Hot Rod is Bumblebee's brother-in-arms and is a character who first appeared in Transformers 5: The Last Knight.

Why He Sucks

  1. Despite transforming into an Italian car (Lamborghini Centenario), he has a French accent for some unknown reason, even though he doesn't like it.
    • At least Drift explained why he had a Japanese accent in Transformers 4: Age of Extinction despite turning into a Bugatti Veyron that time.
  2. He has nothing what the original Hot Rod offered; self-confidence, having character development, and being a true protector who wouldn't mean harm.
  3. In fact, why would Hot Rod be called "Hot Rod" if he doesn't at least have flames? Red isn't enough for him to be called Hot Rod considering he is mostly black, and he was more of a scarlet color in the film.
  4. Hot Rod's design is kinda bad, he has an ugly head, and he doesn't have a lot of vehicle parts on him. This is of course, your typical course with anything after Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. He is actually useful, when Cade and Vivian were falling from the broken cybertronian temple, he used his time gun to save Cade and Vivian from certain death
  2. "I stop the time!"
