- Flare Jet is a Decepticon from the Operation Combination portion of the Generation One continuity family.
Flare Jet used to be friends with Mach Road, and may have once been an Autobot himself. Now this solar warrior uses his powers for the Decepticons, burning whatever they desire to cinders using energy from the sun.
(How he gets along with Shadow Jet is unclear.)
Operation Combination story pages
Flare Jet and the other Decepticons came to Earth to do bad things. When the Autobots blasted Battle Gaia with some BURNING HEART-O I MUST SUCCEED energy, he and the rest of the Jet Corps hauled away the parts left over, presumably forever defeated and humiliated.

- Japanese ID number: TF-09
- Flare Jet is identical to the Predator Snare, transforming into a Grumman X-29 fighter jet. He has a spring-loaded hand-held missile launcher, plus retains the Megavisor gimmick, allowing him to be conencted to the larger Predator toys (only one of which, Skyquake, was released in Japan, and even that was basically in UK packaging). He was available only in a two-pack with Mach Road.
