    So, we saw three Primes during the movies and all of them displayed their telekinetic abilities.

    The Fallen: Raised rocks and military vehicles to air.
    Sentinel: Can control his pillars without touching them.
    Optimus: He conveniently got all Jetfire's parts just to where he wanted them.

    And then all three of them can move the Matrix without touching it (though one may argue it's something to do with the Matrix itself)

    Tfwiki has also have an entry about that subject: Telekinesis - Transformers Wiki

    So i wonder do Optimus Prime's telekinetic powers really exist? If so, how much powerful he is? Couldn't he use those powers more in the movies? Say, for example, when he trapped in those ropes? Was it another idea that is forgotten? What do you think?

    I think Optimus' case wasn't really Telekinesis, more like magnets "Jolt, electrify!"
    The Fallen absolutely has Telekinesis
    And Sentinel... Can't say for sure.

    Who needs telekenesis when you have the ability to kill them all.

    Ok, i'm not saying events in the trilogy generally make much sense but then how the hell Jetfire's parts knew where they're gonna attach on Optimus? Like faceplate goes to face, jet engines goes o back, weapons goes to hands etc.? Somebody should have to control it. Jolt's electrifying caused the magnetic field necessary to move those parts, but their perfect combination with prime was a more precise and calculated job.

    Exactly. Optimus is a killing machine without any sort of upgrade. With Jetfire's parts, and the magic trailer, he's unstopable.

    It's kind of implied that Jolt did all that.

    Implied nothing. Ratchet tells him to do all that.

    And the only Prime with telekinetic powers was The Fallen. Both the Pillars and the Matrix floated on their own. The movement that the Prime's did always came from a physical push, likely against whatever cushion of energy the objects had. Anyone could have done it.

    It's not telekinesis.

    It's the Force.

    *The Fallen faces off against Optimus and compares Prime's gun to his staff*

    The Fallen: I see your Schwartz is as big as mine!

    The Jolt combining prime and Jetfire made no sense to me.

    The scene in which Ratchet and Jolt transfer the energon from Jetfire's spark to Optimus is done physically. The parts from Jetfire combining can be attributed to what Sentinel told Mearing in DOTM, that the pillars ( as well as other TF tech), defies our laws of physics.

    If you recall on the moon Ratchet was able to manipulate the pillars, where they appeared to float in an environment with 0.1 the gravity of Earth. IMO, it appears that certain TF technology has the ability to repel the forces of gravity by opposing the magnetic field of whatever planet they are on.

    Sentinel would have to know how this works in order to anchor the control pillar to the Earth's core. He didn't state this, but in order to anchor the control pillar, he would have had to somehow manipulate the core's magnetic field, which exists due to it spinning inside the Earth.

    The Fallen did the same thing. He wasn't using telekinesis, he was manipulating the effect of Earth's gravitational field on different objects ( tanks, rocks, ext.)

    It's how the Decepticon battle cruisers and fighters were able to fly above Chicago, then stop midair and flip around. The G-forces exerted during those maneuvers would have been 9+, and would have likely killed a human inside when they happened.

    Yeah, most of you seem to have forgotten this... he clearly showed this ability during this scene. You can even make the case that Ratchet showed it to some extent aboard the Ark.

    The Matrix and the Pillars float by themselves, The Fallen had telekinetic powers because he's a damn robotic Sith Lord, Jolt was magnetics.

    I attributed that to the Matrix just being able to float. It was floating on the ground when Optimus Prime dropped it before he picked it back up.
