** In regards to the show itself, the models for Vehicon generals Jetstorm, Thrust and Tankor often get confused with the models of the drones they command. Megatron's eye scar also can't decide whether it should be over his right eye (its proper place) or his left.

* DudeNotFunny: Occurs in "Forbidden Fruit" when Rattrap makes a remark to Optimus that he should save his advice for Rhinox and Silverbolt, who had gone missing since the start of the series. Cheetor and Blackarachnia are quick to call Rattrap out on his retort, the former stating that the remark is low even for him and the latter pointing out that Optimus is burdened by the guilt of being unable to save Rhinox and Silverbolt.

Optimus Primal and the other Maximals spend a good deal of the series trying to evade Megatron's forces and set things right again.

* ContinuityLockout: A common complaint of the show was that the continuity was so strong that the show was impossible to follow unless one started from the beginning. Yet still, at a length of only twenty-six episodes, this is not as much of a drawback as it could be.
