|"Where are DECEPTICONS? Me GRIMLOCK getting hungry!"|
GRIMLOCK more than lives up to the reputation of his Tyrannosaurus Rex mode. Ill-tempered, powerful, and always ready for a fight, he loves to throw his weight around. He likes the way the ground shakes as he stomps around, and the way people scatter when he roars. He's happiest on DINOBOT Island, where he can stomp and roar to his Spark's content, shattering trees with his tail, and breathing jets of flame into the sky. Every once in a while, though, he prefers to find the biggest, most powerful DECEPTICON he can, and smash its chassis to pieces.

Grimlock Additional Info
Grimlock and the Dinobots were originally intended to appear in Megatron Rising Part Two, but the animation was unusable so their brief battle with Megatron in this episode was left out (according to Marty Isenberg, the Dinobots would have been easily defeated by Megatron to show how powerful Megatron is.)
Other Comic Information
Grimlock's first appearance in the Titan UK Transformers Animated stories is in Transformers #17. In this issue he, along with the other Dinobots, comes to the rescue of the Autobots who have been captured in their own base by Starscream and his clones. The Dinobots are easily able to defeat the army of clones and free the Autobots. In return, Grimlock and the Dinobots stay at the Autobot base until the rainstorm passes. Unfortunately, the forecast is for rain, rain, and more rain.
Grimlock appears again in the second issue of the Transformers Animated comic. In this story he is much worse for wear, having been brought to his knees by a rage virus infected Snarl and Swoop. However, Sari is able to heal him with her key.
(It is possible that this story is meant to take place before the story in Transformers #17, as it would partially explain why Grimlock and the other Dinobots were willing to help Sari save the others - they owed Sari one).
