'''Groove''' is a free spirit, man. A full fuel tank and an open sky above him is all this chopper needs to mellow out and enjoy whatever good vibrations the open road brings his way. One relaxed, easy-going, dude, Groove is also a bit of a loner in his soul. He doesn't make a lot of attachments to others, preferring the freedom of an empty highway, but he is sure to always be there with the love when his Protectobot teammates need his help. Groove doesn't like combat, or conflict in general, and is always ready to give peace a chance.

Marvel Comics continuity

Streetwise and the other Protectobots were created on Earth by Wheeljack and the Autobots after they stole a recording of Devastator's combiner transformation sequence and modified it (and after Optimus Prime and Buster Witwicky shared a Matrix-induced vision of the future with the Special Teams in it).

After being brought on-line by Optimus Prime, Groove and his team went on a mission to intercept the Decepticons before they could steal the hydrothermocline from a human industrial plant. Both sides ended up agreeing to do battle in a virtual landscape maintained by the powerful computer system at the plant, so that the Decepticons wouldn't damage their prize and the Autobots could insure the safety of innocent lives. Patrolling the computer-generated area of Multi-World known as the Cloud-Steppes, Groove and Blades were attacked by Combaticons Blast Off and Vortex. When the Decepticon fliers severed the floating roadway Groove was driving on, he shouted at Blades to let him save himself and instead catch the Cloud-Steppers who fell with him. In gratitude, the humanoids unleashed a cloud cover which distracted the Combaticons long enough for Groove to blast them with his photon pistol.

Many months later, Groove happened to put the mode-locked Autobot Blaster down in a storm drain. This simple act set in motion a chain of events that led to words like "Spacehikers" and "Cosmic Carnival". It is Groove's secret shame.
