They amaze me sometimes too. It's a happy accident that I've managed to keep everything cohesive.

Of course, I could just be too modest for my own good.

Re: Transformers: Armada (Revisited)


And more profiles for everyone.

Animatros Autobots & Decepticons

Subject: Snarl
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Animatros Tracker
Alternative Mode: Cybernetic Wolf

Profile: A strong, silent loner, Snarl is among the few Autobots that Scourge, governor of Animatros, trusts. Generally peaceful and thoughtful, he is a terror when roused into combat, acting with patience and careful planning. Uncomfortable in artificial structures and nervous in new situations, Snarl is still a loyal and proud Autobot warrior.

Attributes, Abilities, and Equipment: Snarl is incredibly silent when moving, and possesses limited active camouflage technology. His primary weapon is a heavy sniper cannon/Energon blade modified for one-handed use and easy conversion. Can cover 100 meters in 30 seconds in a sprint. Can activate a diamond claw/bite with the use of his Cyber Key.

Weaknesses: Subject possesses light armor, thus leading him to dangerous situations in cases where he operates alone.

Subject: Backstop
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Animatros Sage
Alternative Mode: Cybernetic Rhinoceros

Profile: The former colonial governor of Animatros, Backstop is a calm, collected old soldier, weathered by time and experience to believe in the value of patience and clear-thinking. He trained many young warriors in his time, teaching them the value of self-defense and analyzing the situation before them. Even now in his retirement, his greatest student, Scourge, often comes to him for advice and wisdom whenever he finds himself wrestling with a problem. Backstop is happy to take a backseat and guide his students, but is more than willing to stand up and fight when needed.

Attributes, Abilities, and Equipment: Subject is highly intelligent, and possesses great strength and wisdom. He is a master of Metallikato, and honed the art with Landmine on Cybertron. He is also intensely curious about the world around him, and has taken to exploring many caves and formations across Animatros. Subject is heavily armored; can deflect small arms fire easily in either mode. Through the use of a Cyber Key, he can activate a ramming diamond horn capable of tearing through rock with ease.

Weaknesses: Subject lacks speed, and shows reluctance towards fighting even when it’s necessary.

Subject: Scourge
Affiliation: Decepticon
Position: Animatros Governor
Alternative Mode: Cybernetic Earth Dragon

Profile: A proud warrior, Scourge is a popular leader among the Decepticons. He possesses great strength and charisma, and inspires confidence in his subordinates. He is guided by ideals of honor and wisdom, passed onto him by his master and advisor, Backstop; while his rule is harsh, it is fair. Few Autobots or Decepticons hate him, but many respect and fear him.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is very strong, and highly intelligent. A capable military tactician. Can deploy twin flamethrowers similar to dragons’ heads in both beast and robot modes with the aid of a Cyber Key. Wields a massive ax that can crush stone, and runs very quickly in both modes.

Weaknesses: Scourge’s pride is his weakness, but can be overcome if given proper motivation.

Subject: Wreckloose
Affiliation: Decepticon
Position: Animatros Tracker
Alternative Mode: Armored Komodo Dragon

Profile: One of the most unusual Transformers in Scourge’s inner circle, Wreckloose is a silent and cunning warrior who follows an unusual sense of honor. He enjoys fighting his opponents, but prefers to go toe-to-toe with his opponents with his armored shield, and usually after taking down any advantages they may have beforehand, usually setting up elaborate traps in the process. Scourge allows him free reign, but keeps an optic on him at all times.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Wreckloose is a master of stealth, and can easily blend in to his surroundings. His Cyber Key fully deploys the armor on his shield, protecting his body against attack and allowing for limited flight in beast mode. He is incredibly cunning, and is quite skilled at setting up ambushes.

Weaknesses: Subject has low armor beside his shield, and carries no projectile weapons. Also, he overestimates his cunning at times, thus leading to encounters where his opponents have overwhelmed him.

Re: Transformers: Armada (Revisited)


Decepticons: Shockblast

Subject: Shockblast
Affiliation: Decepticon
Position: Communications Officer/Tactician
Alternative Mode: Satellite/Heavy Tank

Profile: Logical, cunning, and arrogant, Shockblast is among the finest tactical minds among Megatron’s forces. It’s mostly as a result of his strategic planning that Megatron’s forces have continued to operate throughout the millennia and evade capture. Confident in his abilities, Shockblast is beginning to grow weary of the ongoing conflict against his fellow Cybertronians, and is considering his options...

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is highly intelligent, possessing high intelligence and advanced strategic skills. Is equipped with a powerful high-yield plasma cannon capable of hitting targets from twenty miles away. Equipped with advanced communications technology and more than capable of jamming Autobot transmissions.

Weaknesses: Subject is very arrogant, and makes no secret of his idea of self-worth.

Subject: Sixshot
Affiliation: Decepticon
Position: Weapons Technician/Engineer
Alternative Mode: Satellite/Heavy Tank

Profile: Sixshot isn’t a tough nut to crack; he is dedicated first and foremost to his brother, Shockblast, and is passionate about his work in weapons development. The only reason he’s with Megatron’s faction is because of his devotion to Shockblast. His skill in designing and developing weapons is an active aid to the rogue Decepticons, but should Shockblast be given reason to leave Megatron’s service, Sixshot will surely follow.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is highly intelligent, possessing incredible skills in engineering and weapons design. Is equipped with a powerful high-yield plasma cannon, the prototype for the one used by Shockblast, and has heavy armor allowing him to ram through barriers in his tank mode.

