Skywarp is the first Transformer to awaken on Earth in 1984, and he helped bring Megatron and the other Decepticons back online. After laying dormant for four million years, he now shares the same Earthen appearance (an F-15 Eagle) as Starscream and Thundercracker, and is usually allied with them during attacks.

Although a popular character in the Transformers universe, Skywarp seldom showed much function other than being a loyal Decepticon soldier, although he did seem to take a perverse joy in praising Megatron's brilliance as a leader in front of Starscream. Skywarp also appears to be the least known Decepticon amongst the Autobots; while Starscream addresses him by name in Roll for It, Optimus Prime only calls him by name in Divide and Conquer.


In the episode The Immobilizer, Skywarp attacked the Autobots with his Bouncer Bomb, but it went wild and had to be destroyed by Megatron in pistol mode. This is the only time this ability has ever been seen in Transformers fiction.

In 2005, Skywarp was among those who were thrown into space after being wounded during the battle for Autobot City. Adrift with Megatron and other wounded Decepticons, Skywarp encountered Unicron. Unicron used Skywarp's battered body to create one of Galvatron's new warriors, arguably Cyclonus, the loyal second in command of Galvatron, but there is controversy about this due to animation inconsistencies.

Marvel Comics

Skywarp was amongst those Decepticons ordered by Megatron to greet the new arrivals from Cybertron. However these new arrivals were Blaster and his Autobots. Megatron was about to attack when he heard a plea from Soundwave and Shockwave who were being attacked by Optimus Prime. Ignoring their cry for aid Megatron instead led his Decepticons to the Ark which he believed to be defenseless. It wasn't - the Autobots' "secret weapon" Omega Supreme was guarding their headquarters and attacked the Decepticons. Skywarp was the first to be destroyed. Losing Skywarp and the other Decepticons meant nothing to Megatron who said they could easily be replaced. Soundwave is the name of three fictional characters from the Transformers universes. ...

During Galvatron's first trip from the future to the year 1986, Skywarp was part of the future Autobots plans to trick Galvatron in returning: Skywarp was still deactivated from his previous battle and was lying in the Ark along with the other defeated Decepticons. However, his body was painted to look like Starscream and remote controlled by the Autobots to make Galvatron think that Starscream had destroyed his machinery. Through Skywarp, the Autobots angered Galvatron enough for him to destroy what he believed was Starscream in a blind rage. Because Starscream played a role in Galvatron's creation, he believed that whatever actions he did in the past had no effect in the future and subsequently returned, unaware that he was tricked.

Skywarp was presumably rebuilt at some point, placed back into cold storage and eventually rescued later on by the Constructicons who used a distraction to break into the Ark for that purpose. The comic version of Skywarp was ultimately destroyed by the Underbase powered Starscream along with Thundercracker and, seemingly, was never restored back to life. However, in the Generation 2 comic appeared a black decepticon jet using teleport powers. If this jet was or not a repaired Skywarp is unknown.

His expanded Transformers Universe biography describes him as having a cruel sense of humor and that he loves to play practical jokes on his fellow Decepticons, usually involving his teleportation abilities. It also states that he's "not too bright and would be totally useless without the supervision of Megatron."

Skywarp was recruited as a Decepticon under the leadership of Megatron in his war against the Autobots on the planet Cybertron. Skywarp became a member of the elite Seekers under Aerospace Commander Starscream.


Skywarp and Thundercracker launched an attack against the city of Altihex, where they routed Grimlock and his Autobots. Later, Starscream, Skywarp and Thundercracker attacked the city of Protihex under the orders of Megatron. Knowing that Grimlock joined with the Autobots, but was dissatisfied with them, Starscream offered Grimlock the chance to join the attack on Protihex. Grimlock rejected the offer and not only evacuated the Autobot outpost before the attack could occur, but he left an explosive trap for Starscream and company.

When Megatron and Autobot leader Optimus Prime disappeared in an accident with a space bridge, the Autobot and Decepticon forces splintered into smaller factions.

After Megatron's return Skywarp was chosen as a member of the crew of the Nemesis when Megatron launched it to attack the Ark, an Autobot ship.

Skywarp was given the form of an F-15 fighter jet. After many battles, the combined forces of the Autobots on Earth, and their human allies were able to capture the Decepticons. A ship called the Ark II was built to take the Cybertronians back to Cybertron, along with some human companions, but the ship exploded shortly after takeoff. The human allies were killed, but the Cybertronians were lost in the ocean, again in stasis lock. Teletran I Teletran I is the name of the Autobots computer on board the Ark in the series Transformers Generation One. ...


Skywarp and others were recovered by a rogue military unit and reprogrammed as slave war machines, but Megatron broke free and then freed his fellow Decepticons, including Skywarp.

Transformers/G.I. Joe

Skywarp also appeared in Dreamwave's Transformers/G.I. Joe series as one of the Decepticons allied with Cobra, transforming into a P-51 Mustang. He was killed by Optimus Prime.

Devil's Due Publishing

In this reimagining of the Generation One story, the Ark was discovered by the terrorist Cobra organization, and all the Transformers inside were reformatted into Cobra vehicles remotely controlled by the Televipers. In this storyline Skywarp turned into a Cobra Rattler jet. (since both Skywarp and Thundercracker were blue Rattler jets, Skywarp is supposed to be the black-headed one). When the Transformers broke free, Skywarp killed his pilot, Major Bludd, by transforming while Major Bludd was in his chest cockpit area thus crushing him. This is supported previously in the comic when Doctor Mindbender informs Destro that the results of attempts to modify the transformers so that soldiers can remain in the cockpits during transformation were "messy" and that Major Bludd is seen in the cockpit as the controls and seat begin to fold into their positions during robot mode, also the cockpit is closed in the next panel and Major Bludd's last scream comes from inside.

