    Which Transformers character do you think is the craziest? I came up with a list* in the poll, but I'm sure there are plenty I'm not aware of. Choose "other" and sound off if this is the case!

    *I expect people's definition of "insane" will be highly subjective
    **I've limited my own list to primarily villains because a lot of the "crazy" heroes are part of legitimate and sensitive stories about mental health. Your results may vary. Also, Guzzle ripped someone in half and drank them. I believe that qualifies him for the list.

    You needed a "All of the Above" :D 

    Hopefully folks will take the title 'tongue in cheek' and not be offended... by crazy fictional characters.

    Can we rename the other option whirl?

    To not offend let's say who is the most logically challenged.

    I don't remember Sideways being crazy in Armada or Cybertron. From what continuity do you mean?

    Thus my disclaimer. Hopefully the choices in the pool get across what I'm going for.

    BW Inferno. He actually believes he works for an ant colony. While others on that list might be pyschopathic, none of them are delusional to the point they think they are actually ants.

    Season 3 Galvatron. He was more of a danger to his own troops than he was to the Autobots.

    IDW Whirl and BW Inferno should be at the top of that list

    Probably IDW Thunderwing, since all the other candidates are still capable of freedom of thought and speech.

    This is a tough call. Sunbow Galvatron had a mental illness. I'm not sure he could actually function on his own and only really survived cause he had a team of people looking after him. IDW Whirl is simply amoral with the motivation to remain an Autobot so that he could legally take out his anger/frustration on suitable targets.

    So I guess Galvatron had a serious mental illness that includes mood swings, bizarre thoughts and maybe some paranoia. Whirl just has serious anger issues that he copes through in an amoral fashion. He does have the capacity to understand he needs to stay within the boundaries of the law. Galvatron might have a tenuous hold on reality and has bizarre beliefs that put his own subordinates in danger of getting hurt by him. IDW Fortress Maximus has PTSD. IDW Skids also had PTSD. IDW Swerve and Rodimus have some narcissistic qualities. IDW Ultra Magnus has some OCD qualities. IDW Red Alert has deep seated paranoia and anxiety. Anyone else need a diagnosis?

    I know he doesn't really qualify for this poll but if you could pysch-evaluate Armada Cyclonus I think it'd be funny.

    I think Galvatrons sanity improved after Webworld so I'm going with Inferno. He is completely delusional, seems immune to/enjoys pain and is a total pyromaniac. And just look at his face, complete whacko!

    And this is intended as a compliment. How about fellow board member Tikgnat?

    Some good, obvious choices on this list and I went for Galvatron of those on it (an episode of the original Cartoon dedicated to your treatment must put you pretty high up the dangerously gone scale) but quite a few Cons (Bombshell, Weirdwolf etc ) and even some Bots from G1 where not all there in the head and one that stands out in current media would be IDW Overlord - torture, revenge and yet more torture being his prime reasons for bothering to exist.

    So I'd say him.
