What happens if this is KO’d and my opponent has fewer than 2 cards in hand?

If they have 1 card in hand, that card is scrapped. If they have an empty hand, nothing happens.

What happens if Venin and another of my Insecticons are KO’d at the same time?

In that case, Venin’s ability will trigger twice. Your opponent will scrap 4 cards from their hand.

Some cards refer to Autobots or Decepticons. How do I know which characters are Autobots?

Autobots have a red frame and the Autobot insignia in the lower right corner. Decepticons have a purple frame and the Decepticon insignia in the lower right corner. A few characters have "Autobot" or "Decepticon" in their names, although these aren’t the only Autobots and Decepticons.
