“I’m more than just a pretty face."
ARCEE has gone through many changes during her career as an AUTOBOT. From pink and white colors to a sleeker dark blue, ARCEE is one of the few female TRANSFORMERS to stand the test of time. ARCEE has proven herself in battle time and time again - whether it is against UNICRON, SHOKARACT or even JAHIAXUS. ARCEE has lost many partners during the Great War, but her most painful memory is losing her comrade CLIFFJUMPER at the hands of STARSCREAM. Two people she could never do without, however is her human friend JACK DARBY, and her great-nephew, RATTRAP.
Using the former leader of the DECEPTICONS as his namesake, MEGATRON orchestrated a plot to steal the Golden Disc, an ancient relic from the time of the AUTOBOT/DECEPTICON war. The disc led MEGATRON and his PREDACON crew to ancient Earth, where they, along with the pursuing MAXIMALS, reformatted into indigenous life-forms, instigating the BEAST WARS. After MEGATRON conquered the alien technology of the Vok, discovered the crashed Autobot Ark, nearly killed OPTIMUS PRIME, and gained control of the DECEPTICON warship NEMESIS, he was eventually defeated and returned to CYBERTRON by OPTIMUS PRIMAL. Once there, MEGATRON created an army of VEHICONS to help him conquer the planet. Unfortunately his beloved rubber ducky was left behind on primitive Earth.
WHEELJACK has built everything from magnetic inducers to immobilizers to gyro-inhibitors, and even the occasional DINOBOT. While his inventions often indeed do what they are supposed to, they just as often blow up. WHEELJACK is also a member of the WRECKERS, a division of AUTOBOT warriors who don’t play by the rules and often take on missions that others can’t - or won’t. When called upon, WHEELJACK serves as the chief weapons officer and ship’s engineer for the team. His personal ship, the JACKHAMMER, served as his mobile headquarters in the wake of the great shutdown of CYBERTRON. WHEELJACK had made it his personal mission to cruise the stars in search of lost AUTOBOTS, but specifically for WRECKERS who have lost their way.
RODIMUS is young, naïve, headstrong, and daring when it comes to his own safety in the field. Willing to push himself to the limit in order to get the job done, RODIMUS is known for conceiving highly dangerous plans to achieve his objectives. Believing that no bot should ever be left behind, RODIMUS will even put his own spark on the line to keep this promise to all who serve under him. Despite his immaturity, RODIMUS is considered an inspirational figure to many of his fellow AUTOBOTS, and some have even come to call him RODIMUS PRIME. Unfortunately, one time RODIMUS got in OPTIMUS PRIME’S way with disastrous results.

'cause let's face it, as far as evil leaders go, they should have evil plans, and have great grasp on the english language.
And never EVER be ashamed to be caught on film in a bathtub with a rubber duck.

Sky-Byte is one of (if not the) most renown characters of the 2001-2002 Robots in Disguise cartoon, in which he served as Megatron's second-in-command of the Predacons. He was one of the series's comic relief characters (kind of like Waspinator from Beast Wars), except that, whereas Waspinator's incompetence stemmed form getting blown up all the time, Sky-Byte's bumbling nature was due to the fact that his plans almost never worked and/or he'd goof up any other plans performed by the Predacons/Decepticons. But, in spite of his flaws as a field commander, fans really took to the character for his being so hilarious and sympathetic a villain. He was so devotedly loyal to Megatron, a la Beast Wars Inferno and Animated Lugnut, but his loyalties weren't so often rewarded, so one could not help but feel sorry for the guy. But at times when he wasn't failing missions, he was often in a chipper mood with a theatrical sense of (over)confidence. And though he was a Predacon and did a lot of rotten things, at the core, he wasn't all that bad a guy. He was a big softy who liked Haiku poetry and, though he'd never admit it, had taken a shine to the Autobots' human friend Koji. He'd sometimes even have to wind up helping the Autobots out of a jam if it benefitted himself too, such as the time he and the Autobots saved a skyscraper together from falling down on top of themselves (as well as saving the humans atop the building from falling to their deaths). All in all, he was a lovable character with a hilarious and charming personality.

I said it before, there are 500 better choices to induct before Sky-Byte.

As far as a full toyline with a full cartoon series, I think R.I.D. is by far the least known.
