Transmutate doesn't HAVE a gender, I thought. Don't they ALWAYS refer to it as, well, "it"? (Plus this article totally needs to be put in the character format.) --M Sipher 05:17, 29 April 2006 (UTC)

Meh. I dunno. I thought basically everybody thought of Transmutate as female. If that's not accurate, I certainly don't object to having that category removed. --Steve-o 05:29, 29 April 2006 (UTC)

Well, being voiced by Susan Blu certainly colored that. But I don't remember it ever having been referred to with a gendered pronoun in the actual episode itself... which I would think is PART of the point. It's such a freak it doesn't even fall under "he" or "she". --M Sipher 05:33, 29 April 2006 (UTC)

Didn't one of the Bobs say Transmutate was female? And ALL TF's are neither male nor female according to the Marvel comics. What's so freaky about asexuality? Silverbolt putting his boy-parts in Blackarachnia's spider-parts-- now that's freaky! -Derik 06:42, 16 May 2006 (UTC)

Did one of the Bobs say it in the actual episode? /:) Also, this is not the Marvel comics. This is Beast Wars, where there are males and females. --ItsWalky 06:52, 16 May 2006 (UTC)
To what degree are we confined to 'said in the actual episode'? Female voice actor. Nothign in the episode conflicts with it, producer says it's so- doesn't this get an italicised comment at least? (But then, I never understood the screaming shit-fits some people get into when you say the Predacon ship was called the Darkside. It was named in official sources, jsut not the series. Make an italicised note that the name came later and move on. No one gets this upset abotu the name of the Ark, and we didnt' even have Terrorsaur for that!) -Derik 07:46, 16 May 2006 (UTC)

A minor point of argument among fans is exactly why the Maximals were so quick to stasis-lock Transmutate instead of transferring its spark to another body like Rhinox did with Optimus Primal following the latter's unintentional sacrifice.

With Primal they were able to transfer his Spark into a new body because they happened to have a new empty stasis pod land outside soon before. With Transmutate, they didn't transfer her Spark because they didn't have any spare protoforms lying around (unless they found some and I'm forgetting it)--Zodberg 03:45, 1 November 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, is this really a point of argument among fans? Because, it shouldn't be. The only reason they were able to put Primal's spark in a new body is because that pod with the blank protoform happened to be on hand. --KilMichaelMcC 04:15, 1 November 2007 (UTC)
I'm inclined to agree. I vaguely recall people wondering why the Maxies seemed so eager to put her out of her misery instead of, say, stasis. But not that they should have given her a new body. --Steve-o 04:22, 1 November 2007 (UTC)
But... they were going to put her into stasis. No one but Megatron ever suggested killing Transmutate. --KilMichaelMcC 04:24, 1 November 2007 (UTC)
Eh. I did say it was a "vague" recollection.  :) --Steve-o 04:26, 1 November 2007 (UTC)
It's worth noting. I hear it all the time: Oh, the Maximals were going to kill Transmutate, they're so awful, why were they so evil to her. It's a common misperception. -- Repowers 04:30, 1 November 2007 (UTC)


Isn't Transmutate technically a Maximal? (Her faction was never subverted by the Predacons, which should make her Maximal by default).Darktruth 16:35, 1 February 2008 (UTC)
