Impatient, impulsive, and actually sometimes kind of annoying, HOT SHOT is young, but full of potential. OPTIMUS PRIME sees in him the qualities of a great leader, and has taken it upon himself to mentor the young warrior in the ways of command. His MINI-CON partner JOLT tries his best to keep his erratic behavior under control, but HOT SHOT is quite skilled in ignoring the voice of reason. He's also obsessed with something called JaAm, which most AUTOBOTS think is some obscure fuel source, but no one knows for sure.

Hot Shot was originally intended to have dual arm-mounted missile launchers, but these were removed from the final version due to budget restrictions. Takara-Tomy's version released in their own Transformers Henkei line still includes them, though.
