~ Starscream before his battle

Starscream is an evil and aerial Decepticon from the Transformers franchise. He appears in the 17th episode of Death Battle, Starscream VS Rainbow Dash, where he went up against Rainbow Dash of the My Little Pony franchise.


Starscream is a transformer, a large, humanoid robot that can transform into a piece of equipment or a vehicle, from the far away mechanical planet, Cybertron. He is the second-in-command and air commander of the tyrannic Decepticons against the heroic Autobots, lead by Optimus Prime.

Starscream always wanted to be the leader of the Decepticons, plotting against his leader, Megatron, trying to shoot him in his back, and blatantly states to Megatron's face that he will one day overtake him. Only Primus knows why Megatron still keeps him around.

After a struggle with the Autobots, this ultimately led the two autonomous armies to Earth, where they continued their battle and Starscream continues his quest for his self proclaimed "destiny"
