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.

Has always been and will always be the most popular Transformer. My favourite by far, so whoever says Bumblebee is more popular, you're not a true Transformers fan.

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.

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!

I always thought that Optimus prime was the fan favorite in the transformers series in the toy line he was reborn as a power master and that's cool thing about him I would always call him a mighty autoboot warrior and if there ever was a crossover of transformers and star wars he would team up with the clone troopers and fight general grievous and that also makes him the best

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.

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.

Also he saved Optimus Prime in the Last Night with just using his original voice when they were still on Cybertron. He woke him up with his voice, and now he be ripped apart and regenerate just like those who can do the same in marvels and DC. Bumblebee's technology is way advanced.

Bumblebee is not just a small yellow robot he one of the best auto bot ever. First of all he has a cool car that everyone wants. Sencond he is so nice and powerful. Third of all he is very unique because in like almost all the transformers movies he use radio stations to communicate like come on that’s cool. And HE GET ALL THE HONEY!

Honestly bumblebee could beat Megatron. Optimus prime depends on him the most. You just judged your facts on T.V. and the rivalry. Bumblebee is as strong as optimus if he needs to be

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

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 just coolest. They should do transformers trilogy with 2 darker movies before he would be beaten like he always has to be. Would be cool to see couple movies where decepticons would be in winning side. Megatron, Soundwave, Shockwave, Barricade and of course Bumblebee. my top 5 transformers. They were done well in movies but too little screen time.

Megatron is the leader of the decepticons, and may be even stronger than Optimus. He is strong, smart, and persistent, although he may need to work up his attitude a bit.

My name is sachin. I like galvatron and megatron a lot. The megatron and galvatron is the powewrfull decepticon in the world than optimus prime. Megatron defeated otimus prime in transformers 2 and sure again galvatron will defeat prime in transformers 5

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.

One of the most intelligent scientist yet sometimes can be stupid as well when trying out his experiments, it's Starscream's intelligence that stops Megatron from killing him after all Starscream is an back stabber and is always trying to take charge of the Decepicons but knows that Megatron is to powerful for him beat in a one on one fight.
But even thou Starscream is already an leader of the seekers that's not enough for him he wants to lead all the Decepicons think that he could of won the war along time ago.
He gets my vote just because he is everything an Decepicon should be Ruthless.

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!

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 so cool because you never know what he's thinking. He has so much personality without ever having to emote with his face or voice. Soundwave will always be the best G1 character

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.

Soundwave is cold, calculating, and completely loyal to his master. He serves as the communications officer and surveillance chief, and will not hesitate to tell Megatron about the other decepticon's failures. He has sonic blast cannons and a huge armada of minions, being the smartest decepticon. Soundwave is just like me, smart and calculating.He is my favorite transformer and always will be.

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?

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.

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.

Iron hide is a bad butt robot and pulverized! This is proved because sentinel targets him in the movie.

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!

Ironhide is the best Robot ever. created for war, he's death on legs (or wheels) and he knows it (well, everybody knows it)

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 the best. I mean please guys, face it, without grimlock, the auto its would be toast. Not jealous just fact that he is a giant T. rex over here that breathes fire! Sheesh man, # grimlock stomps anyone

Grimlock, leader of the Dinobots, he transforms into a Tyrannosaurus Rex, the ultimate Autobot! "Grimlock crush Decepticons! Grimlock crush Shockwave! Grimlock is King! "

Loved this guy along with Ironhide as I personally think they are the best 2 transformers ever!

Who doesn't love him he is the best I would love for him and human torch and Leo Valdez in togther

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 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.

This guy is a total boss. Not only is he an intelligent transformer but controls giant drill worm things that can rip through entire buildings (and a military base) as seen in Dark of the Moon. He is also loyal to Megatron and unlike starscream, he overpowers Megatron. Optimus killed him by a fearsome uppercut, but in AOE we see an Easter egg of a revived version. Shockwave is the best Decepicon (and maybe transformer) of ALL TIME.

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.

