Efficiency through self-sufficiency.
Sideways is a conscientious, ninja-like warrior who races into battle. Disguised as a sports bike he exceeds speeds of 250 mph. Mysterious and silent, he reveals little about himself except a fierce drive to confront the enemy and quickly return to Cybertron. On Earth he undergoes a personality change that gives him both a good and a bad side based on Minicon influence. This split makes him highly unpredictable. It's hard to predict which half of his split personality will win in the end - the good side or the evil side!
