Skywarp is one of the Decepticon seekers and a member of the Decepticons. Skywarp has the ability to teleport and transforms into a purple/black F-15 Eagle jet just like Starscream and Thundercracker. He was the first Decepticon to be awaken in 1984 after he layed dormant and deactivated over four million years. He is also a cowardly Decepticon to his fellow seekers, Thundercracker and Starscream. Skywarp was the master of sneak attacks, using his teleportation abilities to cause mayhem amongst the Autobots and his fellow Decepticons when playing malicious pranks. However, his arrogance and relative lack of intelligence means he needs to be constantly monitored by his superiors, Megatron and Starscream or else he would be useless.
"Skywarp is the sneakiest of the Decepticons. Enjoys playing cruel pranks on fellow Decepticons & appearing out of nowhere to attack Autobots. Not too smart. Would be useless without Megatron's supervision. Top speed of 1500 mph. Can instantly teleport up to 2.5 miles. Carries heat-seeking missiles & variable calibre machine guns."
Transformers: The Movie
Skywarp made his final appearance in Transformers: The Movie, once again as one of its minor villains. He was present during the Decepticon assault on Autobot City & was among the few casualties, leaving him injured. He retreated back to Astrotrain with the rest of his allies but his retreat was cut short when Astrotrain began to complain about the heavy load on their way back to Cybertron. After Starscream argued with the rest of the Decepticons to whom shall succeed Megatron, with Bonecrusher suggesting a survival of the fittest, the rest of the Decepticons agreed on this. After a short brawl, Skywarp was among the weak Decepticons thrown overboard, alongside Megatron, Thundercracker & the Insecticons. His misery was put to an end when Megatron made a deal with Unicron. After Megatron became Galvatron, Skywarp was then reformatted into Galvatron's loyal right hand Cyclonus with Thundercracker being reformatted into Scourage and some of the Insecticons being reformatted into his armada.
