Changes from the Comic

  • The comic rarely had Cybertronian forms for character that transform into Earth objects or wildlife, portraying the toy models instead. This was avoided in the cartoon for continuity purposes.
    • On a related note: In Aerialbots over America!, Megatron states that he modified the Insecticons' alternate forms to resemble Earth insects (and gave them the ability to shrink), and in their debut comic The Smelting Pool! they already had mechanical insect alt. modes. Needless to say that error was corrected.
  • Red Alert & Inferno being on the Ark was primarily due to their involvement in two UK stories where they both appeared seperately. Red's was The Enemy Within.
  • The Nemesis was never named in the original comic or cartoon, only retroactively given the name from Beast Wars: Transformers.
  • In the show, just like in the original cartoon, the Ark 's crash was an accident. However, on the comic: Optimus Prime deliberately set the Ark on a suicide course to crash onto Earth, fearing the secrets the Ark's computer Auntie falling into Decepticon hands. It was changed on the grounds this was a stupid decision.
  • While in the original comic the Constructicon leadership was vague, here Scrapper is definitely the leader.
  • In the show, it was confirmed that the Man of Iron's fellow crewmates in all died in the crash. As such, Optimus Prime has Jazz blow up the ship to kill the Decepticons sent to England. However, the ship's crew were unaccounted for in the original comic. This was changed due to the fact that this is uncharacteristically cold-hearted of Prime considering the comic's circumstances.
  • As the episodes in the adaptation, compared to the original comic, are out of order: Megatron being found by the Decepticons in The Enemy Within did not actually take place in the comic
  • As Sunstreaker was killed by Shockwave before the events of The Enemy Within and Raiders of the Last Ark, his role in their plots were replaced by Inferno.
  • The Guardian droid destroyed by Windcharger in Raiders of the Last Ark wasn't the same one first seen in Decepticon Dam-Busters!
  • Bumblebee wasn't in the repair bay in The Icarus Theory as he was already repaired before that point.
  • Thundercracker replaced Scavenger on Soundwave's team in Dinobot Hunt.
  • Inferno was not orginally apart of the team tracking down Snarl, also in Dinobot Hunt!.
    • On a related note, Red Alert was added to the team tracking down Slag.
  • Buzzsaw, Frenzy, Laserbeak, Rumble, Soundwave, Spectro, Spyglass, Thundercracker, and Viewfinder were all added to Grimlock's dream in Victory.
  • Red Alert and Inferno were not involved in the battle in Rock and Roll-Out!
  • The Plight of the Bumblebee! comic didn't make clear who was the other Seeker in the group of Decepticons hunting Bumblebee (most probably Skywarp). So they included both Skywarp and Thundercracker to avoid confusion.
  • Cliffjumper, Gears, Hound, Mirage, and Skids all weren't part of the Autobot team rescuing Bumblebee in Plight of the Bumblebee!
  • Snarl wasn't physically present with the other Dinobots in Second Generation!
  • Cliffjumper, Hound, Ironhide, and Mirage didn't orginally appear in Command Performances!
  • The episode form of Target: 2006 was renamed Target: 2005, and all references to 2006 were also changed to accomodate.
  • Cliffjumper was uninvolved in the events of Target: 2006.
  • In Target: 2006: it was never said who was the tenth member of the Ten Deadliest Killers. It was only implied with Astrotrain. Here, he is confirmed to be a member.
  • Also due to his role as Executive Officer during his time under Straxus' leadership, Shrapnel is leader of the Insecticons like in the orginal cartoon.
  • Originally, Optimus Prime wiped the Aerialbots' minds clean after their first mission, even Silverbolt's. You can imagine why that was replaced by Optimus using the Matrix to complete the other Aerialbots' programming.
  • In Prey!, Wheeljack is among the Autobots who think Optimus Prime is actually dead, despite his involvement in the facade.
  • For some reason Whirl never reappeared with the Wreckers after Distant Thunder! in the comics. Needless to say, he stayed around in the cartoon.
  • Silverbolt was also orginally apart of the Autobot search party in Prey!, but for continuity reasons was replaced by Mirage.
