Transformers: Generation 1

In the Dreamwave comics he is depicted as being a former full-sized Decepticon who was converted into a Micromaster.

Fictional biography

Likes to watch things explode. Especially enjoys firing his helicopter's sonic cannon at anything associated with the Autobots. Transforms the copter into a battle base to use its powerful molecular disruptor gun to alter the Autobot's circuitry. Other Decepticons suspect all the explosions have rattled his brain circuits once to often!

Dreamwave Productions

Skyhopper had a biography printed in issue #5 of the Dreamwave Productions Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye series.

Skyhopper appears in the Dreamwave Productions Micromasters limited series. In this series Skyhopper is revealed to be a formerly larger Decepticon who was converted into a Micromaster. He and his commander Skystalker left Cybertron and became rivals to the Autobot Micromasters Countdown and Groundshaker. In issue #2 of this series Skystalker and Skyhopper return to Cybertron after years in space conquering planets. After meeting with Shockwave the pair of Micromasters disabled him and set up the larger Autobot and Decepticon forces into a fight that left both sides drained of energy.
