Saberhorn is a pirate like Hammerstrike, and a Decepticon whose robot mode and flying mode resembles a beetle.

Eventually, he was sent out to obtain thermotanium. He was collecting some from a quarry near Crown City when he encountered Bumblebee, Strongarm and Grimlock, but he was able to make off with a collection of ore. He took it to a steel mill to smelt it, and was again found by the Autobots. He seized Russell Clay as a hostage and almost succeeded in melting down Bumblebee, but was forced to flee after Grimlock grabbed him. He returned to the Alchemor wreck where his bosses were unimpressed with his antics.
In Misdirection, Saberhorn was in attendance after Steeljaw returned to the base with a group of recently freed Alchemor escapees for Glowstrike's consideration, reflecting fondly on Steeljaw's potential and noting Scorponok's "betrayal" to their cause.
In Portals, when Steeljaw was talking to his troops about the chain of command, Saberhorn and Glowstrike arrived to have a word with him. Steeljaw assumed that they were onto his betrayal and prepared to annihilate them, but was instead shocked to learn that they were offering him a leadership position. As a display of his power and loyalty, Saberhorn, Glowstrike, and Sreeljaw dealt with a suspected terrorist amongst their ranks. Their conversation with Steeljaw ended when they walked into a weapons room and Glowstrike mentioned that there was a pod of Deception hunters that they needed help opening.
In Decepticon Island (Part 1), Saberhorn and Glowstrike didn't take lightly to being summoned by Steeljaw, but they were more than impressed when he opened the weapons container. Saberhorn then asked Steeljaw to hand them over, but instead, Steeljaw turned his new-found weapons on Saberhorn and Glowstrike. During their later confrontation against the Autobots, Saberhorn and Glowstrike bowed to Steeljaw as he claimed the Alchemor to be the first outpost of his new empire.
In Decepticon Island (Part 2), Saberhorn accused Steeljaw of stealing the island after he was kindly accepted to be one of their own, but Steeljaw counters with a sarcastic statement. After their skirmish with the Autobots, resulting in Windblade's capture, Glowstrike held Bumblebee's dropped Decepticon Hunter against Steeljaw as Saberhorn stood by her, but Steeljaw reacted quickly by shooting down both Saberhorn and Glowstrike. Saberhorn was most likely re-frozen after the Autobots detonated a stasis bomb in the ship's ventilation system, along with the other Decepticons.
Personality and Traits
Saberhorn treats every combat like a duel and false sense of honor. He also speaks with a stereotypical old English accent and relishes a good challenge. After the events in Misdirection, he seems to fill the role of command that Scorponok had filled but he learned from Steeljaw about Scorponok's "betrayal". Although as Saberhorn began to display trust and praised Steeljaw for the latter's loyalty to their cause, Saberhorn was utterly irked over Steeljaw's betrayal when Steeljaw used the two Decepticon Hunters in the ship's vault against Saberhorn and Glowstrike to gain control over their leadership.
Powers and Abilities
Saberhorn is a skilled sword fighter with both single bladed swordplay and double bladed swordplay. He can use his head horn to fence as well.
