Transformers Generation 1 Rodimus Prime
Function: Protector and Autobot Leader
Motto: Experience is the benchmark of maturity.
Alt mode: Truck
Profile: Rodimus Prime is the mature, transformed persona of Hot Rod. This transformation and simultaneous assumption of the Autobot leadership occurred in Transformers: The Movie, battling both the might of the Decepticons, Galvatron and even UNICRON himself. It is as Rodimus Prime that Hot Rod defeated Unicron and restored order to the galaxy. Rodimus Prime speaks with the savvy of a seasoned veteran. He can be hot-headed at times and he has a tendency to act first and ask questions later. But as the new heir to the Autobot Matrix of Leadership, Rodimus Prime takes his new responsibilities as Autobot Leader very seriously.
Abilities: He possesses acute military prowess. Rodimus Prime is an expert tactician with exceptional maneuverability in battle. In robot mode, he carries a photon eliminator that shoots high voltage electricity. Range: 500 miles, Speed 200 mph.
Weaknesses: As Rodimus would put it, "Having to 'live-up to the legend and the best leader in Autobot history, like Optimus Prime is a difficult burden to bear." Rodimus leadership abilities are exceptional, but he often lacks the confidence and assuredness to put his abilities to the best possible use, questioning and perhaps over-analysing his vision of the Autobt cause. In time he hones his skills and starts to believe in himself more and more. Other than that, his only weakness is his compassion for other living creatures.
