* TheScrappy: Miko, at least early on in the series, mostly due to her [[TooDumbToLive lack of survival instinct]]. After the pilot, they toned down her obnoxious behaviour and to some viewers that has redeemed her to a certain extent. Of course they haven't completely changed her character, making her more of a BaseBreaker.

** Soundwave, a DangerouslyGenreSavvy {{Badass}} who manages to become TheDreaded InUniverse and out. When you keep Megatron's subordinates in line, some credit needs to go to you.

* MemeticTroll: Soundwave often gets this treatment due to being DangerouslyGenreSavvy, often outwitting anyone who opposes him, and being a SilentSnarker.

** The series in general. Is it a worthy addition to the franchise and at least as good as or even better than TransformersAnimated, or a huge let down that ''looks'' pretty but fails to build strong story arcs and let its characters develop with any kind of weight or believability. Like most entries in the TF canon, fans seem divided on whether to LoveItOrHateIt which was pretty much exactly what was expected by this point.

** In a rather surprising twist considering [[Anime/TransformersArmada the franchise's]] [[Anime/TransformersEnergon previous issues]] [[TransformersAnimated on the subject]], the human characters are generally well-received by fans, mostly due to being well-written and having relatable/likable personalities. Jack, Raf and Agent Fowler are particularly loved by the fanbase. Jack is a down-to-Earth, sarcastic teen who many younger viewers can easily relate to. He isn't obnoxious, has a brain which he uses quite often, and has had his own fair share of crowning moments. Raf is the cute one, as well as a brainiac and partial OtakuSurrogate for more tech-minded viewers. His more child-like behavior coupled with some shades of maturity and brotherly relationship with Bumblebee has made for him being a rather enamoring character for fans. And last but not least, there's Agent Fowler, a no-nonsense, rough-and-tumble, nitty-gritty BadassNormal who can easily hold his own in a fight against a 'con, even going so far to taunt one to their face, despite the fact that he could die at the enemy's smallest whim. He doesn't take scrap from anybody and knows when people are messing with him. While he does indeed have his own humorous moments, most of the time he's a force to be reckoned with on the human's side.

*** Going off of that, Miko's behavior in "Out of the Past." Either she's acting out of a desperate, understandable fear for Bulkhead, or she's blown her last big chance for character development and once again learned nothing.

* BaseBreaker / BrokenBase:
** The opening theme. A strong, awesome beginning, or boring?
*** The new season 3 opening has caught some flak from above opening's fans. Just goes to show ya...

** [[spoiler:Breakdown]]'s death seems to have caused a significant deal of controversy among the fanbase, with some considering it a strong moment where the show took real risks and showed that AnyoneCanDie while others felt that it just wasted one of their best characters for nothing.
** After "Toxicity", you either wanted Bulkhead to die after so many near deaths or you didn't. Then summaries for "Hurt" leaked and the writers were either accused of following StatusQuoIsGod or praised for not killing Bulk off, though admittedly more wanted the former after feeling that it was a WriterCopout.



** The second season. Depending on who you ask, it either wasted too many characters and plot threads, or successfully continued GrowingTheBeard from the first.
*** In that same vein, the Orion Pax arc is, to some, a massive heap of wasted potential. To others, though, it's considered one of the high points of the series.

** The whole premise of the third season, Beast Hunters, where both Autobots and Decepticons worked on finding Predacon fossils and possibly bringing them back to life, led the viewer to believe that both Autobots and Decepticons would add more animal-based Transformers to their ranks, quite possibly including the Dinobots themselves. Mid-to-late season, Megatron decides to destroy all the Predacons in Shockwave's lab out of fear of Predaking seizing power one day, pretty much assuring the viewer will never see another animal-based Transformer on the show besides Predaking and making the third season's title "Beast Hunters" completely meaningless. While it is true that the movie Predacons Rising added Darksteel and Skylynx, in addition to focusing on a revived undead Predacon army, the series was practically over by then and the third season still didn't really live up to the "Beast" aspect of its name.

* HeartwarmingInHindsight: Knock Out was hinted at being gay during the show's run, but given the UnfortunateImplications of a comment made at Botcon 2011, the show runners appeared hesitant to confirm him as gay. Several years later in ''ComicBook/TheTransformersWindblade'', Knock Out is not only confirmed to be gay in the IDW-verse, but he's also got a Conjunx Endura in the form of a ''Prime''-based Breakdown, who was always shipped with Knock Out during the show and was widely suspected to be more than friends with him. Now the two are an openly OfficialCouple, which is especially heartwarming given [[spoiler: Breakdown's untimely death in season two.]]
