FIRST APPEARANCE: THE TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE # 2
Massive, rotund, powerfully built and virtually
brainless, Sharkticons are the perfect killing machines
and thus the ideal enforcers to carry out the Quintessons' verdicts. The jaws and teeth of
the Sharkticons are so powerful and strong that they can
snap a six inch-thick titanium steel rod in .023 of a
second. Their spiked tails can crush the heaviest armor
plating. But the real reason for their invincibility lies
in their overwhelming numbers. Like piranhas, Sharkticons
attack their prey en masse and are totally
oblivious to the casualties the target might inflict.
They know how to do only one thing, and that is to
destroy. They perform that function perfectly.
Because they are so lacking in intelligence, they can
suffer frightening losses before they even realize it.
This is not a problem when they are facing one foe, but
against a powerful force, even their destructive ability
can be diminished.
