YMMV / Challenge of the GoBots

  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Crasher.
  • Evil Is Sexy - sort of. The only female GoBot with a distinctly feminine shape is Crasher, a Renegade.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff (The show really took off in France, and they imported Japan's Machine Robo: Revenge of Chronos to be its sequel, in spite of the blatant Art Shift)
  • So Bad, It's Good: Rocklords. Think Transformers, but instead becoming something cool like a car, a dinosaur, a plane, or a tank, they became rocks! You could choose between granite, quartz or shale amongst others!
    • The really stupid bit is in the movie - they transform and roll out and slowly clump away down the road like bricks turning under their own power.
  • So Okay, It's Average: The general opinion of the show amongst people who have actually watched it.
  • The Scrappy: Scooter. Oh gods, Scooter. He probably would have been more popular if they hadn't made Frank Welker give him the most annoying voice possible. Also Nick - who was basically Scooter's best buddy.
    • In addition, unlike his Transformers counterpart Bumblebee, Scooter was cowardly and his first response to most bad situations was to gulp in fear. Heck, in the very first episode Leader 1 declares that he wants to launch a full scale assault to finish the Renegades off once and for all, and Scooter's reaction is to gulp and ask if he isn't being too hasty! You could argue he recognises his lack of combat skill or ability, but Bumblebee wasn't afraid to risk his life if it would help the Autobots out, despite his diminutive size.
