Beyond good. Beyond evil. Beyond your wildest imagination.


Shockwave: Laserbeak returns, Megatron.
Megatron: Welcome, Laserbeak. Unlike some of my other warriors, you never fail me. [glances pointedly at Starscream, who looks up] Soundwave, play back Laserbeak's findings.
Soundwave: As you command, Megatron.
Optimus Prime: [on the playback] I want you to make a special run to Autobot City on Earth.
Ironhide: But, Prime—
[Megatron evilly smirks, happy at Ironhide's objection]
Optimus: Listen, Ironhide. We don't have enough Energon cubes to power a full-scale assault. Ready the shuttle for launch! Now all we need is a little Energon, and a lot of luck.
Megatron: More than you imagine, Optimus Prime.

[The Decepticons invade the Autobot shuttle, with Megatron, Starscream, and the Constructicons breaking in]
Brawn: Megatron!
Prowl: Decepticons!
Megatron: DIE, AUTOBOTS!
[Megatron transforms into gun mode and lands in Starscream's hands. Starscream uses Megatron to shoot Brawn in the shoulder, and Scavenger fires and hits Prowl. Ironhide and Ratchet start blasting at the Decepticons but end up getting shot several times by Megatron still in his gun mode fired by Starscream. All Autobots but Ironhide die.]
Megatron:[transforms back into robot mode] This was almost too easy, Starscream.
Starscream: Much easier, almighty Megatron, than attacking the real threat; the Autobots' Moonbase.
Megatron: You're an idiot, Starscream. When we slip by their early warning systems in their own shuttle and attack Autobot City, the Autobots will be vanquished forever!
Ironhide:[Clutches at Megatron's leg] No...!
Megatron: Such heroic nonsense. [Kills Ironhide offscreen with a point-blank blast to the head from his fusion cannon]

[Perceptor analyzes Prime, who took much damage during the Autobot City siege]
Perceptor: I fear the wounds are... fatal.
Daniel: Prime, you can't die!
Optimus Prime: Do not grieve. Soon... I shall be one with the Matrix.
Hot Rod: Prime...
Optimus: Ultra Magnus... It is to you, old friend, that I shall pass the Matrix of Leadership... as it was passed to me.
Ultra Magnus: But Prime... I'm, I'm just a soldier. I'm not worthy.
Optimus: Nor was I. But one day... an Autobot shall rise from our ranks... and use the power of the Matrix... to light... our darkest hour. [opens chest compartment to reveal the Matrix. Awed, the Autobots take a step back] Until the day...'til all are one. [tries to give the Matrix to Ultra Magnus, but it falls until Hot Rod catches it. Hot Rod gives the Matrix to Ultra Magnus, right before Optimus dies]

Astrotrain: Jettison some weight, or I'll never make it to Cybertron!
Starscream: Fellow Decepticons! Astrotrain has requested that we lighten our burden.
Bonecrusher: In that case, I say it is survival of the fittest.
Starscream: Do I hear a second on that?
Undamaged Decepticons: Aye!
Starscream: And against?
Damaged Decepticons: [weakly] Nay.
Starscream: The Ayes have it!
Undamaged Decepticons: Get! Make room for others!
Damaged Decepticons: No, wait! Brothers, don't...! [The damaged Decepticons are tossed out of Astrotrain's door. Starscream carries the damaged Megatron to the door.]
Starscream: Oh, how it pains me to do this! [smirks viciously]
Megatron: Wait! I still function!
Starscream: Wanna bet? [releases Megatron into deep space and closes the door.]
Megatron: STAAARSCREEAAAAM!!! [his crumbled body disappears into space]
Starscream: Well, [dusts off hands] as Megatron has, how shall we say, "departed", I nominate myself as the new leader.
Scrapper: Wait! The Constructicons form Devastator! The most powerful robot! We should rule! [Soundwave interrupts the Constructicons's bold protest in response]
Soundwave: Soundwave: superior; Constructicons: inferior.
Bonecrusher: Who are you calling inferior?!
Hook: Nobody would follow an uncharismatic bore like you! [Soundwave's cassette minions eject in anger]
Rumble: Hey! Nobody calls Soundwave uncrassamatic!
Frenzy: Yeah, let's kick tailgate!
Scrapper: Constructicons! Unite!! [The Constructicons attempt to merge into Devastator]
Rumble and Frenzy: No way! [Rumble and Frenzy immediately activates their pile-drive causing the surface to shake that prevented the Constructicons from merging. Now, the Decepticons begin fighting one another for leadership]

[It is Starscream's coronation. Astrotrain tries to put the crown on Starscream, only to be distracted by the trumpet-blowing Constructicons.]
Starscream: [impatiently] Get on with the ceremony! [Constructicons pause and restart the trumpeting until Starscream blows the trumpets away with his cannon. Astrotrain crowns him] My fellow Decepticons! As your new leader, I-- [gasps in shock as Cyclonus appears] Who disrupts my coronation?! [Galvatron hops out of Cyclonus' cockpit and approaches the steps]
Galvatron: "Coronation", Starscream? This is bad comedy.
Starscream: Megatron? Is that you?
Galvatron: Here's a hint! [assumes cannon mode and blasts Starscream, reducing him to ashes. crushes crown] Will anyone else attempt to fill his shoes?
Rumble: Eh, what'd he say his name was?
Galvatron: Galvatron.
Decepticons: Long live Galvatron!! Galvatron!!

Galvatron: Unicron? Unicron! Answer me! See this: the Matrix! I now possess that which you most fear! [Unicron roars] You'll do my bidding, or taste my wrath! [tries - unsuccessfully - to open the Matrix]
Unicron: [begins to shake with anger] You underestimate me, Galvatron. [transforms into a giant robot. Galvatron watches in horror] For a time... I considered sparing your wretched little planet Cybertron. But now, you shall witness... it's dismemberment! [flies off to attack Cybertron]
Galvatron: Nooooooooooooooo!!!

Galvatron: Come out, Autobot! We all must die sometime.
Hot Rod: Not today, Galvatron! [tackles Galvatron, who reverses and begins to strangle him]
Galvatron: I will crush you with my bare hands! DIE, AUTOBOT! First Prime, then Ultra Magnus, and now, you. It's a pity you Autobots die so easily, or I might have a sense a satisfaction now!
[Hot Rod grabs the now-glowing Matrix from Galvatron, breaks away and stands up]
Optimus Prime: [offscreen] Arise, Rodimus Prime.
[Hot Rod turns into Rodimus Prime, raising the Matrix above his head]
Rodimus Prime: [quietly] Optimus.
Galvatron: No! [tries to shoot Rodimus, but the laser blasts reflect off the energy field although the Matrix is dislodged to the side]
Rodimus: This is the end of the road, Galvatron! [grabs Galvatron and throws him away from Unicron as Galvatron screams loudly. picks up the Matrix and opens it] Now, light our darkest hour... [Unleashes the power of the Matrix which successfully destroys Unicron from the inside]
