    Author's note: This story is based on the Myth Wars project that used to run here (looks like it got lost in the toyfair wipe :(  ) and which is still going strong at Transtopia. This is my take on the story (Metal Samamon has a version at Transtopia that is closely tied to post-Season 3 Beast Wars), but I would like to thank all the contributors there who gave me the inspiration for this. :)  And now, without further ado, here's the tale of a new generation of Maximals in ancient Greece, trying to prevent history from changing by unknowingly taking up the roles of characters from the various ancient tales. :D 

    Transformers: The Myth Wars

    8 million Earthern years. That's how long it has been since the crash of the Nemesis and thus the end of the Beast Wars. With the risk of the destruction of the Ark no longer a reality, the Maximals left Earth with Megatron II, returning everything to normal...

    But things went different then expected...


    Mediterranean Sea, near the coast of Greece, recon ship ‘The Second Argo’.

    Lighting flashed across the skies as the ship was rocked around by the waves; rain pouring down on it's massive wooden deck as the waves threatened to collapse it into the sea, sacrificing it to Poseidon. A lone figure was leaning on the railing, his bright blue eyes carefully scanning the surface of the water for any hints of trouble, but finding none.

    ,,Are you sure that it was here, Warpath!?”

    A gruff voice grunted as a large humanoid climbed out of the hatch leading to the captain’s cabin of the ship, carrying a large crate before setting it down on the deck. The figure sighed as he watched the humanoid named Warpath do it before looking back at the water, knowing his mechanoid friend was busy...Again.

    ,,You haven’t said a word since starting this journey. What, cat got your tongue?”

    ,,Shut it, Snarl, I’m busy.”

    Snarl frowned as he glanced at Warpath while the lightning briefly illuminated their forms; revealing their alien mechanoid natures to anyone who would have been there to see it.

    ,,No need to get all ‘badass’ on me...”

    He looked back at the sea, but then frowned as he felt a bump that wasn’t related to the waves. He looked at Warpath, and as soon as the second one struck Warpath smashed the crate and throwing a large club at Snarl; who effortlessly catched it as the giant boar grabbed two swords. But before they could do anything else the ship was thrown in the air and kept there by a mass of giant tentacles, and then a second wave came that tried to capture the two mechanoids.

    ,,Well what would you know, intel was right!”

    ,,Hmph. Let’s kill.”

    ,,Finally something we agree on again!”

    Snarl grinned as he looked at his friend before roaring a battlecry as he used his club to smash two of the tentacles, but blinked as they wrapped around his club.


    Snarl yelled as he was thrown into the air with his club, and Warpath merely grunted in annoyance as he slashed the two tentacles that had done it before Snarl crashed into the deck of the ship. He groaned as he slowly got up, and then raised his club again as Warpath slashed another couple of tentacles.

    ,,Blunt objects don’t work. Use swift or sharp weapons; keep battering them.”

    Snarl growled in annoyance at Warpath’s comment, but ejected spikes from his club none the less before he resumed battering the tentacles, nailing some of them to the deck before squishing them with his foot. Warpath briefly glanced at Snarl in smug satisfaction, but then frowned as he saw some of the tentacles withdrawing before feeling the ship was being lowered.

    ,,Something’s going on.”

    Snarl frowned as the tentacles he had been fighting were retreating as well, and then yelped as something very, VERY big crashed through the front end of the ship, obliterating it and causing a small tidalwave to smack them through the back of the ship and into the captain’s cabin, revealing a small but high tech command center. Snarl coughed out some water as Warpath got onto his knees, and growled as he glared at a three times as large creature- no, sea monster with four arms, humanoid body and a weird fish-like face. The ship rumbled again, and Snarl cursed as he looked up, seeing that a large octopus was clutching the back of the ship, it’s large eyes staring right at the pair.

    ,,TWO Krakens!?!”

    ,,No, one.”

    ,,One? What the HELL are you talking about Warpath!?!”

    Warpath narrowed his optics as he clutched his swords as the fourarmed monster roared while ripping off the mast, holding it as a spear.

    ,,No time. Now shut up and transform!”

