He finally settles with the Autobots on Gigantion when Snarl and Leobraker make him question his motives.
* HotBlooded
* JerkassFacade
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy

->Voiced by: Creator/KazunariTanaka (JP), Creator/MarkOliver (EN)

* AxeCrazy: Downplayed compared to Megatron, who is completely nuts, but he's basically the new version of Cyclonus.
* ButtMonkey: Having [[BadBoss the worst boss ever]] doesn't help. He gets lit on fire by Scourge ''twice''. ([[AmusingInjuries "Would somebody ]]''[[AmusingInjuries please ]]''[[AmusingInjuries put me out?"]]) At the end, after Ransack, Crumplezone, and [[EvilIsSexy Thunderblast]] go back on their {{Heel Face Turn}}s and sneak off in homemade rocket, poor Thundercracker gets shanghaied aboard when goes to investigate. The Hasbro version of his toy's mold was a major-league example of quality-control failure. (PRIMUS DAMNIT HASBRO!)

* DarkActionGirl
* FemBot

[[folder: Other beings]]

!! Soundwave
->Voiced by: Taketora (JP), Robert O. Smith (EN)

Sideways' new partner in crime, out to [[spoiler:avenge their dead world]].

* BewareTheSillyOnes: Despite his odd way of speaking, Soundwave is actually the more serious-minded of the two, and it's implied several times that he's putting the act on.
* BigBadDuumvirate: With Sideways as part of the BigBadEnsemble, though the pair serves as a secondary BigBad.
* MasterOfDisguise: He can mimic anybody's voice, which combined with his illusion ability means that he can torment people further.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: It's often implied that he's putting the whole DJ thing on as an act to throw people off.
* PopCulturedBadass: Speaks like an eighties-era DJ.
* RememberTheNewGuy: [[spoiler:He was apparently a servant of Unicron according to the comics, but we never saw him do this in the show]].
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: With Sideways.
* TragicVillain: [[spoiler:The reason that he pledged loyalty to Unicron was so he could avenge his dead world]].
* UndyingLoyalty: Oddly enough, this is possibly the only version of Soundwave ''[[AvertedTrope not]]'' [[AvertedTrope to show this towards Megatron]]. His home planet is another story.
* VillainousFriendship: With Sideways.

->Voiced by: Creator/TesshoGenda (JP), Michael Donovan (EN)

The God of Cybertronians.

* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: As a god, you'd be worried if this trope wasn't in place.
* GodIsGood: He's a benevolent force in the universe, for both humans and Cybertronians.
* HandicappedBadass: Believe it or not, his full power is actually restricted for most of the series as part of his soul is essentially disconnected from his body.
* SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale: Mercifully, it's not as bad as with Unicron in Armada, as most combatants seeking to fight him have to size up a bit.
* TheWorfEffect: Galvatron stuns him at one point with a blast of dark energy, although to be fair Galvatron has a MacGuffin or four boosting his power to ridiculous levels.
