You missed the best one - Prowl 2.

* Side Burn
* Skid-Z!
* Mirage GT
* Sky-Byte. Cos ya know... umm... shark... bytes of data... in the sky?
* Wind Sheer. No that's not a typo, that's actually how they spelt it.
* Nightcruz. No, not "cruise," 'cruz.' Totally different meaning!
* Slapper (which in British English slang refers to a woman of loose morals)
* Movor (is that pronounced "moo-vor" or "mow-vor"?)
* Mega-Octane (although in hindsight this is way better than Tankor)
* Smokejumper - there's nothing inherently wrong with this name, but it seems completely irrelevant to the toy/character. A smokejumper is a firefighter who parachutes into bushfires. I doubt that they do it from supersonic jet fighters though.

RiD wasn't the best series for new names. Although Armourhide and Darkscream were pretty good.

lol Cos the one thing that Prowl desperately needed was a sequel.
Although I do like how they've retconned Prowl 2 to explain why Prowl appears in The Headmasters.
