''MoreThanMeetsTheEye.'' Oh so much...

''Please do note that this Fan Fiction include elements from the films in the recent live-action movie trilogy '''[[Film/{{Transformers}} (Film) Transformers]]''' and the original 1986 [[Franchise/TransformersGeneration1 Generation One]] animated film. '''[[WesternAnimation/TransformersTheMovie Transformers the Movie]]''' (1986).''

----

Every ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' fan has his or her way of interpreting their own version of the Transformers Universe, and this Fan Fiction is one of the many takes on that itself. An AlternateUniverse[=/=]AdaptationDistillation drawing primarily from the [[Franchise/TransformersGeneration1 Transformers Generation One]] and the [[Film/{{Transformers}} (Film) Transformers]] with its sequels, but with some massive changes in its storyline, and then including a peppering (and sprinkling) of influences from many other '''Transformers Universes''' and Series. In actual fact, Transformers Alter Verse is meant to take all those stories, put them all in a blender, throw in some anime and western cartoon influences, and create some CrowningMomentOfAwesome(s) for itself as a ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' Fan Fiction in its own right. Also at the same time, this Fan Fiction tries to keep true to the ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' Universe on a cohesive whole as much as possible, but deviates from some of the major storyline in the movie and cartoon series due to the large amounts of '''Transformers''' and Human Own Characters (OriginalCharacter [s]) introduced in the entire story.

This Transformers Fan Fiction story is started back on March 8, year 2008 by a Website/DeviantArt artist known as [[http://www.taiya001.deviantart.com Taiya001]], and as of 2010, has approximately 40 plus chapters worth of stories and several drabbles that expands on the characters on each different faction, their thoughts and motivations behind the Great War, and bridge the gaps during the time skips between the chapters. The series is currently ongoing, but due to RealLife problems and day-to-day business, updates are few and in between. There are currently three major story arcs, and each consists of three chapters each, albeit like a trilogy, and they all have been posted. The entire series so far, can be viewed at Taiya001's deviantART homepage [[http://taiya001.deviantart.com/journal/25603986/ here]] , and the drabble stories and some of the OriginalCharacter(s) can be found here on Victortky's deviantART homepage [[http://victortky.deviantart.com/gallery/12609971 here]]

Regarding the plot of the Transformers Alter Verse storyline, [[Series/TheTwilightZone please visualise in your mind]] a Transformers universe where things are quite vastly different. The Decepticons aren't that evil, and the Autobots were initially a corrupt government before the Great War. The oppression of the masses led to the rise of the Decepticons, who rose up and overthrew the Autobot Senate, and that eventually led to the outbreak of the Cybertronian Great War. Each battle waged on its surface took a toll on Cybertron itself and it became apparent that it was dying. The Autobots launched the Allspark into deep space to deny the Decepticons their prize, and fate itself determined the Allspark's journey to a little blue and green planet known as Earth. [[BigGood Optimus Prime]] gave chase when he received news that [[AntiHero Megatron]] constructed the Nemesis to search for the Allspark in deep space, and their battle was waged across the stars until it reached Earth, where the war began anew once they awakened.

On one side, we have the heroic Autobots led by [[BigGood Optimus Prime]], and on the other side, we have the (not so) evil Decepticons led by the charismatic [[AntiHero Megatron]]. There are also many other races that were dragged into the massive Cybertronian Great War, chief among them were the powerful Nebulans and the enigmatic Seraphims. The Nebulans were first affected by the Great war when Thunderwing's rampage led the Cybertronians to their worlds, and the Seraphims were the only race that defied the Expansion of the Decepticon's Expansion Policy and made them pay heavily for every single inch of ground the Decepticons took from their own Empire during the Expansion Wars that was waged before the Transformers came to Earth.

When the Great War came to Earth, things took a drastic change. Megatron and the Decepticons require a Human factor in their plans to reacquire the Allspark, and this led to the creation of the Humanicons. (Human Partners of the Decepticons) Instead of the typical Transformer Human Characters like Sam Witwicky or Sparkplug, the Allspark was thrust into the hands of a normal everyday schoolgirl known as Taiya Dalton. She formed a romantic relationship with Blackout of the Decepticons and later became the Head Commander of the aforementioned Humanicons. Megatron ordered Shockwave and Arkeville to create a Human Task Force to aid them in their conquest of Earth, with Taiya and Stephen Dalton being the first in row to become Humanicons. The Autobots, on the other hand, have also made their own human allies, and those special Humans have helped them come to terms with what the Autobots have done before and during the Great War.

Things took a drastic turn for the worst, when mysterious organizations are formed on Earth itself, uneasy alliances between enemies were made, and secret plans that had been created for the purpose of destruction were set into motion. Humanity was fractured, and new factions rose from the ashes of the new world. With armies of both good and evil assembled and preparing for the inevitable war, and all the factions were gearing up for conflict, with all the players assembled and at the ready. The board is set and the pieces were ready to make their moves. The deadly game was on, but who will win in this Great War that has consumed whole worlds across the universe?

To make things worse, the forces of darkness were on the rise, with a shadowy being known as the Fallen planning to bring back his master: [[EldritchAbomination Unicron]] and his armies of darkness posing to strike when the inhabitants of life are at their weakest. After eons of torment, The Fallen and his QuirkyMinibossSquad escaped the Dead Universe to embark on a new mission for their dark master: The total destruction of [[BigGood Primus]]'s sons, and forcing their universal change on everyone and everything they encounter on their way in order to pave the way for Chaos to reign. The Fallen needs a new fallen to jump start his plans, and he has found the ideal candidate on Earth, which turned out to be [[spoiler: Taiya Dalton of the Dalton Twins.]]

'''HUMANICONS, TRANSFORM AND RISE UP!! NOW GET MORE TROPES!!'''

----
!!This story contains examples of:
* [[ABoyAndHisX A Girl and her Shapeshifting Robot Helicoptor]]: Don't worry, there's also A Boy and his Shapeshifting Car.
* AGodAmI: [[PhysicalGod Primus and Unicron]] are gods in this continuity, although [[EldritchAbomination Unicron]] often tend to boast that he is the harbinger of death and whatnot. [[PhysicalGod Primus]] (on the other hand) doesn't even bother to advertise, instead wishing to remain in planet form and connected to the universe.
** Megatron does not believe in gods, but ironically the Decepticons tend to look up to him like one.
** [[AxCrazy Galvatron]], the dark nemesis of Megatron in this continuity, is firmly believing that he is one, much to his dark master's displeasure.
* AbsurdlySharpBlade: Optimus Prime is fond of this. He has one energon blade in each arm that was said to able to cleave an Eradicon in half with one stroke during the battle of Iacon.
** [[spoiler: Divine the Seraphim's dual swords can slice through any type of enemy armor like hot knife through butter, and can also damage the Fallen minions due to its AppliedPhlebotinum abilities.]]
* AcePilot: Many examples in this Fan Fiction.
** On the Autobot side, we have the Aerialbots and the various Autobot Seekers.
** On the Decepticon side, we have the seeker trio ( [[TheStarscream Starscream]], [[CaptainObvious Thundercracker]] and Skywarp]] and the various other seekers. (such as Ramjet, Sunstorm, Slipstream etc)
** [[spoiler: the seraphim with their transformable mobile suits also count too.]]
** The humans, on their F-22 raptors and various gunships, is worth a mention. [[spoiler: especially the GI JOES, NEST and FSOF.]]
* ActionGirl: Many examples in this Fan Fiction.
** The female Humanicons of the Decepticon side. The female Decepticons also count too.
** The female Autobot Alliance Members. The female Autobots also count too.
** The female NEST and Joes, as well as the [[spoiler: FSOF troopers.]]
* ActionSurvivor: Many of the main OriginalCharacter(s) have survived battles and conflicts that would have killed lesser characters, and they are doing a pretty good job at it. (so far) Applies to the Transformers too during their various battles.
* ACupAngst: Depends on which female character you are talking about...Human or Cybertronian?
** Most of the female characters are well-endowed, although that's not stopping the younger ones from suffering a case of ACupAngst when looking at their peers who have "assets".
** Transformer-wise, not so much.
* AdaptationalBadass: The major Autobots and Decepticons again receives this treatment in this Fan Fiction.
** Megatron was said to have gone solenoid to solenoid with Sentinel Prime and won the battle narrowly...by killing the latter in the Uprising Battle of Kaon.
** Starscream was able to take on many Autobot Seekers and win, as well as decimating many [[spoiler: Seraphim ships]] singlehandedly alone. Playing SteppingStonesInTheSky with Human F-22 Raptors in the sky in the Battle of Mission City counts too. Truth be told, he was one of the major commanders of Cybertronians seeker fleet before he joined the Decepticons.
** Optimus Prime and Ironhide actually fought back to back during the final defense of Iacon, along with the majority of the Autobots. BackToBackBadasses indeed!
** Soundwave's cassettes, such as Rumble, Frenzy, Laserbeak, Ravage...as well as Blaster's Steel Jaw, Ramhorn, Rewind, Eject also counts too, as they can take on other Transformers many times their size...and give them a run for their energon.
* AdaptationDistillation: This Fan Fiction series takes examples from both the television TransformersGenerationOne and 2007 Michael Bay Film series and its comic counterparts, and adds in characters and concepts from all over the Transformers Continuities and also includes some anime, game and other movie influences into its story concepts.
* AlienAmongUs: The Transformers had been hiding among the humans on Earth for a long time before their revelation in the modern years. The earlier Transformers have came to Earth in the distant past (about 17,000 BC) to build the solar harvester in plain sight of Earth's inhabitants, and the ancestors of humanity were little more than living in caves at that time.
* AlienInvasion: There are some individuals and organizations among the humans on Earth believe that the Transformers are planning a full scale invasion of Earth. Unfortunately, they aren't very far off from the truth. Hence they have taken steps to ensure that this does not happen...by any means necessary. [[SubvertedTrope Subverted, however,]] in that the Autobots have no real reason to invade and the Decepticons either wanted to turn Earth into part of the Decepticon Empire or would rather KillAllHumans. The Decepticons Modus Operandi is to destabilise planetary government, escalate tensions, and then watch the race wiped itself out in global conflicts before getting their hands on the resources of the planet itself.
