* '''[[ThirdPersonPerson Grimlock]]''' is ([[Anime/TransformersRobotsInDisguise almost]]) always the leader of the Autobot subgroup known as the Dinobots, and will tend to be unwilling to work with Prime and the other Autobots unless needed (again, ''almost'' always). Grimlock has appeared in virtually ''every'' version of the Transformers universe in some form or another; usually, a Grimlock transforms into a ''{{Tyrannosaurus rex}}'' for an alternate mode. However, in time he has gained other modes; a [[Anime/TransformersRobotsInDisguise backhoe]], a ''[[WesternAnimation/{{BeastWars}} Velociraptor]]'', and even a Ford Mustang in the ''Alternators'' toyline! In the Unicron Trilogy (well, the ''toys'', anyways), Grimlock could combine with Swoop to form Mega-Dinobot, though neither were in the show, and the toys weren't even meant for the Energon toyline, but for Universe; so the canonical status of them in the trilogy is debatable. He also almost always to have a problem with speaking in the first person, though this and his intelligence varies on continuity; sometimes, he's decently smart , and sometimes he's quite dumb.

** Many fans are discontent with [[Anime/TransformersArmada the]] [[Anime/TransformersEnergon Unicron]] [[TransformersCybertron Trilogy]], and try to rewrite the entire series (yes, 52 episodes for each) to make it better fit with their sensibilities. This usually results in a fanverse that, but for the names of the characters, is absolutely nothing like the original shows. Keep an eye out for DarkerAndEdgier, elimination of perceived [[TheScrappy Scrappies]], and the Decepticons as AlwaysChaoticEvil.

* MultiversalConqueror: Unicron is a PlanetEater who wants to eat ''everything''. One planet at a time, one timeline at a time, one universal stream of branching timelines at a time, in sequence. When he says he wants to be completely alone, ''he damn well isn't beating around the bush''. Even if he's destroyed in any one universe, he just gets shunted to another to start over again thanks to mucking about with different flows of time across the multiverse. Oh, sure, there are a ''few'' permanent methods of dealing with him, like trapping him in a physical form to slow him down, [[TransformersCybertron but if they go horribly wrong, well...]]

* DysfunctionJunction: Many of the Transformers, Autobot and Decepticon alike, are barely-functional piles of neuroses.

* DysfunctionJunction: Many of the Transformers, Autobot and Decepticon alike, are barely-functional piles of neuroses. The Stunticons (G1) in particular take the cake, as not only do most of them have severe mental issues, but they dislike each other so much (their commanding officer in particular) that their combined form of Menasor is often totally uncontrollable due to the mental schism.

* CombiningMecha: The combiners, such as the Constructicons, Aerialbots, Stunticons, Destruction Team, etc. Some characters, like Sky Lynx, play with it a little - he's only one character, and can not only be either his "bird" or "lynx" form, but can also be both at once, working as a team, and can recombine them into a single form.

** After Scatman Crothers fell ill shortly after [[WesternAnimation/TheTransformersTheMovie the Movie]], Jazz stopped speaking and eventually left the show completely.

** After Scatman Crothers fell ill shortly after [[WesternAnimation/TheTransformersTheMovie the Movie]], Jazz stopped speaking and eventually left the show completely. It wasn't ''too'' noticeable at the time, as the third season concentrated on the new characters, but it did stand out a little, considering that the movie had made a point of the fact that he was one of the few originals who had unquestionably ''survived''.

* VideoGame/TransformersWarForCybertron is a video game that dives into the basic history of the Autobot[=/=]Decepticon war and meant to be a stepping stone showing how that war finds its way to Earth. It takes major mythology points from various sources and re-presents them to the audience, setting up the greater franchise (such as why Starscream is TheStarscream and how come [[BondVillainStupidity Megatron doesn't just shoot him]]). It was built from the [[EpicGames Unreal engine]] and was released on PC, XBox360, [[strike:{{Wii}}]], {{DS}}, and PS3 in July 2010.