Weaknesses: Subject’s loyalty to Shockblast has led him to more trouble than anything, while his prototypical weapon can blow out, damaging his systems.

Subject: Bludgeon
Affiliation: Decepticon
Position: Field Commander
Alternative Mode: Earth-based Combat Tank

Profile: Bludgeon is a warrior first and foremost; a capable leader and skilled fighter, he is one of the few masters of Metallikato. Adheres to a strict code of honor; he rarely fights with anything other than his hands or melee weapons. He has an admiration for the samurai of Earth. Bludgeon is cunning, swift, and can hide himself with ease despite his massive form. Few who cross his path survive to tell about it.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Is a master of Metallikato, and skilled in hand to hand combat. Can temporarily cloak himself. Armed with a shoulder-mounted fusion gun and small handheld blaster. Armor is nearly indestructible.

Weaknesses: Bludgeon has few weaknesses.

Subject: Rapid Run
Affiliation: Decepticon
Position: Infiltration/Espionage
Alternative Mode: Earth-based Motorcycle
Mini-Con Partner: Nightcruz

Profile: Rapid Run is a Transformer on borrowed time; not long after joining Megatron’s forces, he became an informant within their ranks for the Autobots, providing tactical information and helping to keep Megatron from gaining more of a foothold. Many Decepticons have been captured by the Autobots on Rapid Run’s information, though he’s never been properly implicated for these events. Despite his rate of success, Rapid Run fears that his exposure is inevitable, and that he will be destroyed by many of the Decepticons whose capture he contributed to.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is of fair intelligence and high speed. Possesses stealth technology and heightened sensors, allowing him to pick up on small sounds and details.

Weaknesses: Subject is slightly paranoid, a fact which isn’t helped by his activities and his heightened sensors.

Subject: Oil Slick
Affiliation: Decepticon
Position: Diversionary Tactician
Alternative Mode: Earth-based Sedan

Profile: A talented con artist and smooth talker, Oil Slick has often been both a distraction and a powerful bit of propaganda for Megatron’s forces. Knowing full well that a good deal can go bad, Oil Slick has watched his actions carefully waiting for the chance to get out from under Megatron’s thumb and feel safe again. While Megatron’s wrath for betrayal would be great, he knows that if he can find another option, he’s got a better chance of surviving for another cycle.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is charismatic, intelligent, and quite clever. His skills as a conman have allowed him to survive for a long length of time, as well as gain a few boosts to his weapons and abilities. Is armed with a small energy pistol with bayonet, in case his fast talking and high speed can’t allow him to escape a deal gone bad.

Weaknesses: May sometimes get over his head in an agreement.

Subject: Shadow Stalker
Affiliation: Decepticon (former nonaligned)
Position: Reconnaissance Operative
Alternative Mode: Earth-based Sports Car

Profile: A Transformer with little to ground her to the world, Shadow Stalker was forced to watch as her sibling Silhouette was slain in combat. Since then, she’s become convinced that to protect herself, she needs either to have power, or to be connected to powerful individuals. Her siding with Megatron was done in order to protect herself and Cybertron; now she regrets it, as her decision has separated her from her Autobot sister Roulette and made her an outcast.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is very fast and possesses limited stealth technology, making her ideal for reconnaissance operations. Is equipped with a high-accuracy plasma rifle capable of hitting targets from a distance of up to two miles.

Weaknesses: Her lack of self-confidence and sense of self makes her very easily swayed to one side or another.

Re: Transformers: Armada (Revisited)


Subject: Barricade
Affiliation: Decepticon
Position: Combaticon Commander/ Tactician
Alternative Mode: Earth-based Mobile Missile Battery

Profile: A master strategist and military planner, Barricade trains his unit, the Combaticons, like a drill sergeant. Adamant that his orders and policies be followed to the letter, Barricade has been known to blast Decepticons who fail to follow his strategies, and refuses to believe that he is at fault for their failure. Despite this, he knows a losing battle when he sees one, and genuinely desires a chance to use his strategies for the good of his homeworld.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is highly intelligent and physically strong, with extensive strategic training and heavy armor. Subject is capable of firing eight rockets in a 270 degree arc with explosive force equivalent to 3000 tons of TNT with a range of 6000 miles. Forms the torso of combiner Bruticus Maximus.

Weaknesses: Subject can become angry or sullen when a plan fails, and often takes out his frustration on the members of his unit, lowering morale.

Subject: Kickback
Affiliation: Decepticon
Position: Ground Assault
Alternative Mode: Earth-based Tank

Profile: Harsh, aggressive and temperamental, Kickback is the wrong Decepticon to get into a fight with, no matter whose side you’re on. What makes this worse is that he’s a skilled and effective warrior, with powerful weapons to match, meaning that whoever gets on his bad side faces a great deal of time in the repair bay. Despite his hair-trigger temper, however, he is quite loyal to the few he considers friends, and will proudly watch out for them in battle.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is very strong and well-armored. Equipped with multiple gun batteries which can be used in both robot and vehicle mode. Forms a limb for Bruticus Maximus.

Weaknesses: Subject’s weapons can occasionally cause him to be pushed back with recoil.

Subject: Blight
Affiliation: Decepticon
Position: Warrior
Alternative Mode: Earth-based Tank

Profile: Dead End is a chronic pessimist and negative thinker; he knows that he’s going to die, he just doesn’t know when. Despite this grim outlook, however, he does his best to keep himself maintained and fight his hardest, reasoning that if he’s going to go offline, he may as well leave an attractive corpse and as many enemies behind him as he can. While he finds the conflict pointless, and would be more than happy to stay out of it, he knows full well that it’s impossible...and that only makes him feel worse.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject has above-average strength and intelligence, and is an effective warrior when properly motivated. Possesses advanced sensors, allowing him to map terrain and find his opponents. Features compressed air cannons which can be used in both modes. Forms a limb for Bruticus Maximus.

