Teleportation is a dangerous tool in the hands of a capable adversary. Thankfully for the Autobots, Skywarp is the Decepticon who possesses that ability. Skywarp’s not so bright, so without supervision he’s worthless as a warrior. He mostly uses his teleportation power for immature pranks on both friend and foe. He takes a charmingly puerile angle at thuggery, so his pranks are well-received amongst his Decepticon peers (excepting the victim, of course).
Because, come on, a surprise push down a staircase is hilarious.
? BCE (Before the Great War)
Megatron Origin 3 – Skywarp is introduced to Megatron by Soundwave as a flight-capable combatant. After his commander, Starscream swears undying allegiance to Megatron, they are all disappointed when they hear they will not be fighting in the Arena. Megatron proclaims he has a better job for them, and sends them to be modified by Hook.
A while later the Seekers come into action at the unveiling of senator Decimus’ statue. After Thundercracker attracts the attention of the crowd, Skywarp teleports in and shoots Decimus’ guards. After he pops out, the other two Seekers blast the rest of the guards, and kidnap senator Decimus.
Megatron Origin 4 – Skywarp attacks a civilian vessel, but Thundercracker has second thoughts about it. Skywarp tells him not to think but just do. They both fire on the ship and it crashes on a nearby building.
Skywarp is also a witness to Megatron killing Sentinel Prime during the fall of Kaon.
? BCE (Beginning of the Great War)

After a firefight with a group of Autobots which include Ironhide, Kup and Optimus, they manage to get a head start on their foes. Eventually, Blurr, newly recruited to the Autobot cause, drives right through them, toppling Skywarp.
