    Due to his popularity within the fan-base, Dinobot has been given a place in the "Transformers Hall of Fame" as the fifth most iconic Transformer character of all time. He was the only Beast-former in the Hall's initial year, with the other four icons (Optimus Prime, Megatron, Bumblebee, and Starscream) originating from Transformers. It surprised (and also angered) many people that Dinobot managed to beat out other longtime fan favorites such as Soundwave, Grimlock, Shockwave, or even Devastator, since he was considered to be a relatively little-known character, especially outside of the fanbase. But his well-written deep personality and engaging development as a character secured him a well-deserved spot in the Hall. The following year, the Fans' Choice Award went to Waspinator, also hailing from this show. 2013 saw the induction of Beast Megatron into the Hall.

    It is never clarified what species the protohumans who appear in the series belong to. The scripts refer to them as Neanderthals; however, they seem to be based more closely on much earlier hominids, like Australopithecus. Considering that the show takes place four-million years ago, and that the protohumans just started learning how to use tools, this seems to be the most likely choice. Even so, during the course of two seasons (and largely due to the Maximals' influence), they seem to have already reached a considerably more advanced stage, casting doubt on their true belongings.
