[show]Dinobot turns into a scaly, featherless Velociraptor, yet these dinosaurs were covered in feathers. This can't be considered an error, though: at the time the show was made, the general belief was that raptors were scaly saurians (a common perception of dinosaurs); the toy that Dinobot's character was meant to promote also had scales. While it can be argued that feathers were impossible to animate back then, other characters also had feathers, so this can't be considered a reason as to why Dinobot didn't have them.

- Voice actor Scott McNeil considers Beast Wars his best and favourite show, and his roles in it (Rattrap, Dinobot, Waspinator, Silverbolt) are the ones he is most proud of.
