Rampage is a Maximal or Predacon from the Beast Wars portion of the Generation 1continuity family.

Rampage (also known as Protoform X) is the awful result of scientific experimentation gone awry. He is a serial killer and cannibal, with an immortal spark that ensures his twisted brand of horror and misery will live on as long as he does (forever, presumably). Rampage detects and draws strength from the emotions of others, literally feeding on the pain and suffering he causes. As an unwilling conscript of the Predacons, he is contemptuous (at best) of the rest of his team, typically bored and uncooperative on missions, and he frequently sneaks off for his own purposes to try to relieve his boredom in the most cruel and horrible ways possible.

Is that fear you are feeling, Maximal? Yes.. my spark, it feeds on terror. Let it grow! Let it consume your circuitry! Feel it, yes, feel it! Feel the fear!

—Rampage, 'Bad Spark'

Despite the terror claws, not a gangsta.

If Rampage's titanic size, armor plating and psychopathic tendencies weren't horrifying enough, he is also capable of generating tidal waves, inducing earthquakes and triggering landslides with his 'terror claws', while his ever-dreaded galva-conductors allow him to unleash deadly electrical discharges. With this immense arsenal available to him, he prefers to use his gatling cannon as a way to finish off his opponents. Rampage toy bio

This is a great way to work out.

Protoform X was a Maximal experiment to recreate Starscream's mutant, immortal spark. Though arguably successful in this regard, the creation was unstable. Bad Spark In point of fact, he was criminally insane. He was held at Colony Omicron but soon escaped, killing all of its inhabitants save a lone security officer, Depth Charge. After four stellar cycles of chasing the killer, Depth Charge finally captured him and brought him back to Cybertron Deep Metal - but not before Protoform X destroyed Starbase Rugby and devoured an unknown number of the inhabitants. Nemesis Part 1 Rather than destroy him, Maximal Elders had Protoform X placed into a stasis pod aboard an exploration vessel, the Axalon. They instructed its commander, Optimus Primal, to dump him on some barren world in deep space.

Protoform X was among the stasis pods jettisoned by Optimus when the Axalon was damaged by Megatron's Predacons, and only fell out of orbit far into the Beast Wars. Battle near his stasis pod shocked him into activation, and he promptly set out to terrorize all nearby Transformers, rending Tarantulas limb from limb and stalking Blackarachnia and Silverbolt. (All right, whose bright idea was it to allow the homicidal maniac to keep his weapons!?) X seemed unstoppable at first, but when one of Silverbolt's missiles jammed his tank treads as he climbed up a mountainside, he lost his grip and tumbled down the rock face in pieces.

Attack my weak point for massive damage.

As Protoform X lay immobilized, Megatron arrived and, using a blade of pure energon, removed a portion of his indestructible spark. Megatron then had him brought back to the Predacon base and repaired. When X attempted to turn his weapons on his 'savior', Megatron revealed that he held half of X's spark in a special cage lined with energon crystals, allowing him to torture the beast at will. Megatron thus welcomed him into the Predacon fold, dubbing him 'Rampage'. Bad Spark

Rampage made no secret of his hatred for his new 'master', anticipating the arrival of Maximal reinforcements from Cybertron, and the demise Megatron would surely receive as a result. Megatron had other plans in motion, using Rampage's weaponry to destroy a mountain, proving that the future recorded on the Golden Disk was mutable. Rampage's services were further pressed into use when the Predacons assaulted a valley full of protohumans, however his contribution came to an end when Dinobot forcibly inserted Waspinator into his main gun with predictable results. Code of Hero

None shall hurt you now. Come with me, come. I will protect you.. I am your friend. Your only friend.Rampage convinces Transmutate to follow him, 'Transmutate'
'If you guys don't cut it out, I'm taking my Transmutate and going home!'

