Buzzclaw is one of the few remaining members of the ancient Insecticon
clan, a group of powerful Transformer warriors dating back to the
beginnings of the Great Wars. He is brash, loud and obnoxious. However,
he is also dedicated to helping Deathsaurus bring the Decepticon
Empire back as a major power in the galaxy. He sees this as an opportunity
to practice his own brand of brutality on the population of planets
everywhere. His past as a warrior in the gladatorial pits of Polyhex
have afforded him skill and preference for hand-to-hand combat.
He relishes the feeling of an enemy's body going limp at death in
his hands or claws.
Abilities: Buzzclaw is trained in
various forms of hand-to-hand combat and has spent eons using those
skills in battle. His insectoid beast form allows him to use his
skills in both modes, each allowing him to utilize different weapons.
As a beast, he can use his claws and mandibles to tear enemies apart.
In robot mode he uses his wrist mounted claws and shield in combat.
Like all Insecticons, he has an innate ability to create clones
out of himself from existing raw materials in his immediate vicinity,
however the ability has become diluted over time as he has changed
his exo-structures. It is this ability that Deathsaurus hopes to
unlock from his genetic code.
Weakness: Buzzclaw's over-reliance
on hand-to-hand combat makes him vulnerable in situations requiring
more artilery-based solutions.
