Funny: Transformers Animated
  • Optimus Prime asks Sari how humans make "these new, smaller organics" (i.e. babies). His reaction to what he hears is priceless.
  • "I am Wreck-Gar! I dare to be stupid!"
  • Newly immortal Starscream's death montage.
  • Just about any scene with Blitzwing and Lugnut in it, but especially their first episode.
    Blitzwing: "You stepped in something!" *faceswap* "But with a few dancing lessons, you'll soon be as light on your servos as me, cha, cha, cha!"
    • There was a scene before that as well. Never has "The Itsy Bitsy Spider" been this funny.
    • "I will pound you into sheet metal!" *faceswap* "Wait, we've already got some!"
    • Don't forget Lugnut's unique devotion. It even annoys Megatron himself:
      Lugnut: "I WILL NOT HIDE! I WILL STAND PROUDLY AND SHOUT MEGATRON'S NAME TO THE HEAVENS!"
      Megatron: "Oh, for spark's sake..."
  • "Ohhh, you're scared of me! BOOGABOOGA!" "AHH!" The best part is probably Jazz's terrified pose.
  • "You interrupted my SPEEEEEEEEEEEEECH!"
  • The entirety of "Return of the Headmaster"'s Sentinel-schadenfreude.
    Sentinel [as Optimus fights the Headmaster, who has stolen Sentinel's body]: You're enjoying this, aren't you, Optimus?
    Optimus: [smirks while continuing to pound the Headmaster, which Sentinel can feel]
    • In the Allspark Almanac databook, a self-serving diary entry from Sentinel Prime makes this even better. "Let me say that again. Optimus. Ripped. My. Arm. Off."
    • From earlier in that episode, Optimus's reaction to seeing Sentinel Prime as just a head is gold. Hearing Optimus Prime of all bots laugh is just a great moment.
    • Also, "You kicked me! On purpose!"
  • At the end of the Season 2 finale, Megatron in stasis cuffs and Starscream's detached head are stuck somewhere in space, unable to do anything but bicker:
    Megatron: Stop staring at me.
    Starscream: No. You stop staring at me!
    Megatron: Do you think I actually want to spend the rest of eternity gazing at your unsightly visage?
    Starscream: Trust me: your visage is no picnic either. And your face is ugly too!
    Megatron: Oh, someone just take me offline now...
    Starscream: What do you think I've been trying to do for the last four million stellar cycles?!?! AHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! It's funny, really, when you think about it. Tragic, but funny! AHAHAHAHAHA!
    Megatron: ...oh, shut up.
  • This:
    [Megatron and Blitzwing appear before him]
    Starscream: I stand corrected.
    Megatron: Starscream!
    Starscream: Sorry, you must have me confused with some other Harrier jet!
  • Megatron and Starscream's battle of wills continues in the Season 3 premiere "TransWarped", where Starscream gets so fed up that he starts ranting about how Megatron got them into this mess: "Are you seeing a pattern here? THIS! IS! ALL! YOUR! FAUUUULLLLTTTTT!"
  • The 2008 Botcon script reading "Bee in the City" is the funniest thing this troper has ever seen/heard, full of shout-outs and fourth wall breaks aplenty. Watch it here.
    Joe (Megatron): Please...who do I look like, Scott McNeil?
    • The entire segment where Shockwave explains what happens when they face a cosmic-powered supervillain, including what the secondary characters do and Optimus Prime's reaction to it.
      Optimus Prime: Nnnnnno, we won't be doing that.
      • Vangelus' entire performance as the "morally ambiguous" Transtech Shockwave is brilliant.
  • Megatron giving Lugnut orders in "Garbage In, Garbage Out". Seeing how this is Lugnut....
    Lugnut: STASIS LOCK ITSELF COULD NOT DETER ME FROM YOUR GRAND, AND GLORIOUS PLAN, OH WISE AND NOBLE MEGATRON!
    Megatron: Just...go....
    • And earlier, Sari trying to teach Ratchet some manners:
      Ratchet: Will you get in already!?
      Sari: Ah, ah, ah, what's the magic word...
      Ratchet: NOW!
    • During the final confrontation with Wreck-Gar:
      Ratchet: You glitch-head! You're gonna destroy the whole city! You wouldn't dare do something that stupid!
      Wreck-Gar: I am Wreck-Gar! I dare to be stupid! I will destroy the whole city!
      Ratchet: All right, you've forced me to make the ultimate sacrifice; to do the one thing that requires more courage than anything I've ever had to do in my entire Autobot career! I... apologize.
      Wreck-Gar: Come again?
  • After Ratchet saves Bumblebee.
    Prowl: I'll stay with Bumblebee.
    Ratchet: Try to keep him quiet.
    Prowl: You do realize this is Bumblebee.
    Ratchet: Oh yeah.
  • Optimus Prime, behind you!
  • Prowl's attempt at Fake Static at the start of "A Fistful of Energon." Jeff Bennett just nails it in making it so awkwardly out-of-place for Prowl, it's adorkable.
    Ratchet: Personally, I've always found Bumblebee's fake static to be a lot more convincing.
  • In the first episode, Prowl's reaction to Optimus' 'cog-in-the-Autobot-machine' speech.
    Prowl: *Face Palm* Not this speech again...
  • The rivalry between Lugnut and Shockwave during "Endgame". Special mention goes to near the start of Part 1, when after some jibing from Starscream, Lugnut moves in front of Megatron punting Shockwave offscreen in the progess.
    Starscream: Y'see, now [Megatron] even likes Blitzwing better than you. Hmm... *Shockwave meanwhile has walked back onscreen*
    Lugnut: *Slaps Shockwave back offscreen* NO! I am the most faithful!
  • In "Megatron Rising Pt. 2," Blitzwing is facing off the Autobots and has the upper hand. Prowl is Genre Savvy enough to have Bumblebee employ his greatest weapon (his obnoxious personality) and continually talk smack to Blitzwing, who is strafing the Autobots in his jet fighter mode. This upsets Blitzwing, and causes him to switch to his Angry 'Hothead' persona and attack them with his even more heavily armed tank mode. Blitzwing has Personality Powers, but is also an Involuntary Shapeshifter, and his transformations happen about as quickly as his personality changes. It's only when he realizes that he hadn't landed first that he learns Gravity Is a Harsh Mistress.
  • Ratchet's mouth hangng open when Sari repairs Prowl in the second episode.
  • All of Blitzwing in "Human Error". Even a horrible injury wont faze him for long.
    Blitzwing: Oh, look! I have a hole in my rocket!"
