Water Walk is a Renegade.
Challenge of the GoBots cartoon
Cy-Kill considered Water Walk a fine example of superior GoBot variety when it comes to alternate modes.
Water Walk was one of the Renegades in Cy-Kill's entourage when he entered the U.S. Presidential race in order to secretly install the other candidates with Indoctrination Chips. Unfortunately, their ploy was uncovered and the Renegades were driven off.
Using a supercharged Astro-Beam, the Renegades stole away the Communication Moon of Gobotron, leaving Cy-Kill and his handpicked squad free to pilfer its secrets for 48 hours. Unfortunately, they didn't realize Leader-1 had also been pulled away by the Astro-Beam, and was secretly working against them inside the moon. Water Walk was one of the first Renegades eliminated by Leader-1 as he McClane'ed his way around and towards Cy-Kill.
Water Walk brought Cy-Kill a communications report when the Renegades tapped into transmissions between Scooter and Nuggit on Quartex. This report clued Cy-Kill in to the existence of the Fossil Lord and his people's combiner form, Fossilsaurus.
Water Walk was one of the Renegades Cy-Kill brought to Mount Hotaka to learn ninjitsu from the Ashi Dojo. He proved highly effective for a time, but when Leader-1 learned ninjitsu as well, the Renegades were outmatched again. A mishap with the positronic jammer also wiped all the ninja knowledge from the GoBots' minds by the end of the conflict.
"Echoes and Fragments"
As Sideways and Gong played with mixing universal streams, the Renegades staged an all-out assault on Autobot City on Earth. Water Walk was one of the Renegades fighting to breach the Autobot defenses. Springer took a shot at him during the invasion, but missed.
