Birth is liquid mercury.
Just a spark
and potential to be an animal.
Puberty is a an upgrade, new abilities,
Strength. The power to scrap enemies
A new gun and new look.
Death is when Dinobot
just never returns
(except when he’s cloned, of course)
Deathbed speeches are always heroic
Evil is incompetent, an oversized metal bee
The story arc simply spins off
