This is how Hot Rod and Ryan vs Optimus and Twilight goes in Dark Awakening.

Ryan F-Freeman: Twilight?

Hot Rod: Optimus. Front and center.

[Optimus and Twilight emerge from the smoke]

Optimus Prime: We've been waiting.

Twilight Sparkle: I've been waiting for this chance.

Hot Rod: We're taking command.

Ryan F-Freeman: And it's final.

Optimus Prime: What... took... you so long?

Twilight Sparkle: How?

[Optimus and Twilight strain and grasp their heads in pain]

Optimus Prime: What did they DO to us?

Twilight Sparkle: Why... is... my life... not the normal one?

[A flashback happens]

[The flashback shows the three Quintesson judges examining the bodies of Optimus Prime and Princess Twilight Sparkle]

Quintesson Judge #2: And some lingering remnants of their memories and personalities.

Quintesson Judge #3: But without our circuit implants, they would be utterly mindless, an ordinary machine and organic.

Quintesson Judge #1: A robotic and organic zombie.

[Flashback ends]

[Ryan notices Twilight]

Ryan F-Freeman: Twilight? Maybe you need to come with me and forget Prime. [grabs her hoove]

Hot Rod: You're both very sick. Let us help.

Optimus Prime: We... have... to... [punches Ryan away from Twilight and fires his gun at them]

Twilight Sparkle: Not let you... get away. [fires her magic at them] Optimus... is my... true best friend.

Hot Rod: We don't want to fight you.

Ryan F-Freeman: I will help you remember.

Optimus Prime: Then... stop us.

Twilight Sparkle: Then you will meet your destines.

Hot Rod: How? What do we do?

Ryan F-Freeman: You get Twilight, Hot Rod. I'll handle Prime.

Optimus Prime: Please, Hot Rod! [continues firing]

Twilight Sparkle: Ryan... Help me. [continues firing her magic]

[Smoke fills the room and Optimus and Twilight fire at Hot Rod and Ryan's shadows]

Optimus Prime: No... no!

Twilight Sparkle: How?!

[Hot Rod and Ryan emerge from the smoke and Hot Rod takes Optimus' gun and throws it]

Hot Rod: Ha. Fooled you.

Ryan F-Freeman: I was kidding, Twilight. You been playing a game I planned. So, I can help you.

Optimus Prime: Not... a game! Matrix makes me too strong!

Twilight Sparkle: This... isn't... a game!

Hot Rod: Now there's a unique complaint!

Ryan F-Freeman: No comment.

[Optimus wails on Hot Rod and Twilight wails on Ryan. Optimus lets Hot Rod in a full nelson, straining him till something burbles and melts all the way through Hot Rod's chest and Twilight zaps Ryan then Ryan's Matrix starts to glow]

Optimus Prime: If you lose -- Autobots.... all... destroyed!

Twilight Sparkle: And your friendship... will be lost.

[Ryan spins and hits Optimus]

Hot Rod: Thanks for the tip!

Ryan F-Freeman: We can keep that in mind for the Malgus cluster. Or is it Formax?

[Hot Rod and Ryan toss Optimus and Twilight across the room, severing one of Optimus' arms in the process]

Hot Rod: Optimus... can we stop now?

Ryan F-Freeman: Twilght... Let my Element of Harmony show you.

[Prime and Twilight groan painfully and Prime kicks them across the room. Optimus grabs his rifle and he and Twilight approach Ryan and Hot Rod]

Optimus Prime: You... should... have... finished us.

Twilight Sparkle: In order too

Hot Rod: Believe me! We tried!

Ryan F-Freeman: I hope... Crash can be a Prime when I use my Matrix.

[Prime takes point-blank aim at the terrified Hot Rod and Twilight aims her horn at Ryan and both prepare to fire, when the Matrix of Leadership flares up again and Twilight's crown glows when Ryan's Matrix glows]

Optimus Prime: Until... all... are.... one!

Twilight Sparkle: Light... the road to... recovery!

[Optimus drops his rifle and opens his chest and brings out the Matrix]

Optimus Prime: Monsters. They made us... weapons... to destroy the very ones... we loved in life.

Twilight Sparkle: And kill all... aliens...

[Optimus puts the Matrix back in Hot Rod]

Optimus Prime: But you will save them. Rodimus Prime.

Twilight Sparkle: You too, Prince Ryan F-Freeman Prime.

[Optimus and Twilight leave]

[Ryan makes a bow before hearing the voice of Arcee]

Arcee: Rodimus!

[Our heroes find them]

Ultra Magnus: Thank the stars we found you.

Rodimus Prime: Optimus... Twilight...

Kup: The ship's being blown to pieces. We're evacuating.

Ryan F-Freeman: Unless if you want to join the Allspark with me, then leave.

[The heroes evacuate]
