Kup, as in Pickup Truck, is an old warhorse. A grizzled Autobot veteran with ten thousand tall tales from his one thousand adventures and a motto or word of advice for any situation. He is as brave as they come and as loyal, and sometimes as crotchety as a wet hen - especially when Hot Rod's adolescent thoughtlessness propels them into dangerous areas. Kup loves the Dinobots because they love hearing his tales of glory. When he transforms, Kup's vehicular mode is somewhat squarish and "old-fashioned" compared to some of the sleeker, "later model" Autobots, but he has no complaint about that. He sees himself as a seasoned campaigner with much knowledge to impart and he imparts it whether or not anyone has asked for it. He is sort of the Falstaff to Hot Rod's Prince Hal and he likes the role. Kup was in a battle on a planet that has a short nighttime and daytime cycle defending the Autobot base at night while attacking at daytime.
In the battle of Ilum Kup witness the destructive capabilities of Darth Grievous as he see him killing most of his friends and jedi partners. He was rescued by Slingshot and lived to tell the young bots the disaster on Ilum.
Kup was seen on Cybertron racing with the other Autobot Cars and being hailed as a hero at the end of the Transformers Wars.
In Darth Grievous's evil vision of the future Kup was killed when his ship was destroyed by Sith fighters.
In robot mode, he carries an old-style musket laser that shoots bursts of metal-corrosive hydrochloric acid. Range: 5 miles. Speed: 100 mph.
