Animated series

Hornet and Loco in Challenge of the GoBots

Hornet first appeared in Challenge of the GoBots episode "Et Tu, Cy-Kill". A long serving Renegade since at least the aftermath of the first revolt, Hornet took command of a Thruster during the disastrous raid on GoBotron - the Guardians lured the bulk of the Renegade fleet into a trap, and inflicted heavy losses.

In GoBots: Battle of the Rock Lords Hornet would be part of the force taken down to the surface of Cordax by Cy-Kill, helping with the initial rout of Boulder's troops.

Hornet was featured in the 2016 Ask Vector Prime story Echoes and Fragments, set during the events of The Transformers: The Movie. The manipulations of the evil Gong and Sideways resulted in various GoBots, Rock Lords and Starriors swapping places with characters during the events of that film. He was one of the monster GoBots on the planet Antares III, taking the place of the Quintessons and Sharkticons of Quintessa in the story.[1]


Hornet appeared in the Transformers: Renegade Rhetoric episode 7-8 story "The Hawks of Space", where he helped defend the Renegade base on the dark side of the moon.[2]
