Prime vs Tron
From my perspective, Optimus Prime best resembles Beowulf’s character. Beowulf was a strong leader of all the Geats and strove to prevail against all evil. He sacrificed his life on several occasions to protect his people and prevail against any villainous creature. Like Beowulf, Optimus Prime is the leader of all Autobots. He has a strong leadership against his race for he has always shown strength even at his weakest points. To him, justice shall always triumph against evil. He strives to protect his and the human race from extinction against the Decepticons. He puts his life on the line to protect those important to him. Optimus Prime has similar traits to Beowulf therefore he is whose best to represent Beowulf’s character.
When I think of the Dragon I can only think of one person to perceive his chaotic actions and that person is Megatron. In Beowulf, the Dragon is a menacing creature on a rampage to destroy everyone and everything. He has no mercy. He will destroy anyone and anything unless stopped from doing so. Megatron is the destructive leader of the Decepticons. No kind of morality exists within him. He has no care for anything or anyone. His mentality is set on ultimate power. He is set on achieving this and will destroy anything and anyone whom prevents him from doing so. Both the Dragon and Megatron are chaotic, destructive creatures who will not stop at causing total destruction unless forcibly stopped. Thus, Megatron best resembles the Dragon.

A slave had intruded a tower filled with treasure and had stolen a challis not knowing that the tower has the home of the Dragon. Angered by the theft, the Dragon awoken and went through the village destroying anything and everything in sight. Beowulf heard of the destruction and readied himself for...
