    TF shows, filled with of course Transformers but most of them include humans which most of the time, fans hate and on occasions, fans like. So, who in your opinion, were tolerable humans in any TF show if there are any.

    Animated had the most tolerable humans.

    Same goes for Beast Wars, but mainly because the humanoids there didn't talk.

    Animated's humans were OK. Fanzone kinda irritated me but they're swell.

    Good gravy, every single thread you make, we JUST had. We just had this thread a couple weeks ago or so. Take the advice of the people telling you to use the search function.

    I opened this thread to read the new responses since last time, then -- WTF -- it's a new thread.

    Masterforce is pretty much all humans on both sides, and they do fairly well for themselves.

    Ginrai, The Headmaster Juniors, Jack Darby, and I guess Raf was okay.

    Russel and Denny Clay are both enjoyable, likable characters. They're there when needed and don't hang around unnecessarily.

    I also liked the Prime kids. Jack was never that interesting, but he was never that insufferable either, and he did prove himself useful. I also liked his dynamic with Arcee. Miko started off annoying, but she really improved with character development. Raf has my favorite Transformer/human dynamic so far (I like how his friendship with Bumblebee goes beyond words), and his hacking skills made him useful and a valuable member of the team.
    June Darby is one of the few examples of a good parent character in Transformers. She's concerned for her son and his friends as they're caught in the middle of a war, but she accepts that she can't run his life for him, and that the Autobots will do what they can to protect humanity.
    Fowler is my favorite human in any Transformers series. He's funny, but he's useful, and he has a real purpose as a government liaison for the Autobots.

    She wasn't entirely human, but Sari Sumdac from Animated was a fantastic character. She behaved like a real kid, she had a great dynamic with all of the Autobots, and her reaction to discovering that she came from a Cybertronian protoform was handled well.

    I also like Marissa Faireborn in the IDW comics and her friendship with Thundercracker.

    I'd give a mention to Jan Minakase, as well. Intelligent and level-headed.

    On one occasion when the Destrons were sending a bomb through a docking tube to Galaxy Shuttle, the Micromaster Rescue Patrol were panicking. Meanwhile Jan was calmly using Galaxy Shuttle's manipulator arms and a length of cable to tie off the tube! :D  And then there's the mecha he built (with help) which allowed him to delay a Destron attack on his school long enough for help to arrive - a bit of a Marty Stu, but he didn't actually save the day, just bought a little time. And the same mecha proved useful in Victory's finale as well.

    He might not be the best TF human character ever, but he's certainly one of the better ones from G1.

    And of course Sari Sumdac and Jack Darby.

    Really any of the humans in TF Prime were allright, IMO. Sure Miko could get a little annoying but not in an unbearable way. Fowler was pretty much my favorite because he was no nonsense, a cool customer, prove useful to the Autobots, and he can be genuinely funny a times. Also being voiced by Ernie Hudson was a plus.

    Also have to give props to Silas too. Most other human "villains" that I can remember in the G1 TV shows, were just there and pretty much were just a sidekick to a bigger Decepticon plot. Silas and MECH from the start was a pretty big threat to the Autobots without much Decepticon help in the beginning. Then when they did get Decepticon help, it was the Con helping from the sideline with MECH remaining in the driver seat in the overall plot.

    But with all that said, RID 2015 has introduced what is now my favorite all time human character in all the TF mythos: Brother Gunter. :D  (I won't go into details since not everyone might have seen the episode).

    Raf was quite helpful, especially given the secret war nature of the show. He still remains my favorite human companion.

    Sari and Isaac Sumdac pretty helpful too. Sari gave the Animated Autobots pretty much all the support they received for the series, and Megatron would have been a paperweight for the remainder of the series were it not for Isaac. Okay maybe that last one would have been better for all concerned, but you didn't specify who they helped.

    Sparkplug was also a great assist to the G1 Autobots, as well as Chip and Spike.

    Chip Chase is the greatest human companion and I will punch anyone who says otherwise.

    I'd say the humans in Rescue bots. They were all well written and interesting.

    Sparkplug was not that bad and was useful since he always helped with the repairs and Chip Chase was useful with his knowledge. Dr. Arkeville was useful, depending for whom you're asking (good guys or bad guys? Or story?)
    It's mostly like Silas except I hate Silas so he is not tolerable.
    All the humans in Prime were tolerable and Fowler was useful.
    Sari (if human) and her father were useful and likeable.
    Ginrai was cool and did lots of things and I kind of liked the young Decepticon juniors and their leaders Mega and Giga.
    I didn't hate the humans in Cybertron (kids, scientist and gov. agent) I don't remember what they did maybe the scientist and gov. agent did something useful but probably the kids did more.
    Somehow I didn't hate the Armada kids but as to be useful...
    Kicker was useful but as to be tolerable...

    Yes I like brother Gunter!
