    I've always wondered this. Any version of him I don't remember any sense of humor just serious.

    I am fairly sure most to all of them have at least cracked a joke a time or two, now the quality of said jokes or quips are open to interpretation. But i don't remember one who never tried at all.

    G1 prime did... See the episode where he was up against a Megatron clone of himself.. At the conclusion spike asks is it really him... He got confused in his response... Stumbled over his words and everyone started laughing.

    Movie Optimus is fighting a war against cruel giant warmachines while his species gets inches away from absolute extinction.

    I wouldn't have a sense of humour either.

    Anyway, I do think he has some sense of humour, but very light [like in the first movie, "Uh, Sorry son"] and very-well hidden.

    He has a lot do think on, y'know.

    Yeah, he seemed more at ease in the first movie when at Sam's house.As for cracking jokes, you really see that happening? Even in the cartoon with his infamous booby line, it seemed really out of character.

    Ani/G1/BW Primal/RiD. All humorous. Movie. I think he only laughs after he has spilled the blood of his enemies, and then I'm not sure it's a "ha ha" laugh.

    Yes, of course! And not just in a scene in Sam's backyard. But what about the scene with a Simmons' team and car with a torn roof from the first film? :thumbs2:  And yet, I don't know how it sounded on the original English, in ROTF, when the Jetfire's wings were turned on, in the Russian translation he said just surprising "Поехали!!!" It was very cool!!! :cool:  Like the first cosmonaut :)

    I think the Animated version was more of the kind of Prime to crack jokes, given that he was younger and inexperienced compared to the others. But even then it was very rare.

    And that G1 version really cracked me up! :lolol

    Does he look like Jerry Seinfeld or David Letterman. No but he could make a decent Lewis Black.
