At an early age, Roulette and her sister Shadow Striker watched as their sister was destroyed at the hands of nomadic invaders. This traumatic event gave Roulette her passion for law enforcement, in the hopes that she could prevent such tragedies from happening to others. She placed second in the Intraformers Sharpshooting Competition behind Sureshot, but she was forgotten amongst the cheers for the winner.[1]

3H Enterprises[edit]

Roulette, Shadow Striker, Sideswipe, Trailbreaker and Sunstreaker return to Cybertron.

Roulette, her sister, and fellow Autobots Sideswipe, Sunstreaker and Trailbreaker returned to Cybertron after a long absence. The planet's Maximals welcomed them home, but the celebration was interrupted by Unicron, who abducted all five Autobots, as well as the Maximals Silverbolt and Blackarachnia. After she and many other prisoners were freed by Optimus Primal, Roulette was turned on by Shadow Striker, who had become corrupted by the influence of Unicron. She was forced to leave her sister behind when Primal led the escapees back to Cybertron.

Toys[edit]

  • Universe Deluxe Roulette and Shadow Striker (2003)
Roulette was packaged together with her Decepticon sister Shadow Striker. The two were available exclusively at BotCon 2003. Both Roulette and Shadow Striker are slight remolds of Robots in Disguise Side Burn, with a new head.
Roulette's color scheme was based on Sakuyamon, as convention organizer Glen Hallit was also a big Digimon fan.
Roulette's toy is 12.5 cm long, and a Dodge Viper is 445 cm long. This is a scale of about 1:36. Since she stands 13 cm tall in robot mode, her robot mode would stand 15.4 feet tall.
