Explanation of the conversion: Silverbolt III's claw/bite attack only works in beast form where his knives and
missiles only work in robot form.
History: Silverbolt III was one of the protoforms from the Maximal ship called the Axalon commanded by
Optimus Primal, which chased the Predacon
criminal Megatron II through transwarp space after the theft of the Golden Disc. The
Maximals and Predacons crashed on prehistoric Earth, where high energon levels threatened to destroy the crew unless they
adopted organic alternate modes (Beast Wars Part 1).
The Axalon's cargo of Maximal protoforms in stasis pods had been launched into orbit
before the crash, but eventually Silverbolt III's pod fell to Earth, along with the pod of Quickstrike. Damaged in planetfall,
Quickstrike and Silverbolt III's pods mixed up the genetic scans of local life forms when formatting them, causing them to
emerged in bizarre hybrid forms. Silverbolt III's beast mode is a combination of eagle and wolf. Discovered by
Megatron II, the new Maximals were convinced they were Predacons. Although they believed Megatron II at first,
Silverbolt III found he didn't fit in with the Predacons. In an attack on the Maximal base Silverbolt III quickly learned he
had more in common with the Maximals and switched sides, but the violent Quickstike eagerly remained with the Predacons
(Coming of the Fuzors Part 1 & 2).
''I think my name is... Silverbolt. Yes, pure, strong, and... and fast!'' - Silverbolt III
Eventually Silverbolt III fell in love with Blackarachnia, another Maximal protoform who had joined the Predacons.
She loved him too, and eventually switched sides as well.
''I know what you're feeling. You can't decide if you want to kiss me... or kill me.'' - Silverbolt III
''I'm a black widow, I can do both.'' - Blackarachnia
As Silverbolt III and Cheetor continued to clash over their attraction to Blackarachnia, Rattrap discovered a copy of
Dinobot's the personal datatracks. Deciding to attempt to use them to bring Dinobot back to life in the body of his
clone Dinobot II, Rattrap recruited Depth Charge to hunt down Dinobot II. Although successful in finding Dinobot II and
uploading the datatracks, Dinobot II resisted being taken over by the new personality. Dinobot II would have
killed Rattrap and Depth Charge if it wasn't for the timely help of Rhinox (Dark Glass).
After Megatron II was captured, Silverbolt III returned with the other surviving Maximals to Cybertron on board an
Autobot shuttle (Nemesis Part 2).
On the way back to Cybertron Megatron II escaped into transwarp space, and arrived on Cybertron years before the Maximals.
Megatron II conquored Cybertron and when the Maximals arrived he captured Silverbolt III and Rhinox and removed their
sparks. Optimus Primal, Rattrap, Cheetor and Blackarachnia escaped, but were
infected with a transformation blocking virus which stripped them of their transmetal enhancements and left them
glitching in beast mode, suffering from memory loss. Fleeing deep within Cybertron Optimus Primal was contacted by
Vector Sigma and was reformatted into a techno-organic form. He then reformatted his companions.
In an attempt to learn what had happened on Cybertron the Maximals raided the Cybertron Archives, but found it empty.
Megatron II's diagnostic drone continued to remove the organic elements from Megatron II's body, however it continued to
fail. Blackarachnia started to have visions of Silverbolt III when she was in robot mode. Frustrated with how the Maximals
were eluding his drones, Megatron II used the sparks of Rhinox, Silverbolt III and Waspinator to create the Vehicon
Generals Tankor, Jetstorm IV and Thrust III. Rattrap and Blackarachnia first encountered the three Vehicon Generals when
looking for their ship, the Autobot shuttle Omega Delta, at a spaceport. Rattrap discovered that the Vehicons could only
track the Maximals in robot mode. When Blackarachnia accessed the shuttle records in an attempt to learn what happened
when the arrived on Cybertron, Megatron II attempted to read her memories and learn the location of the Maximal base, but
Rattrap saved her from revealing the information. Cornered by the Vehicon Generals, Optimus Primal and Cheetor
rescued their comrades as the shuttle was destroyed (Fires of The Past).
Trivia: On the Beast Wars television show, the voice of
Silverbolt III is played by actor Scott McNeil. Silverbolt III shouldn't
be confused with Silverbolt, an Aerialbot who turns into a jet, Silverbolt II, a Maximal who turns into an eagle, Silverbolt IV, the Japanese name of
Blurr II, or Silverbolt V, an Autobot Micromaster.
The toy for Silverbolt III is similar to that of the toy of Windrazor II and Transaformers: Universe Silverbolt. There was a Chinese made knockoff
of Silverbolt III which was white in color.
Powers: Silverbolt III is highly fuel efficient, brave, fast, tough and smart. In robot mode he can use his wing missiles or wield them in
his hands as knives. He can assume the form of a wolf/hawk hybrid which has powerful claws and a nasty bite. In either
mode he can fly with his feathered wings. He recovers from
damage quicker in beast mode and is better protected from high energon levels as well.
Weaknesses: Silverbolt III's heroic attitude and love for Blackarachnia can sometimes interfear with
completing his mission. In beast mode he lacks any ranged attacks. High energon fields can adversely effect Silverbolt III if he stays in robot form for too long. His animal
form is protected from high energon levels.
