** The fight beforehand, as a possessed Optimus, fighting for control of his body and aware he's leading Autobots to their doom, pleads in agony to a conflicted Rodimus to just finish him off so he can do no more harm. Hits even harder when you remember Rodimus was already carrying guilt over Optimus' previous brush with death.

* Ironhide's TenMinuteRetirement in "The Immobiliser", blaming himself for too many screw ups and the Decepticons stealing Wheeljack's newest device, he decides he is no longer useful to the Autobots, despite none of them holding him over the incidents caused. Don't worry, he returns BigDamnHeroes style later on.

* Seeing Optimus Prime fade to grey on his deathbed surrounded by friends in [[TransformersTheMovie the movie]] was sad. Bringing him back to life just so we can see him unwillingly deceive and fight his friends and then be graphically blown up, piece by piece while he's still alive (the episode "Dark Awakening") was trauma inducing. Fortunately for fans, he was resurrected again at the end of the season. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, the joy only lasted a few episodes; in the Japanese canon Prime died again, whilst in the West the whole series "died".]]
-->'''Optimus Prime''': Monsters! They made me into a weapon, to destroy the very ones I loved in life. But ''you'' will save them, Rodimus Prime.



** Brawn and Huffer aren't dead... [[ContinuitySnarl I just saw them with the Decepticons a few episodes ago...]]

** Before that, Galvatron actually pleads "I'll do anything you want! I'll do nothing at all!" Not even ''Unicron'' was able to shake him up that much. To make things worse, Cyclones wears an expression that, if he'd had tear ducts, he'd have been ''crying!''

*** It's even worse when you realise that it's actually ''his'' fault it was happening in the first place.

* Daniel's inspection of the Autobots entombed in the Autobot Mausoleum in "Dark Awakening" can hit some fans hard. Just when you think you'd gotten over the movie, [[TheDeadHaveNames "Ironhide, Ratchet, Prowl, Huffer..."]] Excuse me, [[SandInMyEyes I've got something in my eyes]].
