    hey, how does Megatron fly in animated? and i mean in bot mode. Megatron only seems to have one form of lift, and that is his helicopter blades, which become swords, so they cant lift him off-how does he do it?

    only thing i can think of is that he flew the first time cause he was empowered by the Allspark Key, and the other was more him falling with style-it was with him and Blitzwing when they chased Starscream.

    How could he fly when he turned into a gun? Decepticons just FLY. There's never any explanation.

    But if you want a plausible reason, maybe he uses his cannon as propulsion?

    not in animated-the only ones who fly are the ones who turn into flying things-but Megatron doesnt make sense, as the others still havewings and thrusters

    This explanation is as good as any, in my opinion - I culled it off the Decepticon Dominion website. It's primarily G1-centric, but yeah.

    only thing that doesnt seem to work there is that Lockdown, with all his bounty hunting and whatnot would definately have come across that type of tech, as hes been in business since before Ratchet's gut-which means a looooooooooooong time lol

    I want to know how Blitzwing flies too, Starscream at least uses his thrusters but Blitzwing just floated.

    Yeah, Megatron showed that he has a ton of power, perhaps he can channel the excess for lift?

    actually, thinking back-when have we ever seen him fly? everytime we do see him, he is going downwards-like falling with style.

    He has a giant being of the same species as Aron turn invisible and follow him around and then pick him up when he needs to "fly".

    I thought his helicopter design had thrusters for additional speed and manueverability, sorta like Evac in Cyb. Thats what it looked like his hands came out from, my first impression during his transformation

    The same way Lugnut did when he first heard Megs voice. Either that, or he's too cartoony to realize there's a thing called gravity C:<

    Lug had thrusters on his back - huge ones with inferno-like exhaust.

    He rockets out of Sumdac tower mere seconds after getting his body and hovers there for a few moments before slowly decending. (too slow to be falling)

    Lugnut at least activated a badass jetpack, Blitzwing probably just floats because Decepticons... just do it like that, in the leaked video of the last episode Lugnut flies in earth bot mode without his jetpack too.

    Maybe those little intakes on Megs' legs act like thrusters in robot mode?

    He hovered (which counts as flying) in Mission accomplished where he faced down Starscream before chasing after him.

    This is just like my thread on Blackarachnia :rolleyes2  The two bots with unexplained flight abilities are Blitzwing and Megatron, but Blitzwing is easier to explain since the way he transforms his wings and thruster go onto his back.

    Megatron takes orders from no one - gravity included.
