The Decepticon Crypt



Episode Died In: Transformers: The Movie

Bio: Megatron is perhaps the greatest Decepticon leader in Transformer history. He has led his group of soldiers into battle against the Autobots on numerous ocasions, but they have always been defeated. Megatron's hatred for Optimus Prime and his Autobots has been well documented. Megatron and his Decepticons fought the Autobots for many years trying to steal the energy from Earth so that they could replenish Cybertron's energy resources and counquer the universe. Eventually, in the year 2005, the Decepticons were able to defeat the Autobots and take control of Cybertron. Megatron had many loyal followers, but one Decepticon failed to realize that Megatron would always be the Decepticon leader and always wanted leadership for himself. I am of course speaking of Starscream. In a twist of fate however, it was Starscream himself who played a big part in the demise of Megatron.

Cause of Death: After a grueling fight with Optimus Prime in Autobot City on Earth, Megatron and the Decepticons retreated for Cybertron to take care of the injured and regroup to attack the Autobots again. Once in space, Astrotrain informed the Decepticons that they had to jettison some weight, or he would never make it to Cybertron. Starscream and the healthy Decepticons took a vote and agreed that the injured Decepticons would have to be tossed out of Astrotrain, including Megatron. Starscream tossed Megatron out of the ship, even though Megatron said that he was still functioning. The Decepticons left for Cybertron inside Astrotrain and had left Megatron to die along with Skywarp, Thundercracker, Shrapnel, Kickback, and Bombshell. However, while floating in space, the six injured Decepticons soon came across the giant transforming planet known as Unicron. Unicron offered Megatron and his injured comrades new bodies if Megatron would destroy the new Autobot leader known as Ultra Magnus, who was given the Autobot matrix of leadership after Optimus Prime had died after his fight with Megatron. Megatron refused at first, but changed his mind after Unicron threatened to send him and the Decepticons into oblivion. Unicron then reformatted Megatron's body into....Galvatron. Unicron then turned Skywarp into Cyclonus, Galvatron's second-in-command. Unicron also turned Thundercracker into Scourge, the tracker, and the three Insecticons were turned into Scourge's henchmen, the Sweeps.
