    So I decided to go full on Scott Cawthon and start way earlier than I initially planned. I’m a creature that requires something to keep myself busy at all times. So I decided to why not post the next installment now. Now that phase one is finished we can move on to phase two, which I believe is where the Transformer’s series truly begins. It's also the darkest phase in the series, so most of the fun is being traded in for horror and despair. Now for some quick character updates like I’ve been doing since Enslavement.

    Splicer has reverted to his original Cybertronian car form in Beginnings. This time he has flight capabilities added to the vehicle.

    Soundwave has changed as well. His design is now a bulkier version of his Prime counterpart.

    The Fallen and Mindwipe are promoted to series regulars for this phase.

    The new core Decepticon cast consists of Galvatron, Cyclonus, Scourge, Soundwave, Splicer, Knockout, Shockblast, the Eradicons, and a certain guy who’s popular in the comics.

    The Constructicons are demoted to secondary characters due to the lack of Overload and a weakened Devastator.

    The Coneheads and Astrotrain are promoted to secondary characters.

    The new core Autobot cast consists of Rodimus, Ultra Magnus, Springer, Arcee, Kup, Blurr, Perceptor, the new medic, Dinobots, and a few surprises.

    Bumblebee, Sideswipe, Jazz, Blaster, and Roadbuster are demoted to secondary/tertiary characters.

    Smokescreen, Proxima, Overclock, the Aerialbots, the Minicon trio, and Wreck-Gar are promoted to secondary characters.

    Mirage is still fighting for his life. Pray for his recovery.

    The planet of Junk and Cybertron are basically BFFs now.

    Seacon relations are surprisingly calm for the time being.

    Now it’s time for the official synopsis. It’s been one year after the defeat of Unicron, and the newly Autobot-controlled Cybertron is returning to normalcy. With the majority of the Decepticons banished to another planet Rodimus is having to deal with the politics of Cybertron. With a few Decepticons hiding out on Earth Rodimus creates a team of Autobots to weed them out, completely unaware that one Decepticon in particular has big plans for the planet. Rodimus’s challenges grows with human politician's doubt in the Autobots, the return of an insane Galvatron, a toxic alliance between the Decepticons and Quintessons, Daniel being trapped on a remote planet with a legendary Decepticon, and the Predacons revealing themselves to the world. All of this is poultry compared to the real threat. The release of Unicron’s energy acted as a beacon to let all parties know Cybertron’s location. One of those parties happens to be a long thought deceased part of Cybertron’s past. His name is Thundertron. He leads a group of mutated Cybertronians named the Star Seekers on a ship nearly the size of Earth. With all the odds stacked in his favor Thundertron plans to destroy the planet for abandoning him and his crew to die. Can Rodimus confront his responsibilities and accept his role as the Prime? Or will the vengeful sailor finally have his revenge and decimate the very world that scorned him? It all comes down to an epic four way battle for control with a shocking conclusion that will decide the fate of the rest of this phase.

    And all of our new characters.

    Here are the first of the bios. I figured we should start with everyone's favorite characters: Humans!

    Older Carly: Since her wedding a very short time after Eradication Carly has decided to bring the traditional housewife, much to all feminist’s raging. In between that time she’s been the number one model in America for ten years straight. While her temper has eased in time it’s still prevalent whenever Spike or Daniel does something she disapproves of. She’s in a constant rivalry with Arcee over who the best mother for Daniel is.

    Flint Chase: Chip had to have children at this time, and the result is Flint. Flint carries many of his father’s traits like his intelligence and lady charming. He’s daniel’s best friend despite being a year older than him. He’s always trying to get him to break out his shell by getting him in sticky situations. He’s slightly jealous of Daniel because he gets to take part on some missions with the Autobots. His father just won’t let him.

    Older Chip: Ever since Eradication he's been able to walk again, but he needs a walking stick to help him along the way. Since then Chip has become the CEO of Chase Technology, a multi million dollar company designed to help those with physical disabled individuals and provide basic defense for humans in case of a Decepticon attack. He also is partially funding Spike's military unit.

