* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* SorryILeftTheBGMOn: In the third-season episode "Changing of the Guard", when the previously reluctant Rattrap is beginning to enjoy his submarine ride, cheery, upbeat music (a rarity for this series in general) begins playing. Cut to Silverbolt, listening to the music over his communicator with a puzzled expression.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar:
** All over the place. The writers cleverly used [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Anatomic_euphemism machine-based terminology]] such as [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Slag_%28slang%29 slag,]] scrap, or "that guy has bearings of chrome steel" in place of actual foul language. Some of the byplay between Blackarachnia and Silverbolt is particularly clever, implying lots but saying little.
** In one scene of the episode "Possession", Starscream (possessing Waspinator) is blatantly attempting to grab Blackarachnia's ass.
** In "Aftermath", Tigatron and Airazor gasp at Rattrap's new look once he is turned into a Transmetal. Rattrap asks "What's with you two? Is my gearbox hanging out or somethin'?" As he says the last part he waves his hand over his crotch area.
** From "The Agenda Pt. 1":
*** After Silverbolt's illegal flirting with Blackarachnia:
-->'''Rattrap:''' So, uh, where ya' been, bird-dog?\\
'''Silverbolt:''' Uh, scout patrol...\\
'''Rattrap:''' Oh, yeah, yeah, scoutin' the enemy, yeah. Find any new ''positions''?
*** Upon hearing that they may be going home, Rattrap invites Silverbolt to a seedy bar where the waitresses do not have their chest plates on.
** In "Proving Grounds", Blackarachnia and Cheetor make some suggestive remarks about Blackarachnia's digital hologram when the Maximals are examining her to determine whether they can make her a Maximal as she was before she became a Predacon, with Blackarachnia asking if she looks good on the inside as she does on the outside and Cheetor remarking that Blackarachnia has the best lines he's ever seen.
** In "Nemesis, Part 2", when Blackarachnia needs a cable and decides Rattrap's sword/tail will do:
-->'''Rattrap:''' Hey! You emasculatin' fembot!\\
''(Blackarachnia smirks and, with a flick of her claw, slices the tip off Rattrap's sword/tail)''\\
'''Silverbolt:''' ''(disturbed look on his face)'' Oooh....

* BehindAStick: In "Nemesis", Inferno is seen hiding behind a tree that is clearly to thin to conceal him when the recently base-less Predacons evade a Maximal patrol.
