Top 10 Best Decepticons in the Transformers Franchise

The Top Ten
1 Megatron Megatron is a character from the Transformers franchise, created by Hasbro in 1984, based on a toy design by Takara.

Not even a debate. Megatron is the Decepticons.

Nice and strongest

The same as the fallen a leader and a guy who killed optimus prime in 2 movies

2 Starscream Starscream is a fictional character in the Transformers franchise. He is one of the most frequently occurring characters in the Transformers fictional work, appearing in almost all versions of the story.

He helped the decepticons win however he was killed by Sam. He should fly and kill Sam and the autobots because most autobots cannot fly! He is also Cooler than the other decepticons.

Never interrupt his speech.

Starscream is the best.

A jet who sometimes betrays megatron but is still a cool transformer

3 Soundwave Soundwave is the name of a fictional character appearing in various Transformers franchises. His most famous transformation is that of a microcassette recorder.

I love soundwave even though born when the show ended my dad did a great impression that made me love him, without soundwave the decepticons wouldn't have gotten cruciall info that the decepticons needed, any way my vote goes to soundwave.

Soundwave superior barricade, blackout, and shockwave inferior

4 Shockwave Shockwave is the name of several fictional characters in the Transformers franchise. Throughout his incarnations, he is usually distinguished by a laser cannon instead of one of his hands and his distinctive face, which is featureless save for a single robotic eye.

His battle in dark of the moon was great. Every appearance in it made me think, "He is a force to be reckoned with. More so than even Soundwave." Cold and calculating, he not only packs the brain but the brawn and the guns. Soundwave packs brains

Turns into a space-y blaster and seizes control of the Decepticons in several continuities. Need I say more?

This guy screams evil! He probably could take out megatron!

5 Blackout
6 Thundercracker
7 Skywarp
8 Lugnut
9 Blitzwing
10 Barricade
The Contenders
11 The Fallen

How is the fallen not number 1 he is the most powerful decepticon and can only be defeated by a prime.

A leader of the decepticons one of the primes and one of the first decepticons

12 Hatchet

He is extremely scary and not for kids!

Hatchet makes Megatron look like a harmless bug that is how deadly he looks he is a dread after all

I had to drink vodka to get rid of this scary horrible beast from my mind

13 Knock Out
14 Devastator
15 Lockdown

Awesome! His hook is badass and he is the best Decepticon although he is a mercenary. I liked his role in AOE, better than Megatron and Starscream. If he was a full Decepticon in Extinction, then he should've been the leader and replaced Galvatron and survived as leader of the Decepticons.

16 Bonecrusher
17 Brawl

Brawl is seriously underrated. He was the strongest Decepticon in the first movie (he was after all a fricking TANK). Not to mention he has guns everywhere on his body and was literally made to kill and nothing more.

It took the efforts Ratchet, Ironhide, Jazz, Bumblebee and several NEST soldiers together to actually kill him.

Brawl is so strong that in a 1v1 he could have probably even killed Optimus Prime.

18 Scorponok

A scorpion who hid in plain sight and survived movie 1 but died in movie 2

19 Rampage
20 Ravage
21 Laserbeak
22 Long Haul
23 Scrapper
24 Mixmaster
25 Frenzy
