I think MTMTE Rodimus is conceited, a very flawed, but fun character. He feels very good about himself and his leadership. He means well, and he tries his best to take care of everyone under his command, even though he is plain horrible at it, and he takes it really hard when it comes back and slaps him in the face (ie Red Alert’s suicide attempt, Magnus calling him out). He has a good sense of responsibility, but doesn’t take the authority and burden of leadership as seriously as he should have. He thinks he’s learning from experience day by day, but in reality he just keeps going back and forth in his progress of becoming a better leader.
To be honest, I wouldn’t compare him with G1 Rodimus Prime, as besides both being a turbo-revvin’ daredevil, they are too different as far as leadership is concerned. Rodimus Prime is unwillingly “the Chosen One”; he is very confident (almost borderline arrogant) about his fighting skills, but he knows by heart that as a leader, he will never compare to Optimus Prime. At first he thinks being a Prime is pretty rad, but as soon as he realizes how much responsibility and burden he has to take, he goes “I’m so not ready for this, but I have to do it anyway because everybody looks up to me now, WELP”. He judges himself a lot, and gets upset whenever he can’t live up to his role, but others just keep saying “you can do it! you are a Prime!”, and it really stresses him out. I mean, it took him almost the entire Season 3 to come to term with his role!
This is the perfect comparison.
LMAO!!!!!! I love the comparison. I can’t but help but laugh hysterically at the last one with Magnus’s long list! XD I still love both versions.
It’s people like you that should be banned from DA. Instead of saying such crass nonsense, you should concentrate on telling them how to improve their art work. Saying that their art work looks like “sh*t” doesn’t help at all. How would you like it if someone said that about something you wrote or drew? I doubt very much you could take what you just dished!
