    Starscream he got owned by Rainbow Dash in death battle. Was his even ate his spark. G1 screamer was no match for a tiny Pegasus that can fracture light at full speed.

    Starscream has been a favorite of mine since the original show. His character as a whole just epitomizes the meaning of being a Decepticon. He's too strong to let him join the other side but 150% untrustworthy.

    The line "Even the minicons have abandoned me now" about made me lose my mind laughing

  • 我喜欢耶稣InfinityTemplar

    IDW did the best version of starscream.
    He's dangerous not because he is the strongest or the fastest, but because you know he's gonna fight dirty.
    He is also a very effective manipulating schemer, making his power grabs and survival believable.

    Wait, correct me if i'm wrong but I thought Armada was rushed and butchered for Cartoon Network with a terrible English dub as well. When I was a kid watching the Spanish version of Armada I remember it being pretty good. And Starscream did not sound so awful, in fact his voice sounded quite good

    • cabrejos96

    I'd like to see a story about a more noble Starscream like in Armada defecting from the Deceptercons, taking over a faction of the Deceptercons, and eventually becoming the king of a reunified Cybertron. Also just picture Starscream Prime

    Bay Starscream actually did have the desire to take leadership from Megatron. That's why he's running the show in his stead at the beginning of ROTF. He immediately instates himself as leader right after Megs goes down in TF1

    What? No mention of Transformers: Cybertron Starscream? He was the only one that well and truly succeeded in pulling one over on Megatron! He WON. He got the sweet-ass crown and wore it for EPISODES! He fought their God! And got his ass kicked! It was great!
    More love for Transformers Cybertron!

    Megatron kept him around because he believed only the strongest should rule. The problem with that if you killed everyone that challenge you , he wouldn't have and army.

    My favorite depiction of Starscream is in the Robots In Disguise cartoon. He somewhat steers away from the stereotypical version of his character. Which is basically a mustache twirling cowardly schemer who runs away(I.E General Grievous in ROTS and the Clone Wars 2008 cartoon series).

    Starscream is the Rowdy Roddy Piper of the Transformers. You love to hate him. Or just love him. He is the very definition of a loose canon, which in itself makes him an interesting character.

    You're a woman deeply involved with a character who is barely above a 'red shirt' and is a hopelessly a tragic villain. I must admit I'm intrigued.

    You never asked the biggest question, why when transforming into a tiny gun - does Megatron nearly always trust Starscream to fire him? And having done that, why didn't Starscream just jump on him?

  • The Gibus

    Megatron keeps Starscream around because, apart from the explaination in TFP, needs a reminder that even in the face of victory, he should watch his own back, or he may never see victory again

    I love the armada starscream. He wanta to become the new leaderr of the decepticons but honourably by surpassing megatron . Meaning he is more of the next in line to lead instead of him wanting to take it.
    Also he becomes a autobot at the end for a short time because he became friends with a girl.
    Had the most character development in that show

    I hate the bay films but 2 points about their starscream
    1) i think they figured they wouldnt have to explain who starscream was, especially since he commands the decepticons to mobilise, Even my ex managed to figure out he was high ranking and asked me about it
    Dosnt make it ....not idiotic ...but i guess in their defence they figured the film would A) mostly appeal to TF fans (and since starscream is in most TF related stuff, and is among the ranks of Bee, Prime and Megs to us) it wouldnt matter, And B) Since he comes in close to the end, most casuals wouldnt care enough ...hes just another baddie for the goodies to shoot at
    I mean playing devils advocate here, .....Its not like they spend a lot of time telling us about ANY of them to be honest, they dont name Blackout, Barricade OR Brawl till the mobilise part and in truth i wouldnt have known the minesweeper was supposed to be Brawl if they hadnt ...he is usually a tank
    2) the failed me yet again dosnt really come from no where nor is it just a simple homage in my opinion ...I mean i think of it like this
    If i was Megatron, And i just woke up and asked my second in command where the important plot maguffin is, And he tells me that someone OTHER than him has "taken it" (implying .....i knew it was here and didnt get here in time despite having a MILLENIA to do so)
    Than i would be telling him something along the basic lines of "you had ONE job" and "ROYALLY get your shit together" as well

    personally my favorite starscream is the one from transformers: cybertron. he seemed powerful, clever, and actually sneaky. among other thing he actually beat most of the autobots, stole a portion of primus' spark that he never lost, and went toe to toe with megatron and didn't lose. he became one of the show's main antagonists and was probably one of if not THE most successful starscreams.

    Enjoyed this episode. As a 70s and a 80s kid, I LOOOOVE the TransFormers. Especially StarScream. I don't like TransFormers Animated. Saw one episode of it (In Living Color reference) HATED IT!!!! You're right, everybody has chins. The Michael Bay movies, the first 3 movies were all right, the next two, didn't see The Last Knight but I will say it, HATED IT!!! I did liked the Transformers Prime StarScream, but the Generation 1 StarScream will always have a place in my heart for childhood and nostalgic moments

    Rewatching this, paused at 7:02. So, how does it make sense that he's a time traveling ghost when he gets revived? Clearly he time traveled when he was STILL a ghost, and then time traveled again to make it back for his resurrection. :P

    The amount of personality Starscream conveyed in the first two seasons of The Transformers cartoon (and the movie) is why he's still my favorite character in the franchise.

    I like the Trope Starscream is named after, and I feel like how to do it well is anticipated in The Blackcoats (Les Habits Nois) novels of the 1860s. The Colonel keeps underboses like Lecoq who he knows wants to overthrow him around because their competent, and because you "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer" and because on some level he wouldn't respect them as fellow villains if they didn't.
