Onslaught is a character introduced in the Transformers: The Last Knight movie.
Personality & Character
Onslaught is a genius when it comes to strategy. According to the TRF, he is currently making a new weapon called The Decapitator. While Onslaught's tactical skill is his most impressive asset, he's more proud of the fact that he's so much bigger than his peers. In true Decepticon fashion, he likes to show off his brawn by bullying smaller foes.
The Last Knight film
Onslaught was among the Decepticons in T.R.F.'s custody. When the T.R.F. opted to work with Megatron and release some Decepticons to be part of his "crew", among Megatron's first choices was... Berserker. However, Berserker was deemed too dangerous, so Megatron had to settle for Onslaught.
Onslaught joined the Decepticons on their hunt for Cade Yeager, but they were met with some not-quite-unexpected resistance in the form of the Autobots Bumblebee, Drift, and Crosshairs. During the fight, Onslaught met his untimely demise at the hands of Drift and Crosshairs, first losing his leg then his head to Drifts sword.
Notes & Trivia
- In The Last Knight, Onslaught reuses Long Haul's model, with minor modifications such as a large cannon affixed onto his left arm, and smokestacks on his back (from the tow truck) that evoke his original G1 self, which had cannons instead.
