According to the story told in Alex Irvine’s Transformers: Exodus, Optimus and Megatron were associated at some point in their history, revealing that Optimus was once a Decepticon and Megatron was once an Autobot.

When Unicron awoke, threatening life on Earth, Optimus Prime used the power of the Leadership Matrix to disable Unicron’s spark, costing him his memories as Prime and reverting him to his former personality, Orion Pax.
