** Of the toy-only characters who didn't make it into the show, Razorbeast is quite popular with fans. This is largely due to Simon Furman's usage of him in IDW's ''Beast Wars'' comics, where he's portrayed as a snarky and stern yet kind-hearted GuileHero. (And the fac that [[Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir Will Smith was looking for him since October.]]

** [[BigBad Megatron]] is a self-proclaimed tyrant and would-be GalacticConqueror, who named himself after his world's equivalent of TheAntichrist. A [[BadBoss user and abuser of his followers]], Megatron divides the world into enemies and pawns, killing or enslaving the former, and ruthlessly exploiting the latter. A gloating sadist, Megatron never kills anyone quickly when prolonged torture will do, [[WeHaveReserves considers his own allies expendable]], and hopes to bring Cybertron, and eventually the galaxy, under his heel. His more notable crimes include extracting half of Rampage's spark, placing it in a vise, and using it to torture Rampage into submission; ordering Dinobot to kill Quickstrike, one of Megatron's (relatively) more loyal soldiers, after Quickstrike lost to Dinobot in a sort of re-entrance exam into the Predacons (Dinobot refused); an aborted genocide of humanity's common ancestor; attempting to rewrite all of his history by killing the original Optimus Prime; and finally, sacrificing all his remaining troops in order to gain control of the ''Nemesis'' and set out to overrun the galaxy. His defeat doesn't stop him either - when he returns in ''WesternAnimation/BeastMachines'' he's gotten worse, picking up a serious [[AGodAmI god complex]] along the way. Seizing control of Cybertron, Megatron [[YourSoulIsMine extracts the sparks]] from everyone on the planet, reducing them to [[SoullessShell mindless drones]]. Accquiring a hatred of all organic life, Megatron [[OmnicidalManiac tries to scrub Cybertron clean of it]], resulting in the near destruction of all life, robotic and organic, on his home planet when his last mad grasp for power finally fails.

Added DiffLines:

** How much of Blackarachnia's personality is really her own and how much of it is the Predacon programming Tarantulas installed in her? [[spoiler:When she "died" and was "reborn" a Transmetal Maximal she cheerfully proclaimed "Even when I'm good I'm still bad" and indeed her personality was really not that different other than just being not evil and siding with the Maximals out or pragmatism, so it's possible that's just who she is... or maybe it was the Predacon personality Tarantulas installed in her, only now with the original Maximal programming restraining her more savage traits.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Rhinox laughing off his brief stint of being reprogrammed into a Predacon, and the other Maximals laughing it off with him (except former Predacon Dinobot) becomes a lot less funny [[spoiler:after ''Beast Machines'', where both he and Silverbolt are reprogrammed as evil Vehicons, which also makes it harder not to wince at Silverbolt's own NiceGuy personality in this series.]]

** Megatron's frequent annoyance with the ever-devoted Inferno arguably becomes even funnier with the knowledge that the former's voice actor DavidKaye took on the role of [[WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated Lugnut]]. If that's not enough, at one point Beast Wars Megatron asks (rhetorically) of his troops, "Eager to begin another [[MemeticMutation glorious]] Predacon day are we?"

*** It's also pretty hilarious that David Kaye voiced this series' version of Megatron when he would later voice Optimus Prime in ''Animated''.

* ItWasHisSled: [[spoiler: Dinobot dies]].



* ItWasHisSled: [[spoiler: Dinobot dies]].



* MagnumOpus: Considered to be this for ''Transformers'' by some fans (both the show and the toys) for it's rich story and characters. Also sometimes viewed as this for Mainframe Entertainment.
** For episodes, "Code of Hero" has that honor.

** There's [[RebuildOfEvangelion another franchise]] that has biomechanical humanoid mecha with the ability to transform to a ferocious animal form. It's even called Beast Mode.

* DracoInLeatherPants: Rampage has quite a few fans that focus on his sparse TragicMonster moments and downplay his vicious sadism and cannibalism. Even his next big "official" appearance in the TF Club fiction plays up his sympathetic points and depicts him as a deeply troubled, but still sympathetic person.

** "Transmutate". This episode has its share of fans who feel the story was dark, mature, and well-crafted while showing a different side of Rampage. Others, on the other hand, have felt that it was [[NiceJobBreakingItRivals too anti-climactic, morbid, and depressing]], [[ToughActToFollow especially coming hot of the heels of the universally acclaimed Code of Hero]].
