** You realize that as far as fanon is concerned these two have been screwing since G1? Heck next to Megs/Scream and Megs/Prime, they're the third most popular yaoi couple! Even in fanfiction with mechs primarily hooking up with fembots these two ALWAYS play the token gay beta couple.

* About the Airazor/Blackarachnia thing, Rattrap probably already knew that Tigatron and Airazor had a thing with each other and respected that. As for Blackarachnia, it's hard to show attraction to someone who's shot at you and your friends several times.
** Wow, someone put Airazor/Blackarachnia together and had nothing to do with HoYay. Well the fembots don't escape either despite TheSmurfettePrinciple. Elita One's all female camp away from the male bots? The two that lacked boyfriends and kept to themselves in the corner. AR and BA's cat fight in Inferno's debate episode.

* Transformers Ongoing had some light Ho Yay for Optimus and Megatron. At the end of the Revenge of the Decepticons story arc Megatron turns himself in while cradling Optimus. Then, during the Chaos Theory arc there's an exchange between them that's even lampshaded in universe by Rodimus as being quite "cozy."

to:

* IDW's Transformers Ongoing had some light Ho comics actually acknowledge the Foe Yay for between Optimus and Megatron. At Megatron and portray it in a more serious and cerebral light. In the past Megatron was Optimus Prime's inspiration and friend, with the two eventually working together to bring down a corrupt senate and Prime's KnightTemplar predecessor. In the present Optimus admits that he honestly doesn't understand how he feels about Megatron; he can't describe it as hate, but it's definitely not love. The general implication is that Optimus is extremely insecure and disturbed by the Foe Yay, while Megatron notices it and plays it up to toy with Optimus' head. It only gets slashier and creepier from there:
** The
end of the Revenge of the Decepticons one story arc has Megatron turns turn himself in while cradling Optimus. Then, during the an unconscious Optimus.
** The
Chaos Theory arc focuses on a one-on-one debate/conversation between the two. It veers wildly between heated argument, nostalgic reminiscing, and heartfelt attempts to make peace. It culminates in Optimus trying to torture Megatron with an electrical chair after Megs deliberately goaded him into doing so by making light of all the innocent people he's killed. The whole thing comes off like a sadomasochistic nightmare and it's clear that Megatron knows ''exactly'' how uncomfortable Optimus is and exploits that for all it's worth.
** At one point in the above arc, Rodimus angrily accuses Optimus of getting a little ''too'' cozy during his interrogation of Megatron. Prime immediately loses his shit and screams at the rest of High Command to get the hell out of the room. Once they do he collapses into a chair and buries his face in his hands shamefully.
** When Megatron has a HeelRealization and becomes good again, Optimus is the first to accept it and pretty much the only person who believes the change is genuine. Afterwards the mind game dynamic gets unsettlingly inverted; when Megatron asks to help the Lost Light on its quest, Optimus agrees but only on a single condition. Forcing Megatron to publicly denounce the Decepticon cause and all the people who looked up to him. The sequence reads like Optimus turning out to be NotSoAboveItAll and taking the moment to mentally torment Megatron in the same way Megs had done to him.
** At one point
there's an exchange a time traveling conversation between them that's even lampshaded in universe by Rodimus as being quite "cozy." Optimus when he was just Orion Pax and Megatron from the present. Orion is extremely supportive and friendly to Megatron and generally comes off like he's the guy's biggest fan.



* The IDW comics have a Post-HeelFaceTurn Megatron have some Ho Yay with Ultra Magnus of all people, thanks to their shared love of discipline and rules. Hilariously, there's a scene where Magnus's disembodied armor (being controlled by scraplets) tries to hug Megatron; Megs mistakenly thinks it's the ''real'' Magnus coming onto him and tries to let him down gently. [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments His attempt accidentally gets broadcast over the ship intercom]] and when Rodimus hears it the only thing he says is "I knew it."



* The latest [[Comicbook/TheTransformersIDW IDW series]] ''More Than Meets the Eye'' gives us a couple more possibilities. Rewind and Chromedome are "best friends", with Rewind constantly running after Chromedome like a devoted puppydog, defending him to others, and even cradling his head in his lap when Chromedome is injured at one point. Then there's Skids and Swerve, where Swerve tries his best to convince Skids they'd make a great team but is initially rebuffed... only for Skids to change his mind after Swerve shows a bit of his soul behind the motormouth chatter, and say, "'Skids and Swerve.' That ''does'' sound pretty cool."
** In Issue 12, we learn that Rewind lists Chromedome as his "Conjunx Endura." It means exactly what it sounds like.
** WordOfGod below. So... confirmed or not?
--> [[WordOfGod James Roberts]]: "That’s the beauty of writing about alien civilizations: sometimes, when it comes to relationships, there is no precise human equivalent. That said, I’ve made it clear through the stories – I hope – that Chromedome and Rewind each regard the other as the most important person in their life."
** [[spoiler:"One more thing—one last thing—because I don't say it enough: I love you." - The end of Rewinds [[DeadManWriting final]] [[TearJerker message]] to Chromedome. Combined with James Roberts answers on Twitter after, it's 100% confirmed.]]
** Even beyond those two, ''[[ComicBook/TheTransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye More than Meets the Eye]]'' has plenty of HoYay. Chromedome and Prowl's past relationship was full of it, and Prowl and Rewind are visibly jealous of each other in the present. There's also Rodimus and Drift taking a HandsOnApproach to learning swordplay and their relationship in general, and ''Remain in Light'' gives us Cyclonus's reaction to [[spoiler:Tailgate being terminally ill]] and [[spoiler:Pharma]] going full-blown {{Yandere}} on Ratchet. It's not really a surprise that ''More Than Meets the Eye'''s FandomNickname is "Gay Robots in Space."

