Trivia / Transformers Armada

Go To

  • Executive Meddling: A large number of animation and dubbing problems could have been avoided if production hadn't been rushed so much thanks to Cartoon Network not signing off on the series without a certain number of episodes already finished.
  • Fan Nickname: "Squidhead," "Megamoose," "Shotty"...
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: The series on DVD was out of print for a long time and buying it would cost around $100, though it was easy to find for free in certain places on the Internet. In 2014 this finally changed when Shout! Factory did a rerelease of the show, and now it can be bought at more reasonable prices.
  • The Other Darrin:
    • Hot Shot was voiced by Brent Miller in Armada and Energon. After that, Kirby Morrow takes over in Cybertron.
    • Ted Cole replaces Paul Dobson as Sideways in Cybertron.
  • Role Reprise:
    • One of the highlights was getting David Kaye and Gary Chalk to play Megatron and Optimus, although technically both in the Beast Wars era were similar characters and not actual adaptations of the originals, as evidence that this is the first time Chalk played Optimus Prime.
    • In the Brazilian dub, José Santa Cruz and José Santanna reprise their roles as Megatron and Starscream, respectively, from the original cartoon, while Guilherme Briggs reprises his role as Optimus Prime from Transformers: Robots in Disguise.
  • What Could Have Been: Hot Shot was originally supposed to be Bumblebee, but as the trademark wasn't available at the time, his name was changed to Hot Shot. This would be fixed for Animated.
