** 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 inforcing traffic laws because many consider it taboo to discuss religious concepts in children's shows.

* {{Bowdlerise}}: Not as notable in most cases of anime being dubbed for English-speaking audiences, but there are some examples.
** 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.

* TokenMiniMoe: T-AI (pronounced 'tie'). She ''is'' a computer generated hologram, but she certainly looks like a loli.
** And then the KT Figure Collection, designed by Yuki Oshima (who would later on create the [[{{Squick}} Kiss Players]] stories), firmly cemented her status of loli.
** I dunno, [[http://tfwiki.net/w2/images2/0/00/T-AI-colorsheet.jpg that's a pretty old and developed loli]]. She just looks like a kid because she's the same ''size'' as the kid characters and doesn't have a very adult voice, either.

''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.

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.
