Sharkticon is a fictional character from the Transformers series.
The name Sharkticon was given to an individual Decepticon in the Transformers: Energon toyline in 2004. He turned into a shark-shaped submarine with a color scheme similar to the Robots in Disguise Predacon, Sky-Byte.
Sharkticon has an appetite for destruction along with a repulsive stench. Recruited by Scorponok for space reconnaissance, this evil Decepticon proved very quickly that his true skills were best displayed during space battle and underwater combat. His powerful jaws are his greatest weapons. His cruel way of destroying an enemy has been known to sicken his Decepticon allies, including Megatron, on many occasions. Even his teammate, Shockwave, is repulsed by Sharkticon's personality and stink. In vehicle mode, he can out-maneuver some of Optimus Prime's most skilled Autobots. In robot mode, he takes down the enemy with merciless precision and pure enjoyment
Sharkticon appeared in the Dreamwave Productions Transformers: Energon comics. He was one of the Terrorcons under Mirage's command who had been sent to retrieve Kicker. While Mirage and Slugslinger were sent to distract Kicker's protectors - the Omnicons - Sharkticon was to kidnap the human. However, Kicker was able to charge up the defeated Omnicons with raw Energon and the Terrorcons were forced to flee.
He also appeared in the Dreamwave Summer Special. In the future, Megatron had retaken command of the Decepticons, and sent Snow Cat, Slugslinger and Sharkticon each on missions to steal copies of the plans for Omega Supreme from the Autobot's Ocean City. Each of the three attempted to break in - but each were defeated. Sharkticon was nearly scrapped by the city's underwater defenses and was then defeated by Kicker and the Energon Saber Mini-Cons. The three each made up stories as to their failure and Megatron appointed Slugslinger as his lieutenant as his lie was the most impressive.
He also appeared in Transformers: Energon Promotional Comic #3 where he was taken out by Omega Supreme.
