    Product Description
    This article is about the Decepticon Horrorcon from Generation 1. For the Decepticon from Animated, see Snapdragon (Animated).Snapdragon is a Decepticon Horrorcon from the Generation 1 continuity family. Surprisingly, mauling Daniel did not make him an instant fan favorite.What Blot does through carelessness, Snapdragon does with deliberation. He loves nothing more than bathing in putrid grease pits or, if those aren't available, the running fuel from his victims' corpses. His bouts of animalistic fury and sheer love of destruction would make him an excellent warrior if not for the fact that he's also as lazy as the Empties in the Dead End. His personal quarters are littered with alarm clocks shot to fragments by laser fire because Snapdragon just wasn't motivated to kill and maim that morning. His fellow Decepticons know they risk suffering a similar fate if they try to wake him, but often risk it in the hopes of channeling Snapdragon's rage towards the Autobots. Woe to the Autobot warrior who faces Snapdragon without his beauty rest. However, his laziness and appalling personal habits make him unwelcome among his fellow Decepticons, except for the equally thuggish Apeface.He is binary bonded with Krunk, who only adds to his thuggish personality.Contents1 Fiction1.1 The Transformers cartoon1.2 Japanese Generation 1 cartoon continuity1.2.1 The Headmasters cartoon1.2.2 The Headmasters manga1.2.3 Super-God Masterforce manga1.3 Marvel The Transformers comics1.4 Ladybird Generation 1 books1.5 Swamp of the Scorpion1.6 IDW Generation 1 continuity2 Commercial appearances3 Games3.1 The Transformers (PS2)3.1.1 Autobot story3.1.2 Decepticon story3.2 Transformers Legends4 Toys4.1 Generation 15 Notes5.1 Foreign names Fiction The Transformers cartoonVoice actor: Dan Gilvezan (English), Takao Ishii (Japanese) "You smell, Snapdragon". "And you're annoying, Apeface." "Good point. Let's be friends."Snapdragon was one of the Decepticon animals who attacked Autobot City as a diversion, so that the Decepticon Clones could steal the Key to the Plasma Energy Chamber. After a quick game of "kick the can" with Freeway, Snapdragon retreated and joined Scourge's unit in journeying to the Chamber, where the Sweeps leader fouled up and lost the Key to the Autobots. Galvatron sent Snapdragon and the others with Scourge, as they tracked the Autobots who recovered the Key to Nebulos. While there, Snapdragon caught Arcee's hand in his jaws, prompting Daniel Witwicky to leap to her defense. Snapdragon then mauled Daniel, leaving him for dead as the Decepticons cleared out with their prisoners. The Rebirth, Part 1 Unfortunately, the mauling of Daniel led the remaining Autobots to develop Headmasters, and they rescued their friends from Snapdragon's Decepticons. When his leaders made a deal with the evil Hive to counter the Autobots' advantage, Snapdragon gave up his head (well, one of them) to be binary-bonded to the Nebulan known as Krunk. The Rebirth, Part 2After the Decepticons recovered the Key, they fled Nebulos and returned to Cybertron in Scorponok, the massive battle platform created by the Hive ruler, Zarak. Although they reunited with Galvatron, the Decepticon Headmasters and Targetmasters were forced to contend with an Autobot battle platform of equal ferocity...Fortress Maximus. Eventually, Snapdragon and the Decepticons were trapped on board Scorponok when an explosion of plasma energy rocketed them out into space, leaving Cybertron behind. The Rebirth, Part 3 Japanese Generation 1 cartoon continuity The Headmasters cartoonVoice actor: Kazuo Oka (Japanese) Snapdragon and Apeface were loyal followers of Scorponok on the planet Master. Before the Headmasters of Evil abandoned Master to join the Decepticons, the duo were captured and banished into the depths of space by Fortress and his allies for their crimes. Sometime later, they were found and contacted by Galvatron, who brought them into the Decepticon ranks. Snapdragon and Apeface accompanied "Galvatron" to Shangri-La Island for the peace talks with Spike Witwicky. Fighting broke out after the Autobots traveling with Spike learned Galvatron was a fake, and the Decepticons were planning to attack other energy storages in the universe. Daniel Faces His Biggest Crisis Ever!! Snapdragon and Apeface joined Galvatron on his trek throughout the universe for more energy and quickly became his favorite warriors. When they invaded the beehive world of Hive, Galvatron took Sixshot and the Horrorcons with him and just told the other Headmasters to keep a light on for them. Fight to the Death on Planet Hive!! They were also active on the Twin Star planets, searching in vain for more energy on Sperity when the Autobot Headmasters arrived. Battle for Defense of the False Planet On Daros, Apeface and Snapdragon were Galvatron's guests as he met with the corrupt governor, and they later joined Sixshot in a fight with the Headmasters. They were doing okay until Chromedome and friends pulled out a 