Weaknesses: Subject is extremely difficult to motivate into fighting, often needing something to actually shoot at him before he engages in combat.

Subject: Blackout
Affiliation: Decepticon
Position: Aerospace Warrior
Alternative Mode: Earth-based Helicopter

Profile: Cold and aloof, Blackout acts as if he prefers to keep to himself. The sad truth is that his long stealth missions make him terribly lonely, and his independent front is more of a defense mechanism than anything. While Barricade encourages him to converse with his teammates and comrades more, Blackout prefers to keep to himself, not happy about many of the horrors he’s seen while on duty.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is fairly fast and agile, and is a skilled marksman. Armed with a multi-blaster equipped with various forms of laser-based ordinance. Forms a limb for Bruticus Maximus.

Weaknesses: Subject has no outstanding weaknesses.

Subject: Stormcloud
Affiliation: Decepticon
Position: Scout
Alternative Mode: Earth-based Helicopter

Profile: Nervous and high-strung, Stormcloud is always worried that people are watching him and judging him, picking out his faults and recording them for later. His lack of self-confidence is all to clear to Barricade, who attempts to encourage his comrade and remind him of his worth. Despite this, Stormcloud is always convinced of his failings and remains violently unpredictable in combat.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject has above-average strength and intelligence, and is fairly fast. Can generate intense vibrations in vehicle mode which can disable or destroy most low-tech devices within 500 feet. Armed with a multi-barreled concussion rifle in robot mode. Forms a limb for Bruticus Maximus.

Weaknesses: Subject’s nervousness and paranoia can negatively impact his performance.

Re: Transformers: Armada (Revisited)


Decepticons: Predacon's Group

Subject: Predacon
Affiliation: Decepticon
Position: Mystic
Alternative Mode: Cybernetic Tyrannosaurus
Mini-Con Partners: Sideburn, Skid-Z

Profile: Mysterious and dramatic, Predacon is unpopular among the Decepticons for his radical views. Convinced of the value of those mixing organics and mechanics, he seeks to spread his views to as many as possible. Many Transformers, however, are repulsed by the notion, and the few Transformers who are in such a state don’t view themselves as unique or special. Despite this, Predacon has some followers to his cause, and views himself as doing everything possible to help Cybertron and his people.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Highly intelligent and charismatic, and very strong physically. Capable of activating VTOL thrusters and rollerblades in beast mode, and is equipped with an electrified tail whip/cannon and shoulder-mounted cannons. Possesses techno-organic attributes, allowing him greater resistance to Energon radiation.

Weaknesses: Highly resistant to damage, but his organic components take longer to heal. Subject can be blinded by his ambition, but is less interested in power than in having his voice heard.

Subject: Terrorsaur
Affiliation: Decepticon
Position: Aerial Warrior
Alternative Mode: Cybernetic Pterosaur
Mini-Con Partner: Ironhide

Profile: A simple minded hoodlum, Terrorsaur was among the first to join up with Megatron for a piece of the pie. A capable and threatening warrior, he does have a streak of cowardice and laziness about him, but also a supreme fear of the unknown. This fear has led him to gravitate towards Predacon and his beliefs, but it is ultimately to himself that he’s loyal.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject possesses high levels of strength and endurance, making him a formidable opponent. Can achieve speeds of up to 300 mph in robot mode, and 450 mph in beast mode. Possesses techno-organic attributes, allowing him greater resistance to Energon radiation.

Weaknesses: Has only average intelligence. Also, his teeth are brittle, and can break if used on a sturdy object.

Subject: Reptilion
Affiliation: Decepticon
Position: Desert Combat/Shaman
Alternative Mode: Techno-organic Lizard

Profile: A Decepticon shaman, Reptilion is obsessed with the supernatural and unexplained. He joined Predacon in the hopes that following the sage would allow him better understanding of the universe around him. While many Decepticons discount his eccentricities, some feel that he may well have a valid point, and hope that many of his predictions will never come to pass.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject has knowledge of the metaphysical and is a devout believer in the Covenant of Primus. Able to cling to most surfaces in beast mode, as well as spit various adhesives and jump long distances. Possesses techno-organic attributes, allowing him greater resistance to Energon radiation.

Weaknesses: Subject is eccentric at best, and due to organic process has limited vision.

Subject: Frostbite
Affiliation: Decepticon
Position: Arctic Assault
Alternative Mode: Techno-organic Dog

Profile: A capable hunter and a keen warrior, Frostbite was attracted to Predacon’s forces more through curiosity than anything. As the Decepticon mystic proved to be a loyal leader, Frostbite has elected to stay with him for the time being, finding advantages to his bestial abilities and owing him a debt of gratitude for showing him the way. Though fierce in battle, Frostbite is actually charming and fairly personable outside of battle.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is highly intelligent and a proficient swordsman. An expert hunter and tracker, with heightened senses thanks to his techno-organic nature. Very fast in beast mode. Personable and friendly, with a good sense of humor. Possesses techno-organic attributes, allowing him greater resistance to Energon radiation.

Weaknesses: Has limited effectiveness outside of alpine environments. Also, heightened hearing and smell can be overloaded.

