"Truly the universe favors those who persist." (Here's a hint. He really is bad comedy.)
Gender: Male
Type: Deranged Decepticon
The Imbecilic Side of Starscream
Species: Decepticon
Portrayed by: Charlie Adler
Status: Deceased
Media of origin: Transformers
First appearance: Transformers

Starscream is a major Decepticon that occurred in the first three films. He was Megatron's 2nd-in-command until he died and was succeeded by Barricade.

He is voiced by Charlie Adler.

Why He Is A Complete Imbecile

  1. Like Megatron, he has a stale and flat personality and a complete weakling.
  2. The Cybertronian language on his jet mode (F-22 Raptor) in Revenge of the Fallen was never explained.
  3. His death by Sam Witwicky was unsatisfactory.
  4. He was flanderized from being the silly comic relief of the Decepticons to being a huge murdering psychopathic idiot.
  5. His design is indiscernible to the point that he is considered a scrappy. Not to mention his body can look like a Dorito at times.
  6. Like most of his incarnations, he was a huge punching bag, making him a Butt-Monkey, but with the charm sucked.
  7. Even though he is tolerable in the video game adaptation of Transformers: Dark of The Moon, he was the fault for giving away the Decepticon-controlled Siberian Soviet facility to both Autobot and NEST forces after disobeying an order to destroy all the MechTech by capturing one piece of MechTech technology with a tracking system implanted in it.
  8. For some reason, he didn't help or protect Megatron from Sentinel Prime.
  9. He somehow can't seem to actually yank Sam off him when his eye was damaged and caught on a grappling hook and even got his other eye caught on a boomstick which led to his wasted and pathetic death.
  10. The plot-hole about him fighting alongside the Germans in World War I makes no sense.
  11. In other words, what he has done for his antics and wasted potential was nothing more than in G1 Galvatron's words to describe them, bad comedy.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. In the first Transformers movie, he had a more commander-worthy personality and was more competent than he is in the later two movies.
    • This trait of his is also used in the video game adaptations of Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen as he is much more tolerable than how he is in the movie adaptation.
  2. Like Megatron, he has some of the best and better moments in the video game adaptation of Transformers: Dark of The Moon which he was able to take out many Autobots including Stratosphere.
  3. Charlie Adler does a good job voicing him.
  4. It's heavily implied he was the F-22 who attacked Megatron, which is awesome.
  5. He did spawn a lot of good toys based on him.
  6. His buzzsaw is pretty cool.