Though a violent sociopath, Rampage was not without compassion. After an attempt by him to regain his spark fragment failed, Rampage encountered a twisted protoform which he dubbed Transmutate. He quickly befriended it and attempted to have it inducted into the Predacons. Though Megatron ordered the creature destroyed, Rampage persevered with trying to make it a useful addition to the Predacon forces. He became possessive enough to viciously fight with Silverbolt over it. When Transmutate was killed by this fight, Rampage bellowed in grief. Transmutate

Rampage was a major component of the assault on the Axalon when it appeared as though the Maximals were going to receive reinforcements from Cybertron. The Predacons were driven off by an invisible force—the cloaked Transwarp cruiser flown by Ravage. The cruiser would later be a part of a strike on the Predacon base, during which Rampage unleashed a barrage of missiles on it. Ravage judged the attack 'impressive', and responded by using the ship's weapons to blow Rampage to pieces. The Agenda (Part 1) Rampage, of course, survived to lead yet another attack on the Axalon. Quickstrike rode triumphantly into battle on back of Rampage's tank mode.. until an auto-gun knocked him off, and Rampage uncaringly drove straight over him. The battle ended when Rattrap took out the Transwarp cruiser—Rampage managed to outrun the crashing ship and laughed in triumph.. only for the still-armed missile on top of the ship to launch in his face. The Agenda (Part III)

At Megatron's call to arms, a badly-charred Rampage managed to pull himself together and began trying to pull the Axalon from its perch, with the aid of a large number of arachnoids. He finally met his match in battle when the newly reformatted Optimus Primal attacked him. The huge Maximal leader simply shoved him aside, but Rampage had the last laugh as his deflected missile sent the Maximal base plunging into the lake. Cackling, Rampage disappeared into the lake after it. Optimal Situation

Oh, BABY!

Later, Depth Charge arrived on prehistoric Earth with the single-minded goal of destroying Rampage. Rampage was beside himself with joy, eager for revenge on his old 'playmate'. Depth Charge's loss at Colony Omicron had embittered him, and Rampage used this emotional wound to torment the Maximal. In the end, Depth Charge got the upper hand, and may well have ended the feud then and there if not for the intervention of Quickstrike, which allowed Rampage to sneak away and destroy Depth Charge's ship. Deep Metal Rampage soon met his old enemy again when Rattrap descended to the bottom of the lake to retrieve the Sentinel module from the wreckage of the Axalon. Depth Charge had the upper hand in the battle, but Rampage escaped death when Silverbolt argued with Depth Charge over his commitment to the Maximals. Changing of the Guard

While the bulk of the Maximal forces were distracted by Megatron's Cyber raptors out in the field, Rampage accompanied the Predacon leader in an assault against the Maximals' home base. Though the Predacons nearly took control of the Ark, Depth Charge arrived at the last moment and drove them back. Cutting Edge

When Megatron created Dinobot II, he used Rampage's spark fragment to form the core of the new Predacon, who likewise retained the ability to torture Rampage into continued loyalty with it. Naturally, Rampage was filled with fury and disgust at sharing his spark with a 'half brother'. Dinobot was able to use the spark fragment to keep Rampage in line, and the two 'brothers' took part in the interrogation of Depth Charge after the Transmetal driver went missing. When they were attacked by a strange feral beast, Rampage and Dinobot inadvertently blasted each other. Feral Scream Part 1

'I'd just like to thank all the little people I had to step on to get here.'

Rampage would go on to have a second clash with Silverbolt, targeting him when he was filled with grief and rage over Blackarachnia's death; he'd have killed him easily if Blackarachnia hadn't suddenly become alive again and beaten him up. Crossing the Rubicon He almost got his revenge when Megatron deliberately gave Blackarachnia to him, and was clearly having fun torturing her before she was able to overpower him. Master Blaster Following Tigerhawk's destruction of the Predacon base, Rampage and Dinobot were blown away by one strike from the Vok emissary. Other Victories

THERE CAN BE ONLY..NONE!

While Megatron was retrieving the submerged Decepticon craft Nemesis, Depth Charge met Rampage in battle one last time on the ocean floor. At the battle's climax, Rampage allowed Depth Charge to kill him with a shard of raw Energon, resulting in a fantastic explosion which destroyed both. Rampage won even in death, laughing maniacally in triumph as Depth Charge made the final, stabbing blow. Nemesis Part 1

3H comics

Soon after Megatron acquired his dragon body, a temporal disruption drew the attention of both the Maximals and Predacons to a remote canyon, where Rampage and his fellow Predacons met their foes. The Maximals were losing, having been fought into a corner, when suddenly the battle was interrupted. The Dark Essence—the life force of Unicron—had possessed the newcomer Windrazor, the source of the temporal disruption. Rampage and the others were immobilized by Unicron's psionic force blasts, and the merged creature advanced on the Maximals. Paradox

These events would soon be retroactively erased from Rampage's timeline with the efforts of the legendary Covenant. Terminus

Timelines

The Maximals should consider making their scandalous super-secret projects a little smaller.

