Renegade Rhetoric[edit]

Hans-Cuff and his security officers Dozer and Scratch were patrolling the Guardian Council chambers when they responded to a blast. They found the Robo Rebel cadets standing over the prone form of Zeemon, recently blasted in the chest. The Rebels were arrested for further investigation. Rebels Without A Circuit

When the Rock Lords visited Gobotron, some suspicious sabotage drew condemnations from Turbo. When Leader-1 was injured in a blast, Turbo assumed command and had Hans-Cuff arrest Rock Roller on charges. On the Rocks

"Brain Problem Situation"[edit]

When the Autobot Spy Changers first arrived on Strata 22, Turbo mistakenly assumed they were Renegades. Hans-Cuff was one of the Guardians he assembled to attack and capture the Spy Changers. Brain Problem Situation

"Echoes and Fragments"[edit]

In an unstable hybrid universe that incorporated both GoBots and Transformers, Hans-Cuff was aboard a Guardian shuttle bound for Earth when Megatron attacked and hijacked the ship. The Decepticons executed him while seizing the ship.

(Hans-Cuff only suffered this fate retroactively due to the machinations of Sideways and Gong. When the events actually took place in this hybrid timeline, it was an Autobot crew who were attacked by Renegades.) Echoes and Fragments
