|Function: Decepticon Thug
|"All hail mighty MEGATRON!"
LUGNUT has absolute faith in MEGATRON, and that makes him one of the most dangerous DECEPTICONS. He is fanatic in his support of the DECEPTICON cause, and unquestioning in following the orders of his commander. His dedication is backed up by incredible strength, and fighting skills that led to him be feared and respected across Cybertron. Each punch from his powerful hands carries the force of a small bomb, so the only way to survive a fight with him is to avoid ever letting him hit you. Unfortunately, he's almost as fast as he is strong.
* Known as the "Kaon Krusher" on Cybertron

Lugnut Additional Info
According to material published in issue #24 of the Transformers Collector's Club magazine, Lugnut is the consort of the Decepticon general Strika.
Lugnut's devastating punch attack was nicknamed the "Punch of Kill Everything" (or P.O.K.E. for short) by 2005 Boards member Beastbot X. The production team liked the idea so much that they decided to adopt it into the series somehow, and it was made canonical in IDW's Transformers Animated: The Arrival Issue #4.
Official Cartoon Network Press Release Bio
LUGNUT is more a force of nature than a DECEPTICON. MEGATRON’s fiercely loyal but none-too-bright attack dog. He would gladly follow his leader into the depths of hell. Of the DECEPTICONS, only LUGNUT refuses to believe that MEGATRON is gone for good. When we first meet him, LUGNUT has devoted his life to preserving his beloved leader’s memory and vanquishing his foes. LUGNUT deems himself and any other DECEPTICON unworthy to take the mantle of leadership. Personality-wise, LUGNUT comes across as a cross between a pit bull, a Klingon and a manic street preacher.
Robot Mode Power: LUGNUT is incredibly strong, the Hulk to BULKHEAD’s Thing. He also carries a payload of mega-bombs and can spew liquid napalm with laser-like accuracy. But he much prefers to rip things apart with his bare hands.
Vehicle Mode Appearance: Supersonic Bomber.