While preparing for a deep-space exploration mission, the Maximal crew of the Axalon stopped for a few weeks at a space station. Here, Rhinox helped acquire a mysterious complement to their cargo, a very large protoform branded with an X. The Axalon was ordered to dispose of 'Protoform X' on a barren moon somewhere in the Alpha Quadrant. However, before its captain, Optimus Primal, was able to explain the circumstances fully to his crew, they were suddenly under even newer orders to pursue a stolen Predacon ship, the Darksyde. Subsequently, the Axalon followed the Darksyde through a transwarp portal and crash-landed on a mysterious planet. Dawn of Future's Past

Waspscream continuity

In Primax 208.06 Zeta, Protoform X was discovered, released, and pressed into service by Waspscream, though not before it offlined Quickstrike. Traveling with Waspscream's Predacon crew back to the future Cybertron, Protoform X and some of his comrades survived the transformation virus that the escaped Megatron had unleashed upon Cybertron. Waspscream's surviving crew made their way to the Oracle, who granted them technorganic forms. They proceeded to wage a valiant Spark War against Megatron's Vehicons. Many sparks flew, however, when Protoform X and returning Maximal spacefarer Depth Charge had to work together. Eventually, the Predacons and other resistance groups triumphed over the Vehicons.

Beast Wars Metals manga

¿Estás pensando en la inmortalidad del cangrejo?

The twisted product of a Maximal experiment to create an immortal spark, Rampage was born a vampiric monster of incredible regenerative capability who consumed the sparks of others. Sealed away within a stasis pod, he was loaded onto the Axalon for disposal, but partway into the voyage, he escaped and slaughtered the crew, causing the ship to crash on the planet Energoa. The crash drew the attention of Optimus Primal's Maximals, who were stranded on the planet fighting the Beast Wars at the time, and they investigated the ship, which had become submerged in the ocean. Rampage attacked Rattrap and Airazor just as they discovered his empty pod, eating Rattrap's tail and almost consuming Airazor, before Primal arrived and freed her by severing Rampage's arm. Regrowing the limb, Rampage engaged Primal, seizing him with his abdomen-mouth and forcing him to hack his own arm off to escape.

Primal tried a desperate ploy to take the monster down, stuffing a demolition charge in his head and allowing Rampage to eat it; Primal survived by shifting to beast mode, and though it momentarily seemed the gambit had succeeded, Rampage burst out of the waters in crab mode, grabbed Primal, and dragged him off into the ocean. Using the ship's still-functioning weaponry, Rattrap and Airazor detonated an underwater volcano beneath the pair, creating a shockwave that Primal was then able to ride with his hoverboard, carrying Rampage out of the water and into the air. Primal then lopped off his remaining arm to escape Rampage's grip, disengaged his board, and jammed it into the monster's mouth, leaving it to carry Rampage up into space, stranding him in Energoa's orbit. Beast Wars Metals #2

Sometime later, when the Predacon leader Megatron fused himself with his Decepticon predecessor to upgrade himself, the energy discharge from the fusion targeted Rampage, still floating in orbit, and blew him to bits. The sparks of his victims were released from his body, and used by Megatron to reanimate several of his fallen Predacon warriors. Beast Wars Metals #5

Beast Wars: Uprising

On an alternate Cybertron, the scientist known as Deluge saw the value of truly unique sparks such as the Point One Percenters. He recognized the need for such powerful warriors in battle with Unicron and other threats that inevitably arose to unite the Cybertronians in a single goal. His work was supported for a time, but when peace was declared, it was no longer deemed necessary. Deluge disagreed, and took it upon himself to continue his work with the proto-races, altering several protoforms to produce Point One Percenters in the new generation. The Inexorable March

'Hello, Clarice..'

