Marvel's Transformers Universe Profile

Profile: Trypticon doesn't stop blastin away until he's wading hip-deep in smoking rubble. He's the most efficient, lethal fighting machine yet devised by the Decepticons. He is completely without mercy or remorse. The only emotion that he is programmed to display is hatred. He hates everyone and everything. This feeling is always present; it only varies in intensity. He restrains his loathing for his fellow Decepticons enough to be minimally cooperative, but his hatred for Autobots knows no bounds. Humans do not inspire such strong feelings in him; he considers them barely worthy of his attention. But he also thinks they get in the way too much. Without blinking an optical module; he would level an entire city just to get a clear shot at an Autobot. He is supremely confident in his abilities, but unsure of the Decepticons' goals. Although he believes he will one day rule the Decepticons, he has so little use for anyone else that this prospect barely has any appeal to him. Trypticon makes no attempt to hide his feelings... except to himself. He can't admit to himself that his hatred for others is a mask for his own self-Ioathing. He'd rather be doing anything other than what he does. He secretly finds warfare boring and pointless. But he accepts the fact that fate has forced him into this role of the ultimate warrior... and nobody does it better!
Abilities: In dinosaur mode, Trypticon has incredible strength and is virtually impervious to attack. A rocket backpack allows him to jump a distance of 20 miles. He can shoot heat-seeking plasma bombs from his mouth and he carries a particle beam cannon within his sinus cavity. His optical sensors shoot high frequency hypno-beams. When locked on to the eyes of another Transformer, these beams carry powerful electromagnetic currents that can override their target's own mental processes, allowing Trypticon to control that Transformer. If the intended victim is strong-willed enough or manages to turn away from Trypticon's gaze quickly enough, he can avoid this fate. In city mode, Trypticon opens up to reveal landing and repair bays and a communication center that includes antennae for local and interspace transmissions. An anti-gravity repulsor disk at each end prevents anyone from approaching closer than 1,000 feet unless Trypticon so chooses. Rotating scanners on top of his assembly can blast a hole through a city block of bvildings. In mobile battle station mode, Trypticon is perhaps at his most dangerous. He has a range of 8,000 miles and can attain a speed of 800 mph. In addition, he has a flashing laser cannon, rotating blasters, destructo beams, and dual photon launchers.
Weaknesses: Trypticon has no known weaknesses.
