** In the Japanese version:
** Season 1 and 2: "You can fight! Transformer!"
** 2010: "Dash! Dash! Dash! Dash! Trans Transformer!"



* EvilIsCool: The Decepticons tended to have alt modes that would seem more interesting to the toy line's target audience like fighter jets, giant robot bugs, and even a handgun (not today, due to [[ScrewedByTheLawyers toy safety laws in the United States banning "realistic firearm replicas]]). Plus they were the first side to have things like triple-changers and a subfaction whose members could [[CombiningMecha all combine into one great big robot]].

* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: In the cartoon episode ''The Key To Vector Sigma'', Shockwave apparently defeated Omega Supreme in battle (offscreen).

* TheyJustDidntCare: Probably the only explanation for the hundreds of animation errors in "Carnage In C-Minor".

* BizarroEpisode: Quite a bunch, most notably ''Carnage in C Minor'', ''The Core'', and the absolutely terrible ''B.O.T.''

* BizarroEpisode: Quite a bunch, most notably ''Carnage in C Minor'', ''The Core'', Minor'' (where the Decepticons try to collect the three notes of a harmony that can destroy the Autobots from a race of aliens that always sing when they speak) and the absolutely terrible notorious ''B.O.T.'''' (a pair of extremely rude high school boys and a nerdy girl they are partnered with create a crude robot for their science project and inadvertently give it the brain of the Combaticon Brawl).

** Starscream: does he want Megatron's postition, or Megatron's respect? The in-universe explanation (at least some of the time) is that, while Starscream is a traitorous schemer, [[ReliableTraitor Megatron keeps him because he reminds Megatron of the need to watch his own back and keep his power protected at all costs]].

* TheScrappy: Rolan and Martin. This duo is so bad, they are nicknamed "future serial killers" in Transformers Wiki.

Rolan and Martin. This duo is so bad, they Martin from the infamous episode "B.O.T." are generally disliked for being far more obnoxious and mean-spirited than the Autobots' other human allies. They are even nicknamed "future serial killers" in on the Transformers Wiki.

Added DiffLines:

** In "The Girl Who Loved Powerglide", Powerglide at one point says "[[Franchise/Ben10 It's hero time]]".

* HilariousInHindsight: In "Hoist Goes Hollywood," Hoist and several other Autobots get to be in an action movie. Unfortunately for them, the human characters initially take precedence over their bit parts, the director seems to have little respect for the Autobots (at least early on) and there's a good deal of pyrotechnics in the movie. [[Film/{{Transformers}} Sounds familiar.]]

Added DiffLines:

** The episode "Autobot Spike" is pretty hilarious to watch after seeing [[WesternAnimation/TheTransformersTheMovie the movie]] and the third season for two reasons. One is that the doctor seen tending to the injured Spike Witwicky bears a striking resemblance to Spike's adult self. The other reason is because the episode ends with Bumblebee asking what would happen if an Autobot's mind was put into a human body, with the aforementioned "Only Human" having some of the Autobots becoming human.

Added DiffLines:

** Season Four seemed like it was setting upon a return to the classic formula, with Optimus Prime returned for good and Galvatron rerailed closer to his more lucid and cunning Megatron self. Unfortunately all but a three part special came of it. ''Headmasters'' at least played with it a ''little'' longer.

*** "B.O.T" probably qualifies as well, if not for just plain bad, due to the massive IdiotPlot around three of the dumbest humans to ever exist and their stupidity seemingly affecting the rest of the cast as the episode goes on. Two of the humans, Roland and Martin, are the most unrepentant {{Jerkass}}es in the series, dragging the third human (Elise) around (at the end of the episode, they tape her mouth shut and drag her away in a mysogonistic manner while the Autobots do NOTHING) and using a laser that can kill people as a prank. A prime candidate for SnarkBait.
