“C’mon guys, wait up…” You can’t help but feel sorry for Scavenger. He wants so badly to be liked and needed, to feel like a useful and valuable member of his team. His self esteem is so low he’d do just about anything to get the approval of the others, but his simpering, doting eagerness to please just reinforces the other Decepticons’ opinion of him as a worthless loser. He’s constantly excavating everywhere he goes in the attempt to find something of worth to please everyone and prove his value, but it’s invariably just some piece of garbage or scrap he excitedly finds, and that just reinforces their opinion of his worthlessness once again. If it wasn’t for his shovel’s unique ability to detect needed materials, Megatron and the others would likely have dumped the poor scrub long ago.
? BCE (Before the Great War)
Megatron Origin 2 – Scavenger and the other Constructicons built arena sites on Cybertron for the illegal gladitorial matches. At one point, Megatron, together with Rumble and Frenzy arrived too early. There they met Soundwave who offered weapons and technology. Megatron discovered two spies, and killed them both, learning that the gladiators were hunted by the Autobots. Megatron ordered Scrapper to quit building and leave the site.
Megatron Origin 3 – As the other Constructicons, Scavenger makes repairs to Megatron’s gladiator team after a fight. He was there when Soundwave came in and introduced the Seekers to Megatron.
