The combined form of the Decepticon Predacons. In Transformers Prime he is Shockwave's creation to hunt the remaining Autobots.
Predaking is considered the perfect Decepticon combiner due to the successful fusion of each of his component elements' physical abilities and personalities. Most others of his kind are rendered stupid, suggestible, or borderline insane by the merging of minds, but the five Predacons are united by their shared love of the hunt, and produce a single complete persona.
Predaking made his debut in season 3 of The Transformers during the short-lived Decepticon-Quintesson alliance in the year 2005. The Predacons was dispatched to to prevent Blurr, Wheelie, Marissa Faireborn and Sky Lynx from escaping Jupiter's moon of Io with Metroplex's transformation cog. After each one of them failed individually to stop they combined to form Predaking but again were defeated by Sky Lynx.
Predaking is set to appear in season 3 of Transformers Prime. In this series he was created from ancient remains found by Shockwave and breed in a test tube as the Decepticon's ultimate weapon to help track down the remaining Autobots hiding across the planet. In the series he will not be a combiner but a massive Predacon soldier whose alternate form is a dragon.
