Can we all just acknowledge for a moment at how tired Optimus is, and not just physically tired, but mentally tired as well?
IDW Optimus has been through so much shit and all he wants to do is frikkin help. That’s all he wants. He is just so tired of everyone’s shit.
In TFA he was so done about being left out of every frikkin decision in that entire show, and so confused about absolutely everything.
In TFP, he just wanted the war to be over so he could rest. I mean he frikkin almost gave the matrix to Smokescreen. He would have done anything to be able to rest as long as he knew his family would be safe.
In Bayverse, he is just so one with everyone’s shit it’s not even funny anymore.
In Rescue Bots, we can just tell Optimus is tired not only because it’s part of the TFP universe, but also because he was so drained after adapting to a T-Rex alt mode. I mean his mental state was so absolutely drained that he couldn’t control it, partly owing to the fact of the TFP universe’s timeline.
In RiD 2015 Optimus is just so exhausted by this point, he just absolutely wants to sleep. Even though the show shows him having more of a positive attitude towards all of this, that is only because that particular show is directed towards a very young audience. When in reality, the Prime is just DONE.
Optimus is just so tired, I hope at some point in the future he just gets a frikkin break.
