* SpottingTheThread: When trying to deny any knowledge of Optimus to Cemetery Wind, Cade refers to Optimus as "he". Attinger, listening through the drones, realizes that Cade must have spoken to Optimus if he's using gendered pronouns to refer to him.

Added DiffLines:

** It is never explained what happened with Cemetery Wind after the whole movie. Both their leader and co leader [[LaserGuidedKarma got their just deserts]] but the rest of the RedShirtArmy seems to've gotten off scot-free for the most part.

** Bumblebee also briefly succumbs to this once [[spoiler:he and the other humans infiltrate the KSI lab]] where Stinger is on display. After watching an ad on one of the TV screens claiming that Stinger is "just like Bumblebee, but better", Bumblebee does an [[Creator/SamuelLJackson "oh hell no!"]] and proceeds to smash the man-made robot. As Joyce comes back to berate the "grease monkeys" for making too much noise, we see 'Bee transformed back [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments playing a sample of]] [[Music/MCHammer "U Can't Touch This"]].

** Tessa has a moment of this in the wake of [[spoiler:Lucas's death]], essentially blaming her father helping Optimus as the cause of everything, even going so far as to imply they ''should'' have turned him in and none of their misery would have happened. It's likely that she was just speaking from emotion and not thinking things through clearly enough, as it was made perfectly clear that Cemetery Wind would have killed them all anyway, especially since they had spoken with Optimus and knew who he was, breaking the cover story they had. Still it is somewhat remiss of her to say this, considering Optimus ''saved their lives'', breaking cover the moment Savoy gave the order to ''shoot her''. Also, technically [[spoiler: the entire thing was actually Lucas's fault anyway, since he called in Optimus's location. Even when Kade said the government doesn't just give away free money, [[HateToSayIToldYouSo he should have listened]] ]].

* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: The interstellar jet-boots Optimus uses to fly away and search for [[spoiler:the Quintessons]] in the end would have come in handy earlier. Some fans have noticed that the sword Optimus picks up during the film caused a brief change in the color of his arm. During the final battle, you could briefly see Optimus using the jet boosters [[https://scontent-b-iad.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xfp1/t31.0-8/10482256_343913162422632_8892448368639597121_o.jpg when leaping off Grimlock]] so it is likely that the sword installed a few things.

** Optimus's new design is very knightly as well. The toyline even gives Optimus a [[EnvironmentSpecificActionFigure variation]] '''called''' "Silver Knight".

** Optimus's new design is very knightly as well. When he activates the Dinobots, he even [[KingArthur pulls a sword out of a rock-like object]], while activating some kind of wristguard that makes his hands and arms look like gauntlets. The toyline even gives Optimus a [[EnvironmentSpecificActionFigure variation]] '''called''' "Silver Knight".

* GenericDoomsdayVillain: [[spoiler:Galvatron. Compared to Lockdown, he doesn't have as much characterization and just wants to use the Seed to recreate an army to destroy humanity.]]

* GenericDoomsdayVillain: [[spoiler:Galvatron. Compared to Lockdown, he doesn't have as much characterization and just wants to use the Seed to recreate an army to destroy humanity. Justified in that he's really a rebuilt Megatron, whose character and motivations have already been established in the previous films.]]
