Trypticon is a colossal Godzilla-like Decepticon & the groups' most strongest weapon ever known. He has 3 modes, consisting of his Godzilla-like robot mode, a city & a mobile battle station. Though a ruthless killer who enjoyed his battles well, he doubts whether if his allegiance to the Decepticons is indeed right. He is aided by by Decepticon drones named Full-Tilt & Brunt & is shown to be the sworn nemesis of both Omega Supreme and Metroplex. In his defeat, he turned into Megatron's battleship known as the Nemesis.

G1 Transformers Cartoon
First appearing in the 5-part episode "5 Faces of Darkness" in the year 2005, Trypticon was created by the Constructicons after the Decepticons formed an alliance with the Quintessons, using a populated human city as a source. After being created, he frightened off most of the humans living within his body before transforming into his theropod mode. Trypticon's first mission was to destroy Autobot Headquarters, but met a small resistance of who tried to stop him. He knocks Powerglide out of the way & beated the rest of the Autobot ground forces, stepping on Swerve in the process before finally destroying the Ark for good. After finishing this mission, Trypticon heads toward Autobot City to destroy it, leaving a disabled Metroplex at risk. The collosal Autobot was however saved with the arrival of Blurr, Wheelie & Sky Lynx, who had Metroplex' transformation cog. Sky Lynx distracted the Decepticons to give Blurr & Wheelie enough time to insert Metroplex' transformation cog, enabling him to transform into robot mode. The collosal Autobot gained an upper hand when he beat up Trypticon for good & hurled him into the horizon, crashing into the Pacific Ocean.
Trypticon was voiced by Brad Garrett, who would later voice Grease Pit in Biker Mice from Mars and would later play Robert in Everybody Loves Raymond.
Trypticon made his one and only appearance in the Marvel US comic in Issue #27. He was despatched to Earth by the Cybertronian Decepticon commander Ratbat as a favour to the Earth Decepticons, a one-off lending of resource to deal with the Earth Autobots. Trypticon launched an attack on the Ark, aided by his assistant Wipe-Out, decimating an Autobot advance party whilst using sonic-scrambler missiles to prevent Autobot reinforcements from reaching them. When he also tried to kill young human Rachel Becker, it prompted first Grimlock and then the rest of the Dinobots to enter the fray, keeping Trypticon busy until Ratbat recalled him to Cybertron, declaring he had exceeded his fuel allowance.
Trypticon’s only other appearance was in the UK-exclusive story “Meltdown”, when Flywheels brought him to assist the Autobots against their mutual enemy, the insane Autobot scientist Flame, who was about to activate a poorly-managed reactor that would go critical and destroy Cybertron. Trypticon smashed down the door to Flame’s control room and fought Flame’s zombie army. Curiously, he was not seen among the group assembled after Flame’s engines exploded and appeared to be too big to fit through the hatch Emirate Xaaron used to escape, making his fate unclear (although Xaaron does make a reference to “Decepticons” being among the survivors).

While his jetpack was destroyed, Trypticon fell from orbit and crashed to Iacon to fight Optimus, Bumblebee and Iacon. He easily defeated the newly arrived Aerialbots but gotten defeated by the Autobots and fell into the Energon Lake by Optimus and his Energon Axe.

After Megatron was resurrected and disposed Starscream from his leadership, Megatron and his army wage war against the Autobots to get to Trypticon. After reached Trypticon, Megatron decouple Trypticon's body stabilizers and reattached him. After defeated the Autobots, Soundwave informed Megatron of Trypticon remained in deep stasis and attempted to repair the damage Trypticon received from his last battle only for Megatron denied of repairs. Megatron told to Trypticon (if he could hear his leader) that this is not a rescue mission. Despite of his great power, Megatron punished Trypticon for his failure of killing Optimus Prime. Soundwave recalled to Megatron that Trypticon will be stuck in his newly alternative form permanently due to the damage he sustained which he didn't care and ordered Soundwave to begin the Nemesis Protocol turning the useless Cybertronian monster into a battleship.
Years later after transformed into the Nemesis, Trypticon was revived by Dark Energon and regain his controls.
