as bad as I look - I'm worse."
If there is one thing all Autobots and Decepticons agree
upon, it is this - Blot is the most disgusting of all the
Transformers. Wherever he goes, he leaves a trail of
foul-smelling lubricant, which is usually oozing out of
several joints at any given moment. Many of his fellow
Decepticons were just as happy to see him leave Cybertron
and take his foul odor with him, as were the Autobots.
Not surprisingly, Blot has a severe inferiority complex
and is socially inept. He knows he is an object of scorn
and ridicule, but is incapable of effectively talking
back to his tormentors. He is dumb and brutish, but
extremely loyal - a quality not lost upon Terrorcon
leader Hun-Grrr: "I wish I had more warriors who
smell as bad and follow orders as good as Blot."
In creature mode, Blot's claws allow him to climb any
wall. He exhales small clouds of searing flame. In both
robot and creature modes, he uses a slime gun, which
shoots an awful-smelling and irritating stream of
corrosive liquid. Its catalytic base reacts with most
metals to make them as soft and pliable as rubber. He
combines with his fellow Terrorcons to form the giant
robot, Abominus. However, the other Terrorcons are
reluctant, at best, to accept Blot into the configuration
since he smells so bad.
Blot's poor personal hygiene has several negative side
effects. His distinctive odor often acts like a beacon in
its ability to attract unwanted visitors - such as enemy
Autobots. Constant fluid leaks often lead to a variety of
mechanical functions: sometimes Blot's joints lock in
place, other times his engine overheats.