    • On a related note, for some reason, the Aerialbots didn't appear in the Fallen Angel comic (and thus arrive at the Ark in Resurrection!) despite being among the Autobots captured by RAAT.
  • Thundercracker and Frenzy didn't appear in the Fallen Angel comic, Resurrection!, or Gone but Not Forgotten!
  • Bluestreak, Cliffjumper, Divebomb, Gears, Grapple, Hoist, Huffer, Inferno, Mirage, Rampage, Red Alert, Sideswipe, Tantrum, Thundercracker, Tracks, Trailbreaker, Whirl, and Windcharger all didn't appear in Resurrection!
  • In the original Afterdeath! comic, Optimus Prime's mind was stored in a floppy disk. As if th(ose) stor(ies) weren't embarrasing enough.
  • In In Gone but Not Forgotten!, Blast Off was depicted actually joining the convoy. Of cars. Traveling from Wyoming to Florida. While flying in shuttle mode. Down U.S.-1 at less than 100 mph. And yet, the Decepticons called Megatron mad for expecting an Autobot attack..?
  • On a related note: Breakdown and Wildrider didn't appear in In Gone but Not Forgotten!
  • Bluestreak, Brawn, Bumblebee, Cliffjumper, Gears, Hound, Huffer, Inferno, Ironhide, Jazz, Mirage, Red Alert, Silverbolt, Trailbreaker, and Windcharger all didn't appear in Funeral for a Friend!

    • And Blot originally appeared in Broken Glass!, before his fellow Terrorcons.
  • Firebolt was called Sparks in the comic.
  • Dirge replaces Blot's role in Headhunt!
  • Chase didn't appear along with his fellow Throttlebots in Ladies' Night!
  • Breakdown (for continuity purposes) and Razorclaw are replaced in Sky Lynx's flashback in Spacehikers! by Skywarp and Octane.
  • Air Raid, Groove, Slingshot, and Streetwise didn't appear alongside their fellow Aerialbots and Protectobots in Spacehikers!
  • Snarl didn't appear alongside his fellow Dinobots in The Legacy of Unicron
  • Jetfire replaces Scattershot's role in The Legacy of Unicron!
    • On a related note: Astrotrain also replaces Hun-Gurrr's role in The Legacy of Unicron!
    • On another related note: Trailbreaker & Red Alert replce Hot Spot and Blades in The Legacy of Unicron!
  • Drag Strip, Motormaster, and Wildrider only appeared as apart of Menasor in The Legacy of Unicron!
  • The Sparkabots were called the Sparkler Mini-Bots in the UK comics.
  • Overbite was called Jawbreaker in his debut appearance from Enemy Action!, as well as Salvage!
  • Astrotrain, Blitzwing, Brawl, Breakdown, the Constructicons, Dead End, Dirge, Divebomb, Frenzy, Headstrong, the Insecticons, Laserbeak, Motormaster, Octane, Onslaught, the Reflector trio, Swindle, Tantrum, Thundercracker, Vortex, and Wildrider all didn't appear in Enemy Action!
  • Mixmaster didn't appear alongside his fellow Constructicons in Toy Soldiers!
  • Astrotrain replaces Blitzwing's role in Toy Soldiers!, resulting in a more practical way of transporting the stolen girders in the issue.
  • All the Steelhaven Crew and Autobot Nebulans (except the 1987 Headmasters) didn't appear in Trial by Fire!
  • Bombshell, Bonecrusher, Boomer, Drag Strip, Flintlock, Holepunch, Landfill, Long Haul, Mixmaster, Motormaster, Quickmix, Rampage, Ricochet, Scoop, Scrapper, Silencer, Thundercracker, Tracer, and Wildrider all didn't appear in The Desert Island of Space!
  • Overbite's beast mode limbs were missing in Salvage!
  • The medic of the Nemesis (who disappeared for years after the start of the series) replaces Snaptrap's role in Salvage!
  • Bludgeon, Doubleheader, Longtooth, Octopunch, Pincher, and Stranglehold didn't appear in Pretender to the Throne!
