Profile: Powerful, ruthless and eager to take on any mission no matter how morally ambigious as long as he gets to express his violent tendencies - Skullcruncher could be a model Decepticon soldier were it not for his unnerving habits that irritate and frighten even other Decepticons. Although nervous habits tend to crop up in a tense environment like war, Skullcruncher’s are perhaps the most irritating. When in his beast mode, he has a tendency to unknowingly grind his teeth together in anticipation of combat, producing a high-pitched screeching noise that sets most Transformers’ entire neural clusters on edge. Although it does occasionally terrify Autobot targets, it also lets them know that Skullcruncher is nearby, making sneak attacks almost impossible. Decepticons avoid partnering up with him, and the try to keep him in robot mode if they’re forced to. His other battlefield habit is a conscious and even more disturbing one. Despite his claims that they “taste terrible,” Skullcruncher likes to consume his foes when in beast mode. He’ll damage them enough so they can’t escape and then chews them into tiny bits before swallowing them. For a race that doesn’t require the consumption of living creatures for sustenance, Skullcruncher’s acts are particularly grisly but allow him a longer operation range and time than most other Transformers.
Abilities: Subject has incredible strength and endurance. He is covered with thick, reinforced armor plating that makes him extremely resistant to physical attacks. In robot mode he wields a serrated sword and tissue demolecularization gun that makes metal surfaces brittle and weak. In beast mode his sharp fangs can tear through most armor plating. He prefers to devour his victims after hitting them with a blast from his gun, making them easier to consume. Once inside him, a unique “digestive” system breaks them down into their component parts. The more Skullcruncher eats, the faster he can regenerate battle damage.
Weaknesses: Subject is slow. His physical attacks are powerful, but they are slow and awkward, particularly in beast mode.
