- Back from the Dead: Like so many Optimuses before and afterwards.
- Bad Boss: Megatron really doesn't like getting alternative proposals.Megatron: [to Silverbolt] Question my command again, and I will tear you limb from mismatched limb, Fuzor!
- Big Damn Heroes:
- Optimus makes his grand return just before the Predacons can finish off the team.
- Silverbolt knocks Megatron off the cliff before he can fire on Optimus.
- Blatant Lies: Blackarachnia destroys Megatron's back-up files but claims Dinobot did it back in Part 1. Megatron is suspicious but lets it go for now.
- Brick Joke: Rattrap really did take Optimus's room. Needless to say, Optimus tells him to move out immediately.
- Determinator:Cheetor: We got a full-scale Pred attack, and the shields are failing!
Rattrap: Oh, great. We're all gonna die.
Rhinox: It happens, but miracles happen, too. Let's go!
- Came Back Strong: Optimus is a Transmetal now.
- Didn't See That Coming: Silverbolt bought Megatron's anti-Maximal rhetoric, so he's stunned when Rattrap and Cheetor spare him.
- Due to the Dead: Subverted. Rattrap defends taking Optimus's quarters by saying, "The guy was dead."
- Face Death with Dignity: Dinobot specifically when it looks like the Predacons are about to win.
- Foreshadowing: Blackarachnia finds some secret codes and takes them for herself. Megatron doesn't quite believe her lie, either.
- HeelFace Turn: Silverbolt, not that he was exactly evil to start with.
- He's Back: Transmetal Optimus Primal.
- Mass "Oh, Crap!": Just about everyone is surprised to see that Optimus is back.
- Minion with an F in Evil: Silverbolt while fighting for the Predacons.
- Mood Whiplash: Dinobot stands up to fight and lets out a battle cry, only to be shot in the stomach and fall over.
- Mythology Gag: Rhinox describes the place he went as "Where all are one."
- Running Gag: Tarantulas once again finds himself on the receiving end of a giant boulder.
- Strange Minds Think Alike: Though preferring getting the job done quickly, Megatron does like Quickstrike's preference for making an enemy suffer.
- Underestimating Badassery: Played with during an exchange. Silverbolt thinks it's foolish for the Maximals to put up such a hopeless fight, but Megatron knows they wouldn't be doing this without a good reason.