Re: Transformers: Armada (Revisited)


Autobots: Crew of the Acheron

Subject: Rhinox
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Field Commander
Alternative Mode: Cybernetic Rhino
Mini-Con Partner: Armorhide

Profile: Reliable and hard-working, Rhinox is one of the most dependable Autobots around. An outspoken, take-charge warrior, he exhibits many strong leadership qualities, but is still a down-to-earth mech, making him easy to relate to. His tendency to be over-bearing, however, limits his effectiveness as a leader.

Attributes, Abilities, and Equipment: Highly intelligent and good with electronics. Possesses heightened strength in both modes, and is capable of smashing through solid granite in a charge. Can alter his hind legs in vehicle mode to allow for faster travel over rough terrain. Possesses techno-organic attributes, allowing him increased resistance to Energon radiation.

Weaknesses: Is easily disheartened when he sees the effects of his leadership tactics on his troops.

Subject: Cheetor
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Field Reconnaissance
Alternative Mode: Cybernetic Cheetah
Mini-Con Partner: Cliffjumper

Profile: Cocky, arrogant and somewhat brash, Cheetor is one Autobot most tend to avoid. While a capable warrior with an impressive record of success, Cheetor’s overconfidence in the face of danger and his ego are stumbling blocks that he’ll eventually have to overcome. Until he can start seeing the cracks in his armor, however, Cheetor will continue to see himself as the ultimate cool cat.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject has above-average strength and endurance in robot mode and is capable of reaching speeds of over 140 mph in beast mode via his boost jets. Possesses lightning-fast reflexes and limited camouflage abilities. Possesses techno-organic attributes, allowing him greater resistance to Energon radiation.

Weaknesses: His pride is his greatest shortcoming.

Subject: Airazor
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Stealth Operative
Alternative Mode: Cybernetic Falcon
Mini-Con Partner: Nightscream

Profile: A professional, Airazor is among the most decorated Autobot warriors. She prefers not to rest on her laurels, and works hard to defeat Megatron’s forces, believing that to be her most important goal. Her business-minded attitude might make her seem cold and aloof, but deep down rests a wellspring of compassion that few ever see. When not on duty, she is in fact quite gentle and good-natured. So much as she is a warrior, she is more a gentle soul.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is capable of jet-propelled flight in either robot or beast mode, capable of reaching up to 500 mph in beast mode. Possesses high visual acuity, and is capable of seeing a pin from a distance of 500 miles. Equipped with twin talons and micro-missile launchers on her arms. Possesses techno-organic attributes, protecting her from Energon radiation.

Weaknesses: Has below-average strength. Her wings are easily damaged, and her techno-organic nature leaves her further vulnerable.

Subject: Crystal Widow
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Night Operative
Alternative Mode: Techno-Organic Spider

Profile: Depressed and angry with herself, Crystal Widow considers herself an outcast among the Autobot forces. She blames herself for the capture of several Autobots during the War of Independence, as well as the creation of techno-organic Transformers. The few bright points she can find are her bonds with Airazor and Cheetor, who consider her a friend and have never blamed her for what’s happened to them. When in battle, she takes her anger out on her opponents, but this does little to eliminate her own depression.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Is fairly intelligent and extremely agile. Possesses techno-organic attributes greater than most other Transformers, thus giving her great resistance to Energon radiation. Can switch between bipedal and quadrapedal robot modes for greater flexibility in movement. Has heightened vision capabilities. In beast mode, capable of spinning high-tension webbing that is near-impossible to break.

Weaknesses: Her depression borders on self-defeating.

Subject: Longhorn
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: All-Range Reconnaissance
Alternative Mode: Techno-organic Ram

Profile: A loner by nature, Longhorn prefers to keep to himself and for others to keep out of his business. Despite this and his justified bitterness at the seeming abandonment of himself and his fellow tech-orgs by the Autobots, he remains loyal to their cause, though more out of solidarity than anything else. A capable mountaineer and warrior, Longhorn has poured his frustration and anger into the fight with the Decepticons, hoping that once they’re dealt with, he can be left alone to his own devices.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is of above-average intelligence and fair combat abilities. Highly nimble in beast mode, and capable of tearing through rock with a charge. Is equipped with combat blades mounted on his arms and a massive electro-charger in robot mode.

Weaknesses: Subject’s bitterness can cloud his judgment, and makes him unwilling to trust many other Autobots.

Profile: Magna Stampede
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Security Officer
Alternative Mode: Cybernetic Horse

Profile: Selfless and dedicated, Magna Stampede is a proud and stubborn warrior dedicated to defending Cybertron and its people. While many underestimate him due to his size, Magna Stampede’s intelligence and training make him a powerful opponent. While many Autobots are put off by his superior attitude and aloof nature, they’re grateful to have him on their side.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is highly intelligent and possesses a keen sense of strategy. Wields a vibro-scythe in robot mode capable of slicing through most Cybertronian armors and can fire cones of ultrasonic frequencies capable of disabling the auditory sensors of other Transformers. In beast mode, can puncture most materials with his horn. Possesses techno-organic attributes, allowing him greater resistance to Energon radiation.

Weaknesses: Subject has low strength, and his nature leads him to work alone more often than not.

