Hmm, this is tough. You say he poses as a loyal Autobot, yet any name I think of gives away his nature as a bad guy. And it can't be an existing name, so that makes this more tricky.


He uses another name. ;)
Okay, then that certainly helps. Because now I've got something that works with two names.

Autobot name: Ripcord (never used for TF before; he could have a whip or cable weapon) ;)

Real name: Discord (while this name has been used before, it was only used once and only for a barely-known Mini-Con from the Armada PS2 game). The word means "chaos", "disorder", "disharmony", "harshness", "dissonance", etc.

Wow! I really like this one. :grin:

Totally agree on that. :smile:

There are several good suggestions here, so the choice has been hard for me to pick. Though I do believe I'll go for Discord as the Herald name. :grin:

Cool. :mrgreen:

Though, to be honest, these other names sound a bit too "dark" or "evil" for his Autobot side, as they kinda imply his true villainous nature rather than hide it. Just sayin'. ;)

True.
That's why he has another name as his Autobot name, meaning a friendly name which doesn't hint at his true nature. ;)

The reason I chose "Ripcord" was because:
  • It's never been used before for a TF
  • It bears a slight relation to "Discord", but not explicitly enough to make it obvious (the "-cord" part)
  • It sounds like a faction-neutral name (meaning it could fit for either an Autobot or Decepticon)
  • It's a Hasbro-owned name, so it sounds like it could be a real TF name

Make no mistake, I do like the suggestion for the Autobot name as well. :smile:
