    Hi! I know about Ultra and Delta Magnus, are there any more Magnuses? The Magnus design is one of my Favorite.

    Animated had a ton of Magnuses. Sentinel Magnus, Powered convoy magnus, Nova Magnus, Nominus Magnus, Zeemon Magnus. But Magnus was just a rank in that series and most of those Magnuses didnt even get a character model

    I wish Magnus was used as a class akin to Prime outside of Animated, I've always thought it should be. It just means "great" so it wouldn't be hard to integrate.

    I agree. As often as we use Maximus for "big guy", Magnus should also get some use as well. Of course, they might just be trying to avoid some condom or sex toy names as well...

    I like the familial name take instead of military ranking. At least I assume it's a familial name much like the Ambus name is.

    Me! lol

    Joking aside, I dunno. I think of Magnus as just a name more than a rank. Like what was Ultra Magnus' name before then? Just Ultra?

    Maybe we're going about it all wrong...and "Ultra" is the rank, not Magnus.

    Only applies to Animated. Other interpretations are wide open.

    As of recent, Ginrai now has the alternate name of "Magnus Prime".

    Maybe his original name wasn't Ultra but it changed when he got the Magnus rank. Kinda how Orion Pax --> Optimus Prime. If you want to continue the Greek myth naming scheme, call him Orpheus Max (journeyed to the underworld), Uranio Minor (Urania is muse of astronomy), Arche (muse of origins), Eos Phorus (god of the planet Venus) or Adon Nismus (Adonis is the god of life/death/rebirth). I'm just having fun with names. :D  I think a stellar or death/rebirth name would fit Ultra Magnus.

    My thought is based of the Energon Magnus. His Minicon is named Knock Out, so bringing that around I feel like the inner white repaint of Optimus/pre Magnus would be named Knock Out. Though now that we have a more famous Knock Out, I've been using Knock Down.

    To me a Magnus is can be Transformer who uses a suit of armor and/or using a hammer/large weapon, with the American release of Ginria being called Magnus Prime kinda solidifying it, much like Maximus can mean large bot (Either of the Fortress or Combiner type).

    To me, I always view him as a white Prime by the name Magnus. But when he put on his armor trailer, he becomes Ultra Magnus:

    And it's not just wide open in that we don't know whether or not it works the same as in Animated, either. Magnus is a higher rank than Prime in TFA. But G1 has Ultra Magnus as Optimus Prime's subordinate. TFA has "Prime" being a rank roughly equivalent to "captain" but the modern mythologies have the Primes as a supreme class essentially below only Primus. So the entire ranking system in TFA is out the window anywhere else, as we know it doesn't work the same way.
