Vortex is a flying Combaticon and the Decepticon Interrogator. He complains a lot, as seen in the level Death From Above in the game Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, where he constantly complains "Stupid security.... This could take a cycle or two." He is also part of the Huge Decepticon known as Bruticus, putting his helicopter blades to good use as a shield that shreds anything in its path.

"Hey, don't blame me pal! YOU were the easy target!"