* AliensSpeakingEnglish: The Transformers learned English from the world wide web when they arrived on Earth, hence their ability to speak surprisingly good English when they initiated first contact with the humans. However, their manners and tone will vary from Autobot to Decepticon based on their specific preferences.
* AllThereInTheManual: Supplemental materials that expands on the OriginalCharacter(s) background and the history of the Cybertronians, as well as relationships between the OriginalCharacter(s), can be found in side stories written by Taiya001 and Victortky. The Transformers Alter Verse Drabbles was created to address this problem. Extra information like what happened on the Autobot Alliance front (as the story focuses more on the Decepticons and their Humanicons) could be seen in these drabbles to know what happened to the other heroes and heroines, their relationships with the Autobots, [[spoiler: how Victor created his company, how the FSOF was created, how the secret organization named Section 56 formed, and how the Autobots face political and military fallout with some human nations...etc]]
** Some of the Deviantart discussions add to the overall storyline of the Franchise/{{Transformers}} Fan Fiction and background details through its scattered ideas and bits of information.
** Many Transformers characters have all or most of their characterization provided in data track profiles written by the creators themselves.
** Expect these MTMTE (MoreThanMeetsTheEye) profiles to have ContinuityNod(s), MythologyGag(s) and even lots of ContinuityPorn inside.
* AlternateContinuity: [[PlayingWithATrope Played with sometimes.]] There have been some roleplay among the creators themselves to see what kind of alternate story paths and endings they can create.
* AlternateHistory: This story tries to stay as true as possible to RealLife in this continuity/universe. Aside from some minor changes, Earth is pretty much the same in 2000s to present day.
* AlternateUniverse: [[CaptainObvious Of course]], this story is set in an AlternateUniverse completely, which mean things may not work out the way it seemed, and unexpected things happened at unexpected times. [[PlayingWithATrope Expect many Tropes to be played.]]
* AlwaysChaoticEvil: [[EldritchAbomination Unicron]], The Fallen and his QuirkyMinibossSquad plays this Trope painfully straight.
* AncientAstronauts: Two cases actually: One case is that the primes and a large group of Cybertronians came to Earth to build the solar harvester in the distant past. Another case is that the Ark and the Nemesis crashed on Earth for another long period of time before the Transformers from both sides awakened. [[PlayingWithATrope Kind of played with]] as the Cybertronians influenced the Egyptians to worship the solar harvester as a gift from their gods in the Egyptian religions, which rises some eyebrows when revealed.
* AmericaSavesTheDay: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] Some of the times they do, and some of the times they don't.
* AncientKeeper: Vector Prime (guardian of space time), Omega Supreme (guardian of crystal city and core of Cybertron), Metroplex, Trypticon and Gigatron (ancient warrior of Primus) all qualify as this. [[spoiler: Some of the Seraphims, especially the High Council and the Ancient Ones, also counts as this.]]
* AntiHero: Megatron counts as this in this continuity. Would be explored more later in the later chapters.
* AppliedPhlebotinum: Energon, the various Cybertronian artifacts, Sari's Key, and [[spoiler: Victor's Allspark charged Keycard]], Mini-cons all count as this.
* ArcNumber: Repeatedly the number "13" due to the 13 Original Transformers created by [[PhysicalGod Primus]].
* ArmorPiercingSlap: Happens from time to time...often used on characters who are '''{{Jerkass}} Jerkasses''', and also used when the main characters need to bring each other out of some HeroicBSOD...or just to show their love in another way.
** SlapSlapKiss more likely in some cases for some couples in this Fan Fiction.
* ArmCannon: Most of the Transformers have arms that can become cannons. Those can put a clean hole through a human tank or a warship easily, with added explosions and detonations included.
** Omega Supreme of the Autobots is a good example.
** The Eradicons of the Decepticons are also a good example.
** Shockwave is also counted as he has a cannon arm as his left hand.
* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: Here's a helpful hint: his name starts with "M" and ends with "-egatron".
* AtArmsLength: Tends to happen with the Humanicons and the members of the Autobot Alliance for humor purposes.
** The larger transformers can practically do these to the smaller transformers.
** Played Straight to type among the [[spoiler: Seraphims when in the Academy, complete with attempted windmill punching.]]
* AssKickingPose: Each major character, no matter human or Cybertronian [[spoiler: or Seraphim]], has one. This stance is often taken before dishing out major terrible damage to the villains.
* AstonishinglyAppropriateAppearance: A common Transformers Trope in all continuities. Most of the time, you can tell a Transformer due to his or her name or abilities. They also choose an alternate mode that fit their personalities.
* AttackAttackAttack: Some of the Decepticons (examples such as Starscream, [[AxCrazy Cyclonus]], Razorclaw, Onslaught) enjoy this particular tactic. Megatron doesn't disapprove, depending on his mood when the tactic is set in motion.
* AttackDrone: The Predator (and many other aerial) drones utilized by Humanity counts, the Decepticons also have point defense drones that can attack when necessary, and the Autobots have these drones guarding the interior of Autobot City and Keys Tech Corporation.
* [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever Literal Attack Of The 50 Foot Whatever]]: Happens from time to time.
** Played straight whenever the city sized Transformers appear such as Omega Supreme, Metroplex, Trypticon and Gigatron.
** [[spoiler: When the Seraphim warships and flagships transform into robot mode, this trope applies to them.]]
** [[spoiler: Primus, when in robot form to use his powers. Unicron, when he was able to devour a planet. Enough said.]]
* AuthorAppeal: [[WordOfGod In the author's own words]], Taiya001 apparently wants to create a Franchise/{{Transformers}} Fan Universe on her own, with distinct influences from the movies, comics and cartoon.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Both Optimus and Megatron counts as this, but the Autobots make it an obvious point to praise Optimus for his exceptional leadership ability and BadAss fighting style.
** The Autobots, for some of the sub-groups, play this Trope straight.
** The Decepticons' Hierarchy plays this Trope straight.
** [[spoiler: The Seraphims play this Trope to exaggerated amounts of awesomeness. Please refer to the Character Sheet for details.]]
* AutobotsRockOut: The creators have been choosing theme songs for their characters, and often plays as a ThemeMusicPowerUp or mood song.
** They have also chose songs to go along with their characters' action scenes.
* AxCrazy: Many of the Villains are this in the Fan Fiction. Some are more so than others. Bonus points if you can guess who.
* BackToBackBadasses: Happens in this Fan Fiction in spades.
** Done by Vector Prime and Alpha Trion in the distant past, against the Fallen and his minions when the latter rebelled against Primus. [[spoiler: Alpha Trion has the sword of Primus in this continuity, and can combine with Vector Prime.]]
** Optimus Prime and Ironhide, Jazz and Ratchet, Bulkhead and Bumblebee, Advocator and Cannonblower are these when they all fought in the Final Battle of Iacon against the invading Decepticons.
** Optimus Prime [[spoiler: combined with Jetfire, Skyfire, Powerload, Ultra Magnus and [[GatlingGood Gatling Guns Backpack]] ]] and [[spoiler: Divine Celestial Dagonair]] during the [[spoiler: Battle of Sera Prime against the Decepticons during the climax of the Expansion Wars.]]
** Optimus Prime and Armourhide (and sometimes Jazz) when fighting the Decepticons on Earth in some of the chapters.
** The [[spoiler: FSOF and NEST Troopers of the Autobot Alliance when in battle against the Eradicons.]]
** The Humanicons when facing enemies of superior numbers, especially against Section 56 Troopers.
** Optimus Prime and Megatron during the events of the [[spoiler: Final Battle.]]
** [[spoiler: Divine and his lover Zoe (BattleCouple) when facing thousands of the Fallen Minions.]]
** [[spoiler: Done by almost all of the major characters in the GrandFinale, in the Final Battle against Unicron and his armies of darkness.]]
** '''What? This Fan Fiction loves this Trope!'''
* BackStab: Starscream tends to do this at times, both literally and figuratively. Melvin, the son of Mark Mc Alister, is also one annoying backstabber, which is '''ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin'''.
* BadassArmy: '''And How!''' Many examples in this Fan Fiction too.
** The entire CrazyAwesome Decepticon Army and the Humanicons.
* BadFuture: ScrewDestiny! This story will see the major characters EarnYourHappyEnding. With EXTREME PREJUDICE.
* BadassGrandpa / NeverMessWithGranny: Although Vector Prime is one of the first Thirteen, he was more than powerful enough to fight the various minions of Unicron although his age would make him a senior among the Cybertronians themselves. He can also fight Optimus and come out on top, as well as hold his ground against his [[spoiler: traitorous sibling, the Fallen]] Alpha Trion, in this Continuity, is not one of the 13 Original Transformers, and hence he was unconfigured for battle.
** Ironhide and Armourhide were considered this as well, as they were seasoned veterans and weapon specialists during the battles on Cybertron, and Ironhide carries enough weapons to make him a one walking robot battalion. Armourhide, the younger brother, was also one due to him able to lift things many times his size and not breaking a sweat. He was also a master when it comes to smashing scrap metal out of Eradicons.
** [[spoiler: The Seraphims' veterans of the various military branches counts as these too.]]
* BadAss: '''And FRAGGING HOW!''' If you are a named Autobot or Decepticon, you are most certainly one of this. Megatron is an excellent example, as Autobot grunt troopers oil their pants when he shows up, and Optimus also counts too when you are a Decepticon Mook and you are facing him.
** As long as you have the word "Prime" in your name, you know you are about to get your aft kicked. (subverted for some of the Primes however...)
** The Autobots are BadAss, especially their senior officers and commanders (such as Prowl, Kup, Ultra Magnus, Jetfire etc) under Optimus Prime's Command, which are Optimus's elite team. The Wreckers and the Harbingers are embodiments of this Trope.
