    Even as mortal enemies do you think this two factions respect each other on and off the battle field? And I am not only talking about Megatron and Prime but it would be nice to know if Prime and Megs respect each other, and how about the rest of the Decepticons and Autobots?

    Thanks

    I'm pretty certain that everybody, Autobots and Decepticons alike, has a fearful respect for Shockwave.

    I don't think Starscream has a shred of respect for anyone but himself.

    Thundercracker probably has respect for his opponents.

    I remember Ultra Magnus (G1) being a soldier of such integrity and nobility that even most Decepticons, with the exclusion of Galvatron, held him in high regards.

    On a side note, I've always liked the concept of two sides that are considered rivals but they each have a mutual respect for one another, even if they're unable to see things eye-to-eye.

    Generally speaking, I'd say yes. However, I think just like any two groups of persons, you'd gonna have a few make fun of others, etc. It's just basic sociology.

    I think it totally depends on the individual. I'm sure it varies quite a bit. Some bots and cons are all about the respect. Others would insult your mother and teabag your corpse (or whatever the Cybertronian equivalent would be). :) 

    If you haven't read IDW's last ongoing run #23 and #24 (i think), you probably should. You definitely see that side to Prime and Megatron.

    G1 Wheeljack allegedly has some respect from the cons because of his inventions that worked.

    Agreed. I really liked that scene, because it really made it seem as though Knock Out had been not just expecting but almost HOPING that Bumblebee made it an actuall challenge.

    What comes to mind for me is this:
    In the orginal Transformers cartoon Cyclonus saves Ultra Magnus from falling out into space (and possibly into a black hole) in the episode The Killing Jar. Then he said something like 'Warriors such as you and I should meet our fates on the battlefield'. It was pretty awesome and definatly showed that Cyclonus respected Ultra Magnus.

    I think the Autobots respected the Decepticons a lot more. I mean have you ever noticed how the Autobots knew who each of the Decepticons were? They identified them by name. Can't say the same about the Decepticons.

    In the episode Autobot Gears Megstron says his name like he's never heard it before. And then there's that episode with the clone Optimus that Megatron is controlling. Megatron- "Bumblebee I'm speaking to you" Ironhide- (looks around) "Are you talking to me Prahm?"
