ProfileMegatron 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 BioBack on Cybertron, when it is late at night, and very dark, robots tell each other stories of the war. They spin stories about the deeds of Megatron, and though robots don't feel cold, the listeners shiver. The only ones who don't enjoy a scary Megatron story are the old ones, the ones who were there. Those old Autobots remember the real Megatron. Many of them bear scars sustained in the heat of his fusion cannon, or dents delivered by his power swords. To those old robots, Megatron is no monster; he is a warrior so vicious and terrible that monsters pale in comparison.
Robot Mode PowerMegatron begins the series with only one power: the power to lie and manipulate Sumdac to repair and reconstruct him. Over time, the Megatron head will develop into a powerful psychokinetic who can control any machine. While the Cybertronian minds are too advanced to succumb to this ability, Megatron can control virtually any robot on Earth and the automated plants that construct them. In addition to this power, Megatron's eventual robot body will be equipped with an assortment of laser cannons, sonic missiles and pulse blasters.
