** In the 11th episode, Wrecker Hook (known as Two-Line in the English dub) boasts about how the drivers of the vehicles he tows will be punished for their sins by God. The English dub changes it to Two-Line being obsessed with enforcing traffic laws because many consider it taboo to discuss religious concepts in children's shows.

* 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 ''WesternAnimation/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.

** Because the Japanese have different standards on what is acceptable for children's media, a lot of the characters swear in the Japanese version. The language is obviously cleaned up in the English dub.

* AntiVillain: Sky-Byte becomes somewhat of a reluctant ally to the Autobots as the series goes on and is somewhat less malicious than the other villains. [[spoiler:He's so sly and slippery that he's the only one of the Decepticons and Predacons that managed to escape being imprisoned forever, gloating about it in the ending of the English dub]].

Added DiffLines:

* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Sky-Byte. As some follow-up material would reveal, he didn't "escape" the Autobots in the last episode, but was deliberately allowed to remain free because they could tell he had reformed. He would go on to become a guardian of both humanity as well as Earth's oceans.]]

''Robots in Disguise'' was produced and dubbed by Creator/SabanEntertainment, and aired from September 2001 to March 2002 on Creator/FoxKids (which had also aired 'WesternAnimation/BeastMachines'' and reruns of ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' prior to this). It was something of a return to roots for Transformers fiction, in the sense that many characters transformed into realistic, modern Earth vehicles instead of animals or abstract/futuristic vehicles, as was standard in the [[WesternAnimation/BeastWars Beast Era]]. It also marked the return of the Autobot faction and sigil for the good guys. The villains were initially called Predacons as they were in ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'', but the Decepticons were added later as a sub-group. The show makes a contrast between the bumbling antics of the Predacons and the professional, sinister Decepticons.

For its all its action-packed adventures, there was an equal amount of emphasis on gags and humor. For all its emphasis on stand-out characterization, the plot could at times be equally as kiddy (Omega Prime powering his Matrix Blade with the happiness of children). However, attempts to compare ''Robots in Disguise'' to ''Beast Wars'' or ''WesternAnimation/BeastMachines'' may prove fruitless in the long run as the show was made in Japan for young children. But all in all, ''Robots in Disguise'' was ultimately meant to be a transitional/filler series from the end of ''Beast Machines'' to the start of ''Armada'' and it did its job quite well.

All 39 episodes were scheduled to run during the afternoon Fox Kids programming block on the Fox television network. The third episode, "Bullet Train to the Rescue", was scheduled to air on September 11, 2001, but was not aired in most areas because of the terrorist attacks in America that day. Later episodes were edited to remove scenes that might be TooSoon for the viewers, such as buildings being blown up.
