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.

he did, I was delighted both by his beating and his fighting skills

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. :/
GeminiGirl83 Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2012
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.
