Waspinator is the only Predacon to survive both series. Strange for the one who always seemed to get destroyed every episode.
The celebrating Transformers coming over the hill in the final scene are obviously repetitions of the same CGI model.
When all the drones are coming towards the giant Megatron head, Nightscream says that they'll be there in a few minutes, but throughout both Beast Wars and Beast Machines they have used "cycles" or a variation of that word to describe an amount of time.
The very first time in both series that Rattrap said something romantic, without any sarcasm entailed. A big step for Rattrap. Further shows the strengthened bond between him and Botanica.
The Transformer body that attacks Blackarachnia and Silverbolt looks like a severely damaged version of Dinobot from Beast Wars, though it couldn't actually be him.
Although for a short while, Strika and Obsidian joined the Maximal side. For the very first time in both the Beast Wars series and the Beast Machine series, not once did Rattrap complain about new allies who were former enemies (again for only a short awhile).
Thrust pronounces the name of the Autobot's home base/city as "Iocon", a misspelling by the writer. According to Transformers, the name of the city is actually pronounced and spelled as "Iacon".
For the first time in this series Megatron says his famous catchphrase: "Yeeessss?"
The Maximals travel to Iacon, former central city for the Autobots.
The pile that Thrust is buried under at the episode's start includes parts from Vehicon jet drones, yet none are ever seen fighting.
At the end when Megatron completely destroys Botanica's ship and the plants she brings back with her is the only time in the series that the Megatron 'head' transforms into a ship.
Botanica arrives in an ancient Autobot Shuttle like the one the Maximals found on the Ark.
Silverbolt's robot mode has some aspects gleaned from the look of a Japanese samurai like the tied back hair. Going along with his new look, Silverbolt's code of honor now includes revenge and self-doubt much like Bushido (the samurai code of honor) instead of the absolutist and philosophical honor more alike of Europe's knights in the Middle Ages.
Silverbolt's current attitude of anger and resentment contradicts how he acted in "The Catalyst", wherein he was his typically heroic self.
Savage/Noble is seen alive in this episode, but he is more animalistic in nature now that Megatron has separated from him. He is shown with a slight affinity for Nightscream.
Jetstorm's Spark is reformatted as Silverbolt, in a new Techno-Organic condor body.
This episode reveals that Megatron is Savage/Noble. As he explains, he finally managed to separate his robot form from his organic self, but his spark remained in the organic half.
Noble's flashback is EXACTLY the same as Nightscream's.
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.
