- Violen Jiger is a Decepticon Emperor of Destruction from the Transformers Zone portion of the Generation One continuity family.
Violen Jiger (バイオレンジャイガー Baiorenjaigā) is a supernatural being born from the culmination of many angry Decepticon souls. He has three faces, all of them hideous and malformed and demony. He is apparently capable of separating into three enormous, insect-like creatures: Vion, Lenja and Igern. After the demise of Deathsaurus, he became the New Decepticon Emperor. Violen Jiger's supernatural powers give him the ability to resurrect dead Decepticons, give them enhanced powers and even make them grow in size.

Violen Jiger's first act was to gather the Nine Great Demon Generals from Decepticon history; Bruticus, Predaking, Abominus, Menasor, King Poseidon, Devastator, BlackZarak, Trypticon and Overlord. He ordered his Decepticon Generals to lay waste to Planet Feminia, completely destroying the world and nearly killing Victory Saber in the process.
He then ordered his Generals attack the Autobot headquarters on Planet Zone and steal their Energon Z, a powerful new energy-source. Following that, his greatest ambition was to obtain the Zodiac, a primordial orb which supposedly birthed all life in the known universe, which he planned to combine with the Energon Z to create a new "Decepticon Zone."
Violen Jiger ultimately succeeded in acquiring the Zodiac, and was tracked to the newly-discovered tenth planet in the solar system by Dai Atlas, Sonic Bomber and Road Fire, which was revealed to have been his birthplace. There, he separated into his three insectoid components and gave the Powered Masters a run for their money, until they were finally able to beat him back and reclaim the Zodiac. At that point, Violen Jiger revealed his true form—a phoenix-like flaming mass of Decepticon spirits—but through the power of the Zodiac, the Powered Masters combined into Big Powered and destroyed him. The Tenth Planet was freed from the miasma of evil that Violen Jiger had surrounded it with, and became a true paradise for humans and Transformers alike.
