* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: When he loses his ability to transform thanks to MECH taking his T-Cog, Starscream becomes little more than a bum scavenging for energon scraps and selling information to Autobots in exchange for medical treatment. This ends as of "Triangulation" [[spoiler: where, throughout the remainder of Season 2, he gains the Apex Armor, loses it but acquires Red Energon which he uses to retrieve ''all four Omega Keys'', which he uses as bargaining chips to return to the Decepticons.]]

* AdaptationalHeroism: Not during the show, of course, but his backstory is that he was once a miner/gladiator fighting for the rights of lower-ranking Cybertronians, as opposed to simply being a GenericDoomsdayVillain like other incarnations. [[spoiler:He is also the only Megatron in the franchise to pull a HeelFaceTurn so far.]]

* OneHandedZweihander: Megs gets a lesson in his second sword duel with Optimus on [[Deconstruction why this trope is generally]] [[RealityEnsues a ''bad'' idea]]. The first sword-clash unbalances Megatron, while Optimus, with a two-handed grip, recovers faster and quickly slices Megatron's sword arm off.

The leader of the Decepticons, he was originally a miner named D-16 who competed in the Gladiatorial Arena in Kaon. Proving popular with the crowd, he took the legendary name "Megatronus" and later "Megatron", then started gathering followers as he talked about eliminating the caste system that prevented lower level individuals such as himself from becoming anything more than a miner. This got the attention of Iacon data clerk Orion Pax, who supported his cause and gave him the opportunity to address the Cybertronian High Council. But his darker ambitions got the better of him, and when Orion was named Prime over him, Megatron vowed to take control of Cybertron itself, rendering the world uninhabitable in the process.

* CameBackStrong: [[spoiler:Being upgraded makes him vastly more powerful, to the point that no one, not even ''Predaking'', can defeat him. His jet mode has ftl capability, his robot form is bigger and spikier, and he can form weapons made of pure dark energy. Fortunately for everyone, being enslaved by Unicron soured him on the idea of oppressing anyone else, and it's not clear if he keeps these powers once Unicron is sealed away.]]

* EveryoneHasStandards: Knockout displays anger and disgust [[spoiler:when he sees Breakdown revived by Silas, using his body to the point of wanting to avenge his partner.]] He also seems to be a bit taken aback by Megatron's treatment of Starscream.

* ParanoiaFuel: In-universe for both the Decepticons and the Autobots. For the Decepticons, his UndyingLoyalty to Megatron and his job as communications chief means that he's always watching. No matter what you do, he's always there. If you have a secret, he ''will'' find out. Any insubordination ''will'' be snuffed out. And for the Autobots, just ''one'' slip up could let Soundave pinpoint the location of their base. Especially demonstrated in "Darkmount, NV" where he managed to track down Jack when he sent a text to June.

* RetiredBadass: This silent and unassuming bot was once a gladiator who almost ''killed'' Megatron in the arenas of Kaon. Yes, the same Megatron who can go toe-to-toe with ''Optimus Prime.'' Let that sink in for a moment. And as his fights (read: [[CurbStompBattle Curb Stomp Battles]] see above.) throughout the series are any indication, he hasn't lost his touch.

* UndyingLoyalty: ''The'' most stalwart and loyal member of Megatron's ranks, bar none. Especially evident in "Minus One" where despite being captured and interrogated by the Autobots, he chooses to crash his drives rather than divulge information.