50-foot gun. It...didn't go well after that. Find MegaZarak's Weak Spot!! On the Pirate Planet, the Horrorcons helped the Decepticon Clones recover the skull key from Fastlane and Cloudraker. Snapdragon was also involved in Galvatron's efforts to use the key and raid the pirates' pyramid. Mystery of the Space Pirate Ship As the Decepticons returned to Earth, Snapdragon and Apeface began working for Sixshot on Earth. They were assembled alongside the Terrorcons and Combaticons to attack an Autobot energy facility in Miami. The duo fought the Monsterbot named Doublecross, although he was almost too busy arguing with himself to notice. They later traveled to Autobot City and picked a fight with Raiden, preventing him from entering the battle between Sixshot and Ultra Magnus that led to the Autobot City Commander's death. Ultra Magnus Dies!! Sixshot continued to employ Snapdragon and Apeface's services on Earth, as the Decepticons unleashed five simultaneous attacks on Autobot outposts on the planet. The Emperor of Destruction Vanishes on an Iceberg As Scorponok abandoned Earth in favor of conquering Master, Snapdragon was one of his many troops seen attacking the planet's fortifications. After the Autobots arrived on Master, Apeface and Snapdragon were triple-teamed by the new Targetmasters. Perhaps not considering the Horrorcons worthy of exerting their new powers, Pointblank and the Targetmasters spent the whole battle unarmed and in vehicle mode, and still royally smacked the chips out of the two Decepticons. Miraculous Warriors, Targetmasters (Part 2) When the Decepticons kidnapped Wheelie, the Horrorcons stood guard outside the MegaZarak base. In vehicle mode, Chromedome and Danny zoomed right past them and up the ramp into the headquarters. Considering the rescue mission continued unmolested from then on, apparently Snapdragon and Apeface decided it was just a sudden wind that knocked them on their skidplates. The Master Sword Is in Danger!! Later, while Scorponok was finishing the final touches on his Zarak Shield, Snapdragon and Apeface went with Sixshot on a diversionary patrol to keep the Autobots busy. The Zarak Shield Turns the Tide They also battled the Autobots on the asteroid Pallas while MegaZarak was undergoing repairs. Duel on the Asteroid Snapdragon and Apeface returned to Earth with Scorponok for his final scheme to annihilate the planet using Death Towers made of crysmagnetal. As the Decepticons finished preparations for their fourth tower in Egypt, the Battleship Maximus arrived to put in an appearance. Weirdwolf's trio was the first to intercept the battleship and engage the enemy, but Apeface and Snapdragon were quick to follow. Unfortunately, Weirdwolf was leading his men in a rather bizarre and unstable totem pole maneuver, which only got worse after the Horrorcons hopped on top of Mindwipe. At that point, Fortress simply hit the gas, causing the "tower of power" to topple over the side. Snapdragon was also present at the final battle between the Autobots and Decepticons at the North Pole. The Final Showdown on Earth (Part 2) The Headmasters mangaApeface and Snapdragon searched for a weapon of unbelievable power known as the Charge Arrow. Equipped to fire only a single shot, the Charge Arrow was still highly coveted due to its ability to harness countless amounts of energy. They located it at the Tower of Omega on a distant planet, but were opposed by Chromedome and Daniel Witwicky. Chromedome tried to wield the Charge Arrow against the Horrorcons, but to their delight he failed to make it work properly. Filled with a sense of triumph, Apeface and Snapdragon mercilessly beat the Autobot Headmaster before advancing on Daniel. Seeing his friend in trouble, Chromedome summoned the burning justice necessary to wield the Charge Arrow, and used it to blast Apeface between the eyes. The backwash of energy consumed the two Horrorcons, and they fell to a burning crash off the side of the tower. The Headmasters #5 Super-God Masterforce mangaSnapdragon appeared among the united Decepticon forces under Devil Z, and threatened the Autobot Masterforce with an attack on Earth. The Battle Begins! The United Earth-Space Troops Marvel The Transformers comicsEvents from the UK-only comic stories are in italics. Snapdragon was a Triple Changer working for Scorponok on Cybertron. He participated in a raid on an Autobot city, leading to its incineration and the capture of several of its inhabitants. As the Decepticons marched their captives towards their doom in the smelting pools however, they were ambushed by a squadron led by Fortress Maximus and forced to retreat. Ring of Hate! Shortly after, the Decepticons were suitably perturbed when their chief opponents suddenly vanished off the face of the planet. They eventually found their enemies when Lord Zarak of Nebulos sent a subspace message to Cybertron, asking for help in ridding his world of the Autobots. Snapdragon and the others arrived on Nebulos, ready to destroy their enemies