Airachnid and Insecticon by GeminiGirl83 Airachnid and Insecticon by GeminiGirl83
Airachnid and an Insecticon from Transformers Prime, episode: Crossfire. A lot of people are wishing for her death due to her actions in this episode. I still like her, but that doesn't mean I'm happy with what she did, but to me, it was self-defense. Either she killed or she was going to be killed. I blame Megatron for what happened. He made some seriously IDIOTIC choices in this episode.

If you haven't seen the episode, I'm not going into further detail due to spoilers. Comments will probably have spoilers too. You were warned.

Feel free to use stamp.

Other stamps.

Noooo! Everybody's hating on Megs! I must rectify the situation!
1. Megs derped really hard when he sent Starscream and Breakdown to kill Airachnid, because Airachnid totally outmatches both of them. However, Breakdown DID sorta fuck up their element of surprise which may or may not have helped them in the end. It CERTAINLY hindered them, though.
2. Megatron is the coolest fuckin character in the whole series, according to me lol he does sometimes make some weird decisions (which I wish I could help him with), but I honestly think it's the studios trying to even him out. Otherwise he's a fucking unstoppable war machine that ruins everything in his path (1). They had to give him a little case of the Derpins to make it fair.

Citation 1: If anyone thinks they can make a case against Megatron being an unstoppable war machine, make a case. Lol I'll show you why you're wrong and I'll even do it in German. (Restricted to the TFP canon only.)

Hmmm, I dislike her for being a traitor but yeah. It was a self-defence. We're decepticons
Kill or be killed

I will admit that it is interesting how Airachnid is able to control the insecticons. But after what she did to Breakdown I hate her all the more. I'm sad and sometimes still crying over his death especially since there is no way he can ever come back.

However he'll remain alive in our minds, art and stories so that is something in a sense. And I also hope that we'll see Knockout's reaction to losing his partner. Sadness, anger, something to show that Knockout cares. Frankly it would be awesome if he wanted to get revenge but we'll have to see what happens.

And you make a really good point. The way that Megatron tried to have Airachnid killed was a dumb decision. He knows how dangerous she is so he never should have ordered Dreadwing and Breakdown to try and kill her outside where she would have plenty of room to run and set up her web traps. Doing it in an enclose space like on the ship would have been much better. Not to mention she probably wouldn't have suspecting anything right away.

Guess we'll see what will happen to her on a later date. With her new army she's going to be tough to go after now. But I can't wait for the day where she finally pays for what she's done.

I'm torn between loving her and hating her

hate her for what she did to Screamer and Breakdown

love her for her moments with Arcee and just being a strong female character (oh and that part with the Insecticon WAS pretty nifty)

finally, now that you point it out, you're right:
Megs did some pretty poor choices
still thought the gladiator fight was awesome, thought =w=

That scene with Megatron and the Insecticon was awesome. I can't believe Megatron got beaten up so bad. XD He deserved it though for his poor choices.

I didn't like her much before but I really don't now. I feel like Breakdown's death was a complete waste considering the potential they had given him as a character. We never got to explore his and Knockout's past or even his history with Bulkhead. It's not just that a character I really loved is gone, it's that it felt useless. His death could have had more purpose than that. Breakdown only died to show off how deadly Airachnid is and to set up the plot for the next episode with MECH. :/

That's true. I wanted to see more of his relationship with Knock Out and why he and Bulkhead had such a grudge against each other. I wonder if we'll get any type of reaction from Knock Out or if the writers will just have him move on without a care.

Breakdown's death was met with little reaction in the episode it happened in, so I doubt it. :/ We didn't even see Knockout.

She dismembered him alive and his remains were found by MECH, likely to be reused for spare parts. :/

You have right. I like Airachnid and Breakdown is dead like a idiot. I'm sad for his death but the fact is this. I don't accuse her action because is self-defense. and anyway, she's done well.
is in her nature be a cruel person

I totally agree with you and the fact that she was defending herself and i love breakdown and am dissapointed that they killed him. He had so much potential as a character as ilikeanimeandfluff said. Airachnid is a cruel decpticon and Breakdown should have listened to Dreadwing instead but thats what gave him character as GeminiGirl83 stated. But this is what makes it interesting.

Thank you!

BD had potential chance to change and maybe become an Autobot... But his temper led him to death. So it's not to blame Airachnid, but only him ;_; .
People compares Airachnid with Blackarachnia but these two are DIFFERENT, and the comparison is highly stupid and pointless. For me, Airachnid is better than Blackarachnia because she's a true evil decepticon. I like BA but I prefer Airachnid because is better structured to being a poisonous spider.

I'm gonna miss you BD.

I'm glad to find someone who agrees. She's a villain. She's going to do some really nasty things, but her decision to kill Breakdown was a good move for her. One less enemy out to kill her. I like Breakdown, but it was also a stupid move for him to go after her alone. He fought her before. He should have known better. Guess she bruised his ego pretty bad to make him act so reckless. XD I wonder how Knock Out is going to react though...if the writers decide to have him show some emotion over the loss of his partner.

You're wrelcome!

and I wonder if people would hate again Airachnid, if it were a male rather than female. would hate this character, or say "that's cool"?
I like Airachnid because she's really indipendent woman and strengh in battle. And in this series the femmes is really strong and charismatic.
more people says hate her so much, but for me is ridicolous hate a fiction character. If you insult Airachnid in public place, you insult the job of the author. If you don't like is ok, but please don't call her a whore -.-

many people want to see KO avenge the death of his partner. I'm not sure who wants to ruin his paint job, but we'll see what happens.

she's always been a sadistic, amoral, sociopathic and psychopathic killer, but I seriously doubt they're going to leave Bludgeon dead for long, Mech is probably going to rebuild him.

I hope that's the case. I want to see him again. I really liked him, and I wanted to see more of his strained relationship with Bulkhead and what their dispute was.

Well still, the creators of TFP made this to happen. I don't see why they have to kill awesome characters to get more fans. Couldn't they just make an episode that gets us all giddy o something?

When I watched him order Dreadwing to take out Airachnid, I was like, "Are you serious? What the f--- is wrong with you?!" He knows she's dangerous, and yet he only sends out two bots to deal with...out in the open...where she has plenty of room to run and set up traps. He should have taken care of her on the ship. He could have easily ambushed her. She didn't seem to be aware at the time that he was planning to kill her.

Yes, exactly. All he would have needed to do is ask her to meet him on the bridge and then blast her in the spark when she was too close to dodge. WTF, Megs? A friend of mine calls him a 'big, dumb shark' and I'm starting to agree...
