Kickback

Shockwave believes that Kickback is one of the original Insecticon along with his brothers, Sharpshot and Hardshell. That being said, he is not necessarily one of the brightest. He is psychotic and unpredictable, often treating dangerous situations as if they were a mere game, laughing constantly. He also tends to repeat himself. He specializes in espionage.

Kickback is very agile, able to make jumps of extreme distance and height. His multiple arms, tipped with sharp talons, would indicate that he is proficient in melee combat. He also seems to enjoy taunting his enemies in combat, all the while remaining safely out of reach. Kickback's alternate mode is that of a robotic locust.

Out of all the Insecticons, Kickback seems to bear a heated rivalry with the Dinobots in general and Grimlock in particular, often taunting him about his team's defeat at the hands of the Insecticons in the Rust Sea which lead to Grimlock's captivity as one of Shockwave's experiments.

When Autobots were detected in the Sea of Rust by Shockwave's security systems, Kickback and his brothers were sent in to apprehend the intruders. Once the intruders were captured they became new test subjects for Shockwave.

Eventually, Grimlock was able to escape his incarceration and went on a rampage through Shockwave's lab in order to free the rest of his team. When this happened, Shockwave decided to treat it as just another experiment. Kickback actually volunteered to confront the massive, and very angry, Autobot in order to help Grimlock re-learn how to transform.

After becoming severely enraged Grimlock was able to transform and proceeded to stomp, chomp, or burn all of Kickback's Insecticon minions. This was finally enough to trigger what little sense of self-preservation Kickback possessed and the terrified Insecticon attempted to flee, only to have the door knocked down on top of him by a newly arrived Slug. Even after being trapped beneath the door, Kickback still laughed and giggled the whole time.

Notes

  • Kickback is the only Insecticon retaining his original name.
    • He also bears Shrapnel's habit of repeating himself.
  • Kickback appears to be the inspiration for the Swarmer breed of Insecticons.
  • Kickback is the only survivor of the trio as he was trapped under a door but can be seen squirming and is therefore alive (Hardshell was smashed against a terminal and sharpshot was ripped apart and crushed).
