** At what point [[spoiler:did Silverbolt really become aware that he had been reprogrammed into Jetstorm - and start enjoying the experience of being an evil monster? When Blackarachnia originally awakened Silverbolt's mind in Jetstorm's body his personality appeared to be more or less the same, but when she brought him back completely in season 2 he had clearly changed from NiceGuy KnightInShiningArmor to a guilt ridden loner (in the form of a samurai condor) who was understandably upset over his tenure as Jetstorm. If he didn't realize what he was doing until after the initial reawakening, was it really the Jetstorm personality refusing to be changed back, or was it Silverbolt speaking through Jetstorm?]]


Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:Blackarachnia initially reawakening Silverbolt's mind inside Jetstorm's body and the two are briefly reunited before the Jetstorm personality reasserts itself. There's something undeniably heartwarming about the scene, from Silverbolt referring to her as the "dark poison" of his heart, followed by Blackarachnia affectionately observing "There's only one Transformer who could say something that corny with a straight face..."]]

** Case in point: ''The Weak Component''. You'd expect Blackarachnia, Cheetor and Nightscream to cut Rattrap some slack, since he's just getting used to his new body. Instead, they all pick up the JerkassBall and drive him to go to Megatron for some weapons upgrade. [[SarcasmMode What a loyal and understanding group of friends.]]

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Jetstorm is incredibly popular.
** All of the Vehicon generals were, to some extent, particularly Jetstorm and Thrust.

** The Vehicon Generals are fondly remembered. Whenever Beast Machines is referenced in later continuities, it's the Vehicons who usually get the nods. Of the Generals, Thrust is held in high regard because of his personality, and

** While the animation was an improvement, the redesigns for the Maximals weren't as liked. Whenever newer toylines/fiction reference the Beast Era, the more liked Vehicon designs are usually taken from this show, while the Maximal homages are based on their Beast Wars designs.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: And ''how.'' The changes to several of the character's personalities were a ''very'' sore point for fans of Beast Wars, for one.

* VindicatedByHistory: Thanks to the UnicronTrilogy's overall bad reception, this series is often seen in a much better light. It's hardly universal, of course, but still quite a feat considering the backlash it once received.

* DorkAge: Often considered one for the Beast Era of ''Transformers'', due to a massive tone shift from {{Dramedy}} to angsty VillainWorld story. It used to be considered this for ''Tansformers'' as a whole, until ''Anime/TransformersEnergon'' came along.

* JerkassWoobie: Nightscream has pretty solid reasons for being messed up... yet the fan consensus seems to be that his annoying qualities outweighed his sympathetic ones.

* TheScrappy: Nightscream.

* TheScrappy: Nightscream.Nightscream was this when the series was originally airing. The fans have mellowed towards him in recent years, but he's still a somewhat disliked character.


Added DiffLines:

** Similar to the series, Nightscream (who was a major Scrappy when the series first aired) has gained ''some'' fans in recent years, due to future characters being ''much'' less likeable. However, he's still a somewhat disliked character.

* 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.

** How the Hate Plague was dealt with. Since the original solution - the Matrix of Leadership - was out of the question, Optimus had to craft an answer that even the Transformers Wiki admits was pulled "out of his monkey butt".
