Scarem tech specs say he resulted from Megatron's cloning experiments. His only appearance in fiction, however, contradicts this, saying he was a Maximal turned into a Predacon by Magamtron. He is aggressive and dangerous.[1]

Animated series[]

Scarem's stasis pod was presumably among those who were launched into orbit around prehistoric Earth in the Beast Wars series pilot.

IDW Publishing[]

Scarem finally made his first official appearance in the 2006 IDW Beast Wars comic, where it was revealed he was a Maximal protoform from the Axalon who was infected with a Predacon shell program by Magmatron.

Scarem had a biography printed in the Beast Wars Sourcebook by IDW Publishing.[2]
