    Ratchet's origin story for Optimus and Megatron's relationship reveals that Megatron took his name from one of the thirteen original primes and truncated it. Ratchet didn't mention if the original Megatronus went on to become the Fallen, but that would be a good story - the bad boy prime comes back to wrest control of the Decepticons from an 'imposter', and knowing the way Megatron felt slighted by Unicron, he would put up a good fight. Any weight to this, or just mindless rambling?

    Yes.

    It was a big retcon to make The Fallen (essentially the first "Evil" Transformer after Unicron himself) be the namesake for Megatron himself. There actually was a rumor going around that The Fallen would be showing up in Prime, but that was among other rumors that never panned out. And at the rate this show is going, it may be long over before The Fallen even gets the show up.

    In the aligned continuity, yes Megatronus Prime did become the Fallen. The Fallen has been mentioned in passing in Prime. Also Megatron in the aligned continuity created the Decepticons so the Fallen is not a Decepticon at the moment.

    Wither or not that is true for Prime will remain to be seen but it seems like something they would stick to.

    Yes, Megatronus Prime is the one that went totally ballistic and became the Fallen.

    Magatronus Prime aligned himself with Unicron, against Primus and the rest of the Primes. So while he is not a Decepticon, he is essentially the heart of the principles which created the Decepticons. The fact that Megatron named himself after the Fallen should have been a big clue on his true intentions way before he even lashed out against the Council/Newest Prime and created the Decepticons.

    Megatron in Aligned created the Decepticons as freedom fighters challenging the near-fascist government. Then he went power crazy and decided to become the new fascist overlord. That's kind of a bit of difference from being a disciple of a being who wants to destroy everything.

    Theres this wonderful fairy tale land called TFWiki, it has all the answers without anyone asking stupid questions. I don't mean to be harsh but research doesn't have to be restricted to making pointless threads. If you want answers badly, go to yahoo answers.

    Um.... pretty sure that in the new Aligned Continuity, Megatronus became the Fallen for murdering Solus Prime.... NOT because he became a disciple of Unicron.

    According the the Prime backstory (which may be different from other align-continuity stories, which contrary to some belief, are not aligned with one-another), Megatron's preaching of liberation and freedom was a farce and his (specifically stated) "True intentions" became known when he appeared before the council. Thats when Orion Pax broke off communication with his ex-mentor.

    You're right about this, I knew about the murder, but for some reason i thought it was under the instruction/influence of Unicron.

    I think the Council may have had pretty sound judgement in not wanting to make another guy named "Megatronus" a Prime.

    And hey, he turned evil anyway.

    If it was, it hasn't been explicitly stated as such. It is likely Alpha Trion didn't know the entire story of his brother and his actions.

    I do believe that's how it is supposed to go. Fallen should be in season 3 IMO.

    Yeah, the Fallen isn't servant of Unicron anymore, unicron was already gone when he went rouge and Killed Solus Prime.

    If The Fallen show up in Prime than he turns Megatron into Galvatron.

    You could have looked this up on TFWiki instead of wasting time making a redundant thread, you know. >:| But yes, Megatronus is the Fallen. Liege (Leige?) Maximo is also a bad guy, but he was /made/ to be a sort of archenemy to good so.. [/shrug]

    Maybe we'll get lucky, and some of the 13 will show up in season 3.

    I doubt it since Tony Todd voices Dreadwing, unless Dreadwing dies.
