* GenreSavvy+TheCombatPragmatist: Optimus says the Autobots don't kill defenseless bots. When Megatron is beaten helpless by the Insecticon and the 'Bots show up, Optimus promptly tries to kill Megatron.
** Alternately, OOCIsSeriousBusiness. Optimus is usually [[IdealHero much more idealistic than everyone else on the cast]], but this time, he's willing to [[IDidWhatIHadToDo bend his own principles against killing a defenseless 'Con.]] It shows just how far he's been pushed.
** GenreBlind: Optimus apparently believes it's wise to back down from the apparent danger of a Vehicon attack.

* {{Hypocrite}}: Optimus has been rumbling about how he's willing to kill Megatron, but when he has the chance, he lets him go when suddenly surrounded by a bunch of Vehicons.


Added DiffLines:

* StatusQuoIsGod: Optimus has the perfect chance to kill the weakened Megatron on the spot, but decides to let him go once Dreadwing and a horde of Vehicons show up. Keep in mind, these are the same Vehicons who get mowed down in seconds once Megatron unleashes them on the Autobots and ''never'' last more than a few seconds against ''anything''.

* BadassBoast: After getting kicked around by the Insecticon a bit, Megatron effortlessly knocks it into a wall.
-->"You and your beast would do well to remember: I honed my skills in the pits of Kaon!"
** And after he slices off the Insecticon's head:
--->"Let that be a warning to anyone who dares cross a gladiator of Kaon--be they Decepticon... or Autobot."
* ContinuityNod: When Megatron asks for a reminder of Airachnid's trustworthiness, Soundwave plays a recording from "One Shall Fall, Part 2."
-->"I believe we must consider the possibility of a future ''without'' Megatron."
** When asking how she got damaged, Starscream asks if Megatron brought her on [[Recap/TransformersPrimeS1E19RockBottom "one of his field trips."]]



* IronicEcho: Before siccing the Insecticon on Starscream, Airachnid comments that "payback would be sweet." Later on, after shooting Airachnid before she could finish Arcee, Starscream exclaims, "You're right, Airachnid! Payback ''is'' sweet!"

* At this point, the Insecticon is not in ''any'' position to realistically accomplish this... Megatron rips off its limbs and kills it moments later*

* ISurrenderSuckers: Airachnid's trap play on Breakdown has shades of this. Also a variant on the WoundedGazelleGambit, except her injuries aren't self-inflicted.

* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: Megatron proves this to Airachnid.
--> '''Megatron''': You and your beast would do well to remember, I honed my skills in the pits of Kaon!


Added DiffLines:

* VillainousBreakdown: Seems like Airachnid almost expected Megatron to just lie down and die when she sicced the Insecticon on him, acting as smug and confident as can be. When Megatron starts turning the tables on the fight, she starts becoming panicked and ''screaming'' orders at it.
--> '''Airachnid''': '''Finish him!'''\\
