Profile: [From the Personal Datatracks of Ironhide, Autobot Security] I’d lay down my life fer Optimus Prime, no question. Sure, I got plenty of buddies in the Autobot army that I’d do anything for, but no one more so that Optimus. With Prime, you never gotta worry if he’s thinking somethin’ about you that he ain’t sayin’. He’s as hones and, well, kind as they come, but more than that, he’s a loyal friend who’s absolutely dedicated to what he believes in. An’ that’s what counts. You know Optimus ain’t gonna leave you behind, and when he’s on the job you can just feel in your circuits that he’ll handle things no matter how grim it looks because you know he can. He;s got all the capabilities you’d want in a military commander: he’s fearless, intelligent, compassionate, and powerful. But what I respect most about him is that he wasn’t always this way. I’ve seen him change and grow from a timid, unsure archivist who just happened to be put in charget to a wise, confident leader. I think that’s why every Autobot’ll gladly follow Prime’s lead without him even having to ask. He understand what it’s like to be in their shoes, confused, scared oilless, and just trying to do what’s right, so he’d never ask something of them that he wouldn’t willingly do himself.
[From the Personal Datatracks of Hot Rod, Autobot Cavalier] What else can you say about Optimus Prime other than he’s the strongest, wisest, most dedicated, and….well, greatest Autobot of all time? Yeah, I know that sounds like the lame or easy thing to say, but anyone who’s ever met Optimus Prime automatically knows it’s true. When he walks into a room, you can feel the change in everyone. Even the most tired, battle-weary troops immediately stand up straighter, react faster, and think better when he’s around. It’s not the kind of behavior that comes from the fear tyrants like Megatron instill in their soldiers; no, Optimus gets this reaction because ‘bots respond to him without him even asking, like they all wanna live up to the standard of nobility he’s quietly set for himself. Optimus isn’t a “do-as-I-say, not-as-I-do” kind of Transformer. He doesn’t command people; he leads them, and every Autobot I know would confidently follow him straight into the Inferno. No matter how bad or how hopeless the situation gets, when Optimus is on the scene you just trust he’s going to solve the problem, and you know you’d do anything to help him do it.
Abilities: Optimus Prime is the strongest, toughest and smartest Autobot commander in history and one of, if not the most, powerful Autobots alive. He’s tapped into his exceptional natural leadership skills. He can lift 4,000,000 lbs. and a blow from his fist exerts a force of 12,000 lbs. per sq. inch. He is a brilliant military commander and strategist. He is one of the best hand to hand fighters among all Transformers and has an accuracy nearly unmatched one either side. He can fire a shot that can burn a hole in the nosecone of a Decepticon seeker from 30 miles away, aided by his outstanding visual acuity.
In his standard robot mode Optimus Prime wields his power Laser Cannon rifle and can switch out his hand for an energy axe. His standard trailer can turn into a mini-base, equipped with particle beams and laser canons and equipped with communications and repair equipment. He also has a remote controlled reconnaissance module called Roller than he can control from a distance of 1,200 miles away. In his semi mode he can wield all of these weapons, although he tends to prefer driving through or over his enemies.
Weaknesses: Optimus Prime has no physical weaknesses, but his compassion for all life can be used against him by less noble beings.
