  • Complete Monster: Megatron is the leader of the Predacons, who arrived on Earth in search of the Autobot Weapon Fortress Maximus under the pretext of raiding Earth for its energy. Upon arrival, he kidnaps Doctor Kenneth Onishi and probes his mind to find the location of Fortress Maximus. After receiving knowledge of the Autobot Protoforms, Megatron corrupts their sparks in order to create his Decepticons. Although initially A Father to His Men if they prove themselves worthy of respect, he discards these qualities upon his rebirth as the Decepticon Galvatron — absorbing the energies of the Predacon Brothers against their will to power his new body immediately upon his transformation, and later reducing Scourge and the Decepticons to mindless drones for plotting to overthrow him with the use of Fortress Maximus. Galvatron's worst actions, however, came during the finale when, after surviving a battle with Fortress Maximus, he transforms into bat form and drains Fortress Maximus's energy to power himself. He then unleashes his bat swarm to brainwash human children with the goal of enslaving them and repeating the process from planet to planet until he's conquered the universe, threatening to harm the children if Omega Supreme or the Autobots intervene. When the Autobots flee into the Space Bridge, Galvatron sends the Decepticons to pursue with the intention of destroying both groups by collapsing the Space Bridge, not caring if any Predacon gets caught in the collapse, all so he could have the entire planet to himself.
  • Ensemble Darkhorses: Sky-Byte and Scourge. Sky-Byte proved so popular, he has counterparts in the Animated and G1 universes.
    • Mirage. Being a cool F1 car that is a lone sniper helps a lot
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Robots in Disguise is more popular in the USA than Car Robots is in Japan, probably due to the Woolseyisms, Mythology Gags, and the heavy fan backlash against the Unicron Trilogy.
  • So Okay It's Average: General consensus is that it isn't the best Transformers series, but it's definitely not the worst.
  • The Woobie: Sky-Byte.
  • Woolseyism[context?]
