Omega Prime is a fictional character from the Transformers series. He is the combined form of Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus.
Transformers: Robots in Disguise
Omega Prime (God Fire Convoy) is the ultimate Transformer created by the combination of Optimus Prime (Fire Convoy) and Ultra Magnus (God Magnus) in Transformers: Robots in Disguise. By using power from the Matrix and Fortress Maximus (Brave Maximus), he was able to defeat Galvatron (Devil Gigatron) and his Predacons (Destronger). His tech specs indicate that his powers are of an unknown level, possibly surpassing those of even Fortress Maximus, and is the Autobots' overall commander. However, his human virtues are his only weakness.
Omega Prime was recurring character in season 3 of Transformers: Robots in Disguise. He first appeared in the episode "Ultra Magnus: Forced Fusion!" and last appear in the series finale "The Final Battle".
After convalescing on an island after a brutal fight with Ultra Magnus, Optimus was attacked by Megatron and the Decepticons. Ultra Magnus showed after having followed Sky-Byte via a hidden tracking device. Feigning compassion and understanding his brother's heavy burden in carrying the Matrix, Ultra Magnus pretended to offer Prime his helping hand, only to seize it and force the two of them to combine. What he didn't expect, though, was that Optimus had as much control over their new body as Magnus did. His plan to steal the power of the Matrix backfired and he had to cooperate with Prime to defeat the Decepticons.
Despite this setback from Magnus's point of view, the pair would regularly combine, issuing Megatron and his men with a string of defeats until Omega Prime was able to definitively defeat the Predacon leader in the Sahara Desert. However Scourge was able to activate Fortress Maximus and Megatron returned in a new form as Galvatron. Even Omega Prime's great power was unable to overcome such odds. Luckily, the human boy Koji Onishi was able to stop Fortress Maximus's rampage.
A rematch saw Omega Prime pitting his arsenal against Maximus in a desert without leaving a scratch on the gigantic Transformer, but he proved more than capable for seeing off Galvatron and Sky-Byte. When Galvatron brought the spaceship Megastar to a battle, Omega Prime attacked it and was promptly "blown away like a tumbleweed on the prairie", as X-Brawn put it.
After the defeat of the Megastar, Omega Prime attempted to confront Galvatron, but the evil Decepticon unleashed hordes of cyber-bats which took control of the world's children. Prime was forced to call a retreat. Optimus managed to persuade Magnus to combine with him one last time. Omega Prime challenged Galvatron to a duel at the Earth's core, and the power of Earth's children provided him with the Matrix Blade, with which he was able to defeat Galvatron for good.
In "Homecoming", in the core of Cybertron, Primus and Alpha Trion summoned Omega Prime to help Optimus Primal in his struggles against Unicron and the Cauldron.
In "Revelations", as the battle against Unicron continued, Omega Prime fought alongside Autobot and Maximal alike against the Chaos-Bringer's generals. When the Cauldron suddenly began dissipating, Omega Prime did his best to guide as many Children of Primus as possible through the vortex home. On his own journey, however, he was swept up in an inter-dimensional matter interlink by the former Mini-Con named Over-Run, deposited on a Cybertron threatened by a gigantic black hole which marked Unicron's passing. Omega Prime arrived in time to use his boot of justice to stop Nemesis Prime from using the Dead Matrix to revive Unicron. Omega Prime later joined Sentinel Maximus, Skyfall, and Downshift in fighting the Mini-Con Civil War, on the asteroid colonies surrounding Cybertron. Gatling lasers, rocket storms, Omega arsenal blasts...all proved fruitless when Unicron himself joined the fray. Omega Prime and Sentinel Maximus did their best to hold off the Chaos-Bringer, until Primus himself emerged from the core of Cybertron, transforming his planetary form into a robot mode. Unicron fled, and Optimus and Magnus joined Sentinel Maximus in pursuing him through space.
In "Ask Vector Prime", an alternate reality was revealed in which Omega Prime killed Megatron only for him to be revived as Megabolt, a villainous construct intended to control Fortress Maximus.
