    Raf got hit with the Dark Energon because he was riding inside Bumblebee. Though it doesn't seem like it, 'Bee is also affected to a lesser degree. He is presumably just "putting on a brave face" for Rafs sake, as Optimus tells Arcee to look after Raf and Bumblebee when sending them back to base. Plus, a point brought up in some discussions on the final episode, 'Bee directly handled a shard of Dark Energon when he was being possessed by Megatron in Out of his Head. It would be fair to assume that this allowed him to develop a minor immunity to its effects.

    So basically just pretend that it didn't happen. Okay gotcha.

    I'd like to note that BB has handled Dark Energon before. It was a small amount but he has been exposed to it. Raf has never come into contact with it and doesn't have Energon in his body to counteract the effects.

    I think that's why it hurt Raf so much.

    Well, it could also depend on the size of the individual affected. Raf is tiny compared to Bumblebee.

    It's like the dosage between a large creature and a small creature. The larger the creature the larger the dosage needed to cause an effect, the smaller the creature the lesser the dosage needed to induce an effect.

    Raf was just smaller than Bumblebee.


    Also there's no telling how much Bumblebee's armour and various alloys were able to shield his internal organs from absorbing the dark energon.
