Some TF names with double meanings that may have passed folk by:
'Rollbar' means a metal bar running up the sides and across the top of a vehicle, especially one used in motor sport, strengthening its frame and protecting the occupants if the vehicle overturns. But the Throttlebot Rollbar also sells hot and cold savouries - anything in a bun, actually - out of the back of his van mode.
'Tailgate' means to drive too closely behind another vehicle. According to Tailgate's TFU entry, "a powerful ferrocobalt magnet under his hood allows him to be pulled by and within a few feet of any vehicle he chooses to follow, reducing his own fuel expenditure to nearly zero. His range has virtually no limit when he travels like this." What is less well known among humans is the media scandal that erupted on Cybertron over the revelations about his collection of rare alien animal tails, a scandal now referred to simply as 'Tailgate'.
'Ransack' means to go through a place stealing things and causing damage. But there was also that time this Insecticon wasn't looking where he was going and ran into a sack.

People think Krok got his name ('Croc') because his Action Master partner is Gatoraider the robot alligator. But his name pre-dates his partnership with Gatoraider and actually refers to his love for Korean rock music.
