- "Win if you can, lose if you have to, but always have fun!"
Roadhead is strong, tough, and loyal to a fault. Unfortunately, what he has in strength, he utterly lacks in common sense. It's not that he's stupid, per se, but to Roadhead, life is one big party, and anything that tries to keep him from having a good time is an obstacle to be rolled over or shoved aside. Fortunately for him, Roadhead is very very good at shoving. When he isn't fighting or running over things, he's smashing plates over his head or shooting himself in the face. Sure, it hurts, and it doesn't make much sense, but as long as his friends are having a good time, so is he. Hardcore and Recharge often find themselves working overtime to keep Roadhead from doing anything particularly dangerous or offensive, like lubricating statues in a public park, or seeing how far he can throw himself. Aside from his predilection towards engaging in ridiculous feats of self-injury, Roadhead is perhaps the archetypical "gentle giant," slow to anger, kind to those smaller than himself, but extremely powerful when roused.
Roadhead's truck mode is not particularly fast or agile, but it is extremely capable of handling steep and uneven terrain. Roadhead is a physical powerhouse in robot mode, but his long fuse and funloving demeanor means he rarely finds himself in situations requiring violence. He is more likely to use his strength to carry Hardcore and Recharge home from a night of drinking than to smash Decepticons. He carries a large, but not particularly effective blaster pistol, affectionately dubbed "DESTROY MONARCH." The gun is generally for show, however, as he is a remarkably poor shot, and more likely to accidentally blow off his own fingertip than dispatch an enemy.
Roadhead is his own worst enemy. His tendency to entertain his teammates at the expense of his own safety often results in him suffering worse injuries than he would receive from the Decepticons. Some of his fellow Autobots worry about his mental state, fearing that his self-destructive habits are symptoms of a deeper problem. Unfortunately, other Autobots find his antics incredibly amusing, and encourage him into increasingly dangerous stunts.
