We wish to extend a special thanks to Cartoon Network PR Department for providing us with official character bios and information.

(Voiced by Bumber Robinson)

The “Joker” of the DECEPTICONS. An unpredictable “triple changer” multiple personality bot, driven mad by his constantly shifting appearance. He has three personalities, one for each face, and his power depends on the face: Icy, cold and calculating; Hothead, short tempered, volatile; and Random, completely bonkers. 

Robot Mode Power: BLITZWING is a “triple-changer”—that is, he has three modes (one robot, two vehicles). Plus he has three faces, each with its own personality. His power depends on which face he’s showing. Heat/flame, cold/ice or completely random. 

Vehicle Mode Appearance: Jet and Tank. 

Character description from package "tech spec":  Even by Decepticon standards, Blitzwing is totally insane.  He's got three distinct personalities packed into his cyberium-steel chassis, and he argues with himself almost as often as he argues with other Decepticons.  The only person he listens to without interrupting is Megatron, because all three of his personalities are terrified of the Decepticon commander.  He carries a superheater cannon and a hyperfrost emitter to burn or freeze his enemies.

Galactic Powers and Abilities:
> Sometimes changes to tank in midair, and crahses.
> Likes to freeze, then melt his opponents.
> Has trouble flying in a straight line. 

Other appearances: The original Blitzwing was released in 1985 and (along with Astrotrain) is one of the two original and first ever Decepticon Triple Changers.  As popular of a character as he was back in the G1 days, it's surprising that Blitzwing has made no other appearances in all of the Transformers Universe (aside from the 1987 decoy.)

Bibliography of significant appearances: First appearance (presumably with a) cybertron alternate mode (or modes?) was in the Animated Movie Intro: Transform and Roll Out.  He had a brief cameo appearance talking to Lockdown in episode 4 Thrill of the Hunt.  Along with his partner in crime, Lugnut, Blitzwing finally showed up and returned to prominance in episode 8 " Lost and Found"  Among core Decepticon characters Blitzwing plays a part most subsequent episodes but is especially prominent in Megatron Rising part 1 and part 2, 16 Mission Accomplished, 18 Velocity, 19 Rise of the Constructicons, 24 Sari, No One's Home, 25 and 26 A Bridge Too Close parts 1 and part 2.
