** As for personalities Prime started off quite a bit less gentle and more impatient. Instead of calming telling the Autobots he's fine after being saved from a roaring river he shrugs them off impatiently and gets annoyed.

* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: After Megatron is rebuilt into Galvatron, he goes completely insane, though that isn't ''entirely'' due to his new body. As lampshaded by several characters, spending a year face-down in a pool of lava will do that to your sanity.

Added DiffLines:

** Free streaming service Tubi airs the entire series in its proper storyline order.


** Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp, Dirge, Thrust, and Ramjet all have dual turrets on their forearms in robot mode



** Megatron handily demonstrates this trope in "The Triple Takeover"; not everyone can take on a [[TheStarscream scheming lieutenant]], two Triple-changers, and a rampaging Combiner and come out on top, after all.

** After the HatePlague was cured in "The Return of Optimus Prime", the entire planet really should have been in shambles, with a bare minimum of tens of millions dead and practically everyone suffering from some kind of physical injury, many serious or permanent. Then there's the mental and emotional trauma of having gone through an event like that, which would further slow efforts to rebuild and get on with life (in the series' defense, only three more episodes were made, which only had one early scene set at Autobot City on Earth and all subsequent action taking place off-planet, so there could be plenty of devastation that we just didn't get around to seeing).

Added DiffLines:

* QuicksandSucks: In the episode "Countdown to Extinction", Megatron lures the Autobots into a large sandy area and they start sinking into it. He apparently believes they'll at the very least be pulled completely under the sand and thus trapped forever. Ironhide uses his liquid nitrogen to stabilize the sand (it certainly would have frozen any water mixed in with the sand) to allow the Autobots to escape.

''The Transformers'' was the first ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' cartoon, part of the ''Franchise/TransformersGeneration1'' franchise. It premiered in 1984. The writing and distribution of the series was handled by both Marvel Productions and Creator/SunbowEntertainment. Animation was done by Creator/ToeiAnimation and a few other (uncredited, just like its [[WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero sister series]]) studios, including Creator/{{AKOM}} in their first project, some [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Unknown_Generation_1_animation_studios unknown studios]] and several feeder studios[[note]]Creator/SeiYoung, Creator/DaiWon, Sam Young, Shin Won, Creator/TransArts, Creator/AnimeR, Lensa Film, Creator/AshiProductions, [[Creator/TMSEntertainment TMS]] [[http://user.tninet.se/~cio759u/teamwork/int4.htm Entertainment]], Creator/NakamuraProductions, and Studio OX (who handled illustration work during the series' initial Japanese release)[[/note]]. AKOM's animation was generally worse than Toei's.

Added DiffLines:

** "Ghost in the Machine" aired immediately prior to "Starscream's Ghost"
** "Aerial Assault", which showed the Combaticons, aired prior to "Starscream's Brigade", in which the Combaticons are created.


* Irony: Season 3 ran little fact files at the end of their episodes. One such recapped the situation post movie, ending by discussing how the Autobots had a new leader, Rodimus Prime. The irony comes from the fact that this particular clip was chosen for the end of episode 94; the first half of the 2 parter titled "The Return of Optimus Prime". The clip immediately follows the eponymous return.
