** The 'Punch of Kill Everything' made it into the canon comics (though sadly not the show itself), and shows up in TransformersWarForCybertron to boot (as both a Leader-class killstreak reward and a Soldier-class melee upgrade).

** Megatron is a combination of [[TheTransformers his original cartoon incarnation]], his "[[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/File:SuperAndUltraMegatron.jpg Super Megatron]]" appearance from the Japanese "Return of Convoy", and his larger and more vicious [[TransformersFilmSeries live-action movie incarnation]] in design, but with a little dash of [[WesternAnimation/BeastWars his Beast Wars incarnation]] added in for character.

* DubNameChange: In the Japanese version, Bulkhead's name was changed to Ironhide so the main group of Autobots will all correspond to the main group of TransformersFilmSeries Autobots (except for Prowl - oops). Consequentially, Ironhide's name was changed to "Armorhide".

Added DiffLines:

* TakeThat: Someone on the writing staff clearly wasn't a fan of [[UsefulNotes/GeorgeHWBush the Bush Administration]]:
** The title of the Season 2 episode, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mission_Accomplished_speech ''Mission Accomplished'']], whose plot concerns the Elite Guard (incorrectly) believing the Decepticon presence on Earth is over.
** After [[spoiler: Shockwave offlines Ultra Magnus and Sentinel takes his place]], Sentinel starts producing thinly-veiled propaganda that ends with him declaring "I'm Sentinel Prime and I approve this message".

* {{Animesque}}: From the same folk who worked on ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' and ''SuperRobotMonkeyTeamHyperforceGo''. And of course, the overseas Creator/MookDLE, Creator/Studio4C and Creator/TheAnswerStudio[[note]]as well as Creator/AjiaDo (who went uncredited) [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BCWd60YVgAw and later]] {{Creator/Diomedea}}[[/note]] ''are'' Japanese-based animation houses...

* RightForTheWrongReasons: Meltdown asserts that Isaac Sumdac merely ''got lucky'' with his success in robotics. [[spoiler: He's right, but he probably didn't realize that Sumdac's "luck" consisted of being the one to find Megatron's disembodied, offline head.]]

* AmoralAttorney: Implied by Meltdown, whose mutant shark monster used to be his lawyer. The ''bat'' monster was his accountant, somewhat relatedly.
** Both are MythologyGag's to the original series: Being sentenced to death-by-Sharkticon was the only outcome of a Quintesson trial in ''TransformersTheMovie'', and in the G1 comic books, Ratbat was, essentially, the Decepticons' accountant.
*** Their designs are throwbacks, too, this time to the G1 Pretender Monsters, originally robots that could don [[YourSizeMayVary mass-shifting]] organic shells to pass as (or, in the Monsters' case, terrorize) ordinary people.

* EvilLawyerJoke: One of Meltdown's genetic experiments (specifically the one that resembles a ''vampire'' bat) used to be his lawyer (the shark monster was his stockbroker).

** Taken to extremes by the ''[=AllSpark=] Almanac'', which manages shout outs to TF fandom memes, obscure characters (as in 'only appeared in a spin-off racing track set in 1984' obscure), and a metric ton of other stuff. That's not even getting into the non-Transformers stuff that gets namechecked. There's a map of the galaxy in the second ''Allspark Almanac'' featuring planets like [[Franchise/MastersOfTheUniverse Eternia]], [[PrinceOfSpace Krankor]], and [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark Marklar]], among ''dozens'' of other refs on those two pages alone.

* WholePlotReference: Season 2 finale "A Bridge Too Close", very nearly at least, to ''TheBridgeOnTheRiverKwai'' (!). The Decepticons capture Bulkhead, when they discover that despite appearances, he's [[spoiler:[[HiddenDepths the preeminent space bridge expert in the galaxy]]]], and press-gang him into building them a space bridge back to Cybertron. He does so out of spite for those who doubted [[spoiler:his expertise on the subject]], many of whom were his own allies. The ending differs in that [[spoiler:nobody dies, permanently at least; the Decepticons are prevented from using the space bridge to take Cybertron]].

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationNameChange: [[AllThereInTheManual The All-Spark Almanac II]] showed a character named Primal Major, whose backstory makes it clear that he's meant to be this continuity's [[WesternAnimation/BeastWars Optimus Primal]], but with the name changed.
