Swindle is a greedy con-artist Decepticon and is a major antagonist that appears throughout the Transformers franchise. Though his loyalties lie with Megatron, he is known for being a neutral weapons dealer who uses the war between the Autobots and Decepticons to his advantage by selling arms to both sides. He is also a Combaticon.
Transformers: The Game
In the game Transformers, Swindle serves as a main antagonist in the Autobot campaign. This version of Swindle is actually more of a mindless army of drones, being several enemy squads of nameless, characterless foot soldiers used simply as a nuisance to stop the player from advancing.
There were Autobot counterparts used to battle the player in the Decepticon campaign as well, and both sides were voiced by Fred Tatascoire (grunts only).

The team combined into barbaric Bruticus and stormed through the rest of the Autobot defenses, though in the process they damaged the transport so badly that it crashed, making the enraged Starscream have the Combaticons' arrested. Swindle and the Combaticons were later freed when Megatron was resurrected and kicked a defeated Starscream into hiding. They were aboard the Nemesis, a permanently transformed Trypticon flagship, as it pursued the Autobot's Ark. Swindle took part in the assault on the Autobot ship's engines as part of Bruticus. The giant took out many Autobots before he was taken down by the combined efforts of Jazz and the Aerialbots, the thwarted barbian flying into a mysterious black hole along with the rest of his Autobot and Decepticon peers alike.
- Swindle is voiced by Johnny Heymer in the G1 cartoon, Fred Tatascoire in the games, Fred Willard in Animated, and Steven Blum in Fall of Cybertron.