  • Roadbuster only appeared in a flashback in Legion of the Lost!
    • On a related note: he didn't appear at all in Meltdown! or the Wrecking Havoc comic
  • Chainclaw, Cloudburst, Divebomb, Doubleheader, Fireflight, Hosehead (and thus Lug), Landfill (and thus Flintlock & Silencer), Landmine, Longtooth, Mixmaster, Nightbeat (and thus Muzzle), Pincher, the Protectobots (excluding First Aid), Quickmix (and thus Boomer & Ricochet), Rampage, Red Alert, Scoop (and thus Holepunch & Tracer), the Seacons, Siren (and thus Quig), Splashdown, Strafe, and Warpath all didn't appear in Totaled!
    • On a related note: the combiner teams never assumed their combined forms in Totaled!, either.
  • An error in The Cosmic Carnival comic on the Steelhaven being called the Skyhammer is fixed in the episode adaptation.
  • Afterburner, Blast Off, Blot, Bonecrusher, Brawl, Breakdown, Cutthroat, Dead End, Divebomb, Drag Strip, Fireflight, First Aid, Freeway, Groove, Headstrong, Hook, Hot Spot, Lightspeed, Long Haul, Rippersnapper, Rollbar, Scavenger, Searchlight, Silverbolt, Sinnertwin, Slingshot, Swindle, and Tantrum all didn't appear in Space Pirates!
    • On a related note: Blast Off replaces Vortex's role at the end of Space Pirates!
  • Ramjet & Thrust swap roles in Space Pirates!
    • On a related note: Scrapper and Mixmaster swap roles in Space Pirates!
  • As Inferno was apart of the original Ark crew in the show's universe, and thus on Earth and not present when Xaaron created this unit, there had to be a reason for Inferno to become apart of the unit in Firebug! for continuity purposes.
  • Considering the continuity nightmare of the backstory of the mini-cassettes from Club Con! (see here for more details), this concept was radically altered in multiple ways.
    1. Instead of two mini-cassettes, their information is stored on one data disk.
    2. Instead of being sent to Earth, the information instead went missing under mysterious circumstances.
    3. None of the Transformers depicted in the cassettes' backstory (Beachcomber, Defensor, Perceptor, and Sunstreaker) were involved in the episode adaptation.
    4. The mini-cassetes in the comic, were in fact, Grand Slam & Raindance. Since this bit of information is inconsequential, this fact was omitted from the story (and thus the characters from the series).
  • Brawn replaces Outback's role in Club Con!, while Hound also appears in the episode adaptation to correct an error that had a member of the Battlechargers as part of Blaster's training.
    • On a related note: Blades, Blast Off, Brawl, Dead End, Dirge, Groove, Hot Spot, Motormaster, Onslaught, and Streetwise also didn't appear in Club Con!
    • On another related note: the Battlecharger stationed at Club Con the island base was omitted from the story for continuity purposes.
  • Afterburner, Barrage, the present day Blurr, Chromedome, Crosshairs, present day Hot Rod, Lightspeed, Pointblank, present day Kup, Needlenose, Nosecone, Prowl, Quake, Ransack, Spinister, Squeezeplay, Strafe, Sureshot, and Whirl all didn't appear in the Time Wars comic, and ironically the latter is among the surviving Wreckers.
    • On a related note: Exactly which Autobots gets shunted off to limbo in Time Wars changes. While Optimus Prime, Blaster, and Highbrow are still victims; everyone else includes Ironhide, Wheeljack, Hoist, and Prowl.
      • Thus, the Autobot which repairs Goldbug in Time Wars is Brainstorm in the episode adaptation instead of Hoist.
    • On another related note: unlike the comic, Battletrap is explicitly shown surviving as he showed up later after having been supposedly killed with no explanation.
      • On that related note: Flywheels survives his encounter with Galvatron, though like Battletrap: doesn't join the other survivors at the end and instead rejoins the Decepticons.
  • The Soundwave and Terrorcons from the Target: 2006 timeline following Rodimus Prime to the past is omitted in the Time Wars's episode adaptation for being ultimately pointless in the story.
