In challenging a kzin, a simple scream of rage is sufficient. You scream and you leap.

Growl is a sadistic bully who finds that his desire to maim and kill suits him perfectly for the Military Patrol. He occasionally makes noises about replacing Bombshock as team leader, but that's mostly just because everyone else says that, and he doesn't want to look weak. He'll actually go on happily following orders forever, so long as they involve killing things.[1]

French name (Canada): Grognon

Growl was one of the Micromasters who sided with the Decepticons after his construction. He was seen working with Skystalker after the Interstellar Assault Commander temporarily deactivated Shockwave and overthrew his command. Growl's main duty seemed to be carrying around Shockwave's severed head, and taking it wherever it needed to go. Victims of the Revolution
