Decepticon Insignia

This is a list of known Decepticons from the Transformers fictional universe and toyline.


Generation One[edit]


  • Decepticon Founder / Supreme Leader MegatronWalther P38 Pistol (died during a fight with Optimus Prime, reformed and reconstructed as Galvatron by Unicron)
  • Decepticon Air Commander / Decepticon Second-In-Command / Trine Leader Starscream - Modified F-15 Eagle (killed by Galvatron) (resurrected by Unicron)
  • Military Operation Commander Shockwave - Cybertronian Space Gun
  • Governor of Polyhex Lord Straxus - Mobile Cannon (Later referred to as "Dark Mount" for trademark reasons.) (killed by Blaster)
  • Decepticon Leader After Megatron's Death Galvatron - Laser Cannon / Futuristic Handgun (In most continuities, Megatron is reformatted into Galvatron .)
  • Decepticon Second-In-Command After Starscream's death Cyclonus - Cybertronian Fighter Jet (reformat and renovation of Bombshell by Unicron)
  • Leader of Decepticon Sweeps Scourge - Cybertronian Flying Hovercraft (reformat and renovation of Thundercracker by Unicron)
    • Sweeps are mass-produced Transformers sharing the same body-type of Scourge. (reformat and renovation of Kickback and Shrapnel by Unicron)

Decepticon Jets/Seekers[edit]

Seeker was a term originally coined by fans to describe the Decepticon Jets of the same mode, eventually adopted by Hasbro and various comic continuities. Only Starscream, Skywarp and Thundercracker were named during Season 1 of the animated series. The name Sunstorm was given retroactively by toy-distributor E-Hobby to the previously unnamed yellow/orange Seeker and Purple/Silver is Slipstream. This was later picked up by comics publisher Dreamwave Productions. Ramjet, Thrust, and Dirge (introduced in Season 2) essentially used the same mold as their Season 1 counterparts but with small modifications, and because of this, they are also known as the "Coneheads".

They were introduced into the Transformers toyline in late 1985 and were sold as a Menasor gift set, and then sold separately in 1986 in most department stores.[3] Their enemies are the Aerialbots.[4]
