    So it looked like Dirge was eaten by Unicron, yet he showed up during the FFOD and other season 3 eps.
    When Octane was chased into the Decepticon crypt, he saw Thundercrackers marker, and another nameless dead con marker. Oc mimicked the dead con saying "Death comes to he who hides behind my marker"
    That is pretty much the speech pattern of Dirge, a sing song...well, dirge. Oc even hinted at the pattern in his vocalization
    I think the writers intended that grave to be Dirges.
    Any thoughts?

    I wish it was, but Dirge appeared in a later episode (I don't think that later appearance was an error) and that statue looks nothing like him. Nice to see someone else who thinks this, though (big Dirge fanboy here).

    I think that the jets that get eaten might have been generics. Although I do recall reading a cut out line from TFTM that was similar to that so who knows. The line from TFTM might have been his motto or something. I should check TFWiki.

    Dirge dies in every continuity except Shattered Glass, He was the first Kenny Transformers had before Waspinator,

    I'm starting to thinking Dirge is actually Waspinator's relative than Shrapnel.

    Thanks for all of the good comments. These are fun speculations.
    Stovokor, great images to clarify the facts (at least for the duration of the movie)

    To the "here we go again" guy, I humbly apologize for this thread. I didnt mean to bore you with it. Ill make sure and edit myself more carefully so as not to offend you in the future.

    Dont be sorry.

    Yes, there are a lot of these kinds of threads....but that the main reason we are all here, to discuss things.

    Anyone boarded or tired of these topics just dont need to reply.

    It's like any other cartoon, NOBODY EVER DIES/NOBODY STAYS DEAD.

    Oh and it helps that they are just machines.

    Which means you can always build another Ramjet/thrust/dirge etc.

    Oh and another example is...UNICRON himself.

    This is another one of those cases where, when it comes to the original Transformers cartoon, I just say "let it go man, let it go." In the movie we also saw the insecticons get reformatted into other characters (and no, I'm not gonna get into who became who). However, later in the movie, and later in season three, we see the insecticons reappear. In addition, Galvatron appears in the crowd of Decepticons before Cyclonus and the sweeps have even retrieved him. "When it comes to discrepancies in the original Transformers cartoon, just em go man. Let em go." - words to live by.
