Beast Wars II
Apache is a cool, composed authority figure, but he's also shown a lightly eccentric side since he began transforming into a mandrill, snarling when upset. Recently, he and the suddenly cautious Lioconvoy have locked horns over the execution of operations. His entire body is a mass of weapons, and his "Mode 3" fortress mode's fusillades are powerful indeed. He also enjoys heavy metal music.
Apache stands 2.9 meters tall and weighs 2.2 tons. He has a top running speed of 50 kilometers per hour in beast mode, but 45 kilometers per hour in robot mode.
Apache first appears in episodes #1 of Beast Wars II, called "The Birth of a New Army."
Apache appeared as a member of The Pack leader by Leo Prime in Beast Wars - The Ascending. Apache appeared in Beast Wars: The Ascending #1 where he was in Cybertronian mode on Cybertron. In issue #2 Leo Prime lead The Pack to Earth 70,000 B.C. to rescue Razorbeast. The Pack were reformatted into beast modes and landed in the middle of a fight between the Maximals and Predacons. Once on Earth Apache attacked Insecticon.
Apache appeared in issue #1 of IDW Publishing's Beast Wars Sourcebook.
In "The Maximal Brainwashing Project" Starscream and BB were able to capture Diver and the Tasmanian Kid, brainwashing them into serving the Predacons. Meanwhile Leo Prime, Apache and Scuba were able to capture Dirge and Thrust. The shock of being damaged in capture had the side effect of making the Predacons think they were Maximals. Diver and the Kid were able to ambush the Maximals, allowing Galvatron to gain the upper hand on Lio Convoy, but the Maximals were aided by Dirge and Thrust. Furious that Lio had seemingly stolen his brainwashing idea Starscream had BB attacked the Maximals. Megastorm found the whole turn of events amusing and planned to use his main cannon to destroy all the Maximals and Predacons in the conflict, becoming the leader of the Predacons. His attack took so long to charge Diver was able to ruin it with a water geyser. The explosion was enough to shock the brainwashed Maximals back to their senses. Galvatron and the Predacons retreated with Dirge and Thrust in tow.

- The toy of Beast Wars B'Boom and Beast Wars II Apache were identical, although both are treated as separate characters.

According to the show bible for Beast Wars Second Apache stands 2.9 meters tall. With a toy standing 18 centimeters tall, it would have a scale of about 1:16. A green Lucky Draw version of the figure was also released.
