I was inspired to do this by :iconscurvypiratehog:

Not making it in a full-fledged countdown because...

1) This list has some predictable choices and there is already a lot said about them so I'll be brief.
2) I'll be really repetitive otherwise
3) I think I wouldn't be able to do them full justice anyway. I'm not up to levels of Joshscorcher or the Autarch of Flame in terms of countdowns after all.

So...I just like Sonic the hedgehog as a franchise, and so I give my top twelve characters. It was hard enough picking them as it is, even if I was making it a top twenty-five.

Why twelve? It's a lucky number in greek myth, since twelve represents perfection and refers to the pantheon of olympus. Adding one to it becomes the unlucky number thirteen. You expected that for an answer? Oh well; not beating around the bush, just the twelve I like most, here and now.

12 BEAN THE DYNAMITE

A character pulled from obscurity and into a full fledged character in the comics with a very entertaining personality. He just cracks me up. 

11 RELIC THE PIKA

At first I didn't like her...but over time she grew on me. She is kind of adorkable. She isn't just a filler for Julie-Su, she has a few fun quirks of her own. And her intelligence will prove useful in the future for Knuckles. 

(PS, am I the only one imaging Tabitha St. Germain as her voice actor?)

10 BUNNIE RABBOT

I like kickass girls. And it happens one of the main characters of the comics is such a girl. What better then a cyborg southern belle cowgirl rabbit who is the mother as well as the brawler of the team? 

9 ROTOR WALRUS

Poor guy doesn't get enough love. He was both the brain and brawn before Tails was established as a prodigy, so I was sad he was shoved aside in the comics for a while. I'm at least glad he got over his injury and back in the field again. I kind of miss the blubber on him, it's healthy for a walrus to have it. But seriously people, give him some love. He earned his spot on the team. 

8 EGGMAN/ROBOTNIK

Do I really need to say? He was Sonic's greatest foe since day one and without him, in any incarnation, there is just no Sonic franchise. Whether you like him over the top and silly like the games, where he is so much fun to watch, or the ruthless dictator that turns people into literal machines for conquest like Satam or the comics...the mad doctor, as fun or as awesomely dastardly as he got will forever be a staple of the franchise. He is doing his best to give us his worst and we like him for it. 

7 MEPHILES THE DARK

Even if 2006's story was convoluted, it did something right. Mephiles is one of them. Basically bringing the devil into a Sonic game. A lying, manipulative dark entity shapeshifter with a creepy laugh, awesome deep voice and the only villain from the games who succeeded in his goals: killing sonic and become Solaris. He was my favorite villain for a while and still ranks up pretty high.

6 METALLIX (aka Metal Sonic)

Eggman's greatest invention was a robot duplicate of Sonic who soon surpassed his counterpart and his programming; Whether becoming something close to a god with the data of twelve heroes and residual Chaos energy, or just being a powerful obstacle to overcome, he is probably the best evil copy in gaming history. There are also many cool version of him: Metal Sonic, Mecha Sonic, Metal Overlord...heck, Captain Metal and Shard are in thier own ways cool incarnations of Metal Sonic. Even in Sonic Boom he couldn't be just left out...because you just don't. You don't leave out the king of mechanical maniacalness. 

5 DR. FINITEVUS

This guy...this f***ing guy. He just screams badass. Nihilistic...creepy albino look (that make him really standout from all the generic echidnas), cool warp ring powers, able to shrug off blows from Knuckles himself and that cape! Who doesn't want a cape like that?...and it doesn't help he's bat shit insane. And insane characters are always the coolest villains. I'm mad at the reboot, now he's gone...But seriously, look at this guy and say he is not frightening. It is about time Knuckels got some rogues of his own and he got a good one.

4 SONIC THE HEDGEHOG

Sonic himself has to be on the list. Surprising he's not number one. The only reason is I like the other three more. But Sonic himself is cool as a character, he has to be to keep his franchise alive and successful all this time; He is heroic, cocky, has the attitude and is a snarky bastard. It's especially the snark. I love some snarkiness. What else do I need to say about him? He's sonic the f*** hedgehog, the fastest thing alive and just a cool character. I'm so glad that this mundo cool spikey guy started it all.

