The Beast Wars are a conflict from the Transformers franchise that originated in the animated series and toy line of the same name and its spinoffs. They are usually a successor conflict to or continuation of the Great War, but typically take place between the factions of Maximals and Predacons as opposed to their predecessors, the Autobots and Decepticons.

The story Transformers: Fire in the Dark features the history of a Transformers: Armada based version of the Beast Wars. "Ask Vector Prime" later expanded on this reality, revealing that Mini-Cons took part in the conflict and that the Transmetals and Fuzors created therein were created by a Super Energon explosion, as the Vok took no interest in this reality's prehistoric Earth.
