"The question isn't who is going to let me.. it's who is going to stop me!"

Backfire is the embodiment of a loyal Decepticon, but that's not saying much for his combat prowess. Extremely gung-ho and persistent, the only thing that usually stands in his way is...himself. But you cannot find another Decepticon that is utterly and completely ready and willing to go to work. In robot form, Backfire wields a multitude of weapons including a Hypno Ray and Glue gun. In F-16 mode, he utilizes blinding speed and the usual Seeker arsenal to lay waste to his enemies. Backfire is a bit dull in the wits department and overly confident in his abilities, he often takes on much more than he can chew.


Backfire has spent most of his time on a 'backwater' planet called Accilade-6, and has only joined the frontline because of a clerical error.

After serving a myriad of years, the Decepticons ventured to Accilade-6 and discovered just why Backfire was the best and brightest of the Decepticons stationed there: the rest were worst bafoons than he was!

More recently, his former assistant Overture has proven to be a thorn in Backfire's side. In 2033, the piano-former took control of Backfire via a Pretender-like process and trampled the Earth masquerading as Galvatron Jr. In 2034, Overture was the man behind the scenes when the Insecticlone pods Buzzkill and Scorn had implanted in his spacious head rebelled, taking him captive.
