Treds is a Guardian security officer.
Challenge of the GoBots cartoon
In modern times, Treds remained a Guardian and worked with Leader-1 and others hunting Renegades.
Treds was working out of a UNECOM base with Leader-1's command team when Cy-Kill arrived waiving a white flag. The Renegade overlord proposed a game of basketball, with the loser vowing to leave Earth forever. Leader-1 agreed, and the Guardians began training for the game with the assistance of the Harlem Globetrotters.
When the big game began, the Guardians came out to an early lead. Treds took possession and fired the ball out his cannon and into the net from half-court, thereby justifying his inclusion in the episode. Although the Guardians won, the Renegades reneged on the agreement and fled.
In the final battle between the Guardians and Renegades over a matter transmuter, Treds arrived with Dozer, Royal-T, and Road Ranger with the Power Suits to form Courageous. Together, the Guardian combiner squared off against Monsterous until Cy-Kill ordered a retreat.

- Treds is a redeco of the Transformers Mini Vehicle Warpath, transforming into an M551A1 Sheridan tank as well. He was only available in an e-HOBBY-exclusive Collector's Edition six-pack with Road Ranger, Bug Bite, Path Finder, Bad Boy, and Small Foot.
- Treds was stickered with the obscure, rarely-used Renegade insignia for his original toy, despite being a Guardian. This oddity was used in the e-HOBBY release to justify packaging him as a Decepticon, and the roundabout reasoning for Fun Publications to use him as a Guardian-disguised-as-a-Decepticon for story reasons in "Withered Hope".
