Like most GoBots, Throttle 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 motorcycle.
Revving his engines, Throttle hits the streets full speed. Out to get Cy-Kill, he shifts into gear and takes off like a streak of light after the evil Renegade leader. High-tech with super velocity, Throttle is a stunt-driving GoBot who can stop short, spin, wheelie, shift into robot form, and fly to meet even more challenges!
Throttle appeared in the Challenge of the GoBots episode "The Quest For New Earth".
Throttle appeared in a toy commercial story. The Super GoBots arrived by land, sea and air, with Raizor, Spy Eye, Throttle and Super Couper sought out Vamp, Night Fright and Clutch.
Throttle 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. Tork was among the Guardians defending Guardian City when it was attacked by the Decepticons. Throttle was present when Leader-1 passed on the Guardian Matrix of Leadership to Major Mo.
Throttle appeared among the Guardian forces in "A Spy Among Us" by Telepictures Publications. In the story Cy-Kill had Night Fright attack Super Couper and plant a bugging device on the Guardian. Cy-Kill used the device to overhear information about an incoming robot freighter filled with Zintrinium. As the Renegades continued to anticipate the Guardian's moves, Leader-1 reasoned they were bugged and was able to lead the Renegades into a trap in the freighter's hold by giving them false information. Once the Renegades were trapped inside Leader-1 had Scooter program the ship to fly to the Crab Nebula, giving the Renegades a nice little vacation.
