The TFP Optimus Prime VS Megatron Dynamics Is The Best In any TF continuity, the rivalry of dynamics between Optimus Prime and Megatron are always one of the most attractive element of the show, mostly because they are the leaders of heroes and villains. But in TFP, that dynamic has been push to higher and better than before. The fact they used to be friends and comrades in battle makes the rivalry a little sad and emotionally moving as Optimus has to struggle to bring down someone who he once regarded as a brother. More importantly, what Megatron feels toward Optimus isn't simple hatred, he enjoys fighting Optimus both physically and intelligently. As he put it, he was hardly surprised that Optimus figured out his plan as they had been at it for a long time, which means while Megatron is as Ratchet points out, extremely arrogant, but he knows how well Optimus knows and understands him, thus making their opposition extremely challenging, and it's obvious that he finds it entertaining. As egoistical as Megatron is, we've also been shown his strength and intelligence so his arrogance is justified to a degree, making him a worthy adversary to the main hero of the show, Optimus Prime. As Megatron himself said it in "Darkness Rising Pt. 5" Optimus Prime never disappoints him, and we've seen how often he criticizes and finds his Decepticon underlings disappointing him, which demonstrates to us how highly Megatron thinks of Optimus. Furthermore Megatron's consideration that only he deserves to be the one to take down Optimus is an acknowledgment of how strong Optimus is, which proves to us Optimus's worth. The challenge Megatron represents to Optimus is also great. Although Optimus understands how Megatron thinks very well, it's also nearly impossible for Optimus to defeat Megatron as the two battle they had so far in the series has shown Megatron is physically stronger than Optimus, but of course it doesn't mean Optimus have no chance of winning against Megatron. The uncertainty of who can be the winner between two leaders who are similar or equals in so many ways but completely different in others is the major element that makes this series so exciting. The fight they had in "One Shall Fall" is probably the best fight scene between Optimus and Megatron in all TF continuities so far. This relationship rivalry between them may be traditional, but it has never been this good, making TFP more enjoyable than all previous TF series. How does everyone here think?
