* The existence new Predacon's as the series goes on is pretty horrible, when you think about it. At the start of the series, before they crash land on Earth the Maximal's jettison their hibernating crew members in their life pods to protect them from the crash and energon on the planet, planning to pick them up after they sort out the whole mess. New characters are introduced in the series by having some of these pods crash to Earth, and the Maximals fight over them. So far, every single awakened character has no memory of their time on Cybertron due to damage from the crash. But the Predicons take it one step further and purposely [[BrainwashedAndCrazy wipe their memories and implant a program]] that makes them aggressive, scheming, and all the other things that Megatron wants in a minion. As shown in the last few episodes, if the program is removed, it kills the Predicon in was implanted in. That means that Inferno, Blackarachnia, and Quickstrike were probably all loyal Maximals at one point, and all much different people than what they were forced to become.

** Of course, earlier in the episode, Cheetor's reaction to Rhinox's programming was "Better dead than Pred", which led Dinobot to retort "Some of us have survived the experience", so that isn't entirely overlooked.

** Given that this Predacons were unaffected by the time storm, this implies that not only do the Decepticons defeat the Autobots, but they also beat Unicron as well, without the use of the Matrix!

** Come to think of it, the glitch makes no sense at all. The Maximals primarily use their alt-modes to unobtrusivley explore inhabited worlds. How would they do their studies on the local populations if they started tweaking out after a few days in beast-mode?

*** You also have to take into account that the glitch only comes up because they have to stay in their alt-modes for days to protect themselves from Energon poisoning. As explorers, they would have hidden their ship and be returning to it during downtime each day where they could safely return to robot mode and the ship's shields would protect them from any dangerous radiations.

Added DiffLines:

**** No, because the Predacon records were never sealed, so any Predacon who cared easily learned what happened on Earth (Megatron Dinobot, even Blackarachnia who was 'born' on Earth). It's just that messing with time on that scale is considered insane and over the line even to the Predacons, Megatron was just that crazy and his minions too uninformed about his real motives. You'll notice the only other Predacons who understood what he was doing were Tarantulas, who wanted EVERYONE to die, and Dinobot, who died trying to stop Megatron from manipulating time.

*This one mostly affects the toys, but there's a small crab figure named Razorclaw. Now, in G1, the original Predacons included a lion named Razorclaw and a tiger named Rampage. So Beast Wars ''also'' has a Razorclaw and a Rampage who turn into similar animals, the main difference being one is a lot bigger. However, which is which is different.



** Of course, earlier in the episode, Cheetor's reaction to Rhinox's programming was "Better dead than Pred", which led Dinobot to retort "Some of use have survived the experience", so that isn't entirely overlooked.

* Despite having a spark said to be indestructable, Depth Charge is able to destroy it by ramming a spike of energon into it. At first this seems like an error, considering Megatron was able to use an energon blade to divide Rampage's spark in two to no ill effect. But when Rampage dies Dinobot is able to sense it and notes that he finally feels whole. Rampage's spark ''wasn't'' destroyed, half of it was and the other half regenerated to compensate.

* In "Optimal Situation", when Optimus first received his "Optimal" body, he kicked ass and took names of all the Predacons, [[TheWorfEffect but for the rest of the season, Optimus lost many of his fights]]. Perhaps Optimus Prime's spark lent him lots of power. This is especially noteworthy when he fights the Transmetal 2 Megatron, who had the spark of G1 Megatron in him, in the last few episodes.



* A somewhat minor example, but when Rhinox is deprogrammed in ''Dark Designs'', he comments about how being a Predacon is "like being three gigs of attitude on a two gig hard drive. No wonder they've got personality problems", leading to an EverybodyLaughsEnding... save for Dinobot, who is a Maximal by choice, not by programming, and who is still immensely proud of his Predacon heritage (Megatron and his merry band of lunatics, not so much). What Rhinox said would be immensely insulting to someone like that.

*** Can't it be considered ProperlyParanoid when the first thing a capable Predacon leader does when getting hold of the location of Earth was to head there with the explicit intent to go back in time and kill the Autobots in stasis lock? Meanwhile, Starscream wasn't always a megalomaniac, he used to be a scientist. Could you condemn someone just because they share a similar origin to someone horrible (or did they explain somewhere that whatever turned Starscream immortal also turned him treacherous and megalomaniacal?)

*** It could have been a delayed reaction of sorts. The Maximals were disappearing first since Optimus Prime, the Maximals' ancestor was dying, but if the altering of the timeline continued unopposed the Predacons would likely have gone next.

next.
* Waspinator's apparent invincibility was mostly a running gag, but considering he was possessed by the immortal Starscream it is possible he came away from the experience with similar capabilities.
