to:

* {{Keet}}{{Keet}}: In an inversion of the dark, brooding, grumpy Ravage, he is loud, cheerful and enthusiastic.
* OddFriendships: He's [=BFFs=] with the Autobot Rosanna (which is why one of her songs is called "Look At Me Waving").



* SocialMediaBeforeReason: Not only does he give his location away on his Yatter account, he's prone to taking selfies and sending them to his enemies to let them know that he's sneaking up on them.

them. He's also hospitalized himself for driving while texting, much to Glit's irritation.




to:

* RedEyesTakeWarning: One of the first signs that he's not a trustworthy sort is his blue eyes turn red. [[spoiler:Then he skewers Skyfall.]]




to:

* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: He's so afraid of humans he deliberately jumped ship when Rodimus made his coup, rather than risk going to Earth.



* CombiningMecha: Can combine with that goon Thunderclash, nyeah!



* SecretPolice: He's the one in charge.

to:

* IllBoy: Nightbeat's got himself a serious case of cosmic rust, see? And he's particular about it, see!
* SecretPolice: He's the one in charge. Nyeah!
* UndyingLoyalty: One of the few 'bots who's genuinely ''loyal'' to Optimus. Nyeah, that's right! Too loyal! Got him kicked off the ''Ark'' by that punk Rodimus, see!



* CharacterDeath: Being Optimus' bodyguard was never going to be good for his long-term health, but during a coup, Optimus uses him as a living shield when Warpath takes a shot at him.




to:

* RoboFamily: He's brothers with Jazz, and Stepper.
* TheresNoKillLikeOverkill: His deathtrap for Megatron is impressively overdesigned. Not one, not two, but ''five'' different deathtraps put together.
-->'''Ricochet:''' Anything worth doing is worth overdoing.




to:

* TraumaButton: Rhyming in any form, after his encounter with Wheelie.



* ShoutOut: [[spoiler: To The Riddler.]]

* PantheraAwesome: He's a lion. Although the awesome is downplayed by his fondness for long, long, ''long'' naps.




to:

* WeaksauceWeakness: Aside from the laziness, he can easily be immobilized by a good scratch behind the ears.




to:

* YouHaveFailedMe: [[spoiler:Eventually, Prime gets fed up of his failures.]]



* {{Hulkspeak}}

to:

* {{Hulkspeak}}{{Hulkspeak}}: How he starts off as, and what he lapses into when he turns back into his T-Rex mode.


Added DiffLines:

* UnwantedAssistance: Takes to declaring himself Bat-Bot's sidekick, much as Bat-Bot wishes he hadn't.


Added DiffLines:

* MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch: Most other Quintessons prefer to hang back and not get involved in other species's affairs. Aquarius thinks this is a total drag, man.

Added DiffLines:

* AScarToRemember: He has a deep gash across his front from when he was ambushed by his former friends. Given that it should be easy to repair, he's clearly keeping it as a reminder. It also slashes through his old Autobot symbol, symbolising that he's no longer one of them.


-> In this universe, the Decepticons were created when young mathematician Megatron noticed in his [[{{Literature/Foundation}} numerical studies of social trends]] that civil war was almost certain. To that end, he created [[LaResistance a resistance movement]] behind the scenes, and when Optimus Prime conquered Cybertron the Decepticons were ready to rise up and free it once again.
