Drench can drive very fast in vehicle mode, but his mind is quicker yet. He puts this flow of knowledge to work in the laboratory, staying up far past his recharging time on Kremzeek-fueled invention binges. At these times he is completely caught up in his research, like a youthful Perceptor, and from this research comes a steady stream of powerful tools for Autobot warfare, built by his own skilled manipulators.
To his army buddies, however, Drench is just a young bot who thrives on excitement, and a valuable companion in a firefight. They value him for his ironclad courage, but equally for his skill with the weapons he builds. Of these, his favorites are those which rely on high-pressure fluids.
IDW comics continuity
- Drench (Color Changer, 1993)
- Drench transforms into a LeMans-style race car. In both vehicle and robot modes, he has a double-barreled water-cannon that uses a plastic bellows to store water. His hood/chest changes from dark green to a milky-white with temperature changes, but faster in cold or warm water.
- There is a variation to Drench's water-cannon; one version has painted-gold gun-tips, while later releases have unpainted yellow tips and uses a larger bellows.
- Drench is almost identical to the European Aquaspeeder Deluge. The most immediately obvious difference is that Drench uses transparent-black plastics for his windows and visor, though the colors on the decals are different between the two versions as well.
- Drench's car-mode color scheme was used in a proposed—but ultimately unreleased—Universe Battle in a Box set. The toy would have been a redeco of Armada Wheeljack. What the character originally would have been is unknown, but the design was used years later (with a few alterations) to create BotCon 2008's Shattered Glass Sideswipe.
