    In BW when Megatron first talks to Quickstrike and Silverbolt, to let them know they are Predacons and tells them the transformation code "terrorize". When Silverbolt and Quickstrike tell Megs theirs names, Megs says something like "very good Quickstrike and ::cough:: Silverbolt" I always thought that was kind of strange. I always figured it had something to do with that Beast Wars Megatron had alot of knowledge about the Cybertronian Wars and recognized Silverbolt's name as the commander of the aerialbots. Is that the reason? or is there something else to it? because I was just wondering why Megs did that when saying Silverbolt's name for the first time.

    Probably the reference to the old heroic Autobot coupled with the heroic way Silverbolt stated his name.

    I think it is because Silverbolt sounds a little too goody-goody. Quickstrike sounds evil.

    I saw the title of this thread, and the first thing that entered my head was "...and I am funky!"
    Damn you, Prince. Damn you to Hell.

    I always figured it was the cheesy way Silverbolt introduced himself. Like it made Megatron go: "WTF?!"

    Yeah I have to agree that it was that Megatron was all "wtf? How can this guy be a Predacon?!" because of how Quickstrike was all bad-ass with the western music and Silverbolt with the horn fanfare. The way he said it was great "Welcome my dear Quickstrike and.. er.. Silverbolt"

    My guess is Megatron is just smart enough to recognize that Silverbolt is a total putz within seconds of meeting him.
