    You know how in G1, Optimus Prime is the big heroic leader who can defeat anyone who oppoes him? Well basically this is true besides one group can stand against the Great Optimus, the cassestes since i thought about this for years and I'm now a member of TF world i just wanted to point this out and i know all of you have probably noticed this as well but Optimus has defeated each cassette or been in a stale mate at least once.

    Rumble- In attack of the Autobot's Optimus flies out of the ditch and Rumble runs away.

    Lazerbeak and Buzzsaw retreat in City of Steel after Optimus uses his arm to shoe them away.

    Ravage- gets shot shot by Optimus in Fire in the sky.

    Frenzy- in Auto Berserk after Frenzy knocks Optimus down the two are in a fight but Frenzy actually never beats him in the fight because he retreats.

    Because of these events happening i can say that Optimus can go up against the cassettes and win although he does have some difficulty

    Prime only have one enemy that can stand against him and that is Megatron.

    To even remotly think the cassettes would even dent Optimus is both ridicules and arrogant thinking.

    I know that Optimus only true enemy and the only equal he has is Megatron but I've seen several refrences about Prime being beaten by the cassettes so i made this to point out he has beaten all of them or can handle them at least one time or an other

    All the cassettes at once?


    Optimus has beaten Monstructor and Devastator by himself.

    No he didn't beat them all at once at anytime I'm just pointing at moments when has won a fight against them because I've noticed some comments and videos on some threads and on you tube about Prime always being owned by the cassettes so I'm just naming times when he has taken care of the cassettes to prove that he did.

    I thought this was a verses thread. (Optimus Prime vs Decepticon cassettes)

    That's why I asked if you meant all the cassettes verses Optimus at once.

    Prime took on pretty much the entire Decepticon force at once in TFTM and faced multiple enemies on numerous occassions. He would wipe the floor with the cassettes in an open fight. They were designed for recon, infiltration and sabotage, not combat.

    All 14+ Decepticon cassettes at the same time should be a serious threat to anyone lower down the food chain than the "heavy hitters" - so I'd say all of them could defeat Starscream easily. but they'd get nowhere with Sixshot or Galvatron.... they'd just die. They could probably defeat a Special Team leader though like Silverbolt.

    Optimus Prime only lets the cassettes think they beat him, because they're so small, and he doesn't want special services on his butt for child abuse.

    I believe technically Laserbeak has the best record of victories going against Prime compared to any other adversary.

    Prime is held at bay by Laserbeak in MTMTE pt1, and got knocked out by Ravage in MTMTE pt3. Empirical evidence says Prime is shite against tapes.

    Depends on continuity. If sunbow g1 then Prime would win. If marvel g1 Optimus would take out Rumble and frenzy before being distracted by laserbeak and ravage and shot up by buzzsaw (who took out Omega Supreme remember)
    In my fan-universe, the casseticons (led by soundwave) are a team of highly skilled espionage and recon experts so Prime would hard hard goings against anyone of them let alone them all

    The cassettes might be able to get the drop on Prime in an ambush, but in a straight-up fight? It'd be like Andre the Giant taking on Lindsay Lohan.

    Yep. Laserbeak nearly killed Prime as well.


    :lol  Late run Buzzsaw would pwn Optimus Prime as a one hit kill. Especially if he has the other tapes to distract so he can get behind Prime. He killed Omega Supreme with one shot, he can take out Optimus.

    I personally see most TF universes as not really having set "power levels" where X will always beat Y. I think given the right circumstances, almost anyone could beat anyone else. Now there are clear exceptions: IDW Sixshot or Overlord, Prime Megatron, etc are clearly tiers above the average character.

    Buzzsaw didn't kill Omega, Starscream did. Buzzsaw just knocked him down.

    Still pretty damn impressive, though.
