|Specifics: Fictional appearances|
Hun-Gurrr is the leader of the Terrorcons and would be quite the model Decepticon and military strategist if he could just stop stuffing his two mouths. Hun-Gurrr is a terrible glutton, constantly filling his stomach with as much energy and materials as he can find. He only ever stops his insatiable feeding frenzies to fulfill his other desire: wanton destruction. In this capacity he is quite adept as a military leader, although his underlings are sometimes unable to understand his commands when Hun-Gurrr has stuffed his face(s) full of fallen Autobots.
Hun-Gurrr can combine with the other Terrorcons to form Abominus.

Marvel Comics continuity
Hun-Gurrr and the Terrorcons travelled to Nebulos with Scorponok, serving as his primary minions besides the Headmasters and Targetmasters. While battling the Autobots at the Nursery, Hun-Gurrr showed that even he won't eat some food when he caught Crosshairs' rocket-propelled grenades in his twin heads and then immediately spit them back out at his opponent. The Decepticons eventually left Nebulos for Earth, and entered into talks with Ratbat's crew who were already stationed there. The talks didn't go too well. Looking out the window of their starship, Hun-Gurrr and Triggerhappy saw the Predacons attacking Scorponok and his entourage. They rallied their fellow Decepticons and led them out into a Decepticon Civil War against Ratbat's troops. Soon after, Hun-Gurrr and the Terrorcons were destroyed battling Starscream.
Marvel UK future timelines
By 2008, Hun-Gurrr was repaired and serving under Shockwave's command on Cybertron when ol' one-eye was assassinated by the minions of Unicron, leaving Scourge and Cyclonus to lead the Decepticons into an ill-advised conflict with the Autobots. It was Hun-Gurrr who pointed out to Soundwave when Cyclonus and Scourge fled the field of battle, and together they then sounded the retreat for all the Decepticons. Later, Hun-Gurrr is seen among Soundwave's top generals and sub-commanders rocketing into battle.
In 2009, Hun-Gurrr and the Terrorcons carried out Soundwave's important plan to ransack Earth and leech energy out of the planet itself. Hun-Gurrr showed more competence than the other Terrorcons, forcing them stop attacking human settlements for fun when they should be working. Amusingly, he also reacted quickly after overhearing humans wondering where the Autobots were, and announced to the fleshlings that the Autobots had been their advance guard, softening up the population for the kill. Heh. Decepticon humor.
After the Autobots destroyed their energy leech machine, Soundwave and the Terrorcons followed them back to Autobot City and found an open trans-time dimensional portal back to 1989. Hun-Gurrr insisted they follow the Autobots back into the past and seek revenge, and Soundwave agreed in order to maintain a good relationship with his men. Once there, however, they learned of the all-encompassing timestorm, and its threat to the entire timestream. Realizing the threat was too large to handle themselves, Soundwave and Hun-Gurrr had the Terrorcons quietly extract themselves from the battle with Galvatron and his allies, and transported back to 2009.
American cartoon continuity
Hun-Gurrr and the rest of the Terrorcons were first encountered when Galvatron went to Unicron's head to acquire anti-electrons. During a fight with the Autobots, the Terrorcons did a decent job of fighting them, with Hun-Gurrr grabbing Rodimus Prime with his mouths. However, Grimlock created the Technobots, and Hun-Gurrr ordered the Terrorcons to merge into Abominus. The Technobots merged into Computron, but Abominus grabbed Computron. The Autobot combiner defeated Abominus by vibrating, forcing Abominus to separate back into his component Terrorcons.
Hun-Gurrr and the Terrorcons were next seen in the employ of the Quintessons, attacking rogue trader Dirk Manus. At some point, the Quintessons have installed an automatic timer on one or all of the Terrorcons, limiting the time they can spend combined as Abominus.
