** The net result is the same either way. Take your pick.

** In all likelyhood, Red "Autobot" Energon and Green "Decepticon" Energon just don't mix well together. They're all derived from the same base substance, and it all works to power things, but they and their energy emissions do very bad things to eachother when they mix. Going from Bot to Con likely involves being emptied, cleaned, and reconfigured to run on "their" energon.

** Assuming we're talking about the TV show, there seemed to be two varieties of energon. The green Energon used by 'cons is harmful to Autobots only, hence green energon gas letting the 'cons take over Cybertron in the space of one episode. The red Energon used by Autobots is harmful to Depticons only, hence all the various energon weaponry (towers, grids, etc.) in the first half of the series. ''Why the hell'' it should be this way was never adequately explored. Presumably, if Autobot energon were released in gas form, it'd be harmful to 'cons.

But, presumably, if Autobot energon were released in gas form, it'd be harmful to 'cons.Decepticons. As for Omnicons, it's established that generations of being energon-forgers have given them immunity to energon radiation. The energon gas never affects them. And no, there'd be no reason for the Dinobots to be any different. As Autobots, Autobot energon is good, Decepticon energon is bad.

Added DiffLines:

**Where'd Overload ''come from in the first place?'' He was just ''there.''
**Red Alert returns. Of course, Cybertron's a big planet, so it could be that they're all active somewhere offscreen. AllThereInTheManual answers the question for some of them (basically, if you aren't in TFE or TFC, but have a repaint in the toyline, what you got up to in the meantime, presumably after taking on this new paint job, will be mentioned on the package. For example, if we take the packaging for the green version of Demolishor at its word, when he found Megs was back again, he decided ScrewThisImOuttaHere and remained on Cybertron, helping deal with the [[HordeOfAlienLocusts Scrapmetals]].)

Added DiffLines:

*'''Decepticon Warp Gates.''' At least, in Energon and Cybertron. (Distinct from Space Bridges, which look different.) 'Cons seem to be able to just summon portals purely at will, with no apparatus for creating them on either side of the portal. What's up with those?

Added DiffLines:

* Where did Scavenger, Hoist, Blurr, Sideswipe, Red Alert and Overload all bugger off to?


* it is now official in both the US and Japan that "Cybertron" is indeed a sequel series to "Armada" and "Energon". so does that mean the Unicron Singularity retcon the events of "Armada" and "Energon" or did it just change the characters perceptions of history?

** I don't remember exactly what the context was when this was established, but I'd imagine it had something to do with the Terrorcons and/or energon refinement (remember that Terrorcons and Omnicons produce different omnicon that seems to work different ways). I'm not sure why the Dinobots would be special in this regard.

Added DiffLines:

*Speaking of mini-cons, the Star Saber is a legendary, tide-of-war-turning weapon, right? When put together with the Skyboom Shield and Requiem Blaster you can get EarthShatteringKaboom level power, right? Bearing that in mind... on Mars City, we meet pee-yellow repaints of the Star Saber minicons, who turn into a pee-yellow Star Saber of their own that apparently isn't ''the'' Star Saber. And... this is never commented on by anyone, or ever made to make ''any damn sense.'' What the slag?