to:

* The latest [[Comicbook/TheTransformersIDW IDW series]] ''More Than Meets comics are very notable in this regard because they're the Eye'' gives us first Transformers medium to openly feature gay and bisexual characters/relationships, as well as acknowledge some of the gender oddities inherent in a couple species of living robots. These comics made it canon that gender is widely seen as irrelevant by most Transformers and that relationships between same-sex couples aren't seen as any different than heterosexual ones. In other words, in this continuity you're much more possibilities. likely to see all those Ho Yay relationships become official. Aside from their take on Megatron's pairings described above there's also:
*
Rewind and Chromedome are Chromedome, who were initially portrayed as "best friends", with Rewind constantly running after Chromedome like a devoted puppydog, defending him to others, and even cradling his head in his lap when Chromedome is injured at one point. Then there's When they were confirmed in a later issue to not only be in a relationship but to also be ''married'', people were only surprised because they didn't think IDW would actually go through with it.
* There's also
Skids and with ''multiple people''. First with Swerve, where Swerve tries his best to convince Skids they'd make a great team but is initially rebuffed... only for Skids to change his mind after Swerve shows a bit of his soul behind the motormouth chatter, and say, "'Skids and Swerve.' That ''does'' sound pretty cool."
** In Issue 12, we learn that Rewind lists Chromedome as his "Conjunx Endura.
" It means exactly what it sounds like.

That said, I’ve made it clear the series. Then he goes through the stories – I hope – that Chromedome and Rewind each regard the other as the most important person in their life."
** [[spoiler:"One more thing—one last thing—because I don't say it enough: I love you." - The end of Rewinds [[DeadManWriting final]] [[TearJerker message]] to Chromedome. Combined
same thing with James Roberts answers Rung in season 2. And that's on Twitter after, it's 100% confirmed.]]

* ''Transformers Regeneration One'' has a subplot involving Shockwave and Starscream making their way to Cybertron in the Ark. During this time the two practically become a duo, but it's nothing particularly homoerotic... but than near the finale of the series the normally stoic and emotionless Shockwave not only risks his life to save an unconscious Starscream, but as he's carrying Starscream to safety [[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove he openly wonders if]] [[ThatCameOutWrong he's experiencing emotions]]. This is ''not'' helped by the fact that the art depicts him lifting Starscream in the same manner that a swashbuckling hero would pick up a damsel in an old school adventure story.
* Knockout and Breakdown are offically together in the latest IDW comic.

*
The above-mentioned Knockout and Breakdown are offically together in this continuity, which borders on AscendedFanon.
* IDW Prowl has this with ''a lot'' of people to some degree or another due to his manipulative personality. Other than his thing with Chromedome, his strained friendship with Optimus Prime starts veering this territory more and more as Prowl starts SlowlySlippingIntoEvil. When
the latest IDW comic.two end up fighting it out because of Prowl's actions, their argument reads like a horrifically bad and abusive break up.
* This version of Starscream tends to get very touchy feely with others, [[DepravedBisexual both male and female]] and WordOfGod explicitly states that the writers' interpretation of him was as a sexually aggressive boss who likes to mess with his employees. He also becomes friends with Bumblebee after the war, which mainly consists of Bee trying to get Screamer to be a good person in scenes that feel loaded with BeligerantSexualTension.
* A new one is Blast-Off and Onslaught, with the former being undyingly loyal to the latter and coming off like he's trying desperately to get his sempai's attention. [[spoiler: Surprisingly this turns out to be canon; Starscream realizes that Blast-Off fell in love with Onslaught and that Onslaught is oblivious to how Blast-Off really feels. [[DeconstructedTrope He proceeds to use that information to manipulate Blast-Off]], using memory rewriting technology to make Onslaught notice Blast-Off's feelings in exchange for Blast-Off convincing the other Combaticons to work for Starscream.]]
* Windblade and her bodyguard Chromia have a lot of Les Yay going on. Some of it is just the result of Chromia having to spend so long around Windblade because of her job. However things like them sparring together and Chromia being willing to sacrifice her own reputation and life just to help out Windblade, make it clear things between them go beyond merely working together. Notably, Chromia ends up having some obvious sexual tension with Ironhide and Windblade has a lot of FoeYay with Starscream. Can anyone else sense a LoveTriangle?
* Needlenose and Horri-Bull spend a great deal of time in each other's company and after Horri-Bull dies, Needlenose spends most of his time talking about how much he misses him. [[spoiler: Ultimately confirmed. Needlenose admits that he actually loved Horri-Bull, but the latter was apparently unaware of his true feelings, thinking they were just friends.]]
