Before Snarl and his fellow Dinobots were trapped on Earth thousands of years ago he was a silent and unhappy, often sticking to himself and rarely interacting with others, including his fellow Dinobots. He preferred to leave the important and strategic thinking to others and would just blindly follow the orders of Grimlock, making him the Dinobot commanders favorite solider. However, that was before the actions of Grimlock trapped Snarl and the other Dinobots in a river of molten lava. Now reawakened and aware of what has transpired Snarl has changed. He no longer blindly follows Grimlock and he has learned the harsh lesson of how important it is to think for himself. Now he questions Grimlock’s every action and he no longer lets someone else do the thinking for him. Regardless of these changes that have taken place inside of Snarl’s spark and processor he feels trapped in an alternate mode he despises and he still desperately wants to return to Cybertron. His only respite comes when he is locked in combat with the Decepticons.
Snarl is a very physically powerful Autobot, but as a Dinobot he is only the fourth strongest of them, but he has the ability to greatly increase his strength due to the solar panels on his back. These panels that are on his back in both his robot and alternate modes collect solar power and convert it to energy, augmenting his strength making him up to ten times as powerful as he regularly is. While he is in his dinosaur mode he is capable of channeling this collected energy into concentrated blasts of energy from the spikes on his tail. His tail is also very powerful while he is in dinosaur mode, and even without strength augmentation it can shatter a 20 square foot concrete block with one swipe. Snarl also has considerable defensive capabilities. His armour is very thick and designed so that it can deflect enemy fire. He is armed with an energo sword, a long ranged laser rifle, and a missile launcher in robot mode.
Snarl often forgets about his weaknesses without the augmentation solar power makes to his strength and he can find himself stuck in situations that are more then he can handle alone. Although Snarl is no starting think for himself he has begun to second guess himself, which can lead to critical indecision on the battlefield, or leading him to turn to others to make up his mind forever when he can’t come to a decision. Despite his loss of faith in Grimlock as a leader, Snarl may still follow the Dinobot leader like he once did only to later question the Dinobot’s leader on the battlefield and disobey orders, often causing potential problems.
