The Long Game

The Scootonium Scenario

Once he arrived on Axiom Nexus, Cy-Kill went through processing the same as any offworlder. Transcendent: Part 1 TFWikiFavicon.png

As he acclimated himself to the Offworlder Zones, Cy-Kill began recruiting allies for his cause. A trio of Aurex Cluster Transformers called the Instigation Mini-Con Team were his first recruits. Pow Wow, Odd Ball, and Breez were soon joined by former Decepticons Clutch and Warpath. Finally, Cy-Kill ventured into the Heap and challenged the leader of an infamous band of Uniend cluster Predacons. Cy-Kill beat Fright Face in single combat, winning his loyalty. So impressed with the dedication of his new troops was Cy-Kill that he recreated the Puzzler combination technology, turning his Predacon followers into the giant Monsterous.

After securing his minions, Cy-Kill and Clutch planned a raid on TransTech scientist Shockwave's laboratory to liberate research for how to convert sparks to his cause. Swindle, Swindle, and Swindle also provided him with a Verronian Warp Star. Renegade Rhetoric 2015/10/15

Meanwhile, Cy-Kill secured time on the air for the ANN. The unsuspecting (and lax) Rook recruited him as a fill-in host for "Ask Vector Prime", ANN's most popular feature. Cy-Kill couldn't pass up unrestricted and largely unmonitored access to the airwaves, and began spreading the Renegade message of rebellion. Renegade Rhetoric 2015/10/13

He also made contact with a mysterious Renegade from another reality, able to assist him in returning home. Renegade Rhetoric 2015/10/17

Cy-Kill's forces made a successful raid on Shockwave's research and development facility in Lower Tesarus. Traffic was backed up for megacycles. Renegade Rhetoric 2015/10/18

After several days of Renegade Rhetoric on the air, someone at the OZSA actually listened to the broadcast. They realized Cy-Kill was an "obscure faction leader" and likely responsible for the attack on Shockwave's laboratory. Cheetor and an OZSA team stormed the broadcast booth, but Cy-Kill and his Renegades were ready for them. Having acquired an abundance of new troops and resources, Cy-Kill summoned Gong (his mysterious ally) and returned to Level 1. Renegade Rhetoric 2015/10/21

Opportunity Knocks Part 2

"Brain Problem Situation"[edit]

Cy-Kill and the Renegades made an alliance with Gog of planet Moebius, organizing a series of bases around the unusually shaped world. By universal coincidence, these bases somehow worked with the planet to create a crude Dimensional Interfacer, and began drawing power extra-dimensionally from 21 stratas away. Optimus Prime and the Autobots of that universe tracked the multiversal drain, and chose to investigate it in new bodies as Spy Changers.

When the Spy Changers arrived on the GoBots' Earth, a misunderstanding led to a fight between the Spy Changers and Guardians, so Cy-Kill's Renegades joined the battle on the side of the Spy Changers. Quickly realizing Optimus Prime was a heroic fool cast in the image of Leader-1, Cy-Kill nevertheless maintained an alliance with the Spy Changers to keep them opposed to the Guardians. Prime was no fool, however, and soon recognized Cy-Kill's true nature. The Spy Changers and Guardians formed their own alliance, and the Renegade bases on Moebius were destroyed, saving the Spy Changers' reality. Brain Problem Situation

"Echoes and Fragments"[edit]

Sideways and Gong attempted to have some fun by mingling the universal streams of a GoBots reality with those of a Transformers reality during the events leading to the latter's first encounter with Unicron. As a result, Cy-Kill naturally found himself playing out the role of Decepticon emperor of destruction, Megatron.

When Optimus Prime prepare to make a special run to Autobot City on Earth from Moonbase One, Cy-Kill's spy Snoop was there to intercept the new orders. Cy-Kill congratulated her on her espionage skills while simultaneously mocking Zero for his past failures. The Renegades attacked the Autobot Command Center en route to Earth, killing the crew of Prowl, Brawn, and Ratchet, while keeping Ironhide as a potential bargaining chip.

As they reached Earth, however, the hole in the Command Center was spotted from Lookout Mountain, and the Renegades were forced to begin their attack before penetrating the Autobot defenses. Although the battle continued through the night, Sideways and Gong's antics shuffled Cy-Kill out of reality, replacing him and his troops with Decepticons, now attacking Guardian City.

Cy-Kill toy.jpg
  • Cy-Kill (GoBots, 1983/1985)
    • Enemy Robot Leader
    • ID Number: 01
    • Accessories: Wheel (2), engine block
A straight import of the Machine Robo Bike Robo toy, one of the original batch of Machine Robo figures designed by Popy prior to Bandai taking over the line, Cy-Kill transforms from robot to futuristic motorcycle. Unlike the majority of GoBots figures, Cy-Kill requires partsforming, as his wheels move to his shoulders and his engine block is removed when converting to robot mode. Due to this, the rubber tires, the extensive chrome detailing (even simply moving his arms causes chrome to rub off in the shoulder joint), and the easily-lost knee stickers, loose Cy-Kill figures are often found incomplete or damaged. Cy-Kill was released in the first series of GoBots figures in 1983, and was re-released in 1985 with a hologram sticker.

  • Renegade Gift Pack #1 (GoBots Gift Pack, 1985)
    • Accessories: Wheel (2), engine block

The very first of the original six figure wave, Cycle Man was released by Bandai Australia during the second quarter of 1983. He remained identical to the original Bike Robo toy, albeit packaged on a blue backing card.

Convertible Model Kit[edit]

  • Cy-Kill
An adaptation of the MOSPEADA Bike Suit model kit, when fully assembled it can convert between robot and motorcycle-and-rider modes.


  • For the cartoon's pilot mini-series, Cy-Kill's animation model has four fingers on each hand, and black handlebars on his shoulders. For the series proper, he was refined to have five fingers and grey handlebars, but in practise, his fingers would constantly fluctuate between four and five throughout the show's run. Similarly, animators often differed on how to depict his eyes: sometimes they were tiny orange pupils floating in empty black sockets, while other times, they were featureless orange eyeballs merely ringed in a black "domino mask." An occasional recurring error would even give him orange eyeballs with pupils, represented by a black outline.
  • Cy-Kill's Cybertronian-style body from the "Cataclysm universe" is modeled on Wreck-Gar from the 2010 Transformers toyline with the head of Dragstrip from the Combiner Wars toyline.
