* GroundPunch: Crasher, one of the main Renegades, frequently used this attack. She'd stomp the ground and send a bolt of energy at her Guardian opponents. The same goes for her GoodTwin in ''ComicBook/TransformersShatteredGlass'' and her other alternate universe counterpart Fracture in the ''Franchise/TransformersFilmSeries''.

* VagueAge: How old are the [=GoBots=]? There are ''young'' [=GoBots=] who needed to be educated, and the characters did not make claims to [[TimeAbyss vast age]] like the {{Transformers}} did, so it appears that [=GoBots=] do age, reproduce, and experience generational turnover like any other biological race (although exactly ''how'' GoBots propagate their species is anyone's guess).

The series generally focused on the "lead" three robots from each faction (Leader-1, Turbo and Scooter vs. Cy-Kill, Cop-Tur and Crasher), who were virtually ever-present. Other characters seemed to rotate in "guest-star" roles. [=GoBots=] had no clear divide between the two factions. The characters, as well as the toys, had no identifying insignias or markings to indicate their allegiance, although it was clearly indicated on the packaging. Likewise, there was no commonality of design within each faction. The only "theme" to a faction was that anything that turned into a monstrous-looking robot or vehicle was a Renegade.

Renegade and their type of voice: Gurdian character had booming, echoing voices while the Renegades had a more electronic sound to them.

* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: A lot of the Renegades have sinister-sounding names, most notably Crasher and Cy-Kill.

* OutOfOrder: The "Gobotron Saga" five-parter was aired late in the series' run, even though it picks up from where the FiveEpisodePilot left off and introduce many recurring characters and concepts.

* OffModel: In a case of literaly using the wrong character model, the [[PalleteSwap similar-looking]] Guardian Baron Von Joy and the Renegade Dr. Go were often drawn as each-other.

* TookALevelInBadass: Dr. Braxis, in the "Season 2" episode summaries posted on ''Renegade Rhetoric.'' In one "episode," he single-handedly captures nearly all the Guardians ''and'' Renegades. In another, his chronological last appearance to date, he's forced to aid the dictator of [[{{Ruritania}} Brasnya, a small Eastern European nation]] against some rebels; the Guardians soon come to investigate. Braxis plays the dictator and the Guardians against each other, winning the acclaim of the nation's people, ousting the dictator and being welcomed as Brasnya's new ''head of state''.

There were at least two other {{Alternate Continuit|y}}ies for the franchise. A British [[NewspaperComics comic strip]] called ''Robo Machines'' appeared in the periodical ''Eagle'' from November of '84 to July of '85, featuring a radically different storyline ([[{{Wikipedia}} the other wiki]] has information [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robo_Machines_(comic) here.)]] In France, where the American show had been quite popular, the Japanese ''MachineRobo'' series was used as a second season, despite the drastic ArtShift between the series.

** Decades after the show's end, the actual [=GoBots=] from the show travelled to various ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' universe (mainly the ''Franchise/TransformersClassics'' one, with a quick stop by the ''TransformersTransTech'' universe first).
** Cy-Kill himself would wind up on the TransTech homeworld of Axiom Nexus, and quickly set about trying to take advantage of it. He successfully recruits several Transformers into his Renegades (coincidentally toys that never made an appearance on the cartoon) before fleeing back to his own universe with his new troops in tow.

* CharacterDevelopment: Scooter starts out as a coward who is completely afraid of the Renegades and constantly whines about having to go through dangerous situations, but his cowardice tones down considerably as the show goes on and he even succeeds in saving the day by himself on more than one occasion.
