In 2010 Headrobots created Hothead. Hothead is an homage to Duros, the Headmaster partner Generation 1 Hardhead. According to the biography for Butcher he and Butcher are enemies.
Headrobots announced Hothead and Iguana in February 2010.
In May 2010 Headrobots announced that Hothead was compatable with the Generation 1 Hardhead toy.
In Undercover!! The Great Drone Counteroffensive Courageous steals a mysterious disc from the evil Headrobots. He uses its powerful algorithm to create Drone from the source codes of himself, Stronghold, Centurion and Hothead. In the story Hothead uses the Generation 1 Hardhead body.
