The Top Ten
Optimus Prime is not just the coolest transformers of all time, or the coolest movie character, whether we are talking about cartoons, live action films, or even movies that have nothing to do with transformers. He is not just the coolest comic book character or video game character. He is not just the coolest action figure or best voiced over character. He is the coolest character EVER created for ANYTHING! Not a question, not a joke, not a myth; fact. He is the best!
He is awesome he is the best transformer of all time he is a leader and will leave nobody behind he is the main transformer to and he also killed sentinel and megatron and shock wave so yeah he is the best transformer
OPTIMUS PRIME KICKS YOU BUTT. Ooh, I love himmm. - ohright

I am disappointed that Megatron is so low on this list, I mean why is Bumblebee above him, just because Bee is kid appeal? Please without Megatron, Optimus would have no one to fight. Surely not Starscream since he wouldn't be able to put up much of a fight as Megatron... Well except Transformers Cybertron:Starscream anyway. I know the Transformers has had leader such as Darkmount and some others that I've never bothered to read too much into, but Megatron is and will always be the most iconic of them all.
Megatron is the prince robot galaxy, good fighter and super absolute king, to of world.
All hail the mighty megaton
I always find him a ton of fun. I know he's the bad guy and all, but I'll be damned if I didn't admit to rooting for MegsV 29 Comments
BUMBLEBEE GETS ALL THE HONEYS! - DRAIKO
Most people want his camaro vehicle mode for their car. He is so iconic.
He is just as good as Optimus Prime, he is just smaller.
So iconic and lovable!V 102 Comments
just awesome! I obviously mean leader starscream, not any other in toys. It is the jet mode that makes it so cool
He may be a coward but in the second movie he says something like "cowards sometimes survive" to megatron. Also the way he becomes half jet and transformer when flying, whilst taking down all the human's jets is awesome
Starscream is not mean. The truth is he was just a lonely former con and he doesn't have any other good friends and I want alexis to cheer him up and being a friend and I know her a long time ago in 2002 and 2003
He my favorite con because he alway try to be betray Megatron but anytime he does so got over powered and thrown out MegatronV 33 Comments
Iron hide is a bad butt robot and pulverized! This is proved because sentinel targets him in the movie.
Ironhide is a beast, so sad they killed him off. Optimus Prime I agree is a top character, but in my opinion he lacks personality. Iron Hide has guns, a cool voice, cool car, guns, nice personality, guns, and guns.
Ironhide is the best Robot ever. created for war, he's death on legs (or wheels) and he knows it (well, everybody knows it)
Always my Man! Guns, funny, loyal!V 21 Comments
He should be at least in the top 5 he destroys anything in its path
He just can't be hurt nothing stops him
He is a dinosaur that breathes fire what is cooler than that
Loved this guy along with Ironhide as I personally think they are the best 2 transformers ever!V 28 Comments
Soundwave is a cold and calculating leader of a mini army. In addition he can intercept waves on any frequency anywhere on the planet he is on. He is also most likely the second most intelligent deception second only to shockwave because he still has emotions, typically manifesting in his deadly loyalty to megatron. This makes him megatron's most trusted warrior above starscream and shockwave both of which want to replace megatron. This is why sound wave is and always will be my favorite transformer.
It doesn't matter what series, he's always table flipping awesome. He may be turning into a satellite, or he may be defying logic and becoming my personal favorite, the cassette player, but no matter what he's always the best. Plus who can resist calling the cassettes at least somewhat cute?
Sounwave superior destructicons inferior
Soundwave is a Loyal Decepticon who is just awesome, I love his G1 design and hate what Michael Bay did to the badass in RotF and DotMV 31 Comments
The most honorable robot I've ever seen
The best moments in my childhood was those with him
He is awesome
He killed a bunch of predacons in beast wars
Grimlock was not a decepticon, but anyway we're talking about Dinobot here and he was a badass!V 1 Comment
Dear Michael Bay will you please put Jazz in the movie again and the reason why I say this its because Jazz is my favourite transformer and I will wish he will come back. Jazz is a brave warrior and a nice car with nice weapons so please put him back. Please
Small Dude still Kicks butt - Hannibalbarka
Jazz is my mom's name he is small but a 1,000 times as strong as a adult he kicks butt. His car is awesome and very fast and causes lots of money so it is hard to get. He has sweet weapons they are cool. He die cause of Megatron but I want him to came back and be in Tranformers 4 and kill awesome Megatron. That is why I pick Jazz
He's an music lover Bot and knows how to kick buttV 25 Comments
Shockwave's design good, but he has a Driller worm that can tear road, buildings, and can be used as a decoy for Shockwave to be able to strike the Transformers out of nowhere, while the Transformer is busy fighting Driller. I like a lot more than Megatron. I bet there are more than one Driller bots in Cybertron where he could have brought to Earth and drill every building and road. - Goodzone
Everyone shockwave is stronger than megatron he has no emotions and computers as you know rule the world!
