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

Nightbeat is a Mini-Con from the Universe conflict.

Nightbeat is the Mini-Con partner to the Decepticon Treadshot, helping him in his quest to smash the crap out of Ultra Magnus.


  • Ultra Magnus with Over-Run vs. Treadshot with Nightbeat (Battle in a Box, 2004)
Nightbeat is a very slight redeco of the Armada Nightbeat toy (the plastics are brighter and more matte), transforming into a motorcycle of probably-made-up model. He is specially designed to fit inside the flip-up panel in the rear of Treadshot's vehicle mode (or any version of that mold).
He was only available as part of a "Battle in a Box" multi-pack along with Universe Ultra Magnus, Over-Run, and Treadshot, sold in "market six" stores like Kohl's.
This mold was also used to make Gauge and the Search and Destroy Robot.


  • Another way to tell Universe Nightbeat from Armada Nightbeat is to check the rear wheel assembly (the left arm in robot mode), specifically the arm-joint that is bolted to the main body. On Armada Nightbeat, the "B"-shaped plastic part has the indent facing outward from the body. On Universe Nightbeat (and all other uses of the mold, for that matter), it's facing inward.
