    I think these 2 would make an interesting pair with their different personalities and all. How about you?

    Prowl and Prime really aren't that different, they both appreciate discipline and investigation, the only way they really differ is that Prowl values life more than Prime.

    I think they both value life absolutely equally, it's just the Prowl is more perceptive than Prime, which is why he was able to sense some kind of spark in the dinobots, whereas Prime still thought of them as simple mechanoids gone awry...

    When I say life, I should've specified organic, what with his "nature fetish".

    Well, having a "nature fetish" doesn't make you value life more than the other, I'd say. :) 
    But that's just a nitpick on my side, so I apologize.

    Well, look at how Prime would've handled the dinobots, and how Prowl ended up doing so.

    Do you refer the old episode where the Dinobots were introduced for the first time in TF: Animated?
    I already covered it, pointing out that Prowl simply is more perceptive than Prime. Everybody believed the Dinobots to be simply machines with an A.I. gone berserk. It would have been like shutting off Tutor-Bot, if he attacked Sari. Nobody would care for poor Tutor-Bot. :)

    Prowl strikes me as the type of character that prefers to work alone if he can, whilst Optimus makes an effort to get everyone to work together. Aside from that, they both are serious, no nonsense characters.

    I think that has to do with Prowl's hightened senses towards sentient life and how it works. They both value life equally, Prowl can just see life where it's hidden, like with the Dinobots.

    I think that's why they would never have a team up in an episode, they would be too boring and have no comedy element. All the little kids will be bored.

    That's not to say that I don't like their characters...

    Funnily enough, Animated Prime and Animated Grimlock will be teaming up together in a coming episode. :)

    i don't think it's just Prowl, Prime needs an episode wherehe works with other bots and proves he's not a jerk.

    all the other Autobots have proved it in past episodes including grumpy old Ratchet who was never as much a jerk Prime has seemed in past episodes.

    Maybe it'll be Megatron rising part two, we'll have to see.

    Aside from Megatron Rising (where he really had justified reasons), where has Prime ever shown to be a "jerk"? He's actually quite condolescing, has advices for his autobot fellows, and is ground-headed. The only vallable critique is that there are only like 1 or 2 episodes out of 13 who have the spotlights on him.
