    I was browsing Animated videos, when I watched the Japanese intro. Way better than ours, that's for sure.

    But there was one thing that got me. Near the end, Optimus flys towards a massive, flaming, black mass in the sky. That got me thinking. Which TF has fire ascociated with them? So if Season 4 would've happened, could there have been an Animated The Fallen?

    Crazy idea, I know.

    I think it's supposed to be a silhouette of Megatron.

    I think it's a stylized Megatron, or maybe 'generic Decepticon threat'.

    I'm more curious about the story behind creepy shadow cloak guy near the start of the intro myself.

    Yeah, I'd love to know what his story is.

    The flaming figure is thought to be either Megatron or possibly the Lugnut Supremes.


    If you want a real lost character though, keep an eye out for when Blackout shows up in the second version of the intro with a second Blackout - artistic license or Animated Grindor?


    I'd not put too much stock into an intro though that features stuff like Ironhide fighting Blitzwing or Arcee and Blackarachnia fighting it out under the water.

    Maybe both mysterious figures are The Fallen?

    Derrick J Wyatt said on his formspring that he decided the dark cloaked figure in the intro is Violen Jiger.

    Ah, TF Evo, always making the characters look waaaaay better.
    Anyway, based on its silhouette, it oddly looks like Sentinel Prime with the horn and all. Although, it's probably just Megatron.

    Really?!!!? Wait, which one? the cloaked one from the beginning or the BIG one? Because i always thought that the BIG one was a Shadowed MEgatron. How cool would have been seeing ViolenJiger in Animated Style. T.T

    The cloaked one, sorry.

    and really, there is a hell of a resemblance in the pose.

    I could accept that. It's as good or better than any other answer I've seen so far. Interesting that the Animated version is far less monstrous-looking though.

    It is the Enigma Of Mystery

    P.S. All jokes aside I love transformers evo (the song that is in the intro). Whenever i watch animated i always play this beforehand and skip the us intro.

    It's a Japanese intro, they seem to be big on using animation that is never seen in the series unlike American shows where very little is new animation and most of it is taken directly from episodes.

    Full Metal Alchemist still uses the original intros in the American dub version so you can see how non of the into animation is ever used in the series. This often includes really cool fight scenes with Greed in places we never see till after he dies. Kinda like the fight scenes from Transformers Animated such as the one with Arcee that we never actually see her fighting. I think they just wanted an excuse to animate her with her swords from the toy sense they wouldn't be seen in the series if they didn't put it in the intro.

    I always find the Japanese intro amusing if only because Arcee got to do more in the intro than in the entirety of the series.

    The Japanese intro. Characters that don't exist are given more prominence than characters who do. Which is weird, because I would think the Japanese would love Sari. I guess it's because there aren't any panty-shots of her. Crazy Japanese.

    Also, Arcee and Ironhide are very important characters. Except in the show itself.
