- Dark Steel is a Decepticon from the Dark of the Moon portion of the live-action film series continuity. He is sometimes known as Dark Steel.
Darksteel is a traditionalist. As a student of some of the most respected Decepticon warriors on Cybertron, he learned there is no substitute for a razor-sharp blade and clever mind. Blasters and cannons get the job done, but may fail in the heat of battle. The blade never falters.
- Dark Steel (Deluxe, 2011)
- Accessories: Mechtech Blasters/Blades.
- Darksteel is a retooling of the Deluxe Dark of the Moon Sideswipe with a new head sculpt and the color scheme resembling Beast Wars Quickstrike. He is gun-metal grey with blue flames painted on the hood, and he now has a red windscreen. On top of the Instructions it says "Autobot" and on the box it says "Decepticon".

- As mentioned above, Darksteel is an homage to Beast Wars
