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

Divebomb is a Decepticon from the live-action movie continuity family.

Voiced by Richard Kiel.

Divebomb has a problem.

(Cue high-hat riff)

Despite being an intelligent tactician, an excellent aerial combatant, and an otherwise model Decepticon, his reactor containment module is defective, so wherever he goes, toxic fumes go with him, and circuit-scrambling radiation waves constantly leak out.

In short, he is a smelly loser whom no one likes.


The Reign of Starscream


Turn on your wipers.

Divebomb sided with Dreadwing in the Decepticon rebellion against Starscream. While he was battling the Autobot Skyblast, he was grabbed by the cheesed-off Starscream, thrown into the cockpit of Dreadwing's ship, and then used as a living (and unwilling) incendiary device.

Obviously, he did not survive the experience. The Reign of Starscream Issue Number Five

  • Divebomb (Deluxe, 2008)
    • Accessories: Missile, Planet X-type Cyber Planet Key
Movie Divebomb toy

In Soviet Russia, banana peels YOU!

A Wal-Mart-exclusive redeco of Cybertron Thundercracker, Divebomb transforms into a Sukhoi Su-35 fighter jet. Inserting a Cyber Planet Key into his rear fuselage pops up the back panel, revealing a spring-loaded missile launcher. This assembly becomes his left forearm in robot mode, despite being almost as long as he is tall.
Divebomb is also slightly retooled from the previous releases of the mold, adding a small catch to his left shoulder assembly so the damn thing stays upright in robot mode. This clip is easily broken if you're careless.
This mold was also used to make the Cybertron version of Skywarp.

Revenge of the Fallen

  • Divebomb (Scout, 2009)
Divebomb is a re-paint of Ransack. He transforms into WWI German Albatros D.III with a color scheme based on the plane of Manfred von Richthofen, "The Red baron".


  • His circuit-scrambling radioactivity and toxic fumes could be interpreted as a reference to Sunstorm.
  • While Divebomb's features a movie-styled Decepticon insignia on one tailfin, his Cyber Key has a conventional one.
