Profile: Battletrap can best be described as playful - in the same sense that a cat is playful with a mouse that it's caught before the cat moves in for the kill. If his two components were humans they'd very likely be a wrestling tag-team. He likes to trap an adversary between his jeep and helicopter components and have "fun" with him- knock him back and forth a bit - before finally ripping him to pieces. He's cheerful and good-natured- no doubt because he enjoys his work so much.
Underneath the good nature side is a jealousy of the triple changers Astrotrain and Blitzwing. Battletrap found out from Shockwave that he and his fellow Duocon Flywheels were a failed attempt at creating triple changers. On the outside he tells them the Duocons are far superior to any triple changer because they can attack into two separate alt modes instead of one.
Abilities: Battletrap can divide his robot into two separate and autonomous vehicle modes - jeep and helicopter. The two vehicles have identical personalities and can recombine into robot mode in 1.6 seconds. The jeep has a maximum speed of 90 mph and a range of 600 miles. In robot and jeep modes, Battletrap uses a double-barreled, wire-guided assault missile launcher with infra-red imaging for night-firing capabilities. The helicopter has a maximum speed of 780 mph and a range of 1200 miles. It is packed with electronic detection, jamming and communication equipment.
Weaknesses: Battletrap has good strength in robot mode, but sacrifices much of this for mobility when he divides into his two vehicle modes. Neither vehicle is especially rugged or weapons-fire-resistant. His two components can't be more then ten miles apart before the connection between the two become strained and they start malfunctioning. This is due to the linkage of the brain module(s), spark, and transformer cog(s).
