Profile: Whether engaged in raging battle or friendly conversation, seldom is Smokescreen up to what he appears to be up to.  More likely, an ulterior purpose exists.  In combat, his job is to lead the enemy astray, to prevent him from discovering the true nature of an Autobot strategy until it is too late for the enemy to counter it.  It is a job he performs with great proficiency.  His duplicity carries over to his personal affairs as well.   Charming and affable, it is easy for Smokescreen to use his genuine camaraderie with his fellow Autobots in order to root out their deepest concerns.  And, at Optimus Prime's request, that is exactly what Smokescreen does, because Optimus feels that his role as Autobot leader creates a personal barrier between himself and his followers that he cannot overcome alone.  Strangely enough, in Optimus' eyes, the most devious of the Autobots is also the most trusted.

Abilities: In car mode, Smokescreen can emit from his tailpipe a thick, black cloud of smoke that has the additional property of gravitating toward metallic objects, such as enemy Decepticons.   In robot mode his twin shoulder mounted launchers shoot missiles that shatter into thousands of shards that produce a variety of radio signals, magnetic fields and infrared waves, wreaking havoc on the radar and guidance systems of enemy aircraft.  His disrupter rifle shoots a web of electrical energy that can short out and interfere with the proper operation of any electrically powered target.

Weakness: With proper shielding, an opponent can successfully withstand many of Smokescreen's weapons, usually leaving him in a relatively weak position since he's not that powerful on his own.
