* ShapeshifterWeapon: Both played straight and averted. Bumblebee and Ironhide still have their arm cannons, and Sideswipe still has his arm blades, but almost every other Transformer now uses guns that are separate pieces of equipment. Even Optimus' swords are now part of the arsenal in his trailer instead of being tucked away in his forearms, and Ironhide uses guns aside from his standard cannons.

* ShapeshifterWeapon: Both played straight and averted. Bumblebee and Ironhide still have Prior movies showed the robot weaponry forming from their body, and maintains that with things like Bumblebee's gun, Sideswipes arm blades and Ironhide's cannons, and Sideswipe still has his arm blades, but almost every other Transformer now uses guns this film introduces external weapons that are separate pieces the characters pick up and use rather than transforming from their body. There is a greater emphasis on these hand held weapons instead of equipment. Even integrated weapons. Optimus' swords are now part of the arsenal in travels with his trailer instead of being tucked away in that transforms into a WallOfWeapons platform, and a sharp eye will notice that his forearms, and Ironhide uses guns aside from his standard cannons.previous BladeBelowTheShoulder became handheld as well.

** During the film's third act, Shockwave attacks Optimus with the latter in vehicle-mode, knocking off his trailer in the process. The original G1 series notoriously had Optimus' trailer suddenly disappear whenever he turned into a robot, and spontaneously reappear out of nowhere when he turned back.

* GirlsNeedRoleModels:
** Charlotte Mearing is a professional, intelligent ReasonableAuthorityFigure who is ''not'' portrayed as a standard hot woman. No one noticed.
** Carly [[spoiler:saves the day by using her ''intelligence'' to talk Megatron into attacking Sentinel, after spending most of the climax as a DamselInDistress.]] No one noticed.

* BritishAccents:
** The Wreckers sport Scottish accents. Even though they look like rednecks and turn into UsefulNotes/{{NASCAR}} stock cars.
** Huntington-Whitley sports her natural English accent.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy:
** The Decepticons have clearly learned their lesson from the last film; rather than fall to Earth as protoforms, causing a worldwide scene, they instead opt to [[spoiler:travel to Earth from the moon via Sentinel's Space Bridge, cause some damage, and then scan alternate forms before driving away into the night]].
** Sentinel seems to have read on Optimus's combat style [[spoiler:since he carried a shield into battle.]] Although it's probably justified, given his mentor status to Optimus, he probably taught Optimus how to fight.
