War for Cybertron
Thundercracker, along with Skywarp, was one of Starscream's top lieutenants, who served him on board the orbital station. After Megatron took control of the station, Thundercracker, Starscream and Skywarp descended to Cybertron to reactivate the Energon bridge for Megatron in order to create Dark Energon. During the siege of Iacon, Thundercracker with his Seeker comrade provided air-support for the Decpticon ground forces, and later when Megatron, Soundwave, and Breakdown were locked in battle with Omega Supreme, Megatron ordered Starscream to distract Omega with an air-assault. The three Seekers then evaded Omega Supreme to fight in the main battle.
- Thundercracker's rear wings form a triangle when he hovers and go flat when he boosts, this the opposite to Skywarp and Starscream.
- Another difference is that the Decepticon symbol between the jet motors is placed a bit higher than those of Skywarp and Starscream (this is only seen when hovering).
- Skywarp thinks he's ugly, to which Thundercracker responds, "Ugly? You and I look the same!"
- His sentry is pretty useless, as you will be moving most of the level.
