Continuation from the title: "Who aren't Megatron, Starscream, Shockwave, Soundwave, Galvatron, or Devastator."

Out of a mixture of boredom & just wanting to post a journal for the fun of it, I wanted to do a Top 10 list of some of my favorite Decepticons from the Transformers series. They can be from any continuity & since they are Decepticons by ancestry, I will be inclusive to Predicons from Beast Wars as well. But I will be excluding Megatronus Prime/The Fallen, Unicron, The Sharkticons, & the Quintessons since they aren't Decepticons. They are antagonistic forces to the Autobots, yes, but they aren't Decepticons.

Number 10: Demolisher from Transformers: Armada.



Though not the brightest of soldiers, he is 100% loyal to Megatron & the vision of Decepticon supremacy. So much so, that Megatron actually seems to care about Demolisher as more than just a simple grunt in the Anime series. Not to mention, everything about this guy just SCREAMS what I imagine of when I think "Decepticon". Big, mean, scary, turns into something with a lot of firepower (Missile Tank), the works! You could make the same point for Lugnut from Transformers: Animated, and you'd be right. But I just freaking love the hell outta Demolisher. I think a part of that is because he came first & he made a bigger impression on me. But it could also be because Lugnut sometimes comes off as a bit of a kiss-ass. But that could be just me.

Number 9: The Insecticons (Original Trio) from The Transformers: Generation One.



OK, kinda a copout, but I can't really think of one without thinking of the other two. They're one of the very first Decepticon special teams, they're each unique in their own way, and they all bring something to the table. Bombshell can implant Cerebral Shells that take control of his victims' minds to do his bidding, Shrapnel can control electricity on a grand scale, Kickback can use his powerful legs to land a mean & powerful kick on his opponents, and together, they can create clones of themselves, consume anything organic & inorganic, and convert it into Energon. Not to mention their Insect Alt-Modes are pretty cool. Bombshell is a Rhinoceros Beetle, Shrapnel is a Stag Beetle, Kickback is a Locust. Pretty standard, but these are some of my favorite Insects.

Number 8: Thunderblast/Chromia from Transformers: Galaxy Force/Cybertron.



(Let me be clear. I prefer the Japanese version of this series because frankly, I find the English interpretation to be unprofessional most of the time. But Hasbro did come up with some decent names for the characters. So, that's why I often find myself referring to GF Chromia by her US dub name Thunderblast, since I associate the name Chromia with the Classic G1 Fembot.)

Until Thunderblast came along, it had never really accrued to me that the Decepticons are mostly all dudes. You could say the same for the Autobots, but they had Fembots first. Arcee, Elita-1, Chromia, Moonracer, Firestar, Beta, The Paradron Medics, Minerva, Clipper, Airrazor, Botanica, Blackarachnnia, Glyph, Ariel, Override, these are just a handful of Autobots/Maximals/Cybertrons I can name off the top of my head that came out before the IDW Comics! I was gonna include Alana from the that one G1 episode (Y'know, Seaspray's lady friend), but she was never official inducted into the Autobots.

Now, how many female Decepticons/Predacons/Destrons can you name off the top of your head? The answer: very few. Yes, Nightbird was just recently officially made a Decepticon via the Takara Legends fiction, and since Hasbro & Takara now own the rights to The Go-Bots, Crasher can be considered a female Decepticon (Hell, she even got an official TF action figure!), and Blackarachnnia was a Predacon for a majority of the Beast Wars, and Dezusaras has a wife named Esmeral, and Leozack has a sister named Lyzack.

But when I think "Female Decepticon", 2 characters immediately come to the forefront of my mind: Slipsteam (The female Starscream Clone from TF: Animated) or Thunderblast! Why? They weren't the first "Femmecons", but like Arcee, they made a big impression. Thunderblast just made a bigger impression on me, which is why I included her on this list. Though I come down pretty hard on the Cybertron English dub, I can't say it's without merit. Making Thunderblast a "Beach Party-Valley Girl" cliché is definitely a way to make an impression. Also fitting since she turns into a Speed Boat. Her Japanese Galaxy Force portrayal is also fitting. She's more of a floozy who constantly flirts the most powerful guys in the series. And that, to me at least, is just hilarious. But that could be because I'm used to Anime clichés.

Number 7: Blitzwing from The Transformers: Generation One.



