* SorryILeftTheBGMOn: In the third-season episode "Changing of the Guard", when the previously reluctant Rattrap is beginning to enjoy his submarine ride, cheery, upbeat music (a rarity for this series in general) begins playing. Cut to Silverbolt, listening to the music over his communicator with a puzzled expression.

** All over the place. The writers cleverly used [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Anatomic_euphemism machine-based terminology]] such as [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Slag_%28slang%29 slag,]] scrap, or "that guy has bearings of chrome steel" in place of actual foul language. Some of the byplay between Blackarachnia and Silverbolt is particularly clever, implying lots but saying little.
** In one scene of the episode "Possession", Starscream (possessing Waspinator) is blatantly attempting to grab Blackarachnia's ass.
** In "Aftermath", Tigatron and Airazor gasp at Rattrap's new look once he is turned into a Transmetal. Rattrap asks "What's with you two? Is my gearbox hanging out or somethin'?" As he says the last part he waves his hand over his crotch area.
** From "The Agenda Pt. 1":
*** After Silverbolt's illegal flirting with Blackarachnia:
-->'''Rattrap:''' So, uh, where ya' been, bird-dog?\\
'''Silverbolt:''' Uh, scout patrol...\\
'''Rattrap:''' Oh, yeah, yeah, scoutin' the enemy, yeah. Find any new ''positions''?
*** Upon hearing that they may be going home, Rattrap invites Silverbolt to a seedy bar where the waitresses do not have their chest plates on.
** In "Proving Grounds", Blackarachnia and Cheetor make some suggestive remarks about Blackarachnia's digital hologram when the Maximals are examining her to determine whether they can make her a Maximal as she was before she became a Predacon, with Blackarachnia asking if she looks good on the inside as she does on the outside and Cheetor remarking that Blackarachnia has the best lines he's ever seen.
** In "Nemesis, Part 2", when Blackarachnia needs a cable and decides Rattrap's sword/tail will do:
-->'''Rattrap:''' Hey! You emasculatin' fembot!\\
''(Blackarachnia smirks and, with a flick of her claw, slices the tip off Rattrap's sword/tail)''\\
'''Silverbolt:''' ''(disturbed look on his face)'' Oooh....

* BehindAStick: In "Nemesis", Inferno is seen hiding behind a tree that is clearly to thin to conceal him when the recently base-less Predacons evade a Maximal patrol.

* AHandfulForAnEye: During the Maximal/Predacon "truce" (which apparently allows combat so long as no weapons are used) Rattrap kicks a bunch of dirt in Waspinator's face, temporarily blinding him (even though he's a robot). Ratrap then proceeds to give Waspinator a noogie.
