Thundercracker is a cunning member of the Decepticon Seeker brigade. As well as a deadly warrior, he - like Starscream - was once a formidable scientist as well. He is extremely prideful and believes his flight capability makes him superior to others, considering all non-flying creatures as lower life-forms. His pride and his disdain for those he considers beneath him is what drove him toward the Decepticon movement to begin with, yet at the same time it has also caused him to question whether the Decepticons are truly worthy of his talents. Thundercracker believes in fighting worthy adversaries and takes no pride in attacking those who cannot fight back effectively.
