Blades is a Transformer from the planet Cybertron. He is a member of the Protectobots, a team amongst the Autobots.


Action Force (British) continuity

After Optimus Prime's death, Grimlock became leader of the Autobots. However his style of leadership alienated many, with Blaster and Goldbug deserting and Blades was one of many other Autobots who found themselves sympathising. Grimlock sent all the other Autobots to search for Blaster and Goldbug. Blades located a Transformer life signal which led him to London, where he found the Action Force members Airtight, Barbecue, Bazooka, Flint and Scarlett in a sewer with architect Susan Hoffman investigating a metallic monster. Blades was attacked by the Action Force members who then realised the real monster was the Decepticon Megatron who downed Blades with a single blast.[1] Blades made his way to the surface where Megatron fought Action Force, Grimlock and Centurion.

Blades rescued the Action Force member Wild Bill when his Dragonfly XH-1 was shot down.[2] Flint ordered an airstrike to destroy Megatron, even though it would also destroy Grimlock, to the horror of Blades and Wild Bill.[3] Then Centurion told Blades his plan. Just before the strike hit Blades airdropped Centurion into the battle then pulled Grimlock free before the airstrike hit. Megatron and Centurion plunged into the Thames ablaze. Blades explained to Action Force that Centurion felt he was just regarded as an "ancient relic" and wanted to redeem himself in an ancient relic's last blaze of glory.[4]
