About Thundercracker:

Faction: Decepticon

Class: Brawler

Often fighting in the shadow of fellow Decepticon Starscream, Thundercracker loves a good battle…but only against a worthy opponent. He hates fighting against humans because it feels like unfair victory rather than true combat, and Decepticons aren’t forged to fight by overpowering the weak.
