    I was going back and watching some of the end of Beast Wars Season 3 and I wondered this: How actually does Depth Charge kill Rampage? I thought it was a bit ambiguous in that scene. Does he actually stab him with the energon sword?

    He stabs Rampage through his spark/heart with raw energon, and they both blown up to tiny little pieces.

    edit: I've always hated how rushed seasons 2 and 3 were. For such a great shows it could have gone on a couple season even without the toys.

    Yeah, season 3 felt especially 'rushed'...maybe it was due to budget constraints but it was my fave season of BWs.

    rampages spark was already split in two. so when that half was destroyed. the other half fixed it self and became whole. so it really didnt get destroyed. it just sorta went to dinobot.

    Ok. I just wasn't sure if he actually stabbed him though, because when Rampage starts laughing, it looks like Depth Charge actually has that spark thing that Megatron always carried with him that he squeezed when Rampage was being a bitch.

    The thing that Megs squeezed was the other half of Rampages spark. At the point of the scene you are talking about it was already inside Dinobot 2.

    Rampage was laying there with his spark exposed, and then he just gave up and let Depthcharge kill him. He was probably laughing because he knew it would cost Depthcharge his life to do it.

    Didn't Rampage say that himself? That it would kill both of them.

    There are several possible answers to why Rampage was laughing and why he just let DC kill him. Perhaps he was finally tired of the dance, of being immortal. Perhaps he wanted ti kill them both. Maybe he was just insane.

    I just rewatched the moment where he laughs as Depthcharge pushed the energon into him, and all he did was laugh, didn't really say anything. He may have said it earlier in the fight, but not at the end.

    It just seemed like a really odd scene to me. I knew that it was in Dinobot, but when it cuts back to Depth Charge when Rampage is laughing, it looks like he has something else in his hands besides the energon sword. BTW, I love the episode, just never really grasped what happened right there.
