Pincer Claw, Meteor Blaster, Razor Tail
- "You are fortunate. Your sorrow will be short-lived. These are your final moments, hero. There will be pain – great pain – but then the total peace of the beyond. Death will come as a blessing, rookie. You will welcome it in the end, you'll beg me to finish. You'll break down on your hands and knees then weep like a woman."
- ―Bonecrusher threatening Patrick Gust, Dance in the Flames
Similarly all other members of his organic species, Bonecrusher was born on the planet Auros to a pair of native Aurosians. He enjoyed a straightforward infancy as an only-child.
Bonecrusher grew up on the planet's largest continent and was eventually married before becoming a Bounty Hunter. Having grown up on a planet that relied on the Hero Factory as its law enforcement, Bonecrusher initially had a great deal of respect for the organization, to the extent that he only acted as a hired-gun if his actions came to the greater good.
From Bonecrusher's reminiscing of his youth in Dance in the Flames, it was reviewed that he was raised by a somewhat domineering and abusive father. For this reason he underwent his childhood without incident of swearing or crying and had tremendous respect for his elders.
Following Bonecrusher's marriage to an unnamed female Aurosian, his wife became pregnant with a child, whom they had agreed to name Nisha.
Destruction of AurosHowever, several years into Bonecrusher's career, he was off-planet whilst performing the assassination of a reputed crime lord. The Aurosian succeeded in killing the criminal then returned to Auros only to find that the planet was under quarantine after a deadly disease had spread among the population. Fearful for the life of his wife and family, Bonecrusher begged the Hero Factory to deal with the situation. However, he was ignored and was forced to witness the destruction of his species. Grief-stricken and madly seeking revenge, Bonecrusher placed the blame for the near-extinction of his species on the Hero Factory, which he believed had done nothing to prevent the cataclysm that had cost him his family. The Aurosion swore his revenge and changed his name to "Bonecrusher".
Enemy of the Hero Factory
In more recent times, Bonecrusher took to attacking small, civilized planets in order to attract the attention of the Hero Factory. On one such occasion he was known to have conflicted with the Rho 4 Hero team, leaving three of the heroes critically injured while killing the team's leader.
At some point in his criminal career, Bonecrusher was known to have battled Jimi Stringer at some point, although he managed to escape and avoided capture.
Over the first ten years of his life after the destruction of the Aurosian species, Bonecrusher claimed to have slain a total of 22 Hero Factory heroes. How many heroes he encountered or killed in the following three years remains unclear.
The Raid of the Maldovarium
Additionally, three years ago, Bonecrusher stole the Beagle VI, a state of the art personal space craft capable of travelling at greater speeds than Hero Crafts.
However, by this point, Bonecrusher had lost the will to live, being the supposed last remaining member of his species. Seeking guidance, he traveled to the Maldovarium to seek Scratch, a shifty black marketer who had helped him in the past. Upon landing, Bonecrusher sent a message which supposedly sealed the fate of a traitor, before leaving his craft. This message later turned out to be a fake distress call to the Hero Factory, claiming that he was holding the former owner of the Beagle VI hostage. This was intended to seal the fate of Scratch, as he would be in the bar. Bonecrusher then confronted a guard twice his size and knocked him unconscious.
The Aurosian then proceeded to enter Scratch's chamber to witness him selling a Hero's core processor - that contained a security protocol - to a group of cloaked villains, receiving a large amount of payment in return.
Shortly after the customers left Bonecrusher approached Scratch and pressured him to reveal any news that he knew regarding a change in the fate of his near-extinct species. Scratch then revealed that he had learnt that a number of Aurosians were residing on the planet Orcus following the crash of the Guinevere One space shuttle.
However, shortly after revealing this, the Hero Factory's nearest fleet arrived and began attacking the Maldovarium. After Bonecrusher revealed his treacherous actions to Scratch, two heroes entered the chamber. Luckily, the Aurosian bounty hunter was able to hide in the shadows of the chamber - allowing him to observe the two heroes: Fredrick Nova and Jay Ratchet. However, in an act of mercy for the Trivolian black marketer, Bonecrusher used his meteor blaster to paralyze Nova and wounded Ratchet before making his escape. Bonecrusher then openly betrayed Scratch, leaving him behind while he escaped in the Beagle VI, intent on preparing for his mission to Orcus.
Bonecrusher later travelled to the icy world known as Orcus after hearing rumors of a female member of his species residing there. The former bounty hunter hastily travelled to the planet in hopes of saving his species from extinction.However, his landing on the planet was witnessed by a Hero stationed in a Hero Factory outpost on the planet. Shortly after word of his presence was sent to the other heroes, members of the Delta 4 hero team were dispatched to Orcus to capture him.
Abilities and Traits
Being a male Aurosian, Bonecrusher had a thick, crab-like carapace that provided him with both a well-protected layer of natural armor and insulation against extremely cold temperatures. Additionally, he had a pair of horns and sharp layers of needle-like teeth - both of which were common to his species.
However, Bonecrusher's thick, well insulated armor gave him a great deal of vulnerability to heat.
Powers and Weapons
Bonecrusher was equipped with a modified Meteor Blaster that fired bursts of energy that had the potential to paralyze a target.
Bonecrusher was also equipped with a pincer-claw in place of his right hand and a scorpion-like stinger tail.

- "I don’t do autographs, hero. But if you want something nice written on your tombstone then perhaps something can be arranged."
- ―Bonecrusher threatening Jack Breacher, Dance in the Flames.
- As Bonecrusher was an infant when the Guinevere One space craft crashed, he would be in his mid-thirties by the events of Dance in the Flames. However, as the average lifespan of an Aurosian is approximately 107 years of age, he would be in his prime for the events of this story.
- Bonecrusher was named after the Transformers character Bonecrusher due to the similar bone-colored armor that the two share.
