Decepticon Sixshot
Function: Solo Transformer Assault Group
Motto: "Life is worth living as long as there are enemies worth destroying."
A vile, nasty murderous sort who carries out his job with ferocious intensity. Only redeeming quality is he speaks well of those he's sent to "the great junkyard in the sky," his phrase for destruction. Has 6 forms: robot, armoured carrier (with twin laser batteries), ramming-tank (with infra-red rangefinder and target tracker), jet-propelled laser pistol, star fighter (maximum speed: 80,000 mph; range: 8 million miles), and wolf-creature modes. Only the wolf creature has no need for Sixshot's 2 hypersonic concussion blasters, the wolf mode prefers to rip apart enemy Autobots with his razor fangs.

Darkmount / Straxus (Generations, 2010)

Few robots achieve the same legendary status as Megatron, but Darkmount is one. He is just as famous on Cybertron as the impenetrable fortress that bears his name. For there, he ruled his small corner of the machine world with an iron fist, controlling his subjects with an equal measure of fear and pain. So terrible was his rule that even Megatron gave him a wide berth, and treated him with the respect due to an equal.
