to:

* Scourge. These days he's typically called Nemesis Prime. Immensely loved as one of the few evil clones of Optimus to have an actual personality.



* Scourge, the leader of the Jungle Planet. Another Dinobot-like character with a three-headed dragon beast mode.

* Scourge, the MightMakesRight leader of the Jungle Planet. Another Dinobot-like character with Somewhat like Dinobot above, though he changes into a three-headed dragon beast mode.dragon.

* Galvatron in the Marvel UK run of the Generation 1 comic. An outright [[TheJuggernaut nigh unstoppable]] {{Badass}} whose [[SavedByTheFans popularity]] effectively gave him JokerImmunity up until the Time War storyline, where he was finally KilledOffForReal.

** The entire [[EvilIsCool Decepticon Justice Division]] gets this treatment due to their {{Badass}} designs and frequent CreepyAwesome moments, but among their number, Tarn, Kaon, and Vos are particularly popular.

* Dreadwing. His NobleDemon personality and sense of honor remind people of the aforementioned Dinobot. Not to mention that [[{{Badass}} he can hold his own in a fight]] with [[WorthyOpponent Optimus Prime]].

* Many, ''many'' characters in ''ComicBook/TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'' are adored by the fandom, to the point where it's basically a bunch of Ensemble Darkhorses crammed together on a ship.

** Nautica isn't as important as the other two fembots introduced in Dark Cybertron, as they go onto be the leads in [[ComicBook/TransformersWindblade Windblade]] and get toys while she's put in MTMTE's ensemble cast, and remains toyless. Yet she remains the most popular for her {{Adorkable}}, endearing personality, and for easily blending in with the comedy dynamics of her series.

* Most of the characters from ''ComicBook/TransformersLastStandOfTheWreckers'' became this, but the biggest example is [[TheKnightsWhoSaySquee Ironfist]]. He even got an [[WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated TFA incarnation]] complete with a toy!

* Erector. Only ever had one toy, and never appeared in fiction save for a Japanese magazine story, but he recently experienced such a [[{{Pun}] rise]] in popularity that the fans voted him into the final nominees for the ''Transformers: Hall of Fame'', competing with such insanely popular and famous characters as Grimlock, Jazz, Shockwave and Waspinator. Hasbro even wrote a completely new character bio for him, seemingly having embraced his sudden importance, but handled him as more than a simple dick joke. Considering his reputation started ''because'' of his name, this can fully well be seen as a SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome for the character.

** ChewToy, and didn't take over the show. He was slated to be killed off at the start of the second season, but due to the unlucky Predacon's popularity among fans, he was spared. Waspinator continued as a supporting character, played for increasingly painful and humiliating comic relief, and his personality continued to develop. He also became just the third character outside of G1 to get an alternate version into another continuity (Wasp in ''[[WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated Animated]]'').

** Thunderwing is also this for having some NobleDemon traits. Oh, and he also managed to hijack [[MacGuffin the Creation Matrix]]. This popularity also landed him a top spot in one of the newest [[VideoGame/TransformersPrimeTheGame transformer games]], and a new toy.

** Surprisingly, ''Drift'' of all 'bots [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap has become this]]. It's kind of amazing that a former CreatorsPet has become popular among many of his haters due to having a good writer behind him. It doesn't hurt that he's become a hell of a DeadpanSnarker. Having had a spiritual reawakening that makes him "offensively upbeat" and [[TakeThatScrappy that Ratchet absolutely hates]] gives him some extra points too.

*** It helps that every following appearance is either [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments hilarious, [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome awesome]], or both.

* To a lesser degree there's also Glenn from the first film, due to Creator/AnthonyAnderson's hilarious performance.

* Ravage is one of the biggest examples of this. He was originally just a joke in ''Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}}'' about how a MirrorUniverse Ravage would be a MotorMouth {{Keet}} instead of a silent assassin. Then his creator started up a {{Twitter}} feed in which he was portrayed as the living incarnation of WebOriginal/LOLCats. Eventually, the little guy became so popular, he was made canon and received a toy at Botcon 2010!
