* TechnologyMarchesOn: The Maximals are several times seen using data discs that strongly resemble floppies.
** Towards the end of "Dark Designs," when Cheetor asks Rhinox what it was like to be a Predacon, he answers "it's like you're three gigabytes of attitude on a two-gig hard drive." No, he didn't say flash drive, he said ''hard drive''.

Added DiffLines:

** During early production, Primal and Megatron would have ''four'' modes, including the bat and alligator forms their early toys took. This was far too difficult to animate so they got stuck with the gorilla and T-rex modes. Except, numerous scripts had already been written with Primal flying around due to his bat mode. The bat mode was dropped but his flight capabilities were retained to avoid having to rewrite things, even if his ability to fly didn't make logical sense now.

* SerendipityWritesThePlot: The reason why there are so few characters [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters compared to G1]] is because CGI was quite expensive when it was created, forcing the creators to limit the number of characters on each side. Of course, fewer characters meant a stronger focus on the characterization of the existing characters, so it wasn't all bad.

** During production of Season 3, the obvious problem came up that Optimus' new body was far too big to fit inside the Maximal base. So in the Season 3 premiere the base is destroyed and the Maximals salvage it to make a new base, with Optimus standing on the ruins of the previous base's substructure.

* NamesTheSame: ''Beast Wars'' reused a few names from the previous year's ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeExtreme'', which was also designed by Kenner. The recycled names are Inferno, Rampage, and Quickstrike (spelled "[[XtremeKoolLetterz Quick Stryke]]" in ''Extreme'').

** Waspinator and Rhinox had Transmetal toys in the toy line, even though they never changed bodies in the show. This becomes an important point for Rhinox if you support the theory that he [[spoiler: decides that Cybertron should be made purely technological in ''BeastMachines'']] because he had become hateful of his comparatively useless beast mode.

Added DiffLines:

*** Early in the series' development, the crew wanted to have Chris Latta reprise his role as Starscream. Unfortunately, he died in 1994, two years before "Possession" aired, and had to have Terrorsaur's VA, Doug Parker, impersonate him.

** In the script for the episode "Coming of the Fuzors, Part 1", 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''.

** The fourth season would've had the show leave Earth and go into space to chase Megatron after he escaped in the ''Nemesis'', with the series rechristened as ''Beast Hunter's''. A planned subplot would've been the Maximals questioning if they can trust Tigerhawk since he was a Vok emissary, G1 Megatron's Spark trying to take control of his descendant's body, and the Coneheads being recurring villains.
