    If you were writing TF (cartoon, movie, comics, ect) and you had to kill off a character, who would it be and why?
    And no, Wheelie doesn't count, since we all want him dead...lol

    Whoever it was, I'd try to make their death reflect their characters. A coward or character who let others fight for him would die shrieking as the last burst of energy wshes over him and evaporates him. A noble character would die a true warrior's death. A heroic character would die fighting the good fight, and his death would have a positive side, like saving the lives of countless others. A character with pronounced rivalry with another would die in combat with said rival, possibly taking them down, or possibly failing, so their last sight would be their enemy rising up, wounded but still very much alive.

    It adds weight to the death that way. Although there is also something to be said for the random out of nowhere enemy who gets in the lucky shot, just when you thought someone was actually going to live, or when you thought it would all be alright.

    If some of that list sounds like Beast Wars or the other good deaths, I apologise for nothing. In my opinion the TF series has always handled killing off major characters well, be it Dinobot, Armada Smokescreen or Energon Sixshot.

    Optimus Prime (for good this time). He'd finally defeat Megatron (killing him for good as well), only to become a random casualty of a War that no longer has heroes or villains, just destruction. No heroic sacrifice to save the universe, no celebration of victory over impossible odds, no fanfare, just another death in a never ending cycle. He'd live just long enough to fully understand that it never ends. As long as those who seek power for their own ends exist, the battle is never truly over.

    I would give them comedically ironic deaths.

    Optimus Prime would get run over by a truck.

    Bumblebee would get stung by an Insecticon and die.

    Cliffjumper would fall off a cliff.

    Jetfire would burst into flames.

    Starscream would collide with a falling star.

    And I could go on and on and on...

    We can't kill off Wheelie?

    Okay fine then we do a Transformers/Star Wars crossover cartoon and Megatron rips Jar Jar out of his mech so he can die in the void of space.

    Vaporize the character like what happened to Sixknight in Masterforce. You can pick the Transformer, I'd still vote for Wheelie. :lol

    I would say Optimus or the leading convoy and a one or two of his close friends. And their death would cause the death of Megatron.
    They would die going threw a decepticon space station that would blow up the earth. Optimus and Megatron have their final battle. Megatron get beat and left by him self optimus blows up the station with his own life force. the other two autobots would have died long before optimus had a face of with megatron. or galvatron how ever you want to see it.

    Wheelie gets run over by a bike,
    Warpath goes "BLAM" and explodes.
    Seaspray finally drowns.
    And Galvatron gets shot. In the face. With a bullet. Made of his own arm.

    Wow... that would make a really great ending to a TF series.

    No, really! He could fight Megatron to the death, and no sooner after he finishes Megatron off, he dies and we see one of the Autobots becoming the new Autobot leader, swearing to never forget Optimus and continue on the fight, from which at that point the series ends.

    Hmm... maybe I should incorporate that into a fanfic I'm planning on writing...

    Skywarp would be pushed down a flight of stairs.
    Wheeljack would die probably because of one of his own inventions.
    Reflector would die this way

    Hmmm...if I wanted to make em suffer....

    Have them get ripped and torn apart by the EVA units.....that'd be funny to see Wheelie getting stomped underfoot by EVA Unit 01.

    And of course kill a good half of em off with a Nuclear Explosion from GP-02's Nuke Bazooka....let the EMP Wave from that fry em.

    Or Torture them to death by having them watch Transformers Energon Non Stop....for days on end till they go insane.

    When i wrote my story about saint/sinner, i tried to kill off the characters that people really cared about and would feel something for, even the plucky little bumblebee. and I also made their deaths memorable. easily forgotten. something people see coming, dont want to happen, but cant help but find out.

    This should be interesting... :p 

    Well I'll just pretend I would be writing ROTF. Their not in any order.

    Optimus Prime: Gets defeated by Megatron in a final battle at Egypt. Much like in the G1 movie.

    Megatron: Is killed by Prime in final battle at Egypt. Later is reborn into Galvatron in TF 3.

    Ratchet: Gets killed by Devastator at Egypt. Devastator in a frenzy and is killing a bunch of people there in the 40 Transformers war zone.

    Devastator: Gets blown away in final explosion when The Fallen dies and a blast comes from one of the tall pyramids near the ending. (Also just for a cool TF 3 hint a huge Unicron symbol is left imprinted by fire around the war zone). :bay 

    New Barricade: Killed by Side Swipe in a battle, some point in the film.


    I could think of more but I don't want to go crazy with me and my ROTF fantasies. lol.

    Release a combination of Hate Plague and Cosmic Rust at the Autobots.They'll fight each other as the Cosmic Rust eats away at their bodies.
