'''Depth Charge''' is a powerful but insubordinate Maximal whose singular goal in life is to hunt down and either capture or destroy [[Rampage (BW)|Protoform X]]. He has a joyless, insatiable lust for justice.

===Beast Wars===
 
'''Voice Actor''' [[David Sobolov]] (US), [[Kiyoyuki Yanada]] (Japan)
 
 
Depth Charge was a security officer on [[Colony Omicron]] when Protoform X broke free and went on a rampage. As the colony's sole survivor, Depth Charge made hunting down "X" his only mission in life. Pursuing Protoform X to places throughout the Universe (including [[Starbase Rugby]]) Depth Charge successfully captured Protoform X, and turned him over to the [[Maximal Elder]]s. The Elders decided that Protoform X should be placed in stasis aboard the [[Axalon (BW)|Axalon]] and dumped on an uninhabited world.
 
 
Knowing that "[[Optimus Primal (BW)|Primal]] would screw it up", Depth Charge continued to monitor the Universe for any trace of Protoform X. The sensors on his [[Starhopper]] picked up traces of Protoform X just as he was pulled through a temporal anomaly. The resulting crash left him on prehistoric Earth with a transmetal Manta Ray body, and put him right in the middle of the Beast Wars.
 
 
Depth Charge became a wild card for the Maximals. They never knew if he could be counted on, as his pursuit of Rampage always took precedent. Throughout the entire third season of beast wars he tracked Rampage's spark (And Dinbot 2's later on, though this was not completely intentional)through the use of his cybershark drone. This hunt of rampage however usually ended up getting the maximals in trouble. An Example is the case of the episode changing of the guard (where his refusal to directly join in the capture of sentinal resulted in its loss).
 
 
However Depth charge would comply with the maximals from time to time. When Depth charge was called forth to stop Megatron from launching the nemesis he followed the order, for even he knew how important it was to stop Megatron. Ironically it was Rampage who found depth charge on this mission forcing him into a battle. The struggle continued which was intensified by the existence of some convienently placed energon crystals which were scattered all over the battlefield. As depth charge grabbed a crystal and forced it into rampage's spark he uttered his final words-
 
 
''Raw energon! Right through your twisted spark! Take it! Take it straight to the Pit, you stinking piece of slag!"''
 
 
Eventually rampage stopped struggling and simply began to laugh maniacally as depth charge shoved the energon through his spark. It resulted in a hugh explosion which destroyed both Depth Charge and Rampage. Depth charge had finally suceeded in destroying Rampage, but failed to stop the nemesis.
 
 
===IDW Beast Wars Comics===
 
Depth Charge was observed emerging from the water by [[Magmatron (BW)|Magmatron]] and [[Drill Bit (BW)|Drill Bit]]; due to their chronal displacement, they could see him, but he could not see them.

Revision as of 19:03, November 25, 2006

Argh! Sorry, X-Bob. I'm not sure what happened to her talk page. Anyway. What I was going to say:

Spoiler jazz

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

Alexis' appearance at the end of Cybertron should wait until that episode has aired on Cartoon Network. Frankly, just making a Cybertron section is a spoiler -- hell, the presence of a spoiler tag itself signifies there is new Alexis information. So no. --ItsWalky 01:45, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

Plot details for characters WITHIN the Cybertron cartoon, yeah, I can see that, so long as the spoiler tag is intact. But Alexis et all? Nonono. --M Sipher 01:50, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
The spoiler tag says it all, "Plot and/or ending details follow." I wasn't aware the fact that Alexis is still apparently alive constitutes a plot detail. Shellspark 02:15, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
I'm not 100% against it, and this is obviously a majority-rules sort of thing, I'd imagine, but I'd say her appearance itself in Cybertron would be a spoiler. Her appearance is the surprise. --ItsWalky 02:21, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
What he said. --M Sipher 02:32, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

I'm sure every has long forgot about this by now, but whatever it was that was going to be said about Alexis... is not really a spoiler anymore. --Suki Brits 19:03, 25 November 2006 (UTC)
