The name or term Kickback refers to more than one character or idea. For a list of other meanings, see Kickback (disambiguation).

A member of the Destruction Team, Kickback combines with his teammates to form the powerful Bruticus Maximus. Had he not been overly close to his exploding team leader, we might know more about his flipper-footed majesty.

Japanese name: Brawl


Energon cartoon[]

Shortly after awakening from their long slumber, Bruticus Maximus and Constructicon Maximus were ordered by Galvatron to pursue the fleeing Superion Maximusafter the Autobot attempted to attack the Decepticon leader. Both combiners separated into their individual components and gave chase. They later pledged their allegiance to Galvatron, believing him to be the future of Cybertron. Wishes

When Six Shot pinpointed an Autobot signal on the planet's surface, Galvatron sent Constructicon Maximus and Bruticus Maximus out to investigate. The two combiners came upon Autobot refugees looking about the crashed Miranda II for survivors, and decided to have some fun by beating them up. Arcee and Kicker sped by to allow the Autobots to escape, and Bruticus Maximus split into Kickback and his other components to give them chase. They were unable to catch the pair, but came upon them again after the Omnicons had managed to clog up an energon pipeline, hindering the Decepticons' planetary defense grid. Bruticus Maximus assumed his combined form to gun them down, but was countered by the arrival of Optimus Prime and other Autobot reinforcements. Break Through

During a virtual training match between the Autobots and Decepticons, Kickback was part of Barricade's Destruction Team, fighting the Air Team alongside the Construction Team. They combined into Bruticus Maximus to defeat Superion Maximus, only to be defeated in turn by Optimus Supreme.  Distribution

Kickback and the other Destruction Team members eventually paid for their treachery during a final show down with the Air Team. Bruticus Maximus and Constructicon Maximus double teamed Superion Maximus, who held his own and destroyed Constructicon's spark before the Autobot was reduced to Storm Jet. However, the ghost of Superion's brother appeared, destroying Blackout, giving Storm Jet the chance to procure Constructicons's dead limbs and recombine into Superion. Before Bruticus could recover, the Autobot pierced his spark causing an explosion which engulfed them all.  Spark

Kickback was never referred to by name, nor was he ever presented as a sentient, individual being. Most of his appearances were as the left leg of Bruticus Maximus.



  • Kickback (Basic, 2005)
Japanese ID number: SD-21
US Team member number: D4
Kickback shares a mold with his teammate Blight, transforming into an anti-aircraft tank similar to a Gepard. He has a clear-blue energon chip that can attach to most Energon-series toy molds. He can also form the arm or leg to any combination of Energon combiner team super robot, though his "standard" position is as the left leg of Bruticus Maximus.
This mold was also used to make Timelines Landquake.
  • Bruticus (Multi-pack, 2004)
Japanese ID number: SD-21
In Japan, Kickback (aka "Brawl") was only available as part of a complete set of all five Destruction Team members, never as an individual. There are several small deco differences between the Hasbro and Takara releases: the Takara version uses a darker clear-blue, plus has the number "16" tampographed on his tank-mode side instead of the Hasbro version's "B/12".
