|Function: Anarchist Road Warrior|
|"Fear is my ally."|
Vehicle to vehicle combat is something all TRANSFORMERS are skilled in, but with OIL SLICK, it's a particular specialty. He knows more about how to disable and destroy a vehicle than almost anyone else in the galaxy. He knows that if he can break down the robot inside, the vehicle will come screaching to a halt. Canisters attached to his sides dump special chemicals that unlock the deepest fears of any robot exposed to them, while at the same time rotting wheels and burning through axles. Once the vehicle mode is destroyed, OIL SLICK moves in close to finish off with his chain weapon.
* Talented chemist and mechanic

Oil Slick Additional Info
Oil Slick was designed entirely by Hasbro without the knowledge of the Cartoon Network team, hence, he was initially a non-show character. However, Marty Isenberg wrote a story for Transformers Animated Arrival that established some past for Oil Slick. Oil Slick is also set to appear in season 3 of Transformers Animated.
The TFCC club magazine also published a Generation 1 style tech spec for Oil Slick, which makes reference to his adaptation of weapons-grade cosmic rust as a gel (so probably a follow on to his initial experiments with a gas version of the plague in Animated Arrival #3). It also mentions that he is a genius specializing in chemical warfare.
