Megatron (Michael Bay Pentalogy).jpg
Megatron is the main antagonist of the Michael Bay Pentalogy of Transformers, since Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen, he was simply just an antagonist as The Fallen for Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen, Sentinel Prime for Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon, Lockdown for Transformers 4: Age of Extinction, and Quintessa for Transformers 5: The Last Knight took the role of main antagonist in their respective films.

Autobot Qualities (In A Bad Way)

  1. Megatron's personality consists of being nothing other than an evil, brutal, psychotic, homicidal killing machine.
  2. In Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen, he and Scalpel tortured Sam Witwicky by attempting to remove his brain for "science".
  3. When he became "Galvatron" in Transformers 4: Age of Extinction, he used Transformium just to "transform" from one mode to another.
  4. Speaking of his new name "Galvatron", he doesn't stay faithful to that name. In Transformers 5: The Last Knight, he became "Megatron" again.
  5. Back to Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen, he barely uses his tank mode (which was made for the sole purpose of merchandise).
  6. His design looks quite ugly for a Decepticon.
  7. He died multiple times and was brought back after nearly every death. This can appear excessive and a poor attempt at keeping Megatron a reoccurring villain.
  8. Starting from Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen, he wasn't given much of a good spotlight and he was treated as mostly a punching bag in the fight scenes.
    • However, in Age of Extinction, he does put up a good against Optimus Prime in a short fight scene.

Decepticon Qualities (In A Good Way)

  1. He was not as bad in Transformers (2007).
  2. His design might be ugly, but it had a lot of effort.
    • In addition, he's the only Transformers character in the film series whose design changes in every movie which is interesting.
  3. Kids may still love him as a villain.
  4. He does a fair amount of cool stuff in the movies, particularly in the fight scenes.
  5. He does say some cool stuff such as:
    1. Transformers (2007)
      • I AM MEGATRON.
      • JOIN THEM IN EXTINCTION!!!
    2. Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen (2009)
      • EVEN IN DEATH, THERE IS NO COMMAND BUT MINE.
      • DECEPTICONS, BEGIN OUR ASSAULT!!!
    3. Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon (2011)
      • ALL HAIL MEGATRON.
      • THIS IS MY PLANET!
    4. Transformers 4: Age of Extinction (2014)
      • THAT IS WHY I HAVE NO FEAR! YOU DIE!!
      • WE SHALL MEET AGAIN PRIME, FOR I AM REBORN.
    5. Transformers 5: The Last Knight (2017)
      • THE END IS NEAR, MY OLD TREACHEROUS FRIEND. WHAT A SHAME YOU'LL BE UNABLE TO SEE IT.
      • WE WERE BROTHERS ONCE!
  6. Hugo Weaving and Frank Welker did a great job voicing him.
  7. The scene where he orchestrated an attempt to remove the brain of Sam from his skull, mentioned in BQ #2, can be considered cool or appropriately intense since it's disturbing and different.
  8. The toy versions of him are nice.

Trivia

  • In Transformers (2007), he was originally going to be a tank with a G1-esque appearance. The tank actually apears in Megatron's design in Angry birds Transformers.
