** Starscream makes his first play for power in the first episode (showing potential signs of it in ''the first five minutes''), and succeeded when Megatron was injured in the [[WesternAnimation/TransformersTheMovie 1986 animated movie]]. Before that, StatusQuoIsGod, so he'd fail [[OncePerEpisode Every. Single. Episode.]] If Megatron so much as ''sneezes'', he'll start shouting "Megatron has fallen!" [[KarmaHoudini And Megatron would never punish him much for it.]] (Except in the movie, when he did.) [[http://www.cracked.com/article_16954_5-reasons-megatron-should-have-fired-starscream-years-ago.html Cracked's "5 Reasons Megatron Should have Fired Starscream Years Ago"]] list provides five examples of Starscream's ambitious behavior as well as ineptitude in a single episode (the first ever episode no less!).
