    so I decoded the writing on banzai-tron's hip fins and it reads "to the victor go the profits" which makes sense considering his biography but why did they write it in autobot text when he's a decepticon?

    Sounds like a paraphrasing of the old latin proverb "Ad victorem spolias", which only raises more questions...

    It's his G1 motto:

    Banzai-Tron - 1990 Transformers - TFW2005

    As for why it is in Autobot... got me. It's purely a case of using Cybertronian font, I don't think anything is meant by it. Probably a creative oversight.

    Or maybe he wants his enemies to know who they're dealing with.

    Or maybe he hails from an era before the advent of the written Decepticon language.