Shockwave really came into his own in the comic. He captured all the Autobots and even beheaded Optimus! And that was in the beginning of the comic series! As a toy, he was the coolest. He was fully poseable in his robot mode, and his gum mode had 2 sound effects, lit up when fired, and was LOUD! (Also, he was the first Transformer I bought. )

9 Unicron

Bloody hell, he was voiced by Orson Welles in 1986, if that doesn't gain this planet munching, Decepticon upgrading floating head dude awesomeness points I don't know what does.

I've got a lovely bunch of planets, Diddily dee, here they are all standing in orbit... Oh god he's gonna eat them all RUN

He is a planet for gods sake, he can destroy earth if he wants too.

He's a planet that eats other planets

10 Jazz

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

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

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

I want him back because he died to quick and I want him to come back because he died so quickly

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!

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 10

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 got beaten in seconds by a weak megatron, but to be honest, he would have been killed anyway. He cannot keep a steady relationship with anyone. Possibly the worst transformer EVER (apart from hardshell)

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

**Spoiler alert! ** Optimus kills him in Bayformers! (In my opinion, it's a bad version of Transformers.)

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

13 Hot Rod

If you think Optimus Prime is the best, then why is't Hot Rod higher on this list? I mean after Optimus died Hot Rod took over and he became Rodimus Prime. Also clams.

What they do to you hot Rod they swapped you and bumblebee in the movies

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

I liked that hot rod took over a great underdog

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

No words can describe how great of a character he is.

Grimlock was not a decepticon, but anyway we're talking about Dinobot here and he was a badass!

15 Sideswipe

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.

Sideswipe is totally awesome. His looks just make him well...AAWSEEOME
His sword blades are death machines, damn he's good

He is the fastest and most skill autobot, his blades can cut through anything. He is the coolest. Trust me

Sideswipe is so low in the list! I always loved him, and his twin Suntreaker. Where is he anyway...?

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)

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.

It's a lot to say about him, he's the reason that made me love transformers age of extinction more than TF1,TF2 and TF3. I say that he had the best personality in the whole series.

Has my favorite type of car but that grenade he used was amazing

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

Cool

19 Jetfire

Why is Jetfire/Skyfire so low? Does nobody love him? In Generation 1 I was devastated when I thought they seriously killed him. I was relived after but not the point. He was awesome and seriously, who else did starscream have as a friend? Really? Anyone? Raise your hand! He deserved to be higher in the list, as he was also one of the few flying autobots and was a great example of the fact they weren't just BORN autobot or Decepticon but CHOSE

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Rodimus and Hotrod are the same guy

Hot rod's already on the list.

21 The Fallen

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.

Wow for someone that only optimus prime could beat he's so low

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 ...read more.

Primus is the strongest transformer

Lol a picture of the band primus is here

Created all the transformers except Unicron

He is the first prime

23 Omega Supreme

The old school last line of defense even for optimus

He transforms into a giant battle cruiser!

He can kill any prime

The greatest.

24 Ratchet

Ratchet is just about the most loyal Autobot I've ever known, in every timeline and continuity. He was the last Autobot on Earth twice, but managed to survive both times, has saved thousands of lives a dozen times, and Optimus would never again have a friend as true as the Autobot medic. He would rather die than let his leader, or any Autobot for that matter, be harmed. When it comes to heart, Ratchet is at the top of the list.

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!

Ratchet was always one of the best. He was both a warrior in the field and the autobots medic. I thought it was awesome when he and wheeljack MADE THE DINOBOTS. I mean come on! He created some of the most destructive and awesome warriors that made it to the top of the list! Why not ratchet?

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

25 Mirage

Mirage. Awesome, intelligent, cunning, fast, and shear amazing Ness. He should be number one on this list! 17 is acceptable! Raise him higher!

Cool ferrari. It is also such a pity mirage didn't get his own deluxe toy of a ferrari becuase of mattel problems. Seriously, blame it on Mattel

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

Mirage is one of the most coolest transformers I have ever seen in my life
