** How much of Blackarachnia's personality is really her own and how much of it is the Predacon programming Tarantulas installed in her? [[spoiler:When she "died" and was "reborn" a Transmetal Maximal she cheerfully proclaimed "Even when I'm good I'm still bad" and indeed her personality was really not that different other than just being not evil and siding with the Maximals out or pragmatism, so it's possible that's just who she is... or maybe it was the Predacon personality Tarantulas installed in her, only now with the original Maximal programming restraining her more savage traits.]]

** Unlike Blackarachnia and Inferno, Quickstrike never had his stasis pods or protoform tampered with, he landed and scanned a life form that they transformed into. However, this means he should have emerged as a Maximal. Is it simply that he happened to come out violent and aggressive and joined with the Predacons because he fit in better? Was his pod damaged in some manner (there are numerous potential ways) and this corrupted his programming to make him a Predacon? Which side does he really belong on and what should his real personality be like?

* ItWasHisSled: [[spoiler: Dinobot dies]].

* ItWasHisSled: ItWasHisSled:
**
[[spoiler: Dinobot dies]].Dinobot]] dies. Not much of a spoiler these days because the episode where it happens is considered one of the greatest episodes of the series, if not the entire ''Transformers'' franchise.
** [[spoiler:The planet they're on really is Earth]]. Was a big twist at the start of the second season that really came into play in the second half of the season and stuck through the third season. Not so much anymore.

** Waspinator may be a Predacon who never shows any ''truly'' heroic traits, but his eternal ButtMonkey status definitely makes him pitiable.

*** For that matter, why did he [[spoiler: let Depth Charge kill him in the GrandFinale, and laugh while doing so? Was it because Rampage was a DeathSeeker and his laughter was euphoria over his torturous existence finally ending? Or was it a way of further corrupting Depth Charge and his laughter was him taking solace in that Depth Charge [[HeWhoFightsMonsters had become exact kind of monster he had wanted to kill?]]]] Note that, like Rampage in general, the two interpretations aren't mutually exclusive.

* Rampage. Is he a twisted, sinister monster, or a tortured, tormented misfit? "Both" is an option, but between the other two options, there was a voice for each... and there still will be if you bring up the topic in the right place.
