* Also in the sequel ''Film/TransformersRevengeOfTheFallen'', when Megatron mercilessly tried shooting Optimus with his handgun laser, Optimus managed to grab Megatron's hand and point it at Megatron's face. Megatron then opens fire, burning his face very badly and losing the fight. In the next movie, ''Film/TransformersDarkOfTheMoon'', Megatron is dying (rotting away) from the burns despite the efforts of Scalpel-like doctors to repair it, making him the target of scar insults from Starscream.
