''Robots in Disguise'' was the first dubbed ''{{Transformers}}'' show ever broadcast for a US audience. (English dubs of Japan-exclusive [[Franchise/TransformersGeneration1 G1]] cartoons like ''[[TransformersHeadmasters The Headmasters]]'' were produced in Asia for markets like Malaysia, but those dubs never aired in the US because they were really, really bad.) ''Car Robots'', the original Japanese series from which it was adapted, premiered in Japan in 2000. Originally the series was not going to be imported from Japan, but when Hasbro scrapped the planned ''[[TransformersTransTech Transtech]]'' line at the eleventh hour the ''Car Robots'' line and its attendant cartoon were imported to fill the void until [[TransformersArmada a new replacement]] could be designed.

* BreakoutCharacter: Sky-Byte and Scourge. The latter popularized the concept of evil Optimus clones, and since then, there's been at least one in nearly every series (to the point that there was a fan movement to change the more common '[[NightmareRetardant Nemesis Prime]]' to his name). The former received an incarnation in ''TransformersAnimated'', was considered for a ''Universe'' toy before until Botcon came out with an awesome Sharkticon remold, and even managed the rare feat of retroactively being added to G1 in two separate continuities.

* CampGay: Gas Skunk, in the Japanese version. Played by the same guy that does Emporio Ivankov in ''OnePiece''. * {{Canon Immigrant}}/ {{Retcon}}: Kiss Players retcons Car Robots into the G1 continuity family, both series take place in between the movie (set in 2005) and Season 3 (which is set in 2010 in Japan as opposed to one year after the movie). Brave Maximus time travels, arriving on the Planet Master, becoming the inspiration for the construction of Fortress Maximus from TransformersHeadmasters anime.

* MeaningfulName: In Japan, this incarnation of Megatron was named Gigatron. "Giga" means a thousand units of something, which applies to this Megatron having atleast ten alternate modes, quite possibly the most out of any character in any of the series.
