A diagram of the break.

The break was a classic tactic of starfighter combat that was used by starfighter pilots in order to shake off a pursuing enemy craft. The maneuver was utilized as soon as the pilot detected an enemy starfighter bearing down upon them, and consisted of a sharp turn taken in the direction of the incoming attack run. Ideally, this would then cause the enemy fighter to overshoot, thus putting them out of position for an effective follow-through.

However, there was still the possibility of the enemy achieving a snap shot—a shot taken in haste as a target passed quickly by one's front. There were other dangers, too, as the breaking craft could, in executing the maneuver, inadvertently put themselves into the sights of the attacking starfighter's wingmate; in addition, breaking too soon or too late also put the pilot at greater risk of being shot down.

This article is about the Beast Wars Neo Maximal. For the Energon Mini-Con, see Brake.
Break is a Maximal from the Beast Wars portion of the Generation One continuity family.
P-P-P-Penguin Power!

For a little guy, Break is full of endless and infective enthusiasm. Eager to prove himself and loving to fight, when he first heard that Big Convoy was selected to lead him and his teammates, his first action was to test Big Convoy’s power. He found out the hard way. Though a little rowdy, most of the time his heart is in the right place and he tends to be a big morale booster for his comrades. Break cares about his fellow Maximals and will risk his own existence to keep them safe. He fights with an intense drive for victory as well as a competitive drive against fellow teammate, Cohrada. The two Maximals argue constantly over who’s the stronger soldier.

Break functions best in cold "arctic" environments. He has a secondary Targetmaster gun mode that can be used by other Maximals.

Beast Wars Neo manga

IDW Beast Wars comics

Break serves as a member of the elite Maximal unit known as The Pack. After Razorbeast had prevented Magmatron from raising an army of Predacons using the protoforms of Earth's past The Pack were able to pick up his transwarp distress signal and Lio Convoy ordered them to man the ship and find Razorbeast. It appears Break is the navigator of the ship, and also enjoys trading verbal barbs with fellow Pack member Apache. The Ascending issue 2

Real helpful there, guys.

Upon arriving on prehistoric Earth, the rest of the Pack engaged the Predacons while Break apparently landed the ship. He later was seen, along with Stampy, to be heckling the Maximals that were trying to restrain the Angolmois-infected Razorbeast. The Ascending issue 3

In the battle with Shokaract, Break engaged his gun mode to give Mach Kick some extra firepower. The Ascending issue 4

Toys

Beast Wars Neo

March of the Shellformers.
  • Break (Basic, 1999)
    • Japanese ID number: C-32
    • Accessories: Missile
Break transforms into an emperor penguin, and is probably the ultimate shellformer; you can remove every piece of penguin from him (the parts on his arms require a screwdriver, admittedly) and still have a fully-functional, four-limbed robot. He has a spring-loaded missile launcher attached to his right arm. He also his a third (highly questionable) "gun" mode that can be held by larger Transformers. Some fans have affectionately called this the "super-mega-poop-attack!", as the missile fires from the penguin's rear.
  • Break vs Dead End (Vs pack, 1999)
    • Japanese ID number: VS-32
Break was available both as an individual and in a versus-pack with Dead End, another shellformer. The toys are identical to their individual-box releases.


Trivia

  • Break sounds exactly like Naruto. While some similarity is to be expected since Junko Takeuchi provides the voice for both characters... Break's intonation, accent, and attitude are notably identical to the later character.
  • The IDW comics depict Break's penguin mode as a rockhopper penguin, not an emperor. This is not an error per-se, since in-continuity this is Break's second beast mode. His teammate Stampy mentions that his new beast mode is "revamped," having held a vehicle mode between the events of Beast Wars Neo and the IDW comics.

From Yu-Gi-Oh!

The term "Break" is only usually heard when referring to the effect of "Breaker the Magical Warrior". When it sacrifices its Spell Counter via its effect to destroy a Spell/Trap Card, it is said to "Break" that card, as a partial play-on-words with its name. This is sometimes used with other effect monsters with a Spell/Trap destruction effect.

However, there is a lesser-known usage of the term; in reference to the abusing of a card's effect. To "break" a card is to find a way to abuse its effect to the point that it becomes an unstoppable force on its own, with the correct usage, even though the card itself may have been overlooked by duelists. For example, "Pot of Avarice", upon its release, was looked down upon by many duelists, as they felt its effect to be more of a hindrance than a help (the returning of 5 monsters to the deck was considered too steep a price for two cards, "fattening" the deck and depriving them of much-needed speed), but when it was found that it comboed well with "Magical Merchant", a new and potentially deadly decktype was born, which resulted in "Pot of Avarice" being limited to 1 and more duelists splashing it into their decks. This situation rapidly killed the deck, with the eventual de-limiting of Pot of Avarice resulting.