    Older Ace: Ace’s flying days may be over, but that doesn’t mean he’s through helping the Autobots. He is part of the newly instated Autobot aligned military with Tyrone. He’s the third in command answering only to Spike and Fowler respectively. While he seems fine there is just some parts from the past that he just can’t let go. Which begs the question: Will he divulge his secret obsession to his comrades?

    Older Fowler: Fowler returned from the Pentagon and became the second in command of the Autobot aligned military. He now prefers working behind the scenes instead being out in the field, but that doesn’t mean he won’t get his hands dirty if the situation is that daunting. He’s Spike’s closest confidant, often giving him advice on how to deal with both the political heat and strategy against both foreign nations and Decepticons alike. He may be getting up there in age, but that hasn’t slowed that sharp mind one bit.

    Older Tyrone: Tyrone will always be there to do some whooping to the Decepticons, and that’s exactly why he’s part of the new military unit. Now in the background he’s become the top general, answering directly to Fowler and Spike. When it’s time to go boom he’s the first one on the case.

    Marissa Fairborne: Unlike most Fairbornes this one is not for the faint of heart. This version is our main human antagonist who holds a grudge against all Cybertronians. She was a college senior when the battle of New York happened. Her campus was attacked by Decepticons and killed many of her friends and her father, who happened to be visiting at the time. Seeing the Decepticons as ruthless killing machines and the Autobots as failures for not saving her loved ones she grew a severe hatred of all Cybertronians. Since then she’s worked her way up into the highest ranks of the government. She’s attempting to turn the government against the Autobots, but the only obstacle left standing in her way is Spike Witwicky. This complicates her agenda because she secretly harbors unrequited feelings for him. Regardless of how she feels her burning desire for vengeance is stronger than anything else in the world. If killing Spike is the key to her success then so be it.

    Rad: In a different world Rad would want to tell you about the Transformers. This is a much more crooked world. Here he is the secondary human antagonist and the main bully to Daniel. Unlike most bullies Rad doesn’t physically or even verbally abuses his victim. Instead it’s manipulation that plays into Daniel’s own securities. That or he gets Carlos to do it for him. And to make him even more hateable he’s flipping hipster! Everything has to go on Vinyl and he always wears the douchiest styles that just scream out for attention. Hopefully one day he’ll choke on his own vegan soft drinks. For now he is dating Alexis, Daniel’s crush.

    Alexis: In the Armada world Alexis was a very nice person with a surprisingly well written character arc. This version did start out that way, but ever since Rad came into the picture she’s become a much more cynical and self centered bitch. She’s painfully aware of Daniels crush and continually leads him along for her and the gang’s amusement. What evil creature would hurt such a sweetheart like Daniel? Well she and the others would.

    Carlos: Does anyone remember what significance Carlos had in Armada? Any at all? Nobody? Just as I thought. Well I can’t really say it worked out for him here either. He’s Rad’s best friend, but we never really know to what degree. He’s always following Rad’s orders in an attempt for approval of his peers. He’s a thug, always beating up Daniel and blatantly yelling out hispanic stereotype phrases to prove he’s the muchacho in charge. He even wears that old school thing gear with the black jacket and black bandana over his head. Knowing this series bullies like him always get what’s coming to them in the most horrific of ways.

    Abdul Fakkadi: In G1 we remember him as the leader of the greatest fictional country to ever live known as Carbombia. This is also the situation here. Unlike his G1 self he is actually a good person. If there’s anything her’s guilty of if’s being a complete idiot. He really does love his country and wants to do right by his people. That is easier said than done since he is ignorant of all the world’s problems and has no idea how to change for the better.

    Omar Muhammed: His full name is Omar Abdul Asad Abad, Eyleesh Eyleem Mohammed, but we’ll just call him Omar for short. He’s the tertiary huan antagonist, but he’s only a villain to Abdul. He’s the right hand of the Carbombian leader, and hates him with all his might. He believes that Abdul is an evil man bent on destroying his homeland from the inside. He believes that if he doesn’t act now his country is doomed.

