Doubledealer is a toy in the Transformers toyline.
Although nominally a Decepticon, and branded as one, Doubledealer is described as a mercenary, who doesn't believe in either the Autobot or the Decepticon cause, but is only loyal to whoever pays him.
Doubledealer is a Powermaster and a triple changer. He has three modes: a missile carrier vehicle, an Autobot robot and a Decepticon falcon. While Doubledealer can use his missile carrier mode in all situations, he uses his robot mode when fighting for the Autobots and his falcon mode when fighting for the Decepticons.
Doubledealer is the only Powermaster in the entire subline to have more than one Nebulan partner. Knok, a humanoid Nebulan, unlocks his transformation to an Autobot robot. Skar, a bat-like Nebulan, unlocks his transformation to a Decepticon falcon. Doubledealer can only use one partner at a time.
Doubledealer's motto is "The price of victory is never too high."
In MasterForce, Doubledealer is called Doubleclouder.
Doubleclouder is an unusual Transtector used by Clouder, the last GodMaster to enter the scene. Witnessing the battle between Grand Maximus and Black Zarak, Cloud is interested in the Destrons and offers his assistence to them. To earn their interest, Clouder faced off against King Poseidon in front of the others, defeating him at the expense of a cruise liner. Showing how he can assume a Cybertron form, he was sent to infiltrate the Cybertron base as a Destron spy, giving the base's location and internal structure. He also managed to render the base's defense systems completely inoperative by inserting bombs here and there, opening the door for a Destron attack. But when the HeadMaster Jrs were almost killed in the following fight, Clouder regretted his actions and disappeared without a trace. Clouder eventually helped in the final battle, with Doubleclouder gaining a will of his own in the end.
The character of Doubleclouder was voiced by Takeshi Kusao.
- Another toy in the G1 toyline with both an Autobot and a Decepticon mode is Punch-Counterpunch. However, unlike Doubledealer, Punch-Counterpunch is actually affiliated with a side: He is an Autobot and only pretends to be a Decepticon.
