Added DiffLines:

*The majority of ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' series end this way. One major theme in every series is that the battle between Autobots and Decepticons is TheForeverWar, raging since ancient times (and when you’re from a race of nigh-immortal robots who considers four million years to be young, the standard for ‘ancient times’ is pretty high!) Your usual three-season-long window into this eternal conflict almost never sees its permanent end. A TF series finale might have Megatron’s big final plot defeated but he escapes, or is only imprisoned (which [[CardboardPrison is seldom final for supervillains]]). If he’s actually destroyed with no hint at survival, enough major ‘Cons to continue in his stead will remain alive and free. Or, the final conflict of the series will be with a GreaterScopeVillain or OutsideContextProblem, leaving the usual villains to pick up where they left off after its defeat. No less than four series have ended with the big victory for the Autobots being the restoration of their home planet Cybertron after ages of war had left it dead or dying - and all four made it clear that some of the baddies are still out there.

-->'''Cerebros:''' “But what of the Decepticons?”
-->'''Optimus:''' “There may always be Decepticons, but I have a different task for you.”
