* BadBoss: Galvatron and Scorponok try to kill Sixshot, and in both instances this causes their plans to fail.
* BackstabBackfire: Galvatron planned t banish Scorponok and the Headmasters after he got his hands on the alloy. He and Scorponok later do it to Sixshot and it isint hard to see that they proably could have won had they not tried to kill him.



* BullyingADragon: Galvatron and Scorponok think it is a smart decision to try to murder Sixshot, who just happens to be their second in command and someone who is proably the only person capable of taking all 4 Headmasters. This really backfired on them.



* GenreSavvy:
** Galvatron dosent 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.



* KarmaHoudini: Sixshot kills numerous characters in cruel ways ([[spoiler: including Ultra Magnus]]) and only rejects the Deceptions because he finds out that Galvatron plans to cannibalize him to upgrade himself. He still gets to walk away at the end of the series, suffering no punishment.

He still gets to walk away at the end of the series, suffering no punishment.


Added DiffLines:

* KnightofCerebereus: Scorponok turns up the seriousness of the show in that he actually proves to a very effective leader, even if he dosent fight initially at least.


Added DiffLines:

* NonActionBigBad: Subverted. Scorponok dosent engage the Autobots in a physical fight until Episode 15, when his Transtector makes him almost uneatable.


Added DiffLines:

* TheStrategist: Galvatron shows some serious strategic skill when he embarks on a planet plundering expedition by having Sixshot pose as him using his powers, along with previous episodes where he tries to neutralize the Autobots through science rather than a head on fight. Scorponok in his first stint as leader forces the Autobots to keep focused on Earth until he decides to destroy Mars and when his weak spot is exposed, avoids fighting, preferring underhanded methods until he can flee. If he hadant grasped the VillianBall his plot would have worked.

* TheUnreveal:
** Sixshot being revealed as the blackmailer with six different forms, which would probably be more dramatic if he hadn't been making appearances since the first episode, and if he didn't have a recognisable shape.
** Fortress Maximus being a headmaster, given he appeared in his head form several episodes before.

* TookALevelInDumbass: Several, actually. ''TransformersHeadmasters'' inexplicably changed Cyclonus and Scourge from genuinely menacing and formidable warriors into mentally-retarded DirtyCoward IneffectualSympatheticVillain comic reliefs who manage little more than cheap childish {{slapstick}} whenever they appear.

** [[spoiler:Also notably Soundwave and Blaster, who kill each other in battle but are later rebuilt]]rebuilt as Soundblaster and Twincast, respectively. They aren't much different from Soundwave and Blaster, aside from the fact that Soundblaster is black instead of blue, and Twincast is blue instead of red, as well as the fact their toys were retooled to now hold two cassettes each instead of one.]]

* EvilSoundsDeep: Zarak, as voiced by Banjo Ginga.



* FaceFramedInShadow: Zarak's entire body manages this, remaining concealed no matter where or when he is. Once he even manages it while surrounded by flames. It stops after episode 15.

* TooDumbToLive: Daniel, Daniel, and Daniel again. But a key moment would be when he tries attacking a plant monster that can give Transformers a hard time with a ''stick''.

Added DiffLines:

* ChangingOfTheGuard: Some characters get explicitly written out while others just stop appearing all together, but by the end of the series pretty much all of the non-human cast are new additions.

* ExiledFromContinuity: Omega Supreme and Sky Lynx don't appear in this series at all. This is because their toys were designed by a then-rival to Takara (The company responsible for the Diaclone toys the original Transformer characters were based on), who didn't want the competition's creations in the show.
This list shows the last 10 events of 68. Show all.