    Cyborg Michael Bay: After winning best director and best picture America plunged into chaos. His haters could not stand him having success. After the tensions died down Bay fell under a rare heart disease that would’ve been otherwise fatal. Luckily the newly elected president demanded his life to be saved because the world needed more Transturner movies. Now he’s a cyborg in Futurama fashion complete with his head in a jar. The robotic suit stands at 8 feet tall and is strong enough to lift up a school bus. He wants to help the Autobots, but with some of his new responsibilities that will be revealed in part one he has to focus on both his directing and political career.

    Cool line up. Gotta say it's a surprising twist seeing the three main kids form Armada be done this way.

    And here are the Autobot bios.

    Red Alert: With Ratchet gone there had to be someone to fill the void. In a time when there was a fear that there would never be another prodigy medic again Red Alert stood up to the challenge. He was Ratchet’s number one disciple, and it certainly shows. He is just as competent if not more than his teacher. At first glance nobody would think that from a medic with one hand. Red Alert lost his right hand during an attempt to save a fellow Autobot’s life. During the surgery a Decepticon raid interrupted him, and caused an explosion that blew off his hand and left him for dead. After surviving he found his patient dead, not by the Decepticon’s doing but rather Red Alert’s unfortunate timing. It was the only patent he could not save. Since then he never gave himself a replacement hand out of a grim reminder of his failure. Instead his hand is replaced with a multi-purpose tool that he can use for both healing and combat. He is of course based off of his Armada incarnation.

    Weapons: His multipurpose tool has liquid nitrogen, lasers, a heat beam, and a USB port. You can say it comes quite in handy.

    Voice used: Red Alert from Armada

    Skylynx: Oh ho! When all hope is lost the amazing Skylynx comes when he’s needed most. He’s strong, intelligent, charming, and oh so humble. It’s not his fault he’s superior to everyone else outside of Rodimus Prime, it’s just that the universe chose him to be the current Prime’s greatest ally. Before he was the second greatest Autobot known to all he was one of Shockblast’s genetic experiments. He was the one with a large neck that Elita-1 freed. When he first was mutated Skylynx had a severe emotional trauma that left him lost. Eventually he overcame his demons and took his new look in stride. Even if his ego can get annoying he at least backs it up with both raw power and tactical prowess.

    Abilities: Skylynx can breath fire, a most welcome power. In addition to that his whole bottom half can detach and gain sentience... somehow. That never got explained in G1, and there’s really no way to describe it now.

    Voice used: Jarvis/Vision from the MCU.

    Sandstorm: In a world lacking Autobot triple changers Sandstorm joins the fray as the remaining member. He’s not the greatest warrior on the planet, but he has a strong moral compass and a massive amount of potential. Rodimus had taken note of this and has appointed him as the leader of a team of Autobots stationed on Earth to hunt down the Decepticons still in hiding. It’s like RID but more to the point. They’ve been doing a fairly good job so far, but little do they know they’re about to face an enemy smarter than they are. He’s based off his new Generations figure.

    Guns: The Sand Blaster gun which I guess blasts sand. That doesn’t really do much unless it hit someone’s eyes. He has heavily cannons in his aircraft mode.
    Voice used: The original TMNT 2012 Leonardo


    Outback: Crikey look at this struth! We’ve seen some koalas with some roaring bazumas but this takes the cake! If you didn’t realize it by now Outback is an Australian stereotype, fit with the slang and accent. He even likes to wear large bush hats on his head. Outside his silly demeanor is a surprisingly competent individual. When Outback was created a mutation in his protoform caused his eyes to melt and fuse to his face, making him completely blind. This became a gift, however, and the myth about having heightened senses when one is rendered useless holds merit. With his newfound talents Outback created a popular reality show called The Decepticon Hunter, where he finds Decepticons that are wanted on Cybertron and Earth. Since there is a team looking for them on Earth he might as well join it. He’s a blatant parody of the late icon Steve Irwin.

    Melee: Outback carries his trusty Energon lasso, the perfect tool for rounding up those Decepticon buggers. It’s durability is impressive, able to hold even a Dinobot in place.

    Guns: Has a sniper rifle and a tranquilizer gun.

    Voice used: Australian accent.

