GoBots

Zeemon is a heroic Guardian GoBot, the first of the GoBeings to become a GoBot.

Abilities

Like most GoBots, Zeemon has numerous abilities because of his 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 once was able to turn into a car, but due to an injury he sustained in battle he is unable to change form any more.

Reception

Fictional biography

Totally awesome and awfully strong, Zeemon is prepared to fight to the bitter end. He's not about to let the enemy GoBots rule the Earth-or any other planet.

Animated series

Zeemon in Challenge of the GoBots

Zeemon appears in Challenge of the GoBots episode 1, "Battle for GoBotron". He is among the leaders of the Guardians planning to stop the Renegades. It should be noted that due to animation errors the Renegade Herr Fiend appears identical to Zeemon in the pilot series.

Zeemon appears in "Lost on GoBotron" episode 6.

Zeemon appears in "Nova Beam" episode 13 working with Staks and Pathfinder on GoBotron when information came in that the sun of the planet Nirolac had become unstable.

In episode 16 "Doppelganger" Cy-Kill, Cop-Tur, Crasher and Snoop attack Leader-1, Turbo, Scooter and Small Foot on Earth. Crasher wounds Small Foot. After attaining recordings of the Guardians the Renegades retreated. Using the recordings Cy-Kill has Dr. Go program robot duplicates of the Guardians. Demonstrating Space Bender weapon to Unecom, Leader-1 learns that the Renegades are attacking Washington. The Renegades ambush Leader-1 and replace him with his duplicate. Leading the Command Center back to GoBotron and getting rid of Scooter and Small Foot the Renegades release duplicates of Path Finder, Rest-Q, Van Guard and Turbo. Small Foot and Scooter are able to capture the Turbo duplicate and learn where their friends are being held. Cy-Kill replaces Good Knight. Using the duplicate Turbo the Guardians infiltrate the Renegade base, free the captured Guardians and escape from the Renegade guards Spoons and Fitor. Although blocked by the Renegades, Scooter uses a hologram of Zod to make the Renegades flee. Making it back to GoBotron the Guardians are attacked by the Guardian duplicates. The real Guardians are able to defeat their duplicates with the aid of the real Zeemon, Hans-Cuff and Rest-Q. Cy-Kill arrives in Thrustor with more duplicates, but Small Foot is able to stop with robots using the Space Bender, which fuses their robot brains. [1]
