your enemy, crush him under your feet."
Sludge likes to make his presence known. A few steps of
his incredibly lumbering legs and everyone within a
three-mile radius can hear - and feel - that he's around.
But his awesome physical appearance belies his unusually
gentle and shy nature. Like his fellow Dinobot, Slag, he is not happy with the
leadership of Optimus Prime. He feels, however, the Autobot
cause is more important than any personal misgivings and
so he rarely exhibits his feelings. Such is not the case
when Sludge is fired to battle - he then becomes a
terrifying, unstoppable force.
In Dinobot mode, Sludge can exert pressure up to 40,000
pounds per square inch with a single step, enough force
to shatter a bridge or even crack a mountain. Only a
handful of his comrades can match his immense strength
and endurance. His armored hide can withstand all but the
most powerful blasts. He's adept at operating in watery
and swampy environments and in jungles.
Sludge is often victim to the calamities he causes. Often
his fellow Autobots must dig him out of the rubble he's
brought down upon himself. Perhaps if he were more clever
he'd figure out ways to avoid these predicaments. He's
very slow due to his huge bulk.
