* ''ComicBook/TheTransformersCombinerWars'': It's Starscream's time to step up as the main villain. His plan to unite the lost colonies of Cybertron under his rule, and his implementation of the dangerous powerful combiners sets the plot in motion.
* ''ComicBook/TheTransformersDrift'': In the original comic it's Braid, leader of the Slavers and biggest threat to the Circle of Light. In Empire of Stone: It's Gigatron, a Decepticon warlord who intends to raise the stone army and reignite the flame of Decepticon Conquest after Megatron had disbanded the group.

to:

* ''ComicBook/TheTransformers'' went through several Big Bads, due to the frequent changes in leadership of the Decepticons. Megatron, the most iconic of the Decepticon leaders, was only in command for less than a quarter of the book's original run! Shockwave, Ratbat, and Scorponok are the others who led the Earth-bound Decepticons, Straxus, Thunderwing, and Bludgeon were among the prominent Cybertron-based leaders, and Galvatron was mostly only a Big Bad in the UK comics, whereas in the US series he was more of a WildCard (and explicitly a [[AlternateTimeline different version of Galvatron]] from the UK one anyway, coming from a BadFuture where [[BiggerBad Unicron]] wasn't destroyed).
** Megatron did return to his proper Big Bad status in ''ComicBook/TransformersGeneration2'', though it was shared with [[TheRival Jhiaxus]] and his Cybertronian Empire, which itself was subordinate to the [[BiggerBad Liege Maximo]].
** ''Regeneration One'' had a separate Big Bad for each of its four arcs: Megatron, Scorponok, Bludgeon, and Jhiaxus. All of which were surpassed by the BiggerBad, [[spoiler: the [[EldritchAbomination Dark Matrix entity]]]].
* The Creator/IDWPublishing ''[[Franchise/TransformersGeneration1 Transformers]]'' universe also re-established Megatron as the Big Bad up through ''[[ComicBook/TheTransformersAllHailMegatron All Hail Megatron]]''. Though he would return with a few more schemes before ''Dark Cybertron'', Megatron's role as a Big Bad was diminished after AHM due to changing politics on Cybertron as well as others launching their own schemes.
** ''ComicBook/TheTransformersDarkCybertron'': Shockwave tries to collapse all of reality so that Cybertron and its inhabitants are the only thing in existence.

*** ''ComicBook/SecretWars'': The Beyonder is the one who set up the events of the story, and by far the most powerful being in it, but his morality is of the decidedly [[BlueAndOrangeMorality blue and orange]] flavor and he really just wants to learn as much as he can about our universe. Doctor Doom is a more traditional BigBad, particularly once he steals the Beyonder's power and becomes near-omnipotent.

*** ''Comicbook/{{Inferno}}'': N'astirh and Sinister

to:

*** ''Comicbook/{{Inferno}}'': ''Inferno'' has a heck of a BigBadEnsemble. [[BigRedDevil S'ym]] is the one who takes over [[ComicBook/IllyanaRasputin Magik's]] hell dimension of Limbo and conceives of the demonic invasion of Earth. He coerces his rival [[EvilSorcerer N'astirh]] into organizing the actual logistics of the invasion, but N'astirh quickly dispenses with his act of subservience and Sinisteractually has bigger plans to merge Limbo with Earth and is [[TheChessmaster manipulating practically all of the major players to accomplish this]]. The [[LadyOfBlackMagic Goblin Queen]], aka [[{{Comicbook/Cyclops}} Cyclops']] estranged wife Madelyne Pryor, has the power necessary to perform N'astirh's ritual, and while she knows the demon is using her for his own ends she's become so [[WomanScorned full of hate]] she's willing to [[OffingTheOffspring kill her own son]] and [[PutThemAllOutOfMyMisery doom the world]] anyway. When N'astirh's (apparently) killed, she [[DragonAscendant takes over the]] BigBad position and attempts to go through with the EvilPlan anyways. There's also [[EvilutionaryBiologist Mr. Sinister]], whose [[GreaterScopeVillain creation and manipualtion of Madelyne sent her down the path of madness]] and who's waiting in the wings for a chance to snatch ComicBook/JeanGrey and an infant [[{{Comicbook/Cable}} Nathan Summers]].
