Downshift is a fast and courageous young Autobot. He relies on speed rather
than strength to get him out of tight spots when battling the Decepticons.
Although he is considered a good soldier by Optimus Prime and Hot Shot, he has
been warned about rushing into battle without a solid plan of attack. Hot Shot,
especially, can relate to this headstrong young Autobot and has vowed to mold
him into a mature and seasoned warrior.
