Bludgeon is a Samurai-themed Decepticon warlord skilled in the ancient cybertronian art of Metallikato. He is a recurring antagonist in Marvel's Transformers comics, first appearing at the end of Marvel's "The Transformers" comic series before becoming an antagonist in Transformers: Generation 2.
Bludgeon later constructed a spacecraft called the Warworld and traveled throughout the galaxy raiding vessels for their cargo. After gathering the necessary resources, Bludgeon began construction of a new series of Decepticon warriors.
Seeking possession of the Matrix of Leadership, Bludgeon had his forces launch a full-scale attack on Earth. However, during the attack, Bludgeon was confronted by Megatron and Starscream who were looking to take back leadership of the Decepticons. Bludgeon fought Megatron but was ultimately overpowered and defeated by the Decepticon founder.
Megatron later displayed Bludgeon's severed head aboard the Warworld.
