- Nightscream is an Autobot-allied Mini-Con from the Classics portion of the Generation One continuity family.
- Clear Skies Team (Mini-Con Team, 2007)
- Nightscream transforms into a robotic winged dragon. He was only available as part of the Clear Skies Team, part of the second wave of Classics Mini-Cons, packaged with his teammates Steel Wind and Thunderwing.
- Nightscream's incongruous alternate mode when compared to his teammates is due to the Classics Mini-Cons' original release plans: as Cybertron-series Mini-Con two-packs. Nightscream was simply "left over" when his original pack-partner (currently unknown) was re-assigned, so he ended up with two aircraft on the theory "hey, he flies".
- Nightscream's mold was most likely going to be part of the original Decepticon-allied "Predator Attack Team" in the Cybertron line.
