Where is Sarasims' village located? The people have tanned skin and a wide range of fashions, with some seemingly drawn from Native American clothes, and one man's beard and hat looks like Ancient Persian carvings. Others bear resemblance to the clothes Mongols wear in popular culture. Jump City, the Titan's home, is in North America, about where Los Angles is, so they are either Native American or Cyborg also traveled through space as well as time. But these people also fight with steel swords, not common to North America in 3000 BC.
What happened to Cyborg's emergency power supply?
If Sarasim's people discovered how to create electricity to charge Cyborg with a primitive water mill, then wouldn't the past have taken a huge leap with it's time-line? And if so, then why did the future remain unchanged? You'd think that there would have been flying cars or something.
How did Sarasim know that Krall was leading the final attack? He had transformed into a monster at that point, and Cyborg was the only one that saw it.
How could Cyborg understand and speak the language of Sarasim's people?
As was said, 3,000 B.C. was the beginning of the Bronze Age. However, Sarasim's tribe seemed to have a technology level far more advanced than that - they could work steel and build complex machinery that was not seen until the early Medieval Period.
When Cyborg and Sarasim were in that watch tower, Cyborg had his helmet on, and looked at Sarasim, the metal parts of his face were his regular skin color.
When Raven says, "beware," and is holding the waffle, her chakra is missing.
While Cyborg's battery is drained, and he is thrown into the river, some shots alternate between him having blue circuitry (indicating power) and the dull brown color (indicating no power).
One of Cyborg's hands got messed up, so you could see the tech inside it. But when he gets flipped to the ground by Krall, it's normal again. Then it switches back to being messed up.
Cyborg's metal piece around his eye kept changing from gray to white.
In the final battle sequence, Cyborg is standing waist-deep in the green muck in one shot, then is ankle-deep in the next shot, and in the next shot goes back to waist-deep.
Cyborg: (Brings up sonic cannon) The future says hi.
Cyborg: Don't do anything, don't touch anything, sci-fi rule number 1: You start messing with the past, you end up with monkeys ruling the future. From the future, comin' through!
Cyborg: The village, it's under attack! They need me!
Raven: It was kind of a one-way deal.
Raven: Evil beware. We have waffles.
Cyborg: I discovered electricity! (Charger blows up) Or not.
Cyborg: Man, you may be from the future, but you don't know a thing.
(Cyborg gets zapped and disappears)
Beast Boy: Before anybody says anything, that was totally not my fault.
Cyborg: Uh, Sarasim, if this doesn't go well tonight, there's something I need to tell you.
Sarasim: (Kisses him) You already have.
Cyborg: Guess I'm doing this the old-fashioned way!
Cyborg: Mega party sound, ultra plasma display, bay-shielded amps, and to top it off, a brand-new, hot-off-the-shelves, impossible-to-find, GAME STATION XL!!
Beast Boy: (Teary-eyed) It's... beautiful.
Sarasim: I am Sarasim, the leader of this tribe, and who is this "dude," of which you speak?
Cyborg: The longer I stay, the harder it is for me to leave.
Robin: All this stuff is nice, but will it help us fight crime?
Cyborg: Um, yes?
Starfire: And what does this crime-fighting device do? (Presses a button, waffles fly out)
Cyborg: (To the creatures Witch created) Monkeys or not, it's about time somebody went Bronze Age on your butts!
Cyborg: Out of my way!
The first time Cyborg has a romance with someone. He's the last Titan to do so. Robin-Starfire, Beast Boy-Terra, Raven-Malchior.
This is the first time Raven lets any Titan read her book.
This episode originally aired after "Episode 257-494" in Australia, as it's supposed to, according to production order.
After Cyborg busts his huge metal hand by hitting the dam, we actually see what used to be his regular-sized hand in robotic form.
YTV airdate: May 2, 2005.
When the future sign comes up, the statue of liberty is a guy with glasses, and the sun has a face.
As Cyborg's right arm is detachable, the destriction of the armour and look of a real hand shows that his left arm isn't detachable.
Raven's book had the same symbol as Sarasim's armor.
Sarasim bears a remarkable resemblance to Bumblebee.
Sarasim sounds similar to Sarah Simms, someone Cyborg had a romantic relationship with in the comics. However, it didn't really end in romance, just friendship. The names are also clear references; "Sarasim" - "Sarah Simms."
Sarasim's armor has a carving representing the moon on it, while Cyborg's has one representing the sun.
Raven has a book about Sarasim and her tribe, that was shown in the end of the episode.
This is the second time someone (Sarasim) has kissed Cyborg. The first time was in "Episode 257-494."
Raven once again displays her time altering powers when she pulls Cyborg through a vortex.
Cyborg's arm is attached by a tube in this episode.
Cyborg is zapped to 3000 B.C., which was the beginning of the Bronze Age. It was when people began creating tools out of bronze and copper.
Look Hard: In the "Mess with the past, and the future is ruled by monkeys" sequence, when Cyborg is poking 'Past' with a stick, Warp (baby) from "How Long Is Forever?" is seen in the corner.
This is the second time a Titan travels through time. Only Starfire went to the future in "How Long Is Forever?," and Cyborg goes into the past in this episode.
The face on the Statue of Liberty is Irineo Maramba - a storyboard artist for the series.
Episode Title: Cyborg the Barbarian
The episode title "Cyborg the Barbarian" is a reference to the Conan the Barbarian series of stories, comics, and movies.
Sarasim happened to be a play on of a character in the comics, appearing in "Terror of Trigon" briefly, however, in that her name was Sarah Simm and she was a great friend of Cyborg's (alias; Victor Stone).
Cyborg: Monkeys or not, it's about time someone went Bronze Age on your butt!
When Cyborg yells, "Monkeys or not, it's about time someone went Bronze Age on your butt!," is a paraphrase from a line in Pulp Fiction, "I'm gonna get medieval on your [the obvious expletive which will remain omitted]."
Green Minions: Appearance
The green minions in this episode bear a striking resemblance to the robotic beatle drones in another Cartoon Network program, Samurai Jack. The idea of a hero from another time period being ambushed by these beatle-like creatures is even more of a nod in that show's direction.
Krall's Attack: Exploding Wall
When Krall's minions attack the village, they blow out an entire wall on their way in. The way it blows is very similar to the way the wall of Helm's Deep was blown away in the movie, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.
Cyborg: Sci-fi rule #1: Mess with the past, and the future is ruled by monkeys.
Obvious reference to Planet of the Apes, in which apes take over the human race and rule the Earth.
Cyborg: From the future, comin' through!
When Cyborg attempts to run through the battle to get to a safe area, the scene shifts to look like an obvious parody of the Sega arcade game, Frogger, complete with the exact same sound effects.
Episode Title: Cyborg the Barbarian
The title is an obvious reference to the Conan the Barbarian franchise. Conan was created by Robert E. Howard in a series of fantasy stories published in the comic "Weird Tales" in the 1930s. The character got a revival in the 1970s with the classic Marvel Comics series and was later spun off into two films starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Conan remains a significant pop culture icon, and he continues to reappear in various artistic mediums.
Both the movie, AYCYKAC, and this episode feature a guy who is using electronics and is sent back to the past. They both meet a girl that they love. They both will have problems if they stay. They both try to make electricity, and both of them are thought of lowly (the boy is considered an evil wizard, and Cyborg is considered a coward), then both get treated like gods.
