Challenge of the GoBots cartoon
Spoiler and Bug Bite were appointed saboteurs by Cy-Kill to prevent the Guardians and Rock Lords from establishing a firm alliance. They orchestrated a series of "accidents" and explosions that pointed towards Rock Roller, a Lord unfamiliar to the Guardians. Unfortunately for the Renegades, their ruse was ultimately uncovered.
Spoiler joined Crasher and Stallion in the Alienapolis Five Million, with control of an entire advanced species on the line. The Renegades cheated to win, but Turbo nonetheless pulled out a victory at the end.
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, Spoiler, Fly Trap, Loco, and Screw Head eagerly turned on Cy-Kill. Spoiler's reverse-engineered P3 suit gave him blinding speed. 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. Spoiler secured Cy-Kill's mercy by providing a scan of the Master Renegade's ship, giving the Renegades the chance to recreate their own Power Warrior.
"Echoes and Fragments"
- Spoiler (GoBot, 1983)
- Enemy Robot Sports Car
- ID number: 20
- A repackaged import of the Machine Robo Countach Robo toy, GoBots Spoiler converts from robot to Lamborghini Countach.
- Spoiler was intended to be female. While the original profile was omitted from the final packaging, it (along with the rest of the cast) featured in the 1984 Tonka toy catalog, where she also would've held a personal rivalry against Path Finder. By the time Challenge of the GoBots was released, the profile was swapped with the initially male Crasher.
- Spoiler's Cybertronian-style body in the "Cataclysm universe" is modeled on Freewheeler from the Generation 1 toyline.
