Dinobot and Megatron were my 2 favorite characters from the series, so this is good with me. Rhinox is a good character too, probably my favorite Maximal other than Primal

But five is a number too short. Top ten would have satisfy every body.

in order : Rampage/Depthcharge, Tigatron, Inferno, Cheetor, Rhinox, Waspinator, Black Arachnia, Megatron, Rattrap, Dinobot.

I know its easy to think that more is better, but you give a stellar example as to why it might not satisfy everyone. Your list doesn't have Optimus Primal, arguably the main character of the series (though I personally feel megatron shares a similar spotlight). So he is bound to have lots of fans, he was even the first Beast Wars MP figure. So just imagine how it would look like if i made a list of top 10 BW characters, and it doesnt include primal. The discussion would no longer be about who should be in a top 5 and instead be about Primal's absence.

And what's wrong with Tigerhawk? When he first showed up I wanted his toy BADLY as a kid. And then I got mad when he got killed off two episodes later. I wanted more of him. He was epically awesome, darn it!

Kinda the problem right there. He appears and gets killed off. Yes I know it's because his toy/character was in limbo, and it is neat it ties up a cliffhanger from mid-season 2, but he's a footnote at best. But that's Season 3 in general to me: introduce a whiz bang cool toy, and then don't really DO anything with it(barring Depth Charge).

As for Air Razor, she's not bad, and was another flyer. However, other than being a love interest for Tigertron and the Mcguffin for a really good episode("The Spark"), her impact in the show was minimal.

And this list was just off the top of my head. Who would you guys rank lower?
