The Decepticons are one of the two major factions across the various incarnations of the Transformers toy and media franchise, in opposition to the Autobots. In most cases the Decepticons serve as the series' antagonists under the leadership of Megatron or other tyrannical commanders.
Robots in Disguise
In Robots in Disguise, the Decepticons are a new faction born during the course of the series, as previously Cybertron had been home to-and contested by-the Autobots and Predacons. After finding a crashed ship with six Autobot Protoforms in Stasis pods aboard, Megatron infuses them with his Spark energy to sway them to the Predacon cause. He and his minions then scan several vehicles at a military base to serve as their alternate modes, resulting in the birth of Scourge and the Commandos.
