The most epicc Transformer in existence. Optimus Prime's second in command, Prowl is a highly skilled tactician and relies heavily on logic. He is a very useful Autobot to have during a battle. Many may see him as a jerk, but truly he is not. He's a badass.
Prowl is some form of police vehicle in his incarnations, mainly a police car, but he was a police motorcycle in Transformers Animated.
In fanfiction, Prowl is often given the nickname "Prowlie" or "Prowler." Most of the time he is not happy with such nicknames.

"Prowl!"
"Why? He's a jerk!"
