As Megatron plans on knocking the moon out of it's orbit to fill a single canyon with water to gain limitless power, three students find Brawl's brain on a junkyard, and create a super-intelligent robot with it. Okay...

Tropes

  • Bizarre Alien Biology: Brawl is able to survive without a part of his brain, and the kids can hear what Brawl is hearing through it. The only thing it really affects is that the Combaticons cannot combine without it.
  • Brainy Brunette: Elise Presser
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Martin and Roland
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Bruticus gets utterly destroyed with a single shot from Defensor. Only Swindle survives intact.
  • Explosive Leash: Soundwave forces Swindle to reassemble his fellow Combaticons by installing a bomb in his head. It gives him 15 hours.
  • Fun with Acronyms: B.O.T stands for Biotronic Operational Telecommunicator.
  • Informed Ability:

    • Despite the acronym, B.O.T is not biomechanical nor does he communicate.
    • Megatron's cannon is supposedly powerful enough to knock The Moon out of orbit. However, the worst we see it do is knock a few Decepticons over.
  • Missing Steps Plan: It's not explained how exactly flooding a single canyon with controlled tides creates a limitless amount of power.
  • Self-Destruct Button: Megatron's new device has a convenient "OVERCHARGE" button located on a human-level control panel.
  • Those Two Guys: Martin and Roland
  • Violation of Common Sense: Three students manage to create a super-intelligent robot... Using Brawl's brain. Keep in mind, Brawl is an idiot.
