We see plenty of posts about Prime and Beast Wars but we're all forgetting the third part of the trio of best Transformers shows...
Transformers Animated, honestly I rate it as the best TF show, marginally above Beast Wars. However, I respect the opinions of those that rate BW and Prime above it. It's also arguably the most influential show since Beast Wars, introducing concepts like the Magnus Hammer, bringing back Ratchet, Arcee and Bumblebee as main characters, introducing our proper Bulkhead, being the final "Super Robot" Transformers show, and more. But, I'm not here to discuss why it's amazing, I'm here to discuss what of such an awesome, diverse and interesting cast I would want to see in this game.
One of the best characters in the show was Prowl. Well developing, interesting, with a complex backstory and motivation. To see him in this game would be an absolute dream, especially when paired with fellow Cyber Ninja of the Autobot Elite Guard - Jazz. I'd imagine these two would have some good synergy bonuses, one as a warrior and one as a scout. Their playstyles and moveset matching their show counterparts, with some cool Special Attacks too. I'd even say a Yoketron / Lockdown would be awesome too, having the TFA Cyber Ninjas come full circle, and with us getting the first (and best) incarnation of Lockdown.
The friendship of the two is really highlighted during Season 3, especially in it's finale. With Jazz electing to stay at Earth, the two do plenty of Cyber Ninja training, it's this training that could be reflected really well in the game, with a SP3 of Processor over Matter, SP2 of Circuit-Su and a SP1 using Prowl's jet boosters.
The two hold a lot of potential, and ever since the cancellation of Season 4, Animated hasn't really got much attention. I'd think adding some of the characters into F2F would be a good send-off to the series, especially with two as beloved as the Cyber Ninjas. If we've got Drift and Bludgeon, these dudes would fit right in, and perhaps have synergies too.
