- “Thank you! I'm gonna miss you, Tim! Thank you for your hospitality, Brad! I know where you live, Enrique, say hello to you wife for me!”
- ―Nitro Zeus
Nitro Zeus, or Nitro for short, is a Decepticon and a secondary antagonist in the 2017 film Transformers: The Last Knight. He is a powerful, merciless hunter, using his vast arsenal and formidable tracking skills to locate and capture whatever targets Megatron demands. Shockwave's death on Earth greatly angered him, and now both humanity and the Autobots are in Nitro's sights.
Unlike Shockwave, who is a hunter and assassin, Nitro is more of a stalker. Even off the battlefield, Nitro makes it his business to know everything he can about where you live and who you associate with, just in case. Ever since Nitro was taken prisoner by humans, he's been passing the time by tracking his captors' families. Fortunately, Nitro is such a braggart that he'll share all his intel before he gets a chance to use it.
Nitro thinks that he's some sort of celebrity among the humans. After all, if they expend so much effort to keep him in his cell, he must be a big deal! As a result, Nitro's taken to wearing a gold chain around his neck, because that's what human celebrities seem to do!