    Deep-Down: I promised that we would come across more original characters as we progress further into the series, and this guy is proof. Though to be fair nobody will usually remember the guy who came after Splicer that much. The one after? Maybe. He’ll just have to do for now. Deep-Down’s primary concern was never violence, but when the war erupted he had to pick a side and this is where he ended up. Before all that he was renowned treasure hunter scouring the oceans for their legendary prizes. He was completely alone in this field because all Cybertronians fear the wrath of the Seacons. Very few choose to be boats, and even fewer are foolish enough to be a submarine. He’s been quite lucky so far. Now that the war is seemingly over he’s been acting as a liaison between the barbaric Seasons and the rest of the surface world. Desperate for a new job Deep-Down just might consider joining the Earth team.

    Melee: The hooks from his submarine forn can fire from his wrists. He can swing them around and can use them to latch onto people or other things. He also has piledrivers similar to Crossbones in Civil War.

    Guns: He has a sphere gun. It basically fires blue spheres of energy that does light to moderate damage.

    Voice used: Aquaman from the New 52 DC animated movies.

    Backfire: This youngster just can’t wait to show off his skills to his team. Part of the new Earth group Backfire brings speed and agility to the group, but it’s just as much a detriment as it is a benefit. Backfire would rather capture the bad guys all by himself than listen to Sandstorm. You know it’s bad when Smokescreen, the youngest active Cybertronian has to try and teach someone older than him the meaning of humility and teamwork. Perhaps if he can unlodge his head from his afterburner he might be the ideal teammate. His design is based off of ROTF scout class Knockout, but is renamed due to the real Knockout being a main character from this point on.

    Guns: A plasma cannon on his left arm is all he has, but he has quite the aim with it.

    Voice used: Nolan North Generic

    Might is well lump in both groups, so here are the Decepticon and Predacon bios.


    Sixshot: From the very moment Sixshot was created it was evident to all that he was destined for greatness. His spark was forged with a rare mutation where he could transform into four additional modes. Shockblast believed that there could be more, and eventually mutated him even further to create a fifth alternate mode, a winged wolf. With five new modes and his own robot form he became the world’s first six-changer, forever earning the name Sixshot. He has an alt mode for flight, ground, heavy combat, and sea travel because he wanted to cover all possible bases for any upcoming battles. The wolf is the only mode he cannot switch out. After receiving his name instantly became part of the legendary Shadow Core, and became the third highest ranked member. Of the current top ten greatest Decepticon fighters he is listed as number 9. For top fighters among the Shadow Core he is also listed as 3. His closest ally is Tarn, whom he has shared many great victories. With all these incredible accomplishments Sixshot has grown to be quite arrogant. He yearns for a worthy opponent and sees those with less skill than him as fools. He wishes to die in battle at the hands of a superior opponent because it is the way of a true warrior. He has been taught to never have any personal attachments to anyone. All emotions are weaknesses to him. Despite his cold demeanor he has a high sense of honor to his opponents, never wanting to get an unfair advantage over them. Even with all his skill he actually prefers to fight by using trickery or constantly transforming to throw his enemy’s off. He’s really not all that bad of guy. It’s not his fault he has been taught no other way, but without some sort of divine intervention it appears he will continue to be a nightmare to all Autobots who oppose him. His design has completely changed. Look up Gundam Sariel to get a general idea of what he looks like.

    Melee: Sixshot’s main weapons are two dual edged spears that he spins around. The spears can be separated in the middle to become four smaller blades. These blades attach themselves to his arms to create dual arm blades for each one. The wings from his flying wolf form also double as elbow blades.

    Guns: Sixshot’s main weapons are dual Hypersonic Concussion Blasters. These fire large orbs of blue energy that have one of two effects. The first is upon impact with a target where it feels like getting hit from a recoil. The second is if he misses the sphere sends out a shockwave that disorients and slows down his opponents.

    Abilities: Aside from the obvious six modes Sixshot fights with smoke bombs, holograms, hologram disguises, camouflage, and decoy dummies. He’s like a ninja, but just not as smooth.

