And for my next debate... Instead og having individual characters from different comtinualities attempt to fight eachother, I've decided to some with something a bit dfferent. Who do you think would be the prevailing universe/continuaity/dimension/era of Transformers? If every universe we are currently aware of were to fight eachother, who would be the last standing? Here listed is every era, from Generation 1 to Animated: Generation 1 era: The era we're currently aware of, way back in the day. Generation 1 had multiple characters, hundreds. Ranging in height and strength. Autobots, while in some attributes are not as sffective in different continualities, managed to pull through. Decepticons ranging in size and "smarts", all led by Megatron. Then considering the powerful Unicron, who appears to be powerful in every universe, has the achilles heel originating from the Matrix of Leadership. While these Transformers from this universe have proven to be strong, they do not possess the ability to gap any new advanced technologies to enhance their weaponry in combat. Generation 1 consists of the following series, and counting Japanese continuaities G1, Headmasters, Masterforce, and Victory. The following commanders Autobot/Decepticon alike are listed within the G1 and G1-variant continualities: Optimus Prime/Convoy (Autobot) Megatron (Decepticon) Starscream (Decepticon: eventually killed) Star Convoy (Autobot) Ginrai (Autobot) Star Saber (Autobot) Ultra Magnus (Autobot) Rodimus Prime/Rodimus Convoy (Autobot) Beast Wars era: In this era, instead of transforming into a car or jet, the Maximals and Predacons transformed into beasts. While this renders efficient upon worlds with high levels of Energon, these bodies are also quite weak to heavy weapons fire. This era however is not parallel from G1. Or barely any weapons fire at all. The Beast Wars era consists of that and Beast Machines. The following Maximal/Predacon commanders are listed below: Optimus Primal (Maximal) Megatron (Predacon) Robots in Disguise era: Having very similarities to Generation 1, the TF's in this era are upon Earth in disguise to remain confidental towards the humans. These versions of Transformers, have some other unique abilities. Prime has the ability to conbine with his trailer, similar to that of Ginrai. Permitting to relinquish a heavy blow towards any adversary. The Predacons are commanded by Megatron, and the Decepticons are commanded by Scourge in this universe. Armor abilities are improved as compared to other continuaties, and so is skill. But as I've said, this era is very similar to G1. RID is a stand-alone continuality. The Commanders are listed below: Optimus Prime/Fire Convoy (Autobot) Megatron/Gigatron (Predacon) Scourge/Black Convoy (Decepticon) Unicron Trilogy era: As this universe is similar to G1 and Robots in Disguise. There are differences that makes this universe slightly parallel from the others. While the Autobots are still protagonists and Decepticons as antagonists, Autobots are formed in more of a military-style fashion as compared to the other continuaities. Even much more different, is the ability to gap in new technology... that can power up weaponry and increase the power of a Transformer's body. Mini-cons are a perfect example of this, since a Mini-con can give a larger Transformer a larger boost to his/her blaster. The ability to conbine has also increased, since some Transformers have the ability to perform a technique called "Powerlinx". The ability to combine two Autobots to obtain more Energon. Prime happens to be similar to the other universes, but this version seems to be much more ambitious, willing to push to further limits to prevail. Megatron/Galvatron happens to crave power, and excessively desires it. The final ability to gap new technologies is by activating a "Cyber Player Key". A fragment of Primus, that can be more efficient faster during combat. Certain Transformers also have the ability to combine themselves with their other body components, similar to prime's supermode. Take Energon Bulkhead as an example. The Unicron Trilogy consists of Armada, Energon, and Cybertron. Below are all of the commanders listed below: Optimus Prime/Convoy/Grand Convoy/Galaxy Convoy (Autobot) Megatron/Megatron-sama/Galvatron-sama/Master Megatron (Decepticon) Starscream (Decepticon outcast) Rodimus/Rodimus Convoy (Arielbot/Autobot) Override/Nitro Convoy (Autobot ally) Scourge/Flame Convoy (Autobot ally) Evac/Live Convoy (Autobot) Metroplex/Megalo Convoy (Autobot ally) Movie 07' era: Yet another universe that is presumably tied within the "G1 family", comes this continuaity. The Movie era is nearly the same as the G1 era, except for the overall appearances of the characters. Prime holding the Matrix of Leadership in his chest is still yet unknown. Unfortunately, similar to the BW era, Transformers in this era can be taken down with just a few hits. Which gives this era an achilles heel. However, every era has it's advantages. Below are the following commanders: Optimus prime/Convoy (Autobot) Megatron (Decepticon) Animated era: While in every other era known Prime is the commander of his own Autobot soldiers... and is the Supreme Commander, in this continuaity.. Prime isn't. Ultra Magnus, who is prime's brother is the Supreme Commander, and Prime does not command a large military unlike the other universes. Strength-wise, this is very similar to G1. I also assume that this era is also very much tied to G1... taking the G1 beginning clips in animated as proof. Animated is a stand-alone universe. Below are the commanders of the Autobot/Decepticon commanders: Ultra Magnus (Autobot) Optimus Prime (Autobot: somewhat commander) Megatron (Decepticon) So there you have it folks. Select which era do you think would beat the crap out of the others. I bet on G1, Unicron Trilogy, and the Movie universe. Who do you think would win?
