The female Crasher was one of Cy-Kill's most loyal Renegades, despite a having somewhat manic personality. One of her favored pastimes is participating in demolition derbies. Under interrogation, she admitted to having a crush on Leader-1 before the Guardians and Renegades began their struggle. Unlike most Gobots, she rarely seems to use her hand-mounted blasters, instead using a trademark attack wherein she stamps her foot on the ground to create a powerful earthquake-style energy discharge that could track its victim in much the same manner as a heat-seeking missile. Crasher's seeming state of near-madness effectively renders her fearless, and she has an ongoing grudge with the Guardian Turbo, rarely avoiding a chance to battle him. However, she tends to take any defeat or challenge very personally.
Despite her gender, unlike many 1980s female cartoon characters, Crasher is shown to be treated equally compared to her male counterparts, and is feared by most Guardians.
Crasher appears in almost every episode, usually as a featured character.
It is revealed that once Crasher enjoyed Gobot demolition derbies and at one time had a crush on Leader-1.
