* AwesomeArt: ''Zone'' has some of the best animation of any portion of G1, with particular praise being given to Dai Atlas's fight scenes.
* HarsherInHindsight: When the Decepticons attack Earth, Devastator attacks New York. No points on what buildings get destroyed 11 years later.
* HilariousInHindsight:
** Cain and Akira's HoYay relationship will be [[ComicBook/TheTransformersIDW revisited]]...but with robots!
** Devastator owning a [[ThisIsADrill big freaking drill]]? When did [[VideoGame/TransformersDevastation that happen]]?
* HoYay: Cain and Akira - on top of having highly effeminate designs, they blush when touching each other, the ending has them being surrounded by shoujo bubbles, and one prominent bit of art involves them skipping through a field of flowers and holding hands with a rainbow behind them.
