    Was thinking about this today andI know there aren't any terms for it, nor do I think there were any leaders before Megaton. But what would be a term for the Decepticon leaders, if there was a need for one?

    Lord? I think that in some versions, like Transformers Prime, the deceptions put Lord before their leader's name.

    There isn't really one. Whoever's the most powerful and/or intelligent = leader. There's no formality to it like the Autobots.

    There isn't one, it was The Fallen, originally Megatronus who was a Prime.

    ^^^ True and what I was thinking with Megatron taking that name and wanting to be a PRIME so much if the novels are to be believed. As one the first of the group called Decepticons, I suppose Megatron could use PRIME..or keep his LORD title. Definitely his call.

    The only one with any real precedent doesn't get tacked on as easily as 'Prime': "Emperor of Destruction".

    There isn't one unless it's Lord.

    ^ Pretty much. Decepticons just seem to go for generic boss titles: Master, Lord, Commander, Leader and so on. And they go before the name rather than after like Prime does.

    But if they did have a Prime-y title what could it be? Rex?

    Megatron Rex.

    Damn that Megatron, he Rex everything...

    See how it might work:

    Thunderwing Rex.

    Starscream Rex.

    Steve Rex.

    Prime was a Cybertronian title that existed long before the Autobot/Decepticon division.

    I can understand movie Megatronus Prime being called the Fallen by the Autobots, but I found it a bit odd that the Decepticons also called him that.

    its not that clean cut and simple not nearly

    it takes determination guile a subtle deft touch for misderection,
    as well as suave sophistication and a flari for being both the chess master and the master mainipulator who has a speciel sixth sense for xanatose gambits and multiple pile up 30 xanatose speed chess

    as human charactrers go i believe that david xanatose comes the closest to pulling it off for the most part what with his being more chaos nuetral then evil before his change ofheart for the better and his being more amroal by his nature then actual evil in his way.

    I say megatron being megatron took the name after the crowds at the gladitorial pit shouted it,an abreveated form of the name megatronus which is the name he used as a gladiator which was also the fallens name(well megatronus prime).

    In the aligned continuity, the deceptions are fighting against the old order. The title of prime is a symbol of that order. So I see them not wanting a title as powerful a that.

    basically who ever over throws the previous leader or whoever happens to take charge as seemed to the case at times. but yeah Emperor of Destruction is the con title to have.

    Isn't Megatron referred to as "Decepticon Tyrant" on toy packaging (or at least he used to be)?

    I'd think Tyrant would be an accurate title for the Decepticon leader.
