Starscream appears in the 2007 animated series. He transforms into a futuristic harrier jet, (sporting a notable similarity to the Variable Fighters of Macross fame in his transformation sequence) and resembles his Generation 1 counterpart in both design, personality, and ambitions. He flies at high speeds in both modes, and wields his trademark null-rays, though these function simply as powerful lasers. He's unintentionally comical in this incarnation displaying a degree of incompetence similar to his animated G1 counterpart. However, this incarnation displays a resolute tenacity towards his objective, shown by his flying around in a brutally-damaged Nemesis to track down the Allspark's energy signature for 50 years by himself. Unlike his G1 namesake, Starscream is far from cowardly and is an excellent warrior, since he almost single-handedly took down all of the Autobots in a battle over the Allspark. During season 2, upon being resurrected by a shard of the Allspark embedded on his forehead, Starscream displays a sense of perseverance in the series, making numerous attempts to eliminate Megatron before and after being destroyed by the Decepticon leader. He also can't tell the difference between any two humans.

In the Japanese translation of Transformers: Animated, the story has been changed to make it a prequel to the 2007 Transformers film. This makes this version of Starscream an earlier version of the film character.

Famous quotes containing the word animated:

    Uncle Ben’s brass bullet-mould
    And powder horn, and Major Bogan’s face
    Above the fire, in the half-light, plainly said
    There’s naught to kill but the animated dead;
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
