Awesome and terrifying, Devastator is the bizarre result
of the six Constructicons - Scrapper, Scavenger, Bonecrusher, Hook, Long Haul and Mixmaster - joining together to form a single giant
robot. He is ungainly and plodding, but he is also
brutality in its purest form - a mechanical being whose
sole purpose is to crush and destroy all that stands in
its path. Devastator's mind is truly unique and his own,
a melding together of his six components, but it also
represents a compromise: his thoughts are limited to what
the six can agree upon. The carrying out of any complex
thoughts is severely impeded by their competing minds.
Thus, Devastator is seemingly a creature of almost pure
instinct - usually he acts before he can fully
contemplate the consequences of his actions. These
actions are usually simple, direct and extremely violent.
Devastator has many of the abilities of his component
parts, but is somewhat limited in their use by his
limited mental functions and awkward form. He is over 60
feet tall and has incredible strength - he can knock down
a bridge with one punch. His solar energy rifle shoots a
10,000 degree centigrade heat beam a distance of six
Devastator is slow and awkward, and is relatively easy to
trip up. The inability of his six component parts to
better cooperate inhibits his mental functions, allowing
him to be easily outfoxed by most opponents.
