Profile: Mindwipe is perhaps the most mysterious and arguably the most mystical of all the Decepticons. Though a talented warrior, he is not one to stand and fight. He would rather subvert his opponents’ will or strike from the shadows. He serves the warlord Scoponok in the Research and Development department. He is often employed to procure Empties and Autobot prisoners for experimentation, a task for which his hypnotic powers make him ideally suited.

When not performing his duties as a Decepticon warrior, he devotes his time to trying to establish contact with the electromagnetic essences of long-dead Decepticons. He hopes that by communicating with them he can learn from them and avoid making the same mistakes they did when they fought and were eventually defeated by the Autobots. So far, despite designing and constructing numerous receivers, antennas and other equipment, his labors have borne only limited success. He swears he can hear the cries of the dead in the garbled noise emanating from his machines, and that he is very close to “Learning the Secrets of Death.” Most simply think he is insane. Scorponok tolerates his eccentricities because he is a subtle agent and a capable lab assistant.

Abilities: In shrikebat mode Mindwipe can fly at a maximum speed of 700 miles per hour and has a range of 1200 miles.

He is an extremely skilled fighter; Mindwipe developed his skills while studying ancient mystical arts. He has great strength in both forms, and his shrikebat jaws and foot talons can tear standard armor to ribbons with ease. His eyes emit a sub-optic radiation that, although invisible, has the effect of overriding the self-will circuitry of almost any mechanical or organic being that is unfortunate enough to look into them. In other words, he has the power to hypnotize Transformers. In robot mode, he uses a viper pistol, which shoots a stream of liquid that overloads the pain receptors of any mechanical being it hits, essentially freezing the affected body part for up to 30 agonizing minutes.

Weaknesses: -In his attempts to contact departed Decepticons, Mindwipe often becomes so involved in his self-induced trance-like states that he is unaware of anything else. This leaves him extremely open to enemy attack.

-Mindwipe’s armor is not as thick as that of most close-combat specialists. This is not a serious issue with his preferred methods, but if forced to fight openly he is often among the first reduced to stasis lock.

-His strange habits are tolerated because of his powerful patron, Scorponok. Should he displease his commander, suspension of his experiments may be the least of his worries.
