Scooter beware, you're in for a scare!
While investigating a meteor strike on GoBotron's Inner Sphere, the Guardians were attacked by a pack of moto-wolves programmed by Cy-Kill to serve him. Scooter was nipped by one of the wolves during the first encounter. The wolves fled, but began systematically attacking various GoBeing villages.
Nick Burns, a fan of the Werewolf Eclipse comic, got suspicious when Scooter always disappeared for one reason or another shortly before each attack. He became convinced the bite of the moto-wolf had turned Scooter into a WereGoBot. He and A.J. reported their theory to Leader-1, who decided to lock Scooter up just to be sure until Professor Von Joy could examine him. Indeed, the attacks seemed to stop when Scooter was locked up.
In fact, Cy-Kill was merely following his own scheme. The various village attacked were designed to scatter the Guardian forces so the moto-wolves could congregate for a single massive attack on the Guardian Intelligence Institute. Only Scooter and Von Joy were in the area when the attack began. They used their studies of the moto-wolves to send out an ultra-frequency that disabled Cy-Kill's reprogramming, forcing him to flee from his own pack. Leader-1 and the others returned, and all chuckled at the idea that Scooter was even something menacing.

- Challenge of the GoBots Season 2 was a virtual continuation of the original show related by Vector Prime (from his multiversal perspective) and Cy-Kill (who lived it).
- In realities where this story aired on television, it premiered on November 10, 1986.
- This episode was named in an Ask Vector Prime post on December 21, 2015.
- Scooter is referred to as a "WereGoBot", which is a common misuse of the prefix. "Werewolf" is literally Old English for "man-wolf", meaning a WereGoBot would be part man, part GoBot, instead of part wolf.
