Skids is the member of the Autobots and the name used for several characters in Transformers. While a minor character in the Generation 1 cartoon, Skids was a more notable character in Marvel's the Transformers comics.


Skids first appeared in Quest for Survival, as part of a strike force sent to stop the Insecticons from ravaging a human farm, only to be defeated. Apparently injured in the battle, Skids was repaired by Hoist upon returning to Autobot Headquarters, where he responded incredulously to Bumblebee's report that he had retrieved robotic insecticide from the planet Floron III to deal with the Insecticon threat.

In Triple Takeover, Skids was part of a team sent to investigate bombs that were raining down on a city from a football stadium, which was caused by Blitzwing . Blitzwing had the stadium surrounded by a "Zone Defense" maze built by the Constructicons, and while attempting to traverse it, Skids crashed into Prowl and was driven over by Blitzwing in tank mode. Skids and the other Autobots' remains were then gathered by Scrapper, who built his personal throne out of them. These Autobots were soon rescued and quickly rebuilt, and helped battle Blitzwing, Astrotrain, Megatron and Devastator while they all tried to become Decepticon leader. 

Following that skirmish, Prowl opined that Optimus Prime was the greatest leader in the universe, which prompted himself, Skids, Bluestreak and Tracks to form themselves into a throne for Prime, which he politely declined.

Skids was characterised as the absent-minded warrior. Highly intelligent and always collecting data, Skids is nonetheless always daydreaming. He is a scientist first and foremost, and has made many valuable discoveries. Skids genuinely hates the war he finds himself caught up in, but for now is forced to continue in the Autobot army.


Skids carries a liquid nitrogen rifle with 600 foot range, and the twin electron blaster of 20,000 volts can short-circuit almost anything.
