    Really... What was the point of using that thing? Pretty much the whole movie, his face was completely uncovered and when he did have it on, it was just so that Bay could make another attempt to show off Megatron's badassiness.

    Don't get what the douche laugh is for. Anyway, I guess when Megatron got in the city, he really didn't need it on to protect him from sand, and dust. He did have it on when he was sulking on the ground before Carly showed up.

    You act like you have a problem with Megatron being a badass.

    The cowl was presumably there to keep sand/debris out of his wound. Whenever he is in a sheltered spot, such as his camp, Lincoln's Memorial or that alley, he takes it off because there's no risk of small things getting into his wound. Alternatively, it's more psychological; he keeps it to hide his injuries, and yet his pride coerces him to take it off now and then to show how he's still kicking despite a fusioncannon to the face.

    reminds me of Skyrim; I used to be a badass ROTF Megatron like you, but then I took a fusion cannon to the face

    He's probably ashamed in front of the other cons, but he'll take it off in front of Sentinel and Optimus to show he means business.

    That and the debris thing.

    even megatron recognizes that it's fun to play dress up sometimes.

    Once again you prove how awesomely smart you are. I was about to say something like this, but you made it much more clear, concise, and readable.

    Lol. If it gets too big, Megs can use it to cover his injuries instead of his cowl.

    "Michael Bay compared Megatron to Colonel Kurtz in Apocalypse Now: "He's hiding in the jungles of Africa, nursing his wounds and vainly hiding his pulverized visage while plotting - what else? - revenge!" Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011) - Trivia - IMDb

    So it's to protect his wound; but it's also out of vanity, so that noone can tell just how badly hurt he's been. Kudos to Meta777. It also served to underrate him: noone thought he could rip apart Sentinel in the climax of the Chicago battle.

    Plus a Transformer with threads is STYLE!

    It's too bad they didn't have him use it more because it gave him one of those Doctor Doom vibes. Villains can get away with fashion accessories that don't work in real life, like wearing a black cape to the grocery store looks silly, but when Darth Vader wears a black cape it looks cool.

    It's there for him to look bad ass.

    And it worked.

    Well, and what Meta777 said.
