Freedom is the right of all sentient beings.
~ Optimus Prime

Ironhide: Why are we fighting to save the humans? They're a primitive and violent race.

Optimus Prime: Were we so different? They're a young species. They have much to learn. But I've seen goodness in them. Freedom is the right of all sentient beings. You all know there's only one way to end this war: we must destroy the Cube. If all else fails, I will unite it with the spark in my chest.

Ratchet: That's suicide! The Cube is raw power, it could destroy you both!

Optimus Prime: A necessary sacrifice to bring peace to this planet. We cannot let the humans pay for our mistakes. It's been an honor serving with you all.

~ Ironhide, Optimus Prime, and Ratchet - Transformers (June, 2007)

For in my spark, I know that this is not the end... but merely a new beginning. Simply put... another transformation.
~ Optimus Prime - Transformers Prime: Predacons Rising (October, 2013)

Optimus Prime: I was forged Orion Pax. As war began, I was called Optimus Prime. Now some call me The Arisen, the Thirteenth Prime. But the masks are gone now. I am Orion Pax. Before this... who were you?

Unicron's Creator: So long ago... I can't remember. But I know the name of my daughter, who your kind murdered...

Optimus Prime: Then that shall be the word. Rather than the fire of hatred... let her name—her memory—light this dark hour.

~ IDW Optimus Prime allows Unicron's creator to die knowing compassion - Transformers: Unicron #6 (November, 2018)

Optimus Prime is the awe-inspiring leader of the Autobot forces. Selfless and endlessly courageous, he is the complete opposite of his mortal enemy Megatron. Originally a mere civilian dock-worker named Orion Pax, he was chosen by the Matrix of Leadership to become a Prime, the first in a number of heavy burdens he has been forced to bear. Another is his bringing of the Transformers' conflict to Earth. Every casualty, human or Cybertronian, weighs heavily on his spark. He does not show this side to his soldiers, and he never succumbs to despair. The Autobots need a decisive, charismatic leader, and that is what he gives them. It was that leadership that turned the tide of the Great War.

On the battlefield, there are few who rival Optimus Prime's prowess. He is easily the strongest of any Autobot his size, and his ion blaster and his energon-axe are deadly weapons. He would sacrifice his life to protect his fellow Autobots or those under their care and does so on a regular basis. His compassion for other sentient beings is his only real weakness, and one the Decepticons have taken advantage of time and again... though it's also the source of his strength!
