1.All of them had a chance of pulling doors open.
-Matrix pulling the door open in "The Return Of The Crimson Binome"


-Rhinox pulling the door open when they find "the ark" (I forgot what episode that was I think it was a part of "The Agenda")

2.Computerized (3-d)

3.Ray Tracer is a biting off Optimus Primal(or the other way around)because they both use surf boards for flying

4.MEGAbyte, MEGAtron

5.They end the same way.. Optimus and Bob both get blasted up by the bad guy.

7.In the episode "Icons" Matrix blasts a virus shaped like a insect. The voice of this virus is like the voice of Tarantulas in Beast Wars

8."The Episode With No Name" , in the duel between Andraia and another sprite, the song is the same in another duel in "Coming of the Fuzor, part 1 and 2", a Beast Wars episode.

9. (A link to see who's doing whose voices) This is worth getting a look at

10.In Reboot's first episode of the first season, there is a space scene (in the game) and in Beast Wars' first episode of the first season, there is a space scene also.

11.Cyrus & Dinobot are both traitors


Submitted by Jamal

12. Bob and Optimus both change. Bob merged with Glitch in "Mousetrap" and Optimus returned to the Maximals as a transmetal in "Coming of the Fuzor" Optimus also changed into Optimal Optimus in "Optimal Situation".

13. The last episodes of Beast Wars and Reboot in Seaseon 3 are happy endings. The Maximals (along with Blackarachnia go home), Mainframe is rid of Megabyte and gets restored.

14. They each returned to their homes, The Maximals return to Cybertron, and Matrix, Bob, AndrAIa, and Frisket returned to Mainframe but it is damaged beyond their imagination then it gets restored.

15. There is a bit of romance in it. Bob and Dot finally kiss in "EndProg", Blackarachnia and Silverbolt kiss in "Crossing the Rubicon".

16. In some of the episodes in Beast Wars they use some of the lines from Reboot.

17. They both use parodies of other shows and movies(i.e. X-Files Power Rangers, James Bond, Bugs Bunny and Tweety show etc.). Especially ReBoot.

18. In the episode "Bad Bob" when all of the sprites are racing in the Mad Max game, the background music is the same as the main theme of Beast Wars.

19. The "thing" that attacked Hexidecimal and threatened Mainframe in the second season looks an awful lot like the satellite that threatened the planet in Beast Wars.

20. In Beast Wars and Reboot the weaponry magnetizes and sticks to their hips.

21. Bob and Optimus both got through 3 forms. With Bob it is his guardian suit, than when he is degraded from exposure to the net, and finally when he bonds with glitch. With Optimus he is the plain old monkey, than he is a transmetal, and finally he is Optimal Optimus.

22. Mouse and Ray Tracer are in love, just like Black Arachnia and Silverbolt. Mouse and Black Arachnia were working for the bad guys at one time.

23. On Beast Wars, Tigertron & Air Razor fuse to become Tigerhawk, and on Reboot, Megabyte, Hexadecimal, & that web virus thing fuse to become Gigabyte, and both Tigerhawk & Gigabyte are voiced by Blu Mankuma.

24. At the beginning of "When Games Collide", the background music is a piece that is used repeatedly in Beast Wars episodes ("other visits" & "the trigger")


25. Is it just me or does Cybertropolis look a lot like Mainframe?

26. The villain in each of the shows (Megatron & Megabyte) get a chance to rule their city

30. In the Reboot episode "wizards, warriors, and a word from our sponsors...", they gave Mike the TV the same music as Silverbolt.
Submitted by: Kevin (macman8031)
31. In the Beast Wars episode "Bad Spark" that Silverbolt theme music is the same music used in Reboot's, "The Quick and the Fed", where there is a knights and damsels game. Silverbolt has the code of honor and chivalry of an Arthurian Knight.

32. that Enzo and Cheetor are almost exactly alike. They are both young and impulsive and are trying to impress their bosses. (Bob, Optimus) They also go through three stages with them becoming more mature with each process.
Cheetor- Normal, Transmetal, Transmetal 2
Enzo- Little Enzo, Guardian Enzo, Matrix
The last stage is also the most painful and hardest. In the last season, both finally understand their hero worship. Cheetor in "Feral Scream" and Matrix in "Mousetrap"

33. Blackarachnia and Mouse are similar to each other. Both are strong fighters and clever. Both were betrayed and they hate to be double-crossed. The only problem is that Blackarachnia is a double-crosser herself.

34. Both shows respective Wars were turned up a notch in the 3rd season. Reboot had Megabyte going to war with the system. Beast Wars had the Maximals fighting to protect the Ark.

36. The knight in shining armor-Silverbolt and Glitch Bob.

40. Hyperactive kids. Enzo and Cheetor. Green Kid and Fast Cat.

41. Near the end of both ReBoot and Beast Wars, someone 'felt whole' and changed sides. In 'Nemesis part 2' Transmetal 2 Dinobot said he finally felt whole, and in the end of that episode he joined Optimus' side. In 'Showdown' Hex told Bob she finally felt whole and joined Bob's side.

47. In 'Enzo the Smart' they had a sports game with a stadium setting could this be a forshadowing of a creation of action man?
Submitted by: Terry Leighty
48. In the last episode featuring the original Dinobot, he sacrifises himself to save the valley in order to preserve the future. The same thing happens to Rob Cursor to save the future of his system in "Where no sprite has gone Before".