Re: Transformers: Armada (Revisited)


Autobots: Dinobots Start
Autobots: Dinobots End

Subject: Grimlock
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Special Forces Co-Commander
Alternative Mode: (1) Utahraptor Spielbergi, (2) Mechanical Tyrannosaurus Rex

Profile: Grimlock is among the most capable special force commanders in the Autobot forces - as well as the most arrogant. Stubborn, proud and brave, Grimlock leads his personal unit, affectionately known as the ‘Dinobots’ based on their alternative forms, into battle in the toughest situations. While widely underestimated based on his style of speech and not always trusted by his fellow Autobots, Grimlock is a clever tactician and one of the most feared and respected Autobots in service.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Grimlock is one of the strongest Autobots, as well as one of the most aggressive fighters. In both versions of his alternative mode he is capable of attaining high ground speeds, and his claws can chip diamonds. In robot mode, he wields an energo-sword and a rotor-shield, and can easily adhere to most surfaces. Can combine with Swoop to form the Mega Dinobot form.

Weaknesses: Grimlock’s arrogance in battle is his greatest weakness, and he possesses an unusual speech pattern as a flaw in his audio emission module which causes him to sound less intelligent than he actually is. However, he often uses this as an advantage in battle against opponents inexperienced against him.

Subject: Skydive
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Special Forces Sage (Dinobots)
Alternative Mode: Techno-Organic Pteranodon

Profile: One of the few Autobots to have Grimlock’s respect, and one of the fewer whom the Dinobot commander will listen to, Skydive is among the eldest and most experienced warriors on Cybertron. Despite a predilection towards poor poetry, Skydive is among the most well-read of Transformers, having immersed himself in military history. As a result, it’s often Skydive whom Grimlock calls on to aid him in tactical planning. While he’s considered annoying by other Transformers due to his poetic stylings, Skydive is still valued for his tactical insight.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is highly intelligent and possesses above-average endurance. Is highly fast and agile in flight, and possesses advanced armor which can withstand the harshest attacks. Possesses techno-organic attributes, allowing him increased resistance to Energon radiation.

Weaknesses: Subject possesses no known weaknesses.

Subject: Triceratron
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Special Forces Flamethrower (Dinobots)
Alternative Mode: Triceratops

Profile: Disruptive and foul-tempered, most Autobots steer clear of the foul Triceratron even when he’s in a good mood. He rejects any orders that don’t come from Grimlock, and never follows any advice. He’s always angry at something; only tearing a Decepticon apart can lift his spirits. And when he can’t do that, he generally tears apart anything he can find. Many Autobots wonder why he serves their cause; Triceratron may not know himself.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject possesses incredible strength and can punch through the densest of materials. Primary weapons include a flamethrower and napalm-based weaponry capable of temperatures exceeding 3000 degrees.

Weaknesses: Subject is lacking in intelligence and speed, and isn’t trusted by many of his comrades.

Subject: Snarl
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Special Forces Desert Combat (Dinobots)
Alternative Mode: Stegosaurus

Profile: Quiet and unhappy, Snarl prefers to keep to himself and not bother with strategy and planning. He’s content to let others point him at the target and let him work; that way, he gets the job done, and everybody’s happy except for him. He hates his alternate mode, and the fact that he’s stuck with it for the foreseeable future. However much he hates it, he isn’t afraid to note that it’s given him a decided edge against the Decepticons.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is fairly strong, and can increase his strength with the aid of solar radiation. This same solar radiation can be used to fire focused blasts of energy at his opponents in either mode from his tail. Subject has dense armor, and is protected against most projectiles.

Weaknesses: Subject is lacking in speed. His energy reserves can be drained fairly quickly, and between that and his narrow-mindedness in battle, he can be drawn into hazardous situations.

Profile: Swoop
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Special Forces Bombardier (Dinobots)
Alternative Mode: (1) Pteranodon, (2) Mechanical Pteranodon

Profile: Sociable and well-liked, Swoop often serves as Grimlock’s direct second in combat and in some ways a liaison to the other Autobots. While some of the other Autobots are intimidated by his fearsome beast mode, all of them cherish his kindness and good-natured personality. Not only Autobots are made uneasy by his form, however, and Swoop has often put his skills to good use against the Decepticons, giving his team a psychological edge in battle.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is fairly intelligent, possesses above average strength, and is an excellent flyer and pilot. Highly fuel efficient, and armed with a light machinegun and hidden rocket launchers in robot mode. Capable of combining with Grimlock into a Mega Dinobot form.

Weaknesses: Subject’s wings are thin and weakly armored, making them vulnerable to artillery fire.

Profile: Sludge
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Special Forces Demolitions (Dinobots)
Alternative Mode: Spinosaurus

Profile: Sludge isn’t the smartest of Transformers, but he’s among the toughest and bravest. While gentle by nature, when properly encouraged he is an engine of destruction, tearing through anything and everything in his path...but often trapping himself in the rubble in the process. While the other Dinobots often find themselves groaning at his antics, Sludge is still valued, and is still trying.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is highly strong and heavily armored; can cause minor earthquakes with a single stomp. Possesses thick armor, and is well-adapted for underwater, swamp, and jungle combat. Uses a laser rifle and a powerful shield in robot mode.

Weaknesses: Subject lacks in speed and intelligence.

Profile: Slapper
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Special Forces Recruit (Dinobots)
Alternative Mode: Ankylosaurus

Profile: Young, eager and more than a little overambitious, Slapper is the newest recruit to the Dinobot team. An avid student of history, Slapper is eager to take part in history and perhaps even make some of it himself. While Grimlock continues to groan when he looks at him, Swoop and Skydive have taken a shine to the young warrior, and are more than happy to help him make a place for himself. More often than not, however, he’s a morale booster, encouraging the team to carry on with his bravery; it’s times like this that Grimlock begins to appreciate him.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is fairly intelligent, and is an avid student of military strategy. Possesses heavy armor that can stand up to all but the most powerful weapons, melee or ranged. Armed with a vibro-hatchet which can double as a concussion blaster.

