Dawn of Future's PastEdit
As Megatron and his rogue band of Predacons escaped Cybertron in their stolen ship, the Darksyde, Tarantulas was in charge of scanning the disk for a desired set of coordinates. While Megatron was not watching, he was in secret communication with a member of the Tripredacus Council. (The reflections in his helmet show the silhouette of General Cicadacon.)
Using the decoded coordinates, the Darksyde opened a transwarp portal, which it and the Axlalon passed through
His robot form is a humanoid robot. His body matched his voice: slick and monstrous. His head was purple with spider eyes on his forehead, his mouth was made up of six mandibles, and his eye was a yellow visor. His upper torso was purple and muscular and his arms had his eight spider legs connected to them while his hands and lower part of his arms where two massive claws striped yellow and purple. The spider head had become the robot's pelvic structure. His legs looked a little skinny but strong.
His beast form is a giant tarantula and later becomes a mechanical Transmetal tarantula.
His human form looked to be around forty-eight years of age, with short silver hair combed back, a physique showing off a mad scientist look. He was of a British appearance due to his skin with yellow steely eyes looking down.
His Vehicle mode is a spider cycle flipping down a wheel from his abdomen and a saw blade from under his beast head.
In addition to being an utterly psychotic, sadistic sociopath, Tarantulas has a record for treachery rivaled by few other Transformers.
