Team Chaar is an elite squad of Decepticons stationed on the planet Chaar.
Its members includes
- Strika, the leader
- Blackout, the muscle
- Cyclonus, the space warrior
- Oil Slick, the chemical warfare expert
- Spittor, the disgusting thing
- Blot, a different disgusting thing
- Mindwipe, the hypnotist and a Decepticon council member
- Sky-Byte, the warrior-poet
- Scalpel, Oil Slick's leetle friend
Team Chaar battled Rodimus Prime's crew, handily beating them and taking control of space bridge 687-030. Strika contacted Shockwave, the Decepticons' secret agent on Cybertron, with news of their success, but Shockwave commanded the team stay put until they received word from Megatron to invade. This proved to be a bad move, as Ultra Magnus subsequently had the entire space bridge nexus shut down to prevent the Decepticons from using them.
The team remained at the captured bridge, awaiting the word to proceed. When the Elite Guard flagship finally arrived in response to Rodimus's SOS, Strika relished the chance to battle them... but was ordered to retreat by Megatron. Reluctantly, the five of the Decepticon team retreated.
