    question

    what might a transformers series be like over time if it were to explore the lives of a optimsu priem and a megatron who were not actually pesoenl hatteful enemies

    that is to say that this optimus prime and this megatron would instead be intensely competitive personel rivals with each always trying to ver power the other and proove theirself asa fighter and a warrior as their rivalry and their shared deeply intense comptettitve natue drvies each of the m to push the other to new levels over time

    but they would not actually be mortal enemies with each other in a personelly imbittered hateful im gonna hunt you down to the ends of the universe and kill you with my last dieing breath kind of way?


    just using this as a example folks

    take the rivalry relaionship between goku and vegetas characters from dragon ball z and apply it to a young optimus prime and a yougn megatron

    with their knowing each other as a rival in a intensevely comptetitive way in the time before the wars

    but it being corrupt governments in both pre autobot and pre decepticon cybertronian socieites alike that turned each agaisnt the other over time.

    with neither optimus nor megatron knowing the full truth concerning the full origin of the great war between them

    but at the same time each suspects the other might very well know the missing pieces of the puzzle regarding the true origins of the great war

    and it still leving the possiblity open over time for the two to eventaully learn to reconciel their personel differances with eachother due to the war as they instead over time learn to see and even trust one another over time as both a ally and asa possible friend in the end as they both go through a form of fire forged friendship in the long run

    Eh, I would prefer the personal, hateful enemies - and by that I mean that both Optimus and Megatron hate each others' guts instead of just Megatron. Only a few Optimuses returned the animosity on a personal level (Movieverse, Beast Era, and parts of G1).

    What I would really love to see would be an Optimus and Megatron who had a Depth Charge and Rampage-type rivalry, with the Great War being Optimus's Colony Omicron/Starbase Rugby. Megatron would be the sadist who enjoyed wreaking havoc partly achieve his objectives and partly to goad Optimus, and Optimus would be the guy torn between wanting to tear Megatron's head off and not wanting to shove his troops into the meat grinder to do it.

    actually im thinking m0ore along the lines of a megatron who was driven to evil as much by corrupt society as by cruel inhuman treantment by a tormentor superior in the ranks

    basicly a corrupt cybertronian possibly unicronian being who would serve asa character counterpart to frieza in thier way

    but wiht this megatron not being genuinly evil out of personel desire or will if given the opportunity to choose for thierself on the matter

    I'd like a series showing how Megatron went from "Spartacus" to "ruthless tyrant" in TFP, other than that, meh.

    thats what im talking about actually but with him going from being the highly ultra competitive rival to being the tyrant to over time being the sparticus among his fellow cybertronians who as a reformed being has for the most part managed to gain some measure of personel redemption over time in his actually fighting for primes cause in the long run as a ally turned friend over time

    Like Optimus and Megtron as disgruntled roommates?

    Like the Autobots and Decepticons in college and being football rivals? And stealing statues from each other? And going on panty raids?

    vegeta never lost his awesomeness

    his ego in some samll way over time but never his pride or his awesomeness

    half the reason the guys so damn baddass and tough and such a wild beast i nthe fight liek he is is because of his rivalry with goku

    in its way that rivalry helped each of them to push eahcother to greater heights of skill and power levels and ability over time.

    thats how rivalries in anime tend to work out for the better over time.

    can you imagine the kind of prank wars we could havce ssen with goku and vegeta though?

    think about ift for a second

    vegeta getting pranked with itching powder and him pranking goku back wiht sneezing poweder so the guy cant eat over time lol
