The show received a [[SoBadItsGood hilariously bad]] English dub by Omni Productions in Malaysia, 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 Retarded!Blurr and Intellectual!Grimlock.]]

* 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.

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

** 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.

Added DiffLines:

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Surprisingly, [[spoiler: Rodimus Prime]], a good guy example of this trope who never returned to "[[BigDamnHeroes save the day]]". After [[spoiler: Cybertron was destroyed, Rodimus Prime pretty much gave up trying to lead the Autobots, casually pass on his leadership to Fortress, and left for another place.]] This is largely due to the writer's intention to replace him with the Headmasters as main protagonists.

* KnightofCerebereus: Scorponok turns up the seriousness of the show in that he actually proves to a very effective leader, even if he doesn't fight initially at least.

** 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.

* VillainBall:
** [[spoiler: Galvatron chose a bad time to reveal to Sixshot, who happened to be one of his most competent and loyal Decepticons, that he intends to sacrifice him for his Grand Galvatron project. Upon this revelation, Sixshot sensibly switched his allegiance to that of Scorponok, hence leaving Galvatron to his doom at the hands of the Autobot Headmasters.]]
