Evil Decepticon leader from the 1980's Transformers television series. Known for using ridiculous, dim-witted schemes in his attempts to "plunder the Earth of it's resources" and to foil the Autobots. Many fans hate him, wishing he were more bad-ass. I say to them "Who cares!?" I mean, honestly, let's face it - it's a kid's show! He's not ment to satisfy the loins of 30 year old super geeks who take the show too seriously. If you loved the show as a kid, and are willing to watch it with a grain of salt, it's a lot easier to appriciate his contribution to the show. You just have to suspend your disbelief, or laugh hysterically at the plot flaws and animation errors!
G1 Megatron, who murdered half the Autobot cast in the movie, seemed pleased to kill Ironhide despite the fact he was defenseless. As Ironhide bravely grabbed Megatron by the leg to avenge his fallen comrades, Megatron sneered and said "Such heroic nonsense!" as he shot him to death.

The most feared Decepticon to ever exist... if you're half-drunk and have the physical strength of a housefly. Megatron has a fusion cannon and the ability to completely miss any target who has a toy still in production, and a penchant for inane plans that three-year olds could counter-- interestingly, it always take the Autobots 25 minutes to counter them. Hmmmmm...
A small bunny rabbit ran out in front of Megatron. "We're under attack! DECEPTICONS RETREAT!"
