* FiveBadBand: In addition to leading one, Megatron himself is a walking, talking version of this trope - managing to embody all five roles at once.
** BigBad: Speaks for itself. The leader of the Predacons and the story's main villain.
** TheDragon: Averted except for a ''very'' brief stint as this during one of [[TheStarscream Terrorsaur's]] attempted takeovers.
** EvilGenius: Shares the role with Tarantulas. While the spider may be the Predacons' tech specialist, Megatron stands out as the most cunning of the group.
** TheBrute: The largest, strongest, and most physically imposing of the Predacons.
** DarkChick: The most eloquent and cultured of the group. When's he not brutalizing his enemies on the battlefield, he's bossing around his minions with the airs of a snide aristocrat.

* SeasonalRot: The third season gets this reaction from a number of fans, owing to several lesser episodes, odd retcons, occasional MoodWhiplash, and rushed plot points. The animation is seen as the best in the series, though.

** Particularly among female fans, Terrorsaur seems to be oddly popular, considering that he died early on and he rarely got any focus. It likely owes to him being TheStarscream, and his somewhat effeminate character design.

* NightmareFuelStationAttendant:
** Tarantulas ''gets off on sucking blood''.
** Rampage claims that his spark feeds on fear. He's just being poetic... probably.



* RewatchBonus: WordOfGod revealed that [[spoiler: Dinobot]] knew he was going to die five episodes before he actually did right up til the last moment. Rewatching said episodes with this knowledge causes a lot of [[spoiler: Dinobot's]] actions and dialogue to take on a whole new meaning.

Added DiffLines:

** Even the writing can sometimes dive into this, with some new fans being unimpressed by the show's character arcs, plotting, tone, and worldbuilding compared to later efforts like ''Animated'', ''Prime'', or the IDW comics. It's hard to recall just how much of a revelation they were compared to the 80s cartoon. The show's version of Megatron in particular can get some lukewarm responses from people more used to the idea of a Megatron who was competent, motivated, and charismatic, when nearly every prior incarnation was an incompetent blowhard.

** 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?