One such success managed to create an inextinguishable spark that mimicked the properties of Starscream's lifeforce, but the result was a creature who was consumed with hate and power and an undying taste for violence. Appalled, 'Protoform X' was locked away, hoping no one would ever discover him. Instead, inevitably, Protoform X burst free, leaving piles of tortured bodies in his wake. Zeus arrhenothelus. This outburst inspired the name 'Rampage', and the creature was bested only by the bounty hunter Depth Charge, who brought him to justice. Rampage's profile in Club magazine #55

Rampage was being held in the Ferromax Detention Center when he was witness to Dynobot's jailbreak. He sensed great sorrow and fury in one of Dynobot's rescuers, and as she left with Dynobot and the others, Rampage encouraged her from his cell to embrace these feelings. Prologue Eventually he was transferred to the prison ship Claustrum, Intersectionality where he was eventually flushed out of the airlock and crashed down on the dwarf planet LGC-8803. Regenerating, he began to hallucinate, but was convinced he was not alone. He followed what appeared to be tracks Paranoia and eventually found Trans-Mutate, who'd also been stranded there. Perception Though Rampage was unaware, Trans-Mutate was his 'sister', a fellow Point One Percenter created by Deluge. The Inexorable March

By that point he was so low on energy he collapsed mid-speech, and she had to help him by providing power from the navicomp she'd salvaged. While still debating how to survive, they came under attack from Bruton and Medusa. Despite Rampage putting up a decent fight, he and Trans-Mutate were rendered unconscious and presented to Lord Imperious Delirious. Kindred

The Destructon leader provided the pair with energon and explained the origins of himself and his friends, inviting Trans-Mutate and Rampage to join them. Though Rampage was beginning to feel that the Destructons were his kin, Trans-Mutate pointed out the inconsistencies in Lord Imperious Delirious's story and insisted they should leave. Lord Imperious Delirious responded with Delirious Fire. Delirious

Though Rampage was sunk into an endless torture, reliving his repeated deaths at the hands of Maximal scientists, he managed to reach out to Trans-Mutate, stuck in her own private hell, and help her pull herself together enough to use her power. Free of Delirious's illusions, the pair defeated Bruton and Medusa. The Destructons opted to leave Rampage and Trans-Mutate to be picked up by whoever answered the distress call Delirious had sent to Cybertron. Clarity

Help soon arrived in the form of the Dinosaur. The Destructons attacked the ship on arrival, and then attacked the crew when they reached the ground. Rampage was absent for much of that, scouting around for their presence. He soon returned to his and Trans-Mutate's dwelling to find her talking with a group of Predacons. Rampage filled them in on what had been happening. Once made aware of their nature, Hard Head offered to let Rampage and Trans-Mutate hide aboard their ship until they reached somewhere more pleasant. As they talked, everyone realized Imperious had lured the Cybertronians to the planet in order to gain access to their ship.

Rampage joined with the ragtag crew to fight Delirious. During the fight, Rampage was hit by Bruton's Confusion Club, and he began lashing out at his erstwhile allies, until he managed to snap out of it, turning into his tank mode and destroying Bruton. His attempt to do this to Imperious didn't work as well, temporarily reducing Rampage to a charred wreck. On recovering, he came too to find Delirious trying to override the shuttle controls, and tried rushing him, only to be blasted with Delirious's Delirious Fire. While distracted, Rampage was bound, and Hard Head taken away by the Destructon.

Tmnt Raph S Rampage 2

Once out of sight, Delirious began violently removing Hard Head's spark, which the others could hear. Rampage felt jealousy for Hard Head's situation. With some help from Crazybolt, everyone managed to get free, only to find Delirious had implanted Bruton into Hard Head's body. Bruton then used the former Predacon's abilities to attack everyone, but Rampage took the blast. He recovered just as Delirious got into the shuttle, leaping onto it as it took off. Rampage managed to surprise Delirious, sending the craft down, but was soon overpowered and lost his gun. In desperation, Rampage used his Galva-conductors to fry both of them, then used the momentary distraction to tear Imperious' head off. This left Rampage on a ship hurtling toward the ground, which he was okay with. And then someone went and activated a tractor beam which softened the crash.

