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

Terradive is a Decepticon from the Generation 2 portion of the Generation One continuity family.

Guess what? He's evil and doesn't like Autobots.

Terradive doesn't think much beyond "follow orders" and "shoot Autobots". He's all about brute force, mostly there to be pointed in the right direction and let loose on enemies.

Pre-release name: Terraswoop


Generation 2 Fleetway UK comic

Terradive was part of Bludgeon's forces sent to Earth to smash stuff as a ploy to draw out Optimus Prime. When Megatron appeared to take back Decepticon leadership, Tornado retrieved Hawk and Terradive, who were attacking a squad of Autobots, so they could tackle Megatron.

Things didn't go too well for Terradive then. When the Dinobots arrived, Snarl shot Terradive down. He was presumably taken prisoner by the Autobots afterwards.

(Note: This being a UK story, Windrazor and Eagle Eye use their European names "Tornado" and "Hawk", respectively.)


Generation 2

  • Terradive (Skyscorcher, 1993/1994)
Terradive transforms into a Ling-Temco-Vought A-7E Corsair II jet. His undercarriage radar becomes a hand-held non-firing blaster weapon for robot mode.
He was originally sold in the European market in 1993 as part of the "transitional" line that used the Generation 2 faction symbols, but lacked the new subline name. He was later released in the US, with no notable changes, as part of the Generation 2 line. He was then later re-released in the European version of Generation 2 in 1994.



Roger, tower, which way is the sky?

Terradive's mold was one of several intended to be used in the post-G2 Takara Block Town line, as an Autobot. To be redecoed in blue with green, he was to come with the TFBT-2 Control Tower Set, a building-block control tower that could be rebuilt into a battle station of some form. This set ultimately never came to release.

In 2005, a supposed Takara "release" schedule listed the Block Town sets among several other future items coming out. Only the Galaxy Force items on that list saw release, however (and some only as store exclusives to boot).

Since very little information exists on the line's more fictional aspects, it is unknown if this toy was to be the same general character Terradive, or a new character altogether, thought the whole "Autobot" thing leans heavily towards "new".
