Skullcruncher is a Decepticon Headmaster and an antagonist in the Transformers G1 cartoon. He also appears as a major antagonist in the Japanese sequel anime The Headmasters.
Weirdwolf was part of the team of Decepticons who participated in an operation to seize the key to the Plasma Energy Chamber from the Autobots. During the battle, the key was briefly used to open the Plasma Energy Chamber, causing it to throw both the key and several Autobots across the galaxy to the planet Nebulos. Weirdwolf and several other Decepticons were then sent to Nebulos to retrieve the key.
In the initial scuffle on the planet, the Decepticons managed to capture several of the Autobots, but the Autobots managed to rescue their allies by becoming binary bonded to a group of Nebulan rebels, turning them into powerful "Headmasters". Weirdwolf and the Decepticons later encountered Nebulos' corrupt ruling council, the Hive, and became binary-bonded with the members of the Hive to combat the Autobot Headmasters. Weirdwolf's head was thus re-engineered to become an exo-suit for the Hive member Monzo.
The Decepticon Headmasters then launched an attack the Autobots to retrieve the key. After stealing it from the Autobot Brainstorm, the Decepticon Headmasters all returned to Cybertron with their new Hive allies to help Galvatron fight off the Autobots on the planet. After pushing back the Autobot forces, Galvatron used the key to open the chamber, planning to use it to destroy Cybertron and Earth. After Galvatron's plan was foiled, Weirdwolf and the Decepticons escaped aboard Scorponok, only for a plasma energy shot to knock them into the depths of space.
Transformers: The Headmaster
Four million years ago, Weirdwolf was among a group of Cybertronians who left Cybertron under the leadership of Fortress to escape the eternal war that had consumed the planet. After crash landing on the planet Master, the Cybertronians made several technological quantum leaps to survive in the planet's inhospitable atmosphere and rapidly-changing environments, including the creation of larger, lifeless Transformer bodies called transtectors that would allow them to become "Headmasters". However, Weirdwolf and several others ended up rebelling against Fortress and siding with a traitor named Scorponok.
The traitorous Headmasters later pledged their allegiance to the Decepticon leader Galvatron and joined the Decepticons to assist them in defeating the Autobots. When Scorponok arrived to take command of the Headmasters, Weirdwolf became his second-in-command.
After the death of Scorponok, Weirdwolf and the other Decepticon Headmasters were forced to flee Earth.
Weirdwolf first appeared in the Headmasters mini-series, where he was among the Decepticons who accompanied Scorponok to Nebulos. Finding themselves facing Fortress Maximus and the Autobot Headmasters, Weirdwolf and many of Scorponok's other top warriors underwent the Headmaster process themselves, with Weirdwolf being bonded to a captured wrestler named Monzo. Now even matched with the Autobots, they managed to overpower and capture their opponents when they were distracted saving a group of Nebulans. Weirdwolf was later involved in the first battle with the Autobot Targetmasters. In the UK-exclusive story "Worlds Apart", Weirdwolf and his fellows ambushed a group of Autobot Headmasters but were defeated, although this was merely a ruse to stop the Autobots realising they were walking into a trap.
Weirdwolf made his first appearance in the main comic in Issue #38, where he and the rest of Scorponok's command pursued the Autobots to Earth, with Weirdwolf involved in the first battle against the Autobot Headmasters on the new planet. In "Time Wars", he was part of the team that followed Misfire in pursuing Highbrow and recovering Scorponok's head. They succeeded, but Weirdwolf and several others were displaced into limbo by the arrival of Hun-Gurr and the other future Decepticons from 2009, sitting out the subsequent battle.
Weirdwolf accompanied Scorponok to his first meeting with the Earth Decepticon faction led by Ratbat. Learning their counterparts were searching for the legendary Underbase, the Nebulan Decepticons ended up in a battle with them, during which Weirdwolf fought Astrotrain. When the Autobots arrived on the scene looking for the Earth Decepticons' captive Buster Witwicky, Weirdwolf fought against Hound.
Weirdwolf continued to be present with Scorponok's troops for the battle with Optimus Prime, and subsequently the Pretender Starscream, at the MacDill Air Force base, and the civil war with the breakaway Decepticon group led by Shockwave. He and the other Earth-based Transformers were recalled to Cybertron to defend it from Unicron, with Weirdwolf being among the survivors of the battle.
Finally, Weirdwolf took part in Bludgeon's assault on the planet Klo. He was part of the group led by Octopunch to hunt down Autobot survivors. Although Weirdwolf failed to notice Grimlock's party, Fangry did and they returned to ambush them. Despite this, a character that resembled either Weirdwolf or Ravage was later seen attacking Optimus Prime before being blown apart by Grimlock.
