Top Spinner is one of the smaller members of the vicious viking-like pirates, the Berserkers. His outfit is mostly colored in shades of purple and lilac. Just like the other members of his crew, Top Spinner is loyal to their captain Hammerhand and is always happy to be a part of his evil schemes.
Strengths[edit | edit source]
Top Spinner's strength lies mainly in his spinning ability. The cybernetic enhancements to his body allow him to spin at ultra fast speeds. Not only does he use this as his main mode of attack, he also employs it as a defensive move to shatter or deflect any projectiles thrown at him.
Top Spinner's gyrating gesture can also be put to other uses, like when Hammerhand once used him as a make-shift propeller to power one of his life boats after its own jet engine stopped working.
Weaknesses[edit | edit source]
Lack of intelligence and greed are weaknesses that plague all the Berserkers, and Top Spinner is no exception. The lack of any long range weapons also means that Top Spinner has to get close to an opponent in order to fight them, leaving him vulnerable to their attack.
His main weakness however is the dizziness and disorientation that he sometimes experiences after spinning very fast. During this stage of confusion, he becomes and easy target for opponents, and it also gives time to his opponents to flee.
Weapons & Equipment[edit | edit source]
Top Spinner brandishes a Spiked Chain Mace which consists of a spiked metal ball attached by a chain to a wooden rod. Even on its own the Mace is a dangerous weapon but when combined with Top Spinner's whirlwind movements, it becomes lethal.
The Berserker also carries a circular metal shield to defend against an attack.

Merchandise[edit | edit source]
The toy company LJN produced a Top Spinner action figure as part of its ThunderCats toyline. The figure was released in the second wave of toys that were produced in 1986. Top Spinner was part of the "Berserkers" sub-line which also featured action figures of the other members of his crew. The figure's "Battle-Matic Action" feature was activated by a lever on its back which would make the figure spin rapidly from the waist up.
