Armada Unicron

Acronyms and abbreviations are fun. That, or these lines don't deserve quite enough respect for full names.
Robots In Disguise, Armada, Energon, Cybertron - there, that's their names, happy now???

Mako has such a good point, it's not even funny.

If you want to talk about fairness, how about the fact that Megatron had been fighting all day, all night, and all the next day before a fully-charged and ready Optimus Prime even set foot on the field?


Do bear in mind that the Autobots had a severe Energon shortage due to the Decepticons taking over Cybertron. So Prime likely wasn't at full power, but still, valid point right thar.

This also gets into the idea of fuel economy for TFs. We never saw the last time Prime charged up, and he just flew a ship from Cybertron. Now assuming that TFs are similar to people, (this being soft sci-fi and all), 1 hour of flying a ship (driving) is the same as 3 hours of being awake otherwise, (in terms of cognitive and sensory load).

And, how much fuel did Prime burn while driving through all those 'Cons?

Finally, in terms of fairness, I cannot take points away from Prime for being well, primed (pun intended) for the fight, if I am going to *give* Megatron points for being smart enough to use Hotrod as a shield.

The point is, he's dead! And the Matrix died with him!

No! The point is that you're a fool!

The Matrix was passed on to a new leader, Ultra Magnus...for about a day. Then, to Hotrod, and then it passed into the pantheon of over-used plot devices.

Now, you will go to the "Shattered Glass" thread, and post about heroic Combaticons.

Now. go!

I'll get to it. It's on my list. Maybe tomorrow, in the morning, before I go to have class.

Probably less fuel than Megatron used flying from Cybertron to Earth *and* hijacking an Autobot shuttle along the way though.

And, how much fuel did Prime burn while driving through all those 'Cons?

He only drove through one 'con while the rest scattered out of his way. Not really equivalent to all fighting Megatron had personally been doing for the last day and a half. :mrgreen:

Megatron may well have had time to rest/recharge between scenes. It depends how long the flight from Cybertron to Earth is. Megatron could have rested. And, the battle at Metroplex went on for at least a day or so. Note the elapsed time once the shelling starts.

Of course, we do not know if Megatron actually does recharge or not, just that he probably could have.
