** In the script for the episode "Coming of the Fuzors", the blanks (protoforms without sparks) were originally referred to as "roc-shaan" as a TakeThat to Raksha, a Transformers fan notorious for viewing the Decepticons as the real heroes who was also notable for disliking ''Beast Wars''.

** Rattrap was going to be a more tragic figure. Based on the exposed "brain" on his toy, Rattrap was going to be heavily malformed due to faulty scanning equipment. Over the show, Rattrap would learn to [[InspirationallyDisadvantaged overcome his disabilities]] and become a [[HandicappedBadass competent warrior]]. It was scrapped because the technology was not yet able to render his organic innards correctly.

Added DiffLines:

* UnfinishedEpisode: At least three such episodes are known. The most famous is ''Dark Glass'', a planned Season 3 episode which would have detailed Rattrap's attempts to upload the memories of the original Dinobot into Dinobot II, thus partially filling in a major PlotHole in the SeriesFinale. It is believed to have been scrapped because the story was too dark and not action-packed enough, although the writers have, likely due to misremembering, at times suggested other reasons. Two other unproduced episodes were given the {{working title}}s ''A Greater Ape'' and "''Bitch Wars''" -- the former was about Optimus believing himself to be a real gorilla, even joining a group of them, and was canceled because of CGI limitations; the latter was to be GirlsNightOutEpisode but the concept didn't make much sense.

* RelationshipVoiceActor: DavidKaye is a fearsome BadAss, while Don Brown is his somewhat more comedic second-in-command - not only here, but in ''{{Inuyasha}}''.

** In "The Agenda, Part 2", the writers wanted Creator/FrankWelker to reprise his role as [[Franchise/TransformersGeneration1 G1 Megatron]]. Sadly, M. Welker had a very busy schedule and the cost involved for just a few lines prompted the writers to drop the idea. Creator/GaryChalk filled-in for the role.

** Speaking of Megatron and Creator/GaryChalk, he originally auditioned for ''this'' show's version of Megatron. The role went to DavidKaye, however, and he ended up voicing Optimus Primal instead.
** Insecticon - one of the first Predacon toys to be released - was originally going to be featured in this series, most likely as part of the original Predacon line-up. This appears to have been learned when Ben Yee's website featured a script draft of "Power Surge" in which Insecticon had dialogue.
** "Fallen Comrades" was originally going to introduce Wolfang. Of course, between a certain new toy about to come out, Wolfang's own toy being old news and that tinkering Cheetor's existing character model/design would save time and money, Tigatron was used instead.

*** The first, '' A Greater Ape'', would feature Optimus believing himself to be a real gorilla after a blow to the head. He would later join a gorilla troop and fall in love with a female ape before an attack by the Predacons would jog his memory. It wasn't made due to the number of new models that would have to be made for the episode.
*** The second, called ''Bitch Wars'', (which was ''hopefully'' just a working title) would have Airazor and Blackarachnia leaving their factions, then teaming up and [[StartMyOwn start their own all-female faction.]] It was not made because the writers had no idea how to deal with the concept realistically.

** In the episode "Dark Designs", Waspinator receives what seems like brain damage, and is called wacko. He responds by calling himself Wonko The Sane, the name of a moderator from a G1 fan chat room.

* AscendedFanon: The Predacon base's name, "Darksyde", came from a {{fanon}} [[{{Mondegreen}} misinterpretation]] of a line spoken by Terrorsaur in the episode "Equal Measures". ("Welcome to the dark side!") It was given an official name first in the ''Beast Wars Transmetals'' video, and then in the {{prequel}} video ''Dawn of Future's Past''.
