Hot Shot (ホットショット, Hotto Shotto) is an Autobot under the command of Rodimus Prime. He is a young, inexperienced bot who lives for speed. His quick motion has led him to strive to live life in the fast lane. This usually lands him right in the middle of a battle, carelessly acting without thinking. This also usually lands him in Red Alert's repair bay far more often than the rest of his team. This annoys Red Alert to no end, but Hot Shot wishes she would just lighten up a little. It's not the end of the world or anything, right?
As a pyrotechnician, his arms can convert into welding torches specialized for construction and repair. But, when duty calls, these tools also come in handy for barbecuing a bunch of no-good Decepti-creeps (or himself or his teammates, accidentally).
The otherwise brilliant Rodimus believes Hot Shot has the potential to become a great leader. We all have our blind spots.

Weapons & AbilitesEdit
In battle, he can activate flamethrowers on his arms, whose flames can burn hot enough to ignite Decepticon energy bolts.
At Megatron's orders, Decepticons from hidden corners of the galaxy attacked Autobot space bridge terminals. One such terminal was guarded by Rodimus Prime's team, which included Hot Shot. The terminal was under attack from Decepticons led by Strika, and despite Hot Shot's attempts to use his flamethrowers to vaporize her shots, one connected with his leg. He called for Red Alert, and after examining his busted leg, she told him it'd have to be amputated, but assured him that he'd receive a new one from Cybertron Service in 6-8 solar cycles. But before he could ask out for a second opinion, Spittor took out Red Alert, leaving Hot Shot in a state of shock as the rest of his team was disposed of.