IDW Publishing

After Dreamwave's closure, the rights to the Transformers comics were taken up by IDW Publishing. They have begun to publish their own new material, including a miniseries called The Transformers: Infiltration featuring some of the Generation One Transformers. In Infiltration, Starscream appears to be in command of a small group of Decepticons on Earth, including Skywarp, Thundercracker, Blitzwing, Astrotrain and the Battlechargers Runabout and Runamuck. Starscream had discovered an ore on Earth that was the Transformer equivalent of steroids, making him bold enough to advance their infiltration phase ahead of schedule. However, it seems that humans have somehow obtained evidence of the Transformers' existence, which would derail Starscream's plans. Skywarp has thus far appeared as part of Starscream's elimination squad, disposing of any evidence of their operation on Earth. While bombing the Decepticon's abandoned base on Earth to destroy evidence of it, Skywarp battled Bumblebee, using his teleporting ability to stay a step ahead of the Autobot. However, Bumblebee managed to predict where he would emerge next and shot him down temporarily. Unfortunately for Skywarp though, after the destruction of the base was complete, Megatron had learnt of Starscream's attempts for power on Earth and arrived, seriously wounding him before making off to destroy Starscream. Skywarp survived, though, as Megatron placed him and Blitzwing in CR chambers, as revealed in The Transformers: Escalation. He submits to Megatron's authority, accepting no further mistakes would be tolerated. He and Thundercracker were sent to bomb a a desert power plant, escalating tensions amongst the humans in the area. Accompanying Megatron to the disputed Soviet border state of Brasnya, Skywarp was sent to wait in case back-up was needed - and it was as Optimus Prime appeared leading a team of Autobots to stop the Decepticons. Skywarp and Astrotrain attacked using Skywarp's teleporting power, running interference for the human facsimile they were using. Despite his teleporting powers Jazz and Wheeljack quickly cottoned on andanticipated his moves. Skywarp then disappeared, promising to return with reinforcements. He returned with Thundercracker, damaging Hot Rod severely and killing the facsimile. However, they were forced to flee when Megatron called for pickup after his Ore-13 was expended. His alternate mode here is that of an F-22 Raptor, the successor to his original Gen 1 F-15 alternate jet mode.

In the BotCon Wreckers comic series by 3H Enterprises, Skywarp returned after tricking the second Megatron into giving him a new body. Strangely, Skywarp joins the Wreckers alongside Cyclonus. This may indicate that the Universe comics believe that it was the Insecticon Bombshell, not Skywarp, who became Cyclonus (this is apparently due to the fact that artist Dan Khanna believes that it was Bombshell, not Skywarp, who became Cyclonus). This may in fact be a continuity error: even if Skywarp did not become Cyclonus he was transformed into a Cyclonus-type robot and his personality lost. However, as there is no explanation in the comic the relationship between the two remains unclear. This toy was a recolor of Beast Machines Deluxe Jetstorm.

After the end of the Great War 300 years in the future, a Predacon named Megatron conquered Cybertron with his Vehicon army. Megatron attempted to using Skywarp's spark to create a Vehicon to use against the few Maximals who opposed him, but Skywarp broke free and joined up with the Wreckers under the command of Primal Prime, along with several other Generation One survivors, such as Cyclonus, Arcee and Devcon, staying with the Wreckers after Cyclonus' betrayal. Despite this, following the Wreckers' defeat of Cryotek, Skywarp was seen in the service of Unicron as part of the Chaos-Bringer's army during Optimus Prime's recollections in issue #8 of the Cybertron Club comic.

  • Generation 1 Skywarp (1984)
The original Skywarp toy was originally part of the Japanese Diaclone toyline, and was imported to become part of the Transformers toyline by Hasbro in 1984. In jet mode, the toy is 21cm long (a scale of 1:93, suggesting that Skywarp 14cm robot mode would be about 13m tall). In what is considered to be a major drawback to the toy, the majority of its parts have to be removed for transformation, and it is rare to find a totally complete one, since no single mode can hold all the parts. [2]
Skywarp shared a mold with Starscream and Thundercracker, and later Sunstorm. He was remolded into Dirge, Ramjet and Thrust.

  • Machine Wars Skywarp (1997)
Skywarp was one of the six Decepticons which appeared in this sub-line. Sharing the same mold as Thundercracker, Skywarp is now a white jet. His Machine Wars appearance is considered to be set in an alternate reality which replaces the entire G1 storyline although no official story has been released. The toy of Machine Wars Skywarp is based on an unusued Generation Two flip-changing jet mold. It was later used for Beast Wars Second Dirge.
His bio is much the same as his Gen 1 bio, indicating he loves using his teleporting for practical jokes - but lacks the intelligence to really exploit it, resulting in mid-air collisions. He can convert between alternate modes instantly. [3]

A promotional toy called Skywarp was given away at the San Diego ComicCon which was a recolor of the micro-sized Cybertron Starscream toy. This toy was colored to resemble the original Skywarp's black and purple colors. Oddly this toy had no Decepticon symbol and came with a black Autobot Cyber Planet Key, but the people who released him said that he was a Decepticon, and that the key was a separate promotional item placed in the same bag. Note that although seemingly a part of the Cybertron line, according to the Hasbro web site this toy was part of the Universe line.
