* CasualDangerDialogue: Despite engaging in it himself on occasion, he proclaimed to Wheeljack during their fight that mid-battle banter was nothing but a sign of weakness. Wheeljack mocked him by saying that perhaps that was only true for primitives who couldn't multitask. Hardshell [[BerserkButton responded]] by unleashing a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown on him.


Added DiffLines:

* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: After Wheeljack calls him a [[BerserkButton primitive]], Hardshell breaks the deadlock they were in before utterly thrashing the Wrecker with his bare fists, unleashing blows that caused visible [[KungFuSonicBoom shockwaves]]. If [[spoiler:Miko]] hadn't stepped in, he would have added another Wrecker to his kill list.

* ItsAllAboutMe: One of the most common personality traits shared by all Decepticons to one degree or another is their penchant for caring only about themselves and their own wants and desires.

** 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.

** TheDarkChick: Airachnid during her time under Megatron's command, as she was always far more interested in her own agenda than Megatron's.

** TheDarkChick: Airachnid during her time under Megatron's command, as she was always far more interested in her own agenda than Megatron's. Knock Out initially counted before her appearance and his own promotion to EvilGenius.
** SixthRanger: Airachnid starts off like this, later replaced by Shockwave.

* DecompositeCharacter: During his brief tenure as leader of the Decepticons, he has all the traits of G1 Megatron that TFP Megatron didn't inherit: [[DidntThinkThisThrough short-sighted plans]], [[GeneralFailure day-to-day plans that are prone to fail]] and [[SmallNameBigEgo trouble keeping his soldiers in line]]. He also has the screechy voice and the gray-red-black color scheme, although that's not much of a departure from G1 Starscream, either.

Knock Out once stated that it's tough to get replacement parts for his alt mode. He ''strongly'' resembles an Aston Martin One-77, but with a red paint-job. It may only be boring old trivia, but it's also one of the most exclusive cars in the ''world,'' with only 77 unique examples in existence and an initial asking price of GB£1,150,000.



* CoolCar: In fact, he picked his vehicle mode entirely based on its aesthetics - although it's still a powerful model.

* SissyVillain: Downplayed- he's quite campy and lacks the bulk of Breakdown or Megatron, but he's not nearly as effeminate looking or acting as Starscream.

* ButtMonkey: As typical luck for the typical Starscream, he doesn't have a lot going for him in the luck department. Most of his activities in any field often result in either humiliation or agony, or agonizing humiliation. He also has little respect amoung the cast members because of his sycophantic and cowardly nature. This exchange with Miko sums it up quite well:

* InsectQueen: Even though she's a spider. She can control Insecticons telepathically. [[StoryBreakerPower All of them at once]] if they're within range (which presumably means just being on the same planet). It takes her getting herself locked in stasis by coincidence or teleported to a distant corner of space for the control to be [[KeystoneArmy broken]].

* {{Badass}}: One of the [[BroadStrokes very few things]] that ''was'' inherited from ''[[VideoGame/TransformersWarForCybertron War For Cybertron]]''... with considerable interest, at that. By the second season, it's pretty clear that he's one of the most dangerous Cybertronians alive.
** BadassBaritone: Courtesy of VocalEvolution.
** BadassInCharge: Of the 'Cons.
** BadassTransplant: Steals the right arm of a dead Prime and has Knock Out transplant it on him, thus allowing him to use Forge of Solus Prime to create the Dark Star Saber. By the end of Season 2, he loses it.

* {{Badass}}: He has his moments.



* {{Badass}}: Soundwave is second to Megatron in terms of Decepticons feared by everyone else, for good reason. He never loses a battle in the series, always completes his missions, and proves himself a formidable enemy for both the Autobots and any Decepticons who are thinking of betraying their leader. [[spoiler: Trapping him in the Shadowzone proves to be the only way for anyone to defeat him, as none of the other Autobots could take him on in a fight and win.]]
** AdaptationalBadass: Quite possibly the most dangerous and frightening incarnation of Soundwave so far.

** 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 below.) throughout the series are any indication, he hasn't lost his touch.



* {{Chessmaster Sidekick}}: Soundwave not only [[SinisterSurveillance keeps an eye on]] ''[[ParanoiaFuel everything]]'', he's also feared by almost everyone (with Airachnid learning [[CurbStompBattle exactly]]'' [[CurbStompBattle why]]'' [[CurbStompBattle you shouldn't pick a fight with him]]), to the point where [[TheStarscream Starscream]] kept trying to tiptoe around him/gain his approval whilst attempting to usurp Megatron. Also, according to one of the background novels, Soundwave ''almost'' bested Megatron in gladiatorial combat. '''''[[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking Mega]][[{{Badass}} tron.]]'''''

* TheDreaded: By the other Decepticons, funnily enough, and [[ParanoiaFuel for]] [[CurbStompBattle good]] [[{{Badass}} reason]]. His role as Communications Chief and his UndyingLoyalty to Megatron means that no one can even ''think'' about overthrowing Megatron while he's around. And as Airachnid learns the hard way, only a fool with a death wish would even dream of fighting him.

* {{Badass}}: It outflew Agent Fowler, and gave Wheeljack a run for his money. Especially notable as the two of them outflew and killed numerous Vehicons and Insecticons in "Darkest Hour." And then it temporarily took Optimus out of the fight in "Project Predacon."
** BadassInDistress: For a good chunk of "Triage."

* {{Badass}}: One of the few non-Megatron 'Cons capable of going up against Optimus and holding their own.



* {{Badass}}: He's able to fight Bulkhead one-on-one and not be killed when the big guy is going at full power. And he survived being exposed to Tox-En and tossed into a volcano.
** Even more amazing, he actually defeated ''[[OneManArmy Wheeljack]]'' in a fight. If not for [[spoiler:Miko]], he would have killed him.
