The massive Blackout has been described as the "hound" of Megatron. He was always to be found looming powerful and silent behind his leader's right shoulder. When given a target he hunts it down with fierce determination. Blackout has a sneaky side and uses his symbiotic companion Scorponok's small size to great advantage.
In the Hellcat Squadran Universe, his primary adversary is Claire Farron-Ferran, while Scorponok is enemies with Claire's sister, Serah Farron-Villers. He also bears a deep-running hatred for William Lennox.
