During a battle for the [[Cyber Planet Key]]s with the Decepticons, [[Optimus Prime (UT)|Optimus Prime]] intended to send Overhaul and [[Landmine (Energon)|Landmine]] to the [[Jungle Planet]]. However, an attack by the Decepticons disrupted [[Vector Prime|Vector Prime's]] gateway portal and Overhaul was left on Jungle Planet alone. There he became embroiled in the power struggle between [[Snarl (Cybertron)|Snarl]], Snarl's mentor [[Backstop]], and the Jungle Planet's brutal tyrant [[Scourge (Cybertron)|Scourge]].
+
Overhaul was one of the most bull-headed members of the Autobots. During a skirmish with the [[Decepticon]]s, he charged into battle without backup and was pinned under a massive boulder. When he came to, [[Optimus Prime (Armada)|Optimus Prime]] was personally defending Overhaul's position, apologising to him for not coming sooner. This taught Overhaul to value friendship and camaraderie. {{storylink|Honor}}
   
He trained hard, but could not best Scourge at single combat. He sought training from Backstop and Snarl, and eventually invoked the spirit of the world, finding himself transformed into the mega-feline Leobreaker.

Soon afterwards, the [[Unicron Singularity]] threatened to destroy [[Cybertron (planet)|Cybertron]], so Overhaul accompanied Optimus Prime's unit to [[Earth]] in search of the [[Cyber Planet Keys]] that would restore the Allspark of [[Primus]], at least according to the time-travelling [[Vector Prime]]. {{storylink|Fallen (Cybertron episode)|Fallen}} During the construction of their new base on Earth, Overhaul alone completed the application of the stealth coating that prevented their base from being detected by [[Megatron (Armada)|Megatron]] and [[Starscream (Armada)|Starscream]]. {{storylink|Haven}}

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

Let's see what you can see...

This article is in need of images.

Specifics: Toys


Overhaul is an Autobot from the Cybertron portion of the Unicron Trilogy continuity family. Upon receiving a new body, he took the name Leobreaker.

So, I'm a robot that turns into a car that later turns into a robot that turns into a lion, but I still keep the same head sculpt? Dude, you sure this isn't just armour? Or maybe you like my face too much to change it for another.

Overhaul is an Autobot warrior, having fought alongside Optimus Prime during the Unicron Battles and Powerlinx Battles, and likely before that, as well. He is gruff and oftentimes confrontational, but is exceptionally loyal to the Autobot cause regardless. He says he prefers to work alone, but knows deep down the values of friendship and teamwork.

As Leobreaker, his gung-ho attitude is heavily amplified, but he's no longer so independent-minded. He's become fast friends with Snarl of the Jungle Planet, and has even gained his own personal Mini-Con attendants. He's even taken a shine to Earth team sports like baseball, possibly as a replacement for war. This new focus on teamwork does have its downside; he harbors a little bit of resentment that his Savage Claw Mode combination with Optimus might not be as strong as the Sonic Wing Mode the Autobot leader can form with Wing Saber.

He is the cousin of the Decepticon Brushguard.

NotesEdit

Leobreakerearly

Look, ma, a hand!

  • The original plans for Leobreaker involved a more coherent Savage Claw Mode arm design, complete with fingers and thumbs. But a variety of factors resulted in the simplified form, including rising petroleum prices.
  • Additionally, one of the early prototypes featured a faux-SUV chest for Leobreaker, probably to link him more closely to his first body. Like the previously-listed changes, this was likely removed to lower the production cost -- or possibly it was discarded to show the lion head as a chest-motif for courage.
  • The television CGI model of Leobreaker used during the Savage Claw Mode combination sequence animation, as well as the representation of the combined arm mode is based upon a modified version of one of the original prototypes of Leobreaker, who, as mentioned above, had a much more complex and believable 'arm-mode'.
  • In a related tidbit, the original naming idea was apparently to go from "Trailbreaker" to "Leobreaker". When they couldn't get Trailbreaker, it seems Hasbro considered naming Overhaul's lion form Overcast, as that name is listed as Leobreaker's American name in the Galaxy Force Phase Ignition guidebook. However, they ultimately kept the name Leobreaker.
  • Liobreaker's Japanese name is Jushin (Beast God) Ligerjack, which may possibly derive from the Jushin Liger, another Takara franchise.
  • Both of this character's bodies feature three claws extending from each wrist. This makes him similar to Wolverine.
  • The combination sequence between Optimus Prime and Leobreaker is a reference to the combination sequence of GoldyMarg and GaoGaiGar in the Brave Series anime The King of Braves GaoGaiGar. The attack they perform appears similar to the Shining Finger from G Gundam.
