Back on Cybertron, Silverhound worked for Thunderhoof as one of his many enforcers. He was eventually arrested and put in a stasis pod aboard the Alchemor. After the ship crashed on Earth, the Autobots tracked him to a carnival, where Bumblebee tried to corral him with Strongarm recovering on the ground. Though it remains unknown, Bumblebee reports to Fixit that Silverhound's audio recepter was damaged. Silverhound managed to overpower Bumblebee and Strongarm as he almost fired on them with his arm canon. He redirected Grimlock's charge, so that the Dinobot landed squarely in the middle of the carnival. While the Autobots desperately tried to maintain their cover, Silverhound tried to flee and was blasted into submission by Strongarm. He was then dragged back to the Autobots' base and placed back in a stasis pod.
