* ForTheEvulz: Both cartoon and comic Decepticons got started basically because they were bored and wanted a fight.



* TheDreaded: Monstructor actually projects a field of terror, to help the pants-darkening sight of his just appearing.
* EldritchAbomination: The Dreamwave profiles paint Monstructor as some horrific thing that just ''happens'' to come in the form of a violent robot, channelling evil there isn't a name for.
* HairTriggerTemper: Bristleback is filled with hate for everything and everyone.
* HiddenDepths: Underneath his mad exterior, Slog laments the loss of life the war causes on both sides. His superiors aren't happy with that.



* NoIndoorVoice: Scowl, with his already loud voice amplified by his shell.




to:

* WalkingWasteland: Monstructor drains the life out of everything nearby, and his solar rifle draws in every bit of sunlight nearby. He longs for the day when he just roam the galaxy killing everyone and everything he can find.
* WeaksauceWeakness: Bristleback has to stay in his shell most of the time, otherwise he'll start rusting up like mad.




to:

* KnowWhenToFoldEm: Blackjack has particular skill at analysing a situation, and knowing when's a good time to strike or not. He also likes using this skill to ''actually'' know when to fold.
* MeaningfulName: Blackjack likes to gamble.



* TheChosenMany: Thunderwing is one of the vanishingly rare Decepticons capable of reacting to the Matrix. Of course, by the time he got his mitts on it, the Matrix had... ''changed''.



* SealedEvilInACan: By virtue of having run out of energy and being locked within his own Pretender shell. That is, until Bludgeon and his insane Pretender cult roused the beast from its slumber..=

to:

* DirtyCoward: Blackout will flee the minute he thinks the battle's going poorly. Only his fear of Spaceshot keeps him from getting out of dodge.



* NoExportForYou: They were only available in Europe.
* PaletteSwap: Stalker and Soundwave zig-zag with this trope. Despite being intentionally designed to look like Soundwave, he was a brand-new mold with a different altmode. Since tape decks became outdated, Soundwave has been released at least twice as a repaint of Stalker, so Soundwave is the PaletteSwap, but since Soundwave is an older, more recognisable character, Stalker tends to be regarded as the PaletteSwap.

* BadBoss: He was prone to bullying and threatening his underlings, particularly Shrapnel. At one point, one of his troops was killed by a malfunctioning spacebridge. Rather than caring much, Straxus just send another guy in to see what had happened. They died too.



* [[spoiler: SuicideAttack]]: He's a K-class Decepticon. Guess what the K stands for.

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Marvel Comics Scorponok's approval rating didn't so much sink as drown when he let Starscream back into the fold. Had Optimus not decided to surrender as a show of faith, Shockwave's attempted coup probably would've gone unopposed.



* AntiVillain: Comic Zarak, who made the Decepticons leave Cybertron rather than allow harm to come to his daughter Lyra. While merging with Scorponok didn't do him any favours, as time went by he became increasingly doubtful and unsure of himself, not to mention proving willing to listen to Optimus after the guy saved his life (as Optimus does), and eventually went out fighting Unicron.



* DependingOnTheWriter: Scorponok's portrayal wildly varies between continuities: in the Sunbow cartoon (specifically, "The Rebirth") he appears to be a lifeless HumongousMecha controlled by Zarak, in the Marvel comics Scorponok is a large (but not huge) sentient Decepticon who allies with Lord Zarak, and in ''The Headmasters'', Scorponok is a small Cybertronian who controls a lifeless Transtector to become [=MegaZarak=] (and later [=BlackZarak=]).
** In addition, some continuities have him in merely a high ranking position, while others make him the leader for a time. Some continuities give him redeemable traits, while in others he's a CardCarryingVillain.

in the Marvel comics Scorponok is a large (but not huge) sentient Decepticon who allies with Lord Zarak, a scheming Nebulan politician. Bob Budiansky depicted Scorponok as largely being your typical comic book villain, but Zarak as having some ethics. Furman depicted Zarak as being almost entirely in control, and when he wrote Scorponok in Regeneration One, Scorponok was essentially a James Bond villain.

* EnemyMine: He proved willing to team-up with Optimus. Eventually, at any rate, when Optimus told him Unicron was coming.



