Fictional biography

As part of the Micromaster Combiner force, each member of the Decepticon Constructor squad can be separated from its partner and re-combined with another Micromaster Combiner to form an incredible new Micromaster Combiner constructor! Can turn raw ideas into structural monsters of hard concrete! Known for constructing monuments at Decepticon headquarters after every Autobot conquest! Enjoy watching the destruction of something beautiful so they can build a frightfully ominous edifice in its place! Together they're unbeatable. When separated, too busy trying to out-design each other. They take pride constructing rather than destroying. Will build anything, anywhere, anytime for the highest bidder! Combine to form crane, dump truck, and ground digger vehicles.

Comics

Dreamwave Productions

Knockout had a biography printed in Dreamwave Productions Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye series.

IDW Publishing

Knockout appears in the IDW Publishing The Transformers: Drift - Empire of Stone mini-series. In these stories he is not a Micromaster.

Having fallen in with Gigatron's forces, Knockout grew disillusioned and had a mind to desert after watching them kill fellow Decepticons. Once Gigatron captured his old buddy Grit, he decided enough was enough and released Grit and his cellmates Drift and Ratchet and gave them their weapons back (their attempt at the old "pretend to be dead to trick to guard into coming in" failed to impress him). Grit then had Knockout go find a way off-planet while he went to take revenge on Hellbat.
