* HeavySleeper: He's been asleep for a long time and hasn't been woken up by all the cacophonous wars and destruction that happened on his body's surface. Quintessa then decided now was the perfect time to attack Unicron as he slept by engulfing him with Cybertron's remains and draining his life force, but in the process of moving Cybertron to Earth's orbit, she ''woke him up''.


* GreaterScopeVillain: For the entire film franchise. Unicron is Earth, much like in ''Transformers: Prime'', and is Sir Edmund Burton's stated reason why the Cybertronians are attracted to Earth; this would explain the endeavors of the Fallen, as well as those of Sentinel Prime.

* AdaptationalBadass: [[spoiler:Most Unicrons "merely" eat planets and have enough power to destroy entire civilizations. However, unless it's not connected to his body and doesn't go deep enough, this one also has a star harvester built into him, designed to drain stars and turn them to energy. This version of Unicron could potentially destroy entire star systems before any planet in them could even notice it, ''and'' heal himself by doing so.]]

* SatanicArchetype: The prophecy calls her "the Mad Goddess" and the Knights know her as "The Great Deceiver".
* UnreliableNarrator: She claims to be "the Prime of life" and the creator of the transformers, yet is one herself. The previous film shows an organic hand gathering the materials to build Transformers, and her design doesn't match the Primes seen in ROTF. [[spoiler: Her plan to revitalize Cybertron using Unicron's energy also contradicts the creator's implied plan in the previous film; wipe out all transformers and start from scratch.]] Not to mention, the knights call her "The Great Deceiver" for a reason.

** BigBadDuumvirate: [[spoiler: The trailers imply that Quintessa and Megatron work separately.

* NotSoDifferent: It's subtle, but for all he claims the Autobots, Decepticons and their war are beneath him, there's quite a few shown similarities to Megatron in the first film during his battle with Prime - from his furious hatred of humans to a shot where he grips a crippled Prime's face as he rants, which is near-identical to the scene in ''Transformers'' where Megatron claims humans don't deserve to live.
