Sideswipe w/ Nightbeat:
Bio: [From the Troop Assessments of Optimus Prime, Autobot Leader]
Weapons and Abilities: I fully expect Side Swipe's skill set to grow with time, but for now he only has average strength and intelligence. His speed and endurance are respectable, as is his courage. With more training, I feel confident that he'll become an even greater warrior, but for now...
Weaknesses: Side Swipe's still very green, which makes him a liability on the battlefield. I just hope that assigning Hot Shot to tutor him doesn't turn into the blind leading the blind!
First Comic Appearance: Dreamwave TF: Armada #18
Bio: Nightbeat knows that he's small, even for a Mini-Con, but that doesn't stop him from trying to perform feats of bravery befitting much larger and more powerful warriors. In his own innocent way, Nightbeat leads Side Swipe into even more trouble by egging him on to try increasingly daring acts to impress their superiors. Prodded by the insistent Nightbeat, Side Swipe has landed himself in a series of embarrassing and often dangerous situations. Nightbeat can't help it-the ambitious, good-natUred Mini-Con wants to be as much of a hero as the biggest Autobots, and he's willing to take any risk to achieve that goal. Side Swipe really identifies with his Mini-Con's need for approval and acceptance, and the two have gotten into more trouble together than any other Autobot recruits in recent memory. Their well-meaning but irritating antics have even led Optimus Prime to consider separating the duo, much to their dismay.
Weapons and Abilities: Subject possesses below-average strength, speed, and endurance. Despite his meager physical attributes, his courage and creativity in the face of danger are boundless.
Weaknesses: Subject is also limited by his arm configuration, which makes it impossible for him to grasp objects or perform actions requiring delicate - motor functions.
