* Also in "The Agenda", the Maximals are holed up in the ''Axalon'', their shields being pummeled by a vastly superior Predacon warship and Rampage. Rattrap finally gets sick of waiting, and everyone's favorite [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot spy/demolitions expert/gunner/]]JerkWithAHeartOfGold then proceeds to drive off a convenient ramp made of debris, out of the ship and into the air. He lands on the enemy ship and tries to burn his way in with a futuristic welding torch...and when THAT fails, he transforms into a "stainless steel rat" and CHEWS his way through, just as Tarantulas is arming the ship's ludicrously oversized missile of death. He greets Tarantulas with "a pair of belly bombs with your name right on them...eat 'em and weep!" Tarantulas FREAKS OUT as he is blown up (he got better), and the 4+ million-year-old Decepticon warrior Ravage defiantly meets his end as he is caught in the blast. (He didn't get better...[[AllThereInTheManual or did he?]].) THEN, as the ship plummets out of control, Rattrap rides the [[FreudWasRight giant missile]] a la [[DrStrangelove Slim Pickins]], and the ship stops it crashing ''just'' before it crushes Rampage. The AxCrazy NighInvulnerable Predacon proceeds to [[EvilLaugh laugh]]...until he realizes the missile is still armed, and it launches mere seconds later, hitting him at point-blank range. Rattrap rides out the giant explosion joyously until he is caught in Rhinox's arms, and the eternal DeadpanSnarker has to end this CMOA with...

* "Code Of Hero" is often regarded as not only a highlight of the series, but also one of the crowning achievements of the ''Transformers'' franchise overall—and it all rests on Dinobot's shoulders. While it's better to watch the episode for yourself, in short, Dinobot aims to mitigate his actions in "Maximal No More" and, well...let's just say his CharacterDevelopment and {{Badass}} qualities hit maximum levels as a result:

** Dinobot 2 from the series finale:finale. [[spoiler:Finally gaining some sense of his former self (which probably came when the half-spark embedded in Ramgage went with him), when Megatron orders him to arm the ''Nemesis'' main cannon on the ''Ark'', Dinobot slips a transmission to the Maximals, giving them at least a chance to turn the tables...which Rhinox eventually does.]]

* With action television shows that exist mainly to sell toys, new characters, representing new products on the shelves, beat the old characters/toys without much effort. "Proving Grounds" [[AvertedTrope averts this]] for a good portion of the episode, with Blackarachnia, [[spoiler: still in her original form]], outwitting and outfighting Dinobot II (who first appeared two episodes prior) at every turn. That's not to say Dinobot II doesn't hold his own well, but it is a good example of how {{Beast Wars}} [[DownplayedTrope downplays]] [[MerchandiseDriven its toy-oriented aspects.]]

''[[TransformersGenerationOne Prime]]'', not Prim''al'', '''THE''' Optimus Prime! The epic speech he gives while doing it is just the icing on the cake.]]

** You forgot to mention he took on SIX Predacons and came out victorious. Yes, Dinobot faced all six Predacons (seven, counting a short battle with Tarantulas earlier), and WON. Even if he DID die, that's still pretty darn impressive for ONE bot.
