''Beast Machines'' was the followup cartoon and toyline to ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars''; like its predecessor, it was animated entirely in {{CGI}} by MainframeEntertainment but featured a massive change to the production and writing staff. It begins a new story with the characters of ''Beast Wars'' but in general is not considered a continuous storyline.

** DarkChick: Jetstorm.Jetstorm, a male example since he's quirky, but considers himself beautiful and eventually falls for one of the heroes.

* HowDoIShotWeb: The initial four Maximals in this series have difficulty adapting to being biomechanical, particularly Rattrap who doesn't figure out how to transform until ''The Weak Component''. Maximals introduced later have no such difficulties, with Nightscream, Silverbolt and Botanica understanding the process with no training at all.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Blackarachnia has a moment in ''The Weak Component'', when [[spoiler: her response to finding out about the deal Rattrap cut with Megatron is declare him a traitor and attack. She's certainly one to talk.]]

* ShoutOut: From ''Revelations: "Revelations: Part 1'', 1", while attacking the others:



** ''The Weak Component'' has several instances. Megatron, of all people, calls Blackarachnia, Cheetor and Nightscream on mistreating Rattrap and Optimus for promising more than he can deliver. For their part, [=BCN=] call Rattrap out on making a deal with Megatron and Optimus calls him for attacking them.

** The first season had Optimus and Cheetor at odds over pretty much every decision. Some arguments might have been forced, but in ''End of the Line'', Cheetor really lets Optimus have it over intending [[spoiler:to use the Plasma Energy Chamber to annihilate all machinery on Cybertron]] to stop Megatron.

''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) 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.
