BioEdit

Hard-nosed and big brained, Rhinox is a Bot with a resounding passion for life. He can tangle with the baddest of Predacons, then take a break to develop new Maximal tech or stop and smell the roses. But to be sure, if you push the big rhino too much, you'll likely meet his legendary chainguns.

Signature AbilityEdit

Overclock

Shield Buffs are more effective, but also more volatile.

Rhinox ekes out extra performance from Shield Buffs, further reducing damage to 60% of the opponent's Attack Rating. When reducing the damage suffered by an attack, the extra strain causes them to explode, inflicting 59~160.9% Attack as Shock Damage.

StrategyEdit

PlayerEdit

OpponentEdit

Be sure to remove all of Rhinox's Shields before activating a Special Attack. But it is not recommended to remove them with blocked melee attacks or melee heavy attacks; shields removed this way are incredibly likely to Shock your Bot if his signature ability is awakened.

Strong Match-upsEdit

  • Rhinox's Shields reduces damage from the punishing Special Attacks of Demolition Bots like Mixmaster and Ramjet.

Weak Match-upsEdit

  • Grimlock - The several Bleeds and Shocks Rhinox inflicts can be Purified and fuel Grimlock's Dino Rage.
  • All Scouts have a 50% chance to avoid getting Shocked when they hit Rhinox's shields.
  • Bumblebee can break Rhinox's Shields.
