10 Movie Characters Everyone Forgot To Mourn
One of the truly odd things about the movie and television business is that every once in a while, viewers are told to actually celebrate in the death of someone. Usually, these are villains who have spent their entire time on screen trying to bring death and destruction to everyone and everything. Still, it always seems a bit odd when we pump our fist in the air because a guy finally met a rather violent end. Even stranger than rooting for someone to be killed, is the fact that there are some characters we’re supposed to simply ignore when they die. These people might be peripheral or they might be part of the main cast, but after they “fade away” the film doesn’t even talk about them anymore.

This rather old transformer had been hiding out on Earth after the war over Cybertron was lost by the Autobots. In Transformers 2 he comes out of retirement to fight the Decepticons, one more time, and dies when he gives over his spark to save Optimus Prime and is summarily forgotten by all those who served with him.
