* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Rampage. Is he a twisted, sinister monster, or a tortured, tormented misfit? "Both" is an option, but between the other two options, there was a voice for each... and there still will be if you bring up the topic in the right place.

** "Optimal Situation". A decent action-packed Season 3 opener or an [[{{Anticlimax}} anti-climactic]] finish to "The Agenda" trilogy, and the beginning of the end where the show become more [[ExecutiveMeddling toy-oriented]]?

** 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 fact that [[Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir Will Smith was looking for him since October.]])

* FauxSymbolism: During [[spoiler:the final battle between Megatron and Optimus Primal]], they start quoting passages from the [[HollywoodApocrypha Code of Primus]].



** In "Call of the Wild", Terrorsaur jokingly states, "Hunting from the air with automatic weapons—now ''that's'' a sport!". Some took note of this later because of a few prominent [[SarahPalin Republican]] [[RickPerry Governors]] would come to echo this sentiment, though OlderThanYouThink can also apply.

** In his very last words of the entire series, Rattrap muses with a smirk, "And you know what the best part is? We don't have to see Megatron's ugly butt again 'till we get back to Cybertron!" [[WesternAnimation/BeastMachines How right you are, Rattrap]]. [[CrapsackWorld How right you are]].
** 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.]]

* SpecialEffectsFailure: The early episodes (obviously, due to technology limitations) look like crap, there's also several other moments which combine this with OffModel (such as Rattrap reverting to his old CG model in ''Code of Hero''). Plus there's seams on several of organic beast modes if you look closely.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: In the third season, the writers focused on Blackarachnia's redemption arc and while she was clearly meant to be rooted for, there were several factors that worked against her and she didn't quite come off as a sympathetic or fully likeable character. For one thing, Blackarachnia complained multiple times how the Maximals didn't trust her but she had spent most of the first two seasons attacking the Maximals and unlike Dinobot, she had much more bad blood with them. Plus, she had previously been the one who had (unintentionally) led Megatron to the Ark in the first place in her quest to get all the power of the Ark for herself, allowing Megatron a chance to try to assassinate Optimus Prime and create a timestorm so when she finally turned against Megatron out of self-preservation, she didn't exactly build a strong foundation of trust with the Maximals to begin with. There was also the fact that she didn't act any differently under the Maximals than she did Megatron, secretly stealing equipment from the ship and the Transmetal driver Depth Charge had tried to throw into the lava to work her own agenda in secrecy. And despite some mistrust between her and the Maximals, they did make some attempts to give her a chance because in "Proving Grounds," Rattrap did relent and allow Silverbolt to go retrieve Blackarachnia without snitching on them, despite the dislike he had for her at the time. At the end of the episode, Optimus himself tells Blackarachnia that the Maximals had no plans of turning her into Maximal and the choice to change her programming was hers alone.\\

Later on in BeastMachines, Blackarachnia would attack Rattrap and call him a traitor when he made a weapons deal with Megatron, despite being a former Predacon herself and having an opportunity to reach out to Rattrap and understand what drove him to such lengths. She also forcibly changes [[spoiler: Jetstorm]] back into Silverbolt despite expecting characters like Silverbolt and Optimus to give her the chance to make her own choices. Given all the things that have happened and will happen in the sequel series, Blackarachnia in the third season of Beast Wars can come off as less of a sympathetic [[AntiHero Anti-Heroine]] trying to find her place in life and more of a whiny, entitled hypocrite who's not willing to extend to others the same chances and opportunities based on free will and individual sovereignty that she expects to receive herself.

* [[GiantSpider Tarantulas]] is Megatron's EvilGenius, and a schemer and [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder backstabber]] second-to-none. Planted as TheMole in Megatron's operation by the Predacon SecretPolice, Tarantulas is a cackling MadScientist, who enjoys performing gruesome experiments on his victims, and [[VillainousGlutton eating anything or anyone]] he catches in his giant webs, organic or [[ImAHumanitarian robotic]]; he admits to enjoying the act itself more than the meal. He brainwashes several Maximal protoforms into becoming Predacons, most notably Blackarachnia and Inferno, and eventually reveals that he hopes to [[TheStarscream usurp control of the team]] from Megatron. Tarantulas later exploits and {{Mind Rape}}s Blackarachnia, leaving her with a paranoid terror of him, and later swears a vendetta against her, promising to [[DomesticAbuse hunt the other spider down and kill her for daring to defy him]]. He tries to destroy the Ark, which would [[TimeCrash create a time paradox]] and lead to the extinction of the Transformers as a species. Ultimately betraying both sides, Tarantulas is revealed to be descended from neither Autobot nor Decepticon, and he attempts to use alien technology to [[OmnicidalManiac wipe out all factions]], swearing that when he's done with his own species, he will return and [[FinalSolution commit genocide]] against the aliens themselves. Void of loyalty or conscience, Tarantulas makes even [[EvenEvilHasStandards his own nominal allies uneasy]], a fact that he is [[CardCarryingVillain downright proud of]].
