* How exactly did Dinobot II's death kill him? He had half of Rampage's immortal spark. While Rampage dying made sense, given he experienced something that likely would've killed a normal Transformer BEFORE the blade went through his spark (as their beast modes are specifically to PROTECT them from that) and heck, maybe it worked BECAUSE half of his Spark was in Rampage at the time. So how exactly did just getting caught in the bridge explosion do Dinobot II in?

**** New explanation, then- Rampage's indestructible spark and cunning mind allowed him to evade capture on several occasions. Plus, no-one ever said he personally slaughtered everyone on Colony Omicron- he could've rigged a kind of explosive device to level the colony, as Optimus said he did. Nothing said he just ran loose on a mad [[AccidentalPun rampage]]- he could've been more of a stealthy mass murderer who just happened to also be immortal and massive, so it took Depth Charge several years to track him down.

*** Colony Omicron being a human colony is Fanon. Check the TF wiki, there's nothing that indicates that Colony Omicron was a human colony. It say, quote, "Colony Omicron was a Maximal colony established some three centuries after the Great War. Protoform X was incarcerated at the colony but he escaped and destroyed it, along with every Transformer. The only survivor was the security chief, Depth Charge. Haunted by the massacre and feeling guilty, Depth Charge spent four stellar cycles hunting down X."

** To answer the original question, it's that Omicron was a ''human'' colony, though this wasn't made clear in the show. Basically, it was a human colony, and Depth Charge was responsible for guarding it- which explains why there would be a massive body count, and why Depth Charge would blame himself so much.

**** If you notice, Dinobot does receive damage before getting involved in that conflict which played a part in it. Also several times during the battle, Dinobot resists/refuses to go into stasis lock even after Sentinel implores him to. In fact, Dinobot actually has to override it so Sentinel doesn't automatically send him into stasis lock, which is a safety net for both Maximals and Predacons to prevent death.

** WordOfGod is apparently that Omicron was a human colony. They just couldn't mention it, because of the censors.

** He was born without memories since his data tracks were wiped by the transwarp explosion so he was just acting on pure instinct. Being a Maximal doesn't make a bot nice, Rattrap's fairly unpleasant, Cheetor's pretty trigger happy and Rhinox, Optimus and Silverbolt have all shown rather nasty sides when really pushed. The only real differences we're shown between Maximals and Predacons are which values they hold and an aggression boost for the Preds. Both Dinobot and Blackarachnia have little trouble adjusting to life with Maximals as allies. Quickstrike is just suited to a hyper aggressive, back-stabbing lifestyle.

* What the hell is wrong with Quickstrike? He's never reprogrammed as a Predacon, but he's a trigger happy psychopath from the start.

** Also, we have to take into account that Dinobot already ''knew'' he was going to die a few episodes before ''Code of Hero'' went down. It's likely that the Golden Disk, being an artifact of the Vok's creation, has the events of time in it. Dinobot likely also realized (either by looking into the Disk's contents or by connecting the dots) what Megatron was planning (the destruction of the proto-human village and the extermination of humanity), and considering the reprecussions this would have on time (the Decepticons being able to triumph in the Great War, and thus the Predacons being superior to the Maximals in social rank), and the ultimate fate of this outcome (without the Matrix of Leadership, Unicron would be devour all life in the galaxy), Dinobot would have decided that dying to save the universe was a fate befitting a warrior, and was what the Disk foretold, and his monologue before he fights the Predacons also lends itself to such a conclusion.

*** Actually, the golden disk that Megatron was using in Code of Hero was the disk from Earth, A.K.A., the Voyager golden record. It was providing information like the newspaper in Film/BackToTheFuture, had the information contained alter by Megatron's actions.
