  • Trivia

    • Despite spending time being evil, Rhinox apparently "paid" for his transgressions and joined the Matrix. When he does so, he appears before Primal as he did in the Beast Wars, despite devoting himself to the title Tankor.

    • Even though two new Maximals join Primal's team with reformatted bodies, the phrase, "I am transformed" is no longer used for the rest of the series.

    • During Optimus Primal's journey through the Matrix, he sees brief glimpses of all the new characters that will appear during this season.

  • Quotes

    • Rattrap: Anybody get the number of that low-lifted, that run me over?
      Cheetor: Stay sharp people, we can't be sure all of Megatron's goons are offline.
      Nightscream: Forget Megatron, where's the monkey?

    • Rattrap: Oh yeah, this is interesting, yes.
      Cheetor: Whaddya see?
      Rattrap: Zip, zero, zilch, and a whole lotta nadda.

  • Notes

    • At the end of season 1's finale, it cuts to the credits after Primal's fingers dissolve. Here in the recap footage, he continues with, "If this is the will of the Matrix, then so be it!"
