- Built with LEGO: In this case, some of the characters themselves are built with building bricks, as they are based on the Kre-O construction sets.
- Christmas Episode: "A Gift for Megatron"
- Gag Series: The shorts are mostly quick gags. Only the final two-parter had more of a good-versus-evil plot, and still was quite humorous, with the Decepticons stealing Energon to make a grated cheese sandwich.
- Go-Karting with Bowser: The Autobots and Decepticons engage in dance competitions and car races.
- Merchandise-Driven: And tis time developed with the toys themselves in stop-motion.
- Training Montage: Starscream has Megatron pass for one, but it's useless as he gets an accidental One-Hit KO from a passing Bumblebee.
- Running Gag: Megatron crumbling into pieces by either shot by Optimus Prime's puny blaster, rolled over by a round rock, or gets crashed by Bumblebee.
- Your Size May Vary: Depending on the episode, the characters may be represented by the larger sets or the smaller Kreons.
