Profile: Gutcruncher is a rarity among the Decepticon forces. While he shares their goal of the total destruction of the Autobots, Gutcruncher was not a member of the Decepticon military, and had for centuries operated a business partnership with Megatron under a mutually beneficial contract. Following the formation of the Decepticon Secret Service, Gutcruncher was conscripted into the Decepticons' intelligence agency and put in charge of supplying covert military operations. Gutcruncher greatly resents Megatron reneging on their deal and his new subordinate position to Banzai-Tron, but remains as competent at providing supplies as ever. Though he favors aerial combat, Gutcruncher was forced to obtain a land based vehicle mode for operations on Earth.
Abilities: Gutcruncher is a well known capitalist, with an extensive list of contacts throughout the galaxy. His ability to effortlessly supply the Decepticon military with munitions, artificial energy provisions, and spare parts is second only to the legendary Swindle, and no Decepticon is better able to salvage usable components from his deceased comrades. Gutcruncher possesses significant engineering skill and his recent change in alt mode and modifications to his frame have made him very durable in battle.
Weaknesses: Gutcruncher greatly resents his new subordinate position in the Decepticon Secret Service, and has difficulty working with teammates, preferring to operate independently. Despite frequent trips to combat zones, Gutcruncher is only an average combatant himself, and thus tends to complete objectives quickly, occasionally leaving Autobot witnesses to the Secret Service's activities.
