Function: Jungle Warrior, Demolitions
First Comic Appearance: Transformers #4
"Stomp your enemy, crush him under your feet."
Profile: Sludge likes to make his presence known. A few steps of his incredibly lumbering legs and everyone within a three-mile radius can hear -and feel- that he's around. But his awesome physical appearance belies his unusually gentle and shy nature. Like his fellow Dinobot, Slag, he is not happy with the leadership of Optimus Prime. He feels, however, the Autobot cause is more important than any personal misgivings and so he rarely exhibits his feelings. Such is not the case when Sludge is fired to battle- he then becomes a terrifying, unstoppable force.
Abilities: In Dinobot mode, Sludge can exert pressure up to 40,000 pounds per square inch with a single step, enough force to shatter a bridge or even crack a mountain. Only a handful of his comrades can match his immense strength and endurance. His armored hide can withstand all but the most powerful blasts. He's adept at operating in watery and swampy environments and in jungles.
Weaknesses: Sludge is often victim to the calamities he causes. Often his fellow Autobots must dig him out of the rubble he's brought down upon himself. Perhaps if he were more clever he'd figure out ways to avoid these predicaments. He's very slow due to his huge bulk.
