Battle Beasts originated from a world called Cybertron. Battle Beasts were halr-robot, half-beast and every one had the power of one of three elements - Wood, Water and Fire. Originally a spinoff of the Transformers Battle Beasts were created by Takara in Japan in the mid-80s. However, in 1987 they were introduced to America by Hasbro where four different series were produced. Each Battle Beast had a heat sensitive patch on the front of their chest that when rubbed would reveal their element power and a separate weapon. There were also different vehicles and transforming bases that could be used in game play.