3 MILES ‘TAILS’ PROWER

I like Tails more then Sonic. He has all his powers plus some. He can spin-dash and be fast enough to catch up to the blue blur. He is also smart enough to build machinery from the simplest materials plus a fake Chaos Emerald, and he also has chaos powers like Sonic. And he's only a kid...who is arguably as smart, if not smarter then Robotnik himself. Combining brains, power, wisdom beyond his years but still a likable amount of child-like spirit, Tails is my favorite game character in the franchise.

2 SALLY ACORN

Sally Acorn was the first character ever that I remember seeing giving a middle finger to the princess in distress cliche. She was no Princess Peach. She didn't just take the fall of her kingdom lying down and leads an actual resistance against the invaders. Using her skills in tactics, diplomacy, stealth and martials arts to the table she was a strong female lead, which aren't enough from in any franchise since most franchises turn into sausage fests. Oh, and I'm a Sonally fan, sue me!

1 NICOLE THE HOLO-LYNX

Nicole is not only my favorite Sonic character but also my second favorite fictional character ever, only second to Raven from Teen Titans. For a little computer she is oddly enough the most...human or Mobian of the sonic cast. Her intelligence, desire to understand emotions and eventually becoming just as Mobian as her comrades as well as having a bit of snark at times (even if only  in the cartoons) there was a lot to like about her.

When I learned her intended backstory for Satam of being a childhood friend of Sally whose mind was infused in a computer, that bit of sadness sealed the deal for me and added to this already great character. I'm so glad they are bringing it in the comics now as well. So yeah, Nicole is just awesome. Cute, great personality, a character to relate to and having great backstory she is such a complete package she takes this spot by storm.

SONIC THE HEDGEHOG: MOBIUS GREATEST HEROES
SIREN SONG, THE NOVELIZATION PART II

Two battlefronts, and we’re starting off with the heroes fighting of the Screechers. Sonic rushed towards them, but they fire of soundwaves at all directions. Sonic often could reach speed of sounds, so the blasts were as fast as he was, so he was forced to make several turns as he avoided the Screechers’ screams. He found he could not get closer so decided to bury in the ground. The Screechers looked around and suddenly a few of them were scrapped when Sonic shot from the ground, before he vanished into the ground again. However, the Screechers weren’t caught off guard a second time and shot a soundwave to the spot Sonic was, as he was being knocked out of the ground.

“Ouch…they’re a lot smarter than they look.” Sonic noted. The things had used echolocation to locate Sonic’s position so he could not use the same trick again. But Sonic had another idea. He dug into the ground, popped up hard enough to drag a few chunks away with him, and kicked the chunks of ground in mid-air at the Screechers, knocking them down. He used the last, biggest chunk as a shield in front of him to protect him from the sound waves that the remaining Screechers fired, slowly making it crumble, but Sonic shot forward with a flying boost kick from the crumbling rock and knocked several more apart.

Tails flew up in the sky in the hopes of evading the screech-powered robots. But that didn’t help as the robots sported jet boosters in their legs and flew after him. Tails had to really pull off some aerial moves to dodge all the sound blasts. He then did a classic maneuver, where he rushed towards the ground and pulled up at the last second, making the Screechers crash into the ground. He thought he was done but another group of Screechers showed up. They fired soundwaves Tails wasn’t able to dodge and he was knocked out of the sky.

He looked around dazed as he saw the Screechers approached him. As they were ready to launch another screech, Tails activated the electric shield with his wristwatch, and the soundwaves hit the electric shield, making the electric pulses it was composed off burst out in a massive electric field that disabled all the surrounding Screechers. Tails sighed in relief.

Fiona grabbed her guns and started firing around, blowing off Screecher heads. However, after a few were scrapped, the others caught on and let out soundwaves from their mouths that made the bullets slow down or bounce off, making them useless. They then fired their soundwaves at Fiona, who quickly had to put her agility to the test to avoid them.

Fiona had an idea…something Nic showed her and while she wasn’t as good as Nic…she tried anyways. As she was firing the bullets this time, she flailed her guns around, making sure the bullets’ trajectories would bend…in a loop around the soundwaves, and into the head of the Screechers. Fiona felt a certain pride into pulling the trick off.