What's cooler than being a robot who turns into an Assault Tank or a robot who turns into a Fighter Jet? Being a robot who can turn into both an Assault Tank AND a Fighter Jet! Being one of the first Triple-Changers (Or "Tripletrons/Triplecons") introduced in the series, Blitzwing is a longtime fan favorite for a reason. He's both a Tank & a Jet, he's brutal & fierce, and he will kill without a second thought. Also, his TF: Animated interpretation is just way too entertaining.

Number 6: Waspinator from Beast Wars: Transformers.



One of the original Predacons to fight under Beast Era Megatron's command, Waspinator was a magnet for misfortune. Most of the time, this guy couldn't go more than 3 episodes without getting shot, stabbed, set on fire, disassembled, decapitated, exploded, or a combination of any of these. He even got possessed by the disembodied immortal Spark of Starscream once! And it was just too funny.

Number 5: Tidal Wave from Transformers: Armada.



If I could think of the Decepticon equivalent to Omega Supreme.... Who wasn't a Combiner.... I'd be hard-pressed not to think of Tidal Wave. The guy is massive, turns into a giant Battle Ship that can separate into several components, and is a powerhouse of pure destruction & bad-assery! Also, he's gay.



Yeah. When he was reformatted into Shockfleet in TF: Superlink, he came outta the closet in the most flamboyant, stereotypical, "Kamen Rider Bravo" way possible. Hearing him shout "Gal-Sama".... Just.... Hilarious. But again, it could be because I'm so used to anime clichés. But, Superlink aside, Tidal Wave is just plain awesome! And I can totally imagine him holding his own against Omega Supreme in a massive throw down.

Number 4: Scorponok from Transformers: Energon (Dreamwave Comics).



The reason why I'm being specific to the Dreamwave Energon Comics version of Scorponok is because Simon Furman wrote his character so well! Leader of a vicious Decepticon Terrorist Cell, the "Terrorcons", Scorponok introduced himself into the story by strutting in, interrupting Starscream's attempts to recruit Tidal Wave, transformed into his Scorpion Tank Mode, and freaking BLASTED Starscream!! Easily rivaling G1 Galvatron's walk in & ice a mother****er scene from The Transformers: The Movie! Scorponok is ruthless, terrifying, and ambitious. And, while these are traits he shares with his G1 counterpart, he just owns the hell outta them! Also, in the Cybertron Comics from Fun Publications, He was revived to be one of Unicron's undead slaves. So, that's awesome!

Number 3: Dreadwing from Transformers: Prime.



What do you get when you had Tony Todd combine the traits of a Klingon Warrior with a Hirogen Hunter? Well, you get Dreadwing! This Elite Seeker Commander was a proud & honorable warrior who could go one on one with Optimus Prime himself! He is 100% loyal to Megatron & the Decepticon ideal. However, what sets Dreadwing apart from the likes of your typical Decepticon is that he is someone who will keep his word of honor when he gives it. Whether it comes to putting aside his differences with an enemy to take out a common foe or sparing the life of an enemy when in a stalemate. But what really sets Dreadwing apart from other Decepticons, he's more loyal to his bother, Skyquake than anything else.

So much so that when he learned of how Starscream had desecrated Skyquake's remains by reviving him as a Dark Energon zombie and Megatron's willingness to cover it up, Dreadwing realized that the Decepticons were no better than the evils that had stood against in the early days of the war, and willingly stole the Forge of Solus Prime and gave it to the Autobots, and tried like hell to kill Starscream to avenge his fallen brother, even going against Megatron's orders to stand down, which ultimately resulted in his demise by Megatron's hand.

Dreadwing is a very interesting character and almost rivals Dinobot in terms of the "Bad Guy with a sense of Honor" archetype. Definitely died before his time.

Number 2: The Combaticons/Bruticus from The Transformers: Generation One.



They might not have been the first Combiner Team, but they are one of those groups that come to mind when I just think "Decepticons". Consisting of the violent bruiser Brawl, the egomaniacal snob Blast Off, the con artist Swindle, the extremely unhinged Vortex, and the brilliant tactician Onslaught, these guys are what I consider the Ultimate Decepticon Militia. Though they might differ in some departments, there is one quality they all share: the desire to win at any and all cost! They are effective as an elite unit, but when all else fails and the power gantlet has been cast, they combine to form the mighty Bruticus!!!