** The Decepticons have various sub-groups that are BadAss Awesome, to the point of CrazyAwesome in some of the chapters. The new kid in the block, the Humanicons, are also badasses as well, with their own unique fighting styles and custom weapons.
** [[spoiler: The Seraphims come from a WorldOfBadass , and each of them was granted a unique power by Primus that could easily make each of them a badass in their own unique way. They each control an element and are masters of pisonic and telekinesis powers.]]
** Even the Fallen and Vector Prime are badass. Alpha Trion was one in the past, but that makes him a BadassGrandpa along with Vector Prime.
** Heck, almost everyone in this Fan Fiction is a badass in his or her own right, and they often had a special moment to show it off.
** This story has examples from all over the BadAss page, truth be told.
* BadassArmy: '''And How!''' Many examples in this Fan Fiction too.
** The [[CrazyAwesome Badass Awesome]] Autobot Army and their powerful human allies.
** The BadAss Human GI JOES, NEST, [[spoiler: FSOF]] and the massive US Army.
** and there's Mark Mc Alister's personal [[spoiler: Section 56 of Sector 7 Army.]]
** and many others more to come...
* BadassCrew: The Original Crew of the Ark and the Nemesis counts. The crew of the Xantium (The Wreckers) and the Goliath (The Harbingers) counts too. [[spoiler: so is the crew of the Spirit of Fire and Glorious Destiny for the Seraphims.]]
* BadassLongcoat: Victor Keys is one excellent example. Yes, he was always BadAss as a human, but now he's a BadAssBookworm ''with a Keys Tech Corporation longcoat''.
* BadBoss: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] Megatron certainly shows far less concern for his troops than, say Optimus Prime, but he's not above blasting nameless minions who disobey or even question his orders, but he doesn't sacrifice them unnecessarily as he would need every trooper he can get. You can say what you want about him, but Megatron leads from the ''front'', and he'll make sure you don't forget it.
** And depending on how well you follow orders and/or your usefulness, he'll be pretty flexible. Just don't fail him though, even his patience has a limit. When he gets angry, it's time to run for your spark. (or life)
** Much like most continuities in other Transformers Lore, Megatron does treat Soundwave with a fair bit of respect, mostly because of Soundwave's loyalty. The other Decepticons? Not so much.
* BattleButler: Calgar, the Butler of the Keys Family. Oh so much.
* BeamSpam: [[spoiler: The Seraphims]] are fond of doing this in their Mobile Suits. So does the Autobots and the Decepticons from time to time, in the [[spoiler: Final Battle, this Trope is all over the place, with MoreDakka, MacrossMissileMassacre and ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill included.]]
* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Averted. The Creators let their characters and Transformers get damaged and hurt when fighting, and those wounds need days, months, or even years to heal. The latter, on the other hand, will need polishing and spare parts replacement whenever necessary.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Bulkhead and Cannonblower can be gentle and friendly at times, but they can kick your ass all over the place when you push them over the edge. If it's a large transformer, they are the ones to avoid getting angry.
** [[spoiler: Divine can be nice at times, but when he's pushed past what he can tolerate, he will wipe the floor with his enemies.]]
* BewareMyStingerTail: Scorponok is a good example. The more dangerous Transformer with a stinger tail is [[spoiler:Trypticon]]
* BelligerentSexualTension: Blair and Stephen Dalton in an example, their personalities are such that they seem to swap roles from time to time, but they typically default to Stephen as the JerkWithAHeartOfGold and Blair as the fawning flirty girlfriend.
* BenevolentBoss: A few examples in this Fan Fiction.
** Optimus Prime backs up his fellow soldiers whenever the human diplomats questioned them.
** General Morshower, who is the commander of NEST. He got the backs of Major Lennox and his Autobot/Special Forces regarding political fallout admirably, no matter how many ObstructiveBureaucrat(s) question them.
** [[spoiler: Victor Keys is also one to the workers of his Keys Tech Corporation, and hence they offer him their undying loyalty.]]
* TheBerserker: '''Bonecrusher''' of the Decepticons. Enough said. Demolisher sometimes count too. So does Sunstorm at certain times.
** Brawn of the Autobots dip into this area when in battle.
* BerserkButton: '''NEVER, EVER''' insult Taiya in front of Blackout and Stephen. You won't live to see another cycle. This applies to Zoe and Mikaela too. Both the former and the latter will have a group of angry Transformers and humans behind you. The results aren't exactly favourable.
** Ask Melvin Mc Alister. If he's alive, that is.
** This applies to Optimus Prime as well. Threaten his FireForgedFriends or Elita-1, he will rip a few new holes in you with his {{BFS}}.
* {{BFG}}: The Transformers of both Autobot and Decepticon have their own unique rifles or pistols, but some have {{BFG}} s that can easily make human guns look like peashooters. Optimus Prime has his trusty Ion Blaster, Megatron has his own unique Fusion Cannon, Jetfire has his dual barreled laser rifle, and Ironhide has his plasma blaster and rotatery Rocket Launcher. The Decepticons also have this among their ranks, especially among the Combaticons. A transformer worthy of mention is Trypticon (who is gigantic even compared to regular Transformers, as Omega Supreme is as big as him) [[spoiler: As it turns out, Trypticon himself '''is''' one. His altmode is a huge orbital satellite. A big KillSat. Later he became a City after scanning a different alternate mode when he came to Earth.]]
** If you're a Decepticon {{Mook}}, and Optimus points his [[MoreDakka Ion Cannon]] at you, they'll need a shovel to pick up what's left of you.
** If you're an Autobot Trooper, and Megatron uses his fusion cannon on you, it means you are more or less atomised bits and pieces.
** Some of the Autobots have small WaveMotionGun as their {{BFG}} s, and a couple have huge guns that can literally destroy entire armies.
** [[spoiler: and there's Divine Celestial Dagonair's Pulse Railgun Rifle, which can easily be a WaveMotionGun like Wing Zero's Buster Rifle.]]
** [[spoiler: Supreme Omega Prime's Mega-ion Cannon Blaster Rifle can put a clean hole in several thousand enemies with one shot.]]
* {{BFS}}: The Transformers have huge swords that can be drawn out from compartments within their bodies. The Dinobots (originally Dynobots) have Energon Swords. Vector Prime has an ancient sword named '''Rhisling.''' The Fallen's disciple, [[spoiler: Xanatos]] has a sword named ''' "Sword of Entropy".''' [[spoiler: Divine of the Seraphims has the "Swords of Light".]]
** Optimus Prime has two energon swords within his arms, which he can use to great effect when it comes to decapitating Decepticons and Fallen Minions.
** [[spoiler: Divine Celestial Dagonair has two swords that he can generate out of {{Hammerspace}} and they can cut through virtually any substance.]]
* BigBad: [[EldritchAbomination Unicron]] is an excellent example. Megatron in the optics of the Autobots, Sentinel Prime and Optimus Prime in the optics of the Decepticons.
* BigDamnHeroes: There are quite a few scenes in the larger chapters that involve the main characters saving someone at the nick of time. During the [[spoiler: Final Battle]], this will happen quite a lot.
** Almost every faction had a chance to pull off a BigDamnHeroes moment in the story.
* BigFancyHouse: On Earth, the home of the renowned Keys Family, as well as the Mc Alister Family. Whitemore's home also applies too. Back on Cybertron before the Great War, the Autobot Senate officers live in beautiful buildings that were paid with the taxes of the oppressed lesser castes. [[spoiler: On Sera Prime, Divine's Aspect of Sun Clan Citadel counts as one, and many other major clans too.]]
* BigGood: Optimus Prime, preceded by the primes of Primus, and then the [[PhysicalGod God of Light]] himself. [[spoiler: In the prequel, Divine, preceded again by Supreme Alcadois, and then again by Primus, the Lord of Light.]]
* BittersweetEnding: Averted because the major characters will ScrewDestiny and EarnYourHappyEnding! With EXTREME PREJUDICE!
* {{Bishonen}}: [[spoiler: Divine Celestial Dagonair and the various members of his Elite Team back on Sera Prime. Most of the males of the Seraphims, anyway.]]
* {{Bishie Sparkle}}: [[spoiler: Unintentional in the sense that Divine has this when he was back on Sera Prime in the Academy, when introducing himself to his fellow academy students, and then again to Seraphim Princesses.]]
* BigOlEyebrows: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] Some of the characters have this, especially the Transformers, albeit the non-organic version.
* BilingualBonus: Most of the Alien language in this story is translated for easy reading. Especially the Cybertronian language.
* BizarreAlienBiology: The Cybertronians have a spark that acts as their life and soul, and they reproduce through creation and then adding the spark to a new protoform. They also have similar components in their bodies that look exactly like human organs.
** [[spoiler: The Seraphims, on the other hand, mate for life and are effectively immortal. They "join" their minds together to understand each other and share memories, emotions and thoughts as lovers. They also can shrink down or grow up at will due to their abilities.]]
* BlackAndGreyMorality: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] There are characters who are in the black region, and there are characters who are in the grey region, and there are those who tread the thin line in-between good and evil. (Refer to [[Characters/TransformersAlterVerse Character Sheet]] for more details.)
* BladeBelowTheShoulder: Applies to some of the Humanicons and Autobot Alliance members. Also applies to the ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}''.
* BodyHorror: The Humanicons when getting their upgrades through Operations, and Project Armitage by Arkeville. (considered the greatest medical failure in Human History.) The various life-threatening operations mentioned in this Fan Fiction can be considered a major understatement of this Trope most of the time.
** The most famous example is the Dalton Twins when converted into their pretender shells.
* BoisterousBruiser: Almost all of the characters are this. Optimus can be a Boisterous Bruiser at times, but Megatron will CERTAINLY let you know you're in for a world of hurt. [[spoiler: Divine will make sure that you will remember him when he's done with you.]]
* BondOneLiner: Mostly said by the Autobots and Decepticons, as well as the Autobot Alliance and Humanicons at times throughout the story. [[spoiler: The Seraphims and Nebulans also have plenty of this too.]]
