The Best Episodes of Beast Wars
Last Updated: Nov 14, 2018
Trapped on a primitive planet, two opposing factions, the Maximals and the Predacons, of Transformers, a race of sentient robots, fight over its precious Energon. Soon they discover that there are other forces at work on the planet - a powerful alien race that does not approve of their presence. And as they delve deeper into the planet's history, they uncover a terrible secret, one that must not be allowed to fall into the wrong hands, or their entire race's very existence could be threatened. Beast Wars: Transformers was a spin-off from the 80s Transformers cartoon. It was later followed by Beast Machines: Transformers, which continues this show. Another interesting series to note that Beast Wars: Transformers may have started as Transformers: Beast Wars Neo, completely done in Japanese and yet to be dubbed; it is vaguely reminiscent of Gundam Wing, and many other popular mobile suit animes.
