Rewriting The Transformers

Rewriting Transformers 2

  • Adaptational Early Appearance: Wheeljack debuts here, not in Dark of the Moon.
  • Adapted Out: Skids and Mudflap are replaced with Sideswipe and Sunstreaker, who fill their roles.
    • Charlotte Mearing's role is filled by Marissa Fairborne here.
  • Age Lift: Jetfire was an Old Master in Revenge of the Fallen. Here, he's Starscream's equal as in Generation 1.
  • Advertisement:
  • Central Theme: Faith in leadership. Bumblebee is forced to become acting leader of the Autobots after Optimus Prime is taken out of action, and he matures from there.
  • Comic-Book Fantasy Casting: Phoenix imagines Chip Chase being played by Dave Franco here.
  • Decoy Protagonist: Spike is described as one here. While the story is told from his perspective, he's ultimately this to Bumblebee.
  • Dies Differently in Adaptation: In "Revenge of the Fallen", the Fallen was killed by Optimus but in the rewrite, he is killed by Megatron who cannot stand the treatment his master gave him.
    • Sideswipe dies destroying the Constructicons alongside Sunstreaker instead of being Killed Offscreen by Cemetery Wind.
    • Jetfire sacrifices himself to destroy the Star Harvester.
  • Fetch Quest: The Autobots and NEST travel around the world in search of rare metals they can use to help the wounded Optimus.
  • Fusion Fic: This version of Revenge of the Fallen takes inspiration from the G1 episodes "Divide and Conquer", "Fire in the Sky" and "Fire on the Mountain", much like how the original shares a similar plot with "Changing Gears".
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Sideswipe blows himself up to destroy Bonecrusher.
    • Jetfire dies destroying the Star Harvester.
  • Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal:
    • After the Fallen diminishes and berates him, Megatron murders his former mentor and takes over as leader of the Decepticons.
    • Megatron receives this by Starscream who is fed up being on the receiving end of his abuse.
  • Mythology Gag: The base used by NEST and the Autobots is nicknamed Autobot City.
  • Rank Up: For his heroic efforts, Bumblebee is promoted by Prime from scout to sergeant.
  • Spared By Adaptation: In an interesting case, Optimus doesn't die in the fight that left him out from much of the movie. He only undergoes a coma and goes through a Vision Quest.
  • Vision Quest: While in comatose, Optimus is judged by the Thirteen Primes who want to determine if he is ready to join them in the afterlife.