A Big, Powerful, Menacing tower of pure Doom, Death, & Destruction, Bruticus is as mean as they come! But sadly, he's also dumber than they usually come. Though the reason for this lack of intelligence differs from continuity to continuity, it doesn't change the fact that Bruticus might be stupid, but he's got it where it counts for the Decepticons. Strength, Might, Power, and Guns. Big. Fat. Guns! And it was enough to take down Devastator! "Bruticus devastate Devastator!!"

Before my Number 1, here are a few of my honorable mentions.

Honorable Mention Number 1: Barricade from the first live-action Transformers film.

(I'm using a picture of his Aligned Continuity counterpart since Bayformers still sucks.)


Don't get me wrong. The first Transformers film is a stupid piece action fluff, but compared to all of the sequels, it's actually OK, but that's mostly due to Stephan Spielberg keeping Michael Bay on a very short leash & swatting him across the nose with a rolled up newspaper when he acted up (Ha-Ha!! He's a Bitch!) so the writers could actually make a decent story. And one of the good ideas that Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci gave us was Barricade. Think about it. A Decepticon who transforms into a Police Car? That's so outta place! But it works so well for the Decepticons in terms of a tactical advantage. As a police car, Barricade can go places other car Decepticons can't! Plus, the Autobots wouldn't see it coming.

Honorable Mention Number 2: The Constructicons/Devastator from The Transformers: Generation One.



Being the first in a long line of Decepticon Combiner teams, the Constructicons are the builders, mechanics, & engineers for Megatron's forces. Each member of the team serves a purpose on a project and they all work well together.... In more ways than one. "CONSTRUCTICONS! MERGE FOR THE KILL!!"



"PREPARE FOR EXTERMINATION!!" "NOTHING SURVIVES THE DEVASTATOR!! NOTHING!!"

He's big, he's mean, he's purple and green. He is The Menacing Devastator!! The original Decepticon Combiner. He's as iconic as they come & Transformers wouldn't be as memorable without him.

Honorable Mention Number 3: Trypticon from The Transformers: Generation One.



It's only fitting that the Decepticon's first Titan would be a gigantic rampaging reptilian who can level cities in one day. And Trypticon is certainly a force to be reckoned with. He's basically the Transformer equivalent of Godzilla. But with this list I was going for my personal favorites who don't really seem so obvious.

Honorable Mention Number 4: Cyclonus & Scourge from The Transformers: Generation One.





Galvatron's Lieutenants and Heralds of Unicron, These two made a big name for themselves in the Marvel UK stories & Season 3 of the original cartoon. And while their portrayal & alliance may vary from continuity to continuity, one thing never changes: Cyclonus is a proud warrior, while Scourge is a great tracker.

Honorable Mention Number 5: Runamuck & Runabout from The Transformers: Generation One.



True, the Battlecharger Twins might not be the best at doing.... Well, anything except crashing Autobots. But they are memorable. Hell, the vandalized the Statue of Liberty. That's something I won't forget.

Honorable Mention Number 6: Black Shadow from Transformers: Victory.



In all honesty, I could see this guy being a servant of Galvatron. His wicked design alone is enough to make me wish we'd see more of him in the Comics. But, sadly.... Tarn Happened.

Honorable Mention Number 7: Overlord from Transformers: Super-God Masterforce.



Mother****er turned the Garras-9 Maximum Security Prison into a Mad Max-Style wasteland and took most of the Wreckers down!! 'Nuff Said!!

Honorable Mention Number 8: Slipstream from Transformers: Animated.



Female Starscream Clone who is obviously the embodiment of Starscream's Intellect. 'Nuff Said.

And finally....

Number 1: Bludgeon and Thunderwing from The Transformers: Generation One!





Yeah, I know. It's a 2 for 1, but I couldn't help myself. It's kinda hard to top being the APOCHALYPES PERSONIFIED and the a Legendary Nightmare Samurai Warrior who unleashed the aforementioned APOCHALYPES PERSONIFIED a second time!! And that was just in the IDW Continuity. I would go on, but I can only sum it all up in very few words for these guys. "OH MY GOD!! THEY'RE SO GOD! DAMN! COOL!!" Seriously, these guys are so FREAKING Metal!!!

Thank you all for taking the time to read this. It literally took me 7 hours to write. Enjoy.

