* FaceHeelTurn: According to ''Ask Vector Prime'', at least one version of him turned good when Unicron killed that reality's Primus, and the Liege died doing in the destroyer.

YouDontLookLikeYou: He finally received a toy in ''Power of the Primes''. Said toy is a tiny Headmaster-like thing that doesn't resemble the Liege ''at all''. Even the shell it comes with looks more like Skullgrin.

* ToylessToylineCharacter: Until 2014, when he got a toy in ''Generations''. Which doesn't look much like him.

!!Sharkticons
A ravenously hungry horde of transforming robots who turn into sharks, the Sharkticons serve as the Quintessonian muscle and their main method of execution. They're also not very bright, and could easily be turned against their masters if given half a chance.

* DumbMuscle: Sharkticons are not very bright.
* EliteMooks: The Allicons are their smarter, bigger, nastier cousins, who turn into alligators. They're usually higher up the food chain than the Sharkticons.
* EpicFlail: Sharkticons can detail their tails to use as flails. So far, none have been shown doing this in fiction.
* FatBastard: Both shark and robot modes look pretty chubby. But then, they do eat a lot.
* MixAndMatchCritter: Despite the name, Sharkticons look like a mix of sharks and piranhas.
* SlaveRace: For the Quintessons.
* ZergRush: Sharkticons aren't very smart, not very strong and not very durable. Their advantage lies in swarming enemies and devouring them.

* ManBehindTheMan: To Jhiaxus.

to:

* AdaptationalWimp: When your original incarnation is the head of a massive empire and ludicrously huge... anything else is going to be something of a let down. His modern day incarnations are regular-sized, and slightly less harmful in their approach.
* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: According to the non-cannon but Furman-written ''Allingment'', the Liege's goal was to become a god like Primus and Unicron. Pretty much no other version of him has displayed this trait, though (aside from a nod in the Facebook ''Ask Vector Prime'' page).
* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: Cybertronians are already big by human standards. This guy is somewhere upward of a hundred feet and counting.
* FaceHeelTurn: According to ''Ask Vector Prime'', at least one version of him turned good when Unicron killed that reality's Primus, and the Liege died doing in the destroyer.
* ManBehindTheMan: To Jhiaxus.Jhiaxus, and the Cybertronian Empire as a whole.
* ObviouslyEvil: Giant, deep red eyes, covered in spikes, burning stump where his left hand should be. Yup, he's pretty evil.




to:

* PrecursorVillain: His G2 incarnation was implied to be Megatron's ancestor.



* ArcVillain: In ''Regeneration One'', he's the villain for the last full arc.
* TheBerserker: His G2 incarnation tries to repress his older, more brutal nature. When everything goes to crap for him in the finale, he lets loose, and beats Optimus within an inch of his life. Only the fact that the Swarm shows up stops him from crushing Optimus' head.
* BigBad: He's the main villain of the G2 comics. However, in terms of actual scope, he's barely TheHeavy.



* MadScientist: Experimented on Cybertronians without their consent.

The general of the Liege Maximo's Cybertronian Empire in the G2 comics. Alternatively, Jhiaxus was a crew member on the ''Ark-1'' and serves as Nova Prime's pet mad scientist; his obsession with forcing Cybertronian evolution has led him to introduce gender to the Transformer race, modify his own body into a form resembling [[TransformersFilmSeries that of Bayformer Starscream]], and the creation of both [[CombiningMecha gestalt]] and [[PintSizedPowerhouse Micromaster technology]].

* OffTheScale: Usually, stats are 1 to 10 for a Transformer. Unicron's stats whenever a toy of his full body is released has many of his stats listed as unknown. One online retailer exclusive figure has them set at '''''Infinity'''''

* {{Expy}}: Of Angra Mainyu, the leader of the forces of evil in UsefulNotes/{{Zoroastrianism}}. He fits this role better than the Christian {{Satan}} given that he's a dark mirror of the Creator with roughly equal power rather than an inferior pretender.

* CosmicKeystone: If Primus dies, reality tends to get a little... ah, ''weird''. The bizarre nature of the Japanese G1 continuity has been put down to his near-destruction during ''Headmasters''.



* SuperPersistantPreditor: Doesn't matter where Primus goes or where he hides himself. Unicron will hunt him down for as long as it takes.

* BareHandedBladeBlock: He manages to catch Grimlock's energon sword one handed. Even more impressive given the properties of energon swords on Cybertronians mean it's like a lightsaber for them. And it doesn't even ''annoy'' the guy.



* NighInvulnerable: Primus made him to fight Unicron directly, and it shows. Throughout ''The Dark Ages'', pretty much nothing the Autobots try on him does anything. It takes divine intervention to get rid of him.



* WreathedInFlames: The eldritch energies contained within The Fallen's body cause him to appear constantly ablaze in unholy fire.

to:

* SealedEvilInACan: After his deal with Unicron, he got thrown into subspace. The Decepticons and their early tinkering with Space Bridges let him loose.
* TankGoodness: His alt-mode is a tank, though he's never shown using it in his appearances.
* WreathedInFlames: The eldritch energies contained within The Fallen's body cause him to appear constantly ablaze in unholy fire.
fire. Sadly, every depiction of him since his first appearance has done without this.

=>'''Voiced by''': Various; Regis Cordic, Roger C. Carmel, and Jack Angel were the primary voices.

* FailedASpotCheck: He claims to be able to track Unicron's presence. Somehow, he failed to notice Unicron until he was quite literally right on top of him (something Kup even points out. How the hell do you miss a guy the size of a planet?)



* GuileHero: The original version of his and Unicron's origin had Primus tricking both of them into asteroids.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: His G1 comic incarnation took ''Galvatron'' at his word.
* KingInTheMountain: In most continuities, he's sleeping to hide himself from Unicron, and will only wake up when "all are one". As can be guessed, he doesn't wake up very often.
* LightIsNotGood: He created the entire Cybertronian race to serve as little more than cannon-fodder. During the G1 comic, he loudly appointed Optimus leader of the combined Autobot-Decepticon forces knowing Unicron's sleeper-agents would target him directly.



* AlwaysABiggerFish: While they haven't come into direct conflict (yet), Unicron has just recently been trumped as the biggest threat in the franchise, by the [[EldritchAbomination Elder]] [[HyperspaceIsAScaryPlace Gods]].

* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: According to the first versions of their origin, atleast, Unicron managed to turn his asteroid prison into a planet first. Primus stole the idea of transforming from him.



* DealWithTheDevil: Occasionally the Chaosbringer will see fit to empower mortal creatures with a fragment of his essence, upgrading their bodies and granting them new abilities in order to carry out whatever tasks he requires of them. The most well-known of these Heralds of Unicron is [[TransformersTheMovie Galvatron]], though there have been many others, and not all of them exhibit the same degree of independence and free will as Galvatron did. Unicron cares little for his pawns, however, and in the end his goals call for their consumption as well.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilCannotComprehendGood: Going by what he says after Optimus forces the Matrix down his throat in the comics, Unicron actually doesn't understand concepts of good or love or life.


Added DiffLines:

* KnightOfCerebus: Unicron outshines every other Knight in Transformers. If he shows up, the situation is officially beyond bad.


Added DiffLines:

* MadeOfEvil: His internals are either Dark Energon or Angolmois, depending on the continuity. Neither of them are recommended by the surgeon general (Angolmois in particular can mutate the body). Curiously, in some continuities both substances have been able to create life.


Added DiffLines:

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: In one instance, as he was getting close to Cybertron, Unicron was so determined to kill Primus he completely passed by a perfectly good planet.
