* MemeticPsychopath: The above-mentioned line "Give me your face" line [[MemeticMutation especially blew up]] on TFWikiDotNet, and for awhile references to Optimus stealing faces were [[NeverLiveItDown inescapable]] on the wiki. Standout examples include:

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotPolitical: Some accused Michael Bay of holding an anti-UsefulNotes/BarackObama agenda, since he is specifically mentioned as being the president, and the government officials go from being generally cooperative (albeit in over their heads) in the last film to being complete jerkwads in this one. However, as Bay pointed out, the screenplay was completed and filming began at the start of 2008, before he or anyone else involved knew that the ''Democrats would nominate'' Obama. (UsefulNotes/HillaryClinton was still the favorite for their nomination at the start of 2008, albeit by a slim margin), much less that he would out-poll all other presidential candidates. Furthermore, Bay and the writers are known Democratic voters and meant no offense to Obama, and the decision to namedrop him occurred ''after'' Obama became president. Additionally, Obama is only mentioned in a brief line and shown in a few brief shots of news footage, both of which were obviously changes made in post-production. The line and snippet of footage could've easily been changed to focus on John [=McCain=] had he won the 2008 election.

** The twins were improvised by their actors. Granted, Bay could have toned their UnfortunateImplications down.

* CompleteMonster: [[SpellMyNameWithAThe The Fallen]], also known as [[SatanicArchetype Megatronus Prime]], is this film's BigBad and the film universe's first Decepticon. Originally one of the 7 members of the Dynasty of Primes, The Fallen betrayed his brothers and attempted to [[KillAllHumans use the Star Harvester on Earth's Sun]] regardless of the Dynasty's code against taking life, solely because of his FantasticRacism towards primitive humankind. Eons after his defeat, The Fallen corrupts Megatron, creates the Decepticons, and [[TheManBehindTheMan orders him to find the All Spark]], [[GreaterScopeVillain making him responsible]] for the events of the first film. After he lures Optimus Prime to his death using Sam as bait, The Fallen sank an aircraft carrier, attacked several human cities, and slaughtered a sizable military force while acquiring the Matrix of Leadership to activate the Star Harvester again, fully intending to [[OmnicidalManiac wipe out the human race]].

**In the Creator/{{IDW|Publishing}} comic adaptation, [[BigBad The Fallen]] himself is portrayed as even worse than his film counterpart. Once a member of the Thirteen Primes, The Fallen came to believe [[AGodAmI he was destined to become the most powerful of his brothers]] by re-powering the Allspark, then using it to make himself all-powerful. Using the Star Harvester, The Fallen drains the energy from a sun, uncaring that it leads to an entire planet dying, and blames it on one of his own servants when confronted about it. After attempting to use the Star Harvester once more, The Fallen comes to the realization that he no longer needs his Prime "brothers" or the Allspark, prompting instead to travel the universe searching for sentient life, then [[OmnicidalManiac slaughtering countless worlds of their sentient species]], [[TheCollector absorbing the knowledge, weapons, and strategies]] of the billions he slays as he goes along. After butchering his Prime brothers, The Fallen attempts to use the Star Harvester to [[EarthShatteringKaboom wipe out the entire Earth]], [[{{Sadist}} taking extra time to crush humans underfoot while laughing]]. Though [[SealedEvilInACan sealed away for thousands of years]], The Fallen continues his wicked ways, as he [[TheManBehindTheMan reaches out]] and [[TheCorrupter corrupts]] the noble Megatron into waging a war against Optimus Prime and the Autobots, leading to countless deaths and the destruction of Cybertron itself. The Fallen hopes to return to Earth and use the Star Harvester to destroy it for good this time, solely as a final act of spite toward his brothers.

** The film revolves around a titular antagonist with ties to ancient Egypt, and also received substantially less praise than its predecessor and said antagonist was panned for being a GenericDoomsdayVillain. The same would happen in 2016's ''Film/XMenApocalypse''.
