'''Result:''' Depth Charge later considers Silverbolt's words, and does go to help... only to unintentionally cause the Maximals to lose the current mission. The Predacons gain the Maximal's technology, and retain Rampage and Quickstrike.

'''Result:''' Depth Charge later considers Silverbolt's words, and does go to help... only to unintentionally cause the Maximals to lose the current mission. The Predacons gain the Maximal's technology, and retain Rampage and Quickstrike.\\
** "Nemesis Part 1: Depth Charge has found the underwater, dormant, Nemesis war ship. This situation is so desperate that he's willingly put aside his vendetta against rampage in order to stop Megatron from activating it. Ironically, however, Rampage still shows up to fight him.\\
'''You'd expect:''' For Depth Charge to completely ignore Rampage, break away from the fight, and focus on infiltrating the Nemesis. Considering that his alternate modes are easily faster and more versatile than Rampage, Depth Charge could easily pull this off.\\
'''Instead:''' he lets Rampage goad him into a fight, which eventually results in his and the Predacon's deaths.
'''Result:''' Megatron launches the Nemesis with no interruption.
** "Nemesis Part 2": Pressed into a corner with the Nemesis hovering above, Optimus flies up to infiltrate the Nemesis before it can recharge its power and destroy the Ark.
'''You'd expect:'''For Optimus to bring backup with him. He doesn't know how many Predacons that Megatron currently has with him. Admittedly, the other Maximals are trying to reactivate the Ark for another line of defense, but out of them, only Rhinox and Blackarachnia are savvy enough to reverse engineer the technology to do so. Therefore he could still take Rattrap, Cheetor, and Silverbolt.
'''Instead:''' Optimus goes in alone, with our any backup, or even any extra guns or weapons to give himself an edge.
'''Result:''' Optimus gets his ass kicked by Megatron. He and the other Maximals only luck out thanks to Dinobot 2's last minute HeelFaceTurn.\\

'''You'd Expect''': He would use his enhanced leaping(when possesed) and quick recovery to [[spoiler: jump at robot or at the girls to take them to safety]]
'''Instead''': He jumps ''right in front of the laser beam'' and ends up [[spoiler: dead]]. While that was a noble move, his LoveInterest was so distraught that she almost allowed the robot to kill her and have succeed if Ruel hasn't pulled a BigDamnHeroes.

** In the episode "Dexter Detention," Dexter is attempting to finish a test, only for a {{jerkass}} student to bother Dexter and constantly ask for the answer to a question.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' For Dexter to pause his test and complain to the teacher about the student pestering him. It also helps that the student is also attempting to cheat.\\
'''Instead:''' Dexter loses his patience and accidentally blurts out the answer, causing him to go to detention. The other student [[KarmaHoudini gets away with bothering Dexter too]].



'''Instead:''' She accepts, leaving the safe haven of her home, encountering embarrassment galore and [[NearVillainVictory nearly getting herself killed in the process]]. BRILLIANT IDEA.

** In order to [[strike: assassinate]] wipe out the Kingpin, Osborn employs PsychoForHire Hobgoblin and equips him with a glider. However, Spider-Man thwarts the attempt, and Osborn decides it's too dangerous to carry on and gives Hobgoblin a boot.\\
'''You'd expect:''' Osborn to install a remote-controlled shut down switch in the glider or, better else, rig it with remote-controlled explosives, so that when Hobgoblin outlives his usefulness he can be stripped of his power and easily [[strike: killed]] disposed of. That's "Assassination 101" for Cthulhu's sake!\\
'''Instead:''' Osborn basically tells Hobgoblin to fuck off, insults him and threatens to expose him. And then acts genuinely surprised when Hobgoblin has the audacity to fly away with the glider and team up with Kingpin. He should be surprised Hobgoblin didn't [[strike: kill]] exsanguinate him on spot!
** Having entered Kingpin's employment, Hobgoblin successfully completes his first assignment - kidnap Harry Osborn - and demands payment.\\
'''You'd expect:''' Kingpin to pay him. Why the hell not? Hobgoblin is obviously a useful and competent henchman, and he's just started working for him, so it'd be reasonable to give him some incentive.\\
'''Or:''' Since Hobgoblin is also a dangerous lunatic with no sense of loyalty, it'd be understandable if Kingpin didn't want to keep him around and got rid of him right there and then. Hell, Hobgoblin's main asset is his glider, well, [[strike: kill]] eliminate the nutcase and get one of your own reliable goons to pilot the thing!\\
'''Instead:''' Kingpin just pisses Hobgoblin (whom he has NO leverage on) off and lets him be: "You will be paid when I say you are paid." Your team-building techniques suck, Pinny!\\

'''Bonus Idiocy''': At the end of the episode, the real Cecile coincidentally decided to visit Arnold on Valentine's Day and ends up arriving at the restaurant. He asks who she is, and when she tells him, he says "But you're not Cecile, ''she's'' Cecile." This is despite the fact that A) she actually has a French accent and B) ''It's the same girl as the one in the picture!'' Come on, Arnold.

** "Call of the Wild": Megatron has stolen a component of the Maximal's base. This causes them to be forced to remain in beast mode, and eventually their instincts taking over, making them easy prey for the Predacons.\\
'''You'd expect:''' For Megatron to simply destroy the component after he's stolen it. He has no apparent use for it, and keeping it around would only cause the Maximals to at some point, attempt a retaliation to reclaim it. Plus, destroying it would simply put more pressure on the Maximals, as they have no way of replicating it. Additionally, if he did have a use for it, Megatron to immediately integrate it into the Predacon base so that it wasn't easily reclaimable, or to hide it away where only he would know where to find it. \\
'''Instead:''' Instead he keeps it out in the open within the base, with only a single booby trap. \\
'''Result:''' Airazor breaks into the base, easily disables said booby trap, (while remarking about how predictable it is, and reclaims it for the Maximals. And speaking of Airazor...\\
** In the same episode, Airazor has just successfully infiltrated the Predacon base in order to recover the aforementioned, Maximal component.\\
'''You'd expect:''' That in addition to her objective, Airazor to also completely trash the place to detriment the Predacons. She doesn't have to blow it up entirely, (as a prior episode shows that an underground energon deposit would run a chance of destroying the Maximal base as well), but she could still destroy their repair chambers, computer systems, or perhaps even steal the Cybertronian golden disk, etc. She's also not pressed for time either, as the entire Predacon force is out enacting a scheme, (which she knows her teammate Tigatron is circumventing).\\
'''Instead:''' She leaves the base intact.\\
'''Result:''' The Predacons essentially are able to return to an intact base and resume the war.\\
