* AmericaSavesTheDay: He uses this a lot--as noted below, he likes the US Military, and they like him because they always look good in his movies. One exception is ''Film/TheRock'' which was a major aversion--Sean Connery Saves The Day instead.

One exception is ''Film/TheRock'' which was a major aversion--Sean Connery Saves The Day instead. A much bigger aversion also occurs in ''13 Hours'' where American reinforcements are far too little and too late, which was true according to the real-life attack on Benghazi.

Bay got interested in action films when [[EstablishingCharacterMoment he set firecrackers on a train set, filmed it with his mom's camera, and got grounded]] - an approach which seems to have continued into many of his higher budget movies teven today. As a teenager he was a clerk for Lucasfilm in the early '80s, and worked on ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk''. [[ItWillNeverCatchOn He thought it would suck]], but ate his words when he saw the final product. That got him interested in directing.

* CreatorCameo: He's a NASA scientist in ''Armageddon'', has his car nearly {{Flashed Badge Hijack}}ed in ''Bad Boys II'', and is in the airplane carrying Optimus Prime in ''Revenge of the Fallen''.

Additionally, a ''really strange'' example of this is also in ''Transformers'': Blackout's tail number is the same as his private jet's (as revealed by him in the [[DVDCommentary Director's Commentary]])



* ExplosiveInstrumentation: Devastator, the most complex of the Transformers in the films, melting the computer being used to render him is probably as close as you'll get to this trope in real life.

According to some of the crew, Devastator had so many moving parts and was so complex and detailed to animate that his animation model ended up ''frying one of the animation computers' motherboards''!

* ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne: In regarding his use of [[ThreeDMovie 3-D]] in Transformers 3, he stated outright that people may hate his movies, bashing the characters, storyline and {{plot hole}}s, but you cannot fault the technical side of things. The special effects, camera work and sound design are all "technically precise."

** Say what you will about how much Bay loves explosions and chase scenes, but he makes them look ''good''; he's commented he does such stunts for real because it wouldn't look as good if he used CG or models, and for the same reason he doesn't like greenscreen work. In the first ''Transformers'' film, he accidentally launched a car into the third story of a building while filming Bumblebee's return to the battle in the tow truck, and he actually got a bus driving on the highway and blew it in two for the scene of Bonecrusher skating through it. When it came to making Transformers 3 a [[ThreeDMovie 3-D film]], he refused to work with anyone besides the best. In other words, the same team from ''Film/{{Avatar}}''.
