* PantheraAwesome: His ''Titans Return'' toy turns into a lion.



* ToylessToylineCharacter: Until 2007, when he got to be a [=BotCon=] exclusive. He is slated to receive his first general-retail toy as part of the ''Titans Return'' subprint of the ''Generations'' toyline in 2016.

* {{Flanderization}}: In the cartoons. Season 1 and 2 Optimus used casual language, wasn't entirely stoic, and hung out with his friends. Season 3 Optimus is an entirely stoic and serious sort, who never uses contractions.

* NotQuiteFlight: He can launch himself up into the sky and glide down on a cushion of compressed air.



* TheNthDoctor: After Creator/CaseyKasem quit the show in disgust over its EthnicScrappy portrayal of Arabs (Kasem was Lebanese-American), Teletraan I was upgraded to Teletraan II, apparently exactly the same except for the voice.

* CannonImmigrant: Slash started off as a character for ''Age of Extinction'' who didn't make it into the film proper despite much merchandising, before getting brought over to G1 in 2017.

* GracefulInTheirElement: In the water, he's a highly skilled combatant. On land, he's slow and not too agile.






* TechnicalPacifist: during the G1 cartoon

* AbsentMindedProfessor: He has a habit of losing interest in one project and starting another.




to:

* {{Hypocrite}}: Despite his own absent-minded tendancies, he's quick to jump on others for losing focus in their work.



* EmpathicWeapon: Two of them: Holepunch and Tracer

to:

* EmpathicWeapon: Two of them: Holepunch and TracerTracer.



* ThePollyanna: Possesses the kind of relentless optimism that deeply annoys anyone with even slightly realistic tendancies.




to:

* SmallNameBigEgo: Holepunch, a former BadBoss office manager who thinks he's more important than he actually is.



* GloryHound: Raindance sees his role in the war as being a vehicle to stardom. Unfortunately, Slamdance inherits this trait.




to:

* GeniusBruiser: A powerful and skilled naval tactician.




to:

* GentleGiant: A caring and peaceful Autobot.
* UnwantedAssistance: He has a bad habit of offering to talk to his fellow Autobots about their problems, even when they clearly don't want to. In the G1 comics, this almost earned him an Energon sword in the face, courtesy of Grimlock.



* BlackAndWhiteMorality: Sidetrack: He fights for the Autobots because they're the "good guys" and hates the Decepticons because they're the "bad guys". That's about the limit of his understanding of the reasons for their conflict.



* SmugSuper: Like most Autobots with flying vehicle modes, Sunrunner feels more than a little superior to his ground-borne comrades.



* TheChainsOfCommanding: Road Handler is often so busy watching over his troops that he neglects his own needs.




to:

* WeakButSkilled: Swindler is smart and capable, but very weak (even for a Micromaster).




to:

* DidntThinkThisThrough: Stakeout has a habit of rushing into things without thinking them over.
* TheMedic: Fixit is this for the team, and in the later comics, to the Autobots as a whole.
* ThrillSeeker: Red Hot. He loves charging into burning buildings to save others.




to:

* ThrillSeeker: Before the war, he was a stunt driver. As a saboteur, he likes to make as narrow an escape from an exploding building as he possibly can.




to:

* TheAce: A skilled warrior, a top scientist, and a rational problem solver.




to:

* FakeUltimateHero: Claims to be a great covert operative, but it's really his partner Glitch who does all the work.



* BloodKnight

to:

* BloodKnightBloodKnight: He never takes prisoners.

* TheBigGuy: Fitting for someone who turns into a truck and trailer, Magnus usually stands a great deal taller than everyone else. A major part of Operation: Volcano would have consisted of the Wreckers killing their targets, while Magnus held off every other 'con ''by himself''.



* CombatPragmatist: Dreamwave Magnus shot Grimlock in the head with a missile, while he was distracted.



* [[spoiler: LegacyImmortality]]: In the IDW series. Minimus Ambus is [[spoiler: the true name of the current bearer of Ultra Magnus' name and armor]].

to:

* [[spoiler: LegacyImmortality]]: HumbleHero: Ultra Magnus is a legitimately skilled fighter and leader, but he tends to downplay or even outright deny he's any good. Bearing in mind, this guy is good enough to get on with Grimlock.
* LegacyImmortality:

* ActualPacifist: He'd like to be, at least.



* ActualPacifist: He'd like to be, at least.



* LetsGetDangerous: Comic Fortress was able to fight, the problem was more Spike, who had little to no desire to actually get involved in the war. The second-to-last issue has Spike ''finally'' getting over this, followed by becoming one of the few to actually beat Galvatron in a fight (admittedly, Galvatron had gone completely nuts by that point, but hey).




to:

* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Gunrunner gets incredibly nervous if he's outside his Pretender shell for too long.



* DemotedToExtra: Unlike his wave mates who've gone onto have major roles (Nightbeat ascended to stardom ever since his marvel appearance, and Siren does get a decent amount of exposure and often acts as TheLancer to Nightbeat), Hosehead's just faded away into the crowd-filler scenes. Even in ''Cheap Shots'', where his fellow Headmasters get into the spotlight with their partners...Hosehead's been dead since the start, so even his own head, Lug, got more character focus.

* DroppedABridgeOnHim: He's seen fighting Unicron in the comics. The opening of the next issue shows that at some point during the fight, he got killed. During ''Regeneration One'', he's alive again, just long enough to get stabbed through the back by the Dark Matrix. ''Jeez''.



* RoboFamily: In the commercial that introduces him, he's said to be Sixshot's son.

world. He is at least able to keep one foot in reality, modifying any developments to fit with his daydreams.
* {{Retcon}}: Sky High's personality got a little overhaul in Dreamwave's profile books. His original bio described him purely as DumbMuscle, but gave him the above motto and a high intelligence rating. So in ''More Than Meet The Eye'', he was re-written as a daydreamer who just comes across as a idiot.

* TheAce: Described as such by his TF Universe profile. He's a genius strategist, capable of analysing situations on the fly, and has no known weakness.
* {{Determinator}}: The Armornecking Incident had Getaway battered, broken and absent a working gun. He still managed to get his troops to safety.



* OffWithHisHead: ''Titans Return'' has him as Titan Master.




to:

* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: His default weapon is a plasma shotgun.
