  • "Sterner Stuff" is an idiom coined by William Shakespeare, classically notated in this quote from his play Julius Caesar: "When that the poor have cried, Caesar hath wept; Ambition should be made of sterner stuff..."
  • It could be a reference to Optimus Prime's incredulous response to Megatron's ploy to stall his actions in the original, 1986 Transformers movie. "You, who are without mercy, now plead for it? I thought you were made of sterner stuff."
