If Transformers were humans, Roadgrabber would be that creepy kid who likes pulling the wings off flies. There's nothing he likes better than to open fire on a group of Autobots and watch them die slowly and horribly. Nothing horrifies him more than suffering injury or death himself, though, so he'll do all this from the safety of his Pretender shell. He'll only leave it to watch his victims die up-close - and even then, only when they're in too much agony to fight back.

IDW comics continuity
As part of a Decepticon infiltration unit on Nebulos, Roadgrabber witnessed the coming of Thunderwing. As the rampaging Pretender devastated the planet, Roadgrabber accompanied his teammates to fight the monster but despite pummeling Thunderwing with their combined firepower, the Decepticons were powerless to stop him. In the course of the battle, Thunderwing hit Roadgrabber with Ruckus's corpse, sending him crashing through a building.
