Berserker is a character introduced in the Transformers: The Last Knight movie. Berseker was a member of the Decepticons. His chest has been painted on with a red "X" shape.
Personality & Character
Berserker is a seething ball of destructive energy, his lust for violence constant and irrepressible. Anyone and anything that gets in his way is torn to shreds, leading his allies and enemies alike to give him as wide a berth as possible.
By some miracle, the humans captured him and he's been constantly struggling against his restraints, spitting out the most graphic threats imaginable, which have led to stronger restraints, which make Berserker even more angry...and the cycle continues. Naturally, Megatron wants this maniac back in his ranks, but he knows it's a tall order.
Berserker was among the Decepticons in T.R.F.'s custody. When T.R.F. was negotiating with Megatron, Megatron requested Berserker be one of the Decepticons released from custody to be part of his "crew". T.R.F. declined, claiming Berserker was far too dangerous to be released, so Megatron settled on Onslaught instead.
Released in 2017, he comes with two clubs which are identical to Crankcase's weapons. His alt mode is a Chevrolet Suburban. His shoulder blades are on ball joints, while his feet can snap into position, giving him a crouched stance while his hip can fold up woth his legs, all in all to help with his transformation scheme. This toy is also what some people may call a shellformer.
Notes & Trivia
- The Berserker shares a surprisingly identical appearance with Crankcase, but his toy a completely new mold, which may mean that he has a role in the movie and not just a redeco of Crankcase's toy.
- But this is unconfirmed, although, at 1:36 of the 5th movie's trailer, two transformers are caught in an explosion, both which share black as their primary colour, one of them might possibly be the Berserker.
- According to Seibertron, the berserker is modeled after the Decepticon enforcer in the Dark of the Moon Videogame who also looks a lot like Crankcase.
