They battled against it, but could not halt its destructive feeding. Eventually they devised a brilliant plan to effectively contain it away. They build a massive prison around it, [[SealedEvilInACan to seal it away forever]]... but long after the ancients left the universe, it began to move of its own accord, using the technology around it to devour again. [[LeakingCanOfEvil It didn't work]].

[[WMG: The Beast Planet was a failed prison, for the Beast itself]]
While exploring and colonizing the cosmos, the Ancients eventually encountered a horrible gigantic {{EldritchAbomination}}, not life as we know it, a being that feds and devours on living worlds like cancer... The Beast.

A fun theroy is that the Beast Planet is what became of Unicron after his failed attempt at resurrection in the G1/Beast Wars timeline. His body was revived as a soulless machine who continues to consume planets but no longer has Unicron's consciousness driving it.

* This makes a lot of sense, and could also explain why Planet Rock has the most militarized and violent population; their planet's resource is minerals, which is only used for construction in military constructs. These are lower priority to Fire, Ice and Bone, who are all basic necessities (energy, water and food). This means that Rock must be raided less, and thus allowed them to not only form a larger military (less casualties) but also require a stronger military because they need to raid one more planet than the others for necessities (all of the planets they raid have basic necessities, while other planets can afford to ignore Rock if they're in a shortage).

* It could be that the Beast Planet is the eventual evolution of said race, joining their consciousness into a technological whole. Their brutal ways is simply a product of BlueAndOrangeMorality.

*I'd actually take it even further. The 4 planets are unable to remain independent without each other, so I think they were probably created at a initial level of space faring capabilities. Then those precursors left and that part of the history of the 4 planets disappeared. So long as the precursors knew about the Beast Planet, they could tell the inhabitants of the system about it. If you wanted to take it further, you could make the argument that the Beast and the Precursors are inherently linked - either the same entities or separate parts of the same faction. Could be similar to the Burning Legion from Warcraft who destroy the creations of the Titans while the Titans pay them no heed, or it could be that the Precursors create planets for whatever reason knowing that the Beast will eventually consume them - perhaps intending them to eventually be consumed by the Beast - perhaps even being the Beast and this merely being what the Beast does when it is done with a system. Either way, the Beast is intentionally targeting creations of the Precursors - how else would Lamprey know that all of those planets have a World Engine - not just a possibility, but a reality. Heck, she knew it well enough that Tekla was able to find the entrance to it in under a day.

*Considering Unicron [[AllThereInTheManual hops between universes at will]], it might not be all that unlikely that Unicron simply decided to stop by the Shadow Raiders universe for a day and [[PlanetEater eat]] [[OmnicidalManiac their reality]].

First up, the manner in which the Beast Planet eats planets Tek, Fire, Jungle, and Reptizard is highly reminiscent of the way Unicron at Lithone in ''TransformersTheMovie''. Also, the planet [[BeastMachines Botanica]] explored to get her plant mode looked very like Planet Jungle; while this may simply have been a simple case of recycling an environment to save on costs, it's much more fun to think the two series take place in the same universe. And if ''Shadow Raiders'' and ''Beast Machines'' exist in the same universe, that means Unicron must be out there ''somewhere''.