Weaknesses: Subject is young and inexperienced, and prone towards making mistakes.

Autobots: Wreckers

Subject: Ultra Magnus
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Special Forces Co-Commander
Alternative Mode: Earth-based Car Transport
Mini-Con Partner: Knock Out

Profile: A capable field commander, Ultra Magnus is a trusted ally of Optimus Prime and one of the more well-respected Autobot commanders. Despite being one of the best Autobot commanders on the field, Ultra Magnus is constantly plagued by self-doubt; he prefers to be on the field, considering himself a soldier rather than a commander proper. Despite this, Ultra Magnus exhibits tactical brilliance in battle, and is the commander of an elite Autobot Special Forces unit, the Wreckers.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Ultra Magnus is among the strongest and most intelligent Autobots currently in active service. He is an accomplished soldier, high-level tactician, skilled marksman and hand-to-hand fighter. In robot mode, he wields an omni-blaster capable of converting between three combat modes; heavy attack, precision attack, and mixed attack. He is capable of independent flight in robot mode. In vehicle mode, he can comfortably transport several Transformers.

Weaknesses: Ultra Magnus’s self-doubt can occasionally be debilitating.

Subject: Whirl
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Aerial Assault (Wreckers)
Alternative Mode: Earth-based Helicopter

Profile: Calm, collected and rational under normal circumstances, Whirl becomes an entirely different ‘bot in battle. A furious fighter, his tactics consist of tearing through the air erratically, blasting any and all Decepticons in his path. While he claims that he does this to unnerve his opponents and put them on the edge, many of his allies wonder if this is truly a release for his dark side.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject has great strength, intelligence and endurance. He is an excellent pilot, with exceptional ability to control his maneuvers and advanced sensors, making him more than capable of maintaining a lock on an opponent. His primary armament consists of twin heavy cannons.

Weaknesses: His reckless flying can lead to damage, and targets prepared for his attacks are less intimidated by them.

Subject: Sunstreaker
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Special Forces Operative (Wreckers)
Alternative Mode: Earth-based Sports Car

Profile: Strong-willed, arrogant and self-serving, Sunstreaker considers himself one of the greatest warriors on Cybertron, and relishes every chance he gets to prove it. He has distinguished himself as a member of the Wreckers unit, but his aggressive tactics, overbearing demeanor, and fierce fighting skill have earned him many critics and few real friends among the Autobots – even his ‘brother’, Sideswipe, is uneasy around him. Many wonder why he serves under the Autobot banner in the first place, and he’s never given an explanation.

Attributes, Abilities, and Equipment: Sunstreaker is among the fastest of Autobots, and serves as a vanguard of the Wreckers whenever they enter battle. Is equipped with a twin plasma cannon and high-density combat shield in robot mode, and can access his cannon in vehicle mode as twin booster rockets. Fairly intelligent, with above average strength and high levels of combat prowess.

Weaknesses: Sunstreaker is often unable to work within a team dynamic, and exhibits some sociopathic tendencies.

Subject: Swerve
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: High-Speed Pursuit (Wreckers)
Alternative Mode: Modular Earth-based Sports Car
Mini-Con Partner: Roadhandler

Profile: To call Swerve absent-minded is an unfair assessment; he is, in fact, single-minded. Whenever he is given a task, such as racing on a perilous course or pursuing an opponent, he refuses to let anything stop him from achieving his goals. Many value his determination to solve a problem and his tenacity in battle, but none wish to be in his way when dealing with a problem.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is highly intelligent, as well as a capable sharpshooter and excellent racer. Can combine with his Mini-Con partner to allow for an enhanced flight mode, and can achieve high speeds for short periods.

Weaknesses: Subject possesses light armor, putting him at risk during firefights. While his skill as a racer allows him to avoid major altercations on the road, his occasional accidents lead to both major and minor repairs.

Subject: Roulette
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Sharpshooter (Wreckers)
Alternative Mode: Earth-based Sports Car

Profile: One of three Transformers known as the ‘Viper Sisters’ for their dramatic flair, Roulette was one of only a few survivors of an attack on the Cybertronian city of Nova Cronum. Ashamed at feeling so defenseless, she channeled her guilt at losing her sister Silhouette into her natural sharpshooting skills, becoming the best on Cybertron. Now serving on the Wreckers, Roulette has dedicated herself towards the Autobot cause, using her duty to distract her from feeling like she’d abandoned her siblings long ago.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject has above-average intelligence and is incredibly fast in vehicle mode. Her sharpshooting abilities are equal to the most experienced warriors in the Autobot army, earning her commendations from Optimus Prime himself. She carries a long-range sniper bow as her primary weapon, and relies on a small bladed handgun for close-range defense.

Weaknesses: Subject feels guilty for abandoning her sister, Shadow Stalker; this guilt, while a motivating factor in her actions, has led to deep psychological wounds which have affected her performance.

Profile: Stockade
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Heavy Assault (Wreckers)
Alternative Mode: Assault Tank

Profile: Armed to the teeth, Stockade’s only passion is combat; he’s bored out of his mind otherwise, so much that he becomes uncharacteristically quiet and withdrawn when he hasn’t seen action in a while. He only feels alive when he’s in combat, and prefers to get to the fighting as quickly as possible; just tell him where to go and what to shoot, and he’ll blast it into scrap. He’s a fearless and unconventional fighter, making him an asset to the Wreckers, but many Autobots wonder what he’ll do when the fight is finally over.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject has above-average intelligence and immense strength and endurance. He’s an excellent soldier and field commander. In vehicle mode he can traverse the roughest terrain at high speeds, easily tearing through most obstacles in his path between his plasma cannon and heavy armor. Equipped with arm-mounted plasma grenade launchers and powerful claws in robot mode.

