Skyblast is an aerial daredevil. Feeling himself literally above all the others, he doesn't want people's friendship, but he will happily take their admiration. He corkscrews through the air easily, creating intricate patterns with his exhaust fumes while downing Decepticon fliers left and right.
As a recruit, Skyblast underwent training missions with Ironhide, said training being "attack that heavily armed Decepticon base!" Skyblast provided the covering fire for that one.
He's gone up in the world since then - in the alternate reality where the Decepticons conquered Earth, Skyblast was seemingly the leader of the Autobot reinforcements hiding on the moon. He knew all they had going for them was the element of surprise - he didn't know the Decepticons knew about them Starscream was right on top of them. He was unable to put up any fight and was almost speared by Scorponok, and the quicker-thinking Arcee took charge. Skyblast headed for his pre-designated target of Hoover Dam and in the resulting battle against Megatron, he was nearly killed until Optimus Prime stepped in.until
Aside from finding the All Spark fragment , Skyblast's main contribution on Earth has been engaging in multiple battles to protect human sites and convoys from Decepticon attack. The fact the Autobots' are outnumbered is getting to him.
IDW Comics continuityEdit
Before the war, whilst Megatron was away in battle, Optimus Prime, Jazz and Prowl broke into Megatron's quarters to find out why he was behaving so strangely. Skyblast contacted Prowl to warn him that the battle was over and Megatron was returning to his quarters.
Skyblast was part of a group of Autobots who decided to stay behind on Cybertron whilst a large group of their forces went searching for the All Spark. After Arcee returned he took part in a planned rescue to free a group of Autobots who has been captured and chained up to a replica of the All Spark. After Dreadwing rebelled against Starscream he followed Arcee's group and attempted to lay down some cover fire, however he quickly became engaged in a dogfight with Divebomb. Soon after he dueled him in a mid-air battle whilst in robot mode, however he was soon 'saved' by Starscream who, viewing traitors as worse than enemies, grabbed Divebomb by the neck and flew off with him. Soon after the battle was over and the Autobots had succeeded with their mission.
