MISERY OF THE FLYING SHARK – Sky Byte/Gel Shark Profile

Jaws Torpedo Attack.jpg

NAME: Sky-Byte / Gel Shark

FACTION: Decepticons / Destrons

QUOTE: “I’ve been crushed flat, body and spirit”


Gel Shark is a Destron loyal to Megatron who is always seeking to advance his rank. It’s not his fault that most of his well intentioned plans go to pieces due to his own incompetence.

Accidentally helping out the Autobots/Cybertrons from time to time and his sympathies to humans make him a conflicted character.

Gel-Sharks’s sense of duty is to the Destrons, but his nature is that of a whimsical Haiku spouting protector and nature lover. He’s also a flying shark. And destined to be the butt of everyone’s jokes.

Gel Shark really just wants to be appreciated and advance his rank the Destrons… or at the very least not get fired. Black Convoy is his main competitor for Megatron’s / Gigatron ‘sNumber Two, and unlike Gel-Shark Black Convoy’s plans usually succeed.

Gel-Shark is timid and incompetent, but now and then he stumbles upon a good idea. More talented at impromptu haiku poetry and saving human lives than mass destruction or combat, Gel-Shark’s choice of career seems dubious.


Quirky, odd, lovable, mischievous, whimsical and a bit a of wastrel. Always the butt of jokes and misfortune in the show, his bad luck seemingly never ends. Despite all these qualities, Gel Shark keeps trying to win favour with the Destrons, his persistence is admirable he best to be good at being bad.

Like Smithers or Starscream, he’s a sniveling under-confident toady who can find no fault in his superiors even when they are clearly to blame for at least some of his never ending misfortune.

Gel-Shark somehow keeps a positive cheerful attitude, even when his co-workers basically can’t stand him and his loyal friends are equally as useless as he is in combat.

Despite these qualities, Gel-Shark possesses the whimsy of an artist, he’s better suited to appreciating life and the beauty of mother nature through impromptu songs and Haiku’s than the ways of war. But he does his best for the cause, even if it means disguising himself as a race car, or pretending to be Optimus Prime/ Fire Convoy should the need arise.

SHOCKWAVE PROFILE -Resistance is Futile

all_hail_shockwave_by_pinkuh deviantart S.jpg


NAME: Shockwave

FACTION: Decepticons

QUOTE: “Logic dictates that I Shockwave… am Superior to all forms of life”

Cold, calculating, ruthless, logical.

More concerned with conquering the galaxy than any single planet, Shockwave plays the long game, his machinations taking a millenia to reach fruition, while comrades are none the wiser to his duplicitous nature.

If there is any Decepticon with both the strength and determination of Starscream to rule, and the brains and loyatly to the Decepticon cause of Soundwave, then Shockwave is the one CON who could rule them all.

Using Megatron as much as being used by Megatron, Shockwave reluctantly performs tasks for the Decepticon cause like an obedient dog, because it is logical, and also serves his purposes.

The best seat of power for Shockwave is as an indispensable aid and chief Scientist to Megatron. Along with Soundwave and Starscream, these three Lieutenants help Megatron keep his merciless grip over the Decepticons and any worlds they choose to enslave.

In a power vacuum, Shockwave would not hesitate to step up and take his rightful place as leader. It is after all, only logical. The greater danger however is not Shockwave’s allegiance, but his curiosity to know the secrets of the universe. Not content to merely rule, Shockwave desires to be a techno-god above all natural forces, in domination of the Universe. He seeks ultimate power, no matter the chaos and destruction it causes to organic and metallic life.

KNOCK OUT PROFILE – The Handsome Devil and Narcissist by Nature

knock out _by_ai_eye deviant art.jpg

NAME: Knock Out

FACTION: Decepticons

QUOTE: “A little torture, a little mayhem, CONS just want to have fun”

Narcissistic by nature, Knock Out is only out for Number 1.

Knock-Out has both a sadistic and a playful side, the two of which seem to mix at his leisure. While aligned with the CONS he is not a loyal patriot, and does care about the Decepticon cause so much as being on the winning team.

Like Starscream, Knock-Out is selfish and his methods ultimately serve only himself, but he will fall in line when a Boss Bot like Optimus or Megatron is around to give him an order or a threat.

While Knock-Out’s hobbies include surgery, torture, driving fast and looking at himself frequently in the mirror – he has no sympathy for his patients. A bedside manner that regularly involves torture and interrogation, Knock-Out uses his surgical skills to extract information, or to patch up battle damaged Cons under orders from Megatron.

Knock-Out enjoys surgery just a little *too* much. He’s a Decepticon that is ultimately selfish and not to be trusted. He’s vain and egotistical  and small minded. He’s a prima donna narcissist more in love with himself and his paint own job, who ultimately cares for nobody, except perhaps his friend Breakdown.

Knock Out’s ability to be two faced or weasel out of something gone wrong he is responsible for is second only to Starscream. In any situation where  something needs cutting, buffing or ironic sarcastic caustic comments, he’s the Con for the job.

“All Surgery and No Torture makes for a Dull Day”
