I agree with the movie VS animated series differences when it comes to Hot Rod.

He was the hero in the movie, but then afterwards he DID turn into a whiny second-guessing wuss. His design and fighting skills were freaking sweet through- although I DID think his Cybertronian Camper Mode was flat-out stupid- for the matrix I thought the vehicle mode would be much much cooler and more equipped.

You have to admit that things DID fall apart pretty bad after Prime died, so I guess you COULD chalk Rodimus off to being a crappy leader- but that was also crappy writing so I'd say his leadership was more of one of those "bad things happen to good guys" cases. He meant well but still did pretty bad..

My candidate would probably be Wheelie too though, because....well just freakin look at him. lol

I'd vote for Beachcomber. Give him a Combi van, beads and an acoustic guitar and you've won the war.

I think the worst Leader could be in the Universe who will not just be confused the hole fractions is Doubledealer. And after Double Dealer it is in fact G1 Rodimus Prime.

Motto: "Smashing Optimus Prime toys is the freedom of all sentient beings."

Optimus Prime, hands down. Let's look at the facts:

- Under his leadership, the Autobots lost their foothold on Cybertron. By the time the 80s movie came out, the Autobots were kicked out of Cybertron altogether and had to stage their home on Cybertron's moons and on Earth.

- Because of this, the war between the two factions had spilled over to other world - something that, despite Optimus's grievances in MTMTE and how the war wasn't "our problem", it escalated regardless.

- In "Rebirth", this is shortly after Rodimus handed the Autobot leadership back to Optimus, the Autobots had lost control of Cybertron (again) to Galvatron.

- Optimus lost to Galvatron while Rodimus didn't (Prime threw Galvatron out of Unicron at the end of the movie). Galvatron is one of the weakest Decepticon leader, if not the weakest, that faction has ever had. That speak volumes as to Optimus's leadership ability compared to Prime's.

- Under Prime's leadership, Cybertron prospered and developed diplomatic relationships with other worlds and established alliances. Under Optimus's leadership, however, the Autobots were made pariahs or targeted by humans many times throughout their time on Earth (Megatron's Master Plan, Attack of the Autobots, Aerial Assault, Prime Target, etc.)

- Even in the Japanese continuity (Headmasters), Optimus's leadership was shoddy. He couldn't prevent Cybertron becoming a burnt-out, inhospitable husk.
