no Autobot uncrushed."
A clanking, crushing terror that destroys all in his
path, Menasor is the ultimate Decepticon weapon - or, in
theory at least, should be. For underneath his
thick-plated hide is a mind wracked by indecision and
conflict. All his actions are the hard-fought results of
this ongoing internal struggle. Menasor is designed to
mesh the thoughts of his five Stunticon components - Motormaster, Dead End, Breakdown, Drag Strip, and Wildrider - into one single-minded destruction
machine. But Motormaster is so thoroughly loathed by the
other four that a mental rift develops within Menasor,
giving him a violently unstable personality. Although he
strives to perform his lethal duties, Menasor is
sometimes too confused to do anything but haphazardly
lash out at anything near him. At these times his hands
reach for his head as he strains to clear his thoughts.
Like a child throwing a tantrum, he is at his most
uncontrollable in this state - and also his most
Menasor has tremendous strength - he can punch with a
force of 140 tons. His armor is nearly impervious to all
but the most powerful artillery. He uses Motormaster's cyclone gun to blow through
Autobot barriers and carries a silver sword to slice
through whatever's left.
Menasor's split personality is often a severe handicap to
his successful operation. His lumbering, slow gait makes
him an easy target - but he's still a tough nut to crack.
