* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: IDW Kicker is far less angry and much more likable as a result.

*CompleteMonster: Upon his resurrection after ''[[Anime/TransformersArmada Armara]]'', Megatron discards any redeeming features he once had in his quest for power and domination. Leading his forces in destructive raids for Energon, Megatron plans to use the element to revive Unicron and use him as a weapon. Now a callous ControlFreak, Megatron uses Unicron's power to [[BrainwashedAndCrazy subvert the wills]] of [[BadBoss his followers]], notably enslaving [[AntiVillain Scorponok]] and [[EmptyShell Starscream]] and trying to do the same to Inferno, torturing the Autobot to the brink of insanity.

** Starscream is reborn as a confused, and angry spirit/being, up until Megatron gets hold of his mind and makes him loyal. [[YesMan He remains that way]] without his NobleDemon characteristics that made him famous in Armada. And then the pendulum swings the opposite way entirely in ''TransformersCybertron'', where he becomes a more [[TheStarscream traditional]], yet VERY competent Starscream.

** Rodimus, who led a faction of Cybertronians who said ScrewThisImOuttaHere to TheForeverWar and hasn't been seen in millions of years, returns, and he and Optimus are ''far'' from on the same page. Rodimus' team proceeds to... fall in line with Optimus' within two episodes and never really add much to the proceedings.

** Kicker. He's an annoying JerkSue who hates Transformers for stupid reasons, [[{{Wangst}} constantly complains]], [[KickTheDog abuses the shit out of poor Ironhide]], is often TheLoad for the Autobots, and is treated like [[CreatorsPet God's gift to]] [[CharacterShilling the universe]]. It doesn't help that he's [[KarmaHoudini never called out on his actions]].

*** Actually Alpha Q did call him out on his hypocrisy at least once, when he does the same thing he hated his father for. Sadly the scene's effect is downplayed due to the nonsensical dubbing.

* VisualEffectsofAwesome: Those rare time when traditional drawn animation is used on transforers themselves besides humans, the quality that animation can easily be seen on par with most beautiful mecha animes, which really stands out of them ost horrible CGI.

* AccidentalInnuendo: Alpha Q...''hehehe!'' Needless to say, the famously snarky Wiki/TFWikiDotNet had a [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Alpha_Q field day]] with his page.

** Shockblast's brash, violent personality was seen as completely at odds with Shockwave's [[TheStoic traditional characterization]]... and then we met [[ComicBook/TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye that one Cyclopean]] ''[[ComicBook/TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye Autobot]]''. [[spoiler:Doubles as HarsherInHindsight when you learn IDW Shockwave's OriginStory.]]

** Wing Dagger loses his best friend to Shockblast and then tries to avenge his fallen comrade, performing a HeroicSacrifice. His quest of vengence is almost never brought up when he is resurrected (he has one revenge battle and captures him in his first appearance as Wing Saber, but nothing is made of it after Shockblast inevitably escapes).

** Kicker wasn't just a JerkAss in the beginning: when Kicker developed his energon sensing powers as a child, his father had the bright idea to use Kicker as a living energon detector. For years, he dragged his ''young'', '''pre-teen''' son around space, where he had to deal with a few mining accidents that nearly cost him his life. [[WhatTheHellHero The Autobots]] saw no problems with putting him to work like this, and so Kicker grew resentful of both them and his father. Rather than have him grow to trust Team Prime in a [[CharacterDevelopment charactery]]-[[BuffySpeak developy]] way, the whole "there's a reason he's this way" thing was just forgotten early on and he spends the rest of the series being rude for no discernible reason. It takes until mid-season for everyone else to similarly forget that they ''don't like it when he's like this.''
*** Team Ironhide's introduction hinted to an amusing vitriolic relationship over Kicker pushing around their idol, probably the nearest anyone got to calling him out on his treatment of Ironhide. However they never interacted after their first episode, and Team Ironhide were killed off shortly afterwards ([[TookALevelInKindness though Kicker at least had the decency to lay off Ironhide afterwards]]).
