** Not to mention, Optimus's sacrifice wasn't deliberately planned. He knew it was a dangerous mission, but he intended to bale out and fly back afterwards. [[OhCrap Then the hatch turns out to be sealed]].Optimus spends the last minutes before the crash stuck in a coffin-size chamber hurtling towards the weapon, while Megatron taunts him by hologram about how the Maximals are doomed without him and the war is lost.

*** Feral cheetor's first appearance sees him stalk and dispatch a whole group of predacons, including Dinobot2 and Megatron, all the while moving too fast to be seen clearly. The scenes in between the attacks are very tense and paranoid, particularly when Megatron panics and shoots Waspinator by accident.
** More to the point, Megatron himself is *Panicking* by then. This is a guy who laughed off the iminent destruction of the planet he was stranded on, and used it to take out Optimus. Every time something goes wrong for him, he is at worst briefly angered, and at best uses it to his advantage. Feral Cheetor, though? he's reduced to blasting at random shadows. *And it doesn't help*
* There was a scene where Megatron goes to the Ark to steal his ancestor's (That would be G1!Megatron's) spark. Instead of cutting it out like he did with Rampage, he does something even more horrifying. He uses a tentacle like appendage to rip his ancestor's spark out.
* Then there is what Megatron does to Dinobot [[spoiler: after his sacrifice. He took their greatest hero, and made a clone of him more powerful and dreadful than ever. Megatron made him into a horrible insult against his memory on purpose]] and every scene featuring him felt like a horror movie to this troper. Now, try to imagine how it must have felt for the Maximals, especially [[VitriolicBestBuds Rattrap]]...

* Megatron's last resort was to ''wipe the entire Cybertronian race from existance'' by killing Optimus Prime (and thus the Matrix) before the Great War could end. This would pretty much wipe everyone on the show but [[MadScientist Taran]][[TheStarscream tulas]] (and that's only because he's got DivineParentage in the form of ''Unicron'') ''from existance''. It's thusly no small wonder that Megatron is ''reluctant'' to go through with it.
* In "Other Voices", the fact that the Vok used ''[[WesternAnimation/TheTransformersTheMovie Unicron]]'' as AFormYouAreComfortableWith whiles speaking with Optimus has terrifying implications towards their powers.

** While his very existence is nightmare fuel in its own right, his nature and appearance don't help matters. His beast mode resembles a skeleton, his robot mode looks scarred and patched together and he gives off the vibe of being a reanimated corpse like a zombie or vampire rather than a "natural" being like the other characters. While Waspinator was intimidated by the original he was never outright fearful but when he meets the clone he is ''terrified.''

* The Vok Planet Buster was all kinds of terrifying, being the aliens' official response to a handful of robots contaminating their "experiment", and it proceeds to [[DisproportionateRetribution blow up all the energon on the planet]]. If it wasn't for Optimus [[spoiler:[[HeroicSacrifice sacrificing himself]]]], it's likely the whole planet [[ApocalypseHow could have been destroyed]] with everything on it. And even after the blasted thing's destroyed, it's ''still'' trying to kill everything due to the Quantum Surge that comes in it's wake. The expanding blast wave engulfs the whole planet, cutting through shields and starship hull like tissue paper, radiation bombarding the planet like deadly rain. Rattrap, Cheetor, and even ''Megatron'' cry out in agony as their superstructures mutate from the radiation, and on first viewing you can't tell if they're dying in front of your eyes or what. And then there's that [[HellIsThatNoise hellish noise]] that pervades the Axalon and Darksyde as the radiation cuts through. After the Planet Buster weapon and the Quantum Surge are done, half the planet is good as burnt.

* ''{{Transformers}}: WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' is a very violent show, exploiting the Mecha Mooks loophole as far as it can. Characters are bashed up, blown apart, shot, stabbed... This is not a show for children under ten, having been written with an eye towards not boring those who grew up on the original Transformers and were at that point in their teens and twenties.
