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 wickedly smiles, 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.

[During the Decepticons' siege of Autobot City]
Perceptor: Ultra Magnus, a cursory evaluation of Decepticon capabilities indicates a distinct tactical deficiency.
Ultra Magnus: In other words, Perceptor—
Springer: —We're outnumbered!
Ultra Magnus: Springer, you and Arcee transform Autobot City. Perceptor, tell Blaster to radio Prime for reinforcements.
Blurr: [speaking quickly] What about me, Magnus, what about me? Huh, huh? I can help. I wanna help. What about me?
Ultra Magnus: Blurr, you can help me alert the others.
Blurr: [speaking quickly] Absolutely, positively, definitely! Nobody can get the job done faster than I can! Nobody, nobody, nobody!
Springer: Come on, Arcee, let's go!
Arcee: But Hot Rod and Kup are still outside the city.
Springer: We can't wait, they'll have to take care of themselves, come on.

[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 will 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! Etc.
Damaged Decepticons: No, wait! Brothers, don't! Etc. [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: STAAAARSCREEEAAAAAAM!!!!! [his crumbled body disappears into space]

[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— [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 before crushing the 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...ITS DISMEMBERMENT!!! [flies off to attack Cybertron]

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 Matrix from Galvatron and stands up]
Optimus Prime: [offscreen] Arise, Rodimus Prime.
[Hot Rod turns into Rodimus Prime]
Rodimus Prime: [quietly] Optimus...
Galvatron: NO!! [tries to shoot Rodimus, but to no avail]
Rodimus: THIS IS THE END OF THE ROAD, GALVATRON!! [grabs Galvatron and throws him away from Unicron]
Galvatron: NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