    Tarn: If there is one individual that strikes as much fear into an Autobot’s spark as much as Megatron or Soundwave it is definitely Tarn. I want to briefly state that this Tarn is not Roller or anyone else in disguise. Tarn is Tarn, and he’s bit different from what you’re used to. This version is not a POP, outlier, Phase Sixer, or whatever contrived overpowered individual the comics speak of. He’s also the first and only Duocon, having two alt modes for the price of one. The front half turns into an offroad vehicle, and the second half turns into a tank that resembles Prime Shockwave’s. Tarn is a decepticon fanatic, so much so that he changed his face to resemble the Decepticon logo. He is completely loyal to the Decepticon cause, but that doesn’t quite mean he’s loyal to Galvatron. He does what he believes is best for his people and does not shy away from speaking out or even rebelling against those in command. In his earliest days Tarn was in charge of the DJD, or better known as the Decepticon Justice Division. That whole career wound up a disaster because everyone outside of him was too weak and incompetent. With his hopes down the drain all seemed lost. Megatron saw massive potential in Tarn and gave him a second chance. Together they formed what would become the most dangerous group to ever exist. It’s name was The Shadow Core. Tarn leads a group of the most dangerous and skilled Decepticons out there. Even the weakest members need at least two or three Autobots to bring them down. Tarn is the second most powerful of the group and the second most skilled. His accomplishments eventually gave him a kill that most Decepticons only dream of. This cold, calculating one man army is the textbook definition of perfection. He deems all relationships outside of brotherhood to be weakness, and that emotions are the key to failure. That doesn’t mean he can’t feel, but he choses not to. He hates two things most of all. They are Autobots, who he deems as genetic failures that need purging, and traitors. If someone were to ever betray them then they better find the deepest, darkest, and most remote crevice they can find for Tarn’s thirst for vengeance and rage is so brutal and terrifying even Galvatron believes he goes too far. Pray no one gets him angry, because it’s a fate worse than death. Prepare yourselves because by the time you meet this Tarn he will be the one you want in the comics.

    Melee: Surprisingly Tarn prefers to have his weapons to be fairly low tech. His main weapons are two machetes he carries on his back. He also sports a swiss army knife on his chest like movie Hound.

    Guns: The ironically named “Swift Justice” is a high powered tank cannon that can either fire shells or lasers that can moderate damage a Dinobot if fully charged. Just in case that doesn’t work he has Spartan class lasers installed in the palm of his hands.

    Other gadgets: Tarn loves old school hunting, so of course he has a ton what can only be described as Cybertron’s equivalent of beartraps. His most high tech gadget is his nightmare cloak. If you’ve ever seen the popular game Dead by Daylight where the Wraith uncloaks with the ashes materializing his body it’s exactly like that.

    Powers: Tarn is incredibly powerful. In fact his strength is nearly on par with Motormaster. I think it’s fair to say he’s quite overpowered, but considering who we’re speaking of it’s justified.

    Reflector: Finally after spending three installments stuck as a comatose camera the last of Soundwave’s race reenters the fray. Before the war Reflector was one of the many great philosophers who wanted people to “reflect” on their own life choice, and thus Reflector became his name. When the war did become his only option Reflector became a master spy, rivaled only by Soundwave and his team. Even with all his impressive skills Reflector is a pacifist at heart. He’d much rather talk his way out of a situation and befriend his would-be enemy. His charming and polite mannerisms are certainly helpful attribute to have. If there is no other option he uses one of his many tricks to provide a quick escape. In his downtime he tries to educate anyone interesting in his drabbles or admire nature. While he’s one of the most loyal Decepticons out there he feels like the new generations have lost the desire of being intellectually superior and becoming more than mindless thugs. Perhaps with his return he can help the faction he loves so dearly to come back to their old ways.

    Powers and Abilities: Just like in G1 Reflector can split himself into thirds, but this time the other two without the camera lense on their chest are clones. They are usually diversions to take the hit for him while he makes their escape. They retain the original’s personality but understand that their fate is most often sealed. He can only have two out at a time, and if one dies he can instantly create a new one. Reflector’s final power is transforming into his camera form and making a powerful flash that can temporarily blind anything in a six meter radius.