Sally activated the boosters in her jets and the blades in her gauntlets and shot forward. She got a few Screechers sliced up but she quickly had to pull back when some of them started to launch their screech attacks. She shifted her gauntlets to blaster and started firing at the Screechers. She was still outnumbered so she had to dodge more then she could fire. “This isn’t helping…I need a power boost.” Sally said as she wanted to pull power rings from her backback…only for a Screecher to jump her and rip it from her back. “Hey, give that back!” The Screecher tossed it in the air and readied its screech. Sally wanted to fire to stop the Screecher, but by the time she wrecked it, dangerous soundwaves already have ripped the backpack and power rings apart.

“There goes our edge!” Sally moaned as she was reduced to dodge and shoot again. “Come on, there has to be a good mod in it…” Sally said as she tried to find a useful function in her battle gauntlets. She then got her wish as the energy blades from her wrists shot out, began spinning like boomerangs, curving around the sound waves and slicing the Screecher heads off. “Thank you, Tails and Rotor.”

Bunnie stomped the ground to create a small shockwave to send the Screechers flying up, but they activated their jet boosters to soften their landing. But also distracted them long enough for Bunnie to start firing lasers and wreck them. She couldn’t spam them however as it drains her own energy. So she had to resort to the stretch function of her arm to take them from a distance. However, one Screecher hit her arm as it stretched towards her and sent it flying back into her own face. Bunnie was knocked back, and barely recovered to dodge another barrage of soundwaves.

“No bunch of motormouths are taking me down!” Bunnie said as she lifted a nearby vehicle from the Troopers they fought earlier. The Screechers used their soundwave to slow down the falling vehicle in its tracks, making it land harmlessly in front of them. Bunnie aimed her laser at the fuel tank and it blew up in the faces of the Screechers. “I wish Ah had a one liner lahk Sonic…that would have made it complete.”

Nicole was still busy fixing the power line, and was in its final stages. But the Screechers started to bother her and her friends were having troubles holding her back. She had to look over her shoulders every five seconds or less to see if no Screecher would sneak up. And then blast it with her own built-in laser blasters. But after some difficulty she was finally done. “All right, now I can take the fight to them…” Nicole said as she then jumped directly in the battlefield, but that drew attention from more Screechers.

They started firing her soundwaves at Nicole, who put up a shield of ring energy from her Power Ring Matrix. She couldn’t lower the shield because that would give a split second of distraction the Screechers could exploit. So she had no other choice by pushing the limits on her matrix and let the ring energy shield burst our around her like Tails’ electric shield earlier and scrap the Screechers. “Power Ring Matrix low…But it’ll hold…I just hope Rotor and Antoine are doing better than we do.”

The Jaegernaut piloted by Rotor and the Siren Bull piloted by Cyan were engaging in their own battle. The Siren Bull started by rushing forward, horns forward, ready to skewer the Jaegernaut on it. However, the Jaegernaut caught the horns in his hands…though he held his ground, the bull started pushing him back. But Rotor wouldn’t go down so easily. He then turned a wheel and the Jaegernaut smacked the bull robot sideways into the ground. He then jumped on its back and started pulling the head back, more than the neck joint normally should allow in an attempt to rip it off.

“Not that I feel panic, but I am not going to lose that easy, big boy.” Cyan noted as the robot bull started to get up and try to get the Jaegernaut off, and Rotor’s mech was basically doing a robotic rodeo.

“If Bunnie was here, she would have loved this!” Rotor noted. “Yee-haw, get along little doggy…it sounds so wrong if I say it.” The Jaegernaut held on tightly and it didn’t seem it would give up so easily. The Siren Bull charged electricity through its horns again, which were still held by Rotor. The mech was being shocked, and Rotor along with it. “Argh!”

This allowed the Siren bull to toss off the Jaegernaut. The Siren Bull then scooped up the Jaegernaut with his horns and then tossed the Jaegernaut over its head and then send it crashing. The Siren Bull was ready to finish it as its left forehoof scraped the ground as steam came from the nuzzle of the robot. It then charged, horns forward again.

Rotor had received a terrible shock earlier, but the mech had absorbed most damage, and he was still kicking. “Activate Uber-drive!” he said as he pushed a button on the console. The mech stood up again and the pistons on his arms produced steam and retracted in the arms, and buzzing and humming from all the systems in the arms came. One swipe of the arm, and the Bull was knocked aside and the tips of its horns broke off.