    Snarl blinked a bit, but then smirked as he nodded before complying, changing into a large lion. Snarl roared as Warpath jumped onto his back, and immediately Snarl jumped aside to dodge a tentacle that smashed right through the spot where they had just been standing. Warpath pointed one of his swords at the octopus, and Snarl quickly jumped onto the now stuck tentacle that had just tried to smash them, running up the arm. Snarl grinned as he saw another tentacle coming and quickly dropped to a lower one before jumping onto the attacking arm, and continued doing it until they reached the head, leaving a giant knot of tentacles behind.

    ,,Now what?”


    Snarl nodded at Warpath before jumping onto the head, and then started clawing at the eyes, making the octopus roar with a strange gurgling sound as the sea-monster waded through the water towards them. Warpath narrowed his optics as he saw it coming, and Snarl gulped nervously as he saw it raise the spear.

    ,,Eeeeer, Warpath? Any hints?”

    ,,Jump back to the ship, now.”

    Snarl eagerly complied, but when he landed he got confused when he felt that Warpath was no longer on his back. He transformed back to robotmode before looking at the octopus, and his optics became wide as he saw the boar standing on the octopus’ head.

    ,,That’s it, ugly, come and get me...”

    Warpath kept his optics on the sea monster, which just angered it more until it finally decided to swing the mast at Warpath. The monster grinned as it heard a loud thud, but then blinked as he saw Warpath holding the other end. To it’s bigger surprise, Warpath quickly released the mast, jumped ontop of it and before the monster realized what was happening Warpath had already arrived at his face and slammed one of his swords deep into the creature’s eyes.


    The monster roared out in pain as it clutched it’s bleeding eye, and in this moment Warpath quickly jumped onto one of it’s hands and raised the mast before impaling the distracted octopus on it. Both Krakens screeched in pain as they trashed wildly, and Warpath simply smirked as he jumped back onto the ship where a stunned Snarl was gaping at him.

    ,,Contact Wing Convoy and tell him the job’s done.”

    ,,Eeeer, Warpath...”


    ,,We got a problem.”

    Warpath frowned a bit as Snarl said that, and turned around before his own optics went wide as he saw a huge mechanoid standing in the place of the two Krakens, the mast rammed through one of it’s legs. The worse thing, however, was that it looked very, VERY pissed...And into Snarl’s and Warpath’s direction, who looked up at the humongous mechanoid.

    ,,Oh, that.”


    Lightning illuminated the sky again, and when it passed the monster mechanoid had grabbed the ship and raised it into the air to meet his face, as if he was an adult looking at a kid’s toy boat. Snarl and Warpath stumbled back as they looked at the giant face that was easily the same size as they were, and both realized one thing...

    ,,That’s it, we’re screwed!”


    Snarl blinked as he looked at Warpath (who was looking right into the behemoth’s optics), not believing what he heard.

    ,,’Yes’? That’s it!? No big plan this time!?!”


    ,,Ah, that’s just slagging GREAT! So we’re just going to get eaten by big, green ugly and gruesome over there!?!”

    Snarl growled as he finished, but Warpath simply kept looking at the behemoth, who was troubling with anger now.

    ,,Look at the bright side.”

    ,,What bright side!?! That we won’t be bothered by it’s breath when we’re dead!?!”


    Warpath suddenly tackled Snarl as one of the behemoth’s fists crashed through the middle of the ship, barely missing them but sending them plummeting to the waters below. But before they hit the water the behemoth had catched their half of the ship again, roaring as he brought them back up before smashing the other side of the ship, the two of them barely managing to dodge it.


    Suddenly Warpath grabbed Snarl by the throat, and growled as he raised the surpised lion Maximal.

    ,,Hey, what’s the big idea!?”

    ,,I can’t help it that you don’t know when you have to do the things you have to do.”

    ,,What the hell is that supposed to me...

    Before Snarl could finish his sentence, Warpath hurled him straight at the behemoth’s face before jumping onto one of it’s incoming arms. And while the last part of their ship fall to the depths below, the lion approached the behemoth’s face with high speed.


    The behemoth groaned as he stumbled back a bit as Snarl impacted on his face, and then roared as he tried to swat him away with his other arm.


    Snarl quickly dodged the giant hand, and then smirked as he looked at the giant’s face, realizing what Warpath was talking about. He quickly dodged another swipe of the behemoth’s hand, and then clutched his club before letting electricity crackle around it. The behemoth’s optics went wide as even it’s simple mind was about to happen, and roared as he tried to punch Snarl, but Warpath quickly slammed his sword into the hand and directed it into it’s own face, making it stumble backwards as the boar jumped off.

