GoBots

A Renegade GoBot who turns into a car. He has the same alternate mode and car model as the Transformers character Sideswipe.

Fictional biography

Note: The original GoBot biographies from Tonka portrayed Spoiler as female, but all later fiction has described Spoiler as male.

Spoiler's beautiful, but she's no lady. She loves to spoil a good time. She can't wait to get her hands on Pathfinder and deactivate her forever.

Abilities

Like most GoBots, Spoiler 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 car.

Animated series

After the fall of GoBotron, Spoiler was assigned to an orbiting Command Center to oversee Guardian prisoners. However, when Scooter tampered with the ship, he was deceived into abandoning it with the other Renegades.

He was later humiliated when on board Roguestar, as Scooter and Nick arrived to free the scientist Buddy. Scooter trapped him under a door, allowing Nick to strip enough wiring out of Spoiler to disable the Renegade.

Later Spoiler traveled to Earth to help Crasher destroy Turbo at the Barstow Grand Prix, but the Astro-Beam reversed before he could complete the job.

Comics

Spoiler appeared in Transformers: Renegade Rhetoric episode 11 "On the Rocks".[1]

Spoiler appeared in episode 14 "The Alienapolis Five Million" working with Crasher and Stallion.[2]

Spoiler appeared in episode 17, "Coup de Grunge". A Renegade assault on the Guardian communication hub was repulsed by Courageous, putting Cy-Kill in a foul mood. He vented his frustration on several of his men, which backfired shortly thereafter when the Master Renegade made a bid for leadership. He offered the Renegades four Power Suits and the ability to form their own combiner. Loco, Fly Trap, Screw Head, and Spoiler took him up on his offer and imprisoned Cy-Kill and Cop-Tur. The Renegades assaulted the GoBotron Fortress protecting GoBotron's capital, GoBotolis. Their combined form was defeated by Courageous when the Master Renegade and Loco argued about who should control the giant form. The Guardians derisively nicknamed the combiner "Grungy". The Renegades returned to Rogue Star, only to find Cy-Kill free. The Master Renegade escaped with his ship, but not before Spoiler had managed a full scan of it. Dr. Go was confident that, not only could he duplicate it, he could improve upon it.[3]

Spoiler 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]
