*** [[TheStarscream Starscream]] shows signs of TabletopRPG GenreSavvy in this episode: when confronted with [[AncientTomb a sealed crypt]] with a curse warning on it, he proclaims that "a curse on the door means treasure behind the door" and breaks in. Unfortunately, he's in a Transformers cartoon, not a [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons D&D game]], making it a near-fatal case of WrongGenreSavvy.

The show ran for three whole seasons, plus season 4, [[WrapItUp which was just a three-part episode]], "The Rebirth". The Japanese version branched off into a different continuity right after the end of the third season, replacing "The Rebirth" with ''Anime/TransformersHeadmasters''.

Added DiffLines:

* VillainousRescue: In the episode "Enter the Nightbird", ''[[spoiler:Starscream]], of all people,'' saves the day. He didn't care about the Autobots, but was very pissed off at the other Decepticons, who treated him very badly during the episode, and at the titular Nightbird (a robot built by a Japanese scientist and reprogrammed by Megatron), who was placed in his rank among the Decepticons.

* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: Lampshaded by Wheelie in "Surprise Party" when Spike Witwicky makes the current date Ultra Magnus's birthday when it is revealed that not even Ultra Magnus remembers when he was first constructed (Wheelie and Daniel planned to give him a surprise party as their way of thanking him for being a selfless hero). Having gone through a lot of trouble and running into the Decepticons while trying to find out the date Ultra Magnus was first built, Wheelie points out that they could've just made up a birthdate for Ultra Magnus in the first place.
