Transformers Beast Wars B'Boom
Function: Guerrilla warfare specialist
Motto: Show me the wall… I’ll bang my head against it.
Alt mode: Mandrill (Mandrillus sphinx)
Weapon: Pulse missiles
Profile: B'Boom is sheer fury unleashed. He has trouble containing himself when there are battles to be won. Ferocious in battle, but when he gets that savage fire in his eyes, look out. Like an explosion, he launches into battle with an unmatched fury. He is very unpredictable, but the other Maximals feel safe with him around. He is a good friend to all Maximals, but untrusting of outsiders. He is protective of his Maximal friends. He looks out for their well-being, especially taking care of the smaller or less experienced Maximals. Strong willed, he will speak his mind to commander or subordinate alike. B'Boom is unwavering under pressure, he could be a one-bot army or command a small team of soldiers. He is focused in battle, yet extremely clever. He may either outmuscle or outwit his opponents in battle. Many unsuspecting Predacons have felt the incredible wrath that comes with standing in the way of his objective.
Abilities: His launcher deploys pulse missiles that don't burn when they detonate. He is able to use the wilderness as a weapon, speeding up and down the trees, not allowing the Predacons even a glimpse of their attacker. He possesses a mega artillery attack mode, similar to a battlefield emplacement.
Weaknesses: Because of his ferocity, B'Boom is very difficult for his commanders to control. He may rush into battle ahead of his teammates, against orders. But considering the upside of his ferocity, his commanders may not mind at all.
Character bio from package tech spec:
A guerrilla warfare tactical expert, B'Boom is one of the fiercest and most unpredictable of the Maximals. Though hard to control and often driven by a temporary fury that sends him speeding up and down trees, his focus while in battle is easily apparent by the savage fire in his eyes. Dexterous, brave and clever, B'Boom is fiercest while in mega artillary attack mode, a state in which his arsenal is as fully loaded and functional as a battle empalacement. His favorite weapon, a launcher hidden within his mouth deploys pulse missiles that detonate but do not burn leaving his best weapon the wilderness, unharmed.
