"Fear is a friend whose presence is felt long after he's left."

As ominous as a storm cloud and as chilling as a winter breeze. Grim and gloomy, Dreadwind always acts as if his best friend just became permanently inoperative. Equipped with two thermal melters and two air-to-air missiles. Combines with Darkwing to form Dreadwing.

Dreadwind is the proverbial "deactivation of the party," a mournful presence always first to look on the bleak side of things. Grim and gloomy, he always acts as if his best friend has become permanently inoperative. Most other Decepticons avoid him like the plague, knowing that however buoyant their mood, Dreadwind is sure to bring them to Earth with a bump! As ominous as a storm cloud and as chilling as a winter breeze, Dreadwind somehow manages to convey his doom-laden message when he's in battle, even in jet mode! Foes have been known to feel despair at Dreadwind's approach, even at a vast distance. Dreadwind doesn't appreciate the advantage this gives him in battle; it just serves to further depress him. He's been known to wade through a battlefield, blasting Autobots and shouting, "Why does no one like me?" But Dreadwind has been known to come close to revelling (in his own low-key way) in the carnage he wreaks, knowing that perhaps his only true friend is fear. He sees it in the visual receptors of enemies and feels slightly better himself. Though the two profess to hate each other, and certainly detest combining to form Dreadwing, Dreadwind and Darkwing are the perfect partners in crime, almost trying to outdo each other in the bleakness stakes.

The same cannot be said of Dreadwind's binary-bonded Nebulon component, Hi-Test. He's a thrill-seeking, overachieving perfectionist who can't understand Dreadwind at all! How can he be so gloomy when there's so much wonderful badness in the world? Hi-Test does his best to bully Dreadwind into enjoying himself, or at the very least concentrating his morose mind on the job at hand.


  • Liberated, along with Darkwing, Snapdragon and other Decepticon inmates, from Autobot prison facility P-19170167 on a volcanic world during its final crumbling days amidst a riot. Gone from one terrible assignment to another so consequently has moaned about it ever since, especially hates to moan about the old days whenever he runs into Quickswitch who was one of the jailors.
  • In 2030 Dreadwind, along with his partner Darkwing, were "volunteered" to undergo a new experimental procedure somewhat similar to the Headmasters and Targetmasters. The experiment, though successful, had terrible consequences: it left him with yet another cheery partner (Hi-Test), to make his misery even greater than before.
  • In early 2031 Dreadwind was deceived by Hi-Test into turning up to a contest for a position of leadership. He had thought he was there to watch so he'd know who was going to be forcing him to do stuff next, however he was lead out onto the field of battle just in time for the start. Tragedy after calamity befell his attempts to seek friendship and simulated death culminating in him rising above all other contenders and becoming the most depressed Air Commander ever. It didn't last long after a few months Galvatron realised that the reason he'd heard no complaints or praises was because he wasn't actually doing anything worth commenting on, in fact most of his troops thought that Darkwing was in command.



Life? Don't talk to him about life.

  • Darkwing's page was made right away by fans of his. Dreadwind, on the other hand, was forgotten about and had to make his page himself, when it became apparent that no one else was going to.
  • The only good Deviantart fanart of Dreadwind by himself turned out to actually be a mistake. It was of Darkwing and the artist had just mislabelled it. After other users informed the artist of his error he realized he didn't really like Dreadwind after all.
  • Dreadwind is not Dirge. Dirge has fear jets.
  • Dreadwind has a surprisingly high INT stat. Don't talk to him about life.
  • Hi-Test is a blonde haired, blue eyed and most importantly has normal skin tones, take that funny skinned Nebulons!
  • Though he might not look or sound like it Hi-Test is a scientist and as such was instrumental in development and application of the Powermaster process, just don't ask where he got some of his background energy research.
  • Although being partnered with Dreadwind and being made to spend a great deal of time around him Hi-Test has not been effected by the eternal gloom that surrounds him, perhaps due to some sort of accidental immunity from the Powermaster process, he has however picked up the affectation of sighing before explaining things to others.
