    Animated, as in the most recent Transformers cartoon?
    or
    Animated, as in the animated G1 cartoon?

    If it's the former, than the explanation is quite simple. Differen continuity, different Ark and Nemesis. In TF:Animated the Autobots are, for the most part, built much smaller than the Decepticons, so the Ark being much smaller than the Nemesis makes sense.

    If it's the latter, I'm not sure. I haven't seen much of G1, tbh.

    Because The Autobots are a space bridge repair crew and thus do not need a big ship, and the Decepticon's Nemesis is a warship,and to be more clear, Megatron's ship.

    There isn't an Ark in TFA.

    Omega Supreme was referred to as "The Ark" by Hasbro at the Botcon 2007 panel where the series was unveiled. This was because they did not want to spoil the surprise that the ship was a Transformer, presumably. I think it's also called The Ark in the Allspark Almanac.


    But yes, Autobot maintenance ship VS Decepticon Warship which is also Megatron's flagship. Other Decepticon ships shown (Along Came a Spider, Lockdown's shuttle) were not nearly so big.

    Gotta hand it to the Autobots - Omega/Ark crashed twice (maybe more depending on your definition) and was pretty much OK after a few repairs. The Nemesis never got going again after smacking into the moon just once. :)

    the nemisis was meant to be feared,wich is why it is so big. the ark is a repair ship, hence it had no need to be big.
