Added DiffLines:

* TheComplainerIsAlwaysWrong: Kanawk. Despite him being absolutely correct that the alien battleship will destroy them (they get shot down), the ship can't be fixed (it can't, at least, not without the help of the locals), and that they shouldn't get involved in the fight between the Terrakors and the Protectons (which they do, leading the Terrakors to take an interest in the human survivors), his concerns are generally ignored.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Terrakors' machines are all purple. Protectons' are white[=/=]silver.
* CrazyPrepared: For some reason, the designers of the Robotix decided that they needed huge weapons and armor, not to mention the ability to fuse with alien life forms to enhance their capabilities... when they were stated to be construction robots. Also, they can transform.


Added DiffLines:

* FailedASpotCheck: two humans fail to somehow notice the ten-story tall bipedal Terrakors ''walking up behind them.''


Added DiffLines:

** Exeter has a ''wonderful'' moment of this when he says that "the traitors can eat dirt," meaning that he's condemning them to slow death by starvation (or a faster, painful death by trying to eat the poisonous plants on the surface).
* JerkassHasAPoint: Kanawk again. He points out that there's no guarantee that the Protectons can fix their ship, their ship is most likely damaged beyond repair, and that they don't really have an obligation to help the Protectons other than altruism. To make matters worse, the food on Skalorr is toxic to humans, and they only have a few days' worth of it. Does it make sense to try to fix a broken starship, wasting valuable resources while they starve to death, or is it better to go to the Terrakors, who ''do'' have a working ship ready to go, and might prove more amenable to their needs?


Added DiffLines:

* NoSell: When the Terrakors steal the food from the human snip, one crew member tries to defend it by smacking the Terrakor with a frying pan. [[SarcasmMode For some reason, this fails to have any meaningful effect on the war robot the size of an office building.]]


Added DiffLines:

* {{Realpolitik}}: The Protectons and Terrakors don't like each other in the slightest, but if they wish to continue surviving, they have to put aside their differences and go into the stasis chambers to survive the Nova of their star.
** Kanawk and Nemesis openly state that they don't trust one another, but their goals align- the humans can boost Terrakor abilities, granting them an edge in their fight, and the humans want access to the spaceship to get them off of the planet.
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: The Terrakons are the bad guys, and they're (well, originally) reptiles. Protectons are ape-like in appearance.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Jerkass}}: Kanawk. Not only does he side with the Terrakors and coerces a couple of other humans to join him, but he also steals the already scarce amount of food from the humans allied with the Protectons just to spite them.

Added DiffLines:

* DumbMuscle: Goon is a complete moron, which leads to him being subjected to disparaging remarks about his lack of intelligence from the other Terrakors.

* BigBad: Nemesis.
* BigGood: Argus.

to:

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: All of the Terrakors are bad guys.
* BigBad: Nemesis.
Nemesis is the leader of the war-loving Terrakors and tries to prevent the Protectons from restoring Skalorr on their terms.
* BigGood: Argus.Argus leads the Protectons in their battles against the evil Terrakors.
* BrainUploading: When the Protectons and the Terrakors are put into stasis, some of them end up having their minds transferred into Robotix bodies.



* DisneyDeath: At one point, Nemesis erases Argus' mind from his Robotix body and replaces it with the mind of another Terrakor named Terragar. Fortunately, the humans and the other Protectons are able to bring Argus back when Compucore reveals that a backup copy of Argus' mind exists.



* GalacticConqueror: Nemesis.

to:

* GalacticConqueror: Nemesis.Nemesis' goal is to conquer every race that opposes him.



* MerchandiseDriven

to:

* MerchandiseDrivenMerchandiseDriven: Being a cartoon based on a toyline, this is unavoidable.
* NotQuiteDead: The series ends with Nemesis being revealed to have survived the destruction of the Terror Star.


Added DiffLines:

* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Narra is the only female Protecton in the series as well as the only female character in general.
* TheStarscream: At one point, Nemesis' minion Tyrannix tries to usurp his position as leader of the Terrakors.

Added DiffLines:

* OutsideContextVillain: When the human characters first appear, they're being pursued by a "battle cruiser" and left for dead on Skalorr. It wasn't explained why they were chasing the humans, or even who they were; they're quickly forgotten about as the Robotix appear.
