|“|| - 13, is that you?|
- I am Optimus Prime. I am not a number.
- You cannot change the past.
One of the Thirteen Primes created by Primus himself to defeat Unicron, Megatronus is a being of unparalled strength. His quest for greater power led him to betray his fellow Primes, resulting in a millennia of banishment. That banishment has ended, and his presence looms large through the cosmos.
- What Could Go Wrong? (teased)
After having Shockwave taking possession of the Forge of Solus Prime, Megatron sets up a quest to gather the power of the Primes. During Jazz, Wheeljack, Tantrum and Wheeljack's arrival, Megatron sets up an excavation site to secure pod from which he believes bears another ancient Relic. However, further research by Soundwave demonstrates a living Bot is inside.
Now at full power again, and with his Relics gathered in his Tomb, Megatronus unleashes a wave of corruptive energies over New Quintessa and captures Optimus Prime, Ultra Magnus and Megatron. The pulse ends-up picking a Squad of Autobots composed of Ratchet, Jazz, Arcee and Prowl, leaving only Arcee in full sentience after corrupting and driving her teammates mad. Able to free Optimus and Ultra Magnus, Arcee stands up to Megatronus with the help of the Commander. At the end of the struggling showdown, the Commander, Optimus, Ultra Magnus and Arcee are able to lock Megatronus once again inside his Tomb of Relics, hoping it would be enough to contain the Fallen God's power for now.

Megatronus is a powerful bot who is ruthless and unchallenging, as should be his playstyle. Melee and ranged attacks deal very good damage so utilize them. Dark burns deal more damage through heavy attacks. However, his best damage lies in his special attacks.
One disadvantage Megatronus has is that his passive power gain and situational power steals are his only ways of getting power; he cannot gain power from being hit. As such, mods that constantly drain power are his greatest weakness.
As his relic changes with each power bar, use specials strategically so that the relic matches the special with a relic-specific effect. If going for survival mode, use a Special 1 once so that Preservation is active for Special 2. If going for power steal mode, use only Special 1 which activates every other time.
You could save up for Special 3 from the start for a chance to Life Steal, or use Special 1 once then charge up to Special 3 for a chance of Power Steal, but Special 3 more for damage with a chance of relic effect.
Megatronus has an Improved Aim Enhancer mod in Expert and Master Spotlight Missions, so Blocking will be useless so keep your dodging skills in check. Frequent dodgers like Sideswipe and Barricade will be useful. However, there are also bots to counter his Relic of Immortality. Ramjet and his large number of special buffs will enable him to keep fighting but like Wheeljack's Force Field he can't take damage but still gains power. Ranged fights will be challenging but not impossible.
Bots that rely on applying or gaining buffs or debuffs (respectively) will not fit well with the Deity's Relic of Obedience. Those like Soundwave, Wheeljack, Jazz, Blaster, Mixmaster, and others will struggle with defeating Megatronus. Optimus Primal will also be a weak choice because he will only lose his critical armor and not gain any melee buffs.
- Everyone – There is no bot that Megatronus cannot overpower.
- Megatron – Megatron will find his namesake needs no buffs to be formidable.
- Optimus Prime – If Optimus is relying on help from his Chief Medical Officer, the Relic of Obedience will put a stop to that notion.
- Robot Resource – One cannot even fathom the carnage Megatronus could inflict with a second source of power.
- Prime Module – The Prime Module will help this mad god stay in the fight longer and increase his stats to match any higher level contender.
- No One – No one stands as a serious challenger to him that is the embodiment of power.
- Rhinox – Rhinox’s Power Lock will keep (prolong) this mighty Decepticon from switching modes.
- Shockwave – Repair Block and Power Drain will help keep this Prime from tapping into his true power.
- Nightbird's Mark - A Nightbird's Cull can prevent him from going immortal.
- Power Wipe - Megatronus will never be able to gain two bars of power.
- Power Conductor - Megatronus will gain power very very slowly.
- The Paralyzer's Stun Ray will drain Megatronus' Power very quickly.
