The blood-thirsty Foxtrot is a member of the Decepticon offshoot known as the Ronin. He and his fellow bounty hunters track down quarry for money, though Foxtrot just seems to like destruction; It's not for nothing that Forager has nicknamed him the "Trigger-Happy Terror". His other specialty is trickery, producing holo-cloaks and hologram projection discs which give him an edge in battle. You could say he's as cunning as a fox, which is incidentally the Earth animal he resembles. His alternate mode is a Cybertronian sports car.
Foxtrot was a member of the Ronin during the ill-fated mission at Athena, during which his plan to destroy the planet's moon in order to eliminate their target resulted in Deadlock destroying their ship. He and his teammates were arrested by the Autobots and imprisoned on board the Alchemor, later escaping when the ship crashed on Earth. Following Forager's capture by Bumblebee's team, Foxtrot and Stilts succeeded in taking over the Autobots' scrapyard base by utilizing holographic disguises and manage to thaw their teammate. While the trio were plotting to sell Team Bee and the other Decepticon prisoners, Drift=their old comrade turned Autobot-tricked them into thinking he was on their side. After he showed them a nearby Energon stash, they were taken in, and he was able to free the rest of the Autobots. Foxtrot and the other Ronin were soon captured and placed in stasis.
