* Pyra Magna's final monolgue closes out the miniseries, putting an optimistic note on the GrandFinale:
-->'''Pyra Magna''': A yellow star and a miniature black hole look upon us, in equilibrium. We are touched by light and dark - judged by both. Optimus Prime is gone...and with him ends the era of Autobot and Decepticon, Cybertronian and colonist, human and machine. What survives is his ''faith.'' Perhaps he never believed in any higher power guiding out hands...[[RosseauWasRight but he believed in]] ''us.'' I am Pyra Magna, the Mistress of Flame. Spiritual leader of my people, defender of my homeworld...Earth. And we will light our way against ''all'' of our darkest hours...as one.

Added DiffLines:

* Cosmos, Laserbeak, Buzz Saw, and Sky-Byte joining forces to HoldTheLine against Unicron's Maximals so the Decepticons of Sanctuary Station can escape safely. It may be a BolivianArmyEnding for them, but Cosmos dies among friends.

!Unicron 4:
* Despite his declaration that the latest conflict has nothing to do with him, the moment Blurr looks outside the window of his bar and sees Unicron tearing Cybertron apart, he decides to do what he does best - [[SuperSpeed run really fast and save as many lives as he can.]]

Added DiffLines:

!Unicron 5:
* Autobots, Decepticons, G.I. Joes, Cobra forces, and all the rest coming together for one last briefing before the final battle. Some tensions aside, they agree to set it all aside, at least until the apocalypse is averted.
* As night falls before the final offensive, Arcee visits Optimus, and the two share private concerns and offer comfort to one another.


* Now without Skywarp or Thundercracker, Optimus, Arcee, and Starscream don't have a way to get the Talisman inside Unicron. That is, Starscream reveals, without switching the Talisman on and using its power to bore a way to Unicron's core. Which, as he deduced, means that whoever activates it would be killed by the Talisman's unleashed energies. So does he [[DirtyCoward demand that Arcee or Optimus sacrifice themselves for him]]? [[AvertedTrope Believe it or not]]...''[[HeroicSacrifice no]].''

* As the remaining Seekers carry Optimus, Arcee, and the Talisman to Unicron, Thundercracker gets shot down and spirals out of control. As the Chaos-Bringer's minions close in to finish him off, Skywarp (having been sent to retrieve the Talisman) [[TakingTheBullet jumps in to take a blow meant for him.]]
** Cue Thundercracker tossing the Talisman to Optimus, Arcee, and Starscream so he can stay behind to protect Skywarp [[BolivianArmyEnding from the incoming Maximal horde]].
-->'''Skywarp''': Get the Talisman out of here!
-->'''Thundercracker''': But...but we're Seekers. And Seekers ''never'' leave each other behind. Starscream - catch! I've got a brother to save!

-->'''Starscream''':...I ''always'' knew this would come down to me. Tell Windblade to take good care of Earth, will you? (''Pauses, and adds wryly'') [[FamousLastWords Aw, who am I kidding? She probably won't even TRY to conquer the place]].
* Ironhide is fatally wounded by one of Unicron's attacking Maximals, but [[GoOutWithASmile goes out with a smile]] because he sees how everyone - Autobots, Decepticons, and all of their respective allies - have come together to defy the apocalypse.
-->'''Jazz''': Ironhide -Ratchet can pull y'back together
-->'''Ironhide''': Ratchet's far away, pal...but he's also ''right here.'' I get it. I get what "Till All Are One" means. "Pax Cybertronia," too. An' it's ''okay,'' Jazz. [[KilledMidSentence It's really...]]
* At Unicron's core, Optimus decides to plunge into the singularity alone, urging Arcee to survive - after all, [[OfficialCouple she and Aileron have something to live for]].
* Despite her pessimism about what comes next should Unicron be destroyed, and an absolute lack of faith in Optimus being any better than any of Cybertron's other leaders, Slide nonetheless agrees to join forces with the remaining Torchbearers [[FusionDance to form Victorion]].
* Prowl's CharacterDevelopment is brought into full focus, especially compared to his EvilCounterpart, Shockwave - unlike the latter, he still believes in inherent goodness.

* When all forces start pulling back so they don't get caught in the Talisman's destruction of Unicron, Aileron and Bumblebee stay behind to rescue Arcee and Optimus. [[spoiler:They succeed with the former]].
* As Unicron begins to collapse, Optimus saves the Antilian scientist from falling into the abyss alone, vowing to stay with him at the end.

** Rom and the other Solstar Knights comfort the Elonian child from the beginning of the series.
** Windblade resolves that while Earth is the new home of the Cybertronians, they'll be sharing it on equal terms with the human race.
** Pyra Magna comes to terms with her crisis of faith, concluding to find her own path to believe in...and teaching that same sense of self-belief to others, reclaiming the hammer that the Mistress of the Flame left to her.
** Slide accepts Pyra's offer to become part of the new Torchbearers, and concluding that Optimus was never the tyrant that she thought he was.
* Pyra Magna's final monolgue closes out the miniseries, putting an optimistic note on the GrandFinale:
