!! Tropes associated with Actas:

* AnimationBump: Occasionally, most notably in certain scenes of ''Girls und Panzer'', such as the scene in episode 12 where [[spoiler:Miho jumps from tank to tank to help the Rabbit Team]].
* ConspicuousCG: Present in ''Tactical Roar'', ''éX-Driver'', ''Girls und Panzer'' and ''Transformers Energon'' (and are mocked constantly for the latter).
* ExecutiveMeddling: Creator/CartoonNetwork is partially to blame for the animation in ''Transformers Armada''.
* MediumBlending: See Conspicuous CG.
* OffModel: A reason why they're mocked by ''Transformers'' fans. Some consider them to be worse then AKOM. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abgq0gxIfFk&t=0m14s Example]].
