    Would anyone be willing to show me the feats of IDW Megatron? Autobot and Decepticon would be good, and I'm aware of some of the higher end feats such as surviving a point-blank blast from a Dead Universe infused Shockwave (who is stated to be a universal threat). Are there any others up to that scale

    I'd say having a higher body count than Stalin, Pol Pot and Mao combined is quite a feat.

    Pre-Earth tank body:
    - Champion of the underground gladiator rings
    - Killed Sentinel Prime in his Apex Armor
    - Defeated Overlord in sparring multiple times
    - Defeated Starscream despite Starscream being juiced on Ore-13

    Infiltration/AHM gun body:
    - Brushed off a jet fighter crashing directly into him.

    Transformers (2009) stealth bomber body:
    - Outflew Starscream immediately after getting a new flier body for the first time (although Starscream was panicking badly at the time)
    - Survived a satellite being dropped on him from space without a scratch.
    - Stated he could level an entire city with his fusion cannon

    MTMTE tank body:
    - Can access a black hole and use antimatter as a weapon. We've never seen this at full-power though, as it's incredibly dangerous to himself as well.
    - Took apart the entire DJD with no weapons

    That's good, anymore of note? The Vs. Wikia lists him as being a multiversal tier and I am curious to see how?

    Because that site is full of ******s that highball everything, ignore context, and deny the existence of outliers. Megatron's antimatter attack on the DJD was going to destroy the planet they were on and Megatron was also going to die. That means a planet-level force could've killed him. You could say he was weakened by that point of the story but as was mentioned above his highest stated-level of power was able to level a human city without being fully charged.

    This is ******ed power scaling based on Shockwave w/ the ores blasting Megs. VSBattles always assumes that every attack in fiction is the most powerful it could be which ignores common sense and writing trends. Hell, let's grant that Megatron scales to Optimus Prime who killed Nemesis Prime controlling the Dead Universe. That doesn't mean goddamn Skywarp, Jazz or Whirl are that powerful. VSBattles is horrible with Transformers profiles.

    No problem. Just look around their pages yourself though. Literally every character from IDW they rate as a universe-killer. Every. Single. Profile. And you can tell how bad it is based on the reasoning they use:
    -Skywarp is universe level because he isn't much weaker than Starscream
    -Starscream is universe level because he survived a shot from Megatron's cannon (explicitly called a city-killing weapon in-universe)
    -Headstrong is universe level because he's superior to Starscream

    Major freaking oof.

    Where would you place Megatron at least in terms of power and durability

    Large City/Mountain level w/ primary cannon
    Planet level w/ antimatter
    Country level durability at least scaling from Optimus tanking the Toraxxis mega refinery explosion and both getting crushed by Titans

    Universe level I guess scaling from Nova Prime though I don’t know if controlling the Dead Universe means the guy would have universe level physical durability.

    You're not listing his mental resistance of/physical destruction of the D-Void as an accomplishment? Or all the shit Optimus Prime did to him that he survived when they were reminiscing on their old battles?

    Even his convincing Orion Pax to go against the Senate was a huge accomplishment (and a morally unambiguous one!)

    When you're a galactic conqueror doing your thing on a planet wide scale, probably not. Stalin, Hitler and those numbers are small potatoes.
