Reason why GRIMLOCK is so loved
1. Grimlock is literally a one bot army. Grim is like wolverine and hulk combined. He was the full fledged barbaric.
2. Grimlock was also one of the very few autobots that Megatron feared. The others were metroplex and omega supreme. Which if you wanna real they where fuck huge.
3. While optimus was incredibly badass he had a kind heart (spark) which Megatron would exploit often. Now I love grimlock but he was stupid which Megatron did exploit but after that failed Megatron never got the chance ever again. Yes grimlock was dumb but he had good memory of those who pissed him off. So after any fail attempt at his life grimlock would seek revenge….brutal revenge!
4. Besides the like of devastator and bruticus (which had to combine 1st) not many con’s would step to grimlock. And thats just it grimlock lack fear. I mean he would fight unicron if he felt like it.
5. as if grimlock wasn’t bad enough he has 4 more comrades that’s are just as crazy and brutal as him!
6. Grimlock was also loved because of his choice of weapons not many transformers had close range weapons. The few that did only used them as last means. But this nigga grimlock would fight 100 con’s with just his sword. and possibly the main reason why everyone loves grimlock is HE’S A FUCK FIRE BREATHING T-REX!!!! he was one of the few g1 transformers that had a beast mode. He was also the few transformers that when not in robot mode was harder to fight. Hell most cons prefer to fight grim as a robot the he’s dreaded dino mode.
