    This thread is inspired by a thread called can Ironhide take on Megatron which was posted 5 years ago in this specific forum (PLEASE DON'T bump that thread because it's against the rules to revive old threads and I might get the blame fo), which asks whether the former weapon specialist of the Autobots and compete with the leader of the Decepticons: The mighty Megatron himself. However, Ironhide's position of being the weapon specialist and the of of being the "tough guy" has been replaced by Hound - who is the new weapon specialist and tough guy. Granted, there is a difference - Hound is more of a gun commando, he has a larger arsenal and really loves spamming his guns until they run out of ammo and relying on dirty fighting. But Ironhide is more of the muscle of the Autobots who's more interested in direct physical combat and seems to be more a tactical fighter than Hound. Either way, the difference is quite minor, they're still very similar.

    Another reason why I decided to create this thread is because in the latest TF5 TLK trailer, we see a brief shot of Hound having an encounter with Megatron who slams his large mace into Hound's face, and you can see Hot Rod in the back ground:

    This looks a really interesting and awesome scene. However, we don't actually know what's going on. We don't know if this is a two-on-one battle, we don't know if this is a one-on-one battle between Megatron and Hound which Hot Rod inteferes, we don't know if there's actually going to be any other Autobots or Decepticons in this specific scene, and last of all - we don't even actually know what the outcome is going to be. I've seen some users speculate that this is going to be a homage to the 1986 Movie which has fight between Megatron and Optimus Prime, in which Hot Rod interferes by trying to save Optimus but ends up getting Optimus killed - those users are theorising that Hound is going to die in this Movie because of his fight with Megatron and Hot Rod's interference - which is admittedly a very interesting theory, but it's still speculation. I have no idea what's going to happen. In fact, I'll take this even further by saying we don't even know how this version of Megatron compares to the other versions of Megatron in the previous Movies, some might say he's more powerful because of what we've seen him do in the trailers such as head butting a possessed Optimus Prime, but we don't even know if that had anything to do with external circumstances hat was a hindrance for Optimus (I think being possessed might add a lot of mental conflict to Optimus which could affect his emotional frame of mind).

    Oh and let me clarify that this is not a "Who would win" thread. It's a discussion that exchanges ideas on how Hound could fare against Megatron, and let me also clarify that this will not include TF5: TLK Megatron because the Movie hasn't been released yet, so here are the scenarios:

    Round 1: Hound takes on TF1 Megatron. How well does he perform?

    Round 2: Hound takes on TF2 Megatron. How well does he perform?

    Round 3: Hound takes on TF3 Megatron. How well does he perform?

    I hope this leads to an extremely interesting discussion. As for any additional information, we're only going to use what we know about Hound as a fighter from TF4: AOE because TF5: TLK hasn't been released yet. We've got plenty of information about Hound from TF4: AOE because he participated in a battle against Galvatron's KSI robots.

    Hound is good with guns,that being he is like a sniper, I doubt he will have enough pace to avoid Megatron in close combat

    I think that, out of all the Autobots aside from Optimus and the Dinobots, he'd be the most able to match Megatron physically, but I don't really see him beating Megatron by himself.

    I doubt he'd be able to physically match Megatron. TF1 and TF2 Megatron is extremely durable and strong when you watch the forest battle again, being able to withstand physical beatings from angry Optimus and toss Optimus around like a rag doll.

    I think Hound could take in Megatron in a decent fight, mainly because he's a really dirty fighter and has a lot of guns and explosives that he spams a lot, that would probably be enough to stall Megatron but not enough to injury him because of his insane durability, Megatron will eventually come close, and when that happens, Hound gets badly wrecked.

    Megatron's a feared and powerful tyrant for a reason. Even with all his guns Hound's going to have a very difficult time taking on Megatron so he needs to be smart on how he'll beat him if at all.

    Its good for Megatron to terminate Hound as many ppl dislike his ugly bearded human face and fat robot design.

    He has no chance and gets killed pretty fast.

    Same as above.

    He does better against a weakened Megatron. But in the end he is still no match for Megatron's brute force and fighting skills.

    I think it'll be like when Bulkhead took on Megatron in Transformers: Prime when he saved Optimus from a finishing blow during the One Shall Rise/Unicron Story I think episode 24 of Season 1. He was able to push him back for a few good hits while Arcee and Ratchet pull him through the Groundbridge, but was eventually overpowered and go gut punched a few feet back. Then had a Round Two in Season Two's Opening Arc where Bulkhead was the last to fall after Ratchet and Bumblebee. His Animated Despiction also face Megatron during his resurrection arc and was easily defeated along with Prowl and Optimus. With Movie Hound being mostly based on Bulkhead I'd say physically he can match him. But that won't be enough against Megatron's strength and his cunning.

    No. Hound is a soldier with a lot of guns and knives, but Megatron is leader of the Decepticons.

    That gif makes me wonder if there is a movie gif thread somewhere on this forum? Does anyone know?

    The movie Decepticons are so weak if the little girl in the Last Knight had a baseball bat I'd put my money on the little girl beating Megatron to death.

    Sorry, I misread your post because I thought you meant Hound would also be most able to match Megatron in comparism to all other Autobots besides Optimus from TF1 and onwards.