Hun-Gurrr was one of the Primitives summoned to fight Tornadron. During the interaction with the Primitives, Hun-Gurrr picked fights with everyone for any possible reason. While stuck on the world of Primacron's assistant, Hun-Gurrr attempted to fight Tornadron by spitting chewed-up rocks at the energy being. This was actually not an entirely unreasonable tactic, given that Tornadron was plainly feeding off the energy weapons all of the other Primitives were using against him. It didn't work, though.
Japanese cartoon continuity
The Headmasters cartoon
- Voice actor: ???
Hun-Grrr and his Terrorcons were among the scattered Decepticons that the newly arrived Serpent O.R. united in his bid to take over Cybertron. He fought against the Autobots and later took on Optimus Prime himself with several other combiner team leaders-and was promptly knocked out.
He only regained consciousness when the battle was over, and not sure what was going on, decided to kill the weakened Optimus Prime anyway... only to be blasted through the chest by the 70mm cannon on Cover Girl's A.W.E. Striker. Oh bummer...
IDW comics continuity
Back before the war, Hun-Gurrr fought for Megatron in illegal gladiatorial deathmatches.
In the present, he's the president of the Official Sixshot Fanclub. He and the other Terrorcons were sent to Mumu-Obscura, but were taken prisoner by the Reapers to lure Sixshot to the planet. The Reapers offered membership to their little club so long as Sixshot destroyed the Terrorcons. When they thought Sixshot was seriously considering the offer, Hun-Gurrr tried to persuade Sixshot that the Decepticon war machine didn't need the Reapers, as he already had a group of misfit friends in the Terrorcons. He was left speechless when Sixshot demonstrated his skill to the Reapers by intentionally missing the Terrorcons, and the Reapers allowed the Decepticons to leave in peace.
- Hun-Gurrr (Terrorcon, 1987)
- Team ID number: TR5
- Japanese ID number: D-79
- Accessories: "Sonic Stun Gun", Abominus' head, chest shield, 2 fists (left & right), 2 feet (left & right)
- Hun-Gurrr transforms into a white/grey and purple two-headed (rather tailless) dragon. He has plenty of articulation for a Generation One toy in this mode, located mostly in the beast mode necks, and this extends to his robot mode, with multiple points in his arms and legs. One can attach Abominus' chest plate onto his shoulder in robot mode. Hun-Gurrr combines with his fellow Terrorcons to form Abominus, serving as the super-robot's torso. He can also combine with any other Transformers that use the Scramble City-style connection system.
- There is a later-run variant of Hun-Gurrr which does not have the rubsign indent on his bicep/hind leg.
- Abominus (1987)
- Japanese ID number: D-84
- Hun-Gurrr was also available in a giftset with the rest of the Terrorcons.
- Special Team Leaders (Multi-pack, 2008)
- Hun-Gurrr is a redeco of the Cybertron Legends of Cybertron Scourge toy, transforming into a robotic three-headed dragon. He is available only in a Target-exclusive five-pack with miniature versions of combiner-team leaders Hot Zone, Razorclaw, Scattorshot, and Silverbolt.
- The spelling of Hun-Gurrr's name has varied a lot. The spelling used for the title of this article appears on the toy's packaging and instructions, and in the 1987 toy catalog. Conversely, the toy's tech specs, the 1988 toy catalog, Blot's Transformers Universe profile, Dreamwave's More Than Meets The Eye entry for the character and IDW publications like Spotlight: Sixshot and The Ark all spelled it Hun-Grrr. Finally, the Marvel Comics and animated series scripts spelled it Hun-Grr except Brothers in Armor!!, where he was Hun-Garr. Phew.
- Hun-Gurrr's character art shows that he has an aborted base mode. The toy is capable of assuming this mode, but it doesn't look like much of anything. It does explain why the toy has knees that otherwise would not be needed for transformation, a feature that is not shared by many Generation One toys.
- Hun-Gurrr is not Hungarian. He's Hun-Gurrrian.