    Steeljaw: It was only a matter of time before the charismatic and charming Steeljaw would make his debut on earth. If there was ever a more talented liar than Starscream it would be Steeljaw. Long before his transformation into the wolfman he was a lowly Decepticon that grew tired of Megatron’s rule. He spoke out against the established order and suggested sedition. These ideas fell on deaf ears, and Steeljaw became a nobody. Perhaps his ideas did not go as unnoticed as he thought, and the individual that we know as Vertebreak agreed with him wholeheartedly. Since then he became Steeljaws first friend and his only ally, at least for now. They worked together closely to erase Steeljaw from all records, making him a ghost among men. Since then he’s become the character we’ve grown to know and love. This version is more kind and open minded than his original counterparts. He has no real desire for power and wishes to bring his followers into a place where they feel like they belong, and Earth seems to be just the place. He might even allow Autobots who are unsure of themselves to join him, but for he’s all alone on a planet he is not familiar with. I’m sure that will all change very soon, and when that happens no Autobot, Decepticon, or human will stop him.

    Melee: His claws are sharp enough to cut through steel, and this time he has claws that come out of both hands just like Wolverine. His tail can be used to whip around anyone foolish enough to get close.

    Powers and Abilities: His transformation has augmented most of his natural senses. He can process information twice as fast as a normal Cybertronian, has heightened reflexes, heightened hearing, and a sense of smell. His tail is prehensile like a monkey’s able to grab objects and even pick a lock. His main claws are sensitive enough to pick locks as well. By far his most impressive ability would have to be his power of persuasion. Even if you know he’s lying you just want to believe him anyway. If you have even a shred of doubt about your allegiance you may find yourself convinced to join his cause.

    Voice used: The one and only Steeljaw.

    Sonar: Sonar is RID Nightstrike. He appeared in Eradication as the bat creature that Elita-1 freed and made his way to Earth by blending in with the Insecticon drones. Since then he’s been hiding out in caves without contact with anyone. Not much is known about Sonar other than he was a deserted than was captured and sent to Shockblast for experimentation. The tests left him an amnesiac, with little memory of who he was. The only reason he calls himself Sonar is because that’s what Shockblast nickname him. It’s a cold world out there, and with no friends around he’s become more fearful of his surroundings. Perhaps if a friendly wolfman meets him that may change.

    Powers and Abilities: Sonar got his name because like a real bat he can use echolocation, but his is more advance, able to see underground and locate hidden passages. The echolocation can be doubled as a sonic shriek that has similar properties to an EMP, or it could be used to knock enemies back. Like Steeljaw he has a faster information processing and hearing. His most notorious power is his vampiric nature. Just like in RID he can harvest Energon through his palms, but it takes a long time. He usually does it to disorient his enemy with hit and run tactics. The other way is getting up close and biting them through the neck, and his fangs absorb it.

    Octane: In a world of great salesman like Swindle, there always has to be a balance with a douche like Octane. A triple changer and an absolute scumbag, Octane is the last guy you want to rely on. He’s selfish a shameless liar, and just terrible at his job. He always leaves his customers begging because he’s the only one left to help them. It’s amazing he hasn’t been killed yet, but perhaps his thuggish fighting style makes him just likable enough to keep him alive. Don’t turn your back on him because you find an knife plunged straight through it.

    Melee: Octane sports an oversized serrated clamp that can spin like Beast Wars Dinobot’s weapon.

    Guns: Twin Quad pistols.

    Voice used: If you don’t know who Christopher Walken is then shame on you!

    Doubledealer: are you a gambling man? No? Then that’s too bad my friends. Doubledealer has the best poker face on Cybertron. Nobody ever knows what this deviant is thinking. With a charming Cajun accent this triple changer will win your heart and then tear it out of your chest in the moments that follow. His skills are admired among his peers, but nobody ever wants to gamble against him because he always wins. The Autobots better put on a good show or Doubledealer will make short work of them.

    Melee: Scimitar

    Guns: Missile launcher

    Voice used: Cajun accent

    Riot: Oh hey it’s another Transformers Universe character! Riot is probably the winner of most annoying female character of all time. All she does is complain and moan about everything. Nobody knows what Riot can do, but it’s probably nothing good. There isn’t much to talk about her other than she’s annoying.

