First cartoon appearance: Energon episode # 23: Each One Fights
First comic appearance: Energon #19
Profile: Insecticon is a merciless Terrorcon who declares allegiance only to himself. His infamous battle tactics are feared by both Autobots and Decepticons alike, though few of his opponents have survived to speak of them. His enemies are advised to avoid the swarm of Insecticon. He destroys simply for the sake of destruction. Unicron chose Insecticon as a forth counterpart to his Terrorcons army because of their abilities to traverse even the most difficult of terrains. Exploring alien worlds in search of Energon, Insecticon and his clone army know no bounds and will go to any length to feed their own desire for Energon and contribute to the will of their master Unicron.
Abilities: He possesses a powerful arsenal of energon weapons in both robot and insect mode. He is drawn to energon. "Eats" pure energon to collect and store it for Unicron.
Weaknesses: Insecticon lacks speed to quickly retreat from dangerous situations. His below average intelligence doesn't help, but with the allies he has, he often gets away with both!
