Dirge and a second Decepticon joined Megatron in assaulting an Autobot training facility. On their way through, Dirge saw fit to instruct his leader on some of the nuances of battle. When they encountered Jetfire, Dirge was blasted, and unable to aid Megatron in battle, but Jetfire was defeated anyhow. The pair were contacted by Soundwave a short time later, to let them know he'd located the Trypticon space station. Dirge was later at the training facility when Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Jetfire cleansed it of Decepticon invaders, and was himself defeated in battle by the Autobot leader.
Dirge left Cybertron aboard the Nemesis, serving as one of Starscream's elite Seekers. He and his Air Commander were sent by Megatron in advance to spring a trap set by the Star Seekers, rather than risk the Nemesis itself.
Later, Dirge and many Decepticons were captured by the Quintessons and placed on trial on the planet Aquatron. After Starscream abandoned them and Megatron was lost in the bowels of the city, Dirge led the Decepticons in escaping captivity alongside their Autobot counterparts.
