** That might have something to do with their lives- the lives of most cybertronians, in the modern era, are terrible- a constant war that has raged for millions of years with no end in sight, the very supplies necessary to keep their race from extinction rapidly depleting, their homeworld a desolate wasteland of ruined scrap and rubble... It's possible that the Transformers believe so strongly in the promise of a better life after death that they almost look forward to it. The prospect of finally laying down one's burdens, stopping the fight, and experiencing possibly the first peace in their entire lives... that's a prospect that human religions have espoused for thousands of years.




to:

** If Megatron's backstory is what we think it is, the Decepticon cause started thanks to Caste-based oppression. The very concept of flight could represent freedom, which is what the Decepticons were originally fighting for, and even if the ideals of the cause no longer apply, it could be a cultural thing for Decepticons to prefer flight-based modes.



** Furthermore, we later learned that the reason the Decepticons came to earth in the first place was because Starscream picked up an Autobot transmission. If Starscream was able to pick it up, then someone like Soundwave would ''definitely'' be able to decipher secure Autobot transmissions.




to:

** Or, he saw all the stuff that Starscream got up to while NOT where Megatron could see him- messing with Dark Energon, creating a legion of clones of himself, inspiring Airachnid to attempt assassination via Insecticon, giving away Cybertronian secrets to humans, acquiring his own Iacon Relics (the Apex Armor comes to mind), and thought that while Starscream plotting on the bridge of the Nemesis is bad, it's ''way'' better than having him be his own freelance agent of chaos. Keep your enemies close, and all that.


Added DiffLines:

** Though the possibility of undead Metroplex is enough to give one nightmares... could he fly? The zombies were shown flying to the Space Bridge... but not every Cybertronian (even Decepticons) can fly. So even though there were lots who left Cybertron for the Space Bridge... does this mean that there are hordes of Dark Energon infused Zombies wandering Cybertron's wrecked cities?


Added DiffLines:

*** The above person is ''probably'' not psychic, but it does seem like the kind of cold, ruthless thing she would do- to siphon off all of [[spoiler: Breakdown's]] Energon for her own needs so she doesn't end up like we see Starscream later on, scrabbling for crumbs of Energon. That, or MECH recovered it, based on Starscream pointing out the need for Energon as a fuel source. If they can completely secure and remove a Cybertronian body in just a few minutes, getting the Energon spilled is probably not much of a challenge.

Added DiffLines:

* In a meta-example, one of Megatron's first lines is "Decepticons, I have returned.". This is a clever nod to how much this is the first cartoon since the original series that Frank Welker voiced Megatron. [[note]]He did reprise the role for the video games based on the Michael Bay films from before the show came out, but it's not the same since he originally auditioned to reprise the role for the movies.[[/note]]

* Bulkhead said that he cannot remember seeing Optimus ever laughing or even smiling. This is due to the incredible weight of being a Prime and commanding the surviving Autobots. Even when he left earth, he did not smile. [[spoiler: When Prime bids farewell to his friends, he leaves with a subtle smile on his face. He can finally rest easy knowing not only that the peace he fought so hard for has finally been achieved, but also that, with the lineage of the primes ending with him, no one else will ever have to shoulder the incredible responsibility and stress he had to.]]

* When it was revealed that Predacons had inspired much of Earth's folklore, how come no-one looked to said tales or revealed common knowledge about them to find out any weaknesses that a Predacon might posses? For instance it is common knowledge that a dragons weak spot is its heart and Predaking had a circle on his chest that was heavily implied to be more VUNERABLE than the rest of him, yet NO-ONE struck him there ONCE. But if it did it wouldn't of changed the series to drasticly, especially if it was done before he was reaveled to be sentient as there would have been more clones on the way

The Autobots may be fully aware that he is weak at the heart but is not strong enough to exploit it, as he's not only fast enough to dodge blasts in dragon form, rmored enough to resist them altogether, but he's also an offensive fighter that strikes first, leaving them no time to try it. After all, we know all of Mike Tyson or Bruce Lee's weaknesses, that doesn't mean we can beat them.

to:

* I've noticed something interesting in the way the Transformers in this franchise view death. When the Autobots heard about Megatron raising undead soldiers, including Cliffjumper, they were horrified (obviously), but then I noticed a larger pattern. Knockout didn't care about Airachnid killing Breakdown but was incensed at Silas defiling his body by using it as a suit. Dreadwing didn't care that Bumblebee was the one who killed Skyquake, but he became enraged when Starscream tried to turn him into a zombie. My conclusion from these observations: Cybertronians, especially Decepticons, view the defiling of a corpse as a greater atrocity than the actual killing of a Transformer.

*** Well, yeah. Arcee and Optimus only had second-hand contact with Dark Energon that was diluted with other substances (non-Energon fluids from the zombies, soot and ash from the volcano). Bee, however, spent a good portion of an episode with a concentrated amount of undiluted Dark Energon in his hand.
