Beast Wars 25 Tournament, Match 3 - Round 1, Match 3: Depth Charge vs TM2 Dinobot

After two heavily lopsided first-round matches - Match 1 here, Match 2 here - here is Match 3 of the BW25 Dream Combat Tournament. The poll for this Round 1 match lasts for three days, and short profiles for each combatant have been provided.
In selecting the winner, decide which one is more likely to force their opponent into submission or surrender, or a knockout for at least a 10-second period. Outright destruction is not necessary, though possible.
The winner of this match will advance to Round 2 to face Waspinator (this tournament round begins February 7). If a draw is reached in this poll, both combatants will be eliminated from the Tournament.


Match 3: Depth Charge vs. Transmetal 2 Dinobot

Depth Charge (Maximal) - Steadfast, direct, merciless security-chief-turned-vigilante. Triple-Changing Transmetal whose modes adapt him to land, sea, and air. Transforms into a robotic manta ray, and a side-sailed air cruiser that reaches high altitudes; fires explosive discs in all three modes. Robot mode uses dual proton torpedo launcher and spear; manta ray wings act as missile shields. Great strength, towering size, high durability, and unflappable demeanor preclude physical weaknesses, but obsession with destroying Rampage can distract him.

Transmetal 2 Dinobot (Predacon) - Pure hunter and twisted clone derived partially from the original Dinobot; Transmetal 2 technology yields gruesome, intimidating appearance, and enhanced physical power and speed. Transforms into a skeletal robotic velociraptor; uses a laser-guided optical blaster, and extremely hard, razor-sharp raptor talons. Powered by one-half of Rampage’s spark, which provides self-generating repair from damage. Has few physical weaknesses, but may have occasional psychological lapses due to conflicting origins.


After the conclusion of this poll this Wednesday afternoon (shortly after 4pm ET), Match 4 in this opening round will begin later that night!

Ooo, a tough 1!
Depth Charge took out Protoform X, but Dino 2 was the other half of his spark.

Will D2 get revenge?

Polls are usually popularity contests for the characters.
...So why not the actors?

If this is gonna delineate between DB & TM2DB, then gotta give it to the fish
All of DB's good characterization came while he was regular - TM2DB in and of himself, was basically just a tough RPG enemy (just as Megs wanted him, apparently) right up till the end

DC had (barely) more good eps, like when he was a raft, lol
And his challenging/disregarding Primal and calling out his ineptitude? Classic
also fish shotgun ftw

I'm going to assume the poll is about the figures, not so much the characters, in which this is no contest.

Heh, though that doesn't explain Scott McNeil in this case.... (Insert Quintesson chuckle here.)

It is about the characters, hence the profiles with the combatants' abilities, plus the choice of winner of a battle based on "which one is more likely to force their opponent into submission or surrender, or a knockout for at least a 10-second period." After all, it's a Dream Combat Tournament, not a Dream Toy Tournament.

Anyway, just one more day is left to cast your vote for this battle, before it closes tomorrow afternoon. Then watch for the poll for Round 1: Match 4 to open tomorrow night!

Good point! Although I don't remember much dialogue from D2, mostly grunts and growls.

And maybe he didn't meet Scott?

I'm curious, if this was toy-based, then who would this contest have been no-contested for?
