** Skyfire, an "old friend" of Starscream's who is revived and used by the Decepticons, and then seems to heroically sacrifice himself to save the Autobots. Only a sequel episode shows that he didn't actually die, but was buried in some ice to the extent where it took the Autobots seconds to dig him back up, they just didn't bother until they needed him to fly somewhere. In that episode, he befriends Thundercracker for all of about thirty seconds, until the Decepticons shoot him. He's then routinely ignored by the other Autobots unless they need carting around the world, and forgotten about entirely when the Aerialbots arrive towards the end of the second series. Some of this was likely due to legal issues - see [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Jetfire_%28G1%29#Why_.22Skyfire.22.3F here]] for what information there is about this.

Since he didn't have a toy to promote, he was a low-priority character for Hasbro.

** In TheMovie, at least, the Dinobots were still pretty {{Badass}}, though they were suddenly happy to take orders from Optimus Prime and work with the other Autobots. In the third season their badassness evaporated entirely, and went from being DumbMuscle to outright idiots.

* LimitedAnimation: While not ''as'' bad as most shows from the era[[note]]Marvel tended to hide it better than either Creator/HannaBarbera and {{Creator/Filmation}}[[/note]], between its status as an 80s cartoon and its short production turnaround per episode[[note]]roughly 3-4 months. Which also ties into the OffModel entry below[[/note]], it can suffer from this at times. Though ''how'' limited it gets varies between episodes (and animation teams).

** Though given that more than a dozen of companies worked on the show (Toei, AKOM and their contractors, as mentioned at the top of the page), this becomes a little more understandable, And a lot more glaring.

Added DiffLines:

* UnexpectedlyDarkEpisode: "The Golden Lagoon", an episode of the normally lighthearted series, ends on a bleak note, with the title lagoon destroyed in a battle between the Autobots and Decepticons over its resources.
