** [[spoiler: In "Evolution", upon discovering Predaking's transformation, Megatron and his command staff plan the eradication of the newborn Predacon clones, before said clones are given the chance to turn on the depleted Decepticons. Starscream suggests they set it up so the Autobots would look entirely responsible and turn Predaking's anger towards ''them'' instead of his creators. Even Shockwave, ''the creator of the clones'', is coldly in favor of the idea.]]

** Any time the show tries to present the Vehicons as a threat, when their aim is so poor. Fight scenes become so much less dramatic when the bad guys' shots aren't even going anywhere near the biggest team member when he's ''standing still''.
*** A serious offender is a series 3 episode where Wheeljack and Arcee are surrounded... and the Vehicons just stand there while the two come up with a way out.



** Unicron's voice in ''Predacons Rising'' being and nasal high-pitched makes him sound far less threatening than the menacing growl of Megatron who he is supposed to [[DemonicPossession control]].

Added DiffLines:

** Starscream's constant boasting about how he killed Cliffjumper falls a little flat after the dozenth time. Especially when the Autobots mow down dozens of generic goons an episode.

* TheyJustDidntCare: In the "Orion Pax" arc, Orion has lost his memories of his time as Optimus Prime, and is stated to have reverted back to his pre-Prime memories. Despite this, he doesn't recognize Megatron as an enemy, despite the fact that Megatron pulled his FaceHeelTurn long before Orion became Optimus Prime. Glaringly, Arcee actually brings this up, but the show doesn't pay any attention to her.

** At the end of "Alpha; Omega", Arcee has a hammy little speech about the balance of power shifting again which comes off as trying way too hard.
** The promos for upcoming episodes, particularly towards the end of the series, tended to reuse the same LittleNo and BigNo from Optimus and Arcee respectively for virtually ''every'' promo. Arcee's BigNo in particular got pretty annoying since it was used so often.

*** Even worse is Raf's attempt to emulate Ratchet late in season 3. Whereas in ''Animated'' it was endearing when Sari took a page out of Ratchet's book in loving jest, Raf is just grating.

** The 'Orion Pax' arc to some.

** The 'Orion Pax' arc to some. The show was hyped up as revolving around the theme of what it means to be a Prime, and when Optimus lost his memories, fans predicted that the rest of the show would deal with Orion re-learning to be a strong leader and Prime. However, at the end of the arc, Orion regains his memories, and the arc has absolutely ''no'' ramifications on Optimus' character.

Added DiffLines:

** In the season premiere, Smokescreen [[spoiler: returns to the Autobot base shortly after evacuating via Groundbridge, and finds the base destroyed.]] It shouldn't work this way ''at all'': Smokescreen uses the same Groundbridge he had just used, meaning he should've returned [[spoiler: before the blast hit, and ignores the fact that Ratchet had closed and opened the Groundbridge for his own use already. It's the mechanics of the show bending over backwards so that Smokescreen can go save Optimus.]]

* SeasonalRot: The second season is considered the weakest of the three by a fair portion of the fanbase, with some outright hating it. Most of the seems to stem from [[spoiler:killing off complex and/or interesting characters e.g. Breakdown and Dreadwing]] as well as wasted plot potentials like Bulkhead's injuries and various other plots that could have lasted longer. It also doesn't help that the second season made use of the tired treasure-hunting trope which plagued the UnicronTrilogy, where the heroes had to go hunting for the Omega Keys and generally go back-and-forth with the bad guys over a gimmick which had [[DorkAgemore than worn out its welcome]] from TransformersArmada to TransformersCybertron.

* HellIsThatNoise:
** The Scraplets, which make a noise like a dentist's electric drill when they're hungry.
** The shriek of the Insecticons, which sounds like a dentist's drill going down a woodchipper while a horse whinnies in the background.

** One of the reason's [[spoiler: Breakdown's death]] is widely cited as one of, if not THE, low points of the show is that it resulted in multiple cases of this; his history/rivalry with Bulkhead went unexplained, his owing a favor to Starscream was never followed up on, and his [[ShipTease attraction]] to Airachnid was [[spoiler: [[ShipSinking sunk]]in the most brutal way possible]].
