Twin Twist

Written by admin on October 11, 2007 | Characters |

ALLEGIANCE: AUTOBOT
FUNCTION: DEMOLITIONS

FIRST APPEARANCE:

“War is wherever I want it to be.”

Profile: Nothing is more exhilarating to Twin Twist than the feeling
of sinking his drills into a slag of unblemished carbon-steel. Like a child
in a wading pool, he splashes among the shards of useless metal that result
from his destructive fury. And his habit of showing off his talents to almost
any target, whether an enemy Decepticon or a harmless lamp post, causes extreme
concern for Autobot Leader Optimus Prime. Optimus realizes that the wrecking
of property belonging to innocent Earthlings can only hurt the Autobot cause.
Twin Twist’s wild, uncontrollable nature is a big plus in battle, but many of
his fellow Autobots think he’s more trouble than he’s worth.

Abilities: Nearly as mobile as his brother Topspin, Twin Twist can go
up to 200 mph using his four wheels and his two tractor modules in vehicle mode.
He’ll usually follow Topspin’s initial assault on a target with his own: he
uses his two diamond-tipped drills, which can go as fast as 6000 rpm, to penetrate
virtually any fortification up to three yards thick. He carries a semi-automatic
cannon-rifle that fires explosive shells, each with the energy equivalent of
100 pounds of TNT. He can transform from vehicle to robot mode in .4 seconds,
but can only use his drills in vehicle mode.

Weaknesses: His reckless nature often gets him into trouble, and has
even led Optimus to consider making him inoperative. He is at a relative disadvantage
in robot mode without the use of his drills.
