Anthony Craig, an American teenager of African decent, was always a fervent supporter of the Decepticons and a constant thorn in the side of meek William A. Rendfeld, supporter of the Autobots. In 1998, both he and Rendfeld were abducted by alien grays, experimented on, and planted directly into the fictional world of the Transformers, circa the Beast Wars. Anthony emerged from his stasis pod as a cyborged crocodile/crab Fuzor with the head of a twelve-year-old boy, and dubbed himself Terrorclaw. As the biggest and the strongest of the Predacons, he commanded instant respect.
Unfortunately, Rendfeld had also been given a powerful Transformer form, and was reborn as the mighty Echowarrior. Terrorclaw was never a match for either Echowarrior's fighting prowess or his intimate knowledge of Transformers lore.
He talks "the black way."
