SCORPONOK is barely what the other TRANSFORMERS would even call alive. His core programming is only a tiny bit more complex that pure instinct. In most things, he acts almost entirely as an animal. He never speaks, and lives only to hunt and destroy. Unlike most of his fellow robots, he prefers his alternate mode with it's energized stinger and drill-claws to his robot mode. Capable of burrowing through slid earth at nearly eighty miles per hour, he can be a terrifying opponent as he springs suddenly upon his target in a shower of dirt from the ground.

Scorponok Additional Info
According to Roberto Orci, Scorponok was a "Conscious nod to Beast Wars. We wanted to find some organic way to do something more than just vehicles, and when we hit upon the notion of soldiers trapped behind enemy lines being hunted by a Decepticon, Skorpy seemed to fit the bill."
Additional Comic Information
In the Titan UK story, Scorpion Sting, a US Special Forces team and Ironhide head out into the deserts of Qatar to hunt for Scorponok. But Scorponok reveals his true power when he latches onto Ironhide and seizes control of Ironhide's body (but not his mind - Scorponok only appears to be able to override a Transformers' equivalent of a nervous system not control their minds). However, the weakness of this is that Scorponok's control is via a thin cable attached to the back of the robot's neck, so when a sniper served the cable, Ironhide regained control, pulled Scorponok off his back, and smashed him into pieces.
