    Why isn't that predacon and decepticons only reprogrammed their enemies and autobots/maximals don't?They don't even do that to decepticon prototypes. Not even for good warriors, you think they would or at least try to reform them.

    Simple. Autobots have honour, and are above such underhanded tactics.

    Altering someone's programming or thinking by force is tantamount to slavery hence why the Maximals & Autobots won't do it. Read TransFormers Legends: Redemption Center by Alexander B. Potter for a great story on this topic.

    What he said. The Autobots/ Maximals could change a bots/protoform programming but it would not be the choice of the core program. To change that without consent would be the same as brainwashing, which is not a Maximal/Autobot way of doing things.

    In the G1 cartoon, the Autobots did try to alter Devastator's personaity ro make him serve them. He wasn't a protoform, but that still counts.

    In the episode about Omega Supreme's past in G1, Omega Supreme tried to reprogram the contstructicons back to their former selves, but Prime said something along the lines of being unable to remove decepticon programming, and Omega Supreme was unable to do it. That of course was a G1 episode that contradicted its own mythos, so take it as seriously as anything said in the G1 cartoons.

    They did it to. The whole episode was centered around Devastator being used and manipulated by everyone.

    a

    Well, I had never thought about it before, but maybe the Predacons had to reprogram the Maximal protoforms, since they had no ready supply of already Predacon protoforms available to them.

    Not that they did not have a pre-disposition to do so or had any problems mentally doing it to a helpless lifeform. But it may have been necessity.

    They stole a ship that was not a science ship and if the Predacons had their own protoforms I am sure they were too heavily guarded to take any for an army.

    It never says if the original Predacons all started life as maximal protoforms or not.

    And yes, I understand it was just a plot point to introduce new characters/new toys, I am speaking in a strictly logical realistic point f view, I do not believe the shows creators though all this out.

    Didn't the maximals try to get Black Arachnia to let them remove the predacon programming? She objected, so they left her alone.

    Yeah, Autobots are all about free will, and reprogramming a Decepticon would be like brainwashing, I'd imagine they are morally opposed to it.

    Yeah, and then there was the whole Tankor/Rhinox thing too.

    Well, Devastator was reprogrammed by the Decepticons first. You could look at it as undoing the damage rather than reprogramming him.

    He was also built by Megatron on earth, and he also built Megatron on Cybertron, too.


    Devastator has the most messed up origins.

    Actually, they did.

    Megatron's Predacons never brought Protoforms, as they stole the ship.

    Megatron and the Predacons are decendants of Decepticons, and thus are not Maximals and were never Protoforms.

    It's interesting to note that both Gobot Guardians and Humans in the free world regularly reprogram the minds of anyone they think are defective; Gobots with the Enemy Reprogramming Center aboard the Gobot Command Center, and Humans with Psychiatry. So who's to say it's wrong? Maybe the Autobots and Maximals are just naive?

    The Autobots didn't reprogram Devastator, exactly - at least, they didn't try to turn him into an Autobot. They just temporarily shut down his conciousness until he had no free will and then stole him, as a way to deprive Megatron of a resource without actually having to kill the Constructicons, and stop them shattering the Earth at the same time.

    They still hadn't figured out what to do with Devastator long-term when Megatron nullified their control, making the point moot.
