    Yeah, it's certainly confusing for sure but they take place tens of thousands of years after the initial Beast Wars.

    For the bayverse, what about the short little backstory disk about how bumble came to earth (which im assuming was retconned because of the bumble movie), and it was narrated by Peter Cullen. I forget the title but when i get home i will look at it

    You really should separate the Sunbow series from "Super Robotic Lifeform Transformers". Mashing them together makes it confusing.

    U.S. G1:
    Season 1
    Season 2
    Transformers: The Movie
    Season 3
    Season 4
    Beast Wars S1
    Beast Wars S2
    Beast Wars S3
    Beast Machines S1
    Beast Machines S2

    Japan G1:
    Season 1
    Season 2
    Scramble City/Transformers: The Movie*
    TF: 2010
    Headmasters
    Masterforce
    Victory
    Zone
    Beast Wars (Season 1)
    Beast Wars Metals (Seasons 2-3)
    Beast Wars II
    Beast Wars II The Movie
    Beast Wars Neo
    Car Robots?**
    Beast Wars Returns (Beast Machines)
    Robotmasters

    *Transformers: The Movie was shown after 2010. Scramble City was a pack-in video and contradicts some elements of 2010 and the movie. I tend to think you can mix and match elements to fit your own narrative to a point.

    **There are implications that Car Robots is tied to G1 continuity, especially in relation to Brave Maximus being Fortress Maximus resurrected, IIRC. But in the U.S., Saban's RiD was a fairly clean break in continuity.

    I feel like we all say aligned is a real continuity when we all know it isn't, Hasbro says it is and I'm sure even they know it doesn't fit together
    I don't consider WFC FOC as the same universe as RID and Prime ,they might seem that way at first but there is just too much that doesn't fit together. Resue bots is another. seperate but similar continuity allowing the same characters to be in eachothers shows while the events don't always match up.
    I consider then all shows in the same cluster but not the same universe let alone continuity
    The squint test just didn't cut it for me

    Less "need to mash"...more "want to mash" as Japan takes what Sunbow did and goes a very different direction. Our natural inclination is to streamline but, ultimately, the Japanese cartoon is a very different program that only uses Sunbow's/Mainframe's Transformers as a foundation.

    True.Maybe in the future there will be some merging thing that Hasbro speaks about to seal the continuity...

    Right now, they seem to be content with creating new fiction for Japanese characters to live in rather than acknowledge their roots.

    This CANNOT be said enough. Not to mention the fact that WFC/FOC are video games, and not a cartoon at all, which means they shouldn't be in the list in the first place. Unless, of course, you also plan on fitting in other video games. Let me know where Call of the Future and Devastation fit in all of this...

    As of 2015, the FoC/WfC series alignment with the Prime & RiD2015 series was done away with (source: Aligned continuity family - Transformers Wiki. Scroll down to 'Clashing Visions').

    Yet they still list the games with Aligned. Look up WFC/FOC ANYTHING on the wiki, it defaults back to the TFP page of whatever character/thing you look up unless it's exclusive to WFC/FOC