* BoobsOfSteel: [[PlayingWithATrope Depends actually.]] The Autobot Alliance female Characters, especially Mikaela and Zoe, are quite well-endowed and talented. On the Decepticon side, we have Blair and Roxy, and quite a few others. They don't get any problems when they are deploying for fighting the other factions, or when they are hurt during combat.
** [[spoiler: The Seraphim females play this Trope straight.]]
* BoomHeadshot: Decepticon Mooks and Autobot Troopers tend to get this when shot during the war on Cybertron. Averted for most of the Transformers and Humans.
* BookEnds: The first chapter is when Blackout meets Taiya, and hopefully, the final chapter will also include this moment.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: The creators have added fourth wall talk with the characters sometimes at the end of the chapters, but mostly are just for fun. There are also explainations on things that happened in the story, such as the Transformer abilities and weaponry, or just to explain some storyline details.
* BreakTheCutie: [[spoiler: Quite a lot of cuties are broken and had their hearts crushed in this Transformers Fan Fiction]]
* BreathWeapon: Trypticon has one, combined with his arsenal of MacrossMissileMassacre and FrickinLaserBeams. '''WHICH. WAS. AWESOME.'''
* BridgeBunnies: When the Humanicons get their own spaceship, Rina, Allison and Loren will become BridgeBunnies.
* ByThePowerOfGreySkull: ''', TRANSFORM!'''
** '''Combiner Mode! Combine to form !'''
* ButtMonkey: Dreadcycle and Drone always suffer worse fates in the Fan Fiction. Skids and Mudflap also end up as bad as Waspinator at times.
* CallingYourAttacks: Averted. The Transformers don't shout out loud the names of their attacks when fighting. A few do, however.
* CanonImmigrant: Straxus, Jhiaxus, The Fallen, Unicron, Primus, Vector Prime, Alpha Trion, and a whole host of Transformers Characters are all derived from other corners of the Transformer Universe.
* CarFu: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] Most of the Decepticons, especially the Stunticons and Barricade, tends to do this. The Autobots avoid this to prevent collateral damage to the surroundings and inhabitants of Earth.
* TheCaptain: Optimus ''is'' the very embodiment of this trope, both when he was back on Cybertron, and on Earth.
* CaptainObvious: [[TheSmartGuy Thundercracker]] is this to the Decepticons. The Autobots' side, we have Cliffjumper and Bumblebee.
* CaptainSmoothAndSergeantRough: Optimus is the most level-headed of the Autobots (as he's the leader), while some of his subordinates are much more rough and rowdy, especially Ironhide and Armourhide.
* CatchPhrase: Optimus Prime calls for the Autobots to ''' "TRANSFORM AND ROLL OUT!!" ''' every single time, just like he always does in almost all of the Transformer series.
** Megatron: '''DECEPTICONS! TRANSFORM AND RISE UP!'''
** Taiya Dalton: '''HUMANICONS! TIME TO RISE UP!'''
** The Autobot Alliance, NEST and FSOF: '''MOBILISE AND ROLL OUT!'''
** The GI JOES: '''YO JOE!'''
** The Amercian Army: '''HOO-RAH!!'''
** Bulkhead: '''WHO'S READY TO RUMBLE?'''
** Ultra Magnus: '''THIS HAS GONE ON LONG ENOUGH!'''
** Arcee: '''THIS ENDS HERE CONS!'''
** ...and many others....
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Starscream, of course! He was originally on the Autobots side before he defected to the Decepticons, and then he sometimes defect just to betray Megatron. And we all know he's not working for Megatron very long before you hear him shriek, "Megatron has fallen!" and try to take command for the first time. (and sometimes the last time...depending on Megatron's mood)
* ChekhovsGun: [[PlayingWithATrope Played with.]] Found in bunches throughout the Fan Fiction. Might have more in the later chapters.
** Examples include Sari's Key and [[spoiler: Victor's allspark charged keycard, Taiya's fallen form and spear, Divine's Fragment of Fifteen power orb, Serina's secret Ragnorok Program, the secret button under Victor's table, the various custom weapons and vehicles of the humanicons...etc etc]]
* ChekhovsGunman: Vector Prime, Alpha Trion, Omega Supreme, Gigatron, and [[spoiler: Divine the Seraphim.]]
* CivilWar: The Cybertronian Great War, which devastated Cybertron and spread to the stars, and then to Earth.
* ChivalrousPervert: Subverted for Melvin, he's a real {{Jerkass}}. Kind of played straight with some of the Humanicon boys and the Autobot Alliance male members.
* ChromaticArrangement: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] There is a wide range of colour schemes among the Transformers and Humans themselves, the brighter colours are associated with the Autobots [[spoiler: and the Seraphims.]], while the duller colours are associated with the Decepticons.
* TheChewToy: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] Drone and Dreadcycle are these at times. Applies to the smaller Transformers, especially Skids and Mudflap.
* ClaspYourHandsIfYouDeceive: Happens in this Fan Fiction quite a number of times, due to the number of possibly crazy, scheming bastards included inside. (and an occasional good guy who does this.)
** Done by [[AntiHero Megatron]] when plotting to conquer Earth within the Nemesis.
** Done by Optimus Prime when planning the Final Assault on [[spoiler: America when it was taken over by Mark Mc Alister]]
** [[spoiler: Done by Victor Keys when he thought of plans to outwit the Mc Alister family and save the world through his technology.]]
** [[spoiler: Done by the Divine of the Seraphims when planning the counterattack on the Decepticon fleet.]]
** [[spoiler: Done by Mark Mc Alister and his family when plotting to overthrow the American Government.]]
** [[spoiler: Done by Sector 7 and Section 56 Agents when planning to capture the Transformers.]]
** [[spoiler: Done by Melvin when he's planning to wipe out the Decepticons for good.]]
** and many more...
* CleanCut: When Optimus uses his energon swords, this tends to happen to those who he has just cut through. Applies for anyone who has a {{BFS}} in the story and proficient with it.
* CListFodder: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] One of the creators, Taiya001 tends to use the not-that-famous Transformers as cannon fodder in the Fan Fiction.
** Victortky does too, but to a certain extent. Becuase he would like to give those characters ADayInTheLimelight.
* ColdSniper: The Humanicon Loren can be one when she's serious. On the Autobot side, we have snipers among NEST Troopers and the Joes who can put a clean hole through you from far away before you can even see them.
* TheCollectorOfTheStrange: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] Some of the Transformers collect very awkward things on Earth.
** Razorsnip of the Decepticons, Skybyte's sister and Sketchfan's OriginalCharacter in this Fan Fiction, collects Manga/{{Bleach}} Anime and Manga.
** Blaster of the Autobots collects almost every music and video CD ever produced by the humans in human history.
** Bumblebee collects video games made by Humanity, especially Racing ones.
** and many others...
* CombiningMecha: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] The Transformers are notorious for these, with countless of examples to choose from.
** Some of the Autobots can combine with each other, such as Optimus with Jetfire, Optimus with Overload, Optimus and Ultra Magnus (design based from Anime/TransformersRobotsInDisguise), Optimus with his various sub-commanders due to the [[spoiler: Spark of Combination he has received]] from Primus.
** Optimus Prime, in standard form, mostly combines with his Trailer to form his powered-up form. He also has a SuperMode in which he can combine with Jetfire, Skyfire, [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Overload_%28Armada%29 Powerload]], and Ultra Magnus to form a special gesalt known as [[spoiler: Supreme Omega Prime when he gets the Matrix of Leadership.]]
** [[spoiler: Vector Prime and Alpha Trion can combine in this continuity, and they become Vector Trion. This Transformer is an ancient warrior of Primus, and he's armed with the courage and weapons of Vector Prime, and the wisdom and kindness of Alpha Trion.]]
** The Decepticons also can combine, such as Megatron with Tidal Wave.
** The RuleOfCool goes to the Gestalt Combiners such as Aerialbots, the Combaticons, the Seacons, the Predacons, the Protectobots, the Stunticons, the technobots etc.
** [[spoiler: The Seraphims can combine their Mobile Suits to form more powerful forms. They also have specialised units that combine with their mecha to add additional firepower, strength and speed enhancements.]]
* {{Cool Big Sis}}: Allison is one to her younger sister Rina. Zoe is one to Sari, and Chromia, Arcee and Elita-1 are [[CoolBigSis Cool Big Sisters]] to Zoe. (Both literally and figuratively.)
* CoolShip: Two variations.
** Broadside of the Autobots become a Massive Aircraft Carrier, so does Tidal Wave for the Decepticons.
** Both the Ark and the Nemesis are considered Cool Spaceships.
** [[spoiler: The various warships and spaceships of the Seraphims and nebulans count too.]]
** The Autobot Alliance's secondary base of operations is in an AirborneAircraftCarrier that looks like a VTOL Heli Carrier. (Just much more bigger and heavily armed.)
* CoolCar: Many Autobots and Decepticons transform into cool cars.
** The Autobot side, we have Bumblebee (Camero), Jazz (Pontiac Solstice), Prowl (Nissan 350Z police car), Sunstreaker (Lamborghini Diablo), and Hot Rod (Dodge Viper).
** The Decepticon side, we have the Battlechargers (Runabout and Runamuck) [who both become Chevrolet Camaro SS], the Stuncticons (who becomes sports cars), Barricade (Police car), and the Eradicons (who have a badass muscle car form)
* CoolPlane: Starscream is a modified F-22 Raptor. So are Skywarp, Thundercracker, Ramjet and Dirge. (Practically all the Seekers)
** Jetfire, Skyfire, Broadside, Rotorstorm and the Aerialbots transform into Earth fighter jets and Supersonic planes.
* CoolOldLady: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] The female Cybertronians, most of the time, as seen from human eyes, but to the Transformers themselves, they are still young.
* CosmicKeystone: [[spoiler: Cybertron, Earth, Sera Prime and Nebulos are all these. [[EldritchAbomination Unicron]] plans to destroy them all to prevent anyone from stopping him from destroying the Universe.]]
