    Star Saber
    Allegiance: Autobot
    Sub-Group: Brainmaster
    Function: Supreme Commander (of the Victory Autobots)


    Transformation: Large Jet (Saber, V-Star)

    Abilities: Leader of the Cybertron forces. The best swordsman in the universe, this mightiest of the Brainmaster warriors contains within him the symbol of good known as the "Courage Brain."

    Weapons: Saber Blade, Saber Laser

    Final Attack: The "Planetary Impulse Sword" - Gathering the entire energy of a planet into his Saber Blade, this invincible final attack can destroy just about anything.


    Profile: Took God Ginrai's place as the fifth Cybertron Leader. Together with Blacker and company, this veteran Brainmaster has travelled about the universe for eons. He is a universal hero, who would carry through for Good even if it meant exhausting his life force. Normally he is very gentle and quiet.

    Ultra Magnus
    Allegiance: Autobot
    Function: City Commander

    "Consistency is victory."

    Profile: Ultra Magnus is all soldier. He is most comfortable when he is carrying out Optimus Prime's orders - giving it all of his magnificent fighting skills, courage and gift for battlefield improvisation. And he is uncomfortable when the mantle of leadership is placed over his broad shoulders. He sees himself as a follower, not a commander, and is reluctant to assume authority until it is clear that he has no choice but to lead. And when he does finally lead, he is resolute, fair and courageous beyond reproach. He is ever-ready to sacrifice himself for the good of his companions and mission, and unstinting in his preparedness so that his "people" will be as protected as possible.

    Abilities: Ultra Magnus carries missile launchers capable of hitting a target 30 miles away.

    Ultra Magnus is a strong fighter. However, it has been noted a few times in earlier matches that his effectiveness is seriously hampered by the terrain of Yellowstone National Park. Star Saber, who can fly, will not be nearly as limited in mobility, since he won't be hemmed in by trees, rocks, and lack of roads. Furthermore, Star Saber is more skilled, has better Endurance, and has much better Firepower than his opponent. Combine all this with the fact that Ultra Magnus' Firepower is rather limited and his odds of grounding his opponent are thus low, and this battle is likely to go to Star Saber. Ultra Magnus will put up a strong fight. He always does. But in the end, it won't be quite enough to defeat an airborne opponent who meets or exceeds him in every stat.

    I gotta go with Star Saber, Star Saber (while granted Victory Saber) survived a whole planet exploding. Magnus got shot down by Sixshot who just unleashed a barrage on him from the air. Star Saber got that flying advantage. Plus missile spam.

    Ultra Magnus is strong, but it takes nothing less than a combiner to go toe to toe with Star Saber.
