Dear Cy-Kill, Aside from monster GoBots, have you fought any real monsters? Mummies, werewolves, vampires?

Cy-Kill: There was an incident that springs to mind. The Guardians dispatched Leader-1, Scooter, Turbo, and their three insufferable human allies to investigate a meteor strike on Gobotron's Inner Sphere, a backwards and superstitious part of the planet. They worried that it might be a Renegade plot, and in fact it was... but not one that they had anticipated. I had discovered a race of voracious moto-wolves and reprogrammed them, sending them down to menace the planet. I thought the Inner Sphere would be the perfect canvas upon which to wreak havoc, allowing me to strike once the Guardians' attentions were directed elsewhere.

It worked out even better than I had anticipated. Most of the moto-wolves scattered, terrifying the countryside, but one of the smaller pups was injured and stayed behind. Scooter thought it was cute and picked it up... only for it to nip his finger and cause him to drop it. No one thought anything of it, initially. Then the attacks started, as the moto-wolf pack began to ravage the local GoBot villages, prompting the Guardians to respond. Nick, who had been reading the comic Werewolf Eclipse, noticed that every time there was an attack, Scooter was first called away to do some maintenance or errand or science. He postulated that Scooter might be a werewolf, and though Matt scoffed, A.J. was sufficiently worried to take their concerns to Turbo.

Turbo and Leader-1 figured that they were better safe than sorry, and so had Scooter locked up, despite his protests. Even then, part of him seemed nervous at the prospect, as if even he wasn't sure if he was a WereGoBot or not. Sure enough, the attacks stopped, so they contacted Professor Von Joy to look for a cure. But, in truth, the attacks had stopped because I had sufficiently scattered the Guardian forces and was ready for a massed attack at a central location, the Guardian Intelligence Institute.

With the Guardians all over the planet, only Scooter and Professor Von Joy were close enough to intercept, and neither of them had the firepower to stand up to the Renegade armada I had assembled. But I had underestimated the power of brains against brawn yet again; using their studies into the moto-wolves, and inspired by a chance remark from A.J., they were able to use ultra-frequency signals to deprogram them. Beset by a ravenous pack of mechanical lupines, I had little choice but to withdraw. Turbo and Leader-1 apologized to Scooter for suspecting him, when it had all been coincidence, and he gave an "aw, shucks, I'm just glad it wasn't a moto-bat that bit me. Werewolves I can handle, but vampires, they're REALLY scary." Everyone enjoyed a laugh at his remarks, drawing the incident to a close.
