I am wondering how violent Optimus should be in Transformers Prime, especially since I'm writing an Transformers Prime crossover fanfic that's going to have him fighting several Cons. I haven't seen him as violent towards Cons in the show as he was in the movies. The only time I've really seen him slicing faces has been when facing already dead zombies. Should he slice more faces or not? I am thinking of a scene in my fanfic where he sticks his sword through two Vehicons' faces at once trying to protect Mulder. (Yes, it's an X-Files crossover fanfic.) Should he really be this violent in the show and would it therefore really be appropriate for a fanfic based on such a show? I would love the face-slicing, but I don't know if it is truly appropriate for his character or not? Just need some opinions.
