The Fallen Tech Specs
For millennia, he has waited. Thousands of years have dragged by as he recruited proxies, one by one, to scour the cosmos for the artifact he required. Now he finds he must return to the primitive, flesh-slug infected planet on which his quest began. Nothing will stand in his way this time. If need be, he will scour the surface of this disgusting world clean in the fire of his rage, and search through the blasted rubble for that which he seeks.

Info about The Fallen in the Transformers cartoons or movies.
The being known as The Fallen is ancient. According to Jetfire, he is the original Decepticon. Once a member of the original seven Transformers, the Primes, he broke their sacred credo - never to claim the sun of a world populated by intelligent life. He despised humanity and sought to destroy them all by taking the power of the sun, but was defeated by the other Primes. For his crime, he was forevermore known as The Fallen.
In the present day, he lurks aboard the wreck of the Decepticon ship, Nemesis. When Megatron is revived, he returns to the Nemesis and meets The Fallen. As only a Prime can kill The Fallen, he feared Optimus Prime and directed Megatron to kill him. After Megatron succeeded in killing Optimus, The Fallen rose from his throne on the Nemesis, throwing off the cables attaching him to its power cores.
Megatron and The Fallen next began to seek out the source of Energon needed to revive Cybertron - the Sunkiller weapon. The Fallen knew the location of the weapon, but not the key to activate it. For that, he required the Matrix of Leadership, the key to locating it, hidden within the mind of Sam Witwicky. And so the Decepticons publicly declared their existence to the world, striking across the globe, while The Fallen himself hacked into every TV screen on the planet and made a declaration - hand over Sam Witwicky, or face the end of civilization as humanity knows it.
The Fallen then waited in the shadows, as Sam Witwicky went on the run, and the Decepticons hunted him down. In Egypt, Sam found The Matrix of Leadership, but it crumbled to dust when he touched it. Sam kept the dust, though. During a major battle between the Autobots and the Decepticons, Sam was apparently killed - but he met with The Fallen's brothers, the other Primes, in a vision, and received The Matrix from them. Sam awoke and used The Matrix to revive Optimus Prime.
The Fallen then made his move. Teleporting in from out of nowhere he claimed the Matrix from Optimus Prime's body before the Autobot leader was fully awakened, and placed it within the Sunkiller (exposed from beneath one of the pyramids of Giza). As he prepared it to fire and exterminate the human race he despised so much, Optimus Prime, powered up with parts of Jetfire, flew in to save the day. Optimus destroyed the Sunkiller, enraging The Fallen. The two Primes fought each other one on one, with Megatron fighting alongside his dark master. However, both The Fallen and Megatron together were no match for Optimus Prime, who defeated Megatron before destroying The Fallen.