* CovertPervert: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] Quite a few of the male characters in this Fan Fiction, mostly played for laughs and jokes.
* CreativeSterility: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] [[EldritchAbomination Unicron]] cannot create life, instead he destroys life. [[PhysicalGod Primus]], on the other hand, creates Life and seed the planets with it to form his forces that he could use to defeat [[EldritchAbomination Unicron.]]
** The cybertronians can reproduce with their sparks, but they build their young and then input the sparks born from the Allspark with it in this continuity.
** [[spoiler: The Seraphims reproduce through mating like humans, and they normally bear as many offspring as possible to further the existence of the clan they are born from.]]
** The heralds of [[EldritchAbomination Unicron]], such as Straxus, Gindcore and Galvatron, do not possess [[OurSoulsAreDifferent sparks]], with the only one being Nemesis Prime due to his [[ArtifactOfDoom Dead Matrix]] containing a dark power named the Darkness.
* CrossReferencedTitles: The titles normally connects each other in a sense in the title. The chapters in "Russian Roulette" and "Rescue Prez" are good examples.
* CurbStompBattle: Many examples in this Fan Fiction.
** The Seacons versus the Russian Fleet is one.
** The Humanicons versus the Section 56 Troopers.
** [[spoiler: The Fallen versus Taiya, in the first few fights at least.]]
** [[spoiler: Vector Prime and the Fallen in the distant past.]]
** Optimus versus the Eradicons in the past back on Cybertron.
** Megatron fighting the Autobot Troopers in Iacon.
** ...and many others...
* [[RobotKid CuteKidsAndRobots]]: The Humanicons and their Decepticon owners. The Autobot Alliance members and their human allies.
* CyberneticsEatYourSoul: Averted and then played straight.
** The Humanicons have Cybernetics, but they have certain RestrainingBolt(s) included, and help keep them alive.
** Played Straight with [[spoiler: Mark Mc Alister, Melvin Mc Alister, Cameron Mc Alister and the Section 56 Troops.]]
* DeathByOriginStory: The first 13 Transformers. Only references of them have been made throughout the Fan Fiction, and the [[spoiler: Seraphims enountered them a few times during the visits to Cybertron.]] They all more or less perished in the battle with Unicron. (except for Vector Prime and the Fallen.)
* DeathIsCheap: Averted as much as possible with the major characters, but applies to Decepticon Mooks and Autobot Troopers in the Great War.
** In fact, let's just say "destroyed" doesn't necessarily mean "dead" and leave it at that.
** Offline, however, counts at times.
* DeathWorld: Cybertron is so ravaged by the Great War that it is rendered unhabitable, even by Transformers standards.
* DemotedToExtra: Averted for the main characters, but Maggie and Glen has been pretty much shunted to one side and only referenced when necessary, otherwise they don't even exist. Simmons, Banachek and the Sector 7 agents too.
** [[spoiler: Glen got killed off rather horribly.]]
** Too many official characters got shunted aside to make way for the OriginalCharacter(s) in this Fan Fiction, truth be told.
* DeusExMachina: There are some in the Fan Fiction. Bonus points if you can find them.
* DidTheyOrDidntThey: Played straight in this story. Mostly concerning whether the major couples have gotten together or not.
** [[spoiler: The major characters managed to survive the Final Battle and live their new lives afresh, and most of them got a rather happy ending.]]
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] [[spoiler: Taiya Dalton will later fight Unicron and the Fallen.]]
** [[spoiler: And the major factions will unite to fight [[EldritchAbomination Unicron]] in the GrandFinale up in space. Like other continuities, they need to come across this Trope to win. ]]
* DisproportionateRetribution: Several Examples.
** The Decepticons, in a variation of their combat doctrine, would be sensible and undermine as much of the enemy infrastructure as they could before they went for the full-scale assault. And when they did go for said full-scale assault, they will send overwhelming forces and hit the opposition so hard, it'd take them centuries to recover. (if they ever did at all).
** [[spoiler: The Seraphims, although cooperative and peaceful, plays this Trope during the Expansion wars by using overwhelming force to wipe out the Decepticon invasion fleets attacking their domain. When a single planet of theirs is wiped out, they paid the Decepticons back a thousand-fold.]]
* DoomedByCanon: Arguably, the 13 Original Transformers, with a few averting death. Due to the fact that this is a Fan Fiction, this Trope will be most likely averted or even defied.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Most of the Transformers swear language used, as well as the names of the [[spoiler: Seraphim spaceships, such as Messiah, Spirit, Destiny etc...]]
* DoNotGoGentle: [[spoiler: During the Final Battle, most of the characters are this way, fighting to the bitter end with the best of their abilities to prevent Unicron from winning and stopping the Fallen from activating the Solar Harvester.]]
* DrillSergeantNasty: Ironhide was a Drill Sergeant back on Cybertron, in addition to being a weapons specialist.
** Onslaught of the Combaticons was also one of the Drill Sergeants of Boot Camp on Cybertron's Military Academy.
* TheDragon: Starscream was initially TheDragon for Megatron. [[spoiler: Of course, he was TheStarscream all along.]] The position was later passed to Soundwave as he was more loyal.
** Optimus Prime's [[TheDragon Dragon]] is actually Jazz. His choice was initially Bumblebee, but then again Bumblebee is a little too violent in this continuity...
** The [[TheDragon Dragon]] for Mark Mc Alister is his son Melvin actually, most of the time.
** Victor's [[TheDragon Dragon]] is actually his second-in-command named [[spoiler: Rex.]]
** [[spoiler: Divine of the Seraphims' [[TheDragon Dragon]] is actually Finox, TheLancer and TheSmartGuy.]]
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] The Creators tend to avoid killing off characters, but the supporting characters got killed off pretty easily.
** [[spoiler: Glen was killed off rather painfully.]]
* DumbMuscle: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] The Dinobots are good example of this. Tidal Wave too.
* DudeShesLikeInAComa: Averted in this story with the female characters. Depends on the creators whether this will happen or not.
* DysfunctionJunction: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] No matter what species they are, each of the characters in this Transformers Fan Fiction has a significant psychological issue, a troubled past, or parental issue.
** The Humanicons are excellent examples of these.
** The Mc Alister family is one BigScrewedUpFamily, truth be told.
* EarthShatteringKaboom: Happens whenever a major character uses his or her {{BFG}}, or a spaceship using its orbital weaponry.
** Applies to [[spoiler: Divine when he uses his Pulse Railgun Rifle on an enemy.]]
** Whenever [[spoiler: Supreme Omega Prime uses his Mega-ion Cannon to clear a path.]]
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] Some of the Male Characters in this Fan Fiction. Bonus points if you can guess them.
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] Not exactly, but this Fan Fiction has some. [[spoiler: Xeria was a princess in this story, and so are many of the female Seraphims before they became warriors. Zoe later was reborn as a Seraphim and became one as the manifestation of Xeria.]]
* EvilutionaryBiologist: Professor Arkeville. Although he's AxCrazy mildly. If you see those people he experimented on, you will know.
* ExpressiveHair: [[spoiler: Divine and the Seraphims play this Trope straight with their hairstyles.]]
* EyeLightsOut: When the Transformers of both Factions go offline or aka die.
* FallingIntoTheCockpit: Averted. [[spoiler: Divine had TrainingFromHell before he was able to pilot his specially designed Mobile Suit as a professsional.]] This applies to the Humanicons and the Autobot Alliance members with their vehicles. Good thing the vehicles are actually Transformers sometimes, so it's kind of a reconstructed trope.
* {{Fanservice}}: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] Happens depending on the creator's mood in the Fan Fiction.
* FateWorseThanDeath: The [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Heralds of Unicron]] are little more than living zombies, with limited intelligence but infused with various dangerous dark powers.
* FetishFuelStationAttendant: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] Blair, and some of the more beautiful and "talented" female Humanicons. [[spoiler: Zoe can be considered as one when evolved into her Seraphim form, as she's practically a goddess in that form.]]
* FrickinLaserBeams: Transformers of both Autobots and Decepticons tend to do this with their weapons. Their spaceships also do apply to this Trope. [[spoiler: The Seraphims also have these applied to their Mobile Suits and Spacecraft.]]
* FromBadToWorse: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] The TFAV Memoirs Chapter.
** [[spoiler: To give you an idea, the Mc Alister family won, and the Autobots and Decepticons are nearly defeated, and The Fallen is coming back.]]
* GlamorousWartimeSinger: Cassandra for the Autobot Side, and Vera for the Decepticon side.
* {{Gainaxing}}: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] Applies to the female characters of this story, especially the more well-endowed ones.
* GenreSavvy: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] The characters of this story were dangerously GenreSavvy, due to the fact they are either professionals in their respective fields, or just know that what will happen if they don't get things done at the correct moment. (often leads to injury, death or otherwise.)
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] These moments happen when the Humanicons got themselves stuck in a tight spot during and after battles, and also with the Autobot Alliance members at times when things don't go exactly as planned.
** [[spoiler: Also among the Seraphims, especially among the various clan members within Gold Team.]]
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: Applies to the Fallen, his QuirkyMinibossSquad, and [[EldritchAbomination Unicron.]] Also applies to Vector Prime, Optimus Prime, Alpha Trion, Ultra Magnus, Jetfire, Megatron, Starscream, Blackout, Omega Supreme, Trypticon, Metroplex, Gigatron when they are about to kick serious ass in the story. [[spoiler: When Divine the Seraphim gets this, enemies die in masses.]]
** When [[PhysicalGod Primus, the God of Light]] gets this, you are in for '''A LOT''' of asskicking.
* GodivaHair: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] Happens a little to the female characters in this Fan Fiction.
* GoodColorsEvilColors: The most basic example is that Decepticons tend to have red optics, while Autobots have blue optics. However, exceptions exist among the Transformers.
** The Decepticons love dull colours like grey, black and purple, while the Autobots love to use brighter colours like red, blue and yellow.
