From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

The name or term Sideswipe refers to more than one character or idea. For a list of other meanings, see Sideswipe (disambiguation).
Sideswipe is an Autobot from Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen franchise of the live-action movie continuity family.
Damn, I'm Good. If you forget my name, call me by the name Wheelfeet McStabber.

Sideswipe is built to fight. He is sleek, fast and accomplished in battle. Focusing on his enemies with absolute attention, his blades are a shining blur as he leaps through the air, twisting to avoid enemy fire. He also has dual blasters that unfold out of his forearms and blasters on his back, which happen to be the exhast pipes when he is in car mode. Converting to his vehicle mode to drive at blazing speeds, he uses every trick in the book to get close to his opponent, and put his powerful swords and blasters to work hacking, tearing, and firing at them.

Damn, I'm Good.

—Sideswipe, Revenge of the Fallen (film)




Revenge of the Fallen film

Voice actor: André Sogliuzzo

In Shanghai, Sideswipe is sent out to finish Sideways. Sideswipe yells "Clear a Path" to the soldiers standing around, chases Sideways around some warehouses and then uses his left sword to propel himself up into the air over Sideways, fires his back-mounted guns, launches his right sword into Sideway's hood. Then he lands on the ground, twirls around, reattaches his blade, and pulls it through to finish off Sideways. Then he triumphantly twirls around and states, "Damn I'm good!"

After Optimus Prime was killed in combat against Megatron, Starscream, and Grindor, Sideswipe and the other Autobots arrive to help, but all they could do was provide cover fire as the humans and Bumblebee whisked away. Afterwards, when Optimus Prime's body was brought to the N.E.S.T. base, Sideswipe and the other Autobots ready their weapons in case the humans attacked. Galloway pointedly looked at Sideswipe when he was lecturing Captain Lennox about the Autobots and their presence on Earth.

Later in Egypt, Sideswipe is on the lookout for Sam. He soon spots Sam and yells "Sam; Spotted Sam!" Then he is shot and has to fire back. Even later, he is pushed to the ground along with all of the other autobots when The Fallen teleports in to steal the Matrix of Leadership from Optimus Prime. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

Damn, I'm downloadable! You're not as cool as me!

  • Sideswipe (Legends, 2009)
Sideswipe transforms from a teeny whittle Corvette Stingray Concept car into a itty bitty robot who pretends, through how he's molded, to retain his swords and wheel-feet. Isn't that just adorable? Now, if only he had a tiny Sideways to slice in half...
This toy was later packaged with Legends class Mudflap and Decepticon Deluxe Fearswoop in a special Walmart exclusive 3 pack.
  • Sideswipe (Deluxe, 2009)
"DAMN, I make 'not being able to stand up' look GOOD!"
Sideswipe transforms into an amazingly accurate Chevy Corvette Stingray Concept. He has twin "deployable blades" on his arms which rotate around in robot mode. His Mech-Alive feature is a pair of shifting leg-mounted "battle armor" that lengthen when his lower legs are pulled back, and shorten when they're straightened. Speaking of his legs, his feet, being wheels, sometimes make him incredibly difficult to keep stood up. He has what can act as stoppers on the back of his feet, but they tend to serve no real purpose, since having him resting on them makes him fall backwards more often than not. The same thing happens if you try to use the plates on the front of his feet, but he falls forward instead. This standing issue can be helped by putting him in an "action pose", but having him stand up straight is pretty tricky. If by some Primus-gifted miracle you DO get him to stand relatively straight, the slightest breeze will probably knock him over. Foot problems notwithstanding, he has fairly good articulation in robot mode, about as much as is expected from a Deluxe Class figure. He also has a small Corvette symbol in his chest.
  • Sideswipe (Gravity Bots, 2009)
Sideswipe transforms to a cutified Chevy Stingray. his main gimmick is that he transforms automatically when the car is standing upright.
  • Sideswipe (Human Alliance, 2009)
This incarnation of Sideswipe is larger and more movie-acurate than the Deluxe class toy. It features opening side doors and a detailed interior with two seats and a steering wheel. He is slightly less sleek in Robot Mode, with a movie-accurate head and Cybertonian markings. The blades are now sharp and aren't part of the car anymore, instead being stored on the underside of his Corvette Stingray Concept mode. Sideswipe comes with a Sergeant Epps figure, which can ride on his arm or shoulder during play and comes with a firing projectile.
  • Sideswipe (Robot Replicas, 2009)
A movie acurate version of Sideswipe, with blue blades and little blocks on the wheels of his feet that allow him to stand. Most of these figures have poorly painted corvette symbols on their chests, and in come cases, the back lights of his car mode on his chest is reversed, making it look upside-down. It is made of a softer plastic and is based on the CGI incarnations of Sideswipe taken directly from the movie.
  • Sideswipe (Power Bots, 2009)
Along with Power Bots Bumblebee and Megatron, Sideswipe is a highly stylized, kid friendly version of himself.

  • He is one of a few of the characters in the films to have wheels instead of feet (or legs).

    • While in Tales of the Fallen comic issue 2, Sideswipe is said to have an intense hatred/rivalry with Demolishor, who attacked him and his team and left Sideswipe for dead, due to this, Sideswipe became a loner and arrogant, and this came to a head until the humans attacked him and put him in his place.
  • According to Hasbro's Transformers website, his blades are made of Cybertanium, which is nearly indestructable.
  • His blades have Cybertronian symbols drawn on it.
  • He is skilled in almost every martial arts on Cybertron.
  • He could move his backpack like back. He ussually moves it to make it look like a wing in battle.
