Transformers Generation 1 Blot (Terrorcon)
Function: Foot Soldier
Motto: I’m not as bad as I look – I’m worse.
Profile: If there is one thing all Autobots and Decepticons agree upon, it is this –Blot is the most disgusting of all Transformers. Wherever he goes, he leaves a trail of foul-smelling lubricant, which is usually oozing out of several joints at any given moment. Many of his fellow Decepticons were just a s happy to see him leave Cybertron and take his foul odor with him as were the Autobtos. Not surprisingly, Blot has a severe inferiority complex and is socially inept. He knows he is an object of scorn and ridicule, but is incapable of effectively talking back to his tormentors. He is dumb and brutish, but extremely loyal – a quality not lost upon Terrorcon leader Hun-Grrr: “I wish I had more warriors who smell as bad and follow orders as good as Blot.
Abilities: In creature mode Blot’s claws allow him to climb any wall. He can exhale small clouds of searing flame. In both robot and creature modes, he uses a slime gun, which shoots an awful-smelling and irritating stream of corrosive liquid. Its catalytic base reacts with most metals to make them as soft and pliable as rubber. He combines with his fellow Terrorcons form the giant robot, Abominus. However, the other Terrorcons are reluctant, at best, to accept Blot into the configuration since he smells so bad.
Weaknesses: Blot’s poor personal hygiene has several negative side effects. His distinctive odor often acts like a beacon in its ability to attract unwanted visitors –such as enemy Autobots. Constant fluid leaks often lead to a variety of mechanical malfunctions. Sometimes Blot’s joints lock in place, other times his engine drivers overheat.
