Nemesis loves striking buffs away from opponents. This allows him to deal massive special II damage.


Bots who don't generate buffs are fair deal.

Strong Match-upsEdit

Bots Edit

  • All Brawlers, really:
    • Optimus Primal - Primal makes armor and melee buffs that will be easily nullified, and since he makes a ton of armor buffs his Special 2 will do massive damage. Also, when Primal has 10 armor buffs and converts them into Melee buffs, that's when Nemesis does the most damage. The king of the jungle has been dethroned; exit stage right, Primal.
    • Tantrum - Tantrum is an absolute brute with his Melee Buffs, but a pillow without them. It is also surprisingly quite easy to lose said buffs to Optimus Nemesis' Special II, and for Nemesis to copy them, giving him Tantrum's truck-fisted damage in a near instant.
    • Grimlock - Grimlock is the king of the Fight, but what is a king without Melee buffs?
    • Motormaster? - While we're on the subject of kings, Motormaster is the King of the Road, but against Nemesis becomes the King of the Junkyard pretty easily without his melee buffs. To add insult to injury, Nemesis can copy melee buffs.
    • Optimus Prime (MV1) - Reversing the polarities of MV1's face puts him to sleep pretty easily before he can take Nemesis on. It should also be noted that buffs will be copied, and oh it's so fun using MV1's buffs against him!
    • Grindor - Flying tank ain't so tanky no more. It is quite easy to lose his buffs to the axes of evil.
    • Thundercracker - A chop of the axe and it's adios for the reskin's Armor and Melee Buffs. Nemesis can also copy all the buffs Thundercracker can generate, and it's also curtains closed for Thundercracker without those buffs, even though the brawling jet has somewhat of an advantage over landlubbers such as Nemesis.
  • Bludgeon - This armored warrior will only lose his defenses to Nemesis' axe.

Mods Edit

  • Security Module - It is very easy to lose the benefits of this module to the axe.

Weak Match-upsEdit

Bots Edit

  • Megatronus - He only comes with four sets of relics, and doesn't generate Buffs at all.
  • Galvatron - Insanity checks prove that no buffs are needed to demolish dark clones.
  • Ramjet - Brasher behavior leads to easy wins.

Mods Edit

  • Exo-Filter - Nemesis won't be able to copy active debuffs onto his opponent if they are Purified.
