In Japan the toy of Fangry was released as Wilder, one of the Decepticon Headmaster Juniors as part of the series Transformers: Super-God Masterforce. A completely different character in Japan, Wilder was a human who was given a Transtector body by the Decepticon, and could become the head of its robot mode.[1]

Wilder was described as a former biker gang leader who had a rivalry with the Autobot headmaster Junior Go Shooter.[2] He was highly intelligent and malicious, keeping a level head in battle, but did possess a code of honor.

Animated series[edit]

Wilder is leader of the Decepticon Headmaster Juniors in the Masterforce series. He first appeared in episode #4 called "Birth of the Headmaster Juniors."

When the Decepticon leader Devil Z betrayed him and the other Decepticon Headmasters, the Autobot Ginrai saved him and Bullhorn from being killed by Devil Z's bomb.[3]

Swayed by the Autobot's attitude, the Decepticon Headmaster Juniors rebelled against their former leader. Although Wilder and Bullhorn didn't immediately join the Autobots, they were soon aiding their former enemies in battle against the Decepticon forces [4] only for Devil Z to remove their headmaster abilities, and turn their transtectors into independent beings. After Devil Z was killed by God Ginrai the fully robotic Wilder was last seen retreating into space under Overlord's command.[5]
