Profile: Powerhouse is among
the most selfish machines within the Decepticon ranks. His role is
to provide supplemental power to his fellow Decepticons during battle, but
instead, he hoards his energy reserves like they were going out of style.
He is terrified by the prospect of running out of fuel, so he compensates
for this fear by stockpiling as much energy as he can get his hands on.
He's been known to steal watch batteries, plug into electrical outlets
at shopping centers, and siphon gas from parked cars. He's convinced
that one day, the Decepticons will completely exhaust the Earth's natural
resources, and he wants to be the last Decepticon standing long after his
comrades have ground to a halt.
is equipped with internal batteries that are designed to collect and store
energy collected during Decepticon raids. They can store up to 130,000
kilojoules of power before he reaches maximum capacity, which is later processed
and converted into energon at the Decepticon base. He is theoretically
capable of discharging his stored energy through his fingertips in powerful
electrical bursts, but in practice he rarely utilizes this talent because
he considers it to be extremely wasteful. He carries two anti-traction
blasters that can coat any surface with a slippery substance. When
used on roads, this disrupts the ability of the Autobots to drive
Weaknesses: Powerhouse will
go to great lengths to secure a potential energy source, even if it puts
him at risk. Sometimes, when his batteries are carrying a charge for
an extended period of time, he overheats and some of his internal systems
are disabled or even damaged as a result.
