The unmapped, largely unexplored levels immediately below Cybertron's disused sewer system are known as Underworld, home to all sorts of horrible things.
Marvel UK Generation 1 comics
Demons pass through the Underworld layer before reaching the surface of Cybertron.
The Underworld was a place of great mystery and danger, dark things lived there and hunted the unwary. In the final days before the war, Crystal City had to deal with dangerous incursions into their underlevels from creatures of the Underworld.
In the old days, after being birthed from the Vector Sigma, the newly sparked Cybertronian was expected to make a death-defying run through Underworld as a test of courage and worthiness. As this custom died away, Cybertronians turned to another sport full of thrills and spilled oil: gladiatorial combat. This was the first place many disenchanted Cybertronians caught their first glimpse of a fellow named Megatron.
As Cybertron fell into chaos during the civil war, more and more Underworlders began to brave the surface and terrorize the Autobots. Megatron and Shockwave made a deal with them, and the Underworlders allowed the guards of Kaon Prison to place its prisoners underground.
In October of 2012, the Uber-Seeker was found by Decepticons Bombshell and Windshear. Windshear challenged the Uber-Seeker for leadership of the Dweller cult, and demonstrated his ability by leading a successful attack against the Centurion droids. However, soon after the battle, Bombshell and Windshear were tracked down by Blaster and Scourge, who subdued Bombshell and Windshear and brought them back for examination towards a possible cure for the Dweller nano-virus. At Windshear's command, the Uber-Seeker took his shambling horde of undead and retreated to the Underworld.
In 2017, Counterpunch, Dust Devil, Seaspray, and Shockwave travelled down to the Cybertron Underworld to seek out the knowledge of Vector Sigma. In spite of clever diversionary efforts by Counterpunch, the Decepticons were almost overwhelmed by Centurion Droids... until they were suddenly called off by Dust Devil.
