** The aforementioned [[EgomaniacHunter Airachnid]] is a self-styled "ex-Decepticon" who spent her time in the Great War capturing, torturing, and slowly killing any Autobots she could find. For certain victims, like Arcee, she'd go out of her way to find people they cared for and murder them before their eyes as part of her fun. After the war left Cybertron, she struck out solo to pursue a new hobby: hunting endangered (and soon to be extinct) species for sport and collecting grisly "trophies" of her kills. Should she find an attractive species that ''isn't'' endangered, she'll ensure that they are by the time she's done. After coming to Earth, she's decided to make humans her new toys, as Jack found out the hard way. Airachnid's not under orders or attempting any form of grand scheme, [[ForTheEvulz she just finds it fun]]. There's also the utterly brutal way she [[spoiler:kills Breakdown, tearing him into pieces]]. She's an unholy blend of Tarantulas, Beast Wars [[SerialKiller Rampage]], and [[PsychoForHire Lockdown]] pressed into a spider's shape and let loose on the universe.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Almost any of the non-leader 'bots and 'cons seem to have their fair share of popularity. Exceptions appear to be Airachnid, Darksteel and Sky Lynx. The latter two aren't unpopular per say, they just didn't have much time for characterisation.

** Ratchet quickly became popular thanks to the popularity of his [[Creator/JeffreyCombs voice actor]], hilarity of his RunningGag, and characterization as a loyal, but very flawed old veteran.
** Wheeljack got some popularity for being one of the most badass characters in the series and eventually got fleshed out as a roguish, but loyal cavalier. He ended up joining the main cast in the final season.
** Knock Out almost immediately became a fan favorite for his entertaining, slightly camp behavior, slick and sexy design, and quirks. It's likely why he [[spoiler: gets a HeelFaceTurn in the GrandFinale]].
** Breakdown also became popular for his imposing design, respectful rivalry with Bulkhead, and several shades of HiddenDepths ranging from BenevolentBoss to the Vehicons to genuine BashBrothers with Knock Out. [[spoiler: His anticlimactic death]] early into Season 2 didn't sit well with many people.
** Dreadwing due to his cool design, loving relationship with his twin brother Skyquake, his code of honor that ultimately leads him to have a [[spoiler: RedemptionEqualsDeath]], and being the only Decepticon aside from Megatron to pose a genuine threat to Optimus. Like Breakdown, [[spoiler: his sudden death and getting immediately forgotten]] was highly unpopular when it happened.



* ReplacementScrappy: Some fans of [[WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated Transformers: Animated]] just ''will not let go'' and refuse to give this show a chance.

** Starscream rejoining Megatron at the end of Season Two and [[spoiler: replacing Dreadwing, who was killed and immediately forgotten, as TheDragon]] was highly polarizing. While some were interested to see Megatron and Starscream's dynamic going forward, others were bewildered that Megatron would [[spoiler:spare Starscream over Dreadwing, a far more loyal and overall competent soldier.]]

** Cliffjumper, all the way. Being introduced as a fun, cool and thrill-loving figther, he suddenly gets slaughtered in the most brutal and gut-wrenching way you've ever seen an Autobot die before.

** Raf, partly as a result of him becoming out of being DemotedToExtra. While Jack got to become an honorary Prime, assist Smokescreen in assimilating to Earth, and grow as a leader and Miko got to become a Wrecker and master the Apex Armor, Raf was relegated to only being called on to solve computer problems. This despite the tantalizing mystery of how he understood Bumblebee, his rivalry with Soundwave, and that he was one of the few people Ratchet was willing to open up to. Admittedly, the writers said they didn't know what to do with him.
