I take no orders from you, instead, I take your LIFE FORCE!! There is nothing like dining at home, or is that... on home?!
~ Tornedron betraying Primacron before attempting to kill him and Grimlock.

Tornedron is a gigantic monstrous energy creation created by Primacron. He is the main antagonist of the G1 Transformers episode "Call of the Primitives". It is a shapeshifting energy monster that can take various forms and drain energy from various lifeforms and separate to hunt multiple prey at once and then reforming into different forms. It can also be considered as the brother of Unicron

It was voiced by Neil Ross.

Biography

Tornedron started out as a tiny atom, which was later fed with flame and an Energon cube, resulting to make Tornedron growing in size and power. Primacron then ordered it to fly across the universe and devour anything on its path. It first ate a comet, turning it into a lump of coal. It then attacks Cybertron and drains the planet of its energy, as well as the Autobots residing and guarding the area. Primacron is impressed by his creation's success, claiming it has succeeded its predecessor Unicron.

It then headed towards the moon, where the Autobot forces (led by Rodimus Prime) and the Decepticon forces (led by Galvatron) are fighting, but were left confused after the animal-themed Transformers of both sides, known as "Primitives", left the scenery due hearing a call from a mysterious voice. Tornedron drained the energy of both Autobots and Decepticons (including Rodimus Prime and Galvatron) while the Primitives managed to escape.

The Primitives head over to a empty planet where they meet a disembodied energy being known as the Oracle, who was Primacron's former assistant. The Oracle told the Primitives about Primacron and the origins of Unicron, and the Primitives' natural instincts can be used to stop Tornedron. As such, the Primitives agreed to destroy Tornedron in order to save the universe.

Tornedron betraying Primacron, about to feast on his creator.

Tornedron soon arrived on the planet and drained Trypticon, seemingly crushing Grimlock in the process. Sky Lynx attacks to avenge him, but to no avail as his weapons are useless and ended up getting drained as well. The Dinobots, Predacons, Terrorcons and Mini-Cassettes split up in hopes of confusing Tornedron since it can't chase them all, but unfortunately, Tornedron splits into four various forms and drained the Primitives one by one. Satisfied that his mission is complete, Tornedron heads back to Primacron to inform of his success. Unknown to Tornedron, Grimlock had actually survived being crushed and followed him behind the shadows back to Primacron's lab.

Upon returning, Tornedron turned against Primacron, by deciding to drain him as well. Primacron panics and tried his best to regain control of Tornedron, only to fail. However, Grimlock arrives and throws the reverse switch, reversing Tornedron's energy polarity, killing it in the process and returning all life over the galaxy. To make sure Primacron won't cause any more trouble, Grimlock destroys his lab in celebration and claimed it is the "smartest" thing that he has ever done.

Trivia

  • Despite being a one-shot minor villain, Tornedron is considered as one of the worst and most dangerous Transformers villains ever known, as it is known to be a far greater threat than its predecessor Unicron as it is able to drain trillions of lifeforms without breaking a sweat.
  • It's similar to another monstrous creature from the same universe known as the Dweller, in which both drains the energy of whatever they come into contact with.
    • Though while Tornedron leaves its victims into a completely lifeless monochrome colored corpses, the Dweller turns its victims into mindless zombie-like beings.
      • Also the Dweller is a trans-organic creature while Tornedron is a being of pure energy.
