In the story Cultural Appropriation by Fun Publications it was revealed that Apollo, Breez, Bullet, Decker Decker, Hi-Way, Jack-Attack, Loco, Pow Wow and Vain Train were sent to explore Level 29 when the Cataclysm threatened to destroy the GoBots home universe.

Echoverse

Breez was featured in the 2016 Ask Vector Prime story Echoes and Fragments, set during the events of The Transformers: The Movie. The manipulations of the evil Gong and Sideways resulted in various GoBots, Rock Lords and Starriors swapping places with characters during the events of that film. Vector Prime dodged Breez and Pow Wow as they guarded an entrance to Cybertron's interior.[3]

Rhetoricverse

Breez was mentioned in the Fun Publications 2015 Ask Vector Prime Facebook series when it was hosted by Cy-Kill. It is revealed Breez was a member the Instigation Mini-Con Team from the Aurex universal cluster (Unicron Trilogy) recruited by Cy-Kill as part of his Renegade army in Axiom Nexus.

Cy-Kill thinks Breez has anger management issues, which he is happy to exploit and also thinks Breez would get on well with Stallion or Bad Boy.

When the TransTech authorities attempted to arrest Cy-Kill he called his new Renegade troops into action. Cy-Kill ordered Gong transport the Renegades away.[4]

In the episode 58 story "Opportunity Knocks Part 2" Cy-Kill chronicled his return to "Level 1", his home universal stream, just as the Guardians were staging an attack on Rogue Star. Cy-Kill and his Renegade recruits from Axiom Nexus joined Fitor, Spoons and Stretch in repelling an attack by Courageous, Leader-1, the Guardian Command Centers and the new Guardian Academy graduates Beamer, Guide Star and Sky Fly. During the battle Monsterous was able to best Courageous and tore though the Command Centers, but a ploy from Leader-1 tricked Cy-Kill into unleashing a massive blast which struck Monsterous, shattering the combiner into his components.
