Added DiffLines:

* HonorBeforeReason: While in a narrow fight with Lockdown, Optimus sees [[DudleyDorightStopsToHelp Cade in trouble and takes a moment to]] [[spoiler: kill Attinger to protect him]]. This gives Lockdown an opening which he uses to incapacitate Optimus, saying he shames all Cybertronians for that weakness. Cade in turn opens fire on Lockdown alongside Bumblebee, while Tessa and Jack help get back up to finish the fight. Optimus' final response, "Honor to the end."


Added DiffLines:

* PintSizedPowerhouse: Lockdown transforms from a relatively small Lamborghini into a slender robot that's still notably shorter than Optimus, but in part due to CombatPragmatism he ends up being one of the most difficult enemies Optimus has ever had to fight in the films, including such powerful warriors like Megatron and Sentinel Prime.

* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: Lockdown at the end courtesy of Optimus.

Added DiffLines:

* AllThereInTheManual: It's never remarked upon in the movie, but tie-in material establishes that, like his G1 counterpart, Drift is [[DefectorFromDecadence a former Decepticon.]]


* DemotedToExtra: Not a huge amount, but Bumblebee has reduced screentime because Sam isn't in this film. He's still a major character, and seems to bond a little with Shane, but has no more of a role than the other Autobots sans Optimus.

* RealityRetcon: The dinosaurs weren't wiped out by a meteor strike, it was an alien species [[spoiler:that also created the Transformers.]]


* RentAZilla: All of the Dinobots are pretty big. Scorn (the Spinosaurus) is the biggest of them all, being bigger than Grimlock. Just for scale, Grimlock, according to Bay, Grimlock is "150 feet long from tail to nostrils, 63.5 feet tall from the ground to the top of his horns, and weighs 850 tons". That's '''1,560,000''' lbs.

* HoldTheLine: Done a few times throughout the film, particularly in the last third of the film when the Autobots attempt to prevent the Decepticons, or rather, KIS Prototypes, from acquiring the Seed.

* {{Unobtanium}}: "Transformium", the KIS trademarked name given to "self regenerating molecular alloy" discovered in the first film that Transformers are composed of and a big reason why Attinger is hunting them down. Joyce wants it so [[spoiler:they can make an army of KSI built Transformers, using the raw matter from their bodies]]. The MacGuffin is a device called "The Seed," which would terraform an area on a small scale by converting local matter into Transformium, which would give Joyce more than enough material for their projects.

Added DiffLines:

* DevelopersForesight: [[SubvertedTrope Of a sort]]. The video game adaptation of Dark of the Moon establishes that that film takes place three years after Revenge of the Fallen, placing it in 2012. With this film taking place five years later, in 2017, and released two years before the next presidential election, itís the first movie in the series where the president isnít mentioned by name.


The movie has a tie-in game, ''Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark'', which serves as an IntercontinuityCrossover with the ''[[VideoGame/TransformersWarForCybertron War for Cybertron]]'' universe.

Added DiffLines:

* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Cade admits it was wrong of him to intend to sell Optimus out to Cemetery Wind for the reward money when Optimus calls out all of humanity (including Cade specifically) for making such horrible mistakes that cost the lives of multiple Autobots.
