    Bumblebee is the current second-in-command of the Autobots as well as the kid-appeal character. Similar to Optimus Prime, he has been badly butchered.

    Why He Shouldn't Speak Through Radio

    1. Michael Bay went literal with the definition of the name "Bumblebee", thus painting him under the colors of an actual bumblebee. However, that's not the creepy thing, the creepy thing is that his face was directly based off of an actual bumblebee.
    2. Him having a gas cap and talking with a radio voice is very annoying.
    3. In fact, Bumblebee barely talks except in Transformers, Transformers: Age of Extinction, and Transformers: The Last Knight.
    4. Bumblebee's relationship with Sam Witwicky is very cringe-worthy and one-sided.
    5. He ruined most of the Witwickys' home while shooting at the Appliancebots in the procress.
    6. He can be rather immature and destructive.
    7. He got Shane in trouble with the KSI when he kicked Stinger in pure jealousy.
    8. The part when he somehow survives in pieces and rebuilt himself was just awkward.
    9. The plot-hole of the scene in Transformers: The Last Knight that Bumblebee participated in World War II makes no sense.
    10. He just somehow talks again after Optimus stabs him in the throat which should've killed him instead of fixing his voice box.
    11. In the 2007 film, he urinates oil(?) on Seymour Simmons, creating an unfortunate implication between Cybertronians and male human anatomy.

    Good Qualities

    1. He bought the popularity of Bumblebee back and influenced his next incarnations well.
    2. Despite barely even speaking according to BQ #3, he was able to speak even more in the video game adaptations of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
    3. Bumblebee is not as badly as Optimus Prime.
    4. He is more badass then most of his adaptions where he often helps with the evact team, in this universe he went toe-to-toe with the likes of Lockdown and even the brainwashed Optimus Prime.
      1. This trait carried onto the reboot film, Bumblebee (2018),
    5. Much like Optimus Prime, he was somewhat tolerable in Transformers (2007).
    6. He massively redeemed himself in his own origin/spin-off film, Bumblebee (2018), and due to the success of the film, this allowed the character's reputation to improve.
    7. He did spawn a lot of good toys based on him.


    • Hot Shot was originally going to be cast in Transformers: Animated rather than Bumblebee, but because this particular incarnation increased the popularity of Bumblebee, the latter was casted rather than Hot Shot.
