*** If I told you I was going to stab you, and then stabbed you, would the fact that you knew it was coming make it any more pleasant?

*** Megatron has stated that he keeps Starscream around to prevent himself from becoming complacent. Essentially, Starscream's constant attempts at betrayal keep Megatron sharp.

** That, and the fact that if he killed off Starscream, Onslaught, and Soundwave, Shockwave or someone else less predictable would take over. Better the devil you know than the devil you don't know. One of the Decepticon moons later in Cliffjumper's level remarks that he's more comfortable with Starscream rather than Shockwave as leader, since Shockwave is considered a nutjob by many 'Cons who don't understand him.

** Because it's ''[[BigGood Optimus Prime]]''. He can't ''not'' give the Decepticons a chance to leave peacefully. Megatron's death was the only option, as far as he saw.

* Why didn't Optimus just have Metroplex crush Starscream and Soundwave for a fuller decapitation strike?

** Atmosphere might have alternate functions, like insulation, and not having to breathe might make their fate all the worse, because without some means of getting back, they're kind of stuck in the void of space.

* On Bumblebee's mission, a tentacle from the Nemesis shatters a window on the Ark and all the Autobot [[RedShirt redshirts]] get sucked out (indicating that the Ark is pressurized), leaving only Bumblebee. Ratchet immediately swears that they will be avenged. This brings up two questions since it is firmly established that Cybertronians can survive in the vacuum of space (as demonstrated by Bumblebee himself later in the very same mission). First, why would the Ark need to be pressurized when Cybertronians don't breathe? Second, why does Ratchet react as if the redshirts were killed by being sucked out when they can survive in the vacuum of space?

** He responds to the will of the Primes. Perhaps he was originally a weapon, built during the early days of Cybertron then forgotten.

* Why was Metroplex made? Trypticon was made out of a KillSat the decepticons came up with. Omega Supreme already had a good reason (Being the gatekeeper and whatnot). What's the point of Metroplex?

** It probably had something to do with Starscream talking about "Gone are the failures of Megatron!" and trying to turn the Decepticons against Megatron.
