** Megatron's whole plan really. If he destroyed the ''Ark'' (something he was ''livid'' about Tarantulas doing before), he'd have been wiped out due to destroying the Decepticons as well.

** Returning to Cybertron with Megatron strapped to the outside of the ship. Sure it's humilating for him, but it makes it really hard to keep your prisoner secure. [[WesternAnimation/BeastMachines If he gets loose mid flight, there's not going to be a whole lot anyone can do about it.]]

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Originally the ''Ark'' was going to be launched and it would destroy the coning tower on the ''Nemesis'' before it itself was to crash again in what would become Oregon as a way to explain the many uses of ArtisticLicenceGeography in the series. The three Coneheads (Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet) would also have been launched possibly explaining their absence from Season 1 of the original show.


** The tractor beam of the ''Nemesis'' [[WesternAnimation/TheTransformers exposes the rear boosters and hull of the ''Ark'']]. Which still begs the question of how no one noticed the ''Ark'' jutting out of the mountain for four million years.

!!Tropes featured:

* AGodAmI: Megatron dives right into this once he has the ''Nemesis''.
* AbsurdlySharpBlade: The ''Nemesis'' has a collection of drills and rotating blades that can reduce mountain rock to pebbles.
* TheAtoner: Since he served Megatron, Dinobot II (now with the personality of the original) chooses to stay behind on the ''Nemesis'' as it crashes.
* AwesomeButImpractical:
** The main fusion cannon on the ''Nemesis''. It's powerful enough to destroy Vok technology but needs to be at 100% charge to fire.
** The coning tower as well. Sure it gives a great view but it's also a big target for enemies.
* BeamOWar: Tigerhawk vs the ''Nemesis''' fusion cannon. The ''Nemesis'' wins.
* BerserkButton: If you value your life, ''don't'' mention "honour" around Megatron.
* {{BFG}}: The fusion cannon aboard the ''Nemesis''.
* ContinuityNod:

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Whoever had the bright idea to tie Megatron on the ''outside'' of the shuttle [[WesternAnimation/BeastMachines really didn't do Cybertron any favours.]]
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Had Megatron not opened fire on the caveman settlement, the ''Nemesis'' would have had the power to destroy the ''Ark'' without needing to recharge. Not only did the blast fail to kill the caveman (who hid in a rock formation) it killed Inferno and Quickstrike.
* NoKillLikeOverkill: Yes, even by the standards of a Decepticon capital ship the ''Nemesis'' is serious overkill in the amount of weapons it has.
* OhCrap: Quickstrike when the ''Nemesis'' is about to fire on the valley.
* PurpleIsPowerful: The ''Nemesis'' gives off this vibe.
* RammingAlwaysWorks: Rhinox rams the Autobot shuttle right through the coning tower of the ''Nemesis'' taking the ship down.
* RevengeBeforeReason: Megatron firing on the protohuman settlement.
* ShoutOut:
** Megatron's quotations from the Covenant of Primus are from the Literature/TheBible and ''Film/PulpFiction''.
** The protohuman celebration looks very similar to the ending of ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''.
* StableTimeLoop: Blackarchnia notes that the history tracks never mentioned the Autobot shuttle. As Rhinox notes, history is still being made and the shuttle won't be around in 1984 because the Maximals are going to use it.
* TakesOneToKillOne: The Maximals eventually decide to use the ''Ark'' to fight the ''Nemesis''. See DidntThinkThisThrough above.
* TractorBeam: The ''Nemesis'' has a monumentally powerful one.
