    So after some thought today I began wondering who had actually won their fateful fight in the movie. However, I still believe Megatron was the one who won. Yes, Prime delivered the final blow, but he died, and Megatron lived. That's a win for Megs in my opinion.

    Symantics. Either way they were both gone. I figure Megatron would havd died later anyways.

    I think its the same with most of their TV fights - Optimus. Frankly, I don;t blame Hot Rod because the gun that Megatron eventually used was hidden from Optimus' view.

    This bout was ruled a Draw by the judges by reason of Simultaneous Knockout!

    Who knows if Megs would have lived. I suspect Starscream kicks are not the most effective mode of repair.

    Prime won. Megatron had help, and was still only able to give Prime a hole in his side. Prime was fine, untill the only Cybertronian scientist unable to fix a hole in a robot got his hands on him.

    I'd say Megatron. Weak as he was, had he made it to Cybertron, he'd have been rebuilt and repaired.
    Prime had no chance.

    Hmm.

    No doubt in my mind that Prime lost the actual fight. He died, and Megatron (although changed into Galvatron) lived to fight another day.

    However... Prime's reasoning for fighing wasn't necessarily to kill Megatron. No, it was simply to stop him and repel the Decepticon slaughter of Autobot city. In that aspect he succeeded.

    Prime won the fight. Megatron fatally wounded Prime, but Prime clobbered him off the... building thing they were fighting on. Winning a fight doesn't always mean 'the guy still alive'.

    G1 Megatron was, and always shall be a loser for declaring his intention to crush Prime with his bear hands and almost immediately do the opposite via the use of sharp rubble, cannon, CONVIENIENT LIGHTSABER and discarded gun.

    Loser.

    I say Prime won the fight, but at the cost of not only his life, but the lives of other Autobots.

    I think that even though he died, I think Prime won. He did cause the Decepticons to retreat, so in essence, he did what he set out to do, only it ended up costing his life.

    Like was said, Prime's objective wasn't to win a fight with Megs, but to repel the Decepticons. Prime won.

    Prime lost. That isn't to say he wasn't the superior combatant, but the results speak for themselves. As with everything else, the best man doesn't always take the win. And no, Hotrod's interference doesn't change anything. It simply demonstrates that while Prime is noble, and in many ways the better fighter, his compassion can be played against him

    Of course, Starscream kicked Megs (wounded) ass... And then of course, Galvy returned the favour in kind. Its the final result that counts.

    Optimus Prime is the greatest of ALL TIME.



    I think it was a draw.

    Just because Megs woulda made it back to Cybertron, there's no way of knowing whether or not he could be repaired. Perhaps he woulda died too. Both came away from the fight barely alive. Megatron got lucky in that Unicron saved his sorry ass. But Prime did single-hadedly turn the tide and made the 'Cons retreat. He put an end to that battle, kicked Meg's butt up and down Autobot City and then gave his life to protect others.


    The real question is: Who stopped Devastator? Dinbots didn't do it....????? Slag got one good shot in.

    If you look at it in the movie, yes Prime won on his own terms.

    But - what if Hot Rod hadn't been there?

    It's my belief that Megatron would have still got off a shot at Prime with the gun (which was hidden from his view).
