My money would be.on megatron... His sensors would.pick up on the fact that humans are inside and then go after the fuel cells... All he has to do is watch for that freakin sword and he would be fine

Hah! Two of my favorite cartoons from my childhood. An awesome crossover idea and a superb art piece as well.

It amazes that so many think that Megatron will apparently steamroll through Voltron. Way I see it, Megatron's only possible chance is his cannon, but depending on Arus's gravitational pull, its power may be greatly effected, that's why his cannon was always more powerful on Cybertron and in deep space than it was on Earth. For reasons that never really made much sense to me, it was stated in an old 1980's Transformers sourcebook that Earth's gravitational field actually weakened the cannon. I don't understand it or agree with it, but anyhoo...

I don't know if anyone would want to consider this or not, seeing how what I'm about to mention isn't necessarily canon(pardon the pun). But in the recent Transformers comic 'All Hail Megatron' a battle like this happened when Devastator turned on Megatron. He let loose with the cannon with multiple shots, but it had no effect. Now granted I don't know how Voltron's construction and combining joints stack up compared to Devastator, but if this fight goes the same way that that one did, I don't see this ending well for Megatron. Yes there is the issue of Voltron's 5 minute time limit before energy is exhausted, but it only took Devastator a few seconds to take out Megs.

Someone brought up the point that Megatron's anger can get the best of him, that is certainly true at times. Fans know that when he is cool and collected he can be quite dangerous. In the original series he took out Bruticus with just one shot of his canon by aiming in a very presise spot that dissassembled him. One could argue that he could probably do the same with Devastator. As the trecherous Decepticon leader that he is, it only makes sense that he would know all of the weaknesses of his subordinates just in case they ever went rogue. But when he gets angry tactical intelligence tends to go out the window, and the fight with Devastator proved that. As such, if he charges into a fight with Voltron half cocked he's gonna get trashed.

But then again dreno 360 did bring up targeting Voltron's fuel reserves, which could work, but how would Megatron know where it is?

But just to show that I am not being biased,...

I remember reading somewhere that Megatron can also sub-dimensionally link his cannon to a black hole, generating even more powerful antimatter blasts. However, this ability is almost never used, as it leaves him extremely weak and vulnerable. If Voltron were hit with that things would get ugly, but I don't know if that ability was ever catagorized as part of the canon continuity or not.

Unless Megs has detailed info on Voltron that he can use to his advantage I'm going with the lion force on this one.

Form blazing sword!


My apologies for this unecessarily long winded post, but the mere idea of this battle really got me thinking.

Once again, fantastic work!

Megatron has more areas to target with his cannon; his speed, strength, power, and precision will decimate Voltron. Oh, unless he flies into their jaw-hands like he does to every other combined robot giant, then he'd be in trouble. Super awesome though! :) :thumbsup:

my thoughts exactly, if he keeps his distance and targets the blue lion (fuel reserves for voltron) he he separate the lions and overwhelm them, Glad you enjoyed!

haha definitely, though knowing megatron, he'll charge right in like the proud warrior he is and fire his cannon at point blank range out of pure rage. :P he's not one to "play it safe and smart." lol

yeah, he hates humans, and once he finds out voltron is piloted by humans his defenses may drop...leading to a sword through his chest.

I was working up a Voltron/Megatron sketch for fun...something to do waiting for the next battle. I may have to post it after all.

This challenge and the Kill Bill battle seem a lot tougher than....Medusa or Cobra Commander.

That said, I'm actually pysched for the Kill Bill battle...may try something very different...have some time to experiment.

Glad to see you're in the battle.

Have fun in SD! Get a George Perez sketch for me (just kidding).

this turned out well
the only thing that is throwing me off is the fact that megatron is in front of that landmass, yet Voltron is behind it and they're still "facing" each other
but really shouldn't megatron be looking back or something?

:icondreno360:
dreno360 Featured By Owner May 24, 2011  Professional General Artist
Thanks for the comment. What we tried to do was deal with the size issue of megatron vs voltron. There is a HUGE size different. Megatron would come up approx. to voltrons thighs, but we wanted them on equal footing so we had voltron kinda emerging from rock, or crashing into the ground (however you want want to look at it.) so the viewer and megatron is only seeing half of voltron's body. Megatron's body is facing us but his head is towards voltron. We edited it because at first his head was not even looking at voltron [link]

oh and megatron is kinda floating / hovering in the air as well. Thanks for the feedback. would of loved to see what you guys could come up with.

Ahh I see what your saying. But I never concerted to make it look like the real characters. The movie was good but the anime part was the best!
So don't tell anyone I'm going with an anime look. Plus it will make these girls look better. :D Topped off with Fusion action!!! And one of the things I love doing most...blood. I hate the color yellow, so I might have to leave colors out. At least this is the first match I had against another pencil artist. but he has done some color. I guess it's on of the more even matches for me so far. XD

Cool I wanted to go against Chalyward shortly after just joining B.A. Throw down some mean pencils for him.
I want to see if I can combine the look of my Bayonetta and mudusa, color wise. I don't think full color is me...idk, I'll find my my nitch.
Already done with inks, So I have plenty of time to get the gray scale in this.
