One of Megatron's loyal followers, Skyquake was entombed in stasis on Earth until he was awakened by Starscream. However, Skyquake refuses to follow Starscream while remaining loyal to Megatron to the point of attempting to finish his master's order to kill Optimus Prime. Though outmatched by Optimus and Bumblebee, despite the former's attempts to reason with him, Skyquake gains the advantage when he scans Fowler's fighter jet. Eventually, through a reckless plan, Bumblebee manages to defeat Skyquake, destroying him.
In the episode "Shadowzone", Starscream uses a piece of Dark Energon to revive Skyquake as a Terrorcon "zombie". However, a Groundbridge accident results in Skyquake becoming trapped in a pocket shadow dimension, along with Jack, Raf, and Miko. Also, Skyquake has a twin brother named Dreadwing as seen in the episode "Loose Cannons".
In "Patch," Megatron and Dreadwing learn about what happened to Skyquake's Terrorcon form. In, "Regeneration," Dreadwing, feeling disgraced over Skyquake's fate, attempts to kill Starscream as retribution, but is killed by Megatron. In "Deadlock", Dreadwing's death (and in turn Skyquake's) is avenged when Bumblebee kills Megatron.
Terrorcon Skyquake is most likely destroyed by Soundwave soon after that he is trapped in the Shadowzone too.
Though he-like all the Prime Decepticons-is not featured in Transformers: Rescue Bots, Skyquake is referenced. In the episode "Shake Up," after learning about the Earthquake phenomenon, Blades expresses the hope that there is no such thing as a "Sky Quake."
