An intelligent, brilliantly colored robot, Sky Shadow is one of the most charismatic and popular of the Predacons. A good statesman and leader, he acts as one of Megatron's most trusted counselors. In actuality, however, he despises everyone and wants nothing more than to rule the Predacons with his own "more imaginative techniques". He is an expert in concealment and surprise-assault tactics; with reptillian patience he can lie in wait for days and then suddenly attack with a powerful turbo-missile, or convert to robot form and overwhelm unexpecting Maximals with his devastating saw-edged pincer. Powerful wings allow him to hover over targets, giving him a distinct advantage with targeting accuracy and in reconnaissance missions.
