** Finally subverted as of 2014 with the ''Generations'' line, which includes a very show-accurate toy of her from G1. Chromia also had an accurate toy released around this time. The corresponding Japanese line, ''Legends'', took it a step further and gave Arcee cartoon-accurate colors.

** Partially Subverted in 2013 with the blind-bagged Kre-O toy. Finally subverted as of 2014 with the ''Generations'' line, which includes a very show-accurate toy of her from G1.G1. Unfortunately She and Chromia were tail enders of the Thrilling 30 Line, and faced poor distribution as a result. Chromia also had an accurate toy released around this time. The corresponding Japanese line, ''Legends'', took it a step further and gave Arcee cartoon-accurate colors.

* NotInTheFace: "I just had it chromed!"

* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness

to:

* SesquipedalianLoquaciousnessSesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Known to talk in this manner, which the other Autobots find exasperating.



* DemotedToExtra: Like many Autobots in the Marvel comics, he was pushed to the wayside after getting a few issues in the limelight, relegated to mere background appearances.



* FlyingCar

to:

* FlyingCarTheFightingNarcissist: Not quite as bad as Sunstreaker, but he's definitely this.
* FlyingCar: His alt mode can sprout a pair of wings.
* SmokeOut: He has a "black light" gun that can blind his enemies.



* TheBigGuy: Often fills this role for his fellow Autobots. In some instances, he's as tall (and nearly as powerful) as a Combiner.



* A FriendlyEnemy to Octane

to:

* A FriendlyEnemy FriendlyEnemy: to Octane



* LoveableRogue

to:

* LoveableRogueLoveableRogue: One of the more light-hearted Autobots, prone to cracking wise.

to:

* AdventurerArchaeologist: He sort of sees himself as one. He's not, but he ''really'' wants to be.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: He always wanted to be part of an important, dramatic story. When he finally was part of said story, he ended up with a hole blown clear through his chest by Thunderwing using a corrupted artifact of Cybertron's own god. [[CaptainObvious This killed him dead and probably hurt a lot]].
* HotBlooded: Widely regarded as a hothead, and for good reason. Unlike most examples of the trope, he's also very interested in making sure the job is done right.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: He simply wants to be the hero of a story; he finds his usual excavation operations dull and lacking in interesting plots.



* BadassLongcoat: On occasion, he has been seen wearing one.

to:

* BadassLongcoat: On occasion, he has been seen wearing one. Yes, even over those shoulders.



* DrillTank: One of his alternate modes.



* DrivesLikeCrazy

to:

* DrivesLikeCrazyTheDitz: ''Severely''. Slapdash is kind of a dunce; he forgets things like missions, orders, his gun, ''his engine,'' or even having fuel. Not because he's an amnesiac, but because he's disorganized and chronically bad at paying attention.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: His inability to pay attention extends to his driving, making him a road hazard at 600 mph.
* [[ForgetsToEat Forgets To Refuel]]: Not for {{Workaholic}} reasons or such, but because he's just generally disorganized and ends up neglecting his own well-being out of incompetence rather than temperament.
* KindheartedSimpleton: Fortunately for him, he's really pleasant to have around, so the Autobots are willing to suffer his bumbling.

* BigGood
* [[FiremenAreHot Fire Engines Are Hot]]

to:

* BigGood
BigGood: Of the 1985-vintage "Season Two" Autobots, being one of the Autobots best-suited to combat among the Season Two crew thanks to his strength, but also the most selfless and heroic.
* BoisterousBruiser: Very big, very loud, and fun to have around, but also an extremely competent fighter--you don't get to be a Wrecker without some serious ass-kicking credentials, after all.
* [[FiremenAreHot Fire Engines Are Hot]]Hot]]: [[http://toys.tfw2005.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/12/2008/10/inferno1_1223717877.gif Often drawn with the robotic equivalent]] of a HeroicBuild, giving him a powerful appearance.




to:

* HotBlooded: No subtlety, oozes intensity in everything he does. The guy throws himself into burning buildings simply because stopping fires and rescuing people is the right thing to do, personal safety be damned. This goes double for combat, where he fights Decepticons with everything he has, again, because it's the right thing to do. Also a neat pun, what with him turning into a fire engine.
* PlayingWithFire: For a short time in ''Regeneration One'', he was unable to control his body temperature thanks to Nucleon corruption and was igniting by proximity alone, meaning that there was a period of time where both fire trucks in the setting ''could set other people on fire''.
* RedOniBlueOni: The boisterous Red Oni to Red Alert's reserved Blue Oni--at least when Red Alert's not having one a moment. When Red Alert ''is'' having one of his excessively paranoid spells, they switch positions: now Inferno is the composed, reasonable, and logical one, whereas Red Alert becomes loud, defiant, and a little bit off-kilter.
