Anyone else make up their own new TF characters?

Postby starry* *night » Thu Oct 20, 2011 1:57 am

I read through all the threads and there was one seeking unused names for fanmade story
so I got to hear about some original characters.

I think I have 18 characters I made up.
I think I made unused names and I was trying to do the G1 style
I know what Type\Makes most of them are but I need to absorb myself a bit in Transformer mechanics and do fully finished drawings of them.

Anybody else got some?

My favorite idea was Cybertron's moons being Guardians for the planet,
good-guy affiliated characters but the knowledge of them had been lost.

Let's see...
I can't pick one so I'll tell a few
Name: Dirt Boss

Allegiance: Decepticon

Team: Combaticons

History: Dirt Boss was the very first to enlist when the call went out, and after he proved loyal, deadly, and determined he was granted his own team, The Combaticons, a team of high class soldiers. He has proved himself in many battles, and was granted the rank of General

Personality: loyal, determined, and deadly in battle

Weapon of choice: arm mounted Guass cannon

Alt Mode: M12G1 Light Anti-Armor Vehicle - "Warthog Guass" (from Halo)

Extra: None

Name: Volt

Allegiance: none

Planet: No permanent home, travels alot.

Species: Transformer (sort of)

Team: none

History: Volt was a warrior on Calingo through their own great war, but was kidnapped by the rising Decepticons. Cyrotek had an experiment planned that he would use against the Autobots. The ultimate weapon, he called it. Unfortunatly, the memory-wiping process was unsuccessful, and Volt attacked his "creators" afterwards. The expirement allowed him to take ANY alt mode in his data-banks and gave him telekenesis, but left him without form. Volt has now sworn revenge on ALL Cybertronians

Personality: Keeps to himself, out for revenge

Weapon of choice: telekinesis, Pure energy blasts from his hands (weapon from before experiment), alt mode weapons

Alt Mode: any in his data-banks

Extra: Robot mode is that of BM Megatron from the beginning, except without wires.

Volt sounds like fun

I don't RPG so I don't have properly developed backstories on mine
just concepts and appearances.

So 2 favorites or have you got more ?

I have a few fanmades myself. :grin:

Here's my favorite:

Name: Sirius

Size: Large Deluxe

Allegiance: Autobot

Planet: Cybertron

Species: Transformer

History: Sirius has always been fascinated by space and what was out there. Early on he studied the starts through a makeshift telescope, until he got the job as an astronomer. He often sent hours alone watching the planets, comets, etc.
Then the war came, he signed up for the Autobots but he did also not leave his job as an astronomer. Instead, it was something he did then he wasn't out on a mission.
He has fought bravely in many battles, never wanting to give up. There hasn't been few battles he has come out of there he has been injured, sometimes even critically.
Recently he has been fighting the Scrapmetals alongside the other Autobots.

Personality: Brave, quiet, tend to stay for himself then not in combat. He often studies the stars, taking his job as an astronomer seriously. In combat he is a force to be reckoned with. Fast and agile.

Weapon of choice: Energon swords (coming out of his palms like Optimus Prime in "Revenge Of The Fallen"), and twin Energon rifles (hidden under the hood then in alt. mode).

Alt Mode: Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG (the type of car Soundwave was in DOTM)

Extra: I am not sure on the name, but if it works, I'll keep it. His robot mode is like Jazz, just with a head like G1 Ratchet.


Name: Discord

Size: Large Deluxe

Allegiance: Chaos

Planet: Cybertron

Species: Transformer

History: Then Sirius was hired by Unicron, he became Discord. Discord's work for Unicron is to be a spy and manipulate the situations to keep the war going. Discord was also ordered to be in disguise, so he still pretend to be Sirius then not with his own.
Discord has been a Herald of Unicron for years now, causing lots of chaos. He sometimes find it hard to keep his disguise as both Autobots and Decepticons are irritating him.
Recently he fought in the Battle of Iacon as Sirius, and got furious then a potential Herald, Sweeper, was killed. He wanted to attack Death Diver for what he did, but the Decepticon left before he could do it. So he targeted the annoying Screwloose, but was interrupted by a command from Unicron telling him to leave the area.
Then Screwloose was taunting him, he almost disobeyed that order, but his fear from what punishment he would get if he did, preventing him from attacking Screwloose. He was happy for that Stoneface and Flank dealt with Screwloose, laughing over the fact they didn't knew they helped an enemy.
Then Discord came to the Makeshift Base, it didn't take long before he was under fire again. He was though reluctant to fire on the Scrapzombies and Scrapmetals, knowing they were creations of his master. But he also needed to keep his disguise, and he heard a reassuring word from Unicron that he could fire.
Then as the Scrapmetals were ordered to return to Unicron, Discord too heard from his master that he needed to come as well, so he used the chaos in the camp to silently leave the area and join up with his allies.

