Jets

Seekers

Seeker was a term originally coined by fans to describe the Decepticon Jets of the same mode, eventually adopted by Hasbro and various comic continuities. Only Starscream, Skywarp and Thundercracker were named during Season 1 of the animated series. The name Sunstorm was given retroactively by toy-distributor E-Hobby to the previously unnamed yellow/orange Seeker. This was later picked up by comics publisher Dreamwave Productions. Starscream is also second-in-command of the Decepticons and notorious for trying to assassinate Megatron in order to take his place.

Season 2 Seekers (Coneheads)

These characters essentially used the same mold as their Season 1 counterparts, but with small modifications. They are also known as the "Coneheads".

Season 3 Jets

After Starscream is destroyed, Cyclonus takes over as second-in-command of the Decepticons.
