Scowl (Pretender Monster):

Profile, Abilities and Weaknesses description is from The Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye, comic series published by Dreamwave Comics in 2003.

Scowl became a Pretender when he realized that his Autobot foes weren't scared by his appearance in the slightest. Previous to this, his alternate mode was more likely to inspire laughter than terror, which enraged the merciless and cruel Decepticon. Now that he hears his victims screaming in fear instead of chuckling, Scowl is an even more competent fighting machine. He primarily focuses on using the power of sound waves to disrupt electronic equipment and, at more powerful decibel ranges, physical objects. His fellow Decepticons wish he wouldn't spend so much time in his shell; its powerful speakers only serve to magnify Scowl's already loud, firm voice.

Subject has above-average strength and intelligence, and exceptional endurance and resistance to damage. His outer Pretender shell is equipped with speakers in its mouth and can produce a variety of sonic attacks, including a wail that can rip the armor right off a Transformer's exoskeleton. The inner robot has chest-mounted speakers and ultrasonic hearing, allowing him to pinpoint the exact nature and location of even the dimmest sounds at a great distance. His sonic disruptor rifle can cause a target to either perceive damaging, over-amplified sound or total silence. Combines with fellow Pretender Monsters to form Monstructor.

Subject's hearing is diminished slightly in outer shell.
