Rob's Pile of Transformers: Beast Quotes

Welcome to the most thorough collection of Beast Wars Quotes on the net! This list got started through the work of M Sipher, whose original list is on Rob Jung's Transformer pages; it runs through the first part of Season 2 or so. I've since expanded, corrected, and re-organized it myself, and updated it for the remainder of the series. Enjoy!

"Let the paths lead where they may. I will follow."

 -- Cheetor and dream-sequence Rhinox, "The Spark"

"With this little bauble, we will write a new chapter in the history of our race."

 -- Dinobot eulogizing Tarantulas, "Victory"
