* CallBack: A fairly subtle, clever one: Megatron's selection of [[spoiler: Rhinox]] for one of his generals seems odd, until you remember that Megatron saw what he was capable of when he was infected with a Predacon virus back in season 1 of ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars''. Not only is [[spoiler: Rhinox]] capable of Machiavellian scheming beyond even Megatron's skills, but he's also given to overconfident gloating, both traits that Megatron takes advantage of.

''Beast Machines'' tried to tackle such concepts as loyalty, individuality, the merits of freedom vs. chaos, and the challenges of living in an increasingly technological society. This over-ambitious aim, coupled with the ContinuityLockout and the radical departure in tone from its predecessor, as well as some ''massive'' departure from the ''Beast Wars'''s characterizations in some cases, turned this show into one of the most hated ''Transformers'' incarnations of all time when it aired; the sheer backlash over it at the time led to Hasbro scrapping a planned SequelSeries named ''[[TransformersTransTech Transtech]]'' in favor of dubbing ''Anime/TransformersRobotsInDisguise''. However, with the subsequent release of the (generally lower-quality) Anime/UnicronTrilogy as well as readier access to Japanese post-[[Franchise/TransformersGeneration1 G1]] series, coupled with the gap from the Beast Wars continuity and new fans watching it as a work of its own; ''Beast Machines'' is now looked upon somewhat more favorably, though it's hardly universal.

** Megatron, already a {{badass}}, went from a humorous campy villain in WesternAnimation/BeastWars to a rather dark character and believable threat in this series. It's one of the ''only'' character changes that have been well received -- though not by everyone, some of whom complain that his humor was a large part of his charm and his hatred of all things organic is out of character.

** In the same episode, we have Blackarachnia ''checking herself out'' in the background before glaring at Botanica. Feeling inadequate, Legs?

* OffModel: The [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Beast_Machines:_Transformers_%28toyline%29#Overview toyline]] is '''''infamous''''' for not being screen accurate towards the show. With the toys for Optimus Primal, Cheetor, Silverbolt and Tankor being the most notorious examples.
** In regards to the show itself, the models for Vehicon generals Jetstorm, Thrust and Tankor often get confused with the models of the drones they command. Megatron's eye scar also can't decide whether it should be over his right eye (its proper place) or his left.
