Crumplezone, Bud
    Animated -- All the human villains, especially Professor Princess (god is she horrible!)

    Cosmos?

    Cosmos?!?1

    He was awesome!
    Sure he had an accent that made no sense...

    And an alternate mode that didn't make sense...

    And his robot mode was kinda goofy...


    But...



    ...ummm....





    PEOPLE WORSHIPED HIM AS A GOD ONCE!

    Yes! Nice save by me!
