The name or term Snarl refers to more than one character or idea. For a list of other meanings, see Snarl (disambiguation).

Snarl is a Maximal and an Autobot from the Beast Machines and Universe portion of the Generation One continuity family.

A tactical genius specializing in devastating ambushes, Snarl provides the technorganic Maximals a sound mind for strategy that serves them well in their war against Megatron. He has an innate awareness of the world around him that makes him almost impossible to surprise. He considers the Vehicons beneath him as opponents and wishes to try his mind directly against the scheming Megatron.

By the Universe conflict, less than 3 deca-cycles after the reformatting of Cybertron, he has become a Matrix Templar, a student of Alpha Trion and servant of the will of Primus himself. His training as a templar has granted him the mystical ability to see others sparks and sense their weaknesses. Though an eager warrior for Primus his desire for battle might prove his undoing in the battle against Unicron.

  • Snarl (Deluxe, 2000)
    • Accessories: Tail/Ax

Whadda they got that I haven't got?

Snarl transforms into a technorganic lion, and in robot mode can wield an ax formed from his tail. Both arms house gimmicks: His right arm has a geared wheel in it, allowing for ax chopping action. His left houses a spring, which launches his arm forward about half an inch for a "power punch" attack. Interestingly, he shares his gimmick (and general transformation scheme) with fellow Maximal Cheetor, but does it all better. He even stands without toppling like a house of cards.

In beast mode, Snarl was apparently given the molding to allow for light piping, but ultimately has painted eyes on both of his releases.
