Silverbolt's track record is remarkably inconsistent- he's the first one to incapacitate [[TheJuggernaut Rampage]] and on several occasions defeated Tarantulas, Quickstrike, and even Megatron, but is also the only one to get taken down by [[ButtMonkey Waspinator]] more often than the reverse. It seems likely than, that his ability to fight is based on how righteous his cause is (Like a [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons Paladin]]), meaning his skills are greatest when facing the likes of [[AxCrazy Rampage]], [[ImAHumanitarian Tarantulas]], [[BloodKnight Quickstrike]], or [[TheSociopath Megatron]], but very weak when fighting a MinionWithAnFInEvil like Waspinator.

Waspinator.

[[WMG: Had he been written back into the show, Scorponok would have become Scavenger]]
In Aftermath, when the quantum surge hits, both Scorponok and Terrorsaur were glowing when they fell into the lava (It's easy to miss because more attention was given to the latter), indicating that both were upgraded to Transmetal as they died. Ostensibly this was to give the creators an excuse to bring the characters back if they ever needed to. A Transmetal Terrorsaur toy was released, but the closest thing Scorponok had to a transmetal form was the happy meal toy, which would not have been added to the show as there would be no point in marketing a product that would only be available for a month. So how do you bring back a character as a transmetal when no transmetal form was created? Then it hit me, what is the one Transmetal toy released that did NOT share its name with an existing character? Scavenger. Yes, the toy was originally meant to be the transmetal form of Inferno, but it doesn't take much of a leap to repurpose Scavenger as a Transmetal form for Scorponok. Both have weaponized hands, similar transformation sequences, there are aesthetic features on Scavenger's body that could very easily have been reformatted from parts of Scorponok (such as the ridges on both of their shins). Plus, the Scavenger toy's head halves can be positioned in robot mode to functionally resemble Scorponok's claws, and it would go a long way toward explaining how they got out of the ground. The names even sound similar enough that the writers could easily explain the change in one throwaway line of dialogue.

* The evidence is in favor of Cheetor voting for Dinobot (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-2Mmc8W58og). Remember that this episode was not long after Dinobot was the only one to treat Cheetor like a respectable adult and Cheetor never did figure out that it was blatant manipulation. And Rhinox does clap Rattrap on the shoulder to congratulate his victory. He likely insists the votes remain secret out of respect for proper democracy, although he knows darn well who voted for Dinobot by simple process of elimination.
* Rhinox only uses force to get Dinobot into line, though, as that's what Dinobot has been socialized to respond to.

** It's also possible that Dinobot I could have Spark-hopped; jumping from Rampage's body to the body that shared his Spark; which is his clone. By putting his own spark alongside the half that Dinobot II had, Dinobot II could have ''become'' Dinobot I, and this would explain why Dinobot II attacked Megatron and chose to die in the explosion of the ''DarkSyde''; Dinobot I ''chose'' death to let Dinobot II regain his honor and die a hero.
