* DorkAge: With the bright neon colors, TotallyRadical commercials, and the lack of a proper cartoon for it, G2 is seen as this by many within the fandom.
* HilariousInHindsight: The series was cancelled due to "low sales." Those sales would amount to a blockbuster hit by today's standards.
* SoBadItsGood: The 1994 toy commercials with their rap songs. Especially the Aerialbots and Combaticons one. A-hem: The Aerialbots are taking their shots!/ Silverbolt's blasting COMBATICONS!/ They can all ch-ch-change/ To be re-arranged/ [[CombiningMecha To form a super robot, SUPERION!]]/ The Combaticons are WARRING!/ Onslaught is ROARING!/ He is one metamorphing DUDICUS!/ They all combine/ And kick Superion's behind/ As the big, bad, battling BRUTICUS!
* UnfortunateImplications: The new Transformers created by budding are inherently immoral, cause their method of creation isn't approved by Primus. That's like saying a baby grown in a test tube is unnatural and therefore subhuman.
