The name or term Bonecrusher refers to more than one character or idea. For a list of other meanings, see Bonecrusher (disambiguation).

Bonecrusher is a Mini-Con from the Armada portion of the Unicron Trilogy continuity family.

Hail, the first Tiny God.

Bonecrusher doesn't say much. Most of what comes out of his mouth are inarticulate grunts. He's not stupid by any stretch, he's just basically uninterested in conversation, only caring about accomplishing a mission and busting a head or two. Despite the impression his general temperament gives at first, he's actually not a bad guy. He doesn't hit people unless there's a decent reason to... and he apparently is kind to --and protective of-- smaller creatures.

Japanese name: Bomb


Animated continuity

Armada cartoon

After the Exodus crashed on Earth, Bonecrusher lay dormant inside an ancient temple until being found and reactivated by the Decepticons. Though initially claimed by Demolishor, Megatron demanded he fork over the Mini-Con as soon as the battle was over, much to Demolishor's confusion and disappointment. Palace

He and Leader-1 are able to pummel Perceptor when the large Mini-Con Combiner tries to attack Megatron. Ruin

Walk, don't gun run. Bonecrusher's on the left.

Once he was reunited with Knock Out and Wreckage, however, the team eventually sent a signal to contact the Mini-Cons recovered by the Autobots. This ultimately led to a confrontation in which the Land Military Team, as well as many of the other Decepticon Mini-Cons, chose to join the Autobot side. Vow

Bonecrusher and the others remained with the Autobots, eventually following them to Cybertron and coming together to fight their evil creator Unicron.

Dreamwave comics continuity


Bonecrusher and the Land Military Team were captured and altered by the Decepticons to be used as weapons of conquest millions of years ago. They escaped aboard the Exodus with most other Mini-Cons, and declared themselves free agents upon reactivating on Earth. Nonetheless, at the request of Alexis, Carlos and Rad, they freed Jolt, Longarm and Sparkplug from Decepticon captivity and helped them save the Autobots from the Decepticons.

Later they were taken against their will to Dualor's moonbase. Following the destruction and abandonment of the moonbase, the Land Military Team stayed with the Autobots, where they were instrumental in separating Star Saber from Megatron's grip after he used it to destroy the invading Galvatron.

Finally, Bonecrusher joined with all other active Mini-Cons in returning to Cybertron and activating Over-Run's Mini-Con Matrix, incapacitating Unicron and leading to his destruction.

Panini comics

Bonecrusher, Knock Out and Wreckage were recovered in 1959 by the US government in Las Vegas. They were converted into remote-control military equipment by the Extra-Terrestrial Response Division, but overrode their control long enough to give a message to Rev Amos Hume before being recaptured. After the ETRD's funding was cut decades later, former technicians Quint and Hathaway attempted to auction the Mini-Cons off. The transaction was interrupted by the arrival of an Autobot shuttle carrying the Air Defense Mini-Con Team and their human friends, whom Hume had contacted upon seeing images of the Transformers on television. Bonecrusher and the others then presumably joined the Autobots.
