    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (6)

      • Scorponok's optic sensor changes from red to yellow and back to red again, throughout this episode.

      • During the countdown, the voice that is heard is Elizabeth Carol Savenkoff's, the same voice used for the Predacon Computer. It was the Maximals who set up the bomb, so shouldn't it be the same voice who does the Maximal Computer instead (Ian James Corlett)?

      • Terrorsaur's voice seems to be squeakier in this episode.

      • Rhinox sounded like he said "Thanks Cheetah", instead of "Thanks Cheetor."

      • In 'The Web' Cheetor says "From now on, this cat is a team player!" But in this episode, he acts almost the same way as he did in 'The Web'.

      • When Cheetor first gets teleported to the Predacon base, Terrorsaur destroys it. Later, that same computer is fixed already, and they are using it several times.

    • QUOTES (6)

      • (After chasing Cheetor into the ventilation system)
        Scorponok: He's gone into the ventilators. You'd better report this to Megatron.
        Waspinator: Me? You're second-in-command!
        Scorponok: So make it an order!

      • (Dinobot stuffs Terrorsaur into a disposal unit)
        Terrorsaur: What are you doing?! We're partners!
        Dinobot: In case you had not realized, needle nose, I am not a team player.

      • (Terrorsaur has been transported into the Maximal base)
        Terrorsaur: Where'd he go?! Where'd I go?
        Dinobot: Welcome to enemy arms, my former comrade.

      • (Cheetor has been transported into the Predacon base)
        Terrorsaur: Welcome to the dark side. Terrorsaur, terrorize!
        Cheetor: Cheetor, maxi... did that already.

      • (After a lightning strike)
        Cheetor: Was that supposed to scare me? (A second bolt strikes) Yep!

      • (Response to Optimus' concern over an energon storm)
        Cheetor: Not a problem fellow beasts.

    • NOTES (2)

      • When Dinobot disposes of Terrorsaur, you can hear the sound of a toliet flushing when he's ejected.

      • Terrorsaur's comment, "Welcome to the dark side" has long been viewed by fans of the series as the point when the name of the Predacon ship is revealed. Although later Hasbro material did identify the vessel as the "Darksyde," ship is never again referred to by this name within the series itself and the statement could just as easily be interpreted as Terrorsaur's way of trying to be ominious and intimitating to Cheetor.
