Drift is a character from the Transformers franchise. Until recently, his only major appearances were in comic form, where he was portrayed as an Autobot who formerly served Megatron under the name "Deadlock". A highly skilled swordsman, he was one of the most feared warriors on Cybertron. But when he looked back at the death and destruction that he had caused, he vowed to hunt down Decepticons and become an honourable Autobot. His next major appearance was in Michael Bay's 2014 summer blockbuster, Transformers: Age of Extinction, and related media.
