Profile, Abilities and Weaknesses description taken from The Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye, comic series published by Dreamwave Comics in 2003.

Dogfight is a renegade who fights every bit as savagely as his Decepticon foes.  His personal favorite tactic is to bear down on an enemy jet until he can open fire on it nose-to-nose, a maneuver the unorthodox and wild Dogfight calls his "dance of death."  His spark burns with nothing but pure contempt for his enemies; Dogfight has never come into contact with a Decepticon whom he did not want to immediately and painfully dismantle.  Senior Autobots are disturbed by how closely Dogfight's tactics, though effective, mirror the Decepticons'.

Subject is an effective self-trained aerial warrior.  In jet mode, he can use his fusion-powered blowtorch cannons as weapons or as engine boosters.  He can also use the cannons in robot mode, where subject has above average strength and the ability to fly.

Subject's attitude makes him a poor team player.
