GRIMLOCK fights not because he believes in the AUTOBOT ideal of peace and freedom, but because he knows what MEGATRON really is. He was there at teh beginning of the DECEPTICON movement, mudguard deep in the spilled oil on the arena floor. He knws what it is to feel the electron-surge of total victory over his fores. His coolant too has sung as he pressed his blade against the torso of a helpless opponent. But to GRIMLOCK, no weakness is worthy of respect, least of all that weakness that disguises iself as strength. Where is the satisfaction of crushing those who cannot defend themselves, or slaughtering a building full of unarmed innocents? How does madness like that prove one's strength? Better to die fighting against an enemy so powerful that defeat is almost certain. Better still to turn that enemy back and drive them broken before you. To someday see MEGATRON so broken - that is why GRIMLOCK fights.
