"Speed is the key... It doesn't matter how big your gun is if you can't hit me!"

Redshift is an ambitious and arrogant Decepticon. He firmly believes that speed is the key to being a good fighter, and will not hesitate to prove this. Redshift's alternate mode is a spacecraft, capable of speeds well over mach 5, although too small for any large cargo. While in robot mode, his speed is greatly diminished, but he has more weapons availible. Even though his offense is low, with his high speed he's still hard to take down. Redshift loves flight, in robot or spacecraft mode, although as a spaceship he is cabable extremly high speeds in atmospheric and space conditions. He believes that because of his high speed he is superior in combat to most other transformers.


Redshift is from the planetiod of Charr. After deciding there are more opportunities and chances of promotionon Earth, and definatly more Autobots to scrap, he found his way to Earth. Now he's on Earth, seeking to move up in the ranks of the Decepticons, and spread a little mayhem along the way.

  • Redshift is arrogant and ambitious, and he can either be a major butt-kisser or a real jackass, depending on whether you have something he needs, or are in a position to further Redshift's own agenda.