and plunder the planet for resources, taking Zarak and his band of followers prisoner in the process. In battle, Fortress Maximus and his fellow warriors drove off Scorponok's crew with their new Headmaster powers. Broken Glass! The Decepticons went on to rampage on Nebulos, but a group containing the Terrorcons and the Horrorcons were sent fleeing by the Autobot Headmasters and the Technobots. Realizing the Headmasters' superiority in combat, Scorponok arranged a deal with Zarak to binary bond his warriors with the captive Nebulans. Snapdragon was binary bonded to Zarak's personal bodyguard, Krunk. The Autobots and Decepticons again battled, with the Autobot Headmasters losing the rematch. Love and Steel! When the Autobot Headmasters attempted to rescue the Autobot Targetmasters from the Decepticons, their evil counterparts were sent out after them to feign a defeat, and lure them into an ambush helmed by Scorponok. During the initial fight, Apeface and Snapdragon chased Highbrow through the air, until the latter was shot down by Chromedome. Snapdragon then assumed his beast mode to chomp down on Chromedome, only to get blasted by Highbrow and crumpling to the ground. The rest of the Decepticons were shortly thereafter "defeated," allowing Scorponok to eventually corner the Autobots within the Fortress of Despair. Worlds Apart!Snapdragon later watched Scorponok in a faux duel against Fortress Maximus; a diversion set-up so that the Decepticons could steal a fuel convertor. Once Triggerhappy had secured the device, the duel was brought to a premature end, and Snapdragon helped Apeface fly Scorponok to safety. The Final ConflictThe events in this UK story differ in significant ways to the Headmasters mini-series.Snapdragon joined the other Decepticons in hunting down the rest of the Autobots, causing destruction across Nebulos. One conflict took him to the Mercury Gardens of Melanossus, where he helped slay several Autobots, forcing the few that survived the slaughter to flee back to their headquarters in Nebulos's swamps. Brothers in Armor!! When the Autobots left Nebulos for Earth, the Decepticons followed and battled them there, only to lose. Trial by Fire! Apeface and Snapdragon were utilized by Scorponok in a trap for Highbrow. Apeface was damaged in the process and Scorponok's head stolen. All in the Minds! Snapdragon and the others hunted down Highbrow to retrieve their leader's head. They succeeded at reuniting Scorponok's components, but they were soon faced with the danger of Galvatron and the time rift, necessitating an alliance between the Autobots and the Decepticons. However, when Ultra Magnus accidentally shot Scorponok while he was attacking Galvatron, Snapdragon and the other Decepticons turned on the Autobot. While Optimus Prime dealt with the mad Galvatron, Snapdragon and the other Decepticons carried their leader to safety. Time Wars Snapdragon doesn't care for your Nightbeat love.Later, when Scorponok's forces met up with Ratbat's Decepticons, Snapdragon accompanied his lord to the two leaders' initial meeting. When both forces fought over future ownership of the Underbase, Snapdragon found himself rolled over by Astrotrain. Cold War! He recovered in time to attack the Autobots who soon joined the battle. The Horrorcons personally swooped in to attack Fortress Maximus, but were blasted off by Blaster. Dark StarSnapdragon stood in a Decepticon audience demanding an explanation for Scorponok accepting Starscream back into the Decepticon ranks. Primal Scream Much later, Snapdragon fell under Bludgeon's command and joined his invasion of Klo. The Last Autobot? There, the Decepticons successfully ambushed the Autobots. However, Snapdragon's head was blown off soon after by Blaster, in a counter-attack led by the newly resurrected Optimus Prime. End of the Road! Ladybird Generation 1 booksSnapdragon was among the Decepticons searching for energy on Nebulos. Aware that the Autobots were up to something, Apeface's first instinct was to destroy whatever it was. Cyclonus soon determined that the Autobots had built an oil pipeline, and had Apeface and Snapdragon tear up a part of it. The Decepticons proceeded to lay in wait and attempted to ambush Kup and Highbrow when the pair repaired the pipe. The Autobots managed to get away however, when the Decepticons slipped over on the spilled oil. Autobots Strike Oil Swamp of the ScorpionThe following summarizes one or more multipath adventures. Details vary depending on the paths taken in-story. See the book's page for information on alternate paths. Snapdragon and his Nebulan ally Krunk were under the command of Lord Zarak while the later attempted to steal Nebulos's oil. Opposing him was a young Nebulan and the Autobot Highbrow. The outcome of the battles that ensued depended on your decisions! Swamp of the Scorpion IDW Generation 1 continuityWhile occupying Sensensica with Snap Trap and Hun-Grrr, Snapdragon was heavily beaten by the Autobot forces of the Lost Light. Before & After