    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • In the first part, when Tigatron says '...the Predacons will be able to destroy the Maximal base.' Rattrap and Cheetor shout 'WHAT?' to each other, whereas during the recap at the beggining of this episode, when Tigatron says that same sentence, Cheetor and Optimus look at each other and Rattrap pulls a puzzled face.

      • In the last episode, they show us some clips in this episode, a couple of things don't match: 1)In the clips, Tigatron and Airazor turn around to see a boulder right them Airazor makes a shocked noise but in this episode she doesn't make a noise at all. 2)In the clips, Tigatron says 'The Predacons have almost reach the Obelix. We must stops them!' in a high pitched voice but in this episode he says that sentence in a low tone.

    • NOTES (3)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Tigatron: In that case, the lady shall ride a tiger.
        Possibly a reference to "The Lady, or the Tiger" by Frank R. Stockton.

      • Optimus Primal: "It's an old story."
        The speech made by Tigatron, and Optimus Primal's comment afterward, are both references to many creation myths and legends. The most famous of these paradises is perhaps the Garden of Eden, from which Adam and Eve were expelled after disobeying God's command. It is perhaps this paradise the Maximals are alluding to.
