* AntiVillian: Cancer clearly has the most sympathetic backstory, is outright disgusted at some of the more serious schemes, and when Devil Z goes completely off the rails, he turns on the Decepticons.

* AllThereInTheManual: A lot of plot points aren't explained during the show's run.
** Just what the heck the deal is with Devil Z. A clip show explained he was an evil alien. Decades later, Ask Vector Prime said [[spoiler:He was the child of a Light God, partner and sibling to the original Godmaster, who became corrupted on entering Earth's atmosphere. And also a space alien, since that reality had become more strange after Zarak blew up Cybertron.]]
** As to why [=BlackZarak=] has gone from the BigBad to a slightly tougher-than-average goon for Devil Z... he's brainwashed.
** [=BlackZarak=] gets his head knocked off by Ginrai in their tussle on the moon, but it doesn't slow him down. This goes ''completely'' unexplained in the show, but supplementary materials revealed the true Zarak is actually wired into the body's torso.



* CombiningMecha: The dread King Poseidon. However, since he's made to the Seacons, he's not much of a threat.



* HeelFaceDoorSlam: After Cancer talks Wilder and Bullhorn into siding with the Autobots, they rush to their transtectors, ready to join the fight, and ZAP! Devil Z separates them and brings the mecha to life on their own.



* HoistedByHisOwnPetard: In the episode "Life? Death? A Desperate Lightfoot!", Hydra threatens to cut his arms off if he dosent join them. During the battle, Lightfoot punches Buster's arm clean off.

* InsaneTrollLogic: Devil Z severely beats Hydra and Buster for failure. Afterwards, Hydra declares they deserved it for being "weak".

* MadeOfExplodium: The Seacons. Later, the Sparkdashers join them.


Added DiffLines:

* MistreatmentInducedBetrayal:
** Clouder initially decides to join the Decepticons, because he thinks they're cooler. Then they leave him to die in the exploding Autobot base.
** Mega and Giga become increasingly disgruntled by Devil Z's crappy treatment of his troops, until they turn on him. Sadly, RedemptionEqualsDeath.

* FrontLineGeneral: Ginrai when he becomes Autobot leader, and Overlord.



* KnightofCerebus: Devil Z significantly ups the darkness in the series. When he takes over in the final arc, there is absolutely no comedy whatsoever.



* ThisIsUnforgivable

to:

* ThisIsUnforgivableThisIsUnforgivable: Most of the things the Decepticons do is usually called this by the Autobots, as per the course, but what really crosses this is when Devil Z starts killing his own minions.


Added DiffLines:

* WhamEpisode: Several of them
** "Super Warriors- The Godmaster Brothers" brings in Hydra and Buster, which suddenly not only puts the Autobots in serious trouble, but changes the entire series.
** " Eliminate the Godmaster Ginrai" brings in Devil Z, which completely changes the tone of the series.

* MysteriousPast: Devil Z spends most of the series looking like a pulsating energy ball. Then, when he fuses with Blackzarak, he states he is revealing his true form. We get a brief glimpse of some creepy looking foetus, and that's it. A later clip show hurriedly explained he was an energy being from space.

We get a brief glimpse of some creepy looking foetus, and that's it. A later clip show hurriedly explained he was an energy being from space. And as further revealed by [[WordOfGod Ask Vector Prime]], Devil Z is [[spoiler: the Godmessenger from the origins of the Godmasters he described. Godmessenger (Devil Z) and Godmaster, were originally children of a Light God, but when they entered Earth's atmosphere, Godmaster got [[PiecesOfGod shattered into the 8 Godmasters]], and [[FallenAngel Godmessenger got corrupted into Devil Z]].]]

* MetaphoricallyTrue: a villainous example [[spoiler: as revealed by [[WordOfGod Ask Vector Prime]], the Godmasters being parts of a divine being, the complete Godmaster, and Godmessenger being it's sibling, as told by Devil Z, are true, with the exception of the fact Godmaster wasn't a Decepticon God he/she and it's sibling Godmessenger Devil Z, are children of a Light God member of Primus' pantheon of light, and kin to Primus and Unicron. It's more complicated though, as the origin of them eight Transtectors from the G Nebula stolen by Devil Z is also true, due to a Cosmic Paradox that created a UsefulNotes/SchrodingersCat situation.]]

In terms of {{continuity}}, ''Masterforce'' is canonically set after ''[[TransformersHeadmasters Headmasters]]''; however, while ''Headmasters'' was clearly set TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture, ''Masterforce'' used contemporary technology and fashions. However, aside from a few brief instances, ''Masterforce'' is pretty much self-contained, and so knowledge of ''Headmasters'' is (fortunately) not necessary to follow or understand it.

The cartoon received the same hilariously bad dub treatment as ''TransformersHeadmasters''. The dub was first broadcast in Malaysia on RTM-1 in 1988, and later in Singapore on [=StarTV=]. {{DVD}}s containing both the dub and subtitled Japanese episodes were released in the UK in 2006 (sub only) and Australia in 2008; both were also shown in the UK on Anime Central in 2007.

The Pretenders were rather simple toys with basic transformations and forgettable altmodes, which came with human- or demon-shaped posable outer shells. The Headmaster Junior toys were the same as the regular Headmaster toys - a large robot whose head transforms into a smaller robot and whose body becomes a vehicle or animal. The Godmasters also had two components; one was a small human in PoweredArmor that transforms into an engine which plugs into a slot in the larger vehicle. The vehicle cannot transform into robot mode unless the engine is plugged in.

Millennia ago, a group of Transformers gained the ability to disguise themselves as organic beings. Calling themselves Pretenders, they came to live on Earth, where the Autobots disguised themselves as humans. The Decepticons disguised themselves as demons and terrorised humanity until they were sealed away in the Egyptian pyramids, {{Atlantis}}, and the Nazca Lines of Peru. Much later, the Decepticon Pretenders reawaken and, led by the mysterious Devil Z, begin an assault on humanity.

* BroadStrokes[=/=]ContinuitySnarl: This series has the biggest issues of canon in the history of ''Transformers G1'' as a whole. In one episode, you have 2 cops who could identify the Transformers (one for some apparent reason knows what a Pretender is). In another, ''THE ENTIRE HUMAN RACE'' had forgoten who and ''what'' Decepticons are. It would've been justified as a new generation who has never heard of them before, but this is downright stupid.

* BroadStrokes[=/=]ContinuitySnarl: This series ''Masterforce'' is both a clean break from and a continuation of ''Headmasters'' -- something that tends to frustrate ''Transformers'' fans. The creators wanted to try something new with this series, and it has a dramatically different feel compared to any ''Transformers'' media that precedes it. But it also canonically follows ''Headmasters'', which makes viewers wonder things like "if this show is set post-2020, why is its setting indistinguishable from the biggest issues of canon in late 1980s?" or "considering that the history of ''Transformers G1'' as Autobots previously had a whole. In one episode, you have 2 cops who could identify the public presence on Earth, why don't humans recognize Transformers (one for some apparent reason knows what a Pretender is). In another, ''THE ENTIRE HUMAN RACE'' had forgoten who and ''what'' Decepticons are. It would've been justified as a new generation who has never heard of them before, but this is downright stupid.anymore?" Don't expect the show to address these questions.

In "God Ginrai - Showdown at the Decepticon's Base", he also explains that he wanted to join them to become stronger. In paraelles to his action at the start of the series where he, alongside Bullhorn and Wilder, cause mayhem.