Once the situation was over, Rampage went with some of the Dinosaur's crew back to Cybertron. Intersectionality Their return was not exactly graceful, with their shuttle crash-landing in the middle of Builder-controlled territory. Making their way through the warzone to link up with the Resistance, Rampage began finding himself developing an odd attachment to the Predacon crew. After several orbital cycles, they managed to join the Resistance. Rampage took an immediate dislike to pretty much damn near everyone in it, except for Preditron, and stuck with the ex-Dinosaur crew when they went on their first mission, followed by their second, and then third and fourth, even as he felt helping the Resistance was a betrayal of his very being.

When the Beast Upgrade came around, Rampage took on a decapodian alternate mode, still sticking with Magmatron's crew. He was with them when they were sent to Proximax to take out the traitor Snapper as he was being transferred to Iacon, ambushing the convoy on the Hoist Metrospan. Rampage found himself brawling with Buckethead, but their fight was interrupted by the arrival of twointerlopers, one of whom insisted they were all on the same side. Annoyed and outnumbered, Rampage decided to just the destroy the bridge they were all standing on, sending all five mechanoids plummeting into the depths of Cybertron.

When Rampage came to, it was as one of the interlopers was kicking him, while the other asked her to stop, claiming Rampage was needed, something that irked him mightily. However, when Overshoot insisted everyone needed to work together and go further down, Rampage still went along, even helping carry Snapper on his back until they reached their destination, which turned out to be the Oracle, warning them of a scheme of the Antares Eight to antagonise humanity. Rampage found the idea of helping humans hilarious, but went along with the idea anyway, finding something about doing the Oracle's work.. fitting. By the time the motley crew of 'ex-bots' reached the surface, their intended targets were already attacking a nearby hyperwave caster tower. Rampage fought with the otherworldly cyborgs, until one of their number captured Stiletto, forcing the others to surrender, much to Rampage's disgruntlement. Then one of the cyborgs executed Overshoot. Acting quickly, Rampage grabbed Buckethead and Snapper and hurled himself off the tower. Though the impact of his landing killed him, he quickly recovered, much to his allies' alarm and his continuing irritation. After he recovered, Snapper suggested the Builder and proto-former gather their allies, who were still nearby and engaged in their own skirmish.

Rampage and Buckethead made their way to Sights & Sounds Casino, splitting up to convince their respective teammates to stop fighting and help deal with the Antares Eight, Rampage identifying himself to Archadis and 'persuading' the Predacon to take him to Magmatron in his own inimitable style. Despite himself, Rampage asked Magmatron for help, feeling that he would naturally be rejected, only for Magmatron to instead ask where they were going.

The ragtag Predacon team made their way back to the Proximax tower, only for the alien cyborgs to summon allies of their own, who had a combiner form. While Buckethead and her teammates dealt with it, Rampage tussled with Klaws, until Monsterous was defeated, at which point Klaws fled, leaving only one of the Antares Eight to deal with. Unfortunately, he was waiting for them, and activated a quantumite trap which disabled Rampage and Snapper, but not Stiletto, who'd been pre-warned by Overshoot's ghost, and she was able to disable the trap, before killing Creepy to prevent him leveraging his knowledge into survival. Rampage was still recovering when two humans showed up, their casual arrogance angering the proto-former enough to rouse him to his feet, until Stiletto restrained him. Angered, Rampage handed over the human object that had drawn their attention and told them to leave, which they did.

In the aftermath, the various factions gathered in Sights and Sounds to discuss terms, which soon turned in arguing until Rampage silenced everyone by declaring Snapper was under his protection, and that he was done with the Resistance, having found a purpose in working with the Ex-Bots.

