Challenge of the GoBots cartoon
- Voice actor: Peter Cullen
Stallion was part of the team of Renegades - along with Psycho, Stinger, Bad Boy, Block Head and Spoiler - sent to GoBotron's Prison Moon to oversee to the disassembling of the captured Leader-1. Along with Stinger, Stallion loaded the injured Guardian into the machine shortly before a Guardian rescue squad led by Sparky appeared. While Stallion was knocked out by Turbo, Psycho was still able to activate the machine and disassemble Leader-1.
Together with Stinger and Bad Boy again he was part of a team of Cy-Kill's most loyal followers led by Fitor to raid a UNECOM surveillance facility, causing considerable damage before the Guardians arrived. However he was personally flattened by Turbo and the Renegades were forced to retreat - abandoning Fitor, much to Cy-Kill's subsequent chagrin, as the high-ranking officer was restrained in Leader-1's force-field when the Astrobeam took them back to Roguestar. Twin Spin and Stallion were seen patrolling in the detention facility onboard Roguestar as it orbited Cordax; however, A.J. Foster and Nick Burns evaded them, freeing Small Foot and escaping to the planet below.
When Cy-Kill schemed to become President of the United States, Stinger and Stallion campaigned with the auto workers of Detroit to ensure his victory. Stallion, Spoiler and Crasher participated in the Alienapolis Five Million on behalf of the Renegades, with control of the entire planet's society as the prize. Naturally, they cheated, but Turbo still won the race for the Guardians. Stinger and Stallion raided a museum to steal a meteorite fragment for Cy-Kill's new weapon, the reciprocating positronic jammer. Unfortunately, the Robo Rebels interrupted them and the clumsy Renegades stumbled through the artifacts while making their escape. Stinger ripped a Japanese tapestry and got part of it caught in his door as they sped away. Back at Thruster, Cy-Kill discovered a hidden scroll inside the tapestry promising great power. He used it to locate the Ashi Dojo on Mount Hotaka in Japan, and forced the ninja master to teach Stinger, Stallion and four other Renegades the secrets of ninjitsu. They stymied the Guardians with their new skills until the master taught Leader-1 his secrets too. The status quo was restored when the reciprocating positronic jammer wiped the new memories of all the GoBot ninjas.
While assessing his new troops from Axiom Nexus. Cy-Kill considered Breez's anger management issues suitable to pair him with Stallion as a partner. He also thought Stallion would be the perfect opponent to bring down the cocky new Guardian racer, Beamer. Stallion teamed with Fright Face, Jig Saw, and Zod to steal a quantum supercomputer from Cape Canaveral. When Zod bit into the probe holding the supercomputer and suddenly gained super-intelligence, however, Stallion and the Renegades retreated to consult Cy-Kill.
"Echoes and Fragments"
As Sideways and Gong played with mixing universal streams, the Renegades staged an all-out assault on Autobot City on Earth. Stallion strafed Hot Rod and Kup after they dealt with Fly Trap and Destroyer.
Stallion was one of the Renegade Go-Bots that flocked to Cy-Kill in the desert near Route 66, helping surround and subdue the US government Go-Bot Leader-1 and retrieve military secrets from his brain.

- Stallion was released by Tonka in the second series of GoBots, and converts from robot to Ford Mustang sports car in 8 steps. Stallion converts from robot to Ford Mustang. To meet demand Tonka commissioned Bandai to produce several additional moulds specifically for use in the GoBots toyline overseas, including Stallion. The toy is stamped "MRT-45" (Machine Robo Tonka) for reference. Initial versions featured stickered car windows, but a running change saw paint used instead. Like several of the 'MRT' moulds Stallion has a surprising amount of articulation for a toy of the period of such a small size, and is less prone to wear than many of its' peers, while also having an interesting and relatively complex transformation pattern.
- The figure was not released outside of North America.
- Stallion was released in the Hot Shot assortment (#7255) for the second series. The figure was not initially offered in the third series before belatedly returning to the Hot Shot assortment, bearing a 3-D GoBots Sticker; this may have been stock intended for the cancelled Gift Pack release below.
