Optimus Prime vs Megatron: A look at their relationship | Wulf Space
[Megatron] was once brothers-in-arms with Optimus and a student of Sentinel Prime, appointed to be Cybertron's Protector and commander of. We found 15 secrets about Megatron's most trusted Decepticon, Soundwave, that Optimus Prime's forces started from said oppressive system, and have . smaller than him his equals, considering his relationship with his Minicons. .

Although it was only hinted at, I enjoyed the fraternal relationship given to Optimus Prime and Megatron in the TFilms (which had never been.
My response to that would be, so what? Humans are at least as contemptuous to other forms of life as Megatron is. We humans routinely stomp out ant nests, poison wasp hives, step on spiders, bomb cockroaches, evict bats, and run over squirrels without barely a second thought, and that's just in our domestic existence. In the broader sense of the world humans are responsible for mass deforestation and ecological rape for the sake of providing power, food and shelter for its population.
And why shouldn't we? Those "lesser creatures" don't have the same degree of sentience as we humans have and certainly aren't capable of understanding our needs or why we do what we do. In that regard, humans are no different from the Decepticons.
And that's exactly the kind of contempt that Megatron views humans and most other life forms in the universe. The extension of the battle to Earth and the involvement of the humans was just another resource allocation to Megatron. In his eyes, the humans — a species which he generally regarded with the same contempt as we humans regard cockroackes — allied themselves with the power-hungry socially-suppressive Autobot regime.
So, from Megatron's perspective, the Autobots landed on an energy-rich planet that the local vermin were willing to share with them in order to maintain their oppressive rule. Megatron would no sooner enter into talks with the human race than we would open negotiations with cockroaches in our homes.
What do we humans do when we move into a house or apartment that has cockroaches in it? We exterminate for our betterment. And so does Megatron. So he's not being "evil" there either. He's just got a different perspective which the humans lack, and if you were to ask him, the humans are incapable of even understanding the existence of that perspective.
Optimus Prime is heroic to be sure, but what are his motives?
Optimus and Megatron’s relationship
If peace were truly his primary goal then he would have entered into negotiations with Megatron a LONG time ago, with the first concession being the dissolution of the Autobot regime.
He didn't do that.
If he were to tap into the wisdom of the Matrix he certainly would have seen the corruption of the Autobots, right? Unless the Matrix were already similarly corrupted by Autobot sparks. Mind you, this isn't to say that the Decepticons were saints.
Many of the Decepticons were psychotic. Shockwave was particularly nasty. But Megatron, like all good military leaders, made good use out of the materials at hand. Who cares if they were psychotic if they helped solve the problem? And when their usefulness has come to an end and they have nothing left to offer the new society, they're discarded. We humans do the same thing; look at our prison system. So, there you have it: You can watch cartoons back at base with Bumblebee.
Just cover yourself in fake blood and jump around screaming. Is it cookie time? Can we stop for pie? Instead, your mindless agenda resulted in the disabling of my ship, and the delay of my plans! I know how to set your plans back on course!
To my schoolwork, to my mom, my job. If he hasn't already. Megatron may not be trying to leave Earth, but to bring through his conquering army.
The Decepticons are the good guys. Autobots are the evil, misguided ones. : FanTheories
But the only place Megatron could possibly recruit that many fallen warriors Darkness Rising, Part Five[ edit ] Ratchet: Optimus, if you leave me stranded on a planet teeming with humans, I will never forgive you.
Optimus Prime never disappoints. Surely, Lord Megatron, the Autobots are up to something. I chose my side. Where is my ship?! We would never make it, Lord Megatron!
Don't be a fool! Take flight and retreat!!
Decepticons, it is with deep sorrow that I note for the log Megatron's spark has been extinguished Without a means of leaving this world, we Autobots take strength in the bonds we have forged with our three young friends - true warriors.
If not in body, then in spirit. My name is Optimus Prime, and I send this message. Though we did not choose to be of Earth, it would seem that we are here to stay.
If you approach this planet with hostile intent, know this: We will defend ourselves. We will defend humanity.
