The Supplementary Archive includes all of the appended Transformers Universe entries, consisting of those which were printed in the later issues of the US Transformers comic during 1987-1990. Some additional "bonus" characters are included below. These characters are from the Transformers: Generations book published in Japan.

Transformers Universe Decepticon

HORRI-BULL

Allegiance: DECEPTICON

Sub-Group: HEADMASTER

Master Component: KREB

Function: GROUND TROOPER

First Comic Appearance: TRANSFORMERS #46

"Smash all that stands and trample the rest."

Profile: If ever there were a Decepticon worth avoiding, Horri-Bull is it. Its not just that he's a bad tempered bully with a penchant for smashing through anything (or anyone) in his path and then coming back and grinding them into dust. No, why so many Transformers (be they Autobot or Decepticon) tend to go out of their way to avoid Horri-Bull, is that when it comes to personal hygiene, Horri-Bull leaves a lot to be desired. Even he can't remember the last time he had a steam bath, and his body is coated with several years worth of grime and grease. To make matters worse, a glitch in his internal fuel lines means that he continually regurgitates used oil as a black sludge that then drips (or worse, sprays) from his mouth as he talks. This, combined with the fact that he has a habit of belching noxious clouds of black smoke from his nose goes some way to explaining why he is such a solitary character. Many wonder why Horri-Bull doesn't at least wash, or have his fuel lines repaired. The fact is, he likes being an odious slob, feeling it somehow sets him apart from the run-of-the-mill Decepticon warrior. He's ideally paired with Nebulan partner, Kreb, a former talk-show host with obnoxious manners. If it's disgusting, Kreb will revel in it. His blantant rudeness rounds off the equation, making Horri-Bull a thoroughly unpleasant specimen.

Abilities: Though somewhat limited in the brain department, Horri-Bull is both very strong and very tough, (though it's rumored that a good percentage of his armor plating is actually dirt). He's a lumbering engine of destruction, wielding (in robot mode) a concussion blaster with an effective range of over twelve miles. In bull mode, he's even more densely armored, and uses a tail flame thrower to incinerate his enemies. If Horri-Bull wishes to hide himself from enemy view (and it's not an option he often feels constrained to use), he can emit an effective --if odorous-- smokescreen by exhaling dense clouds of black smoke. He's by no means fast, but he always gets the job done!

Weaknesses: Horri-Bull has few actual weaknesses, but does tend to find himself isolated from back-up in battles. It's also said that if the wind is blowing in the wrong direction, Horri-Bull is something of a liability, as his foes can smell him a mile off!
