Profile: Cyclonus radiates might and confidence. Although he is intelligent and powerful, he doesn’t use his abilities to attain political advancement like some lesser Decepticons. He is a cold, consummate professional who harbors deep seated contempt for those who would undermine the Decepticon cause and goals for the sake of personal advancement. Cyclonus know that his formidable powers would allow him to rule over the Decepticons if he wished; instead, he places his faith and loyalty in his cause, and, moreover, his commander. He is a harsh but fair lieutenant who has earned the respect of his troops as well as the disdain of those who seek to overthrow Megatron. They know anyone seeking command for himself would have to face the merciless Cyclonus first, and that’s a risk few are willing to take. To that end, Megatron knows that wherever Cyclonus is sent, he is sending a loyal extension of himself.
Cyclonus was created as part of the same project as Scourge and Sixshot. He was designed as an advanced vision of the standard aerial combatant that had dominated the skies of Cybertron for generations, with heightened speed, strength and dexterity. It is obvious to most that Cyclonus was built as a challenge to Starscream. His capabilities and fierce loyalty to Megatron seem to put the two Decepticons on a collision course.
Abilities: Cyclonus is one of the most physically powerful Transformers in existence, as well as being highly intelligent. In his jet mode, he can reach speeds of Mach 5 in the atmosphere. He is capable of reaching escape velocity and traveling between planets in a standard solar system. He is armed with two side mounted lasers and an incendiary bomb rack. In robot mode, he wields an oxidating laser that fuses its targets’ internal mechanisms.
Weaknesses: Cyclonus exhibits no known physical weaknesses.
