* FiveBadBand: One that is affected dramatically by Megatron's status.
** BigBad: Starscream holds the title for most of the game, until Megatron's revival. Barricade holds command for Megatron's loyalists until his revival.
** TheDragon: Create-A-Con for Starscream and later Barricade, Barricade for Megatron.
** TheBrute: Brawl.
** TheEvilGenius: Blackout
** TagalongKid: The others consider Create-A-Con this, until he proves himself.


To coincide with the [[Film/{{Transformers}} 2007 film]], '''''VideoGame/TransformersTheGame''''' was released in two halves for the Nintendo DS. One follows the plot of the movie, focusing on the Autobots' attempts to reclaim the [=AllSpark=]. The other game focuses on the Decepticons, and a power struggle that evolves during their quest for the [=AllSpark=]. Woven in amongst both games is a study on how both sides are NotSoDifferent. The Decepticons are shown to have a code of honor, and have some sympathetic members in their ranks, while the Autobots make some rather gray moral choices. Both games also star a player-created character, who's a rookie to the cause, be he Autobot or Decepticon, as he learns what it means to be a member of either faction.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptedOut: While the Autobot roster all made it in, a few Decepticons had to be cut. Scorponok couldn't translate over to this game like he could in the console, and Bonecrusher was dropped like he was in every other video game tie in except the PSP. Frenzy isn't playable either, but he at least has a cameo in the intro cutscene.


* ArtificialStupidity: In the boss fight with Optimus you can win by having Megatron fly over the water (don't fly too far or you'll get a game over via out of bounds) and Optimus will chase after him and fall in, resulting in instant death.

** During the final phase of Starscream's boss fight, it's simple enough to leave the platform he's based on and take cover below, and he'll do nothing to stop you. You can mine for health and he'll just shoot at the ground. It's especially grievous as other boss fights like Jazz and Ironhide had special means to try and stop you from getting out of range.

** There's a few with the vehicles Create-A-Con can scan.
*** One utility vehicle has Construction colors
*** Two of the cars are patterned after Stunticons Wildrider and Breakdown.
*** The Attack Vehicon design is Movieverse Shockwave as rendered in the console version of this game.
** If one scores high enough in the weekly play throughs or got the download from target they could unlock Starscream in his G1 colors. It also comes with a laser using the drone sound-effects (which were the Null-Ray SFX from the G1 Cartoon).


-->'''Create-A-Bot''': You Decepticons just don't know when to quit! Time to show you that the bad guys always lose!
-->'''Create-A-Con''': You Autobots are no different from we Decepticons. We might be on different sides, but we're both playing the same game.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: The Decepticons plan to bomb the Hoover Dam to distract the Autobots long enough to steal the [=AllSpark=] from them unopposed.


* GenreSavvy: Barricade is the most GenreSavvy of the cast. He warns Create-A-Con away from fighting Optimus, knowing he'd end up dead. He also figures out pretty quickly that Create-A-Con only helped him clear Tranquility's police force on a suggestion from Starscream to earn his trust. He also recognizes that the Decepticon they're searching for is Megatron, since Starscream wouldn't waste resources searching for a Decepticon who didn't pose a threat to him.

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Starscream actually has 5% approval rating - the 5% coming from Create-A-Con - but soon the Decepticons go rogue from him, having hating him ever since he took over from Megatron.
* AdaptationalVillainy: This is easily the darkest incarnation of Starscream in the franchise. [[spoiler: Even if in the end he loses to Megatron]], he is an enemy that is ''not'' to be trifled with and is a threat that Megatron considers greater than Optimus [[spoiler: once he gets the [=AllSpark=].]]



* BigBad: Despite the perspective being flipped from the Autobots to the Decepticons, Optimus Prime does ''not'' hold this title. It's in fact Starscream whose machinations drive the plot.

Optimus comes off more as a BigBadWannabe, considering how Megatron only briefly regards him before [[spoiler: killing him and moving on to Starscream]].



* CoolOldGuy: Barricade ultimately ends up becoming this to Create-A-Con.



* DirtyCoward: It's this trope that fits Starscream to a tee, and it's why Barricade and the Decepticons want him out of power.



* DownerEnding: While it doesn't bother Megatron too much, he ends the game having lost the ==AllSpark== and [[spoiler: all of his troops, including Create-A-Con.]]

* GrayAndBlackMorality: The Decepticons loyal to Megatron genuinely believe he's their best hope at restoring their home and making the universe a better place. Starscream, the BigBad, is truly out for himself and doesn't care who gets in the way, and is ''far'' less sympathetic a character than the other Decepticons.



* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: Create-A-Con, Barricade, Blackout, Starscream, Jazz, Ironhide, Bumblebee, Create-A-Bot, and Optimus Prime.]]
* KillEmAll: Only ''three'' members of the games' cast are not explicitly seen being killed (see WhatHappenedToTheMouse).
* NothingIsScarier: We never get to see Brawl play with his new friends [[note]]captured human soldiers[[/note]], but considering how he gleefully asks if "hurts", we're probably best off not knowing.



* PsychopathicManchild: Brawl, who is basically a kid begging his parent to play with his toys... Which is really him begging Barricade to blow stuff up.
* SacrificialLion: [[spoiler: Barricade's death serving Megatron's cause proves to Create-A-Con what being a Decepticon really means.

Added DiffLines:

He'd only go after Megatron since he is the one Decepticon who truly poses a threat to him should he awaken.
