** Meltdown, originally Prometheus Black, is a human [[MadScientist scientist]] who ended up mutated by his own experiments. He tries to kill his rival, Isaac Sumdac, in a fit of rage whilst blaming him for all his problems, including [[NeverMyFault his self-inflicted transformation]]. Later, he becomes so obsessed with creating a human transformer, he not only mutates at least two innocent humans into [[TransformationHorror gruesome hybrids combined with animal parts]], he also decides to kidnap Sumdac's innocent [[WouldHurtAChild eight-year-old daughter]] as his newest test subject, deciding to experiment on children in general now. When Blackarachnia breaks him out of jail in exchange for him eliminating her organic half, [[UngratefulBastard he double-crosses her]] and tries to destroy her Transformer half - a deed which, if not destroying her soul completely, would have left her with a completely organic body she's disgusted with. He also forces the Dinobots to work for him by painfully burning them with his acidic touch until they follow his commands. He hurt them so badly, that they were willing to turn on Bulkhead and Prowl, their only friends among the main cast, just to stay in Meltdown's good graces.

** Blame ExecutiveMeddling for that, they demanded that the human characters be shoved to the background to focus on the characters with toys for the third season, including Sari.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot - This is arguably what happened to Sari's upgrade, and her backstory in general. We never see the immediate fallout of her upgrade and near-overload, since she vanishes for four episodes afterwards, and we never find out how she got to Earth in the first place.

** A fourth season was planned out extensively. Some of the episode proposals were printed in ''The Allspark Almanac II'', ranging from Megatron becoming a triple-changer and leading a Decepticon jailbreak on Earth to Sari and Bulkhead somehow entering a mirror universe with evil Autobots and good Decepticons. Among other things, more about Sari's origins would have been revealed, and Blackarachnia would have begun raising an army of Predacons. Then Season 4 got canceled.

* FanonDisContinuity - Some fans still refuse to acknowledge this version exists, their main complaint being the art style.
** Others love the first two seasons but despise the third because of the tone shift from fun and happy to AnyoneCanDie.
*** And of course, there is even a flip side to this opinion as well, with certain fans who weren't as fond of the show suddenly becoming hooked after viewing the third season and its [[LetsGetDangerous more serious attitude]].

** [[JerkAss Sentinel Prime]] is arguably one of the few ''intentional'' scrappies.

** Jazz, the only member of the Elite Guard who was never a jerk to the 5 Autobots on Earth, has a cool voice and eventually [[SixthRanger joins the team in the final episodes]].

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap - Unlike most [[PunyEarthlings humans]] in Transformers, Sari has largely ''avoided'' being TheScrappy. Of course, then there's the...
** RoboticReveal - Sari injures her elbow at the end of the second season...revealing Cybertronian circuitry within.
*** Which also had some saying [[{{IKnewIt}} "We knew it!"]], as several fans [[EpilepticTrees already suspected it]], between having no identity papers and no obvious mother while her father was a robotics expert.
*** Ironically, it was her father who accidentally turned her human, although Sari did assume at first that he built her. Sari's unfinished protoform absorbed humanity when Sumdac reached out to touch her. Good thing Blackarachnia never found out...

** Averted with Sari Sumdac. Unlike most human characters in the franchise, Sari has largely ''avoided'' being TheScrappy. Of course, it was eventually revealed that [[spoiler:she's really half-Cybertronian.]]

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: The Nintendo DS game has rather mixed reviews. While lauded for the graphics and story being faithful to the show as well as having the show's cast reprise their roles, it has also been criticized for being too easy and very little transforming.
