Profile, Abilities and Weaknesses description is from The Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye, comic series published by Dreamwave Comics in 2003.
Bio: Bugly's tactics are meticulous and exact. He takes great pleasure in performing his function because it allows him to manipulate others through his battle plans. Bugly is exploitative and cruel, and most wither beneath his intense stare. Highly disciplined, he spends his free time practicing martial arts. Bugly believes that all Transformer life energy is linked and that intense self-control allows one to dominate others. His elitist, mystical mentality alienates him from other Decepticons.
Weapons & Abilities: Subject is a practitioner of Circuit-Su. His outer Pretender shell possesses flight abilities, and can be remote-controlled. Armed with two electro-stingers that paralyze on contact. Segmented optic sensors on the shell allow Bugly to track and process hundreds of individual pieces of visual information, which he uses to constantly update his battlefield strategies. Inner robot transforms into a hover-jet armed with two photon cannons that are used by his shell and robot modes.
Weaknesses: Bugly's elitist attitude causes him to overestimate his abilities and reduces his comrades' willingness to assist him during high-risk situations.
