The name or term Spinister refers to more than one character or idea. For a list of other meanings, see Spinister (disambiguation).
Spinister is a Decepticon Aerial Assault specialist.

I'm terribly mysterious and I have 300 pounds of canned meat strapped to my right arm.

Spinister is mysterious... terribly mysterious. A closed book to the Decepticons, Spinister is a dark menace to his Autobot enemies. Often, the first warning of his approach is the gentle note of a detonating fusion bomb or the delightful hiss of metal boiling away under an assault of charged particles from his beam cannon. How he is so terribly sneaky is unclear, but rumor has it that he has developed a cloaking device that he has kept a secret from his fellow 'Cons. Quiet and mysterious, that's how he likes to be, and that's how he intends to stay. One must wonder how much even the Mayhem Attack Squad know about him.

This grim air warrior seems far more independent of mind than the common Decepticon, though he doesn't go in for the outright mutiny for which Starscream is noted. When he spots unrecognized potential in the Decepticon ranks, however, he may well bring the would-be warrior under his tutelage without the knowledge or permission of his superior officers. Actually speaking his mind would prevent the whole mysterious, shadow-warrior thing from working, after all.

Then again, the guy might just be a paranoid dumbass who'd shoot a torch just because it "looked at him funny." He's actually a bit of a savant when it comes to re-wiring things, though.

Also, his name is cooler than Slayride and Sinnertwin combined.

Spinister transforms into a rather busily-coloured AH-64 Apache attack helicopter.
