** 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]].

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.

** 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.

** 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.

** The references to Brawn being a ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' in "Fire on the Mountain". Quite a few ''Robot Chicken'' sketches involved Transformers characters.

* MorePopularSpinoff: Not of ''Transformers'' itself, but the ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' fandom adopted the ''Transformers'' fandom's concept of "GEEWUN" as "Genwunners", which eventually became more infamous and more widely debated than Transformers GEEWUNNERS.

** On the inverse is REEDUN, for fans who insist everything be constantly changed and whine incessantly when any new toy, fiction or anything else calls back too heavily to the original series. Yes, they can be almost as bad.


Added DiffLines:

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

** Arcee is either praised for being the first notable female Autobot in the franchise or is loathed for the feminine cliches she's often subjected to.