* EvilVersusEvil: Comics Scorponok vied for control of the Decepticons against Rabat. He eventually won via shooting the guy in the back. Later on, he has to deal with Shockwave and Starscream wresting control from ''him''.



* MythologyGag: His Titan Master partner, Revolver, looks like Jack, whose death Sixshot caused in ''Headmasters''.

* ImAHumanitarian: Skullcruncher has eaten both Nebulans and Transformers. He's not really fond of either (Nebulans aren't very nutritional, and as for Autobots... see his quote).

* AdaptationalHeroism: While his toy bio solicits him as a crazy sadist, his main appearances in fiction (Marvel UK and IDW) cast him as a NobleDemon at worst and an AntiHero at best. Beyond that he's often just background filler and presumably no worse than the average Decepticon.

A Decepticon who has six forms and is a one man army.

to:

A Decepticon who has six forms and forms, Sixshot is a one man army.army and among the most deadly Transformers to ever exist. Vile, nasty, and gleefully murderous, Sixshot delights in sending foes to "the great junkyard in the sky".



* ChallengeSeeker: Sees battle as a way to test himself against powerful opponents.
* EquippableAlly: While in gun mode.

to:

* AdaptationalHeroism: ''The Headmasters'' gives Sixshot far more redeeming qualities than his Tech Specs do, giving him a sense of honor and decency who never kills innocents or children in cold blood. For comparison, his Tech Specs claim his one redeeming trait is him [[NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead speaking well of his victims]].
* AdaptationalSuperpowerChange:
** ''Anime/TransformersHeadmasters'', for whatever reason, gave Sixshot ninja abilities in addition to his alternate modes (of which he received an extra one in "Wingwolf"... which was obviously made via fiddling with the toy a bit).
** His ''Titans Return'' toy, thanks to toy guns becoming taboo in the modern era, replaces the gun mode for a submarine mode. [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial It's totally not his gun mode turned upside down, we swear]].
* ArchnemesisDad: He acts as this to his son, Quickswitch, who joined the Autobots to make good where Sixshot went bad.
* {{BFG}}: He can transform into a laser gun. Like Shockwave, he doesn't shrink when in this mode, and he can use jets to move around in gun mode.
* ChallengeSeeker: Sees battle as a way to test himself against powerful opponents.

* CoolCar: One of his altmodes is an armed off-road car.
* CoolStarship: He can transform into a Cybertronian spaceship.

* TheFriendNobodyLikes: The IDW Decepticons all fear and despise Sixshot for the horrific nature of his function as a Phase Sixer. The only ones that come close to being his friends are the Terrorcons, who look up to Sixshot and want to be just as strong as he is.
* HeelFaceTurn: While he starts off as a nasty piece of work in ''Anime/TransformersHeadmasters'', he eventually comes to abandon the Decepticons and form a friendship with Daniel.
* HeroKiller: In ''The Headmasters'', Sixshot kills Ultra Magnus in a duel on Earth.



* MeaningfulName: Sixshot, being a Six Changer, has six forms--his robot mode, [[TankGoodness a tank]], [[{{BFG}} a gun]], [[CoolShip a spaceship]], an off-road vehicle, and a winged wolf.
* NobleDemon: Sixshot, in ''Headmasters'' only serves the Decepticons out of a sense of sworn duty to Galvatron, and is actually a principled, decent and honorable warrior who does not kill children or innocents in cold blood. This hidden decency allows him to befriend Daniel later on, resulting in a HeelFaceTurn.
* [[OneManArmy One Bot Army]]: Sixshot is perfectly capable of holding his own against far more numerous opponents. Fitting, given that he is also a...
* PersonOfMassDestruction: In the IDW comics, Sixshot is one of Megatron's "Phase-Sixers", a trio of extremely powerful Decepticons who are expected--and perfectly capable--of ''razing entire planets to the ground whenever they see action.''
* SuperSoldier: In IDW.

to:

* MeaningfulName: LosingYourHead: His ''Titans Return'' toy partners him with an ancient Titan Master named Revolver, who forms Sixshot's head.
* LoudOfWar: Sixshot wields two hypersonic concussion blasters, which are used in every one of his modes, though the wolf mode prefers the use of its razor sharp teeth.
* MadeOfIron: At the end of ''Spotlight: Metroplex'', Sixshot is crushed underfoot by [[HumongousMecha the titular Titan]]. '''And he survives.'''
* MeaningfulName:
**
Sixshot, being a Six Changer, has six forms--his forms -- his robot mode, [[TankGoodness a tank]], [[{{BFG}} tank, a gun]], [[CoolShip gun, a spaceship]], spaceship, an off-road vehicle, and a winged wolf.
** The IDW continuity gives his name additional meaning as a Phase Sixer -- as the sixth phase of Megatron's [[ThePlan infiltration protocol]], he's sent in to completely raze a given planet and eliminate any remaining scraps of resistance.
* NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead: His one redeeming trait is his admiration for the opponents he's killed, which are often those he deemed {{worthy opponent}}s.
* NobleDemon: Sixshot, in ''Headmasters'' ''The Headmasters'' only serves the Decepticons out of a sense of sworn duty to Galvatron, and is actually a principled, decent and honorable warrior who does not kill children or innocents in cold blood. This hidden decency allows him to befriend Daniel later on, resulting in a HeelFaceTurn.
* [[OneManArmy One Bot Army]]: OneManArmy: With the function of Solo Transformer Assault Group and six transformations, Sixshot is perfectly capable of holding his own against far more numerous opponents. Fitting, given that opponents.
* OutOfFocus: Unusually for a MerchandiseDriven franchise and an ambitious toy, Sixshot made only a single appearance in the Marvel comic and the Sunbow cartoon (but for the latter,
he is also a...
sure made it count).
* PersonOfMassDestruction: In the IDW comics, Sixshot is one of Megatron's "Phase-Sixers", "Phase Sixers", a trio of extremely powerful Decepticons who are expected--and expected -- and perfectly capable--of capable -- of ''razing entire planets to the ground whenever they see action.''
* SavageWolves: Sixshot has a mechanical winged wolf as one of his transformations, and he's as cruel, cunning and destructive as any Decepticon comes.
* SuperSoldier: In IDW.
One gets the impression that this is Sixshot's role in the Decepticon hierarchy. It's even more blatant in IDW, where he is explicitly created as a Phase-Sixer.
* TankGoodness: One of his many transformations is of a Cybertronian tank.
* WorthyOpponent: If he speaks well of his victims, he must consider them this to some degree.

One of the Duocons - robots whose bodies transform into two vehicles.

to:

One of the Duocons - -- robots whose bodies transform into two vehicles.vehicles. Battletrap's brain modules get along well in battle, and torment opponents in concert with each other. In at least one continuty, though, he is upgraded to being a Triple Changer to save his life.



* CombiningMecha: He inverts the trope -- his transformation involves him splitting into two separate altmodes.



* DiscardAndDraw: In ''Timelines'', Battletrap can no longer split into two different altmodes after an operation to permanently reunite his brain modules once they started to develop an immunity to each other. In return, however, he became a Triple Changer instead.




to:

* VehicularAssault: A favorite battle tactic of his is smacking an enemy back and forth between his two altmodes before finally finishing them off.



The other Duocon, Flywheels is ''far'' more unstable than his brother-in-arms, with his most frequent enemy being himself rather than any Autobot.



* DependingOnTheWriter: He can split into two altmodes in continuities like Headmasters, G1, and Dreamwave, but in the Marvel UK comic he was more of a triplechanger, as well as the IDW continuity.

A Decepticon with strong belief in the occult and the supernatural, Mindwipe is a skilled hypnotist who has made many efforts to contact the realm of dead Decepticons, with little success. He's often partnered with a being named Vorath that forms his head.

One of the Decepticon Targetmasters, Misfire boasts enhanced firepower than puts a dent in whatever he hits. The problem, as his name implies, is actually ''hitting'' something that isn't an ally.

* EmpathicWeapon: Aimless.

to:

* SuperStrength: He's powerful enough to rip open the hull of a battleship and snap cars in half between his jaws.
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: This is his philosophy; with powerful jaws, missiles that explode on contact, and a violent disposition, he uses more force than he really needs to when fighting foes. He gets so into it that he often forgets what his mission was, and/or looks like a fool as he keeps on fighting long after the fight's over.
