Fly Trap is a fictional character from the GoBots series.

GoBots

Fly Trap is a Renegade GoBot. He is one of the many Renegades loyal to Cy-Kill.

The following was printing on the Ask Vector Prime Facebook page on October 18th, 2016, when Cy-Kill was hosting.[1]

Dear Renegade Rhetoric, Can you tell us anything about Scales, Block Head, Fly Trap, or BuggyMan?

Cy-Kill: Fly Trap is a capable trooper, useful because of how easy it is to underestimate him. No one pays any attention to a garbage truck. The worse he smells, the more invisible he is.

Abilities

Like most GoBots, Fly Trap has numerous abilities because of robotic body. He can survive in space and is super-humanly strong and tough. He can fly in robot mode and project energy blasts from his hands. His body heals quickly when supplied with energy. He can turn into a dump truck.

Animated series

Challenge of the GoBots

In the episode 24 "Scooter Enhanced" Scooter and Small Foot join Nick and A.J. to watch a car stunt show which is attacked by Crasher, BuggyMan and Fly Trap. Small Foot fights Buggyman and defeats him, but the Renegades gain the upper hand. The Guardians are rescued by Leader-1 and Turbo who arrive in Power Suits. Cy-Kill vows to gain Power Suits for the Renegades. Scooter decides he needs more firepower, so he has Professor von Joy remove his damaged holo projector in favor of a blaster unit. Screw Head, Bad Boy and Cop-Tur are sent to attack Unecom bases and distract the Guardians while Cy-Kill, Crasher and Scorp attempt to take the suits from the Guardian Command Center. Small Foot and Scooter are able to delay the Renegades until Leader-1 and Turbo return to chase away the Renegades. Realizing he was a better Guardian with his holo projector, Scooter has it reinstalled.[2]

Comics

Fly Trap appeared in the Transformers: Renegade Rhetoric episode 7-8 story "The Hawks of Space", where he helped defend the Renegade base on the dark side of the moon.[3]

Fly Trap 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 swapping places with characters during the events of that film.[4]