Derailment

One year after the Uprising, Rampage located his creator Deluge in Ultrix. They shared a surprisingly calm conversation as Deluge related his reasons for creating Rampage in the first place. The old scientist believed his work justified, especially considering Rampage's key role during the Vehicon Apocalypse. Rampage could not forgive the pain he had suffered in life, or the hundreds of victims who died in failed experiments leading up to his creation. He had poisoned the bottle of Visco the two shared during their talk, a dose of cyber venom that promised a drawn out and painful death over the next few megacycles. As Deluge knowingly prepared for his death and congratulated Rampage on his revenge, Protoform X decided to show mercy. Unbidden, he chose to shoot Deluge dead point blank with his rocket launcher rather than allow the scientist to suffer needlessly. The Inexorable March

Tens of thousands of years later, knowledge of 'Protoform X' had passed out of knowledge, with some historians believing no bot could have survived the K-Bomb blast, and that there must have been more than one. The illustrious Pontiff General Rampage helped clear up the matter by saying there never was a Protoform X, and that the Resistance, led by that awful Lio Convoy, simply drafted poor saps, rigged them with bombs, and called them Profoform X as a cover-up for their own crimes.

A Seafood Louis eater's worst nightmare.
  • Rampage (Ultra Class Transmetal, 1998)
    • Japanese ID number:D-41
    • Accessories: Spring-loaded triple barrel missile launcher, 3 missiles and 1 rifle
Beast Wars Rampage transforms into a Transmetal king crab, featuring fully articulated crab legs and pincers that can open, close and be posed in a variety of angles through the use of ratcheting joints. His triple-barreled Gatling missile launcher is stored on the underside of the beast mode. As a Transmetal, Rampage has a third 'vehicle' mode, transforming rather elaborately into a tank with rubber treads that unfold from inside his claws and fit over a road wheel network formed from his crab legs that allows them to really roll. His missile launcher flips out to face forward for this mode, and rolling the figure forward spins its wheel, rotating the launcher and auto-firing any or all of its three missiles.
In robot mode, Rampage is an imposingly large figure with a decent level of articulation due to his ball joints, but because he wears most of his beast mode as a sort of backpack, he is quite back-heavy (his cartoon model would even move his crab legs from their cumbersome position on his forearms to his shoulder pads). In addition to his missile launcher, he is armed with a small laser rifle and can hold both weapons in his hands. The small rifle and the launcher's three missiles can store inside his claws while he is in his alternate modes.
Rampage was available with either orange or more show-accurate silver paint applications on his head and chest, but it is presently unclear which variant came first; contradictory anecdotal accounts are all we have to go on. Curiously, it took about fifteen years before the silver variant was widely known about.[1]
The Japanese Beast Wars Metals release of the figure features noticeably different colors, replacing the orange details and gradient on his robot mode face, chest and limbs with silver, and more clearly delineating the 'X' on his crab carapace by painting it purple. Most impressively, the robot head and limbs are changed from opaque orangey-red to translucent blood-red plastic.
This toy was later redecoed into the BotCon 2000-exclusiveShokaract.

Stickers on the shipping box refer to the figure as 'Maximal Rampage'; however, the figure itself features a unique Protoform X insignia between his chestplates.

Notes

  • According to the series background materials published in the Beast Wars Universe guidebook, Rampage's body was supposed to have been constructed out of leftover Generation 1-era technology seen in the Great War due to the lack of know-how for protoform technology. How this jibes with his status as 'Protoform X' is anyone's guess.
  • Rampage's personality was largely inspired by fictional genius psychiatrist and cannibalistic serial killer Dr. Hannibal Lecter, demonstrated by many of his psychological warfare involving devouring his prey, albeit in a 'refined' manner, unlike the Predacons' other resident cannibal.
  • No explanation is ever given for why energon suddenly kills Rampage, even though Megatron's been poking his spark with it ever since he appeared. The fact that the energon was unstable might have had something to do with it, or the degree it was stabbed into the spark.
  • Like nearly all non-toy Kreons, Kreon Rampage is made from existing Kre-O parts. He uses the Knock Out helmet with extensive paint details, and carries the bazooka weapon introduced in the Kre-O Battleship series. His deco/paint scheme appears to be a blend between the original's show model (particularly the head) and the western version of the toy (particularly in the use of yellow/gold detailing on the body).
  • In the Japanese dub of Beast Wars, Rampage talks with a 'tough' Kansai accent. This involves ending sentences with '-jai!' which is a region-specific mutation of the more widely used '-dayo!' (a past tense expression of emphasis, considered casual or impolite). In popular Japanese media, it is used mostly for street punks, tough guys and other ne'er-do-wells; sort of the equivalent of giving an American character a Brooklyn accent.
