Transformers Generation 1 Doublecross (Monsterbot)
Function: Supply Procurer
Motto: “Decepticon destruction is my favorite sport... and mine too!”
Profile: Doublecross is among strangest Transformers you’ll ever meet. To have a conversation with him you’d think you were talking with an unhappily married couple bickering back and forth. Because that is exactly what he is! Doublecross, has a split personality, but unlike his Autobot brother Punch, the two personalities contained within this monstrosity are very well aware of one another. Every decision, every task or activity must be debated between them. And the two sparks contained within each of the two heads of his dragon modes rarely agree. But one thing they do share is a common hatred of Decepticons and when it comes to battle, there’s rarely any argument about what to do next –take the enemy down and out! However, his superiors have a difficult time getting his cooperation when the battle is over and the smoke clears. Rodimus Prime once sent him to the Web World for a psychological treatment, only to have him returned with the diagnosis that the two personalities are perfectly healthy and normal, robotically speaking, it’s just that they never agree!
Abilities: Doublecross is a vicious opponent, ferocious and savage. His typical attack usually begins by startling his enemy in monster mode then converting to his robot form and blasting the terrified enemy with his rust-ray rifle. His weapon has the ability to instantly corrode the joints and armor plating of enemy Decepticons, a great help to his other attack -a slashing and two fisted attack ripping and tearing at his victims with titanium-reinforced razor sharp teeth. In his two-headed dragon mode, Doublecross can fly great distances at a maximum of 80 mph with the use of rear-mounted wings.
Weaknesses: Doublecross is not terribly strong, in fact he is quite weak, but his terrifying beast mode and super-corrosive rifle usually are enough to compensate. His biggest problems are created when action is needed and he fails to act quickly enough due to him bickering with himself!
