Astrotrain loves to create confusion which is his specialty alongside triple changer abilities (two alt-modes). Cornering autobots in the dark and making them wonder if they are up against one Decepticon or two pleases him more than anything. He operates as the military transport of the Decepticons and flies other Decepticons around. Astrotrain does not appreciate his position as a military transport. He also has dreams of taking over Decepticons and commanding a massive army of train drones. Friends with fellow triple changer Blitzwing.
