General Cicadacon is a member of the Tripredacus Council.

A Predacon Elder, the cruel and clever Cicadacon is suspected of being very old, indeed. His knowledge of Cybertronian history, especially military history and tactics, is encyclopedic, stretching back even to the era before the Great War. Some suspect he may have once had a Decepticon identity, but if this is true, no records of that identity survive. Regardless of the truth of his origin, Cicadacon uses the stories and rumors to engender fear and respect in his followers. Despite his tactical genius, Cicadacon's long-term strategy against the Maximals has become increasingly unpopular with the more impatient Predacon forces.

He uses chopping rotor blades to spread plague-like destruction and combines with his fellow council members to form Tripredacus.

  • Tripredacus (1997)
    • Accessories: Two swords
Cicadacon transforms into a green cicada (who'da thought). The toy has twin "blades" that store on its wings. These blades become missiles for Tripredacus's weapon. Cicadacon transforms into the head and chest of Tripredacus. The toy's instructions also referred to his insect beak as a "nasal cannon", although this has not been backed up in the sourcebooks.
This mold was recolored and released in Japan as DJ.
