First Comic Appearance: Transformers Animated: Arrival #1
Bibliography of significant appearances: In this form, with his Cybertronian Alternate mode, he made only a few appearances, most notably in the Transformers Animated movie introduction: Transform and Roll Out. Of course, it was this form's decapitated head which featured so prominently in the series until his return with Earth mode helicopter.
We wish to extend a special thanks to Cartoon Network PR Department for providing
us with official character bios and information.
MEGATRON is a fierce, unyielding despot who sees himself as a freedom fighter. He sees the DECEPTICONS as an oppressed race suffering under the tyranny of the AUTOBOTS. The DECEPTICONS must survive by any means necessary. He takes extreme pleasure in the suffering of even a single Autobot. And MEGATRON does not care at all for the collateral damage known as humans who might happen to stand in his way. He has the zeal of a fanatic and demands the unquestioning loyalty of those who serve him.
Character description from package "tech spec": Back on Cybertron, when it's late at night, and very dark, robots tell each other stories of war. they spin stories about the deeds of Megatron, and though robots don't feel cold, the listeners shiver. The only ones who done enjoy a scary Megatron story are the old ones, the ones who were there. Those old Autobtos remember the real Megatron. Many of them bear scars sustained in the heat of his fusion cannon, or dents delivered by his powerful swords. To those old robots, Megatron is no monster; he's a warrior so vicious and terrible that monsters pale in comparison
Galactic Powers and Abilities:
Other appearances: Take a deep breath because this could take awhile! Whether you consider Animated Megatron to be connected to any of the previous incarnations or not, there is no disputing, there are few other persona names more reused throughout Transformers mythology.
original toy form so bad@$$ it is now an illegal toy in the U.S. as an
exact replica of a real firearm, the Walter P-38 pistol. Since he was reformatted into Galvatron by Unicron, he
made few other appearances in the G1 series.
...undoubtedly, there will be many more to come!
Thanks for visiting!
