    I was rewatching the Darkness Rising Series, And I noticed something interesting. Ever since Part 3 of the Darkness Rising miniseries, Megatron's Voice has been much more Shoutier and G1. In his first full speaking appearance at the beginning of episode 2, his voice was quite deeper and more threatening Dr.Claw-ish scary. Comparing Megatron's current voice, he is less of a deep scary voice and more G1.

    When he first spoke in Part 2, I could've sworn it sounded like the Beast from Disney's Beauty and the Beast...except Frank never played the Beast, just the foot stool (the dog)

    But yeah, I did notice the voice changed a little.

    Well the voice actors admittedly changed their voicing styles as the show progresses. Take for example Arcee. In an interview I watched about her, she said that during the earlier episodes, specifically the Darkness Rising mini-series, she had a more girlish voice set in mind for Arcee. But on the following episodes up to the season 2, she became more and more of a warrior-type, so she had to adjust her voice to match the current standing of her character.

    So, with regards to Megatron and the other characters, the situation was the same - experimenting and feeling the vibe of the show to eventually get comfortable all throughout.

    I think it's more like "After Darkness Rising 2 Megatron displayed more emotion than just ">:D  bwuhuhuhu i am the boss" than the voice really changing. During all of DR2 he's talking low, but in DR3 he is shouting and gleeful and more.

    I think it's because, as a professional voice actor, frank welker wants to find the best voice for megatron in this series.

    I actually like when a villian doesn't have to have a rough and rowdy voice 24 7. megatron has recently been sounding like his life is pretty good

    Remember Homer Simpson's voice in Season 1. It was like a bad Walter Mattau impersonation that not only sounded bad but actually strained Dan Castallaneta's voice. Luckily he changed it and it became more natural and less forced.

    He may be trying to slowly sneak back towards the G1 voice without anybody noticing, lol...
