    I'm not sure if this has been threaded before, but I wanted to get the fandoms opinions on who would win in a dogfight, and a hand to hand combat. I think starscream would win in a air dogfight, and CYCLONUS in hand to hand combat, but I think starscream nulray gives him the advantage but then CYCLONUS has supernatural powers don't know exactly what kind but that's why I want to know what you guys think?

    Cyclonus would probably beat down Starscream and steal his guns and destroy him, but then again Starscream will come back as a ghost and hunt Cyclonus :lol

    Even if Starscream wins, he loses.

    Just my 2 cents on this but I don't remember Cyclonus having supernatural powers. Correct me if I am wrong about that though, cuase it would be cool.

    In a knock down drag out fair fight, I think Cyclonus would win hands down. But when does Starscream ever fight fair?

    Starscream fights fair, he just annoys his fellow comrads. Like in the episode

    The Ultimate Doom:
    Thundercraker: I think Megatron's plan is brilliant
    Starscream: I think it's a waste of energy
    Thundercraker: You waste more energy with your mouth

    :lol

    Well I read on his bio toy package universe one it stated he does, something about he can sterilize the surface of a planet, I could be wrong about the details I'm sure sto_voo_koo can get the facts on it. But IMO I think CYCLONUS does have supernatural powers.

    Cyclonus would kick Screamer's ass to Saturn and back.

    Starscream all day. At least until he gets wounded and retreats screaming.

    Starscream would win in a dogfight, get killed in hand-to-hand, then come back to haunt and possess Cyclonus. And then he'd probably make Cyclonus do something crazy to get Galvatron to kill him. :D

    Cyclonus is a super-powered warrior with a body created by other-worldly forces, I dont think Starscream would stand a chance. (Think Galvatron being able to destroy a planet with his cannon whereas Megatron's fusion cannon was described as only being able to level a city block).

    Starscream's a better fighter, especially in the air. (He's also a dirtier fighter.) Even if Cyclonus won, Starscream could simply possess him (if dead).

    Yeah, that's what I think, Starscream is more cunning IMO. I'd imaging he's be sneaky like in Grimlock's dream where he takes Megatrons fusion cannon and blows Grimlock apart.

    Pretending to be injured and then take Cyclonus out, but not on a date! Ha Ha

    I'll say Starscream also. He's just too much of jerk to lose to Cyclonus...

    I like Starscream a lot, and I think he tends to get underrated, but Cyclonus is a special case.

    During the period that Unicron was active, Cyclonus & co. supposedly were able to draw nearly limitless power from their connection to Unicron, which makes them "supernatural" to an extent. They are cosmic beings, similar in a way to the Heralds of Galactus in Marvel comics (which was no doubt part of the inspiration).

    I would tend to say that once Unicron was defeated in the '86 movie, Galvatron and his buddies lost this ability, and instead had to rely on their own physical resources. That said, I think they're still pretty damn powerful. Looking at their Tech Specs stats (Skywarp's numbers for Starscream of course) Starscream would have a tough time with either the '86 OR '87 version of Cyclonus. However his guile and speed (in atmosphere, Starscream is faster!) might still give him chance.

    Hold on, hold on... Megatron's bio explains that Megatron's regular blast has considerably more than enough power for a city block..
    Secondly, saying Galvatron was able to "destroy a planet" with his cannon is a distortion. He destroyed a planetoid of some kind, though I'm not convinced it was much larger than a small town to be fair. I think that Galvatron's firepower IS probably greater than Megatron's (at least without Megatron's black hole anti-matter link), but let's not exaggerate! :) 

    On a side note, can anyone explain why Cyclonus is classed as a "Saboteur"? Seems a bit out of place, doesn't it?

    I am going to have to say Cyclonus. He's a much more refined fighter and can take more of a beating. Starscream is a coward and usually runs before a fight is over, plus although he may be a dirty fighter, Cyclonus would simply overpower him with his far superior skill. Plus, he was created by Unicron, so he's got that going for him as well.

    Cyclonus FTW! :D

    Supernatural no. But i think it was said that he could draw pretty much unlimited strength from Unicron. If that applies after Unicron was decapitated...who knows.

    But yeah, Starscream would either cheat, or just turn tail.
