Decepticon reconnaissance officer.
Barricade has got a bit of a mouth on him. Whether it's smashing through an Autobot roadblock or hunting down his latest quarry, he rarely lets an opportunity to taunt, criticize or demoralize someone go by. And no, not even his fellow Decepticons are safe...not even Megatron. One would think this would mean a short end to his career, but apparently not. The Decepticon leader has taken to tolerating his loud mouth, perhaps due to his sheer effectiveness and tenacity in his job as an enforcer of Decepticon law, but possibly also because his scolding of the other Decepticons sometimes works in Megatron's favor.
Barricade's favorite tactic is taunting opponents until they start chasing him, and then leading them through hazardous areas that they don't have a chance of surviving, while he will escape without a scratch. As a hunter, he keeps his opponents off-guard and nervous by talking a lot, citing them with whatever crimes he thinks they've committed against the Decepticons.
Prior to Transformers: War
Barricade was a higher-up criminal in a planetwide crime cartel known as Malignus. When Barricade was needed, he would smash through any roadblock that stood in his way, earning him his name. Barricade main specialty, however, was scouting out for any potential threats to Malignus' operations. Barricade's known friends within the syndicate included Blackout, Bombshock, and Dualor. Malignus soon earned the attention of Megatron, who coerced the syndicate into integrating with the Decepticon movement, Barricade included. He was one of the selected few to join Megatron in searching for more energon once Cybertron ran out (including Starscream, Shockwave, Soundwave - his mini-cons Ravage, Laserbeak, and Frenzy; Thundercracker, and Skywarp).
