This article is about the Decepticon in the first film, for the almost-identical Decepticon in the sequel, see Buffalo mine-protected vehicle Decepticon. For the Mastiff in the sequel, see Bonecrusher (ROTF). For other meanings of the name, see Bonecrusher (disambiguation).
Bonecrusher is a Decepticon from the live-action movie continuity family.
He was a sk8ter boi, she said see ya later boy. Conveniently enough, Bonecrusher really hates that song

Bonecrusher is a Transformer that can be described with one word: hate. While other Decepticons get by on greed, ambition, or just their fondness for dispensing chaos, Bonecrusher is fueled by sheer, unrelenting hate. He hates everyone and everything, be they Autobot, Decepticon, or anything in-between—he even hates himself, revolted by his misshapen, hunchbacked robot mode, which he considers a reflection of all the ugliness and malice inside himself. This full force of this vicious cycle of hatred finds release in explosive frenzied bursts of psychotic brutality, as Bonecrusher takes out the full force of his bitterness and self-loathing on anyone who looks at him sideways. He also hates Megatron, but would hate being terminated (literally) by the Decepticon leader more, so, he sticks around.

On Cybertron, Bonecrusher was actually quite a skilled tactician—dedicated to the art of war, a fast thinker who could plough into battle while others were still mapping out strategy, and, most importantly in Megatron's eyes, a masterfully dirty fighter. However, Bonecrusher's skills left him consigned to a supervisory position and kept him off the battlefield, which, of course, he hated. Naturally, this only helped to increase his already epic levels of frustration and misery at his lot in life, until he became what he is today. So intensely pent-up that he is willing to take on an opponent of any size (the bigger the better!), Bonecrusher wouldn't hesitate to confront Optimus Prime head on (or off), if he could.

Let it die. And you with it.
