** Speaking of the ''Ark'', it's appearance here was partially modeled after both the version seen in the G1 cartoon, as well as the [[StarTrekDeepSpaceNine USS Defiant]] (especially the nose area).

* ShootTheHostage: Dinobot tries this to use Tarantulus as a hostage against Megatron. The problem with this scenario is that he tries to use [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder Tarantulus]] as a hostage against [[MagnificentBastard Megatron]].
-->'''Dinobot:''' (holding Tarantulas) Do not fire, Megatron! I have a hostage!\\
'''Megatron:''' Why, so you do. ''*Fires*''

* BigCreepyCrawlies: Throughout the series, nearly all of the Predacons have insect or arachnid beast modes. At one point, ''every'' Predacon aside from Megatron is at least half-arthropod.

Despite the cries of "[[TheyChangedItNowItSucks TRUKK NOT MUNKY!]]" from the purists, ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' was actually quite innovative for its time, not only because of the aforementioned CG, but also because of the tight, involving storyline, significant character development, and revolutionary ball joint technology. This latter aspect not only made the toys much easier to play with, but also provided more complex transformations, more realistic alt-modes and much more poseable figures. In addition, the show made attempts to push the boundaries of contemporary children's shows via [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar witty wordplay]] and graphic violence that was let slip because [[SymbolicBlood flying robot parts]] [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman have been permissible]] since time immemorial.

This latter aspect not only made the toys much easier to play with, but also provided more complex transformations, more realistic alt-modes and much more poseable figures. In addition, Unfortunately the toyline also possesses some of the worst examples of 'Shell-formers', coming to mean toys with a particuarly poorly integrated alt-mode - basically you could remove most of the alt-mode and have a functional robot.

On the plus-side,
the show made attempts to push the boundaries of contemporary children's shows via [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar witty wordplay]] and graphic violence that was let slip because [[SymbolicBlood flying robot parts]] [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman have been permissible]] since time immemorial.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Cheetor firing upon Megatron in the first episode cemented the Predacons' decision to go to war with the Maximals after the crash. He also fired the first shot in his skirmish with Waspinator.
