Challenge of the GoBots cartoon
When a Cataclysm threatened Gargent 984.08 Alpha, most of the Monster GoBots fled their native reality as part of the great GoBot Diaspora. They wound up on the dystopian Cybertron of Primax 215.19 Epsilon: a world where the Great War between the Autobots and Decepticons had evolved into a series of ritualized Games fought between their successors, the Maximals and Predacons. The GoBots adopted new Predacon bodies, and gained infamy as a street gang known as the "Antares Eight".
As they settled in, the Renegades built up a secret base underneath Proximax called the Erebos, equipped with a Modifier and databanks charting the whereabouts of other GoBots in the multiverse. At some point, they welcomed in a second group of GoBotic refugees: the Monsterous combiner team, and their handler Odd Ball. Unhappy with the stagnant Cybertronian social order, the Renegades began their own plan to overthrow the dominant "Builders" and rule in their place.
Creepy was later chosen as one of the twelve randomly-drafted Predacons who participated in the 1924th iteration of the Games. Fortunately, this was interrupted by Lio Convoy's assassination of Supersonic and call for an uprising against the Builders.
Creepy and the Eight gathered information about the Human Confederacy and learned of an ancient Terran artifact the Rosetta Stone (renamed "The Stone of Sky Warp") held in the Museum of Decepticon Heritage. They arranged to appropriate the stone, and use it to lure the Terrans to Cybertron. Faking as if they were a Resistance team, the Antares Eight seized control of a trans-hyperwave caster in Proximax. Holding the Builder in charge hostage, they beamed demands for all Builders to leave Proximax in the name of the Resistance. In fact, the transmission was a trap to entice the humans, who monitored all Cybertronian transmissions, with a clear view of the Rosetta Stone in the background. The GoBots intended to use quantumite (a Gargent Cluster substance unknown to the Transformers) to weaponize the caster, snare the unsuspecting humans when they arrived, and take their greater technology.
Creepy and the Monster Gobots faced unexpected resistance, however, from a multi-factional group called the Ex-Bots. They interfered with the seizing of the tower, and were only stopped when Creepy got the drop on one of their members, Stiletto. When the Ex-Bots were all killed or driven off, Creepy went to work modifying the tower with his quantumite. The Ex-Bots rallied and returned for a second strike on the tower, but Creepy caught most of them unprepared in an quantumite-fueled tachyon wave. Stiletto had avoided the trap, however, and got the drop on Creepy. The Renegade promised to be a good prisoner, and lend his exotic technical knowledge to whichever side Stiletto belonged to. Realizing how enticing Creepy would be to various sides, and how treacherous he would ultimately be, Stiletto decapitated the GoBot instead.
Creepy crawled forth from Antares III, one of the Master Renegade's last creations. He stayed loyal to his creator and served as a bodyguard and agent provocateur with buddy Bladez rather than join Cy-Kill's Renegades; Cy-Kill planned to win the two over, believing the old Master was not worthy of them.
Creepy joined the Master Renegade on Gobotron when Bladez infiltrated the Guardian Council. When the Robo Rebels uncovered their plans, Creepy was dispatched to eliminate the Guardian cadets. They managed to drop him down a shaft, but not fast enough to reach the Guardian fleet before Bladez dispatched them on a fool's errand. As he recovered, Creepy fought his way through the four Robo Rebels until Tail Pipe sacrificed himself to delay Creepy so the other Rebels could escape. The Monster GoBots were eventually defeated when Leader-1 and Cy-Kill joined forces to overcome the Master Renegade. Creepy and Bladez took their master and fled from GoBotron to fight another day.
Creepy and Bladez accompanied the Master Renegade to Rogue Star after he convinced four of Cy-Kill's Renegades to turn on their leader in exchange for Power Suit technology. They were left behind to guard Cy-Kill and Cop-Tur, only to be defeated when Fitor, Crasher, and Chaos returned. Creepy and Bladez escaped with their master.
The Monster GoBots were off on some other mission when the Master Renegade was defeated and captured on New Earth.
Later, Creepy was pursued by Cy-Kill and the Renegades, who wished to force him into their cause. Creepy maneuvered his ship, the Dromon, near a Guardian supply depot in the hopes of distracting Cy-Kill. The three-party was soon interrupted by the Overseers, a powerful alien race that used a matter-superposition ray to teleport the GoBots across the galaxy.
Enslaved by the Overseers, the GoBots were outfitted with cuffs that disabled their power packs and other weaponry while causing a bizarre shift in their color schemes. Creepy went from purple to a lurid green. He, Cy-Kill and the Guardian Blaster were put to work in the engine room. Leader-1 and BuggyMan managed to initiate an escape attempt, however, soon bringing the GoBots back together. They overpowered the Overseers and forced them to send the GoBots back home.
"Echoes and Fragments"
In an unstable Iocus reality created by the machinations of Sideways and Gong, the Monster GoBots replaced the Quintessons during the events of the Unicron War. In this version of history, Creepy was one of several Monster GoBots serving the Master Renegade on Antares III, assisting him in throwing sham trials for any hapless visitors they could get their claws on. After Hot Rod and Kup managed to escape death and cause the Dactyls to spill out of their pit, the Monster GoBots fled the sham courtroom for their own safety.
