* CompleteMonster: [[CoDragons The Beast Generals]], the malevolent servitors of the world-devouring [[BigBad Beast Planet]] who help their master [[GreaterScopeVillain The Beast]] scourge entire solar systems and destroy all worlds within them, each qualify in their own right:
** [[ManipulativeBitch Lamprey]] is a master of deceit and subterfuge who weakens worlds from the inside out through complex gambits, occasionally pausing to murder people who cross her path for little other reason than [[ForTheEvulz to amuse herself]]. Lamprey introduces herself tricking Emperor Femur into installing a device meant to drain all the life from Planet Bone. After this, Lamprey possesses Tekla and tries to use her to destroy the Alliance from the inside out, contenting herself with subjecting her to horrific MindRape of her planet's destruction and trying to slowly kill her from the inside once this fails. After this fails, Lamprey murders a resident of Planet Fire and pins it on Jade's hands, intending for her to be horribly executed by being dipped into a fall of lava. Lamprey's final crimes in the series [[EvilIsPetty stem purely from petty spite]]: Seeking revenge against Tekla, Lamprey has her Beast drones attack a bar with the intent to kill everyone inside, personally disintegrates Captain Blaze once he gets in her way, and furiously attempts to kill everyone who stands between her and Tekla before her own demise.
** [[TheBrute Blokk]] is a brutish warrior who firmly believes in the power of absolute force over everything else, preferring to overrun worlds through his armada to destroy all they see whilst basking in the carnage. Blokk's repeated attempts to attack the planets in the Cluster result in numerous deaths and the successful destruction of Planet Jungle. Blokk personally attempts to trick Cryos into killing his own daughter whilst leaving his planet vulnerable, and grows more and more vicious after his repeated punishments at the hand of the Beast. In the finale of the series, Blokk takes over Planet Rock by force by besting and [[HeroKiller killing Lord Mantle]], while promising to give the Alliance members he's captured--[[WouldHurtAChild two children among them]]--a slow death at the Beast's hands. Once he's left stranded on Rock, Blokk slaughters his way to Rock's World Engine, personally executes Feldspar, and sets the entire planet on a collision course with the nearest star out of sheer spite.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1JuAFiNmuNg The main title]] is suitably epic.

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenBase: Fans of the show generally can't decide amongst themselves whether Femur is an [[TheScrappy obnoxious line-stealing distraction]] from the main plot, or a much needed comic relief character in an otherwise nihilistic cosmic horror series.

* GeniusBonus: As with all MainframeEntertainment productions, classic quotations and references abound throughout the series, particularly in episode titles. ''J'accuse'' deals with a murder accusation against respected soldier Jade and ''Ragnarok'' brings about the end of the traditional Cluster society. As with ReBoot and WesternAnimation/BeastWars, Mainframe shows that being a children's show does not mean intelligence is left at the door.

* TheScrappy: Lord Mantle is a warmongering {{Jerkass}} whose attempts to usurp leadership of the Alliance from Graveheart and establish Rock as the supreme power in the Cluster only make things worse for the Alliance. Granted, it seems he was an ''[[HateSink intentional]]'' example.

* CompleteMonster: The Beast Planet. It eats planets without a care, after all.



* HilariousInHindsight: A sci-fi CosmicHorrorStory about an unstoppable mechanical EldritchAbomination where the heroes have to unite a divided galaxy to fight the looming threat? [[Franchise/MassEffect Sounds familiar]].
** A mechanical monster planet whose first shown act is eating a world of living robots, only to have their one survivor deliver exposition on its identity to the heroes later? [[TransformersTheMovie Deja vu]].

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: A number of Femur's lines. There's one scene in episode 8 where he seems to be telling Pyrus about this time he ended up in a threesome.
