** Any given episode article about Anime/TransformersEnergon will likely have one (excluding the Pain Count). The final episode even has a bit decrying how the whole series is ultimately pointless, questioning why anyone bothered watching it in the first place.
** They take some potshots at ''Transformers: Deviations'', a "What if" comic where Optimus survived the battle of Autobot City. The wiki compares it to a weak fanfic from 1994, due to it's premise (My childhood hero never died!), it's treatment of almost every new character from the movie ([[TakeThatScrappy They all die]]), and the fact that basically everybody hates [[ReplacementScrappy Hot Rod]] for no apparent reason. They even lampshade the PsychologicalProjection in the "Other Notes" section of the page.
