Dillo is a Maximal Deployer, he reformatted ancient task drone who was found by Nightscream. As one of the Deployers, he is capable of quick transformation abilities. He was taught by an ancient Autobot tracker in the ways of the mace bollo. Unfortunately he only uses it while retreating. He is a bit of a coward, but attempts to maintain a tough outer demeanor.

The redeco of Dillo was—according to store listings—originally supposed to be named "Trench", just as the other two redecoed Deployers were to be renamed. Why this plan changed is unknown. Besides name "Trench" was given to "Excavator Autobot" from film Transformers: The Last Knight. See Trench.

Dillo appeared along with teammates Rav and Mol being rescued by Optimus Primal and Nightscream from Vehicons before joining the Wreckers. Like the other Deployers he is a Spark-less drone; his tech spec describes him as a coward whose confidence Nightscream is trying to bolster.
