The RoGuns were 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 swapping places with characters during the events of that film. The RoGuns took the place of Wheelie in some parts of the story.[1]


Rifle appeared in the Transformers: Renegade Rhetoric episode 18 story "The RoGun Ruckus". He and his fellow RoGuns Pistol and Squirt were made by Dr. Go for the Renegades, but then rebeled and joined the Guardians.[2]

Rifle appeared in episode 32, "The RoGuns of Mars". In this episode the RoGuns worked with the Secret Riders on Mars.[3]
