Dark Nitro Convoy is a Decepticon from the Cybertron portion of the Unicron Trilogy continuity family.

They didn't take too long with the packaging.

Dark Nitro Convoy appears to be a more successful attempt by Galvatron to create a twisted clone of an Autobot using his dark Unicron-fed energies. The Velocitron leader Override was used as the template this time.

Unlike Nemesis Breaker, Dark Nitro Convoy seems capable of forming a complete, coherent sentence, and is capable of more independent action, but the thought processes are still pretty simple. Dark Nitro's sole purpose is to beat Override in a deadly race, and leave the Autobot a twisted wreck on the side of the road.

Note: Since in Japan, Override was a male character rather than female, the Japanese Dark Nitro Convoy character would be considered male as well. Of course, since Override is female in the US, many fans extend this gender-switch to Dark Nitro.

It's no surprise what Dark Nitro turns into.

A redeco of Override, Dark Nitro Convoy transforms into a sleek Velocitronic race car. The rear section reveals flip-out (non-firing) blaster barrels when you insert a Cyber Planet Key into it; this assembly becomes Dark Nitro's rifle in robot mode. Transformation from car to robot is partially automatic, the torso and arms automatically swinging into position once the springs are released.
Dark Nitro Convoy comes with a fairly unique Cyber Planet Key. Though it is a gold-bordered Velocitron-style Key, it is cast from colorless clear plastic, like the clear-plastics on the main toy. It is unknown if this is a gang-molding issue, or if Dark Nitro was given a specifically color-changed separate-mold Key.
He was only available through a mail-away offer in TV Magazine in Japan.
