'''Runamuck''' was very very bored during the years [[Megatron (Armada)|Megatron]] was gone. Having served under him as a spy and messenger for centuries, the peacetimes under [[Autobot]] rule gave him little opportunity for his brand of fun... blowing stuff up.
 
 
With most of Cybertron's population on [[Earth]] due to the appearance of the [[Unicron Singularity]], Runamuck has been given a chance to cause some real havoc, knowing that the Autobots are forbidden from revealing themselves to the inhabitants of the haven planet. He likes striking [[human]] settlements directly under the nose of the hidden Autobots, and relishes their frustration in not being able to use their robot modes to stop him.
 
 
He was once hog-tied by [[Swindle (Cybertron)|Swindle]].
