Who is your favorite villain ever, all series combined?

Postby -Kanrabat- » Sun Dec 19, 2010 6:15 pm

Motto: "I will be your blade. I will be your shield."
Weapon: Armor Axe
:CON: STARSCREAM :CON:
Starscream is my number one choice. He's sly, full of himself, very intelligent, and he usually get things going his way. His robot mode is very cool so is his jet/spaceship mode.

It take a lots of guts to say blatantly to Megatron "Watch your back. The moment you screw up, I WILL be the Decepticons leader."
He's also VERY difficult to get rid of.
G1 Starscream is funny and entertaining. Too bad when he finally got rid of Megatron, his rule was very short lived.
My face when Galvatron disintegrated Starscream: :(
My face when Starscream came back as a Ghost: :shock:
My face when Starscream came back to life: :APPLAUSE:

I'm currently downloading Armada and Energon so I have yet to see how is Starscream in there.

In Galaxy Force (Cybertron) Starscream have (at least in the Japanese version) a bad-ass voice. He's way more subtle in this series. And in this one, not only he manage to be Supreme Leader, he also become some kind of GOD. It took everything to take him down! :BOWDOWN:

In Prime, he Killed Cliffjumper.

In Animated, he's a major torn in Megatron's side. Even creating clones and becoming immortal!

The only sad thing is the very VERY small role in the Bay's movies. In the first movie, they got his voice very wrong, but it was only a small line. In the second, it was right, but his role was minimal. Please, more Starscream in the third movie? Pretty please? :PRAY:

Although Screamer can try to take over, Megatron puts him in his place.

I'm partial to Starscream. It's always fun to watch him scheme his way to the top.

Well, I'm not sure if he really counts but I like G1 Bruticus.
But for actual villainy, I think BW Megatron is one of the best, he's always been my favorite.

Going to have go go with Beast-Megs on this, he's equal parts evil, threatening, incompetent and funny. Just the right balance.

Screamer's cool too though.

Motto: "I Stand Alone"
Weapon: Twin Photon Blasters
I must say Shockwave from the G1 comics. Ruthless, calculating, and unbeatable. He beat the crap out of all the Dinobots at once, pretty much bitch slapped Megatron (though Megs wasn't at full health), then tricked Megatron into nearly blowing himself up with the space bridge after he caused Megs to snap, then he survived a fall from outer space through Earth's atmosphere, followed by his return and 2-issue brawl with Scorponok, which ended in a tie, then he schemed with Starscream to steal the Ark as the rest of the Transformers fought Unicron, and was finally(?) taken out by both Megatron and Galvatron, though his death wasn't shown, so it cannot be definite. (I never read the UK comics, so I don't know if this was addressed) Galvatron was crazy, and Megatron just got out of the Nucleon chamber, so he may not have been at full strength. The only clear defeat of Shockwave I can recall is when he got thrown into a swamp by Optimus Prime to end a battle. But it still didn't destroy him. Didn't even slow him down. He was back 2 issues later.

Comic Shockwave = Total Decepticon Badass.

As for the cartoon, I think I'll go with Beast Megatron as well, just because he was so despicable. Assassinating a deactivated Optimus Prime in the past in order to change the future? Pure evil. Pure genius. But still not even close to comic Shockwave.

I must also give honorable mention to BM Tankor/Rhinox just because his turn was so shocking, original and divisive. It certainly was one of the very few good points BM had.

"Divisive" is certainly one way to put it! :lol:

But yes, I remember the "Oh god what" moment I had as a kid. And calling up my friend who I knew was also watching it at his house. "Tankor is who???"

Beast Machines Megatron. He was frighting by having a clear-cut goal and a real pov he wasn't evil for the sake of being evil. Plus he ate the sparks of other Transformers, sort of gives new meaning "until all are one".

Certain vagaries aside, Beast Megatron remained wonderfully consistent between Wars and Machines.

Soundwave was my first TF toy as a child, and has always remained my favorite. He was always loyal to Megs and had a small posse to fight for leadership when Megatron's rule was over. He seems to be loyal and patient, quite the opposite of Starscream.

True, I didn't really like Beast Machines but the whole ending arc was pretty...serious.

I'm pretty sure Galvatron once stepped on a puppy in the comics, so he gets my vote. Plus he was totally crackers.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Ramjet, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party Motobot Arcee, iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

Okay, now this is gonna go off topic, but I just got to know.

What's the thing between Armada Starscream and Linkin Park?
I've read it in Teletraan-1: Transformers wikia and stumbled across it on DeviantART, but I can't understand, that why are there so many jokes about Starscream and LP? Where's the connection?

BW/BM Megatron.
He was kinda mental, but it worked for a while. Though starting a time storm more than likely would have ended him as well. Remember, Optimus Prime save G1 Megatron and the others a few times throughout the time of Generation 1. So Beast Megs was willing to risk himself to and everybody around him to win.
And then when he lost, he still won! That's how Beast Machines started out by the way.
