    I got to admit and I am also thankful about my Transformers knowledge. Before I got back Transformers, I totally forgot they were, until the Transformers Movie in 2007 came out, that got me back into Transformers but not officially back. Until I watched TF:TM 86 on youtube, got me back in 2009. Since then, I got hooked back in Transformers, didn't know why they killed most of the Autobots in the movie because of toy release, I know more stuff right now, not an expert per se, but better than I was, I read the comics here and there (IDW). So yeah I learned a lot by reading comments and posts from fellow members in TFW2005

    Is this why you make question threads a couple of times a week in TFGD?

    Not gonna lie, the threads you make baffle me, and I don't know why you post all of them in General Discussion. They're entertaining though, kudos on that.

    doesnt count, he never died there

    debatable
    I would say he wasnt really alive there, so how could he die again?

    I do not recall him dieing in RID, but I admit I haven't seen that series in a long time.

    btw, you seem to have forgotten a few of the comics.

    Optimus Primal is not Optimus Prime. I never understood why people thought that when the end of season 2 (BW) shows that he is a different bot altogether.

    RiD Optimus didn't die. He's the only Optimus in TF history to not die.

    And...Rescue Bots? You mean Prime, right?

    He makes reference to the fact that Prime and the other Autobots are the Maximal ancestors. He also "housed" OP's spark (along with his own individual spark) until they were able to repair his body. All while maintaining that they are 2 different, distinguishable bots.

    Alright, I'll take a stab at this:

    The question was how many times has Optimus died and been resurrected throughout the franchise? This would only apply to continuities where he was definitely dead, and later was brought back by some means.

    G1 Sunbow: He died in the movie, was resurrected by Quintessons on the maussoleum ship, where he died again and was brought back again in "The Return of Optimus Prime." So 2 so far.

    G1 Marvel: He dies in issue 24 and is brought back later as a powermaster. So no we're up to three.

    G2 Marvel: He was totally consumed and destroyed by the swarm which spread the wisdom of the Matrix across it. After which said form recreated him on Earth. running total: 4

    BW Doesn't count.
    BM Doesn't count.

    G1 Dreamwave: We first see Optimus lying "dead" in a military facility where Spike drops the a peice of the Matrix into his chest, resurrecting him.

    Running total: 5

    RID: Didn't die.
    Armada/Energon/Cybertron: Not really sure. I've seen all three, but I don't recall him actually dying in any of those. In either cartoon or comic.

    Revenge of the Fallen: Optimus is resurrected with the Matrix.

    Running total: 6

    IDW: He never really died in IDW, the "Death of Optimus Prime" issue's story refers to a metaphorical death as he had returned to being called Orion Pax, and was leaving behind his life as Optimus Prime. One could argue that Megatron killed him back in Escalation, but since he downloaded his personality into the trailer unit, he was never really dead to begin with.

    Animated: Didn't die.
    Prime: Was killed when the base was destroyed and brought back by the Forge of Solis Prime.

    Running total: 7

    Rescue Bots: Optimus has not died in Rescue Bots.

    Regeneration One: Everyone died in RG1, and stayed dead, so that doesn't count.

    So, that's a total of 7 times throughout the history of Transformers that Optimus Prime has died and been resurrected.

    This does not account for any of the Japanese series since I have not seen any of them.

    He most definitely DID die in Armada.

    He also died in the third(?) episode of Animated, and Sari brought him back to life.

    As for Japanese, he died in Headmasters and even stayed dead, I believe.

    In fact, his Animated death is the shortest one out of all series. Less than 75 seconds I believe.
