Vengeance is an excuse for failure. I do not seek vengeance.
Scourge Tech Specs
Scourge is a no-nonsense field commander. Formed during the creation of the Decepticons when Megatron scanned both a tanker truck and Optimus Prime. Because of this mix-up, Scourge resents the Autobots and especially their leader. He's cunning, dangerous and cruel - if there is any Autobot goodness within his circuits, he covers it up as acts of destruction. His battle station is a fully loaded weapon and high-tech equipment arsenal. Furiously wields his signature sword in battle.

Scourge Cartoon / Movie Information
Info about Scourge in the Transformers cartoons or movies.
Scourge was an Autobot Protoform who set out with his crew in search of Fortress Maximus long ago. They crashed on Earth and were left in stasis pods at Castle Peak, until they were recovered by Megatron.
Megatron awoke the Protoforms as Decepticons, infusing them with the energy of his Spark. Scourge was a special case - not only did he receive programming from Megatron's spark, but his protoform also scanned a rocket fuel tanker ("the fuel will make him even more powerful!"), the human Kelly who was driving the tanker, and Optimus Prime himself, who had grabbed the tanker to prevent it from overturning and exploding. The result - an evil reflection of Optimus Prime, cruel and twisted, with all of Megatron's evil and ambition.
Scourge quickly established himself as Megatron's most effective warrior, although there were as many concerns about his loyalty as Optimus had hopes of one day restoring him to his former, Autobot self. The disloyalty of Scourge came to a head with the recovery of Fortress Maximus, who would only obey humans, and those with hearts of justice - two qualities that Scourge could emulate, thanks to his Optimus and Kelly elements. Although Scourge succeeded in seizing control of Maximus, the Autobot Team Bullet Train transported a large number of children to the scene, whose cries and cheers overrode Scourge's control of the giant. Scourge then went to plan B, abducting Koji's friend Carl, intending to use him as a puppet to control Maximus. Scourge's duplicity was finally revealed when he ordered Carl to destroy Megatron (now reborn as Galvatron), and when this gamble also failed, Megatron punished Scourge severely, wiping his datatrax clean and reducing him to a drone.
Or so it appeared. The end of the series, especially scenes in Surprise Attack and The Final Battle implied that something of the former Scourge survived, however small. Like the rest of the Decepticons and Predacons, except Sky Byte, Scourge was imprisoned in a Phantom Zone-like prison following the final defeat of Galvatron.
Barrage Attack - lasers / missiles launch from Scourge's shoulders.
Sword of Fury - Scourge brings out his Energon Sword, sometimes he also powers it up so that it glows with power.
