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

Dirge strives to be so much more than a Decepticon from the Transformers Animated continuity family.


Dirge deserves to be more than a Starscream clone, and like the other clones, represents an aspect of the original's personality — in this case, his envy and greed. No altitude is high enough, no amount of fuel is sufficient, and no grab for power will ultimately satisfy him. He lives only for what he doesn't yet have.

This article is his and his alone. Stop reading it! You want an article to read? Get your own! On second thought, get your own, and then give it to him anyway.

  • Dirge (Activator, 2009)
A redeco of Activators Starscream, Dirge transforms into a futuristic, forward-swept wing fighter jet based upon the Su-47 (S-37) Berkut Experimental Fighter and the YF-19 "Alpha One" from the series Macross Plus. Like all Activators, he has a spring-loaded autotransformation from vehicle to robot mode.
This mold was also used to make Thundercracker. How dare he try to take what rightfully is not his!? And furthermore, how dare Hasbro make Dirge an Activator and not a Voyager?!
