Rampage gets plenty with his affection for Transmutate... he's usually played as a omnicidal monster so it's easy to forget he's victim as well as villain... he didn't ask to be turned into a monster by the idiots on Starbase Omicron who, in a moment of unparalleled stupidity, decided to play "Let's experiment" with the Spark of the most treacherous Decepticon to ever exist (and even assuming he was a volunteer, he probably wasn't told "This experiment could turn you into a psychotic monster")... and with Transmutate he's got a kinship, another "Freak" who is hated and feared by both sides.
The humanization of Rampage in this episode is epitomized in the final line. As Rampage mourns Transmutate's death, Optimus makes a comment about dealing with him, but Silverbolt, by far the most noble Maximal and the polar opposite in seemingly every way of the sociopathic Rampage, replies:
Silverbolt: "No. Let him be. For the moment, we are brothers."
After which Rattrap gives a huge smile, knowing that his ally still has enough strength left to engage in one last good natured volley of insults.
And, notably, is the first to stand up and salute Dinobot's Spark.
Particularly nice is Optimus' Eulogy. Both in how it summed up Dinobot, and how prophetic it would be in the real world.
Optimus: He lived a warrior, and died a hero. Let his Spark join the Matrix, the greatest of Cybertron.
Dinobot would 10 years later be inducted into Hasbro's Transformers Hall of Fame, based on fan votes and edged out G1 Veterans like Soundwave and Grimlock.
At the end of "Gorilla Warfare":
Optimus: Bedside vigil, Dinobot? Not like you. Dinobot:It was my shift. Well, uh, it's good to have you back. Optimus: Back home or back to normal? Dinobot:(beat) Both. (smiles) (Optimus sees a new flower by his bed, as Dinobot exits)
Loved how when after Blackarachnia's experiments with the Transmetal Driver blows up in her face and she gets hurt. Literally everyone is more concerned with the fact that she was dumb enough to do that to herself without letting them help than with the fact that she wanted to make herself more powerful (and quite possibly more of a danger to them all). This is lampshaded by both herself and Optimus.
Blackarachnia: Oh, yeah. Sure. Like you were gonna help the Pred get more power.
Optimus: Maximal or Predacon, you're one of us! You should know that by now.
