--> '''Unicron''': ''(in [[GutturalGrowler Megatron's voice]])'' Now, let us see those "mighty legions" of which you speak... ''(in Unicron's own voice)'' ... by peering directly into your mind.

** In [=G1=], what made Unicron so imposing was his immensely deep, loud, but even voice, like a bored cosmic being which he is. In ''Prime'', it's ''The Nemesis'' that uses that voice, while John Noble voices Unicron like an angry god who has to yell to be taken seriously. The planet-eating, planet-sized embodiment of chaos sounds less intimidating than a spaceship (although admittedly, the spaceship was a MileLongShip running on said deity's blood).

** Airachnid gaining the ability to control the minds of Insecticons comes out nowhere and is never explained or elaborated on and just feels more like a convinient way for her to acquire her own army.



** Airachnid tends to be one of the least popular characters among the fanbase, if not the least popular of the Decepticons, due to her one-note CompleteMonster personality, her blatant status as an {{Expy}} of more popular characters from past incarnations of the franchise (including [[WesternAnimation/BeastWars Tarantulas, Black]][[WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated arachnia, and Lockdown]]), and [[spoiler: her killing of [[EnsembleDarkhorse Breakdown]]]]. It's not really helping matters she has actually very little characterization, getting a bunch of unexplained powers out of nowhere all the time (such as mind control), [[KarmaHoudini almost never recieves any comepuppance for her crimes]] [[spoiler:(though she does get trapped on one of Cybertron's moons]] [[ArsonMuderAndJaywalking and for having a very poor toy.]]

** In a rather surprising twist considering [[Anime/TransformersArmada the franchise's]] [[Anime/TransformersEnergon previous issues]] [[WesternAnimation/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.

** The series in general. Is it a worthy addition to the franchise and at least as good as or even better than ''WesternAnimation/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 ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'', Timmy's [[DaranNorris dad]] was obsessed with a cool red car in "Engine Blocked". Now, he's voicing a Transformer who becomes one.

** However, neither Silas nor Airachnid are compared to the likes of the monstrous [[DeathWorld Unicron]], who is the literal incarnation of chaos dedicating his entire existence in [[OmnicidalManiac wiping out life of the universe for his own pleasure]]. Starting out as the ancient enemy of his twin brother Primus (the god of all Transformers), Unicron's legacy has tainted much of Cybertron during the ages; even when being dormant inside the very core of the Earth, his blood (known as Dark Energon) has corrupted much of Cybertron's core that resulted its shutdown, forcing the Transformers (both Autobots and Decepticons) to leave in search of new home. Even after being awaken from his slumber, he plans to subject Earth to the very same fate and later poison more of Cybertron's core to prevent future generations of Transformers from coming, even possessing and mentally torturing an uneasy Megatron to do his bidding through eternal torture. Being a cruel and heartless spirit, Unicron makes no secret or hesitation in accomplishing his goal, [[EvenEvilHasStandards even the Decepticons (especially Megatron and Airachnid) all fear of invoking Unicron's wrath]].

* 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 [[DorkAge more than worn out its welcome]] from TransformersArmada to TransformersCybertron.
