* AwesomeButImpractical: Energon can be adapted as an emergency source of power in almost any electronics. ''Unprocessed'' energon works the same, but used in its raw state is the equivalent of using a ''bomb'' to power your house.



** The Rescue Bots pull one off in the same episode prior to their visit to Earth: In order to escape the Energon Eater, everyone puts themselves and the ship in stasis, programming the ship to respond and head towards any major Cybertronian signals, fully aware that they'll be absent from an annual spot-check and be sent a signal which would lead them back to Cybertron. This ''almost'' works, as the ship instead responds to Optimus Prime's signal to land on Earth.

* BrokenPedestal: Kade was a huge fan of ''Maven Danger'' until he got to meet him in person, who in reality is an EntitledBastard and a {{Jerkass}}.



* ChekhovsSkill: Several revealed traits in ''Buddy System'' come into play such as Hayley's expert-level knowledge in botany after identifying a species of flowers that snakes have an aversion to, and Mrs Neederlander's snake charming.



* ComicallyMissingThePoint: After Cody (now transformed into an adult) saves Hayley's life during a rescue, Hayley attempts to ask him out on a date. Still thinking like a child, Cody hasn't yet learned the language of flirting.

Also appears in the third season finale two-parter, "Now and Then" and "Today and Forever"; it would be hard to not understand that the Rescue Bots are going to die [[spoiler:when they use their own energon to power the ''Sigma'''s engines]], forcefield generators]], but everyone trails off or uses euphemisms instead of actually saying the word.



* NoSell: The Rescue Bots are immune to the gremlin's electricity-sapping ability due to running on Energon.



** In "Today and Forever", Frankie convinces Cody to document the situation due to the absurdity of it. To recap, [[ItMakesSenseInContext Griffin Rock was teleported to the North Pole after a large active teleportation crystal accidentally was dropped onto the island's underground Reactaline veins.]]
* RemovedAchillesHeel: Doc Greene creates a new gas similar to helium called "floatium", which only floats a set distance from the ground. This was likely created in response to a prior accident involving a helium-filled parade balloon.



*** '''''And''''' the episode "Hot Rod Bot" has a [[SuspiciouslySimilarSong mockup of the Back to the Future theme!]]



** At the end of a video Quickshadow shows Evan and Myles, the subsequent UI is near-identical to the one used on YouTube.

* StealthPun: "The Alien Invasion of Griffin Rock" features movie night for the Rescue Bots. What does Chase want to watch? "I vote for an action film. Preferably with high-speed pursuits." Meaning he enjoys [[spoiler: [[ChaseScene chase scenes.]]]]

** Turns out that [[spoiler:Doctor Morocco also built a smaller one and had it shipped on the ''S.S Phantom Voyager'', but couldn't get to use it since a lightning strike accidentally set it off and caused the ship to appear every 10 years per hour until Graham inserts some energon to stablise it.]]



** [[spoiler:Sideswipe]] uses the term "scrap" a lot during his debut episode.



* WalkDontSwim: On the occasions the Rescue Bots have been seen to perform aquatic rescues, they've consistently been portrayed as too heavy to swim, thus being forced to walk or drive along the ocean floor.

* WalkDontSwim: On the occasions the Rescue Bots have been seen to perform aquatic rescues, they've consistently been portrayed as too heavy to swim, thus being forced to walk or drive along the ocean floor. Heatwave eventually averts this after Optimus give him the ability to store a third form, and gets an idea when he spots a wrecked but functional fireboat underwater.



* WhipItGood: Heatwave is shown in "Bot To The Future" using his fire hose as a whip. (When it lands in a Morbot cannon, he uses a KillItWithWater to flood the Morbots inside.)

* YearOutsideHourInside: [[spoiler: A time machine invented by Doctor Morocco accidentally activated by lightning causes a cruise ship to skip a timespan of 10 years while its inhabitants experience an hour before it sets off again. This is shown when the Rescue Bots team (except Chief Burns) reappear in the future and are rescued by an elderly Doc Greene and Chief Burns, as well as Frankie as a young adult.]]

** One episode shows Heatwave expressing relief over doing a sea-based mission since "the ocean doesn't catch fire". [[spoiler It does, courtesy of a collapsing oil rig and an ignited oil spill.]]