    Guns: SMGS

    Abilities: Can complain and moan for hours straight without pause.

    Voice used: The annoying voice of Tara Reid

    Predacons: These legendary beasts of Cybertron were their equivalents of Dinosaurs. They too were eventually wiped extinct, but like the dinosaurs their fossils remained. As you know somehow a few were on Earth and helped create the Dinobots, and Shockwave’s answer to them was cloning three beasts to combat them. Little would everyone know that they learned how to transform, think, and speak just like them. These monsters are the most powerful subfaction characters in their beast forms. With such raw power they could turn the tide of any battle.The trio is led by Predaking, the most sophisticated and powerful of the group. The Decepticons may finally have a chance to take back their home, but can they convince these wildcards to stay loyal before evolution becomes revolution?

    Predaking: The mightiest of all the Predacons is given a second chance in this series. Just like his Prime self he was more of a neutral character. I’d like to explore than concept in depth this time. His ego has been retained, but this time he believes that his species is superior to all others.After all he named himself a king, so shouldn't he be the one that rules it? He’s still new to how the real world works, and is easily fooled. Without experience all he has is raw power, but to be fair he hasn’t come across anyone that can stop him. For right now everyone else is lucky that he hasn’t figured out that there are very few things that can kill him. Otherwise everything but the Predacons will be facing extinction.

    Melee: His claws are the sharpest of them all. He can cut through virtually anything. Like his toy he has the sword made from his tail. It’s the most powerful weapon that doesn’t belong to one of the 13. What his claws can’t cut can be turned into sushi thanks to that blade.

    Guns: He has those Energon crossbow weapons from his toy. He also has that primitive fire cannon from Prime. Here we call it the Dragon Cannon. A fully charged shot fires an explosive combustion shot that can tear up the strongest of steels like they’re made of napkins.

    Powers and Abilities: Predaking is the most powerful character in this series so far that isn’t Unicron related or one of the 13. In his robot form he’s equal to his comrades, the Dinobots, and Motormaster combined. In his dragon form his strength is upgraded to all that plus Superion, Devastator, and Menasor. As a dragon he can of course breath fire.

    Voice used: Well there’s only one of him.

    Darksteel: Even though he only appeared briefly I just loved this character. Seriously you can read this guy the phonebook and he’d still think it’s funny, That’s just how Darksteel views the world. Everything is just a joke because everyone else is just so weak, especially those Autobots. He thinks those guys are the most pathetic creatures he’s ever laid eyes on. Of the trio he’s the sadistic one of the bunch. He ain’t too bright either, but he does make up for it with his dedication. Darksteel is the weakest of the trio, but even then that’s more powerful than most characters so far. He’s about as tough as Snarl, Swoop, and Slag combined in either form. He’s the fastest of the bunch, so hitting him is difficult despite being larger than most people. He has a rivalry with his fellow Predacon Razorclaw. The two constantly bicker and get in each other's way, and Predaking has to pick up the mess. Regardless of what others think he’s still dangerous to anyone in his way.

    Melee: Darksteel dual wields with a sickle formed from his left wing in his left hand and a Predacon bone he uses as a club. The bone was a deformity in his shoulder that Predaking painfully tore off. The bone is harder than Black Energon.

    Powers: He can’t breath fire as his demon bird dragon form, but he can spew out lava. Just in case you didn’t know that burns a lot.

    Voice used: Again there’s only one of him.

    Razorclaw: Razorclaw is Prime Skylynx but I had to rename him since the real Skylynx is making an appearance. Razorclaw has a very dark perception of the world. To him everyone else is just weak or cowardly. Even though he’s leagues smarter than Darksteel he doesn’t seem to understand just how powerful he and his friends truly are.Razorclaw is the one that attempts to reason with his leader, but it rarely works. For the time he’ll just grumble about the world’s incompetence and just do what his all powerful leader says. In terms of strength he’s about as Swoop, Grimlock, and Sludge combined in either form.

    Melee: A halberd that comes from the outer spine of his dragon form.

    Powers: Instead of fire or lava it’s an intense heat beam that can melt through most metals.

    Voice used: There’s only one of this guy too.
