    Does Prime fear death?
    I wouldn't think so, seeing how he is Optimus Prime, he'd be tough, right?
    Well then I thought about how he yelled "No!" when he was stabbed through the chest in ROTF, and how he sort of pleaded for Sentinel not to kill him in DOTM, the part where he yells out "Please!":

    ROTF, "No!"

    DOTM, "Please!"

    He shouted "no" because he just got stabbed through the chest.

    He pleaded "please" because he still cared about Sentinel and was trying to appeal to the master-student bond they once shared.

    Besides, nobody wants to die.

    Seriously, dude?

    Things to keep in mind:

    - What if I shoved a spear on your back and slowly burned your heart with it or cut off your right arm and prepared to finish you off with a blade. You might be a little less willing to not say those things after said events.

    - First Case is more of "No! Without me, there's no one to stop Megatron!", second case is a classic "Please Sentinel, I know there's still good in you!"

    Yeah, because leaving the Decepticons on Earth trying to hunt Sam while being dead is a totally pleasant thought

    And the DOTM one I believe he was just still trying to turn Sentinel around back to his side.

    If anyone feared death it would be Starscream. But Prime no way. The people above have already explained it pretty well.

    Does Prime fear death

    :lolol 
    This is totally funny. Of course Optimus doesn't fear death. They are in a war. They all know death is invetible. Besides if Optimus feared death he wouldn't be the way he is.

    And here I was hoping that this would be about Thundertron when I saw it on TFW's front page sidebar.

    I think he fears death but not enough for it to impede him from doing from the right thing. Most people fear death, it's what you do because of that fear that defines you. Optimus may not have wanted to die, but he didn't do anything wrong to stay alive.

    The please wasn't PLEASE DON'T KILL ME, it was PLEASE STOP BEING EVIL.

    The no, well, gosh he was getting stabbed in the back and shot. I think yo'ure justified to go NO at that.

    I really wonder about this forum sometimes. :lol 

    Jack Sparrow fears death, though. But Norrington doesn't. ;)

    Probably not. Death is meaningless in Transformers so long as there are toys to sell.

    Do you fear death? Do you fear that dark abyss? All your deeds laid bare, all your sins punished? I can offer you…an escape.


    I wouldn't hold anyone to what they say when being impaled, but to me Optimus seemed far more distressed that he was failing his mission than the loss of his own life.

    This. Especially seeing as how his dying words were "Sam...run..." as opposed to "F**K! This hurts! This really hurts! I am in so much pain! I don't wanna' die! I don't wanna' die!".
