    In TF1 he was awesome killing Bonecrusher but lost to Megatron
    In TF2 he took on Grindor, Starscream, and Megatron all at once. Best scene of the movie, that was just so awesome. And destroyed The Fallen and Megatron again at the end.
    In TF3 he killed the huge worm like machine, Shockwave, Megatron (with ONE arm!), Sentinel Prime, and a TON of Decepticons.
    In TF4 I'm guessing he will kill Unicron and Galvatron with no arms and one leg.

    Anyone else see this pattern? By the way my favorite Optimus Prime is movie version by far.

    Well, technically Megatron severely weakened Sentinel and Optimus shot him in the head...

    Sentinel told all the Decepticons to attack Prime while he tried to get away. If anything Prime was weakened before the final Sentinel fight. Before Sentinel called in the Decepticons Prime was winning.
    Not only that but I think they wanted the audience to feel like not all Decepticons are weak and get beaten so easily even though Sentinel wasn't a Decepticons. So they gave Sentinel the upper hand. But they had to make way for the Megatron betrayal, I'm pretty sure that's the main reason.

    It seems like if you're on the side of good, you win, megatron was a weak-ass punk when fighting autobots, but the moment he fought for good he wasted sentinels aa, when OP couldn't. just sayin.

    ^He attacked Sentinel by his back, Sentinel was too busy saying "WHAT THE SHIT?" to fight back.

    He is a pretty significant badass, but let's not forget a couple of facts:

    1) Prime was losing the fight with Megs in the original movie, Sam had to save him with the Allspark.
    2) Prime actually lost the fight in the forest scene (best TFs scene of all time though)
    3) Prime needed to be powered up by Jetfire to beat Megs and The Fallen
    4) Prime was slapped down like a little bitch by Sentinel on the Mall in DC
    5) The other Autobots were initially helping during the final fight with Sentinel and may have weakened him.

    Really, I think the thing that makes Prime so great and such an awesome character is that he wins even when he is outnumbered and outclassed. His strength of character is what leads him to victory, not necessarily his physical strength.

    In the scene before the Autobots blast off where Prime is telling Sam "The fight is your own" etc. Primes chest is wider, thicker with servos he didn't previously have.

    well i think one of the main reasons prime got beat so bad in the first movie is because he was in a city with buildings and other people to protect so he couldnt go all mortal combat on megatron like he did in the third movie, and the only reason he lost the forest battle was he turned his back of megatron to look for sam, but time does pass between thes movies so of course optimus is gonna get stronger

    Optimus actually had several chances to kill Megatron and Starscream during the forest fight. I think he was actually trying to keep at least one of them alive so he could find out what they were planning. Had he killed all three of them the Fallen probably could've activated the sun harvester without them even knowing what was going on.

    For all intensive purposes Megatron kill sentinel... Prime just finished him... Megs was weakened from the start... Starscream eluded to it early in the film when he commented on Megs condition.. But Megs still had enough left to take out that fraud sentinel.

    Oh.. And my theory on Prime being stronger is The Matrix!!! It's raw power that makes him almost invincible !!! Where as Megs has become weaker from what seems like downgrades each film to this one, where he seems to have got no repairs at all. So that forest scene in rotf was a spare parts Megs vs 100% Optimus, and the climax was Un winnable for Megs, seeing as how Prime had the matrix.

    Maybe, but in my little head, he just got to Earth, and really didn't know the humans all that well yet, but after Sam saved him and he got to know the team of Nest, he had more of a reason to fight off the Decpticons. Basically, I just don't think his heart wasn't in it as much as it was in the second film.

    Perhaps he's a Saiyen, that could be the case.

    OP got b*tch slapped by SP because OP was both stunned with surprise. Hoping that SP was not himself and was under remote control by the Decepticons. OP didn't want to damage SP if there was hope.
    In a fresh fight with no pre existing damage. I would say SP was the stronger of the two. Without even considering the rust nanites.