“That’s unexpected.” Cyan noted, even if she really didn’t sound surprised. The Jaegernaut raised its arms, ready to smash in the mech. “Uh-oh!” she said, yet still it sounded monotone. The arms came down, and Cyan whipped up the shield to protect herself, but the shields started to crack. “I think it’s time for me to bail!” Cyan said as she pressed the eject button just as the shield broke and the Jaegernaut smashed the head of the Siren Bull into crumpled metal. “That was very interesting…I hope he and I will meet again…” Cyan thought.

“Rotor: did I just save New Mobotropolis?” Rotor thought.

“You clearly did. Your efforts are admirable.” The Program responded.

“The others are not going to believe this.” Rotor noted.

“You do realize I have recorded footage of the attack?” The Program noted.

“It’s an expression…” Rotor noted.

At the site with the Screechers, the robots were finally dismantled, all of them. The heroes were tired and looked bruised, but they had worse. “Man, that was tough.” Sonic noted. “But at least that’s over.”

“Good thing, my Power Ring Matrix couldn’t be pushed any further.” Nicole noted.

Sally approached the uniformed troopers and once again confronted the squid girl. “Okay, who are you guys and what did you want, did you try to destroy us? Why for? If you’re not working for Robotnik, then who is your master?”

“Keep wondering, keep pondering, pretty princess. It won’t matter anymore soon enough. Because the war will finally end. And you should be grateful to us for ending it.” The squid girl noted.

“What the heck are you blabbing about?” Fiona asked.

“That would spoil the surprise.” The squid girl replied.

“You are under arrest. The Royal guard will be picking you up real soon and you’ll be put in jail for a while. You can make it easier and tell us anything, or make it harder and remain trapped.” Sally said.

“I’m sorry, you said something, I was kind of dreaming away.” The squid girl mocked.

“We’ll get the answers from her later. Meanwhile I may see if I can get any answers from these little things.” Nicole said as she picked up one of the heads of the Screechers. “Quite a neat design…if only it didn’t try to kill us.” It was then that another sound came from the Screecher head, but it sounded like the recording of someone singing. Nicole seemed a bit fixated by the sound.

“It still kicks!” Sonic said as he rushed over to Nicole and kicked the thing out of her hand, sending it flying away. “It didn’t attack…but I didn’t want to take any risks. You okay, Nicole?” Sonic asked.

“No worries…I am good. I feel better than ever.” Nicole said. She had a bit of a weird grin on her face and something in her optics seemed off. But the heroes didn’t notice.

We cut back to Magenta, the dragonfly girl who was apparently behind it all. Footage of Nicole appeared on the screen. At that point, Cyan came back in. “I’m sorry sis, I failed to defeat their mech.” She said, like she tried to sound regretful, and fail.

“Nothing to worry, little sis. You did what you meant to do, lower their supply of power ring energy. The Screechers have done the same for Nicole herself. That means they’ll be vulnerable. We’ll be able to take the city and Project Utopia will unfold. You did great.”

“And so did the Steves!” Amarill said.

“Are you still calling them that?” Magenta asked annoyed. “But who the hell cares, everything is going great, it’s no use getting worked up about such a detail. I can almost taste it…the new world…it will be so beautiful. I think for the first time, things are looking good for us.”

“I must admit that I almost got a sentiment out of recent events. Maybe they are going well.” Cyan said.

“When did you feel?” Amarill asked surprised.

“When fighting that walrus boy in his mech. There was something about him…so determined…so crafty, you know. It was really interesting how much he was into it…” Cyan then noted Amarill had a huge smile on her face. “Why are you looking like that at me?”

“Isn’t it cute? Cici has a boyfriend. Oh, isn’t it cute? The girl who has the most trouble opening up has found her Romeo.” Amarill said as she made a heart shape with her hands.

“No…it’s not like that…he’s just interesting and…is this what it feels like to be embarrassed? Neat…but seriously, stop that, I don’t have a crush!” Cyan noted.

“Cyan and walrus boy, sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G!” Amarill sang.

“Will you two act seriously for once? We are nearing what we worked for our entire lives! Geez, why do I put up with your two?” Magenta said annoyed.

“Because you love us!” Amarill said in her usual cutesy way.

“She has a point, sis.” Cyan added.

“Group hug!” Amarill said, pulling her siblings in a hug. Cyan looked indifferent, Magenta looked annoyed, but went along with it.

Later that day, the Freedom Fighters had regrouped back at New Mobotropolis. “I don't know who these goons were, and they are not going to tell us who they work of either. And then that attack from that giant mech…Good thing you managed to hold out, Rotor.” Sally said.

