The Predacons are a Decepticon sub-group in the Transformers Generation 1 continuity family. These five ferocious warriors are highly skilled hunters, often charged with seeking out targets of interest whom they track and eliminate with extreme prejudice. While they wear the Decepticon badge, the Predacons primarily operate as a mercenary group. They are best known for their choice of alt-mode: mechanical versions of Earth-based animals.
