OK so maybe calling him delusional is a bit harsh but really, how else would you describe a robot only slightly bigger than the smallest (and weakest) Autobot Bumblebee (I’m referring of course to the original Bumblebee….pre movie/camaro days) who would rush straight up to Megatron on his own and threaten to beat him down.
|Prime! go get Starscream! Leave Megatron to ME!|
In another instance, during a scouting/spying mission, against direct orders from Prime he fancied himself an expert marksman and decided that he could take down Megatron with a single head shot from quite a distance. And despite protests from his co-spy Hound, he went through with it, took the shot and…..missed, effectively blowing their cover and getting Hound injured as they ran away pursued by the enemy. Yeah, from the start he was established as a bot who doesn’t really make the best decisions….much to the detriment of his team mates.

|Can you smeeeeeeellllll.....Stunt Casting???|
Even later on, the Autobots attempt to rescue Cliffy who they think is still alive only to find his still “living” zombiefied top half. Realizing that his rescue is a lost cause they evacuate the Decepticon base which is basically blowing up all around them, leaving the half zombie Cliffjumper to FINALLY be blown to bits! Whew! Talk about kicking a guy when he’s down…REALLY down!
