Give me names of transformers you think had awful characters.
Sari, Energon Ironhide, Kicker, Rattrap, Nightscream, Bottanica, and I'd have to say Ani. Spongebee, and Bulktrick.
He was painful to the ears.
Wheelie, Carlos, Rad, Alexis, Kicker, Energon Ironhide, Armada Hotshot, ect.
Mechafire's right, Wheelie was bloody awful. I find G1 Rodimus Prime to be rather irritating, too. Whiny little bitch is one of the most politically powerful and influential beings in known space and he moans and second guesses. He did not seem to rise to the challenge particularly well. Just my opinions, of course.
my dogs name is wrigley. with my moms accent and poor english, she calls him wheelie....funny shit.
To be fair, this was more due to the fact that they had random writers every episode, than the character. His character bio, comic book version, and every other version, is much better.
As for bad characters overall, I'd say Megatron. You do not keep the moron who keeps trying to kill you around. Logically, every decepticon should've been gunning for him, since Megs seemed to tolerate treason so well.
Maybe I would have liked her better under different circumstances, but she was an unlikable bitch for most of her first appearance, and first impressions mean alot. Not to mention that her inclusion just shat all over the theme they were going with for the clones, and all because someone thought "lol, fandom reference" was a good idea. Also, I don't like the implications behind all the competance, wits and skill going to the girl while all the guys became bumbling screw-ups.
Maybe if they confirm that she really was a part of Starscream's personality, and if Animated continued in comic book form to give me a reason to like her, I'll change my opinion (I hated the Constructicons at first, but Scrapper won me over with Human Error part 2), but until then, let's hope that future of female Seekers is remanded to DeviantArt, where it belongs.
BW: None really
Armada: The five kids, Hot Shot, Cyclonus, Thrust, and Sideswipe
Energon-Kicker and Iron hide, but r est of the majority can also qualify
Cybertron-Clocker, Undermine, Brimstone
Movie-Everybody except Sam, Optimus, and Bumblebee
Animated- Professor Sumdac, Professor Princess, Nanosec, Dirt Boss.
That's all I can think of
I think theirs a difference between a badly written character and a poor quality character
case and point wheelie. In the G1 cartoon he was poorly written but in his Spotlight comic I think they gave us a positive way to look at him while still being the wheelie we know.
But I will say the Armada kids were just annoying even their concept just makes me facepalm. Also the whole Kicker Ironhide thing in energon actively put me off watching the show
Wheelie, any human child associated with the autobots, G1 Grimlock during season 3(Grimlock not comic relief, Grimlock king!).
Any stereotypical character (Hot headed youngin's, Gentle giants, Baddie turned good)
So, G1 Sky/Jetfire, BW Dinobot, Armada Starscream are all lame characters in your opinion.
I know Armada Starscream was, IMHO.
eh i was about to jump in with another wheelie comment, but really it's a bit of a given right?
His spotlight comic was decent tho, right?
G1-Wheelie (not counting Spotlight)
BM-I actually never saw this show
RiD-all characters were pretty cool
Energon/Cybertron-didn't really see enough to have a good opinion
Animated-Blitzwing and Sari were the worst,but they all seemed pretty lame.
Wheelie, Rodimus Prime, Energon Ironhide, Armada Kids, Cybertron Thundercracker (hated the voice, I didn't need Larry the Cable Guy in Transformers)
Separate names with a comma.