He's like Hal from the 2001: space odyssey neither have emotions to get in their way, and they follow no rules but logic. That's why Shockwave is my favorite villain of all time
He is smart, strong, he has zero emotion, he can kill Megatron in a flash if he wants to. He runs on logic alone. He dissects autobots like it’s nothing and is overall really coolV 21 Comments
I love this guy his transformer is awesome - VideoGamefan5
Awesome colors very frightening. I love this Autobot
You people better watch Transformers: Age of Extinction! Galvatron looks exactly like Gipsy Danger, and I love Pacific Rim. Galvatron gets the vote from me!
Way better than Megatron he can turn into anything so watch Transformers Age of Extinction to see what I'm talking about
He is just a remake of megatron but galvatron has the transformations
In the original movie Galvatron is Megatron remade by Unicron so he's Megatron x 10V 4 Comments
He eats PLANETS. He may not have a great personality, but my god, HE EATS PLANETS.
He is a planet for gods sake, he can destroy earth if he wants too.
He's a planet that eats other planets - christangrant

Jetfire was Starscream's only friend. If you ask me, I think Starscream threw away a perfectly good friendship. Whether they're the same gender or not, I believe that the two of them would've made a cute couple.
Come on, former decepticon turned autobot, Starscream's former best friend, gave Optimus his flight ability, epic warrior, gifted scientist, and one of the few Autobots that can travel faster than the speed of light. Jetfire is worthy to be one of the ultimate transformers.
Has crazy gear in number 2
I love this character skyfire or jetfire whatever, he is awesomeV 6 Comments
What they do to you hot Rod they swapped you and bumblebee in the movies
I liked that hot rod took over a great underdog - mexicandogfish
Hot Rod has the best weapon ever his time slower gun.
He is like super spicyV 6 Comments
I remember when sideswipe sliced sideways in half. it was so wicked
His swords are kick butt awesome. he sliced a transformer in half
I am the biggest fan of sideswipe! WHY? is he so low on this list he should at least be number 3
Sideswipe is agile and can kill a transformer in half. I thought he should have a higher rating though.He is also my favorite transformer since he looks cool and acts cool.V 21 Comments
He is a cool grey lamborghini aventador. Too bad he is evil as the deceptions always get cool cars (sideways got a Audi r8, soundwave got a emceed benz sls amg, stinger got a pagani huayra and lockdown himself got a lamborghini aventador)
Has my favorite type of car but that grenade he used was amazing
Honestly, he's a sweet bounty hunter and has a nice ship and good-sized army of assassins and robot wolves. Makes a better Decepticon than the rest, and he's not even one of them. -
NO, HE KILLED MY FAVORITE CHARACTER!V 7 Comments
Ratchet is my boy. I wouldn't have been interested in Transformers if it wasn't for him. He is a sweet, smart, and compassionate robot, especially for a medic. Wish he wouldn't have died. Yes Ratchet, you are the BEST!
Ion't get it whats not to like about Ratchet. If it wasn't for him there would be no medic and with no medic the more bots get hurt and gives them a higher chance of loosing I feel that Ratchet should br one of the top favorites
Sad that he is not higher I like this character and it sad that he died in the 4th movie
Very Underrated.V 11 Comments
He is underrated because everyone overlooks him because he is "weak". He led the auto bots in their darkest hours at the last few episodes of the original series. He is well trained and just plain awesome!
