[show]SPOILER: The characterizations and motives of the cast was developed gradually. - For example, the first season claims that Megatron merely wanted to get his hands on Energon and that he wasn't looking for Earth specifically, yet the second season reveals that he wanted to come to Earth to fulfill the commands of the original Megatron. - Terrorsaur in the first few episodes is a Starscream-like character who always wants to backstab Megatron, but this side of him gets dropped later on as Tarantulas became the "main" treacherous character. - Tarantulas himself only developed his mysterious traitor persona later on, and initially he's only characterized as an unpleasant scientist who's only concern is eating rather than having a personal agenda against the aliens. - Waspinator only became a lovable goof who always gets blown up because the writers hated him and didn't know what to do with him.
- Even though they are male characters, the animal forms of Waspinator, Tigatron and Inferno are a female wasp, and female tiger and a female ant respectively.
- Tarantulas' beast mode is an African wolf spider (not a tarantula, as his name would imply).
