** Pushed to its logical end with the Starscream clones. Despite having color schemes clearly inspired by older characters that had their own names, they'll probably never be referred to as anything but Starscream clones on the show. That's because if they're all Starscream clones, then they all count as the same character; if they were different characters, they'd have to pay TomKenny extra to voice them all and they're only allowed to have one VA voice so many characters in a single episode.

* FollowTheLeader: Despite its relatively short run, ''Animated'' has been fairly influential in the franchise since. Not only have [[UndyingLoyalty Lugnut]] and [[PsychoForHire Lockdown]] become CanonImmigrants, but the show's portrayal of classic G1 characters have influenced their later incarnations as well, such as Ultra Magnus and Arcee having a hammer and twin blades respectively in their ''Prime'' and IDW incarnations, and Blitzwing having his three personalities and faces.

* ShrugOfGod: Derrick Wyatt himself prefers not think about what Slipstream represents. He's also keeping mum about how [[spoiler: Sari's protoform]] ended up in Isaac's lab - he feels that something like that should only be told in future TFA fiction. Fingers crossed...

* ShrugOfGod: Derrick Wyatt himself prefers not think The whole point of the mystery about what side of Starscream Slipstream represents.represents is that '''''we are not supposed to know because it's just a joke'''''. Derrick J. Wyatt initially responded with this trope, and for a while would respond that ''anything'' was the side of Starscream that Slipstream represented (one notable example was the pain the Native Americans felt when they lost their buffalo herds). He's also keeping mum about how [[spoiler: Sari's protoform]] ended up in Isaac's lab - he feels that something like that should only be told in future TFA fiction. Fingers crossed...



** Hot Shot and Red Alert were meant to be part of the main cast, but were replaced by Bumblebee and Ratchet. Rodimus was first choice for the 'jerkass on the Elite Guard' character, but this was apparently nixed by Hasbro.

** Hot Shot and Red Alert were meant to be part of the main cast, but were replaced by Bumblebee and Ratchet. Ratchet, the former due to the 2007 movie's popularity and the latter due to the name sounding more like the old warhorse that the character was going to be portrayed as. Rodimus was first choice for the 'jerkass on the Elite Guard' character, Sentinel Prime character mould, but this was apparently nixed by Hasbro.
