This article is about the Robots in Disguise/Universe/Armada Decepticon. For the Generation One Powermaster Decepticon, see Dreadwind (G1).

Dreadwind is a Decepticon character in the Universe conflict.

"Fear is the final gift I give to those I destroy. And brown betty. But mostly fear."

Dreadwind is part of Megazarak's personal strike force. He's somewhat of a perfectionist, and will not choose a second target until he is absolutely sure he has finished the first. He is always searching for increasingly interesting and hard-to-find objects to destroy. His obsession in finding targets worthy of his attentions is near pathological, much like a collector of rare items. Unfortunately, what Dreadwind finds interesting to destroy is often at odds with his mission objective. Even worse, if he's forced to stop firing upon a target before he thinks he's finished, he will become madly enraged and fire on Autobot and Decepticon alike.

Dreadwind and his partner Smokejumper can combine to form the superjet Dreadwing, in which form Dreadwind's lust for destruction and Smokejumper's eye for detail join to create a dangerous force to reckon with.


Note: Dreadwind has never appeared in any actual fiction (comic, text story, etc), but he does appear to have played a role in some regardless. Though he was released under the Robots in Disguise toyline, his bio in the 3H Fan Club magazine makes him part of Megazarak's strike force in the Universe conflict. The same issue gives instructions on how to combine Dreadwind and Smokejumper with Armada Galvatron to form "MegaWing Galvatron", with a note to check online for "Dark MegaWing Galvatron" directions, combining the whole schebang with Tidal Wave. Robert Yee's instructions include a backstory for Megawing Galvatron that places Dreadwind and Smokejumper in the Armada universe.


Robots in Disguise

  • Dreadwind & Smokejumper (Decepticon, 2004)
A redeco of the Generation 2 Dreadwing toy exclusive to Target stores, Dreadwind transforms into a "flying wing" style stealth bomber with underslung six-missile gatling cannon. He can also transform into a treaded "tank" mode. In jet form, he can combine with Smokejumper's jet mode to make a complete aircraft, Dreadwing. Dreadwind and Smokejumper are notable for being the only toys in a U.S. main line to include decal sheets, that must be peeled and applied by their purchaser, since the end of Generation 2.
The same mold is used by BB and Gigant Bomb. The mold was also intended to be used for Megatron in Generation 2, but was never released.
There was an actual unproduced molds used for the photoshoot of the production box, or the so-called "Photoshoot Set". While the production set was molded in dark green, light green, grey, and a translucent red for his eyes and cockpit, the "photoshoot" set sports black instead of dark grey, the light green is lighter and has no decepticon insignias and has red missles. This set exists as part of a private collection.