Weaknesses: Cannot easily manipulate small objects in robot mode, and also prone to overuse his weapons, wearing them down.

Subject: Fireflight
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Stealth Reconnaissance (Wreckers)
Alternative Mode: Earth-based Stealth Bomber

Profile: A relaxed and peaceful Autobot, Fireflight enjoys his role of reconnaissance as it allows him to catch glimpses of places he’s never seen. Unfortunately, he tends to do this at high speeds. Good natured and a capable fighter, but easily distracted by the scenery. He’s often partnered with his fellow fliers to keep him focused on the task at hand, which he only manages to do with great difficulty.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Can fly at speeds approaching Mach 4. Equipped with missiles capable of releasing a self-igniting, flammable mist. Fairly intelligent, despite his absent-mindedness.

Weaknesses: Subject has a short attention span, thus making himself a risk to others while flying.

Subject: Air Raid
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Warrior (Wreckers)
Alternative Mode: Earth-based Jet

Profile: Spontaneous and fearless, Air Raid was an ideal choice for the Wreckers, more than willing to charge in guns blazing against the enemy. He prefers to act rather than to think, feeling that doing otherwise would make him a liability to his teammate. While this makes him an aid to the Wreckers, Ultra Magnus wishes that he’d be more careful in combat, despite his unconstrained, proactive attitude.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Armed with Vulcan cannons and air-to-air, heat-seeking missiles in vehicle mode, and capable of reaching speeds of up to Mach 5. Can also use missiles in robot mode, and capable of flight in robot mode.

Weaknesses: His recklessness often puts him at risk.

Re: Transformers: Armada (Revisited)


Autobots: Overcast & Skyfall
Autobots: Guardians of Space and Time

Subject: Omega Supreme
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Heavy Defense
Alternative Mode: Cybertronian Transport Unit

Profile: The legendary commander of the Omega Sentinels, Omega Supreme is tasked with defending Cybertron from all threats; when all else fails, he is called upon. Powerful, determined and unstoppable, Omega can decimate entire armies in one attack without assistance, and when it’s required, he can call upon and coordinate the legions of Omega Sentinels scattered throughout Cybertron. He takes no joy from the carnage, but great joy in knowing that he is Cybertron’s last, best defense against attack.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is quite intelligent and cunning, and possesses immense strength and firepower. Designed with a small holding bay within his torso for carrying small Transformers or disassembled larger ones, and carries a large assortment of heavy and medium armaments. Possesses limited tractor beams capable of grabbing hold of an opponent and tossing them away or about. Capable of separating into three smaller components; a small central core unit about the size of a Mini-Con, and two larger units capable of forming two smaller vehicles or stationary defense platforms.

Weaknesses: Subject moves slowly under gravity in robot mode, and can be defeated given proper strategy.

Subject: Overcast
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Deep Space Operations
Alternative Mode: Advanced Space Transport/Fighter

Profile: Closely related to the Autobot Jetfire, Overcast has been adrift in the heavens for ages, preferring to stay outside of the conflict with the Decepticons. With his recent witnessing of the destruction of Nebulos at the hands of Unicron, his priorities have shifted towards preventing such an event from recurring in the future. Determined to defend lives, Overcast has formally rejoined the Autobots to defend Cybertron against the terror he knows is coming.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is highly intelligent, strong and fast, and is capable of interstellar travel. Subject is loyal to the Autobot cause and protective of life. Possesses advanced stealth systems allowing him to disappear from most sensor screens. Can Powerlink with all Autobots possessing similar technology.

Weaknesses: Subject possesses few weaknesses, but has limited combat experience.

Subject: Skyfall
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Archivist
Alternative Mode: Earth-based Jet

Profile: Skyfall has long been dogged by the sense that there is more to him than he is aware, that he possesses a purpose greater than most Transformers. As a result, he’s spent ages seeking answers in the cosmos, and has only gotten inklings of his true purpose. Despite this, he feels a deep connection to Cybertron, and will proudly rise to defend it against any threat.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is highly intelligent, and possesses great levels of endurance. Capable of flight in either mode, and armed with twin laser cannons and a 30 mm cannon. Can shape Energon into a plasma pulse weapon, and can generate a near-impenetrable force field bubble around himself.

Weaknesses: Subject cannot consciously control his force field ability, and his travels often land him in dangerous situations.

Subject: Landquake
Affiliation: Decepticon
Position: Energon Specialist
Alternative Mode: Earth-based Light Tank

Profile: A lost soul among the Decepticons, Landquake was always convinced that he had a greater destiny. While initially attracted to Megatron’s views, he cast his lot with those against Megatron after witnessing the Decepticon tyrant’s means towards his ends of Cybertronian ‘security’. While still bored with service in Energon refining and dreaming of service within the military, Landquake can’t help but notice the ineptitude of the Decepticon armed forces, leaving him to keep to himself and explore Cybertron and its secrets. In the process, however, he’s found information which promises to propel him towards his dreamed-of destiny.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is highly intelligent and skilled in Energon refining. Can shape Energon into a plasma cannon. Also armed with twin heavy shotguns on his arms, EMP cannons, and smoke dispensers. Equipped with jump jets, which allow him limited gliding ability.

Weaknesses: Subject is easily distracted, and possesses limited speed in vehicle mode.

