Throughout the animated series Rumble was perceived as tough and full of firepower, but his fellow Decepticons, being much larger, were significantly more powerful. He gave the weaker Autobots, such as Hound, Mirage and Bumblebee hard times on the battlefield, due to their lack of warrior-like capabilities, although in one episode, Hound beat the tar out of Rumble during a huge Autobots/Decepticons battle. Due to his small size and below average intelligence, he displayed a Napoleon complex and often tried to prove his loyalty to Soundwave and Megatron through tough talk and destructive tendencies.

Rumble debuted in the series opener "More Than Meets the Eye pt 1", being used by Soundwave and Starscream to destroy a power station with his piledriver arms, and later to cause a tidal wave that would allow the Decepticons to create energon cubes at a nearby dam. He battled and defeated Hound underwater, although the Autobot would get his revenge later on. Rumble appeared regularly throughout the series, although he rarely had major roles, and was usually called on to create tremors with his arms (such as in "Enter the Nightbird" or "Attack of the Autobots").

One of Rumble's most prominent appearances was in the episode "A Decepticon Raider in King Arthur's Court". Warpath, Hoist and Spike were battling Starscream, Ramjet, Rumble and Ravage in England. Low on power, the Autobots and Decepticons discovered a magical stone formation called the Dragon Mound and were transported back to the year 543 AD. Although Starscream attempted to take over a castle and build a new empire with himself as lord, the help of local knights and a wizard refueled the Autobots, who defeated the Decepticons. After defeating a dragon who nested in the Dragon Mound the Autobots and Decepticons and returned to their own time where they rejoined the fight in modern day England.

Rumble appeared in The Transformers: The Movie, cutting off the Autobot communications alongside Frenzy, Ravage and Ratbat, before battling their Autobot counterparts.

Rumble and Frenzy battle the Autobot Brawn.

According Marvel's Transformers comics, Rumble and Frenzy are brothers. Rumble was one of the Decepticons that originally attacked the Ark and subsequently crashed to Earth. Reconfigured into the Earth mode of a microcassette, he participated in many of the early battles against the Autobots (even being defeated by a robo-suited Buster Witwicky at one point in the U.K. comics). Unfortunately, he accompanied Megatron in his raid against the Autobot base, summarily getting deactivated by Omega Supreme along with Starscream, Skywarp, Thundercracker, Frenzy and Buzzsaw. It would be a while before Rumble was seen again, being freed in U.S. issue #41.

When the Ark crashed to Earth in 1984, Rumble was among the Decepticons on board. Battling the Autobots repeatedly, they were eventually defeated by a combined human-Autobot alliance. They were to be taken back to Cybertron, but were sabotaged by rogue elements of the U.S. military, who wanted to build weapons using Transformers technology. Unable to do this, they began to control the Transformers themselves.Rumble was among the Transformers who briefly fell under the control of the terrorist, Lazarus.


Rumble would not appear until the second miniseries, War and Peace, when both sides were lured to the wilderness in Alaska by a mysterious beacon. Both sides battled until the arrival of a force led by Shockwave and Ultra Magnus, who defeated Megatron and arrested all present as war criminals. Desperate to save their own necks, Frenzy and Rumble both joined up with Shockwave and were assigned by him to guard the badly damaged Megatron. They failed as Starscream was able to dump Megatron's body in space (reminiscent of his fate in the movie). They were then sent by Shockwave on a critical mission — reviving the Stunticons.

They were later co-opted by Starscream and head to Earth with him, along with Soundwave, Skywarp, Thundercracker and the Combaticons. They defeated most of the Autobots still on Earth, but were themselves attacked by Sunstorm. After Starscream defeated him (with aid from the Autobots) he returned to his base to find Soundwave, Rumble and Frenzy acting oddly. The reason why would soon become clear — Megatron had returned, backed by the Predacons, and Soundwave had been taking orders from him all along. Any further tales of Rumble would never be told, as Dreamwave went bankrupt. This article does not cite any references or sources. ...

Transformers/G.I. Joe

Rumble also appeared in Dreamwave's Transformers/G.I. Joe series, as one of the Decepticons allied with Cobra. Reconfigured with the alternate mode of a hand grenade, he was sent to help Cobra forces losing to Grimlock and Roadblock, quickly turning the tide of battle with his piledriver arms. He was defeated when Bumblebee and Scarlett were able to destroy his piledrivers with a hand grenade. Rumble was subsequently helpless when the ground around him, weakened by his earthquakes, collapsed into the sea. Not only does Rumble have an intense hatred of humans, calling them "meat", but he and Frenzy are described as brothers in this continuity as well.

Devil's Due Publishing

In the G.I. Joe vs the Transformers comics printed by Devil's Due Publishing, Rumble was one of the Decepticons discovered by Cobra in the Ark, although they were reactivated later than the others. Frenzy was reprogrammed by Cobra Commander to follow his orders, although he retained his original Cassette and robot alternate modes.

There is an interesting art error here. Rumble appears to get shot through the eye and killed while under Destro's command, yet he is among the Decepticons who break free next issue (and is clearly identified as Rumble by Soundwave). This leads to the possibility that it was intended to be Frenzy, not Rumble, who was killed, and an art error led to their color schemes being mixed up. In any case, Rumble would soon be killed, crushed by Storm Shadow's S.N.A.K.E battlesuit while chasing Destro. Storm Shadow Storm Shadow is a fictional character from the G.I. Joe comics series and television shows. ...

Captured by the guard of the Senator after Megatron's riot at the energon mine, Rumble and Frenzy convinced the unwilling Megatron to help them escape. Breaking free (as the guards didn't know about his piledrivers) and incapacitating the guards, the three fugitives took the ship underground, unaware they had attracted the attention of Sentinel Prime. After getting involved in underground bloodsports in Kaon, Rumble and Frenzy have become awed by Megatron's violence and charisma, and have been shown as loyal acolytes staying by his side.
