    After seeing Darkness Rising for the 5th time with my son. I think I found a way for them to be able to bring cliffjumper back. Since he was already dead and brought back to life with dark energon. It would reason to believe a pure energon explosion like that would wash the dark energon from his body, and well bring him back to life. Star Sream has said that Energon is an amazing power supply. A plot loop hole if I saw one before. What are your thoughts. :crazy: 


    PS. where in the world is the stasis lock for this characters. I thought that it was suppose to stop them from dieing like that in the first place. :wtf:

    Even if that were true the writers did say once a character's dead in TFP that character stays dead. Besides most of Cliffjumper's body was blown up to a maximum degree to the point of no recovery.

    well, if the dark energon was the only thing keeping him alive, it being washed away would...kill him again, no? Plus, it's only half his body...him coming back like that, waking up in horrible pain would be terrible.

    Overall, they said dead characters stay dead, I want to believe they'd keep the first dead character dead at least. Plus, I don't believe in the logic--nor do I think there is any body left where the Energon explosion happened to come back to life.

    No.

    And it's not a plot hole.

    Washing away Dark Energon wouldn't bring him back. He has no Spark, that is why he's dead. Dark Energon turned his lifeless body into a Cybertronian zombie.

    Now, if the writers wanted him to come back, why wouldn't they choose cloning? They just showed that it can be done.

    I bet Arcee has some of Cliff's body parts stashed away somewhere. :ev: 

    ... ahem. What were we talking about already?

    The problem is that his spark has already been extinguished. What good would the Dark Energon being purged from Cliff's body serve, if his body is already lifeless?

    :lol  You know she could always find a way to bring him back Frankenstien style with Cliff's parts. :lol  She could use Ratchet's help and have Bulk as an oversized Igor. :lol

    And how would they pay The Rock? That alone doomed the character from the start.

    Uh, no. For one, he was cut in half. He'd still be dead. The Drak Energon reanimated his corpse, it never gave him a his mind or Spark back. Plus, the explosion itself would have killed him anyway, considering a smaller one put him on death's door to begin with.

    Cliff' got blown to atoms way back in Darkness Rising. I'd be genuinely surprised if there was anything left.

    If his body was still intact, that might work but as others have pointed out, he got cut in half AND blown up. He's not coming back, at least, not in his original body.

    People need to remember Dark Energon does not bring someone back to life. It reanimates their corpse. That is not the same as life.

    He died, Dark energon turned him into zombie. All taking all of the Dark Energon from his body would do is let him rest in peace in the Well of Allsparks.

    Unless you revive them quick enough to reverse brain-death.

    Get on it, Ratchet West.

    Even if Cliffjumper was by some divine stroke of luck revived from that, he would still bleed out due to the fact that he's missing more than half of his body.

    It's a nice idea, but I think it's a little too much of a stretch...

    Even though you never know! Hasbro could decide to release another Cliff toy and demand the writers of Prime bring him back in some wacky way!