* GracefulLoser: Completely defied. [[spoiler: Even after having thrown everything including the hook, line and sinker at the heroes, Unicron (instead of heaving a sigh of defeat) was instead shouting maddeningly as he, along with his minions, were blasted by the heroes into the void.]]
* GroupieBrigade: Cassandra and Vera, the Autobot and Decepticon singers had this. Moreso for the former than the latter.
* GunshipRescue: Most of the time done by the Autobot Alliance, the Joes and NEST forces.
* {{Hammerspace}}: Most Cybertronians and [[spoiler: Seraphims]] have access to subspace pockets to store weapons or specialized equipment. The Humanicons and the Autobot Alliance members have yet to get those.
* HalfHumanHybrid: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] [[spoiler: Divine, after transforming (pun intended) himself into a human male, is literally half a human on the outside and a seraphim on the inside. Applies to Zoe after her final evolution. Taiya and the Humanicons are literally half-cybertronian hybrids.]]
* HealingFactor: The [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Heralds of Unicron]] can instantaneously heal themselves from all but the most grievous of injuries. As normal weaponry cannot harm them, only a {{BFS}} (like Vector Prime's sword), {{BFG}} (like Optimus Prime's ion cannon), or a MacGuffin like the Matrix of Leadership (or the Allspark) can pack enough punch to seriously injure or even kill them.
* TheHeartless: The [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Heralds of Unicron]] are these, especially Straxus and Nemesis Prime. The minions of Unicron, meanwhile, [[NightmareFuel are literally embodiments of this trope]].
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Starscream again, due to ChronicBackstabbingDisorder. He likes to switch sides to find options that benefit him the most. Some of the other Decepticons also qualify too.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] For the Transformers side, none yet. But on the human side, we have [[spoiler: Professor Yoshiro, James Mc Alister, Arkeville, Simmons and Banachek, and many others that will switch sides when given a chance later in the story.]]
* HelloBoys: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] The female Humanicons, but mostly Blair. Oh God, Blair to her love interest Stephen. Causes awkward moments whenever she does this.
** The Autobot girls? Not so much.
** Well, maybe a little here and there.
** Arcee, Chromia, Firestar, Greenlight, Lancer, Flareup, Elita-1, Moon Racer are these, and more for the Autobot side.
** The Decepticon side we have Dreadcycle, Slipstream, Strika, and more for the Decepticon side.
** [[spoiler: The Seraphims? Rarely, so fat chance.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] This Trope will be played many more times in this Fan Fiction.
** Many of the main Transformers and Humans are prepared to make this when fighing the Final Battle in the GrandFinale.
* HighSpeedMissileDodge: Applies to the Seekers of both faction origin when in battle. Also for the [[AcePilot Ace Pilots]] for the Human side, mostly the G.I.Joes and the Autobot Alliance members.
* HimeCut: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] [[spoiler: Divine and Xeria, and most of the Seraphims, so very much.]]
* HoldYourHippogriffs: Cybertronians have a number of [[{{UnusualEuphemism}} Unusual Euphemisms]] that they use in place of English counterparts.
* HumansAreWarriors: Depends on the situation, but moreso for the armed forces like NEST, FSOF and the Autobot Alliance.
** The Humanicons also count too.
* HumongousMecha: Most normal Cybertronians, such as Autobots and Decepticons, [[spoiler: and the Seraphims too]] tend to tower over humans smaller Transfomers. They are, in turn, towered over by Omega Supreme, Metroplex, Trypticon and Gigatron. Primus and Unicron, meanwhile, dwarf everyone as they are planet-sized.
* {{HSQ}}: OverNineThousand. And still counting when it reaches the Final Battle in the GrandFinale, which it will most likely go UpToEleven.
* HumanAliens: The Cybertronians have human-like emotions and feelings, and the [[spoiler: Seraphims mate in the same way as humans do. Their standard forms are humanoid and human-like, although they look like Transformer-sized humans with the look of [[OurElvesAreBetter space elves.]] ]]
* IconicItem: The Matrix of Leadership, as always, is strongly associated with the Primes, and especially Optimus.
** [[spoiler: The Fragment of Fifteen, currently in the possession of Divine the Seraphim, also counts as he would later give this power to someone he loves to save her from death and grant extraordinary powers to her.]]
* [[IDidntMeanToTurnYouOn I Didn't Mean To Turn You On]]: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] Happens from time to time among the cast. Mostly results in Awkward situations. Moreso Less so (depending on the creators themselves) for the major couples in this Fan Fiction.
* IdolSinger: Again, Cassandra and Vera. Autobot and Decepticon side respectively.
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] Each chapter focuses on something important in the Alter Verse story. For example, the confrontation with Russia is explored in "Russian Roulette", the Rescue of President Whitemore is seen in "Rescue Prez", and the formation of Eclipse into Fallen form is explored in "Ascension of Fallen Eclipse". More of '''ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin''' for each chapter.
* IGotYouCovered: During the Fan Fiction's final battle. Also happens throughout the main story at times, and featured prominently [[spoiler: in the prequel of Divine's story.]] Whenever there's a battle in space or the air, this Trope is applied.
* ImmortalityImmorality: The Heralds of Unicron and the first 13 Transfomers of Primus, again, are nigh-immortal and decidedly unnatural. They are effectively immortal and live for millions of years. [[spoiler: The Seraphims also count too, as the High Council were older than they look.]]
* ImmuneToBullets: Standard human small arms aren't going even hurt Cybertronians - specially-made rocket-propelled sabot rounds and larger munitions are another matter as they can technically knock Cybertronians offline or damage their bodies. As for the Transformers themselves, their weaker weapons aren't much good against the Heralds - you require {{BFS}}, {{BFG}} or an [[MacGuffin ancient Artifact]] in order to even hurt them.
* ImprobableAge: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] The Humanicons are teenagers at best when taken to fight for the Decepticons. So are some of the Autobot Alliance members. [[spoiler: The Seraphims' military force trains their soldiers from young, and they are literally ProfessionalKillers in their own right.]]
* ImprobablePilotingSkills: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] Naturally. Applies to the Humanicons and the Auobot Alliance members, the Joes, and the NEST and FSOF Troopers.
** [[spoiler: Divine is the master of this Trope with his mecha piloting skills]]
** The evil side has the Section 56 troopers of Sector 7, under the command of the Mc Alister Family.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] Arguably, some of the villians in the story. Averted as much as possible for the main and supporting characters.
* ImTakingHerHomeWithMe!: [[spoiler: Rina, Marta (android form), Sari, and Patricia.]]
* [[ImplacableMan Implacable Ship]]: The Nemesis, the Flagship of the Decepticons, [[spoiler: in the prequel, took a direct hit from the Ark's weapon systems, the spaceship of the Autobots, and still suffered minor damage.]]
** Averted when the Nemesis was hit by [[spoiler: over a thousand pulse railgun rounds from the Seraphim's Orbital Defense platform. The results are not pretty.]]
* ImpossiblyLowNeckline: Blair has an outfit like this most of the time. {{Fanservice}} galore! [[spoiler: Zoe's dress has one when she's going on a date with Victor.]]
* IncurableCoughOfDeath: The Autobots, when infected with scraplets or cosmic rust. They got better though.
* InfiniteSupplies: Averted, as energon is running out fast during the war on Cybertron, and now the Transformers were living off substitutes until Earth was found to be rich in energon like fuel.
* {{Instrumentality}}: Vector Sigma is an example of this, as all the Transformers are one before they were made into protoforms.
* InsultBackfire: A certain Variation.
** When the Decepticons revealed that the Autobots are actually a corrupt government and suppressed the minors through force and corruption, public opinion turned against the Autobots turned to their favour. What do the Autobots do? Held a press conference and revealed all the information about the Decepticons conquering and destroying worlds to expand their empire, with the testimony personally from a Decepticon Turncoat known as Drift (wink wink). Immediately, The Decepticons were too stunned to do anything else but gawk at the truth.
* {{Introdump}}: Played straight in the catch up chapter [[http://victortky.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d2h5ciq TFAV, the story so far]].
* IShallTauntYou: Played to exaggerated amounts with The Fallen and [[EldritchAbomination Unicron.]]
* ItsAllMyFault: Taiya, oh so much when she becomes [[spoiler: The new Fallen of the Earth and killed quite a lot of Transformers and Humans.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: Melvin, the son of Mark Mc Alister.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Sam Witwicky (at times) and Stephen Dalton (at times) both play this trope fairly straight, respectively demonstrating the Angsty Pretty Boy and Too-Cool Ladies' Man variants.
* JustAMachine: Averted as the Transfomers are sentient alien robot lifeforms from the planet of Cybertron.
* KidAppealCharacter: The former TropeNamer Bumblebee appears, but he's a grizzly veteran of the war and hence was more radical and violent than usual, and hence he did not quite help out on the public relations with the Autobots. In terms of fostering human-Cybertronian relations, Jazz (Optimus's second-in-command) helps out more than Bumblebee.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: Some supporting characters and Transformers.]]
** [[spoiler: Glen is killed off.]]
* TheLadysFavour: [[spoiler: Some of the major characters does this for the battles waged in the Fan Fiction. Moreso for the Final Battle]]
* LampshadeHanging: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] Happens in this story quite a number of times.
* LikeYouWereDying: [[spoiler: Taiya's moments with Blackout when she was in her Fallen form.]].
** Same Trope applies to Victor and Zoe.
* LightIsGood[=/=]DarkIsNotEvil - The Autobots and Primus are all generally out to do good. The Decepticons, meanwhile, aren't all pure evil, as when the Humanicons discovered when they bonded with their Decepticon partners.
* LikeRealityUnlessNoted: Even counting in the presence of Cybertronians [[spoiler: and Seraphims]], there are some minor changes from RealLife, such as Obama and Putin are not the Presidents of US and Russia as an example.
* LimitedWardrobe: Adverted, as the characters were described to be in different clothes throughout the series.
