- Name's the Same:
- The Windblade in this story is not the same Windblade from the official The Transformers (IDW) comics, but an author-created character who actually predates the comics version by several years. The story's Windblade is also a Decepticon scientist, as opposed to the Autobot city-speaker Windblade of the comics.
- The Knights of Cybertron in The Power and the Glory are not the legendary ancient warriors from The Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye, but an anti-Decepticon terrorist organization that has taken on the title for grandiose purposes.
- Promoted Fanboy: ParadiseParrot, author of the Recursive Fanfiction Soar Onward (an alternate universe version of Thundercracker's Glory that adds Starscream's daughter to the cast, served as beta reader for The Power and The Glory.
- What Could Have Been:
- Early concepts for Thundercracker's Glory included a crossover with Star Wars, in which the Galactic Empire found a Cybertronian escape pod containing several orphaned sparklings and Darth Vader was somehow being drafted into taking care of them; and the same group of orphaned sparklings being abandoned on Cybertron and struggling to survive on their own.
- Glory's original planned name was Delta.
- The Power and the Glory features a scene where Glory visits Galvatron in prison and learns the truth about what happened to Thundercracker (or at least his body) after the Battle of Autobot City. As revealed in the closing author's notes, this is a loose adaptation of the planned ending of Glory and Honor, where it would have been used as a Sequel Hook.
