Trivia / Transformers: Cyberverse

Go To

  • All-Star Cast: The Japanese dub has Aoi Yuuki, Tetsu Inada, Satoshi Tsuruoka, Ryohei Kimura, Takehito Koyasu and Shigeru Chiba.
  • Billing Displacement: The cast is listed in alphabetical order. Interestingly enough, it's ordered by surname.
  • Darkhorse Casting: Downplayed. The cast of this series is composed of New York non-union voice artists, known for anime like the recent seasons of Pokémon and the Yu-Gi-Oh! spin-off series. Some of the VAs, like Jeremy Levy and Jake Tillman, did not have significant roles in animation prior to this show, with Tillman being a former Vine star who moved to YouTube after the former shut down; doing an Optimus Prime voice on The Ellen DeGeneres Show is what landed him the role in the first place.

  • International Coproduction: The show was produced in United States' Allspark Animation and Ireland's Boulder Media, with the animation outsourced in India's Xentrix Studios.
  • The Other Darrin: In the Latin American Spanish dub, Optimus Prime's voice actor, Alfonso Ramirez, tragically passed away at 2019, so a new voice actor would be needed for him.
  • Prop Recycling: The gladiator from "Megatron is My Hero" uses Grimlock's early promotional model.
  • Role Reprisal:
  • Remake Cameo: The Japanese dub has a interesting case of this:
    • Aoi Yuuki, who previously voiced Shatter in the dub of Bumblebee, now voices Windblade. Hilariously enough, while the former was a Decepticon, Windblade is an Autobot instead here.
    • While technically could fit in the Role Reprisal part of sorts, Takehito Koyasu (as Optimus Prime) previously voiced Optimus Primal from the dub of Beast Wars.
  • Screwed by the Network:
    • Just like Transformers: Robots in Disguise, the show was hit with a 6:30 am EST timeslot on Saturdays and no TV advertising thanks to the network's legendarily-unhealthy obsession with Teen Titans Go! (it's worth noting that, unlike with RID 2015, it premiered at a time when TTG was severely declining in popularity and variety was being restored to the schedule in an attempt to lure back longtime viewers who jumped ship for Nickelodeon and Disney XD when TTG dominated the schedule). Its premiere on September 1, 2018 was overshadowed by the premiere of Total DramaRama. As a slight consolation, though, it's at least easier to watch than RiD2015 was in that episodes debut on the CN app each Friday, and are available On Demand as well. Additionally, Hasbro uploads every new episode to their official YouTube page shortly after they air on television. It also helps that the US debut this time was not behind literally the entire EU as well.

    • In Asia, the original English episodes are completely marked as private and viewers can only watch the Malay-dubbed version, meaning English speakers in Asian countries will have to turn to unofficial streaming sites.
  • Short Run in Peru:
    • For the first season:
      • From "Megatron is My Hero" to "Maccadam's", Canada has overtaken the United States in airing these episodes, airing two episodes per week. The entire first chapter would have been aired until November 2018, but the week after they aired "Maccadam's", they switched with reruns at the last minute.
      • "Sabotage" and "Teletraan-X" were available first on YouTube TV and On Demand two weeks before CN aired them.
      • "King of the Dinosaurs" and "The Extinction Event" first aired in France, also one to two weeks before the US premiere.
      • "Matrix of Leadership", "Siloed", "Awaken Sleeping Giants" and "Eruption" aired in Singapore, again one to two weeks before the US release.
    • The second season aired faster in France, Australia, New Zealand and the Netherlands, with four episodes per week.
  • Talking to Himself:
    • For the English cast:
      • Ryan Andes as Grimlock and Shockwave.
      • Billy Bob Thompson as Wheeljack and Starscream.
      • Dick Terhune as Maccadam and Prowl.
      • Todd Perlmutter as Ratchet and additional voices (for the latter, alongside Ashleigh Chrisena Ricci and Haley Carter Chapel).
      • Jeremy Levy as Bumblebee and Rack'n'Ruin.
      • Mike Rose voiced both Teletraan-1 and Teletraan-X in "The Extinction Event".
    • For the Japanese cast:
      • Tetsu Inada as Grimlock, Shockwave and Dirge.
      • Yoji Ueda as Wheeljack, Ramjet, Soundwave, Acid Storm and Teletraan-1.
      • Akeno Watanabe as Shadow Striker and Slipstream.
      • Satoshi Tsuruoka as Starscream and Thundercracker.
  • Throw It In!: Acid Storm started as a male Seeker but changed to a female appearance after having a female voice actor cast in the role. Later episodes flip-flopped except when there were spoken lines. While this was likely an animation error, writer Mae Catt decided to put down Acid Storm as genderfluid, which has been met positively.
  • What Could Have Been:
  • Working Title: Transformers Origins.
  • Word of God:
  • Write Who You Know: Randolph Heard based the dog seen in "Sabotage", whom Bumblebee sees in his memories, on his real life French bulldog.
