Challenge of the GoBots cartoon
On another scouting mission, Traitor learned a mystic gemstone from Ancient Rome was in the possession of a wealthy human theatre enthusiast. He intended to leave his fortune, including the gemstone, to the best theatre production of the season, prompting a Renegade performance of "The Pirates of Penzance".
Cy-Kill described his Dread Launcher troops to the listeners of Axiom Nexus, calling Traitor "mercurial".
"Echoes and Fragments"
For their own amusement, Sideways and Gong played with reality so that elements of a GoBots universe blended in and out of a Transformers universe. In this mingled reality, the Renegades lay siege to Autobot City on Earth. Blaster and Perceptor attempted to radio for help to Optimus Prime on Cybertron's Moonbase One, but Cy-Kill spotted them. He and Dr. Go dispatched Traitor and the Dread Launchers to jam the transmission. They destroyed the antenna, but were intercepted by Blaster's Recordabots before they could reach the broadcaster himself.
- Traitor (Dread Launcher, 1987)
- Renegade Robot Wasp
- One of the last GoBots released, Traitor and the other Dread Launchers split into two alternate modes. His top half becomes a wasp, and his bottom half becomes the traditional landing and launch pad that all wasps have.
