First Comic/Show Appearance: None
Function: Jungle Warrior, Demolitions Expert
Temperamental & solitary, Bantor relishes his animalian fusion. Enhanced by the attributes of a baboon and tiger's instincts, he is a natural warrior in total flux with the ways of combat. Extremely versatile, Bantor combines the cunning patience of a tiger with the near demented frenzy of a baboon, deleting the need for ammunition in close range combat. Optimal Optimus first choice for recon demolition missions, Bantor can traverse deep into Predacon territory and escape undetected. Largely unknown by the enemy, his reputation for setting undetectable traps exceeds his identity, through his power ram head butt and right hook are widely considered devastating.
