Buzzsaw is a Decepticon Transformer which transforms from a mechanical golden condor into a microcassette tape. He works in tandem with his partner Soundwave, and fellow cassettes Laserbeak, Ravage, Rumble, Frenzy, and Ratbat. Buzzsaw's name derives from his micro-serated beak, which can slice through most materials. He excelled in espionage due to his small animal form, and is far braver than the cowardly Laserbeak.

Animated series

Buzzsaw would occasionally appear in the animated series, usually partnered with Laserbeak on spying or attack missions. However, he was featured far less than Laserbeak, likely due to the fact that Buzzsaw was included with the Soundwave toy, so featuring Laserbeak would boost Laserbeak's sales.


Transformers: The Headmasters

Buzzsaw also appeared in several episodes of the Japanese Transformers: The Headmasters series, being one of the cassettes who recovered Soundwave's body after his fatal duel with Blaster, rebuilding him into Soundblaster. He went on to battle Twincast (the similarly rebuilt Blaster) and his cassettes on several other occasions. Blaster (Broadcast in Japan, Tempo in France, Radiorobot in Italy) is the communications center of the Autobots in the Transformers television and comic series based on the popular toy line produced by Takara and Hasbro. ...


Marvel Comics

Buzzsaw was one of the original ten Decepticons that crashed to Earth in the Ark. After being reactivated and given the Earthen mode of a condor, Buzzsaw would participate in many of the early battles against the Autobots, seemingly taking Laserbeak's place as Shockwave's pet — until a disastrous raid by Megatron led to Buzzsaw, along with Starscream, Skywarp, Thundercracker, Rumble and Frenzy, getting deactivated by Omega Supreme. Buzzsaw was eventually rescued, along with the other captive Decepticons by Ratbat's forces. He would then participate in the battles against Scorponok's Decepticons and then against the Autobots, toppling Omega Supreme, using their united force. None realized, however, that it was all a ruse by Starscream to gain the power of the Underbase for himself. The Autobots and Decepticons would then unite to stop him, but Starscream's power was too great, and Buzzsaw was one of those deactivated. He was not seen again. Interestingly, Buzzsaw was capable of speech in the comic book, unlike the cartoon. The Ark is an Autobot spacecraft in the fictional Transformers Universe. ...

Transformers: Timelines

In the 2006 BotCon story and the accompanying tech spec for the Laserbeak toy released at the convention it was revealed that after the end of the Great War, Divebomb of the original Predacons had rebuilt Laserbeak, Buzzsaw and Ravage into Predacons as part of a secret project to overthrow the Maximals. Ravage swiftly grew discontented and left to work for the TriPredacus Council. When Megatron and his crew stole the Golden Disc, Divebomb, knowing of his plans to alter history, ordered Laserbeak and Buzzsaw's ship to assist them. They badly damaged the Axalon, but were distracted by the Maximal ship Chromia 10 long enough for the Axalon to find their weak spot and destroy them, ending Buzzsaw's career at last.
