Special Characteristics: Boy Genius
Though he was confined to a wheelchair, Chip Chase
was perhaps one of the Autobotís greatest friends during the first few
years after they were reactivated. Though
it is not known how this boy genius and the Autobotís first met (we
presume that Spike Witwicky might have known Chip, and introduced him to
the Autobot's), it is known that his first real adventure with them was
when Megatron attempted to gain the formula for Anti-Mater (a formula that
Chip had helped to perfect). Dr
Alkazar (the man that Chip helped to perfect the formula) sent it to Chip
for safe keeping when the Decepticonís broke into his lab.
Though Chip memorized the formula and then destroyed the disk that
it was saved on, he was still captured by the Decepticonís and forced to
give it to them. Chip, with a
little help from Spike helped to fix this mistake by activating an
override device on Thundercracker, and forced him to use Megatron to stop
the other Decepticonís.
This accomplishment was only the start for Chip.
Chip also helped the Autobotís create 2 new Dinobots (Snarl and
Swoop), track down the Decepticon Space Bridge and then go to Cybertron to
help break into Wheeljackís workshop to get a part to repair Optimus
Prime, aided the Autobotís in learning about Megatron's deception in his
gladiatorial type battle with Optimus Prime, helped to counteract the
effects of the Transfixatron (which trapped most of the Autobot's in vehicle
mode), and many more as well.
It is not known what happened to Chip between 1986 and 2005, but he will forever be known for his intellect, his bravery, and his friendship with the Autobotís in their fight against the Decepticonís.
