G1 Transformers Cartoon
First appearing in the 5-part episode "5 Faces of Darkness" in the year 2005, Trypticon was created by the Constructicons after the Decepticons formed an alliance with the Quintessons, using a populated human city as a source. After being created, he frightened off most of the humans living within his body before transforming into his theropod mode. Trypticon's first mission was to destroy Autobot Headquarters, but met a small resistance of who tried to stop him. He knocks Powerglide out of the way & beated the rest of the Autobot ground forces, stepping on Swerve in the process before finally destroying the Ark for good. After finishing this mission, Trypticon heads toward Autobot City to destroy it, leaving a disabled Metroplex at risk. The collosal Autobot was however saved with the arrival of Blurr, Wheelie & Sky Lynx, who had Metroplex' transformation cog. Sky Lynx distracted the Decepticons to give Blurr & Wheelie enough time to insert Metroplex' transformation cog, enabling him to transform into robot mode. The collosal Autobot gained an upper hand when he beat up Trypticon for good & hurled him into the horizon, crashing into the Pacific Ocean.
Trypticon was voiced by Brad Garrett, who would later voice Grease Pit in Biker Mice from Mars and would later play Robert in Everybody Loves Raymond.
