Streak (Bluestreak) and Stepper (Ricochet) according to the TFC Stepper reissue's bio. Oh, and apparently Fusion, too. Too bad this has never been shown in any acutal fiction so far. I'd love to see a writer find a way to explain how a hothead like Ricochet, who can barely stand the company of other Autobots, gets along well with a chatterbox like Bluestreak.

I never really got the impression that Blitzwing and Lugnut were FRIENDS, exactly. Certainly, if they were friends it was a supremely one-sided thing, since Blitzwing seemed to actually disdain Lugnut.

Also, why Ratchet and Wheeljack?

Again -- I don't think, "Paired together regularly" really equates "Friends". The Transformers are in armies. If there's no other evidence, I'd assume a working relationship, rather than an actual friendship.

--Andrew S.
(There's a bunch of 'stated' friends, where you don't actually SEE them interacting as friends. For example, apparently Sky Lynx and Wheeljack were really good friends, according to the US Marvel comics.)

Yeah, the defensive stance Cheetor takes when Rattrap demands which one voted for Dinobot, always told me that he was the one who did it. As well as Rhinox's exasperation at the second vote for Dinobot, like he hadn't expected it.

And.......why Bluestreak and Ironhide?


If they were paired together (I never noticed it) I'd suggest it was because of their voice actors. Casey Casem and Peter Cullen, respectively. Those two would have been employed for nearly every episode -- they also played Teletraan 1 and Optimus Prime. So getting them to play their secondary characters would be cheaper than getting in other voice actors (though there were also rules about how much they COULD double up, which makes it all the more complex).

I would also question the credibility of "they're on screen at the same time a lot" as evidence of them having a specific friendship.

--Andrew S.


It stood out to me, as something I hadn't noticed before.

They weren't just on-screen together, there were specifically interacting with each other, covering each other. Like buddy cops, I guess. 'I got your back'.

You know, I always loved the relationship between Kup and Hot Rod in TFTM. Really, not much fiction has looked into it aside from that, or at least most of it deals with their post-Rodimus Prime friendship.

I just liked the dynamic of this arrogant young hothead and this grumpy old man who, despite everything, have this respect for each other and have each other's backs. It helps that Hot Rod seems to be a good guy underneath his attitude (rescuing Kup from the squid without even hesitating) and Kup seemingly having a soft side to him. For me, their camaraderie and friendly bickering really carried the whole film.

Edit: The fact that, by human standards, theirs is already an unlikely cross-generational friendship helped, too.

Ironhide and Optimus in IDW, not too sure about G1. Ironhide was around a lot, but Cullen.

I always felt like G1 Mirage and Hound were good friends. Dunno why, they just seemed like they hung together a lot in MTMTE I guess.

Perhaps G1 cartoon Tracks and Blaster.

Soundwave and Megatron often feel like they are close in the G1 cartoon and at times in IDW.

Perhaps Energon Cliffjumper and Downshift....or was that Downshift and Cliffjumper? On that note, Demolisher and Snowcat shared a friendship of stupidity.

Bumblebee and Bulkhead in Animated, and of course Blitzwing and Lugnut. An argument could be there for Ratchet and Omega.

In Prime, we've got Bulk and Jackie.

Kup and Hot Rod are a great pair. Makes me wish we got more old fogey tfs.

Their relationship was quite well featured in some UK comics as well. My favourite is the Annual Story "Ark Duty" which has Hot Rod - as usual - rushing into things headlong and making a big mess of carefully laid plans; when he sees the Stunticons attacking Kup. In truth, this was a set-up by Magnus and Kup to make the Cons think they stole the real plans to Autobot City, while Kup was only carrying a fake. In the end, we have a hilarious scene of the two beaten up Bots help each other hobble back to the Ark, while Kup notes Hot Rod's interference actually turned up good since it further convinced Motormaster that the plans were real. When Hot Rod notes that next time, he will rather not jump into things and stay in the Ark, Kup replies with a knowing "Somehow, Hot Rod... I doubt it." icon-hotrod.gif
Their first meeting in "Kup's Story" is also memorable, as it is Hot Rod reminding Kup of his younger self that snaps him out of his suicidal mood.

