In a Gongo holding cell Amphotron and Shortstop banter at each other after being captured during a Gongo Skirmish. During the discussion, Amphotron tells the origin story of the Nonocons.

Billions of years ago, the Nonocons were simplistic robots located on a planet far away in a distant galaxy. Serving as slaves to various organic life forms it's not until Skyscream and Low-Tone show up that Amphotron begins to grow as a fighter robots for his owner Jatto. Under Skyscream's advice Jatto enters Amphotron enter the local robot fighting tournament.

At Latta's shop Amphotron and Skyscream meet Mercy while getting upgrade parts of Amphotron. They discover Mercy has special abilities similar to local humans of the area. Later, as the they scour a crashed ship for parts, Amphotron discovers a fashion canon that quickly becomes a part of him.

Amphotron has his first battle and defeats Creator. He then proceeds to move up the ranks but is unable to bring himself to destroy any other robots, until he ends up fighting his friend Mercy. After Mercy is seriously injured during the battle, he demands Latta repair him. He reached inside his own body pulling out a component and installs it into Mercy saving the robot's life.
