Optimus Prime's unique advantage is his Willpower, recovering health when bleeding and attacking, the stronger the hit the more he recovers. All but one bleed stack will be converted to Power if he's inflicted with at least two.

If Optimus has less than half his health, it is better to use his Special 1 instead of saving up for his other Specials, because he can deal far more damage with this single attack. As he deals only one hit on his Special 1, it is best to use it during or immediately after a melee combo.

His signature ability also significantly reduces the amount of damage he takes for a few seconds, so he becomes almost invincible. Go gung-ho in attacking the opponent before his buffs expire. However, damaging debuffs and Armor piercing can bypass his Armor Buffs but if a single hit deals enough damage from 21%< to 0% Optimus can’t activate his signature ability and it’s over and finished.


If possible, try to use attacks that do not inflict Bleed. Other damaging Debuffs can damage him without him benefitting from them.

If Optimus has his signature ability active, avoid using strong attacks and avoid being hit by him until his buffs expire. Or use Bots with damaging debuffs or those that can Nullify his Armor and Melee Buffs.

Strong Match-ups

  • Optimus has a healing advantage in addition to his class advantage against most Warriors, especially Bonecrusher.
  • Windblade inflicts Bleed with her sword attacks, giving Optimus the willpower to fight back.
  • Megatron (ROTF) has armor that can be bypassed when his arch enemy inflicts bleeds and when he is awakened, Prime’s special attacks will bypass Megatron’s armor. Battle of the bayverse leaders begin


  • Optimus is ideal when facing Base Defenders with a Harm Accelerator, partially countering the harmful Bleed debuff.
  • Melee Bleed from Special Mission Modules will give him a power boost.

Weak Match-ups

  • Bumblebee's Special 2 and 3 can Shock through and past Prime's Armor Buff and deal additional damage for each active Armor Buff.
  • Optimus Prime's Special attacks can Nullify his other self's Armor Buffs.
  • Ultra Magnus can nullify Prime's Melee Buffs and Armor Break his Armor Buffs.
  • Starscream can Nullify Prime's frequent combat buffs.
  • Shockwave's frequent use of Shock Debuffs won't cause Prime to gain power. Really, any bot that uses Shocks over Bleeds work.
  • Megatron can steal Prime’s melee and armor buffs and when he is awakened Megatron can steal those buffs and he will be taking on Prime on instead of Optimus taking him on.
  • Grimlock will easily turn Prime’s strengths against him.
  • Megatronus’s relic of obedience can disallow Prime from taking him on with his melee buffs and armor breaks from the special l can prevent Prime from getting tougher from his armor buffs. The same goes for his G1 self
  • Cheetor’s repair block will prevent Optimus Prime from repairing while Bleeding and an awakened Cheetor can punch through even the toughest armor, stopping the Autobot leader from making his epic last stand.

Recommended Modules

  • The Security Module increases the duration of Armor Buffs, making his signature ability last longer.
  • The Harm Accelerator can enhance Prime’s bleeds
  • Paring the Robot Resource onto the Prime and he’ll be all on business when it comes to his devastating specials.
