* {{Defictionalisation}}: Bumblebee was designed to resemble muscle cars like the Chevy Camero, but described as the Urbana 500 in a 2012 episode. In what may be the most awesome defictionalisation ever, in ''2016'' Fiat started selling the ''actual'' Urbana 500L for $23,000, a sleek little puppy for the common man with a distinct resemblance to G1 Bumblebee in his modernised form. And just for the record, yes, it comes in yellow.
** It takes 3-5 years to develop and design a car. So either somebody at Hasbro heard that Fiat was going to call a car the Urbana 500, or somebody at Fiat was watching that episode and felt inspired - although the name and colour are rarely big issues when designing a car.

Interesting, since he has killed Decepticons before, though it seems the intent behind his reaction was that he essentially murdered someone in cold blood out of a sense of personal vengeance, as opposed to an enemy in the heat of battle.

* JerkassHasAPoint: Ratchet may not be the friendliest Autobot, but his spark is in the right place when it comes to fighting the Decepticons. His primary concern is ensuring an Autobot victory for Cybertron, and he wants Optimus to remember that. So when he rails on about [[spoiler:Cybertron's one chance at being restored destroyed, you can't deny he's right]]. The Autobots have been fighting for centuries and a lot on Earth's behalf, for very little in return. It should be expected that they deserve something in return.

** In [[Recap/TransformersPrimeS1E13SickMind "Sick Mind"]], he gets Megatron to show him the cure for Cybonic Plague that had infected Optimus by playing on the Decepticon leader's desire to kill Prime himself.
** Then in [[Recap/TransformersPrimeS1E20Partners "Partners"]], he tricks Airacnid into thinking he was immobilized and then sneak up on her while she had her back on him.
** In [[Recap/TransformersPrimeTVMBeastHuntersPredaconsRising "Predacons Rising"]], he stops Predaking from attacking by pretending a random predacon bone to be the Immobilizer before attempting a truce.[[note]]It doesn't work at first, but the Predacons do come around to help fighting Unicron at the end.[[/note]] From the same movie, this time he confuses Starscream by lying that the Immobilizer in the latter's hands isn't the real deal.
