Scourge is the most fearsome and implacable
hunter-destroyer created by Unicron from the wreckage of dead Decepticons.

Unicron to hunt down and eradicate Autobots and their
Scourge is possessed of scanning and locating equipment,
which can detect machine or human presence even if it is
as small as an amoeba in the ocean or a wind-up toy in
the Sahara desert. And he is merciless and capable of

targets, laser blasters, disintegrator beams, and
assorted demolition and fusion devices in eliminating his

automotive mode which handles any terrain and scans for
Scourge's only weakness is his arrogance.
