      Jamie: No, that was you.

      Coop: You screwed up my warp-drive... (wheel skids again)

      Kiva: You did that too.

      Coop: And you made me miss the monster truck comeback of the century! (wheel skids yet again)

      Coop: Hey buddy, who are you calling a defiler?! (to Jamie) What's a defiler?

  • Notes

    • Because of a tape mixup, this episode was not shown until almost a year later than the rest of the episodes which all aired in 2004

    • The two top robots who were fighting to get Megas (their names were displayed... but I forgot them) are similar to Optimus Prime and Megatron in the G1 series of Transformers

    • Ending Credits: Jamie's dream is being displayed.

    • In this episode, Jamie thought that the Metal Maiden was a girl's rock band, when it was actually a sword.

    • In this episode, Coop pressed a button that claimed there were only five minutes left in the show.

    • In this episode it is revealed that Megas has an energy shield.

    • This episode originally made its debut on the UK Toonami channel.

    • When Megas is warping around in this episode, it flies by one of the planets that was seen in an earlier episode of the series.

  • Allusions

    • Dead or alive, you are coming with me: The mace-wielding robot quotes Murphy/Robocop from Robocop (1987).

    • Jamie's fantasy in this episode parodies a scene in the movie Escape from New York. It even has a bald version of Coop saying "You are the Duke! A number one!"

    • The Metal Maiden band that Jamie is thinking about is a reference to the band Iron Maiden.

    • In this episode, Carzilla looks very similar to Truckasaurus from The Simpsons.

    • In this episode, someone mentioned Azeroth. Azeroth is the name of the world in the Warcraft video game series.

    • The robots that attack Coop in this episode look very similar to several characters from the Transformers series.

    • One of the main robots in this episode looks very similar to one of the robots from the Manzerger Z series.
