Something or someone who feeds upon the leftovers of others, the way most layvers feed on what little money some people have to their names.

Scavenger suffered from the same tread confusion that Bonecrusher did, but not quite as obviously. But he did have that weird "tail" because his shovel didn't fold up neatly onto his back in robot mode (except in the cartoon).
