* BackFromTheDead: A number of characters who should be dead just... appear. Hi, Prowl/Ironhide/Wheeljack! This is due to Japan not getting ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformersTheMovie'' until 1989. The appearances are largely of the blink and you'll miss it cameo variety, so it's not too bad.

Later Japanese fiction would establish the the Prowl and Wheeljack seen here are actually from another universe, and they replaced their deceased counterparts.

The show received a [[SoBadItsGood hilariously bad]] English dub by Omni Productions in Hong Kong, which gained notoriety after being broadcast on [=StarTV=] in Singapore. While the dub was perfectly comprehensible, it did contain some BlindIdiotTranslation, which spawned a few short-lived {{meme}}s. If you were English, Mindwipe's hypnotism somehow became 'magic', proving that whoever translated the show didn't even read the title before they started. There was also no attempt to replicate the G1 voice actors, resulting in characters like [[TheOtherDarrin Dumby!Blurr and Intellectual!Grimlock.]]

* GenreSavvy:
** Galvatron doesn't trust Scorponok for a second, especially after he retakes leadership. He routinely tries to keep an eye on the Headmaster leader until he takes a serious turn with the IdiotBall.
** Scorponok knows that challenging Galvatron head on is fruitless even when he has his Transtector, and prefers to use patience and cunning to bait Galvatron into fighting the Autobots again.

* ContinuitySnarl: ''One of the biggest issues in the series''. Optimus in the [[WesternAnimation/TransformersTheMovie film]] dies from his battle with Megatron. Here... he gets randomly shot by a Decepticon laser fire. Though you can't blame ToeiAnimation or Takara for that due to the NoExportForYou issues regarding the movie

* BlindIdiotTranslation: The hilarious Malaysian dub, so beloved amongst ''comedy'' anime enthusiasts it was included in the 2008 DVD release as an audio option.

* Targetmasters result from the fusion of standard-size Transformers with Headmaster-sized bots. The smaller bots transform into guns which can then be wielded by their partners. The Targetmasters' ability to select targets independently of their wielders allows the wielders to use to guns separately.

** An example can be seen in the episode where Optimus Prime and Rodimus Prime team-up to take out the Decepticons: In Japan, Optimus Prime was called "Convoy" while Rodimus Prime was called "Rodimus Convoy". The original narrator describes the Optimus Prime and Rodimus Prime team-up as "Two Convoys", which makes sense. Due to the literal translation, the dub's narrator mistakenly describes the team-up as "Two Optimus Primes".

* KarmaHoudini: Sixshot kills numerous characters in cruel ways ([[spoiler: including Ultra Magnus]]) and only rejects the Deceptions because Scorponok tried to kill him. He still gets to walk away at the end of the series, suffering no punishment.
