Beast Wars: Transformers

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In "Deep Metal" (Season 3), Depth Charge fights Rampage on the beach. Throughout the whole episode, Depth Charge has four fingers. But in a shot when DC doubles over in pain to clutch his wounds, he has five fingers.

Season 1 generally

Continuity mistake: In the episode "The Web", the tarantula has Cheetor trapped in a stasus web that sucks the energy from his life force and is viewed on a machine. A couple of scenes later, Cheetors life bars are very low on the machine, but when Rattrap comes to save him, the bars are full again, although Cheetor is still dying.

Beast Wars: Part 2 - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: At the very end all the Maximals are together watching the mountain explode, but when Primal yells "Beast Wars" the camera quickly zooms away and only he and Dinobot are standing there, the others have disappeared.

Coming of the Fuzors (2) - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: During the battle at the beginning there is a shot of Tarantulas and Waspinator appearing with Megatron commenting on how reinforcements have arrived implying that they had just got there. The problem is, the previous episode already established them as having arrived before the battle had begun, and they had even been shown fighting before their suppossed "arrival" mid battle.

Season 2 generally

Plot hole: Series 2, Episode 11, The Agenda (1). The Tripredacus Council explains that Ravage will be able to find Megatron and the others by tracing the transwarp wavefront back through time to its source. If he truly did follow it back to when it started he would have arrived moments after Optimus destroyed the alien weapon in "Other Voices: Part Two" which created it, yet he arrives considerably farther in the future.

Season 2 generally

Factual error: Megatron tells Ravage that the Golden Disc was launched aboard the Voyager spacecraft, just as the Great War between Autobots and Decepticons began. Either Megatron is wrong or Cybertonian history is wrong, because Voyager was launched in 1977, and the Great War didn't begin until 1984 (the first season of The Transformers), seven years later. The disc can be read by lasers, but it was in fact an analog recording (as digital recording did not exist until the early 1980s with the compact disc). Just as well, the disc was only twelve inches wide; it looks much bigger in Beast Wars.

Cheetor: We've got to stop them before they reach the base.
Ratrap: That's your department, Sky Cat. Fire up. We'll be right behind you.
Dinobot: My weapon is depleted.
Cheetor: I need a running start.
Ratrap: Criminy, the pair of ya! I've gotta DO everything?

More quotes from Beast Wars: Transformers

Season 2 generally

Trivia: The three Predacons who make up the Tripredacus Council are supposed to be Cicadacon, Ram Horn, and Sea Clamp, the three characters that combine to form the Beast Wars action figure Tripredacus. It was production company Mainframe's intention to make its show counterparts resemble its respective action figures, but there wasn't time to fully design them. This is also why the character designs look "simple" in comparison to other characters on the show.
