Challenge of the GoBots cartoon
When a raid on a Guardian communications hub went bad, Cy-Kill was particularly harsh to his troops. So, when the Master Renegade appeared offering Power Suit upgrades to the Renegades if only they made him leader, Screw Head, Spoiler, Fly Trap, Loco eagerly turned on Cy-Kill. Screw Head's re-engineered P4 suit gave him the power of teleportation. Eager to test their might, the Power Suited soldiers and the Master Renegade launched a direct assault on the Gobotron Fortress. When the time came to form a dark copy to battle Courageous directly, however, the "united" Renegades couldn't agree on who should control the combiner. The hobbled "Grungy" was easily beaten apart by Courageous, and the Renegades meekly limped back to Cy-Kill, begging for his good graces.
While preparing for a raid on UNECOM in Zurich, Switzerland, Screw Head surprisingly tunneled into an underground network of caverns populated by Mole Men. Cy-Kill wasted no time manipulating them into joining his noble cause against the Guardians.
Screw Head accompanied Cy-Kill to the North Pole to drill a fallen meteorite for Sorium. The Guardians intercepted their operation, though, and Good Knight blew up the meteorite. The Renegades were able to make off with only a small amount of sorium clinging to Screw Head's drill as they left.
"Echoes and Fragments"
In a hybrid universe where the Transformers and GoBots coexisted, Crain Brain, Spoons, and Screw Head used their vehicle modes to breach the walls of Autobot City, singing as they went. Screw head was smashed by Kup when the Autobot used the Renegades as impromptu ramps. On the way back to Cybertron, Zero pushed Megatron and several other dying combatants out of Astrotrain. They found Unicron, and after Megatron bargained for his life he and his troops became new servants of Unicron. Screw Head was reformatted into one of the Sweeps, loyal to Deadlift.
