Bug Bite was a Renegade Gobot who transformed into a yellow Volkswagen Beetle.

Bug Bite is a brilliant yet amoral scientist. He originally belonged to another dimension, specifically a robotic world which was, similarly to Cybertron, consumed by an endless civil war. This war was stopped only when the fate of not only their planet, but their entire universe was threatened by an extradimensional influence. Under the strict supervision of the Guardian Treds, Bug Bite was enlisted to an allied team and sent into the dimension which threatened their own. Bug Bite took a new body and infiltrated the ranks of the Decepticons, hoping to not only discover the source of his home universe's plight, but take calculated revenge.

Animated series

Despite being an early release in the Gobots toyline, Bug Bite had to wait until a later episode, "The Gobots That Time Forgot", to make his debut in the "Challenge of the Gobots" cartoon. Here he featured as the second-in-command to Gunnyr, Renegade ruler of a society of Gobots who live inside Gobotron. They believe themselves to be the planet's only inhabitants, and the two Renegades possess scramblers that give them control of the other Gobots in the underground world. However, when Scooter accidentally discovers the world, Gunnyr and Bug Bite are toppled by the Guardians.

Fun Publications

After being sent to investigate the effect the destroying their universe the team of Gobots accidentally arrived on Transtech Cybertron. After being reformatted to look like an Autobots and Decepticons the team was sent to investigate the effect the destroying their universe. They accidentally arrived on Transtech Cybertron. Finding out that another reality was destroying their own, the team were upgraded and were able to travel on to the world they were seeking.

In Transformers: Timelines volume 2 #2, "Games of Deception", travelling to Earth with a group of Bludgeon's Decepticons (unaware they were being trailed by Ultra Magnus' forces), they met up with Megatron's second-in-command Starscream. Capturing Mirage, Bug Bite then had Starscream, Skywarp and Ramjet implanted and controlled with cerebro shells. Travelling to meet Megatron, Bug Bite had the Decepticon leader and his troops likewise implated with cerebro shells, revealing his plan: he had travelled to Megatron's dimension to take revenge on the Transformers for inadvertently causing so much damage to his home dimension. Unfortunately for him Megatron was more resistant to the effects of the shell than Bug Bite had thought. At that point Magnus' forces arrived, seeking to recue Mirage, and disabled the cerebro shells. In the ensuing three-way battle, Bug Bite tried to reach the gun of the fallen Dirge, only to have his head blown off by a point-blank blast from Megatron.
