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 Autobot

GROTUSQUE

Allegiance: AUTOBOT

Sub-Group: MONSTERBOT

Function: MILITARY STRATEGIST

"It it ain't fun to do, it ain't worth doing."

Profile: Everything's a joke to Grotusque, and --as he says-- why shouldn't it be, when the only thing that frightens him is looking at himself in the mirror! Though he doesn't doubt Primus saw him as part of some great and noble scheme, he does wonder what his creator was thinking of when he designed his creature mode. A bit too much high grade energon the night before, is Grotusque's opinion! This goofy, irreverent outlook on life is as appealing as it is annoying to his fellow Autobots. Sometimes, just sometimes, they wish Grotusque would take something seriously. Even in pitched battle, in dire, possibly terminal situations, he's joking away. But it's not bluster to hide his fear-- Grotusque is not only a topnotch warrior, his courage is legendary. No, it's that Grotusque sees life in general as a joke, and therefore sees no reason to view death any differently. "Why shouldn't combat be fun?" he's been heard to utter. "If it wasn't, I'd be loath to do it!" Though he appears on the surface to be offhand about his duties, Grotusque is a brilliant campaign planner, with a sharp and analytical mind perfectly suited to the complexities of warfare.

Abilities: Though not immensely strong, and --when in robot mode-- fairly plodding, Grotusque's razor sharp mind makes him a foe to be reckoned with. He wields a specially modified vaporator, designed to gassify an opponent's fuel, leaving him to grind to a full stop. His creature mode tusks are made from a hyper-dense alloy that, Autobot scientists believe, is all but indestructible. In creature mode, Grotusque can fly (using his back wings) at speeds of around 45 mph. But the process Is both awkward and fuel consumptive, and he prefers to use his powerful hind legs to bound along, making leaps of around three miles at a time.

Weaknesses: Grotusque's dislike of his creature mode tends to make him reluctant to use it more often than he has to. As a result, he tends to go into battle in his more vulnerable robot mode, leaving himself more exposed to possible injury. Also, Grotusque's wings are quite fragile and are easily damaged.
