|Function: Super Warrior|
|"We stand as one, our will be done."|
The combined form of NIGHTBEAT and THUNDERCLASH, Nightclash is a near-perfect fusion of the minds of these two seasoned warriors. While feared on the battlefield for his immense strength, he is usually only sent into battle in the most extreme of circumstances, as his component robots are too important to risk being lost.
WEAPONS/ABILITIES: Nightclash combines the best aspects of Nightbeat and Thunderclash. In robot mode, he can use Thunderclash's jet engines as a jet pack, allowing him to fly in excess of 450 MPH. His strength surpasses that of even Megatron. He can use Nightbeat's stun gun and Thunderclash's plasma rifle, either individually or combined into a single weapon. He is able to transform into two distinct robot modes, each with it's own advantages. Usually, Thunderclash becomes the upper torso of Hyperdrive, as this grants the super robot greater strength and brute fighting ability.
WEAKNESSES: Special care has to be taken when combined to prevent Thunderclash from contracting Nightbeat's Cosmic Rust infection. When combined Nightbeat's suspicious, secretive nature and Thunderclash's more benign temperament can sometimes cause Nightclash to freeze with indecision. A precise hit at the two robots junction point can cause Nightclash to separate back into Thunderclash and Nightbeat.

Nightclash Additional Info
The working name for Nightclash was Hyperdrive - a homage to an unmade 1990s Transformer who would have belonged to a larger size class than the original Thunderclash. This idea did not pass with Hasbro, and so the name was changed to Nightclash, but one reference slipped through in the bio.
