    Round 8 of the Prime vs. Animated match-ups is:

    [​IMG] VS [​IMG]

    Brakedown vs Lugnut!

    Scenario: A bored Brakedown is taking a drive not far from the Nemesis when he spots a strange purple bomber jet following him above. He fires a missile up at the bomber jet. Bullseye! The bomber jet goes down. Just before it hits the ground though, it transforms into a large brute of a Decepticon: TFA Lugnut! Brakedown transforms and the two titanic 'cons clash.

    Knock Out's strongman partner or the Megatron loyalist?

    Easily Lugnut. Despite having size and firepower over him, he's just more of a brawler. He'll fight to the bitter end unless ordered differently, wheras Breakdown will bug out at the first sign of real danger.

    Luggy. He's too badass for Breakdown. Now, against Jayne, Luggy's toast.

    Well..

    Breakdown seems to be:
    - A much better Fighter than Lugnut.
    - Faster and More agile than Lugnut.
    - Smarter than Lugnut.

    But Lugnut also seems to be:
    - Stronger than Breakdown [and there's also the poke].
    - More resistant [also by large].

    Things here are pretty matched, but I'll go with Breakdown because Lugnut is dumber than a BRICK, Breakdown has some brains, he can come up with a strategy to take down such a big enemy, using agility and throwing things at him on strategical points.

    Not saying he is a genius of strategy, but the size difference here counts a lot, Breakdown can just dodge most of Lugnut's attacks, and strike him with strength on his weak spots until he falls.

    On the other hand, if Breakdown get hit by the POKE at ANY time of the fight, he's screwed.

    But I find that less likely.

    Which character do I like better? Lugnut.

    Who do I think would win in a fight? Hard to say. Maybe Lugnut as well.

    I like both Breakdown and Lugnut, one for being a cool-headed brute, the other for being a hilarious yet deadly Megatron fanatic.

    Lugnut would probably win. As said, if Megatron ordered him to fight Breakdown, he would fight to his very last breath. All the while going, "GLORIOUS MEGATRON!!!"

    Lugnut only seems dumb because of his religious fanaticism to Megatron, but he's been shown to be fairly intelligent. He took command of the Decepticons in Decepticon Air, and decided to spare Sentinel and Jazz for now. That takes some logic, even if it was Swindle's idea. As well... he's pretty damn smart if he had enough self control to not command the Lugnut Supremes bow down to Megatron in every second of Endgame, Part II. :D 

    Breakdown, however, is a bit smarter then Lugnut tactically. As also said, he knows when to bug out and wait for another opportunity. Lugnut would just POKE AND POKE AND POKE as long as might Megatron commanded it, regardless of his condition.

    I doubt Breakdown would participate in a battle to the death, since he would probably recognize Lugnut's fanatic devotion to the task at hand, as well as Lugnut's aerial and fighting advantage. Lugnut was shown to be taller then Megatron, who was about 40 ft tall, and Breakdown is 30 at the most. Lugnut would definetly win this fight, but Breakdown would more then likely not stick around to get POKED.

    Lugnut. He's MUCH bigger than Breakdown.

    Yet it's hard to say, because Breakdown isn't as much of as dumbass as Lugnut is (if TFA Bulkhead can outsmart you, you know you're screwed)

    YET it's easy to choose because Lugnut is the best original TFA character and one of my fav Decepticons ever.

    Lugnut. He's fecking enormous, and very very powerful. In terms of brute strength he's probably a match for Megatron...Breakdown...isn't

    To get the formality of an answer out of the way - not really seen enough of Brakedown to comment. He's not really done a lot or appeared much, so still undecided.

    What I came in here to ask was, and it may have been covered in a previous thread I missed, why are all these matches Prime vs Animated?
    Why not Prime vs G1, AEC, RiD etc etc?

    Couldn't Lugnut just step (or land) on Breakdown?

    Also, P.O.K.E.

    Because Animated and Prime were the last two cartoons to come out, and people like to compare the predecessor to its immediate successor.

    Of course, not saying Prime is derived from Animated.

    Breakdown would dodge.

    You can't really dodge a POKE. It has 'everything' in its name for a reason.

    Seriously, unless Breakdown was fast enough (And Lugnut wasn't exactly super slow) he couldn't outrun Lugnut, and he sure as hell couldn't outfight Lugnut either. How is this even a contest? Breakdown's a brute, but Lugnut's a fanatical force of nature. He's got both the physical and mental fortitude to outlast almost if not any opponent. That little ball-peen hammer of Breakdown's is no match for Lugnut's gigantic four-pronged spear.

    Lugnut, not because I like him but because he's much stronger even though he is dumb as hell.

    Breakdown hasn't really done anything yet so I'll have to go with Lugnut. I love his character.

    If the POKE were "undodgeable", we wouldn't have Transformers: Animated, we would have Lugnut's TOP Fatalities: Animated.

    Lugnut was a dumb brick [he still was insanely strong, though], that would give Breakdown some advantage on the fight.

    It should be noticed That the sheer impact of that thing hitting its target was enough to tear an iceberg in two without even touching it.

    Of course the POKE is far stronger, but that shit is not to be played with either.

    For some reason I always picture Breakdown launching an Iron Rod in Lugnut's eye and impaling it, maybe that's why I picture him winning [I'm the only, it seems].
