- The Predacons are a faction of evil Cybertronians from the Robots in Disguise continuity.
The Predacons are ruthless conquerers from the planet Cybertron, lead by Megatron. When they reached Earth they found their old enemy Optimus Prime and his Autobots already there waiting for them. Megatron claims they ravaged many worlds in the past. How they managed this, since they arrived on Earth almost out of power and fairly hopelessly incompetant is unknown.
Eventually Megatron also gained the Decepticon sub-group as troops and a strong rivalry developed between the militaristic Decepticons and the bumbling Predacons.
There is a governing body on Cybertron called the Predacon Council, who seem to have some authority over Megatron.
