Ironhide: tough, tough stare, first in battle, classic cowboy, gritty. Optimus' oldest friend. Decepticons are: Megatron: survival of the fittest, social darwinism, less idealistic view of humanity. Sees himself as advanced, sees humans as lower. Starscream: seems faithful but plotting, "we will see a lot of that dynamic," explains why he does not push it, waits for his opportunity. Brawl: eager for battle, jumps in. From non-G1 character, experimental, but will be in sequels. First disguised non-flyer. Bonecrusher: closest to constructicon but not giving away mode. Hates other cons except Megatron. Doesn't want friends. Barricade: scout, hunter, lures into trap. Scorponok: closest to Beast Wars, fitted to environment. Frenzy: "had some evolution for us," started off as Soundwave but had contradictions and changed to stay truer to G1. Smaller, able to infiltrate. Stealth spy, can hide anywhere. Blackout: comes in, takes out fighting ability, sends EMP, first-tier attack, transporter, biggest vehicle.