Yeah.... It's been a while since i wrote a journal. First one in over a month. Been busy. Still trying to find time for drawing, trying to get my priorities straight, spend some time with my buddies when I can, find a second job, get more money to feed my obsessions. Y'know.... life. How 'bout ya'lls?








Also, Bayformers 5 is gonna suck. You know it, I know it, everybody knows it. Remember, world: You have the right to demand a refund. Don't leave your hard-earned money in the hands of a fucking meth-addict. (He looks like one, so that's what I tend to call him.) 

Or, heed the words of wisdom by the Nostalgia Critic from 3 years ago.



Or heed his words now.



Just think this to yourself: "Do I really want to waste my money on this piece of shit?"

Yup! As of today, I'm 25 Years Old! And I have the coolest co-workers ever! They gave me a Birthday Sunday & did sang the Birthday song we sing to our customers at work. And I got ahold of the Complete Beavis & Butt-Head Collection! What a great day! And thank you to all of my DA friends for wishing me a Happy Birthday. Thank you all so much. Also, a few days back, I saw the new Power Rangers film with my Bro, Tom & his li'l bro, Mickey. That film turned out a hell of a lot better than I expected! I dare say it was great. It owned Power Rangers/Super Sentai corny weirdness like there was no tomorrow.

Y'know.... Life can sometimes suck, but every so often, or more often than not, you gotta count your blessings & smile. And I am truly blessed to have a wonderful family & great friends. Thank you all so much.

Cue the music!



Now that that's outta the way, cue the OTHER music!

Being the first in a long line of Decepticon Combiner teams, the Constructicons are the builders, mechanics, & engineers for Megatron's forces. Each member of the team serves a purpose on a project and they all work well together.... In more ways than one. "CONSTRUCTICONS! MERGE FOR THE KILL!!"



"PREPARE FOR EXTERMINATION!!" "NOTHING SURVIVES THE DEVASTATOR!! NOTHING!!"

He's big, he's mean, he's purple and green. He is The Menacing Devastator!! The original Decepticon Combiner. He's as iconic as they come & Transformers wouldn't be as memorable without him.

Honorable Mention Number 3: Trypticon from The Transformers: Generation One.



It's only fitting that the Decepticon's first Titan would be a gigantic rampaging reptilian who can level cities in one day. And Trypticon is certainly a force to be reckoned with. He's basically the Transformer equivalent of Godzilla. But with this list I was going for my personal favorites who don't really seem so obvious.

Honorable Mention Number 4: Cyclonus & Scourge from The Transformers: Generation One.





Galvatron's Lieutenants and Heralds of Unicron, These two made a big name for themselves in the Marvel UK stories & Season 3 of the original cartoon. And while their portrayal & alliance may vary from continuity to continuity, one thing never changes: Cyclonus is a proud warrior, while Scourge is a great tracker.

Honorable Mention Number 5: Runamuck & Runabout from The Transformers: Generation One.



True, the Battlecharger Twins might not be the best at doing.... Well, anything except crashing Autobots. But they are memorable. Hell, the vandalized the Statue of Liberty. That's something I won't forget.

Honorable Mention Number 6: Black Shadow from Transformers: Victory.



In all honesty, I could see this guy being a servant of Galvatron. His wicked design alone is enough to make me wish we'd see more of him in the Comics. But, sadly.... Tarn Happened.

Honorable Mention Number 7: Overlord from Transformers: Super-God Masterforce.



Mother****er turned the Garras-9 Maximum Security Prison into a Mad Max-Style wasteland and took most of the Wreckers down!! 'Nuff Said!!

Honorable Mention Number 8: Slipstream from Transformers: Animated.



Female Starscream Clone who is obviously the embodiment of Starscream's Intellect. 'Nuff Said.

And finally....

Number 1: Bludgeon and Thunderwing from The Transformers: Generation One!





Yeah, I know. It's a 2 for 1, but I couldn't help myself. It's kinda hard to top being the APOCHALYPES PERSONIFIED and the a Legendary Nightmare Samurai Warrior who unleashed the aforementioned APOCHALYPES PERSONIFIED a second time!! And that was just in the IDW Continuity. I would go on, but I can only sum it all up in very few words for these guys. "OH MY GOD!! THEY'RE SO GOD! DAMN! COOL!!" Seriously, these guys are so FREAKING Metal!!!

Thank you all for taking the time to read this. It literally took me 7 hours to write. Enjoy.



Decepticons! TRANSFORM AND RISE UP!!!
