* AdaptationalBadass: Zig-Zagged; he's a rather weak combatant, especially compared to his ''G1'' and ''Animated'' counterparts, but in terms of scheming he's by far one of the most competent versions of Starscream.

×× Starscream may have no sense of honor, but it appears he's not without a sense of ''gratitude'', as shown when he repays Arcee's mercy towards him in Season 1 by sparing her life when he could have killed her instead. More details in VillainousVirtues below.

** Taken even further in Season 3: the Decepticons welcome to their ranks Shockwave, one of Megatron's most skilled underlings and an esteemed (and feared) Decepticon scientist; meanwhile, the Autobots' forces are similarly bolstered by the arrival of Ultra Magnus, one of Optimus' key lieutenants from the War and the renowned leader of the Wreckers.
*** Shockwave has an ArmCannon in place of his usual arm while [[spoiler:Ultra Magnus would later get a claw as a replacement for his hand. It becomes more amusing considering it was Grimlock and Predaking, both Shockwave's creations, that destroyed their respective limbs.]]

* AmbiguousEnding: [[spoiler:It's left unknown if he had been killed by the Predacons. The Robot in Disguise tie-in comic left his fate ambiguous.]]
** [[spoiler:He is confirmed to be alive according to the upcoming Robot in Disguise season 3.]]



* [[spoiler:AssholeVictim: Possibly becomes this at the hands of Predaking, Darksteel, and Skylynx.]]



* CombatPragmatist: When Arcee tries to get him to agree to a fair fight, he refuses and begs for mercy... so she'll get close enough for him to cause her serious wounds before actually fighting.
** Also, he kills two Vehicon guards when sneaking aboard the ''Nemesis'' by distracting them with small talk, then shooting one and impaling the other.

* DangerousDeserter: Since the events in "Partners".
** Deconstructed over the series. Starscream may have been in the right when quitting both sides and going rogue, but it turned out to be a horrible decision for him. Going rogue meant that he had no way to tracking Energon and had to scavenge what he could from stripped out mines merely to survive, and he was always outnumbered in battle along with that he had to do everything he needed done on his own. Despite all this, though, he was still dangerous once he got things going for him.

* DragonAscendant: He assumes command of the Decepticon army after Megatron's [[NeverFoundTheBody "death"]] by [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat exploding space bridge]].
** And gets to maintain ascendancy when Megatron is recovered and has to be placed in stasis due to his injuries... [[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown some of which Starscream caused]].

* EasilyForgiven: In a contrast to Generation One Starscream (who was never really punished for his blatant insubordination) and Animated Starscream (who Megatron actively tried to kill once his treachery was found), this Starscream is [[AvertedTrope neither easily forgiven]] nor are his skills and talents ignored by Megatron as an asset. After operating as a third party against both Decepticons and Autobots, he is only accepted back in their ranks as part of a greater plan by Megatron to curtail the infighting by making it clear any hint of insubordination would no longer be tolerated.

* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He comes to ''genuinely'' care for Knock Out as a friend and sees [[spoiler: Megatron]] as a kind of father figure when the latter [[spoiler: gives him the forgiveness that he frankly is undeserving of,]] enough so to be torn by genuine grief and rage when [[spoiler: Bumblebee kills him.]]

* EvenEvilHasStandards: In "Darkness Rising, part 2", Starscream is horrified by Megatron's use of Dark Energon. By the time of "Shadowzone", [[SubvertedTrope however]], he has gotten past this, instead coveting such power for himself.

* HypocriticalHumor: When Bulkhead, who can't fight back due to holding a collapsing cave ceiling up, tells him he's not going to beg for mercy, Starscream nervously agrees that begging ''would'' be rather pathetic. Hours earlier, Starscream was begging for his life with Megatron's cannon to his head.

* SpannerInTheWorks: Unknowingly, to Megatron's attempts to deceive Orion Pax. Megatron told Orion that Starscream is dead. When Starscream snuck aboard the ''Nemesis'' and came across Orion, he referred to him as Optimus Prime. Needless to say, a dead bot calling you by another name was the first dent in Megatron's deception and if not for his sudden appearance and subsequently passing information to the Autobots about the Space Bridge, Optimus would likely have remained Orion Pax.