“ Me too…but it doesn’t feel like a victory, because it’s not over. Buttnik gets competition, is that good news or bad news?”

“Worst is that we're out of power rings and even with the connection restored it takes a while to get another one. We're on reserve power now.” Tails explained. “I need to work on a few inventions, but we don’t know much about this enemy so it can only take us so far.” Tails said.

“Just finish what you started, it’ll be useful regardless…it does bring up something…we haven’t seen Nicole’s backup program since we returned, where is it? Nicole?” Nicole didn’t seem to pay attention, just humming to herself.

“Nicole, you are getting any of this?” Sonic asked.

Nicole snapped out of her trance. “Of course I do. In fact, I am going to work on a little project that will solve all of our problems. Don't wait up for me, just relax yourselves.” Nicole said as she digitally teleported away.

Sonic raised an eyebrow. “Did she seem off to you?”

“Maybe...sound waves may have scrambled something. She’s probably still recovering.” Tails said.

Nicole has isolated herself from everyone, and started tapping into a certain frequency, a holographic screen appeared, with Magenta’s face on it. “I pledge my allegiance to you, mistress.” Nicole said, in a tone that was way too similar to that in her Iron Nicole days.

“Welcome to the crew, program…you are going to be part of something big, a new, better world will be created. And I see my recruitment has worked masterfully.” Magenta noted.

“No one suspects a thing, the next phase of your glorious plan can begin, my mistress.” Nicole replied.

“Very well, Program. I think it's time for me and my sisters to hit the stage. I just need you to prepare everyone for our arrival…because we are going to put up one hell of a show.” Magenta noted.

“I’ll do everything you say…Mistress.” Nicole said with an evil grin on her face.

TO BE CONTINUED
Just a few things I'll reveal about my retooling of MGH, Mobius' New Greatest Heroes. First, the character rosters...

The Knothole Freedom Fighters, they remain basically mostly unchanged, they still include Sonic, Sally, Tails, Antoine, Nicole, Rotor and Bunnie. Other characters join them over time of course. 

The Chaotix and Knuckles work seperately, have their own adventures but of course are still good friends. Knuckles will not be alone on his island however, as Relic the Pika and her assistant Fixit the Gizoid are by his side. Also; I'm kind of mashing up Shade and Julie-Su in a sort of newish girl echidna. She will still be called Shade and have several features of her namesake, mostly looks, the Nocturnus tech and such, but also some elements from Julie-Su, like cybernetic implants, firearms and her real name being Aman-Da (which was Julie-Su's real name in SSZ). Shade was based on Julie-Su so why not? I equally support both girls with Knuckles anyways.

The Chaotix themselves have a few changes in roster as well. Vector, Espio and Charmy are still the core team. They are joined by Mighty armadillo of course, and you already know about Yoyo Wasp replacing Saffron...and Matilda armadillo, Mighty's sister is also part of the team. I didn't know what to do with Ray and I like Matilda a lot. 

The wolf pack is probably my favorite freedom fighter team, not counting chaotix or knothole, so I may be tempted to give them more of their own adventures. And there is a new surprise member to be added to the team. Not telling yet!

Robotnik will have Snively as his right-hand man of course. Heavy and Bomb, or at least their evil versions I keep using are his main robo henchmen and of course, it will be a matter of time before another doll-obsessed vampiric bio-weapon makes her debut. 

Since it is set in a Satam-like world, minor characters from that show get a bigger role. The Wizard Lazaar, the Krakken and a few others get a few more appearances. Also, since I'm bringing in unused Satam concepts, we see a version of Nate Morgan that was intended for the cartoon. 

Universe-wise...when it comes to chaos emeralds, it will be like the archie comics' early run, there are more then seven emeralds lying around. Still rare, but still quite obtainable. And Mobius doesn't have only green emeralds, but various colors. Like the early comics Knuckles has a small collection of chaos emeralds to keep his island afloat instead of a master emerald.

He was my favorite villain for a while and still ranks up pretty high.

