Exodus novel

Bruticus Maximus was the result of Shockwave's combiner experiments. His first battle against the Autobots resulted in his head being torn off and his five components badly damaged, but returned in a later battle once they were repaired. Exodus


Rise of the Dark Spark

Voice actor: Nolan North (English)

After escorting Shockwave and the Dark Spark to the gates of Kaon, the Combaticons combined into Bruticus to deal with the Autobot forces that were laying siege to the area. The giant warrior made swift work of them and was lumbering back to the gates when Cliffjumper jumped onto his back and attempted to plant a detpak. However, Bruticus struggled and eventually sandwiched Cliffjumper against his back and the wall. Taking the injured Autobot prisoner, Shockwave forced the Autobots to stand down lest Bruticus crush Cliffjumper. But even though the Decepticons now had clear passage into Kaon, Shockwave had Bruticus bring Cliffjumper inside anyways so he'd have a test subject to test the power of the Dark Spark on.

He goes on rampaging through the Autobot Energon Transport to reach the control room and make a "controlled crash". The last mission sees him destroying the Ark on the way to the Energon fuel reserve and fighting Jazz, which he notes that his shield "slices it dices, but wait, there's more." In the 3rd airstrike Jetfire delivers, Bruticus is blown back off the Ark hitting a vertical stabilizer in the process, most likely landing on Cybertron which is probably why he is found there in the original series.

  • Bruticus (Combiner, 2012)
Bruticus is the formation of the five Combaticons, Onslaught, Blast Off, Vortex, Swindle and Brawl, whose individual weapons also combine into a larger weapon for him.


  • Like many of his other incarnations, Bruticus loses much of his processing power when he is combined.
    • His loss of processing power is possibly due to the energon that is normally routed to his higher thought processors is instead routed to his combat proficiency processors. Evidence to suggest this is that a similar fate befalls Grimlock. Since both are experiments of Shockwave, this is a likely theory.
