Explanation of the conversion: Repugnus can only use his rifle in robot made and only attack with his teeth, claws and sparks in monster mode.

History: (Dreamwave comics): Repugnus is so ruthless that even anarchic outcasts like the Dinobots are wary of him. This suits Repugnus perfectly well. He's a sneering, vicious outsider who acts like he doesn't want or need anyone's acceptance or approval, least of all his military superiors. Arrograntly and proudly insubordinate, Repugnus has been kicked out of the Autobots time and again for gross misconduct and the perpetration of violent acts more befitting a Decepticon war criminal than an Autobot. Repugnus laughs whenever this happens, though, because he knows its always only a matter of time until Autobot command comes crawling to ask him back, begging him to take a mission. This is because the fearless and amoral Repugnus will do absolutely anything, no matter how heinous or evil, to accomplish his job-and his skills are legendary. In times of war, even the most upstanding military commander knows he needs troops willing to take the dirtiest, darkest missions, and thats where Repugnus comes in; missions that would make a more moral and conservative Autobot ill only make Repugnus smile. Assassination, deep cover infiltration, and torture are just a few of his specialties. No one is certain what event in his past made him the monster he is today or why he continues to remain loyal, ultimately, to the Autobot cause.

History (Marvel comics): Repugnus and the Monsterbots were among the Autobots who joined Fortress Maximus in leaving Cybertron for the planet Nebulos (Transformers: Headmasters #1).

Followed to Nebulos by the Decepticons under Scorponok, Fortress Maximus' band left Nebulos for the planet Earth (Transformers: Headmasters #4).

Repugnus was present when Grimlock fought Blaster for leadership of the Autobots on Earth's moon. The Autobots were then attacked by the Decepticons lead by Ratbat (Transformers #41).

Repugnus has a personality as repellent as his looks. He's foul mouthed and even fouler tempered, a vicious anti-social misfit. He's actively insubordinate, flouting authority and disobeying orders. Time after time he's been kicked out of the Autobot ranks, only to be asked back when a particularly nasty mission crops up. When it's just too dirty and low-down for any other Autobots to consider, Repugnus is the creature for the job! The more disgusting it is, the more Repugnus loves it. Some say he's just too nasty to wear the badge, more Decepticon than Autobot, but as any military commander knows, sometimes in a war you need someone who doesn't quite play by the rules to get the job done, so warriors like Repugnus become a necessary evil. Although what he does isn't nice, Repugnus is very good at it! He has skill and intelligence that put other more estimable characters firmly in the shade. Not only does Repugnus go under cover, ferreting out information from the enemy camp, he also spreads damaging disinformation and gossip, undermining morale, turning enemy on enemy! An embittered loner, Repugnus just loves his work!

Trivia: Repugnus shouldn't be confused with Repugnus II, a Decepticon who turns into a lizard/mantis fuzor.

Repugnus Powers: Repugnus is highly skilled and can fly. In creature mode, Repugnus has infrared and x-ray vision, invaluable aids to his spying activities. His highly advanced optical centers can emit as well as receive, generating a variety of color and stroboscopic effects that can dazzle or disorient an enemy. In both robot and creature mode he's very tough and resistant to injury, but he's also very slow. His supertoughened claws contain chemical, electromagnetic and audio sensors, and can rip through almost any substance. Repugnus holds no faith in guns or other weapons, feeling he can accomplish all he needs with fists and claws, up close - where it counts!

Weaknesses: The fact that no one likes or trusts Repugnus tends to alienate him from team plays, sometimes leaving him exposed and vulnerable. He's so disliked in fact that it's rumored he must watch his back even when amongst his fellow Autobots.
