    What if there was a new element to the Optimus Prime-Megatron rivalry, namely a female one? There’s this fembot whom they both love, who inspires them to revolt against their leaders, but ends up a fatal casualty of the Autobot-Decepticon split, which leads to the two blaming each other for her death and making their war more personal for them.

    It was done in ANIMATED between Optimus and Sentinel Prime, so it wouldn’t be anything unprecedented. It would be a relatively new dimension to their rivalry, and would provide some character development: both Megatron and Optimus try to honour their love’s memory by respectively destroying and protecting the universe, as well as gunning for each other.


    Or is it way too bishojo for TF tastes? I can understand that, when you look at SMALLVILLE its Clark-Lana-Lex affair dragged on way too long for my taste. A good romance needs to be kept short-term, and have its consequences dealt with and resolved quickly; stretching it out would mess things up really badly.

    It’s just an idea. It would be an interesting one though...

    They did. Nightbird.

    But in that should they be in a love triangle? Lord no. They're leaders in a factional conflict that's gone on for ages and essentially destroyed their entire world. Having them fight over a girl (when there's already much higher stakes) is as ludicrous as having them settle their dispute with a video game... to the death! Oh wait, that happened, but the answer to your question is still no.

    It worked in Animated because the three in question were already close comrades (two of whom essentially disliked eachother), but it could really only work in the movieverse with Megatron and Optimus, and even there it would be really, really stupid.

    The answer is the same as the one to the question "Should you keep making new threads?"

    These questions are like, dredged out of the dirt.

    Still a better love story than Twilight.

    But if they fight over anyone it'll be over Elita-1.

    Hey I know let's set Transformers in High School and the two factions are just the civics club and one of the sports teams and Megatron and Prime are the club president/captain and there's only enough funding for one of them so they're rivals WOULDN'T THAT BE WACKY?!

    Figthing over a girl, "sigh" that probably would't work, can't see anyhow. Unless if it was like a totally different vision of a series, and by that I mean something really unexpected.

    Who would it be, though? Arcee? Elita-1? Others I don't know about?
    I just can't see a way this could work without being utterly ridiculous.

    Nnnnnnnoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

    I thought them being brothers originally in Bayformers was bad enough. This is the worst idea ever. You should feel terrible.

    Their brothers in a metaphorical way, not literally.
