Series: Beast Wars II
Faction: Maximal Subgroup: Basic Beasts
Fastest in the water of the Cybertrons, Scuba grasps his enemies in his tentacles, drains their energy with his suckers, then delivers the final blow with his sharp fangs. A shy type, given the choice, he prefers to be alone, and he is quick to see the down side of things. Somehow, he is gifted with great penmanship, and is asked to write love letters, battle challenges and so on. "I said I wouldn't do it, so forget it!" he usually responds.

Profile: Scuba is the loner of the team. He prefers to operate by himself and usually works best that way. He fights like a ninja, disappearing and reappearing as he pleases. Scuba dedicates a great deal of his free time to the art of writing and is considered the best poet of the group, though he rarely speaks of his talent. He also enjoys reading whenever possible and finds it relaxing and a good alternative to the noise and aggravations hanging out with the other Maximals would provide. The Seacon named Scylla is very taken with him and pursues him whenever she can. This annoys Scuba a great deal.
Abilities: What Scuba lacks in people skills he makes up for in strength. He is one of the most skilled warriors on the team and few doubt his power. In beast mode he becomes a giant squid and with his tentacles he can grasp a Predacon and suck them dry of energy. Scuba also uses an attack called the "Surumarang". With this attack he hurls spinning strips of his tentacle at an enemy that are strong enough to crush the toughest armors. He is also very knowledgeable of the underground waterways on planet Gaea. He can travel through these pathways with great speed and stealth only to tunnel up into the battlefield creating a geyser, catching his enemies off guard and giving him the advantage.
Weaknesses: Scuba rarely talks with his fellow Maximals. Some of them wonder if he even knows their names. This keeps him from making any emotional bonds with his teammates. Also, the irritating advances of Scylla occasionally cause him to lose his cool.[ Back To Top ]
