Gunnyr is a Renegade.
Challenge of the GoBots cartoon
In Axiom Nexus, Cy-Kill recalled Gunnyr's time as Lord High GoBot of Old Gobotron's Level 17. Once he was captured by Ace and Dart, Gunnyr was sentenced to the Prison Moon of GoBotron. Seeing a gap in his command structure after Zero's betrayal, Cy-Kill approach Gunnyr about serving his cause. Deputy sub-commander of the Renegades was better than a prison cell, so Gunnyr quickly agreed.
During a Guardian Academy training exercise, Gunnyr interrupted with Bad Boy and Stretch in an attempt to kidnap the Guardians' human allies. The cadets in training proved to be little resistance, but the arrival of Leader-1's team forced Gunnyr to retreat.
As the Guardians and UNECOM worked together on the new Space Hawk interceptor ships, Cy-Kill prepared to strike back. he tasked Gunnyr, Klaws, and Fitor with leading simultaneous strikes on the three production facilities. Unfortunately, Gunnyr was the least successful of the three, facing Leader-1's team directly.
Doctor Braxis once used the ruse of a Destabilizer Cannon upgrade to the Guardians' blasters to covertly install them with mind-control tech. Once the Guardians were under his control, Braxis summoned his secret Renegade partners to witness his accomplishment. Cy-Kill brought his sub-commanders Gunnyr and Fitor to view the UNECOM base Braxis had already captured with his Guardians. Braxis turned on the Renegades, however, trapping the trio in a force field while luring the other Renegades down to receive mind control upgrades as well. It was the free Guardians Turbo and Scooter who eventually shut down Braxis's plans, allowing Gunnyr and the other Renegades to escape.
After an accident with a Quantum Tunneling Shield led to Cy-Kill's disappearance, Gunnyr and Fitor began to disagree on the future of the Renegades. Gunnyr believed in the need for strong leadership, and wanted Fitor to officially declare himself Renegade leader. Fitor refused to give up on Cy-Kill, however, retaining only the role of acting commander while dedicating Renegade resources to finding their missing leader. The Guardians were becoming too bold without Cy-Kill around, striking at Renegade outposts over and over. Gunnyr finally disobeyed Fitor's mandates and assembled his own Renegades to counter-strike the Guardians. The conflict escalated to a final battle for the fate of Rogue Star, when Cy-Kill finally returned. With new reinforcements to bolster the Renegade ranks, the tide turned and the Guardians ultimately retreated. Cy-Kill smoothed over relations between Gunnyr and Fitor afterwards. He praised Fitor for his dedication and loyalty, but also commended Gunnyr for his strategic insight.
When Zod temporarily received super-intelligence in an accident, Cy-Kill was delighted. However, the brute was now smart enough to consider betrayal, and browbeat several Renegades into helping him. After the Renegades captured a sizeable percentage of the Guardian fleet at a service depot thanks to Zod's planning, the beast intended to lure Cy-Kill, Fitor, and Gunnyr onto one of the captured Command Centers before blowing it up. A stray blast from a Guardian counter-attack hit the Command Center first, though, detonating it and revealing Zod's treachery to Cy-Kill.
"Echoes and Fragments"
For their own amusement, Sideways and Gong played with reality so that elements of a Gargent stream blended in and out of a Primax stream. In this amalgamated universe, Gunnyr was a Renegade who attacked a Command Center on its way to Autobot City on Earth.