* LiteraryAllusionTitle: There are some references to some Anime and Televison shows from the titles in the chapters.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: Again, Transformers Series are common for including many characters. This Fan Fiction introduces many Transformers and Human characters, including OriginalCharacter(s) and as well as a new mysterious race named [[spoiler: the Seraphims.]][[FromBadToWorse Yet more are still coming.]]
* LoudOfWar: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] Soundwave and Blaster are the masters of this Trope, as they tend to use soundwaves (no pun intended Soundwave) as a form of attack when in battle. Soundwave's cassette minions, Rumble and Frenzy used ultra-sound and infra-sound respectively (although the cartoon opted for earthquake-inducing earthpounders instead). Thundercracker's sonic boom could collapse structures and blow up enemy jets, and Dirge's engine vibrations were supposed to induce panic in his victims.
* MacGuffin: [[PlayingWithATrope Played with.]] The Artifacts of Primus, such as the Matrix of Leadership, although useless at first, later fits an important throughout the story.
** The Allspark in this fan fiction fits this trope nicely...until the later chapters.
* MacrossMissileMassacre: The Seekers, Starscream, Skywarp and Thundercracker, are fond of these. They pack enough missiles to make a bunch of patroit missile turrets look like peashooters. The Autobots are also applying this Trope to their weapons as well, as their missile launchers and rocket launchers can cause a missile spam within seconds.
** [[spoiler: The Seraphim Ships and Mobile Suits also use this Trope when they are facing off against Cybertronians in the past in the Expansion Wars.]]
* MadScientist: Doctor Arkeville, which plays this trope painfully straight. (no pun intended)
* MartyrWithoutACause: Optimus Prime, which is the same as the other continuities, is willing to sacrifice himself to save lives.
** Averted with Vector Prime and [[spoiler: Divine the Seraphim.]]
* {{Masquerade}}: Averted, as the Transformers have come out openly in this story and announced their existence to the United Nations.
** Although at first it covered up, but then the various events that involved the Transformers made it hard to do so.
* MeaningfulName: Another given, as most of the names given to Cybertronians describe something about themselves, their personalities or their abilities.
* TheMedic: Red Alert, Ratchet, The Protectobots for the Autobot Side. With [[spoiler: the company of Keys Tech Corporation occasionally pitching in.]] Scalpel, Arkeville, Shockwave for the Decepticon side. Of course, you will fine the Autobot medics to be more nice to their patients than the Decepticon ones.
* MegaCorp: Keys Tech Corporation [[spoiler: , which is the founded by Victor Keys after the Arkeville incident,]] is a multi-facet corporation with the headquarters located right beside Autobot City in Colorado. It handles projects from the government including medicine, technology, biology, neuroscience, transportation, commercial product development, telecommunications, and even some contracts with DOD and NASA. The Autobots have been quite helpful in helping the Corporation with their tasks and assignments, expecially Wheeljack and Perceptor with their fellow secientists.
** The Corporation also has its own Internal Security and Para-military forces to protect its installations, and it controls the majority of the stock market shares of many economic sectors around the globe.
* MemeticBadAss: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] Many of the main Decepticons and Humanicons, as well as the Autobots and their allies.
** [[spoiler: The Seraphims and the Ancient Cybertronians play this Trope quite straight.]]
** Optimus and Megatron are the king and emperor respectively of this Trope.
** Applies to certain Humans as well, such as Lennox and Epps of NEST.
* MidSeasonUpgrade: Definitely will happen in this story, for a lot of the main Transformers characters of both factions. [[spoiler: The Seraphims will also get some too.]]
* MindControl or maybe MoreThanMindControl: The Fallen does this to Taiya, and it '''is''' NightmareFuel on crack.
* MoreDakka: The Transformers, especially the more powerful ones, are living embodiments of this Trope after they have upgraded to their more powerful forms. Ironhide carried enough weapons to make him look like a OneManArmy. Onslaught has so many guns that he could put an armory to shame. Metroplex, Omega Supreme, Trypticon and Gigatron can fire enough weapons to play this Trope to Death. [[spoiler: The Seraphims' spaceships and Mobile Suits also applies this Trope as well, but they are more of a pulse, beam and railgun weaponry.]]
* MusicForCourage: Some for Cassandra and Vera.
* MythologyGag: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] Given that this is a Transformers story based on the Comic and Cartoon series, this Trope is a given.
* [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Names To Distrust]]: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] The Autobot names often are trustworthy, but the Decepticon names aren't.
* NameTron: Megatron/Cybertron/Galvatron/Gigatron as seen from their names.
* NeverSayDie: The major characters will fight to their last breath to achieve the universe they want to live in.
* NighInvulnerability: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] The Heralds of Unicron, the death bringer's personal QuirkyMinibossSquad. The same applies for Primus's own 13 Original Transformers, especially Vector Prime.
* NightOfTheLivingMooks: [[QuirkyMinibossSquad The Heralds of Unicron]] are capable of summoning large armies of undead minions to do their dirty work for them, or help them in battle. Played straight with the Fallen and his disciple named [[spoiler: Xanatos.]]
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: We've got the robots (LOLZ), we've got the zombies (The minions of Unicron), pirates not yet...but a suspicious lack of ninja, save Drift, Blurr, Bludgeon, Prowl and Jazz.
* NonLethalWarfare: The Creators avoid killing characters unless necessary, but many mooks and troopers from many sides died like flies.
* NukeEm: Happens when [[spoiler: the Humans found out that conventional weaponry can't harm the fallen's minions and his QuirkyMinibossSquad. Also used against Unicron in the final battle.]]
* ObliviousAdoption: Marta, who is actually the lovechild of [[spoiler: Taka and Mark Mc Alister]] fits this Trope.
* OfCorsetsSexy: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] Blair and Loren's clothing most of the time. A little for Mikaela and Zoe.
* OldSchoolDogfight: The Autobot and Decepticon Seekers are fond of this at times, as well as the human pilots in their jet fighters.
* TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness: [[spoiler: The matrix is essentially holding the sparks of the primes who sacrificed themselves to prevent the Fallen from dooming other worlds of life by using the Solar Harvester. It also holds their wisdom and energy too. The Fragment of Fifteen, a ball of energy given to Divine in the prequel, is also this as it has fragments of power from the High Council Seraphims themselves.]]
* OmnicidalManiac: [[PlayingWithATrope Played With.]] Megatron and some of the Decepticons won't shy away from destruction, but [[EldritchAbomination Unicron]] wants to wipe out all life from existence.
* OneSteveLimit / NamestheSame: The creators also tend to avoid giving two characters the same name as much as possible.
* OriginalCharacter: A lot appears in this Fan Fiction. We have the Humanicons, The Mc Alister family, the Transformers OriginalCharacter(s), the Fallen's disciple [[spoiler: Xanatos]], and a new enigmatic race named [[spoiler: The Seraphims.]]
* PhlebotinumMuncher: The Transformers when they are consuming Energon.
* PraetorianGuard: [[spoiler: The Seraphim Elite Guards for the Seraphims play this Trope straight.]] The Senate Guards for the Primes also count as this too.
** The Wreckers and the Harbingers for Optimus Prime.
** The Mayhem Attack Squad for Megatron.
* PersonofMassDestruction: This Fan Fiction has several examples.
** The Fantastic Vector Prime who travels through Time and Space fighting the Dark Minions of the Fallen.
** The heroic Optimus Prime tends to use his ion blaster or energon swords to disable or damage his enemies, and was able to take on many Eradicons and win.
** The tyrannical Megatron commonly use the usual strategy of "Shoot it with my big gun or cut it with my mace", and took on Sentinel Prime and an army of Autobots and won.
** We have also got [[EldritchAbomination Unicron]] who eats planets...who is damn dangerous. '''MAJOR understatement'''
** The gentler Transformers, such as Metroplex and Omega Supreme, if sufficiently provoked.
** [[spoiler: Divine the Seraphim is one PersonofMassDestruction. He was famous for taking on Sunstorm and the seekers and won, not to mention holding out against Xanatos and the Fallen with Vector Prime.]]
** [[PhysicalGod Primus]]...when he's pissed off at [[EldritchAbomination Unicron.]]
* PhysicalGod: Primus and Unicron, [[CaptainObvious of course.]]
* PlanetEater: Unicron as always, as seen from other continuities, also applies to this Fan Fiction.
* PistolPose: Any Transformer or human who has a pistol will have this Trope incorporated.
* PointDefenseless: Sometimes played straight, at other times averted. Happens during many space battles, and the shooting in those scenes look like the mooks and troopers of both Decepticons and Autobot faction's gunnery training came from the ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy.
* PoweredArmor: The various armour suits reverse engineered from cybertronian technology for combat counts as this. Optimus's Powerload combat combination mode also counts.
* PowerFist: A number of Transformers and human's powered armour have these, and they can dish out a lot of damage.
* PreMortemOneLiner: "Rest in specks of space dust scattered to the ends of the Universe." Delivered by [[spoiler: Divine after he opened fire on the Nemesis itself in the prequel.]]
* PrivateMilitaryContractors: Employed by the Humans to keep security in High-Priority Areas.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: [[spoiler: Pretty much describes what Divine is, back on Sera Prime in the prequel.]] The Decepticons on a whole counts as this too.
* PunyHumans: Averted in this story as HumansAreSpecial due to their personalities and their BadAss moments.
* QuirkyMinibossSquad: Several Examples in this Fan Fiction:
** Primus has the 13 Original Transformers. (Including Vector Prime and the Fallen)
** [[EldritchAbomination Unicron]] has his own, comprised of [[spoiler: The Fallen, Xanatos, Jahixus, Straxus, Grindcore, Nemesis Prime and Galvatron.]]
** Optimus Prime has his own inner circle of sub-commanders that answer to him, and they are BadAss too. Those are Ironhide, Ratchet, Bumblebee, Springer, Kup, Advocator, [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Overload_%28Armada%29 Powerload]], Vector Prime.
** Megatron has Razorclaw, Onslaught, Soundwave, Starscream, Shockwave, Scrapper, Blackout, Snaptrap as his own personal Squad.
