Confrontation is the ninth episode of Armada. It first aired in the United States on October 25, 2002 on Cartoon Network.
Cyclonus captures Billy and Fred to trade them for the Mini-Cons.
Billy and Fred remember Hot Shot's rescue while Fred eats chips. They see Rad and the gang and go after them. Cyclonus sees Rad going into a forest and followes. When he fails to catch Rad, he grabs Billy and Fred, instructing Rad to tell Optimus Prime to bring the Mini-Cons to an old mining town if he wants Billy and Fred. When the Autobots reach the town, a battle begins while Billy and Fred (unsuccessfully) try to capture Leader-1. Rad, Carlos, Alexis, and the Mini-Cons find them, only to be captured by Megatron. Optimus surrenders the Mini-Cons at first, but Megatron (to no one's surprise) tricks him. Hot Shot lands a punch, forcing Megatron to drop the children and Mini-Cons, except for Rad. Fred uses Laserbeak long enough to distract Megatron while Hot Shot punches him, (again) and Billy and Fred finally meet the Autobots.
