Brawn loves a challenge, be it Earth’s rugged terrain, or a Decepticon ten times his size! He’s your quintessential macho tough-bot. When not fighting the enemy, he’s trying to get his fellow Autobots to go up against him in a bout of punch-for-punch or arm wrestling. Brawn delights in physical challenges and whenever he faces one, he becomes fully alive. It is his enjoyment of the challenge itself that makes him valuable to Optimus Prime. Brawn will never be discouraged and his never-say-die attitude in the face of adversity bolsters the morale of his teammates, no matter how dire the circumstances. Despite his small stature, Brawn is one of the strongest Earth-bound Autobots, capable of lifting 190,000 pounds with ease. One punch or kick can knock down a building! Brawn is resistant to most conventional artillery while still being highly agile and dexterous, which is why he’s frequently partnered with Bumblebee, especially in mountainous terrain. Brawn’s old style circuitry, though robustly designed for strength and physical defense, is vulnerable to electromagnetic and other wave and particle based attacks. His main fault is that he tends to be contemptuous towards those not as tough as himself. He doesn’t trust anyone who isn’t willing to get their hands dirty, which can put him at odds with Autobot scientists and programmers like Highbrow and Chromedome. Brawn is often too eager to show how tough he is and sometimes destroys the wrong thing before re-checking his target.
