Awesome: Transformers Rescue Bots
Here there be spoilers!

  • The first time the team fought Trex. They may not be (combat grade) bots yet, but they're well on their way.
  • "Under Pressure" - Blades, without prompting and even against recommendation, flies headlong and blinded through a cloud of volcanic ash to get the water to save Cody, knowing full well the ash could gum up his rotors and drop him from the sky. He doesn't make a big deal out of it either (he wordlessly takes off once he understands the situation) and it isn't portrayed as the epic "overcoming his fear" moment most shows go for. He's just buckling down and getting the job done regardless of his terror. Rescue Bot, yes he is.
    • Also, Heatwave and Kade putting aside their differences to protect the one thing they have in common: Cody.
  • "Deep Trouble": Heatwave wrestles a sophisticated robotic shark-like submarine, and considers it a sport.
  • Chase gets a small one in "Christmas in July" when the Mayor tries using his radio to take credit for Cody's idea.
    Chase: Mayor or no mayor, he's not telling a lie over my public address system.
    • You tell 'em, Chase.
  • In "The Reign of Morocco", after Cody, Dani and Blades are caught spying on the good doctor. The Morbot chases them all the way back to the fire station, where the other Rescue Bots stand ready. A fight is averted when Dr. Morocco calls the Morbot back to the lab. Still, it was pretty awesome watching the bots ready for a fight. They may not be (warrior class) bots like Optimus Prime's team. But they're still Autobots at the core.
    • Not to mention the Morbot's analysis of the ever increasing threat level of the team. Loved it when it reached Heatwave, and went off the charts.
  • The Rescue Bots ripping apart the Morbot.
    "Morbot decommissioned."
  • Chase in "Rules and Regulations", mostly for refusing to follow Heatwave in disobeying the chiefs' orders, and faking a littering emergency to get the human half of the team to come help after losing contact with the other bots.
  • Bumblebee risking his own life to save Graham in "Bumblebee to the Rescue".
  • Chase protecting Chief Burns from the on coming Squilsh in "You've Been Squilshed", despite the danger to himself. Chase got swallowed up instead but the Chief was saved thanks to his selflessness.
  • In "Rescue Boy", Cody deflects falling debris with his hoverboard.
  • Optimus Prime and Bumblebee coming to the Rescue Bots rescue at the last second in "It's a Bot Time".
  • Just about all of the fight scenes in "Bot to the Future" were pretty awesome.
  • In "Sky Forest", the bots get their first chance to show off the new energize tools Boulder and the Doc built last episode.
  • Kade and Heatwave finally enjoy working together in "Tip of the Iceberg", because they get the chance to bully Doctor Morocco.
    Kade: (with obvious delight) Firebot, "assist" Doctor Morocco into his submarine.
    Heatwave: (totally in character for once) As commanded.
  • Heatwave gained a third alt form!
  • Bumblebee quick thinking of using the clothelines to save Dani from the Quicksand
