The Maximals are a race of transforming robots from the planet Cybertron on the television show "Beast Wars." ("Beasties" in Canada, because they weren't allowed to use the word "war" in the title) The Maximals are descendants of the Autobots from the 1980's TV show Transformers. The Maximals battle the Predacons who are descendants of the Decepticons.

On Beast Wars, a group of Maximals (led by Optimus Primal) crash onto prehistoric Earth while chasing a group of outlaw Predacons led by Megatron (Not the original Megatron, but power-hungry Predacon who took his name)

After most of the inhabitants of Cybertron are relieved of their sparks by Megatron, Optimus Primal and his Maximals battle Megatron's new army of Vehicons.

Notable Maximals include: Optimus Primal, Cheetor, Rattrap, Rhinox, Tigatron, Air-Razor, Depth Charge, Night Scream and Botanica

Predacons who later joined the Maximals: Dinobot, Silverbolt and Black Arachnia