    ,,What are you waiting for!?!”

    ,,It’s all about timing, dear friend!”

    Just as the behemoth was about to recover his stance, a roar resounded asSnarl swinged his club into it’s face. For a brief moment everything was quiet, but then it was as if lightning struck the behemoth, letting it roar out in pain as it’s flesh and metal was toasted due to the combination of water and electricity. Snarl smirked as he had managed to jump off in the brief second when the club was releasing it’s energy onto the behemoth’s surface, and saw it collapse into the water as smoke poured from it’s torched flesh-tissue. As Snarl hit the water, Warpath quickly pushed him under before diving himself as the giant’s collapse caused a massive tidalwave to rush the surface, pushing them far away from the behemoth....

    Coast of Greece

    Snarl groaned as he woke up, and shook his head as he got up, spilling some water from his audio receptors as Warpath got up as well.

    ,,Ugh...Where the hell are we...”

    ,,Hmph. Back at Greece by the looks of it.”

    Snarl blinked as he looked around with Warpath, surprised to see he was right.

    ,,Wow, talk about luck.”

    ,,Luck had nuthin’ to do with it, guys!”

    Both of them frowned as they looked up to see a horse- with wings no less- flying to the ground, gracefully landing as a gruff looking human weilding a club similiar to Snarl’s was sitting on the ground. Snarl groaned as he facepalmed while Warpath crossed his arms, glaring at the human who was eagerly returning the favour.

    ,,Oh great...My Little Pony and the fleshling knockoff of me...Don’t tell me YOU two were the guys who pulled us out of there...”

    The horse and human smirked at each other before looking back at the two dripping wet Maximals.

    ,,We did, Guardian. Now shape up and go to Olympus, my father wants to speak with you about your recent quest.”

    Warpath narrowed his optics again while Snarl crossed his arms as well.

    ,,Fine...And how are we supposed to get there?”

    ,,Not our problem! Seeya later, boys!”

    The horse smiled at them before taking off in the air, leaving a glaring Snarl and pissed Warpath behind.

    ,,Did I tell you that I hate them?”


    ,,Then let me say it again: I hate them. Let’s get going, this is going to be a loooooooong trip...”

    Snarl sighed as he swinged his club over his shoulder, and then started walking ahead while Warpath transformed and followed him, heading towards mount Olympus in the far distance...

    Half an hour later, back at the Mediterranean Sea.

    ,,Tidalwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaave...Oh Tidalwave...WAKE UP, YOU IDIOT!”

    The behemoth groaned as it opened his optics, steam now pouring from it’s skin where first the smoke was coming from. It barely managed to look at it’s chest, where a mermaid was now sitting; at first glance she appeared beautiful, but at second it was revealed that it was a more fish-like creature, but strangely still without scales. The mermaid rolled her eyes as she threw her arms up in desperation, causing the behemoth to feel more irritation at the tiny creature.

    ,,Shut up, Lorelei...”

    ,,Shut up? SHUT UP!?!”

    Tidalwave roared in pain as Lorelei send a green ball of energy into one of it’s wounds, making it cringe in pain as the mermaid smirked in sadistic satisfaction.

    ,,NEVER tell me to shut up, Tidalwave-dearest. Especially not after such a colossal failure, with so many wounds that are so easily worsened...”

    Lorelei smiled innocently as she winked at the gasping Tidalwave, before transforming into a tall humanoid creature with a weird mask. Lorelei idly walked over to it’s face, and leaned on one of it’s crest horns.

    ,,Failure, huh? Yeah, it sucks. But relax. Everything’s going to plan.”

    ,,Going to plan!? I GOT TORCHED!!!”

    Tidalwave growled in anger as it’s optics were looking at the seawitch, who merely looked back with that arrogant sweet smile she always seemed to have.

    ,,Hey, sacrifices must be made you know. But like I said, relax! Stage 1 is about to be set into motion...”

    She then smirked again as a small group of creatures that looked like her mermaid form but were as ugly as she was beautiful, and started pulling Tidalwave down as Lorelei kept looking into his optics.

    ,,...Just leave everything to the world serpent Jormungand.”

    Tidalwave narrowed his optics as he heard that name, but was excited none the less as he was almost pulled beneath water, uttering one last word before disappearing beneath the waves:

    ,,Mega Zarak...”
