** The episode "Child's Play" as a whole is nothing but [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSGN6NsfUdM animation flub after animation flub]], ending with one of the most infamously animated moments in the series (if not animation as a whole) as the Autobots board the shuttle and seemingly '''''defy physics''''' by clipping through it.
** The releases by Rhino Entertainment in the early 2000s boasted the use of the original film elements instead of the (finalized) broadcast elements. Unfortunately, this proved to be a curse as these versions were ones that were incomplete. Some episodes, like "S.O.S. Dinobots" and "Heavy Metal War" were greatly affected as a result.

** Megatron's gun mode. Was it a great design born from his toy, that turns into a pretty cool weapon for others to use? Or is having Megatron turn into a small gun for others to fire ill-fitting to somebody who's supposed to be the powerful BigBad? It's telling that unlike Optimus, who's almost always reimagined as a truck, Megatron changes radically depending on the continuity, with even his later toys referencing G1 choose a vehicle over a gun.

That and the strict toy laws in any country that isn't Japan, since Megatron is a realistic firearm replica, and in Australia, one has to be a registered member of a gun club to even ''own'' a ''Masterpiece'' Megatron.

* SeasonalRot: Season 3 is widely considered a step down from the previous two seasons due to killing off/writing out most of the old cast in favor of new toys, drastically changing the setting and style, and the animation becoming worse than ever (which can be laid at the feet of South Korean studio AKOM, which often produced subpar artwork and numerous coloring, model, and continuity errors, though with a slightly higher frame rate than Toei-animated episodes). However there are a few episodes that are given seen as really good and some parts of the fandom feel that Season 3 actually made some improvements over Season 2, like having a more manageable cast size or bigger scale plots. In addition, Toei churned out episodes with VERY beautiful art, and the episode "Call of the Primatives" remains the best-animated episode of the series; too bad the studio who animated it is still unidentified to this day.

** "Carnage in C-Minor". It's either one of the series's worst episodes with far more animation errors and technical problems than usual as well as a bunch of annoying aliens with tedious "sing-song" voices. Or it's a fun and silly romp that's not nearly as bad as other episodes (frequently being compared favorably to B.O.T.) that has Soundwave's last big role, especially since nearly all of the Season 1 Decepticons had either died or become DemotedToExtra at that point.
** Soundwave's most famous depiction as having UndyingLoyalty to Megatron originates from here and stretches across continuities to be his most distinguished trait. Fans are split whenever future writers try and take him in a different direction (like say the opportunistic snitch that his toy bio was). Is it an acceptable reimagining seeing as nearly all characters receive changes and the fandom's become known for [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks a negative attitude towards change]] or is Soundwave without the UndyingLoyalty just not Soundwave anymore?

** [[BigBad Megatron]] - viewed by some as a menacing, {{Badass}} villain, and criticized by others for being a GeneralFailure (at least in the series pre-Movie).

* CoolOldGuy: Jazz was voiced by the late Scatman Crothers in what was probably one of his most famous roles— at least when it comes to childrens' entertainment, and while he was primarily ''white'' in coloration, Jazz has been depicted as being the slick, friendly, yet badass [[SoulBrotha black guy]] in almost every incarnation since just because of how much people loved the original character, despite him not appearing in every episode despite the fact that at times he seemed like Optimus' second in command. Jazz was also one of Crothers' final roles, and he clearly enjoyed every minute of his time on the show, because he never once sounded like he was just doign it for a check.
