* AuthorsSavingThrow: Kicker is characterized radically differently in the IDW comic, and is much more likeable there.

** The Maximus combiners. Normally, combiner teams are a BadassCrew that double as an awe-inspiring PersonOfMassDestruction, but the combiners in ''Energon'' get introduced so late that there's no time to characterize them and they have basically no role in the plot. Their components also show no signs of autonomy (to the point that most fans have suggested they're actually nonsentient drones or something), and they're never even shown combining outside of two short scenes, one of which is non-canon, making it come across as an InformedAbility.

*** Heck, for some REALLY good wasted plot there could have been an EnemyMine situation where some decepticons and autobots have to pair together for powerlinx. Also Optimus Prime forsake his previously Powerlinx capable body from the last season for his [[FanNickname Fatimus Prime body]] meaning he can't powerlinx either

either. And they even had a Powerlinx-capable Optimus toy, so presumably the show version can do it too... he just never does.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Is Kicker nothing more than a self-centered jerk? Or is he just an emotionally troubled young man who became what he is through his father's neglect and mistreatment?

** Creator/BradSwaile, who provided the English dub voice for Kicker, has gone on record saying that [[OldShame he felt bad about playing him]] after he gained mainstream success with ''Manga/DeathNote.''

* DorkAge: Beyond simply being regarded as an inferior sequel to ''Armada'' (by both the show's fans and detractors), it's regarded as the worst TF show period, due to wasted potential and very poor dubbing.

* JerkSue: Kicker.



** 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 only ever called out once to absolutely no effect]].
