Animated series

The Predacons made their dramatic debut in the year 2005, as the Decepticon/Quintesson alliance began its attack on the Autobots on both Earth and Cybertron. With the Autobots Blurr and Wheelie and the human Marissa Faireborn stranded on Io , one of Jupiter's moons, while attempting to deliver the transformation cog that would allow the Autobot battle station, Metroplex, to transform and fight back, communications officer Blaster attempted to contact Cybertron for reinforcements, revealing his allies' plight. The transmission was intercepted by the Quintessons, however, and upon learning the location of the cog, they dispatched the Predacons to Io to ensure it would not reach Earth. After an initially poor showing in their individual robot and animal modes, the team merged to form Predaking, but were confronted by the massive Autobot Sky Lynx and bested, leading to an enmity between the two.

The Predacons were in their element for their first mission in 2006, operating in the wilds of the planet Dredd, where they again battled Sky Lynx and several other Autobots, but were defeated when they were buried in an avalanche created by the planet's native Chaos monster. Later, they participated in the invasion of Paradron, with Divebomb pursuing escapee Sandstorm and Razorclaw co-ordinating the shooting down of the Autobot reinforcement vessel he returned with.

While en route to Chaar at a later date, Predaking intercepted an unusual Quintesson signal and tracked it to a jungle planet, where they came upon a group of Autobots who had done the same and discovered an electronic journal recording Quintesson military transactions. The team merged into Predaking, who immediately targeted Sky Lynx among the group, seeking revenge for his past defeats; Sky Lynx out-manoeuvered the Decepticon, but, rather than best him in combat, had to get his fellow Autobots to safety. When the Decepticons then acquired the journal, Predaking was reluctant to retreat until having finished off Sky Lynx, but stood down in the face of Galvatron's wrath.

When the ancient genius Primacron unleashed his energy-absorbing creation, Tornedron, on the universe, Primacron's assistant sought to foil his former mentor by amassing a team of "Primitives" - Transformers with animal instincts that could hopefully thwart Primacron's complexities. The Predacons were among the Transformers summoned from a battle on Earth's moon to a dead world at the center of the universe, where Tornedron confronted them. Refusing to run from him, the Predacons formed Predaking and battled Tornedron, who took the shape of a giant warrior, absorbing all energy Predaking threw at them until he had been drained of life. Of all the Primitives, only Grimlock survived, and was subsequently able to stop Tornedron and Primacron, restoring the Predacons and the others to life.

After participating in the Decepticon attack on Japan, the Predacons were among the Transformers infected when the madness-inducing Hate Plague swept the universe. The animosity bred by the plague did not prevent the Predacons from combining into Predaking and pursuing the uncontaminated Galvatron, however, only to be forced to retreat by a squad of uninfected Autobots led by Optimus Prime. When Prime subsequently released the power of the Matrix, the plague was cured.

Transformers: Headmasters

The Predacons continued to put in short appearances in 1987's Japanese-exclusive spinoff series, Transformers: Headmasters, usually fighting alongside and against the other combiner teams in various battles.


Marvel Comics

Although Divebomb would most often appear as part of the Predacons, one special story would highlight his background in the UK Transformers strip #135-136. In it, it was revealed that Divebomb had been a rival of the Dinobot Swoop (then known as Divebomb) when the two were still on Cybertron, with Divebomb not only besting Swoop but stealing his name as well, with Swoop only being saved by the intervention of Optimus Prime. Much later, after the Transformer war had spread to Earth, a bored Divebomb, tired of terrorizing humans, was confronted by his old adversary. The two engaged in a rematch but were interrupted by the other Predacons and Dinobots (much to both combatants' annoyance, as they had both wanted a one-on-one duel), who promptly battled. In the midst of this Divebomb again beat Swoop, who tricked him into attacking Grimlock, who pummelled him. Swoop intervened, promising that he and Divebomb would battle again fairly in the future.

Dreamwave Productions

Dreamwave Productions' 21st century re-imagining of the original universe had little time to focus on the Predacons before the company's closure. It was revealed that Divebomb and the other Predacons were once warlords on Cybertron who were cast into exile in space. Settling on Planet Beest, home of the Battle Beasts, the Predacons sank into a feral state, and lived as inhabitants of that world for untold years, until Megatron arrived. He defeated all the Predacons, and reengineered them to combine as Predaking. They then headed to Earth, defeating Bruticus - but Dreamwave went into bankruptcy from there.

Transformers: Timelines

According to the Tech Spec of Botcon '06 exclusive Laserbeak, Divebomb was the one who reformatted Laserbeak, Buzzsaw, and Ravage into Predacons, in exchange for their loyalty for an enigmatic project (though hints given indicate that the 'project' was the quiet staging for a Predacon rebellion against the ruling Maximal class and their own peace-accepting brethren); it is known that Ravage would grow disenchanted with his role, and leave to set up his role as an agent for the Tripredacus Council.

Divebomb appeared prominently in the accompanying comic "Dawns of Futures Past", where it was revealed that he was prominent in facilitating the escape of Megatron's Darksyde crew after they had stolen the Golden Disc, presumably as he had learned of the rogue Predacon's plan to alter history. He sent Laserbeak and Buzzsaw to destroy all pursuit, but they were themselves destroyed by the Axalon.
