Greatest Transformers

The Top Ten

1 Optimus Prime 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 KICKS YOU BUTT. Ooh, I love himmm. - ohright

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

HE is a great leader for the transformers and the best one in my opinion.

2 Megatron

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

The best villain of transformer franchise.

3 Bumblebee 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.

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.

I'm sorry, but how could you not love bumblebee? He is adorable with his little radio voice, and he seems so young compared to the ret of the autobouts.

4 Starscream 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.

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

Awesome fighting skills, pro defeater

5 Soundwave Soundwave

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

Hands down. Awesome voice and coolest transformations

6 Ironhide

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)

Ironhide is the coolest of all an on number 2 bumblebee. All thad say he is bad is not good into his head

7 Grimlock Grimlock

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

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

8 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 - 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

First he took on Megatron and died trying to stop him and he's optomis primes right hand what's not to like about jazz

9 Shockwave

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.

Logic brings all things to order

The Contenders

11 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

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

12 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

HOW IS JAZZ INFRONT OF SIDESWIPE SIDESWIPE IS ONE OF THE COOLEST TRANSFORMERS EVER!

13 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

BWAAH! Galvatron rules!

14 Dinobot

The most honorable robot I've ever seen
The best moments in my childhood was those with him

I like grimlock he kicks but he has a team of dinobots and he was a decepticon

15 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 - christangrant

unicorn

16 Lockdown 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. -

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.

17 Mirage

Common Mirage is the coolest transformer I have ever seen

G1 cartoon first 3 episodes says it all

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

so MLG

18 Rodimus Prime

leader and stronger of all transformers

Rodimus and Hotrod are the same guy

Hot rod's already on the list.

19 Crosshairs

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)

He is mu second favorite transformers character, after sideswipe.