No, no, Ultra Magnus should be in front of Bumblebee. Optimus trained Ultra Magnus himself! Magnus is strict, but he is powerful. - Whitestorm98
He's almost the same as Optimus prime because Optimus prime is his master and trainer
Ultra Magnus should be 1st and Galvatron should be 2nd and they don't have High Tide what is wrong with these people!?V 7 Comments
The leader of the maximals turns into a gorilla and is just plain awesome should be way higher. - Theawesome7
leader and stronger of all transformers
Hot rod and rodimus may technically be the same bot, but they are NOT the same character - DeFistOfZimbabwe
Rodimus and Hotrod are the same guy
Hot rod's already on the list.
Has the power of invisibility. Makes me jealous because I need to be invisible while I'm at awful school. - Transformers234
Mirage. Awesome, intelligent, cunning, fast, and shear amazing Ness. He should be number one on this list! 17 is acceptable! Raise him higher!
Mirage is one of the most coolest transformers I have ever seen in my life
so MLGV 6 Comments
The scene where crosshairs releases his parachute and guns is one of the best scenes in any movie
I saw him in age of extinction and he looked AWESOME! Plus love his personality
He's just the best, trench coat, goggles, two guns he is perfect. (age of extinction)
Crosshairs was amazing in the last night plus he is an awesome wepons master and looks awesomeV 4 Comments
I love his transformation, and his weapons to destroy an entire Air Base. He is the first Transformers to show up in the Cinematic Universe and the one who probably killed more than any Transformers in the movies, including Optimus Prime. Since he destroyed an entire Air Base.
Took down military base
Coolest looking character in the movies, in addition to being one of the memorable decepticons in the series.
One of the best transformers as he, Megatron and Starscream wrecked the heck out of Optimus in ROTF and is physically way bigger than Optimus! Shame he died though.V 2 Comments
He is just so cool
I love his awesome size and sucking ability. I don't mean the one that was actually called Brawl. - thedoctor
I can't believe no one put him up until I did! he's truly awesome! - Abejorro97
He has five people hooked on to him
This guy should at least be in top 20V 1 Comment
The old school last line of defense even for optimus
He can kill any prime
He transforms into a giant battle cruiser!
The greatest.V 1 Comment
Funny and strong I like when he thought the spider is poisons and when the red bumblebee was on him he use his smoking thing and killed him
Watch transformers age of extinction HE KICKS BUTT - thegreatvoter
Should be close to 10 the he has mini guns swords everything
Hound is kickassV 7 Comments
Because he teleports and has cool colors.
I always thought Skywarp was pretty awesome. 1. He can teleport. 2. He's cute. 3. All of the above.
This guy is hilarious in Transformers Cybertron and deserves a spot in the top tens because even though he looks weak he's actually strong with his emense gun that's larger than himself, is loyal to Megatron unlike Starscream, is brave and stands up to Autobots unlike Starscream, likes to mess around in a helpful way and has part of Starscream's personality (if your a fan of Starscream, which I'm not for plenty of reasons).
Thundercracker is actually who I'm dressing up as for Halloween, why isn't he higher? I always loved him and he should have been higher
Beast and better than starscream for sure
He is a cool Pagani Huayra and bumblebee called him a cheap knock off (that is quite funny)
Stinger sucks. made by KSI, insulted bumbleebee. and useless
Jazz has a new girl friend!
Wow for someone that only optimus prime could beat he's so low
Hella low. If it wasn't for the matrix of leadership, the humans would have been screwed
Al the way down at number 43! He has to be in the top 2! Only Optimus prime can beat him.
In the scope of all transformers there are many who could take him. hell, starscream in the apex armor wiped the floor with optimus himself and dreadwing, who was nearly optimus' equal, at the same. time. - DeFistOfZimbabweV 4 Comments
He is a awesome samurai who turn into a Bugatti Veyron and a helicopter he is formidable
He has two modes, a helicopter and a bugatti veyron. That is what makes him awesome
He is a badass samurai that turns into a helicopter. enough said
Honerable, badass, very well written. - TheDarkOne_221bV 12 Comments
Easily the most well liked and well known Female Transformer ever. She proves that girls are as tough, if not tougher than guys, but at the same time knows who matters most.
The best female transformer ever created. Arcee is a skilled and epic warrior. It's a good thing she's on the heroes side. She was actually pretty HOT for a machine.
She is sleek and has a good model with awesome weapons!
