Q: I heard there was a fourth RoGun. Is this true?

Cy-Kill: Fourth and fifth, yes. Apparently Professor Von Joy created two more, Scope and Shotgun, and upgraded all their language circuits to enable them to more easily communicate with others. Oh, yes, there's quite the merry little RoGun clan.

We discovered this when the Secret Riders decided to prove themselves by attacking our base on Mars. Armed with the RoGuns, they had more firepower than we had anticipated. Fortunately for us, we had made an alliance with the savage Bars Barkas and his Barkhon clan, and were able to capture the interlopers. All would have gone well, had not Throttle managed to befriend Bars Barkas' spindly son, Losa and teach him that there are other paths to greatness besides combat. Losa and Bars Barkas kicked my forces off the planet, much to my chagrin.

  • On December 21st, 2015 the Ask Vector Prime Facebook page posted a fictional list of the unaired episodes of Challenge of the GoBots season 2, which listed "The RoGuns of Mars" as season 2 episode 31, which was supposed to air October 15th, 1986.
  • The name of this episode, as well as the characters of Bars Barkas and Losa, are an obvious play on the Edgar Rice Burroughs novel A Princess of Mars and it's characters Tars Tarkis and Sola.
  • Throttle is included with the Secret Riders, as was established in Guardian Academy.