** [[spoiler: The Seraphims have their Council of Fifteen who were powerful warriors, and Divine's personal Gold Team.]]
* RedOniBlueOni: Megatron and Optimus. Judging from their optics alone, not to mention personalities.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: The First Thirteen have been created by Primus since the dawn of time. Vector Prime is still looking good after so many millions of years. [[spoiler: Divine is actually millions of years old, but he looks young too.]]
* RealRobot: The various PoweredArmour reverse-engineered by the Humans from Cybertronian Technology counts.
* RescuedfromtheScrappyHeap: The Creators tend to do this to characters who do not have enough moments in the story. But they are careful to avoid this trope as much as possible.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: The mini-cons are these. Give them a hug!
* RobotBuddy: The Humanicons and their Decepticon partners, and the Autobots with their Alliance members.
* {{Roboteching}}: The Seekers and Jetfire, as well as Skyfire, tend to do this at times during battle. [[spoiler: The Seraphims too in their Mobile Suits.]]
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Bound to happen if Taiya, in [[spoiler: Fallen form]] snaps. [[spoiler: She did, and many things were broken. Don't ask what.]]
* RuleOfCool: Pretty much describes this Fan Fiction...and the Transformers too.
* RunningGag: Mostly focusing on the various humourous moments among the Transformers and Humans.
* ScheduleSlip: RealLife issues prevented the continuation of this Fan Fiction, but updates are trickling in as the days go along.
* SexyDiscretionShot: Played straight with Victor and Zoe in their love moment. [[spoiler: Zoe gets deeply kissed by Victor (finally aware that she was Xeria's manifestation and he was Divine in human form), and she asks him to give her the "strength to protect and the courage to be with him till the end.", before burying herself into his arms. The flowers outside Zoe's home bloomed during their heart-to-heart sharing session.]]
** Another example is subtle cues and gestures from the story about the major couples, such as "being in their room" as an example.
* ShowSomeLeg: Happens from time to time with the Humanicons.
* [[ShowWithinAShow Movie Within A Show]]: The Dark Lord Jadow movie, which is actually one of the creator's OriginalCharacter.
* ShrugOfGod: Happens to the creators sometimes among themselves, when trying to explain some details about the Transformers or trying to add some additional storyline content.
* ShutUpKiss: Happens between some of the major couples of Transformers Alter Verse.
* ShoutOut: Too many to count. There will be a list, a pretty LONG list...will need a page on its own.
* SigilSpam: The Autobots and Decepticons tend to plaster their faction symbols everywhere.
* SingleStrokeBattle: [[spoiler: Taiya versus the Fallen. The heroes and heroines versus the Fallen's QuirkyMinibossSquad. Do the math.]]
* SinisterSurveillance: Soundwave is the master of this. Justified though, because he's the Decepticon's intelligence officer.
* SlapSlapKiss: Some of the major couples are these.
* SleepModeSize: [[spoiler: Divine when he's in human form. His mature form is a fifty-feet tall powerful-looking muscular angelic Seraphim that was as large as Optimus Prime himself.]] He also gains to use all of his powers to the fullest in Seraphim form. In his SleepModeSize, he's actually [[spoiler: a human boy known as Victor Keys who was respected and well-liked by his various allies, even to winning the love of Zoe.]]
* SmugSnake: Melvin the {{Jerkass}} is this. Applies to some of the female Humanicons, and Decepticons too.
* SpaceOpera: Played with. CombiningMecha? Check. Spaceships? Check. Epic final space battles? Check. Lots of heroes and villains? Check. Awe-inspiring places? Check. Insanely gorgeous female characters? ''Definitely'' check. Love stories? '''''BIG CHECK'''''.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Happens with some of the characters' names. Especially the Autobots and Decepticons, and sometimes with the humans and [[spoiler: the Seraphims.]]
* {{Stripperific}}: Some examples in this Fan Fiction:
** Blair's clothing most of the time plays this Trope straight.
** So does Loren and Devin in some cases. (slyer's Girlfriend)
** A few of Zoe's clothings, but she's far more modest as she never wore them much.
** [[spoiler: Some of the female Seraphims priestesses and training warriors are like this, but covers up for modesty purposes.]]
* SubspaceAnsible: Instantaneous galaxy-wide communication and Travel is made possible by Pulsewave Technology, and Transwarp space bridges by the Cybertronians. [[spoiler: The Seraphims have their own, named Lightcomm Technology and Wrapspace for their spaceships.]]
* SuckingInLines: This happens whenever a {{BFG}} or a WaveMotionGun is about to be fired.
* SuperMode: Each of the main characters has one.(or more if the plot requires) Will (and '''MUST''' in some cases) be used when during the Final Battle.
* SuperReflexes: The Transformers of both factions, especially the veterans, are the masters of this Trope. [[spoiler: Demostrated beautifully by the Seraphims in battle.]]
* TankGoodness: A few Transformers have tanks for alternate modes. A bunch of Decepticons including Brawl and [[spoiler: Cannonblower]] are good examples.
* TenMinuteRetirement: [[spoiler: Sometime during the Expansion Wars, Divine took some time off to contemplate on what he has done after fighting some battles on an uncharted planet he found, and met Alpha Trion who gave him some wisdom. Then he gets back to action later.]]
* ThemeMusicPowerUp: Omnipresent. Whenever an awesome music starts playing, expect Awesomeness to come in Gratuitous loads.
** Whenever a major character is about to kick some serious butt or aft, expect their theme song to be played.
** Whenever a '''Franchise/{{Transformers}}''' song is played, expect the bots or cons or both to kick ass in large amounts.
** The one that takes the cake is the main Transformers Theme, which is recommended for listening to when reading the [[spoiler: Final Battle.]]
* TemptingFate: There are some scenes in the chapters that are practically tempting fate. Most of the main characters try to avoid this as much as possible, but the same cannot be said for the villians.
* ThatCameOutWrong: The Cybertronians tend to use some of their own terms that may refer to some...human anatomy in a weird sense.
** Mostly played for laughs on the human characters, such as the Humanicons or Members of the Autobot Alliance in the Fan Fiction.
* TheBeautifulElite: [[spoiler:The Seraphims play this Trope to large amounts of exaggeration, especially with their royalty castes.]]
** [[spoiler: For a specific reference, please take a look at the Seraphims page in the Character Sheet.]]
* TheStarscream: The TropeNamer appears. Unsurprisingly, Starscream '''IS ONE.''' Ramjet is one in the past, but has given up on it.
* TheSoulless: With the exception of The Fallen, Nemesis Prime, [[spoiler: Xanatos]], none of the Heralds have sparks. Galvatron is also an exception. The other minions fits this Trope perfectly.
* TimeDissonance: The modern Transformers are a few million years old, and the Veterans are even older. The 13 original Transformers have been existing since their creation by Primus, which is pretty old. [[spoiler: This applies to the Seraphims as well.]]
** The Transformers Alter Verse's backstory has Optimus and Megatron chasing each other around the galaxy searching for the Allspark for literally millions of years before the fateful crash-landing on Earth.
* TimeSkip: Happens between chapters, such as a story that takes place three months after the events of Rescue Prez.
* TimeTravel: Vector Prime, one of th 13 Original Transformers, can pull this off when necessary.
* TheTease: '''Blair, DEAR GOD BLAIR''', especially with Stephen Dalton. Just read what happens to them.
* TheThingThatGoesDoink: A medium-sized one [[spoiler: in the gardens of the Sun clan.]]
* TheWarSequence: Happens whenever in major big battles.
* TheWorfEffect: Happens to the Villans sometimes...the mooks especially.
* TranslationConvention: Most of the language in the prequel is written in cybertronian and [[spoiler: Seraphim language]], but has been translated by the creators to facilitate better reading. Applies to the Fan Fiction as well.
* TransformingMecha: '''DO I REALLY NEED TO EXPLAIN?''' [beat]
* TruceZone: Maccadam's Old Oil House, during the Great War on Cybertron.
* UnexplainedRecovery: Taiya Dalton, and many of the Humanicons. [[spoiler: But Taiya mostly, as she was the Fallen of the Earth. She has been tortured mentally and physically by the Fallen, and she has to fight Unicron alone at first.]]
** And many of the other characters of many factions.
* UnstoppableRage: '''Bonecrusher.''' Enough said. Candidates competiting for this title are Sunstorm, Brawn and Demolisher.
* UnusualEuphemism: Lots of them, for the official list, please read the following link. [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Anatomic_euphemism Anatomic euphemism for Transformers.]]
* VerbalTic: Applies to Humanicons sometimes.
* VictoriasSecretCompartment: Tends to come in handy for the Humanicons when they need to hide something important. Unsurprisingly, the female members of the Autobot Alliance do those too.
* WaveMotionGun: The spaceships of the Cybertronians, the Nebulans and the [[spoiler: Seraphims]] have these as their main weapons.
** [[spoiler: Divine's double-barreled Pulse Railgun Rifle in Final form is one, and Supreme Omega Prime also has one Positron Rifle.]]
* WhamEpisode: Bound to happen. A good example is '''Ascension of Fallen Eclipse.'''
* WhoWantsToLiveForever: Although a few of the Transformers feels this way, but most of them are pleased with their state of semi-immortality. [[spoiler: The Seraphims have to live with it, as most of them are immortal or at the very least semi-immortal.]]
* WorldOfBadass: Cybertron itself. Literally, as it is the god Primus in disguise. [[spoiler: Sera Prime, the homeworld of the Seraphims, Primus's peacekeepers of the Universe.]]
* XMeetsY: It's many, many Transformers, anime, cartoon, movies and games meet ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}''! (duh!).
* YourDaysAreNumbered: [[spoiler: Taiya Dalton., and her time is running out fast...]]
* YouShallNotPass: Bound to show up in this story many, many times. One good example is the Autobots and Decepticons facing off against the armies of Fallen minions.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Applies to some of the Humanicons. Loren is a good example.
