Back on Cybertron, Grapple's building designs were considered works of art. He realizes that now, in an alien environment on Earth, his ideas are limited by the necessities of war. Nevertheless, he still takes enormous pride in what he does and strives for beauty and quality in all his creations. His problem is that he cares too much; he often succumbs to severe depression should one of his constructions be destroyed in the course of battle.
During most of the war he help build Autobot Cities on many planets and during a battle on Hoth he got petrified by Gigatron when the Autobots tried to team up against Gigatron. He was later unpetrified after Gigatrons defeat.
Grapple participated in the battle of Korriban where he help defeat Devastator and the Terrorcons but was badly injured by Darth Grievous.
Grapple and Hoist were hailed as heros as they help rebuild the Jedi Temple on Coruscant and build a space bridge to connect the two universes together.
In Darth Grievous's evil vision of the future Grapple and Hoist were killed during a Sith onslaught at the Autobots last stand.
In vehicular mode, Grapple can lift up to 35 tons and position massive objects with uncanny precision and grace. In robot mode, he uses a high temperature arc-welder rifle that shoots a stream of concentrated infrared energy as it slices through and/or fuses its targets. He can launch explosive rockets a distance of 4.5 miles from the hand socket in each of his wrists. He can also use an energon whip.
