Greatest Transformers

The Top Ten

1 Optimus Prime Optimus Prime is a fictional character from the Transformers franchise. Optimus Prime is consistently depicted as having strong moral character, excellent leadership, and sound decision-making skills, and possesses brilliant military tactics, powerful martial arts, and advanced alien weaponry.

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!

Optimus Prime is the best Autobot ever! No one should replace him!

Here is how he is legendary in the last knight. He jumped of a three-headed dragon named Dragonstorm and killed all the infernocons in one single strike.

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

2 Bumblebee Bumblebee is a fictional character from the Transformers franchise. In most incarnations, Bumblebee is a small, yellow Autobot with most of his alternative vehicle modes inspired by several generations of the Chevrolet Camaro/Pontiac Firebird muscle cars.

Bee is the Funniest and the coolest Transformer in the same time

I like how the changed Bumblebee's character because he's braver and more heroic now. In the origianl cartoon, he only shot at the Decepticons twice, in the first epsidoe, and we don't know if he hit them or not.


Most people want his camaro vehicle mode for their car. He is so iconic.

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

Megatron is the only Decepticon leader that I will accept. The series just wouldn't be the same without him.

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.

All hail the mighty megaton

Megatron is the prince robot galaxy, good fighter and super absolute king, to of world.

4 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.

Starscream would've killed Optimus Prime in Transformers Prime Season One Episode Fourteen, if mister "only I can kill Optimus Prime" Megatron wouldn't have rammed into him. Also, Starscream's more successful than Megatron. He makes a better leader than Megatron. He even outsmarted the "great" Optimus Prime. He survived all alone in the wild, even though everyone thought he would die.He acquired the apex armor while Dreadwing and Optimus were having a childish fight. He killed Cliffjumper in the FIRST EPISODE. All of this happened with Starscream's greatest incarnation; the one from Transformers Prime. ALL HAIL LORD STARSCREAM!

We need Starscream. Why? So we can have someone to laugh at. Without him, the series would be boring. I mean, I would actually miss his screechy voice.

He's like THE BEST DECEPTICON WHO EVER LIVED! He's spectacular! They should make a number zero just for him. Plus, Megatron just SUCKS!

just awesome! I obviously mean leader starscream, not any other in toys. It is the jet mode that makes it so cool

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

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

Sound wave deserves to be higher up on this list he is such an interesting and iconic transformer

6 Ironhide Ironhide is a fictional robot superhero character in the Transformers robot superhero franchise. According to the original creator of the Transformers names, Bob Budiansky, Ironhide was named after the television series Ironside.

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)

I loved iron hide he was my favourite he was funny and awesome they shouldn't of made him die as he was the best!

7 Grimlock Grimlock is the name of several fictional robot characters in the Transformers franchise. He is usually portrayed as the immensely strong, power-mongering leader of the Dinobots, a small subfaction of Autobots that transform into dinosaurs.

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

He's so big and can stomp on transformers

8 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.

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.

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

Shockwave made the dinobots and controls the insecticons (according to Transformers fall of Cybertron) plus he is cold, emotionless, calculating, and looks like a boss. Shockwave is loyal to megaton, however he is secretly and effectively planning to overthrow Megatron. unlike Starscream. Shockwave is in fact stronger than Megatron, and easily the most intelligent transformer. Plus he looks like a complete and utter boss (his DoTM incarnation looks amazing, however he should have done more and should have been the main antagonist). So, all in all, Shockwave is a complete and utter boss.

9 Unicron

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

"Look at the talking planet! "

10 Jazz

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

Jazz is always a great character no matter what universe he's a part of, but the movie one was easily my favorite.

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

The Newcomers

? Sunstorm
? Lugnut

“ALL HAIL TO THE GLORIOUS MEGATRON!” Probably the funniest Decepticon to exist. Even though Starscream is my favorite, Lugnut is too much to get a couple of laughs from

The Contenders

11 Galvatron

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

He's the strongest non god transformer

12 Sentinel Prime Sentinel Prime is the name of several fictional characters in the various Transformers series. First mention of Sentinel Prime was in issue #65 of the US Marvel Comics Transformers series, where he was mentioned to hold the Autobot Matrix of Leadership before Optimus Prime.

He only got beaten by Megatron because Megatron fired from back otherwise, on the building he already defeated Megatron. And even Optimus was losing.

Sad he's almost as strong as Optimus and he's down here

Tell me again why he's not in the top 5

He can 1 shot any transformer like he did to ironhide

13 Hot Rod

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

Hot Rod has the best weapon ever his time slower gun.

He is like super spicy

14 Dinobot

A stunning example of honor, heroism, and character complexity. Truly the greatest of Cybertron!

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

15 Sideswipe

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

I like him because of his wheel feet and scissor hands

16 Lockdown

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.

He one of the villain all time

17 Trypticon

He is just so cool

18 Hot Shot

I love this guy his transformer is awesome

Awesome colors very frightening. I love this Autobot


19 Jetfire

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

Jetfire/Skyfire has been a staple in transfomers, being in most incarnations of the franchise. It's a shame he doesn't appear to be as popular as he used to be. Becoming one of the more iconic Transformers through the years he deserves to be higher on This list.

20 Rodimus Prime

He may not be Optimus Prime. But he is an Autobot Leader. His self doubt gives him the iconic relatable character that we all know and love. He may not be the most Iconic character, but he is a Prime.

leader and stronger of all transformers

Hot rod and rodimus may technically be the same bot, but they are NOT the same character

Rodimus and Hotrod are the same guy

21 The Fallen

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.

He is used to be one of the PRIMES how is he so low!

22 Primus Primus is an American rock band based in San Francisco, California, currently composed of bassist Les Claypool, guitarist Larry LaLonde and drummer Tim Alexander. Les Claypool is regarded as one of the best bassists of all time for his slap-bass ability in notable songs like "My Name Is Mud", "The Toys more.

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

He is the first prime

23 Omega Supreme

The old school last line of defense even for optimus

He can kill any prime

He transforms into a giant battle cruiser!

Totally badass

24 Mirage

Has the power of invisibility. Makes me jealous because I need to be invisible while I'm at awful school.

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

Common Mirage is the coolest transformer I have ever seen

25 Ratchet

The medic it is the hardest job on the battlefield and ratchet rocks it

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
