    Not just DOTM but almost all Transformers continuities. And 90% of the time, it's not even Megatron aka Galvatron who destroys him.

    DOTM, TF Animated and Transformers G1 are excellent examples.

    I don't know with Galvatron it was actually kind of cool because Starscream had been asking for it for a very long time. I mean come on even as kids I'm sure we all wondered why Megatron never blasted the weaselly back stabber.

    Plus in so many of the continuities all they can do is get rid of his physical body since his spark lives on without a body. Blast his body to tiny bits and he just keeps turning up. About the only character who can top that was Waspinator since Waspintor should have been killed several times over but he always came back from repairs.

    Movie Starscream I'll give you that one since it was super lame to have the no no no no no no no kid kill him.

    Well, how do you expect him to die? For me, Starscream getting his head blown off by the guy he thought he had beat has always been appropriately ironic end. Spending his whole life stabbing Decepticon backs and regarding humans as mere insects just to get killed in battle against some Autobot just seems weird.

    Personally, the only changes I'd make to Screamer's death in DotM would be to have a few lines about contempt for/superiority over Sam and humans as a whole earlier in the film (i.e. in Africa and/or DC) and to not show it in the damn trailer.

    I will say though... Starscream lasted a whole lot longer in battle unlike Soundwave, Shockwave, Barricade and Megatron. He at least deserves props for that.

    :rolleyes2 

    A well thought out response, I'm certain. I don't get the correlation with Winnie the Pooh, though, and I didn't realize that poor Pooh was a bitch, as you so eloquently put it.

    Starscream endures. Blast him to nothingness and his spark remains.

    Why does he always die like a bitch? Because nine times out of ten they always portay him as a bitch. How else is a bitch supposed to die but like/as one?
    To me the more important question is why should he always be portrayed as a bitch to begin with?
    The only thing I find rediculous about that scene is that the blast was seemingly so huge and yet the crater left behind was so small. And that Optimus and Megatron didn't seem to have even bothered to step back to a safe distance.
    Apart from that though, like a boss indeed.

    It might have been cool if Sentinel Prime killed him. Have Starscream disagree with the plan or do something that would jeopardize the plan then Sentinel kills him because the plan to revive Cybertron goes beyond the concept of Autobot or Decepticon to Sentinel.

    Is there a written rule that states that Starscream has to be killed by Megatron/Galvatron?

    TT:TM - Disintegrated by Galvatron.
    Beast Wars (if you wish to count this) - A Starscream-possessed Waspinator is left to 'die' in an energon explosion by Primal.
    Armada - Defies Galvatron and Unicron, shouting and blasting his lasers into space. Unicron obliterates him. Hardly the death of a b**ch. Quite the opposite.
    Energon - Apparently sacrificed himself, following Galvatron into the center of a star.
    Cybertron - Did Starscream ever die in Cybertron? I can't recall.
    Bayformers - Survives almost the entire trilogy, killed by Sam/NEST/Que's bomb.
    Animated - Megatron kills him several times for comedic effect, only for him to be brought back online and then permanently offlined by having Prowl/Jazz remove the shard of the AllSpark from his being.
    TFP - TBA

    Didn't think so.

    Oops.

    Yeah, that was sort of what I was going for. "Survives 2 and 3/4 of a trilogy". :lol
