For his Heroic Counterpart see Dirge (SG)
The chilling rumble of Dirge's engines as they approach from a distance is merely a prelude to the petrifying fear they induce in whomever is unlucky enough to hear as they pass overhead. And fear is something with which Dirge is quite familiar. He knows its all-consuming power; he understands how it can defeat even the mightiest of armies. He handles it with the same exacting proficiency that a concert pianist handles his piano's keys. Even his fellow Decepticons are put off a bit by his mournful, silent manner. Ramjet sums up everyone's feelings: "He gives me the creeps."
He fears Tomahawk due to his slow speed is not his weakness but his missiles can down any fast planes within seconds.
Dirge later fought in the final battle of the Transformers Wars on Korriban and was killed by the Autobot Jets when the Aerialbots combined into Superion and shot him in the chest extinguishing his spark.
In Darth Grievous's evil vision of the future Dirge died destroying many Autobots during the attack on the last of the Heros last stand.
In jet mode, the sound from Dirge's engines has the uncanny effect of producing spine-tingling (circuit-tingling, in the cases of other robots) fear in nearly everyone who hears it. Apparently, the engines emit a combination of frequencies that has a disorienting, fear-provoking effect on the nervous systems of all those within earshot. He also carries two air-to-air missiles and two automatic machine guns plus an energon cannon for attacking strong foes.
