Guardians Renegades Humans



Continuity notes[edit]

  • Gadgets and Powers:
    • Cy-Kill uses his mesmerism to make Matt Hunter deliver a stilted A-OK report to the star fortress. He also spontaneously turns an entire squad of UNECOM soldiers against the Guardians.

Continuity errors[edit]

  • Nick and A.J. hear explosions back at the ship, despite the vacuum of space.

Animation and technical errors[edit]

  • Cy-Kill says the energy shield surrounds the whole planet, but it only surrounds the space station in the animation.
  • Crasher's chest is gray instead of black when the Renegades prepare to depart.
  • The vents on the side of Leader-1's chest glow instead of the center chestpiece when he activates his radio during the Renegade intrusion.
  • Sparky's missing her left arm when they start digging Leader-1 out of the rubble.
  • Small Foot is drawn instead of Sparky as the Guardians race to save the quantumite.
  • As the Renegades flee, Pincher's "nose" in vehicle mode is blue instead of its normal gold.
