* ContinuityLockout: A common complaint of the show was that the continuity was so strong that the show was impossible to follow unless one started from the beginning. Yet still, at a length of only twenty-six episodes, this is not as much of a drawback as it could be.

''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.

* 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.
