* CharacterizationMarchesOn: The initial wave of toys had [[http://tformers.com/transformers-the-original-gobots-biographies-uncovered/20584/news.html short bios]] written for them, some of which differs quite noticeably from their portrayal in the Hanna-Barbera cartoon. For example, Crasher is said to be male and Cop-Tur is written as an intelligent [[TheStarScream schemer]] rather than the dull and not particularly disloyal brute he is in the show
* UsefulNotes/ColdWar / TheGreatPoliticsMessUp: Yes, the Cold War is still going on in this near future. Nobody in the '80s expected it to end as it did, so this is totally forgivable.
* CoDragons: Coptur and Crasher are both the most prominent minions of Cy-Kill.

** It's revealed that when Cy-Kill abandoned the Guardians, Fi-Tor went with him for no other reason than his loyalty.
** Cy-Kill reciprocates this loyalty, and while he was prepared to kill Fi-Tor in order to preserve the Renegades' secrets (Fi-Tor having access to a lot of them due to being TheDragon), he was extremely reluctant to do so.

** Cy-Kill reciprocates this loyalty, and while is absolutely certain Fi-Tor won't talk when he was prepared to is captured. Crasher suggests making sure (implying that they should kill Fi-Tor in order to preserve themselves), and a furious Cy-Kill declares that would be a last resort. He dispatches his troops on a rescue mission, taking the Renegades' secrets (Fi-Tor having access time to warn both CopTur and Crasher that he wants Fi-Tor back in one piece. When he realises he has no choice but to destroy the Guardian ship (and Fi-Tor with it), he takes the time to whisper a goodbye just before an alternative idea comes to him. He pretty much goes to a lot of them due trouble to being TheDragon), he was extremely reluctant to do so.save Fi-Tor, a huge contrast with other villains from the 80s like Mumm-Ra, Megatron or Cobra Commander.

* FaceDeathWithDignity: When Fi-Tor is captured in "Fi-Tor to the Finish", he sabotages the ship he's in. When the panicked Guardians realise they're all trapped inside, Fi-Tor fearlessly laughs and simply enjoys the fact that he'll at least take the Guardians with him.



* UndyingLoyalty: Fi-Tor towards Cy-Kill. When he's captured by the Guardians, he deliberately damages the ship taking him to interrogation rather than risk even the possibility he might betray Cy-Kill. When he realises he's possibly doomed himself and two of the top Guardians (Leader-1 and Turbo), he laughs at the thought.
