An unhappy loner of few words and fewer opinions, Snarl only finds joy in the heat of battle. He hates his Dinobot form and longs to return to Cybertron. His tail can shatter 20 foot cubes of concrete and his armored hide resists most missiles, but he is vulnerable to nighttime attacks because he gets his strength from the sun.
