* Back in G1 there were Cassetticons - in 1985 cassettes were the common media for storing information both audio and visual, but they're hardly mobile. What do those Transformers turn into now? Memory sticks that can store over 4 million years of information! But they're not any more mobile...

** This goes extra for the Fallen. Optimus probably knows that ''he'' was responsible for Megatron betraying them for his fell agenda, and thus the one ultimately responsible for the entire Cybertronian civil war. ''Of course'' he would want to ensure this villain does not survive their battle, in case he escaped to set up more misery for Earth and the remaining Cybertronians.

* In most, if not all Transformers series - particularly the Japanese series, [[Film/{{Transformers}} the live-action movies]] and ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'', the Transformers move with [[ImpossiblyGracefulGiant impossible grace and agility]] despite being HumongousMecha. However, this can be seen as Fridge Brilliance since, in the movies and the Marvel G1 continuity, Cybertron is [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Image:DOTMCybertrontransit.jpg MUCH]] larger than Earth - in Marvel G1, it's stated to be the size of Saturn, while in the movies, it appears to be more the size of a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super-Earth Super-Earth]]. Logically, Cybertron must have a MUCH higher gravity than Earth due to its greater mass, and so, Transformers are [[HeavyWorlder Heavy Worlders]] - on their home planet, they'd probably have an agility more like a human's, meaning non-rocket-assisted jumps wouldn't be too high. On the much smaller Earth, though, they can run faster, jump higher, and are generally more agile - much like SilverAge {{Superman}}.

* After their first fight, the Junkions become instant friends of the Autobots. Why? Because the Junkions [[AliensStealCable love Earth TV]] and the Autobots help protect the Earth. So by helping the Autobots, the Junkions insure that Earth will survive to produce more TV shows.

* The movies get a lot of flak for [[AmericaWinsTheWar how effective the American military is]] against the Decepticons, sometimes even moreso then the Autobots who have fought them for ''ages''. This actually would make sense, because the Decepticons have had all that time to get used to Autobot tactics and adjust their own (the stalemate this causes is actually the ''entire plot of the franchise!'') and with Earth tactics being alien, new, and unexpected. America would naturally be the most effective, with them getting their tech from Megs and all.

Added DiffLines:

* During "The Search for Alpha Trion", Optimus Prime deduces that he and his "girlfriend", Elita-1, were created by Alpha Trion. At the end of the episode, Optimus awkwardly rejects Elita's affection. Although it's not stated outright, it's implied that Optimus dated his own sister and just became aware of it.

* A minor one, but the whole point of that flashback to Sam's football tryout? To show us how he was so easily taken down by the S7 guy when he tried to save Bumblebee. Also, the whole Battle of Mission City, he was running with the cube tucked under his arm, trying to keep it from the opposing team as he teammates held them off. What does that sound like?

* Another universal example, the titular robot aliens are almost completely incapable of dying of old age, so long as they remain properly nourished with energon. Throughout the entire franchise Cybertronians' have made strong friendships with humans and similar life forms. [[WeAreAsMayflies So it must be heartbreaking for them to watch as there organic friends seem to almost instantly deteriorate]], [[TimeDissonance from there point of view.]]

* A lot of transformers had oddball personality quirks, mental disorders, or were just plan nuts according to their tech spec profiles. Seems a little odd so many of them would be neurotic? Remember most of them have been fighting for millions of years in a war with not end in sight. They've seen untold death and destruction. Yeah, no wonder so many transformers have mental issues.
* The hate plague episode(s) should be put into account we see transformers vs transformers fighting each other regardless of their side. And the plague later infects humans world wide. The infected individual will attack just about anyone in arms reach. So we can imagine humans killing each other in the millions, or worst transformers blasting and possibly stomping on PunyEarthlings with their weapons and feet.

*** Emphasis on ''serial maimer.'' It's shown throughout ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'' that transformers feel pain. Optimus waking up strapped to a surgical table with his grappler removed and attached to Lockdown is less like [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Bruce Wayne]] getting his GrapplingHookPistol stolen and more like [[Film/SpiderManTrilogy Movieverse Peter Parker]] waking up [[BodyHorror with his web-shooting glands surgically removed]] ''[[NightmareFuel and stitched and fully functional on his tormentor.]]''

** This was brought up on disscussions for 'Ghost In The Machine', where Blitzwing (old toy) had his part rewritten for Octane (new toy). Instead of sales figures, the real case was that the old toys were out of production, and the new ones were on the shelves.