6 METALLIX (aka Metal Sonic)

Eggman's greatest invention was a robot duplicate of Sonic who soon surpassed his counterpart and his programming; Whether becoming something close to a god with the data of twelve heroes and residual Chaos energy, or just being a powerful obstacle to overcome, he is probably the best evil copy in gaming history. There are also many cool version of him: Metal Sonic, Mecha Sonic, Metal Overlord...heck, Captain Metal and Shard are in thier own ways cool incarnations of Metal Sonic. Even in Sonic Boom he couldn't be just left out...because you just don't. You don't leave out the king of mechanical maniacalness. 

5 DR. FINITEVUS

This guy...this f***ing guy. He just screams badass. Nihilistic...creepy albino look (that make him really standout from all the generic echidnas), cool warp ring powers, able to shrug off blows from Knuckles himself and that cape! Who doesn't want a cape like that?...and it doesn't help he's bat shit insane. And insane characters are always the coolest villains. I'm mad at the reboot, now he's gone...But seriously, look at this guy and say he is not frightening. It is about time Knuckels got some rogues of his own and he got a good one.

Sonic himself has to be on the list. Surprising he's not number one. The only reason is I like the other three more. But Sonic himself is cool as a character, he has to be to keep his franchise alive and successful all this time; He is heroic, cocky, has the attitude and is a snarky bastard. It's especially the snark. I love some snarkiness. What else do I need to say about him? He's sonic the f*** hedgehog, the fastest thing alive and just a cool character. I'm so glad that this mundo cool spikey guy started it all.

3 MILES ‘TAILS’ PROWER

I like Tails more then Sonic. He has all his powers plus some. He can spin-dash and be fast enough to catch up to the blue blur. He is also smart enough to build machinery from the simplest materials plus a fake Chaos Emerald, and he also has chaos powers like Sonic. And he's only a kid...who is arguably as smart, if not smarter then Robotnik himself. Combining brains, power, wisdom beyond his years but still a likable amount of child-like spirit, Tails is my favorite game character in the franchise.

2 SALLY ACORN

Sally Acorn was the first character ever that I remember seeing giving a middle finger to the princess in distress cliche. She was no Princess Peach. She didn't just take the fall of her kingdom lying down and leads an actual resistance against the invaders. Using her skills in tactics, diplomacy, stealth and martials arts to the table she was a strong female lead, which aren't enough from in any franchise since most franchises turn into sausage fests. Oh, and I'm a Sonally fan, sue me!

1 NICOLE THE HOLO-LYNX

Nicole is not only my favorite Sonic character but also my second favorite fictional character ever, only second to Raven from Teen Titans. For a little computer she is oddly enough the most...human or Mobian of the sonic cast. Her intelligence, desire to understand emotions and eventually becoming just as Mobian as her comrades as well as having a bit of snark at times (even if only  in the cartoons) there was a lot to like about her.

Did you drop Nick's TMNT? I can't blame you if you did, but I will admit that I'll miss your posts dedicated to taking the piss out of that horrible cartoon.

Hey, my friend. You know why else I put Transformers Prime above Transformers Animated.

It's also because the Autobots seem a bit more evenly matched with the Decepticons. Sure the Autobots were still outnumbered, but the difference is the Autobots have guns in Prime, while in Animated the team on Earth does not (At least at first).

Plus it took 5 Autobots to take down 
Starscream. And Animated Optimus Prime is no match for Animated Megatron (At least at first). I'm one of those people who think that Optimus Prime and Megatron should be evenly matched, just like in Prime.

Maybe so...that's a reason I can understand.

But on the other hand, it was more satisfying if the heroes were to overcome obstacles bigger then them. And in the end it showed the heroes came a long way, as Optimus was able to fight Megatron one on one.

I guess so, but I also find that the best back-story for Optimus Prime and Megatron is in Transformers Prime as well.

G1 had its fair share of problems, but that's forgivable because Transformers was still trying to find their place.

Bay's Movies don't really explain much about their back-story, and neither does the Unicron Trilogy.

RiD gave a good rivalry between Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus, but this is about Optimus Prime and Megatron

But I found that making Megatron like a father/older brother figure to Optimus makes the betrayal of Megatron so much worse and so much more tragic. It makes the rivalry between the two more personal.

Plus in Prime, it seems that even through they are sworn enemies, Optimus Prime and Megatron do respect each other. (Some of the different Transformers series have Optimus Prime and Megatron be like this too, even G1)

Animated however, I don't get the since of rivalry (As in Arch-Enemies) between the two, Megatron doesn't even call Optimus Prime by his name.
