* [[EvilVsEvil The Decepticons and Constructicons face off]], with Arcee caught in the middle. For a moment it looks like she'll help her nominal allies, the Constructicons - then [[RealityEnsues remembers the whole mess has nothing to do with her]] and leaves them to beat each other senseless.

* In the middle of a raging battle between [[EvilVsEvil the Decepticons and Devastator]], the giant seizes Galvatron and lobs him over the horizon. One would expect Galvatron to rant and rage at the indignity; instead, once he's managed to stop himself falling, [[SeenItAll he merely comments that Devastator has a hell of a throwing arm]] and speeds back to the battle.

to:

* Thundercracker manages to make an attempt at ''his own assassination'' into a darkly hilarious event by getting so stuck in his writer mentality that he keeps thinking of one-liners to use as he's clubbing one assailant in the face with the other's legs.

Added DiffLines:

!!Optimus Prime #20
* Jetfire comes across the result of Arcee versus the Maximals. In the background, it's possible to see a still alive Heinrad and Stampy running for their lives (Heinrad's even carrying his accessories). In fact, the two of them are the ''only'' survivors, come to think of it.

!!Optimus Prime #21
* Aileron's takeaway of [[spoiler:Shockwave]] holding Jetfire at gunpoint and demanding his aid:
-->'''Aileron:''' Jetfire - don't ''trust'' him. I don't think he's ''trustworthy''.
-->'''Jetfire:''' I ''know'' that, Aileron. That's what my indignant tone of voice was meant to ''signify''.

* The solicits alone let the readers know what they're in for: "Starscream: The Movie", written by... ''Thundercracker''. Uh-oh.
** How the solicits describe the situation to begin with:
-->''Will Thundercracker stand by his principles or... well, no. He makes the movie.''


--> '''Blitzwing:''' —whatever, we'll have to '''blast''' you to the '''Afterspark'''!"

--> '''Blitzwing:''' —whatever, we'll have to '''blast''' you to the '''Afterspark'''!"

* This golden exchange between Blitzwing and Brawl:

--> '''Brawl:''' States!
--> '''Blitzwing:''' —whatever, we'll have to '''blast''' you to the '''Afterspark'''!"

* Admittedly somewhat BlackHumour, but in the flashback Soundwave convinces the EDC that Galvatron taking charge [[BlatantLies has changed the Decepticons from a warlike force to one wanting peace]] - after Galvatron has spent the majority of the meeting having to be stopped by Soundwave from [[ObviouslyEvil insulting them and threatening to annihilate them]]. Even more entertaining is the fact that Galvy [[TeethClenchedTeamwork could not POSSIBLY look more disgusted]] as Soundwave paints him as a 'former of peace.



* After having the Mind Bomb used on them after a battle with the Autobots gets out of hand, a very pissed off Galvatron pays a courtesy call to the EDC base - where he proves Earth geography isn't his strong point by threatening to kill not only everyone in the operator's home state of New Mexico, but the old Mexico too...

And [[UpToEleven the old Mexico, but the old Mexico too...
just to be sure]]. His grasp of Earth geography clearly equals his grasp of peace...



* A subtle one, but at one point the President of the United States points out that as head of one nation she can't speak for the entire world. Then a massive alien ship is detected approaching Earth, projected to land in the Alps, and Prime repectfully asks her permission to go deal with it - proving that, as the Alps are in Europe and the US has no authority over sovereign states there, Optimus either hasn't been listening to her, hasn't understood what she's saying, or just doesn't care.

* The ID panel gag continues, noting Arcee as "Not Sure About This Plan" as Victorion combines to face the incoming ship.
* Wreck-Gar is pretty much bang on his ''The Transformers: The Movie'' characterisation, talking entirely in TV slang throughout. Of special note is his [[MajorInjuryUnderreaction laughing off being reduced to a head]] after being blasted to bits by G.I. Joe.
* Thundercracker hanging out at the Sphinx, identifying it as "some old...cat thing."
** He's also got Transformers-sized sunglasses especially for the occasion.

* At one point Jimmy shows Spike a selfie of himself, Hunter and Verity (from the Infiltration miniseries) - along with Prowl, who has the most baffled look possible on his face.

* The ID panels are rather meta, painting Jazz as the "trying to be laid-back one" and Arcee as the "used to being angry one".
