Featured characters[edit]

(Numbers indicate order of appearance.)


"Block Head, you...blockhead!"

Cy-Kill addressing...well, you know.

"One more word out of you, and I'll crush you like an egg...Benedict."

Cy-Kill is genuinely witty sometimes.


  • For some reason, everyone pronounces the moon of Triton as if it's two distinct words, "Tri-Ton".
  • Leader-1 really does forget all about Van Guard by the end of the episode. Dick.

Continuity notes[edit]

  • Gadgets and Powers:
    • Cy-Kill can fire a mesmerizing ray from his optics which temporarily robs Mrs. Roberts of her willpower.
    • Scooter uses a hologram of a defeated Leader-1 to fool the Renegades.

Continuity errors[edit]

Animation and technical errors[edit]

  • General Newcastle is standing on a balcony while addressing Mrs. Roberts instead of with Matt and the Guardians. As a result, when Benedict runs in to deliver his report to Newcastle, he puts his back to the general and addresses the Guardians as if Newcastle is standing with them and not high up on his lofty perch.
  • Pincher's monster head is colored blue instead of gold on his chest when Cy-Kill is threatening Sean and his mother.
  • The grey portion of Cop-Tur's chest is blue when he's watching Sean's visions on the Brainstormer.
  • Cop-Tur speaks in Pincher's voice before leaving on their mission.
  • When Scooter scoops up Nick and A.J. to run from the Renegades, they materialize on his scooter seat with the visual and sound effects as if he were making a hologram of them instead. Then later, they vanish when he transforms. So...what happened to the real Nick and A.J.?
  • As Cy-Kill threatens to overload the Brainstormer, a blue starburst flashes on Leader-1's chest when he radios the others, instead of the entire segment lighting up like normal.
  • The red rectangles on Crasher's chest are missing in the final scene aboard Thruster.

Real-world references[edit]

  • Once upon a time there was a man named Benedict Arnold, and now every traitor in history gets named after him.