Personality: Vicious and lethal. He is also manipulating and sneaky, often working from the shadows, highly aggressive.
He only fears his master; Unicron.

Weapon of choice: His claws and spikes + his Unicronian powers.

Alt Mode: Nighthawk

Extra: He looks similar to his Sirius disguise, but his colors are purple and grey intervened with each-other. And he has slightly curved spikes on his arms and legs. He also have flamey red eyes instead of the blue Sirius has. Discord also has claws and jagged teeth. And Discord is more compact than Sirius.
Discord can use his Unicronian powers to change his appearance at will, with the same powers he can shoot black lightnings, heal quickly and manipulate the surroundings the way you see Fallen does it in ROTF.

Note; Sirius and Discord is the same guy, just thought I should put up it like this so you saw Discord's two sides (Discord being his true form). ;)

PS.: Discord is my favorite fanmade character I play, but my all-time favorite character that I play is not fanmade, and that's Unicron. ;)

I guess I'll launch mine
much shorter on info

if any of the names are previously used please let me know ....?

33+ mostly new names and SHORT Descriptions:


Autizon: a giant BASE character I very much want him in the G1 style

Chargeout: probably a fast sporty car type

Crank: there was nothing more to this than him being an old veteran friend of Kup's

Flatcap: A very solid-built strong squar-ish everywhere Bulldozer

Heavy-Press: a very big serious truck transformer

Re-Pave: this may have been my brother's name idea?

Rims: This is a small red mini-car --; may be used

Sparkstrip: a very fast small car

Spiral: A rather wild light grey helicopter

Static: a jittery mini con blue and grey

Steelback: a huge ship

Stratum: an orange deep digger vehicle

Windtracer: independent good-guy

and I had a full design appearance for a black convoy hauler truck but no name


Diode: Shockwaves mini-con a little heavy black mini-con with a silver cap on his head -- no that's mixing continuities but I did it anyway-
totally uninterested in the decepticon cause

Ditchdragger: the name might say it all -- I'm not keen on a character like this but I thought of the name and it seemed to fit

Downdraft: an INDEPENDENT that shows up on the Decepticon side only from time to time,
very dark colored and sharp and eerie

Grillgrinder: big black and silver wreck of a nasty decepticon

Hardwire: black grey and red boxy shadowy with decepticon leanings

Shaft: white and orange villian helicopter - unreliable

Shale: I believe he was a dark colored jet but I wrote no notes

Tangent: a hard fighting pretty smart and effective helicopter

Waterblade: a slightly oversized boat with double swords attached to the back of both wrists he's a very skilled fighter but not really mean, he probably switched sides or left Cybertron after a very short time as a decepticon

Catchclaw was a re-name for someone

Historical Transformers



Storms Wing

Girls all Autobots

Skim: just a dedicated autobot that focuses on work\missions she's a white space shuttle with double wing structure on her roof - pretty calm attitude

Amp: a small red and white motorcycle quick and effective and often teamed with skim on earth surface missions

Aeroleene: red with white accents angular flight vehicle

Rhythm: white trimmed black futuristic sports car -semi independent

Sumbeam: mainly a reservist soft bright yellow car with a happy attitude

Swirl: a creamsicle orange 30s style hovercar

Prix: slim energetic pink and white

Aerodrome: independent but totally autobot helpful chiefly rose colored armored flight character she's serious and battle focused

Cherry: a slick red hover car

I picked the name Highlight as a RE-NAME for the Omnicon --because the character is too darn different to be 'Arcee'

But I still want to hear everybody else's ! too