Imprisoned aboard their ship, Under Cold Blue Stars he was returned to Cybertron where he and the other prisoners broke out and attempted to rescue Megatron from his trial. Megatron rejected their help, however, and the Decepticons were swiftly beaten down and recaptured, Snapdragon himself being beaten by Prowl. Predestination: A Beginner's Guide Commercial appearancesSnapdragon and Apeface were created by Galvatron deep in the canyons of Nebulon. Set loose, the Horrorcons proceeded to try out all three of their modes before wrecking up some nearby rock formations. Headmaster Horrorcons commercial Games The Transformers (PS2) “ Headmaster Horrorcon, Snapdragon! Transformed into a dragon, nothing can withstand his teeth and claws. ” —The Narrator, The TransformersVoice actor: Alex Easley (English) Autobot storyWhile Optimus Prime's squad team explored the geothermal power plant, Snapdragon ambushed them. He dropped from the ceiling in his dragon mode and transformed to robot mode, giving his thanks to the Autobots for coming, but told them it was time for them to go home. Determined to stop the Decepticons, the Autobots soundly defeated Snapdragon. The Headmaster decided to leave while he was still functional, Snapdragon transformed to his jet form and fled the power plant. Snapdragon later reappeared for a rematch with the Autobot squad in a valley where the Autobots had detected an SOS signal. He lost again. He tried again one last time before they reached ELTA. He still lost. Decepticon storySnapdragon was a member of a team that Megatron sent to investigate a mysterious UFO that was spotted in the area of Zel Samine. Something caused the team to lose contact with the main Decepticon forces, and they found out that they could not leave the planet, as Zel's sun, Paradius, emitted electromagnetic rays that was harmful to them. Unable to contact Megatron and with no way to leave the planet safely, Snapdragon and the others scattered across Zel.When the Decepticon forces went to Zel in order to investigate, they found Snapdragon at the Jaad wind power plant in his dragon mode. When he spotted them, he expressed relief at having found his friends, and transformed to robot mode. The Headmaster Decepticon complained about how it took so long for him to find his fellow Decepticons, explaining that fighting Autobots on his own was hard. Megatron was pleased to see Snapdragon, telling him that it time for him to rejoin the Decepticon forces. Snapdragon promised that he would and saluted his leader. The Transformers Transformers LegendsSnapdragon and Skullcruncher grew tired of waiting around Decepticon headquarters, and decided to set up a false distress signal to lure Autobots into a trap. Hot Spot, Blades, Groove, and Streetwise responded to the false alarm and, despite the duo's schemes, rebuffed the Decepticons' assault. False Alarm Toys Generation 1 Snapdragon with Krunk (1987)Japanese ID number: D-100Snapdragon transforms into a jet heavily based on the SR-71 Blackbird spy plane, and also a 'reptile mode', which resembles a generic large theropod dinosaur. His jet mode has two detachable fins, while his reptile mode can have his two guns mounted on its back. His Headmaster partner, Krunk, is both his robot mode head and his reptile mode head (which is simply the robot mode head flipped on its back).More information on Snapdragon at TFU.infoInstruction booklet for Snapdragon at Botchthecrab.com NotesOne of the many confusing glitches in The Rebirth is the fact that, while Krunk and Spasma were clearly designed to transform into both the robot and animal heads of their partners, the Horrorcons retained their beast mode heads even when their Nebulan partners were separated from them.According to Atlus's Transformers video game, Snapdragon's reptilian alternate mode is, in fact, a dragon.In the Japanese The Headmasters series, Krunk does not exist as a separate entity from Snapdragon; like all Headmasters, the large robot is just a lifeless transtector body controlled entirely by the head unit. While the toy of Snapdragon's head unit was referred to as "Krunk" when separated from the larger robot body, the head unit was not referred to by this, or any, separate name in the cartoon.The Latin American Spanish translation of the Headmasters cartoon presents some problems with Snapdragon's name. On Snapdragon's first appearance, Galvatron himself calls him "Zela". (However, it's a bit hard to understand Galvatron; if you don't listen carefully, it sounds like he says "Zedda", which has caused further confusion.) Then Snapdragon presents himself as "Ozela", after which both the narrator and Chromedome call him "Zela". Later, Hardhead calls him "Zedda", and finally, Galvatron calls him "Zela" again. This would seem to make "Zela" his official name, since it's used the most frequently. This is neither the first nor the last dubbing mistake in the series.In the same Spanish dub, he calls himself "el dragón indestructible" (the indestructible dragon).
