Which series, in your opinion, had the best final fight between Optimus and Megatron?
The best final fight was final fight 3, though final fight guy for the NES was pretty impressive for an 8-bit beatemup.
On topic, I have to go for the original TFTM fight. Still stands up well by today's standards, IMO.
Yay, you know how to add a poll!
Anyway either G1, Movieverse or Cybertron
actual fight between Optimus and Megatron or also including the build up before the fight(such as Optimus running down G1 'Cons? before facing Megatron)?
Beast Wars had a good fight if including the build up.
Animated Final Battle of Prime and Megatron is so bada$$.
No, just the battle between the two themselves.
cybertron was the best to date...i feel...always liked the voltron sword cut that prime lays down on galvatron....fucking epic.
BM Optimus Primal and Megatron fight. The fate of both Maximals and Predacons was all left to Optimus Primal. Even when Megatron just about won it all, he kept on fighting back. At the end he gave up his own life to forever end the threat that Megatron brought and liberated Cybertron's population
My next favorite would be the Animated final battle between Prime and Megatron.
G1 fight. End of story!
I've always liked the original G1 fight, but the TFA one comes really close.
Not on the list, but Armada's was great.
I agree, but it wasn't their FINAL fight.
i voted cybertron however, DOTM was a great fight too. with cybertron they fought so hard they went off planet to a moon. DOTM was grueling and extremely violent and as well all know, violent = awesome.
TF:TM Optimus vs Megatron
I agree. It was one of the only good parts of the entire show, but man did they put a lot of heart (and animation budget) into it. It was definitely impressive, especially compared to the quality of its surroundings
BW and BM aren't on there...?
The BW one, in Nemesis, Pt 2, is great, with this classic line:
Megatron: "Come on, the usual destiny and honor speech"
Primal: "Speech this.", as he decks Megs.
BM was good too, as both of them died.
Regardless, I picked Animated. The "My name is Optimus Prime!" quote was great.
armada, it was the best final fight, the fact cybertron is on the list and armada isn't should be a crime!
I can't believe the Armada fight isn't on this list. I think it's still my favourite in terms of flat out brutality, imagination, duration, desperation... even the banter is not bad...
TFTM '86 is overrated in my opinion, though I understand why (nostalgia factor). The problem is that there's no meat to it. It's all drama and camera angles and music, but short on substance or internal logic. It's basically just the least fighting they possibly felt they needed to do to get them to the plot point of Prime's death.
By comparison, Armada is epic... though unfortunately it's intercut with a lot of other action in other locations, which drags it out and undercuts the intensity a little bit. Still has to be the most involved, detailed, all-out TF fight I've ever seen in any media.
Isn't it though? I mean, doesn't Mega/Galvatron get sucked into a black hole or Unicron or something at the end?
I think it's certainly close enough to make the list.
He means the fact that all the Armada characters come back in Energon, and Cybertron. So though it's the last fight of Armada, it's not the last fight of those 2 guys. But the Armada fight was better than the Cybertron one to me
