** Diagnostic Drone was well-liked, enough to appear in other continuities after BeastMachines.

* SpecialEffectsFailure: Due to limited use of specular and emissive maps unlike Beast Wars (meaning fewer shiny and glowy effects) explosions are represented by meshes with a solid, ''shaded'' texture.

* ToughActToFollow: BeastWars was (and still is) seen as one of, if not THE greatest Transformers shows ever and the one that single-handily rescued the franchise from the DorkAge that was Generation 2. So of course Beast Machines was going to have a hard time measuring up. Made even worse by the fact that writers like Bob Skir were directly ordered NOT to watch Beast Wars, making it a ForegoneConclusion that creating a coherent show with characters from a previous series that you've never watched before would be downright impossible.

* FranchiseOriginalSin: Inverted! A lot of aspects from this show that people complain about (stronger continuity, darker storytelling, InNameOnly characters, etc.) would later be used to good effect by later ''Transformers'' series such as the Dreamwave and IDW comics, ''Transformers Animated'', and ''Transformers Prime''. One could consider this show an experimental first step before it's ideas, themes, and methods were perfected by later incarnations of ''Transformers''.

* CompleteMonster: Megatron was already a huge bastard in Beast Wars. This show, however, takes it UpToEleven. Here, he's responsible for the de-sparking of 99.99% of all the Transformers on Cybertron, meaning, effectively, ''he stole their souls''. Then, he tore apart every last one of those vacant bodies and recycled them into his Vehicon drone army. When some of the last Maximals known to exist crashland on what is now his planet, he captures them, gloat over them, and seeks to de-spark ''them'' now too. And, finally, he decides to [[spoiler:devour/absorb all the sparks he's stolen, [[GodIsEvil becoming God in the process]]]].

* 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.