Re: Transformers: Armada (Revisited)


Autobots: Crew of the Axalon

Subject: Rodimus
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Ship Commander, Omnicon Foreman
Alternative Mode: Earth-based Racing Semi

Profile: Young and inexperienced, Rodimus represents the first of a new generation of Autobot commanders. Despite his inexperience, Rodimus is among the bravest and most cavalier of all Autobots, ever willing to seek out adventure and excitement no matter where it rests. While his youthful vigor and courage more than endear him to the officers under his command, Rodimus has a long way to go before he becomes a proper leader. But he still has much potential.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is fairly intelligent and among the fastest and most agile Transformers for his size and model. Trained in tactics and strategy, but not bound by them. Armed with a photon cannon and four shoulder-mounted pulse-casters. Can combine with other Autobots of similar size via Powerlinx technology.

Weaknesses: Subject’s boredom and tendency to act before he thinks are both weaknesses which have led him to more trouble than he’d care to admit.

Subject: Bulkhead
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Heavy Aerial Combat
Alternative Mode: Earth-based Combat Helicopter

Profile: Among the eldest warriors on Cybertron and the few to show it, Bulkhead has seen more action in the field than most Autobots care to admit and refuses to retire. Fearless, eager and experienced, he’s among the most capable and dependable Transformers left. He may sometimes complain about his old age, but he’s just as powerful and fit as ever. Despite that, however, he’s among the first to crack a joke in the field of battle, and combat abilities or not, everyone appreciates him being there to back them up.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is highly intelligent and among the most experienced in combat. While his strength has failed with age, he’s still quite fast and adaptable. Has full maneuvering ability in vehicle mode, and can combine with a dedicated weapons system in either mode. Is equipped with a chopper-blade and multiple missile launchers.

Weaknesses: Subject’s experiences can often distract him from the present, and his armor requires constant maintenance.

Subject: Cliffjumper
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Ground Reconnaissance
Alternative Mode: Earth-based Dune Buggy

Profile: A lover of risk, Cliffjumper enjoys tearing through rough terrain and performing dangerous stunts. A skilled driver and fighter, with heavy armor and powerful weapons, Cliffjumper’s managed to survive more situations than most Autobots care to count. While Autobot Commend appreciates his efforts on their behalf and are impressed with his abilities, they’ve been quick to give him reprimands whenever necessary. This hasn’t dulled his love of adventure, and has only encouraged him to continue...if only below the radar.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is surprisingly fast and possesses heavy armor, allowing him to survive the greatest damage. Custom-modified for desert combat. Armed with heavy pistols and shoulder cannon arrays. Possesses Powerlinx technology allowing him to combine with any similarly-designed Autobot.

Weaknesses: Cliffjumper’s apparent disregard for orders and love of risks has led him to alienate more than one fellow Autobot.

Subject: Wing Saber
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Melee/Aerial Combat
Alternative Mode: Armored Flying Wing

Profile: Fast, agile and an excellent pilot, Wing Saber nonetheless is a bit rebellious, with a love of adventure and action. This love led him to abandon the relative safety of ferrying diplomatic missions to action in the Autobot militia, as well as a few dubious upgrades to his exostructure. Despite his peculiarities, Wing Saber is loyal to the Autobot cause and protective of life in all its forms, and his seemingly reckless battle charges are more aimed at ending the battle quickly to prevent casualties than to gain personal glory.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is fairly intelligent and extremely fast, capable of reaching speeds exceeding Mach 5 in vehicle mode. Possesses advanced weapons and can separate into four smaller components, allowing him to combine with an Omega Sentinel to aid in battlefield coordination. Is skilled in sword-fighting.

Weaknesses: Subject has limited mobility in robot mode due to his heavy armor. Sometimes charges in without thinking ahead.

Subject: Tow-Line
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Communications Officer
Alternative Mode: Earth-based Compact Van

Profile: An older and experienced warrior, Tow-Line more than exemplifies the value of self-reliance. While gruff and rough around the edges, Tow-Line is devoted and loyal to his comrades, and more than willing to leap to their aid despite his misgivings about combat. While his intelligence and endurance make him an excellent fighter, he prefers the quiet life of operating behind the scenes and relaying data and strategy to his allies. However, should the need arise, Tow-Line will leap into action.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is highly intelligent and possesses surprising levels of endurance. Possesses advanced communications equipment in vehicle mode that can convert into a powerful microwave cannon. Can combine with other Autobots or with personal reconnaissance drone via Powerlinx technology.

Weaknesses: Possesses limited physical strength and low speed.

Subject: Downshift
Affiliation: Autobot
Position: Reconnaissance Racer, Land-Based
Alternative Mode: (1) Earth-based Sports Car, (2) Earth-based Muscle Car

Profile: Brave and fast on his feet, Downshift is an adventurous young Autobot who tends to rush head-long into everything he does. While his fellow Autobot appreciate his efforts, be they in combat or in a lab, they often can’t help but groan when he gets himself hurt. Many other warriors, among them Rodimus and Hot Shot, have vowed to help guide the younger Transformer and help him to grow. Even now, however, he’s beginning to show great potential.

Attributes, Abilities and Equipment: Subject is fairly intelligent, and among the fastest of ground-based Autobots. Highly agile in both modes; has an eye for details that allows him to exploit enemy weaknesses or solve puzzles. Armed with twin medium blasters in robot mode that can combine to form one long dual cannon unit. Could previously combine with other Autobots via Powerlinx technology; can currently access an Energon claw via a Cyber Key.

Weaknesses: Somewhat impulsive and absent-minded; his over-eagerness can get him and his allies in trouble.
