His function is simply Warrior. Razor Claw's loyalty and self-sacrifice is unmatched by any of the mutants. Goes into battle with crusader-like enthusiasm; relishes tearing apart Predacons in both dino mode and wolverine mode. Does not care for Maximals but realizes they are necessary for a total organic existence. Secretly jealous of their ability to convert to robot mode. Tremendous speed in wolverine mode borders on teleportation; negatative ion shield in dinomode makes him impervious to firepower.

Nothing gives him as much pleasure as destroying a great city and razing its cultural institutions - libraries, museums, schools - for he knows that ignorance is the seed of chaos, and it is in chaos he feels most comfortable.
