Smokescreen is the Autobots' diversionary tactician, tasked with distracting enemy forces in battle, and he performs his duties exceptionally well. His duplicity is not just restricted to his work, either. He is highly charismatic and always knows the right thing to say, and his talent for easing secrets out of others allows him to charm his fellow Autobots into divulging certain concerns that they might be keeping from Optimus Prime. As manipulative and treacherous as Smokescreen is, he does what he does for the good of the Autobots.