Beautiful,powerful and THE best female transformer ever.V 6 Comments
He's a deception turned autobot and is so small but so cool
Prowl is a logic- driven character who oversees the seedier and less noble, altruistic, operations of the autobot military effort. He is a logician whose weakness is that he is too cold and calculating. Still a strong and cool character however.
Prowl was very important in the IDW comics, not so much in the show which disappointed me. I think prowl is awesome and deserved more fans. SHOW YOURSELVES PROWL FANS AND FACE ME!
Dude needs to be in the movies like really!
Prowl is really great as it should be in transformers movies.V 1 Comment
Primus should be number one because he finally Biyouna crying and you macrons the second strongest in all of the deceptive cons he's actually the first strongest even over Megatron because he came along time before Megatron reanimated him but he teamed up with Optimus prime to defeat him and Optimus prime used the main matrix of leadership to defeat him because he was a follower of Primus but Megatron was a follower of you to Chron
Primus is the strongest transformer
Lol a picture of the band primus is here

Saleen S281 Police car, decepticon, to punish and enslave...
I liked the ps2 game for the first movie (surprisingly) it was better to play than the movie itself, it put scenes they skimmed over in the movie under a magnifying glass. But this decepticon was surprisingly hard to fight, but he was definitely my favorite to play as, and in the movie he was still definitely the coolest, they made him die too easy.
Barricade is awesome, that's all I have to say
He is the third strongest
No matter what anyone says he will always be at the top of my list. Scientist in the g1, wrecker in the Prime. He's just amazing!
Wheeljack is the best transformer ever
He was also the first transformer ever to be seen
The best sicentist I’m my opinion and deserves to be on the top ten
Predaking is stronger than Optimus and Megatron. That says enough!
Dudes a bad ass and supposedly the most powerful transformer
He is awesome
Number 1V 2 Comments
Nobody loves the sexy gambler? So low in the list
He should be further up he is funny and badass
Fast sleek cool gun awesome colors
He is cool enough saidV 1 Comment
Tidal Wave is an awsomely giant Transformer
Yess. Breakdown is my favorite Decepticon in Transformers Prime. Surprised why he isn't higher in the list. Badass and just the best.
Bruticus turns into a space shuttle, a helicopter, a tank, a jeep AND a missile carrier. He can fire off artillery strikes, shred autobots with his rotor blades and can then roast them with his flame thrower or simply blast them with his massive rifle. BRUTICUS=BADASS
He has a flamethrower a blade shield a giant gun and smashes stuff
His bad ass power hit and flamethrower is the best

Dread wing is supposed to be one of the the best deception on the list. He did great on transformer prime but bad thing he died. He could fight up with useless bulkhead, moron wheel jack and the cheater Optimus. But everyone like the auto bots, I am insanely disappointed. If I could make my own list I will put the stupid auto bots at the last, including Optimus and bumblebee.
In transformers prime, he is a cool deception. He is a skilled warrior. He have a laser cannon, a sword and explosives. He is one of the greatest transformers. He is brave and powerful enough to fight up with Optimus prime.
Who do you think will Win?
In transformers prime He is a coolest deception. He is skilled in explosives as well as fighting with a sword. He could kill Optimus prime. He have a sword, a laser cannon and explosives for weapons. He also have the ability to fly.
Dreadwing pretty much fails every mission assigned to him. For some reason though, I still like him okay. - Transformers234V 4 Comments
WHY DID DIS DUDE DYE SO EARLY ON! I personally think he would have been a great opposite to bumblebee and sideswipe. He could have replaced that bulky dude in the forest battle and he looks cool to! A1, awesome transformer.
WHY IS SUNSTREAKER ALL ALONE?! Well it's no wonder he wanted to destroy all the humans. Why does his twin have more fans then he does?! He's got audio fins on the sides of his head! He's gorgeous, and awesome!
Sunstreaker is my favorite other then Optimus Prime,
City transformer bom
Amazing toy and in comics very cool
I love metroplex because he is huge
Huge... Huge!V 3 Comments
SixShot, the rogue transformer. Attitude of his own. Can transform into 6 forms. Can kick Megatron and Optimus butts at his will. What more need to be said.. (Love the episode where Megatron wss sucking up to him.. Haha)
He was built for war. He apparently cannot die.