QUOTE(Boltax @ Feb 21 2012, 07:15 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
One of my all-time favourite TF stories is Marvel issue #23, "Decepticon Graffiti", and it's almost entirely because of the strength of the characters and their relationships. Runamuck and Runabout are one of the only sets of Decepticons that we're shown, in all of G1, having a genuine, hearfelt friendship. these two guys LOVe each other's company, and it's utterly delightful.

I think nearly every other Decepticon 'friendship' is either just a pairing, or something inferred. Even Cyclonus and Scourge aren't really FRIENDS so much as partners... they certainly don't express much affection for each other.

But Runamuck and Runabout delight in going on a massive road trip together, despite the fact that they're horribly destructive monsters. It's really endearing.

--Andrew S.
(And now I've made myself really regret that I'm not getting those Fanclub toys...)


Hear hear! It's one of the reasons I love those two so much. Even in later appareances in Furman's stories (Earthforce and IDW) they seem to work together smoothly and genuinely enjoy each other's company... even if what they do together is causing massive collateral damage while making bad jokes, like in "Perchance to Dream #1". Also, it was touching to see how distressed Runamuck became when the Reapers killed Runabout, throwing caution to the wind to avenge his friend's death.

I'd add Dreadwind and Darkwing to that list as well, though. Even though they mostly just mope and complain about things, when they work together it shows they do care about each other. The best show of this was in IDW's Stormbringer where Darkwing pretty much holds back Dreadwind from directly attacking Thunderwing and rather the two of them make a half-arsed effort only, thus surviving the encounter. 'Out to Lunch' is also a favourite of mine, since it shows the rare occasion how some Decepticons have a 'day off'. icon-hotrod.gif

And last but not least, I'd mention the Mayhem Squad's Needlenose and Spinister - although it is a strained friendship, after Needlenose goes overboard with his cautions due to his (well-founded) fears of Carnivac's revenge. But prior to that, Spinister - a professional soldier - makes a deliberate flop to give Needlenose a chance to avoid execution for his cowardice, because he sees potential in him. Their relationship was not really that well featured in the US comics when they re-appeared as Thunderwing's cronies, but even there, Spinister was the guy who did not take kindly to their boss endangering the lives of his teammates due to his obsession for the Matrix.

I am working on a fanfic myself about the (IDW version) of the Monster Pretenders aka 'Monstructor Six' - considering their predicament of being not only bonded together due to the combining process, but having been locked away in a dimensional pocket for millions of years, I kinda see those six as dysfunctional family, who - although united by chance rather then choice - have grown to a close-knit group of friends due to necessity. It helps that I always found their (G1) bios very interesting, especially Slog's and Icepicks, as they are not your average bloodthirsty Decepticons.

Another unexplored pair are the Con and Bot Clones - their MTMTE bios make them both sound as an interesting bunch.

Oh, and BWII - the Seacons are quite protective of each other, when the Jointrons kidnap Scylla (to have Bighorn "rescue" her and gain her affections), the other Seacons are quick to come to her aid instead. And everyone on the team is quite tolerant of ol' Coelagon, despite the old geezer often falling asleep inbetween sentences. icon-hotrod.gif

Last but not least, I think the only Decepticon Megatron has clearly shown to value more then just a loyal subject is Ravage. In both "The Enemy Within" and "Two Megatrons" this is made quite apparent (where the real Megatron hesitates about killing Ravage who attacked him).

beat you to that one man lol,

most of the pair ups in g1 seem in retrospect to be half to do with who was in the booth doing what characters the scripts called for.

got two guys in there doing the a story... well lets have the b story be about other guys they voice.
