Certain characters have unique cyber planet keys, or force chips as they are called in the Japanese version of the show, "Galaxy Force." Optimus Prime's cyber key strongly resembles the Matrix of Leadership, and Megatron's cyber key has aspects from the Decepticon symbol. Vector Prime's cyber key resembles a gear from a clock, most likely symbolizing his powers over space and time. See more »
Crosswise is erroneously referred to as Smokescreen for a while after his debut. He is later called by his correct name. Later reruns of these episodes fixed this error, although foreign dubs have still been produced based on the incorrect dialogue. See more »
I'm glad you said it. It saves me a lot of trouble because I ain't big on trouble. We don't need wild cards like you on this mission. I'll be glad when we can haul your useless butt back to Earth.
How can you say that to him? Like you're so perfect. Hot Shot is the bravest, most noble Autobot I know. Compared to you...
Clocker, that's enough. Landmine is right. Optimus should have never sent me here.
How could you say that to him? He looked up to you.
You should not judge Landmine so harshly, ...

In the first Hungarian dub of the series the female character Override was dubbed by a male. This lasted for several episodes, after which "he" suddenly became a woman with no explanation given. See more »
Marginally better than Armada, but one of the worst shows of the Transformers franchise
Three things redeem Cybertron somewhat, the character of Megatron, the use of the Transformers, robots in disguise line in the theme song and the dynamic voice acting of Garry Chalk and David Kaye. Apart from them, the voice work is a mix of over-compensating, uninterested under-playing and inexplicably weird accents, sad seeing as from their other work there are some talented voice actors here. The characters are not very interesting, in fact the human characters are very annoying(not exactly old news though, they were in Armada- this show is marginally better than that, Armada was a mess- and Energon). Starscream has always been an interesting character but he's bland here, and the writers clearly had no idea what to do with Scourge(shame he had potential) he is not that fearsome and the constant changing of sides got confusing and you are like make up your mind already. The animation is very little improvement either, the traditional cell animation is rather flat and sloppy and the CGI is over-saturated. Not only that, the mouth movements of the characters are far too Nutcracker-like which was very distracting, and the Transformation sequences are all flash and no subtlety. The theme song has one good line which is gone to waste by a generic hip-hop-styled tune with inane lyrics that gives the music a dated feel. The rest of the music is dull and forgettable, lacking expression or atmosphere. The dialogue is the very meaning of clunky, the light-hearted moments veer on awkwardly goofy and the more intense moments almost too grim and over-serious. It also seemed really stilted. The basic story is a good idea that is sadly also too thin structurally and too padded. The story lines just don't engage for that reason, as well as the uncompelling dialogue and characters and lack of tension and excitement in the action sequences. To conclude, Cybertron is the best of the Transformers franchise's Unicron Trilogy but that doesn't say much, it really did disappoint hugely and really not one of the franchise's finest hours. 4/10 Bethany Cox
