Snarl appears with the rest of the Dinobots in the 2012 video game Transformers: Fall of Cybertron . Snarl is present when the Lightning Strike Coalition Force travels to the Sea of Rust to find out that Shockwave had abducted a tower used by ancient Cybertronians. However, during the investigation, a swarm of Insecticons attack them, and ultimately kill Sludge. Snarl and the others become Shockwave's experiments, resulting in their transformation into Dinobots. Snarl is tortured by Sharpshot, the insecticon leader, until Grimlock frees him. Snarl, Slug and Swoop witness the collapse of Shockwave's tower, with Grimlock trapped in the tower. Snarl was voiced by Sam Reigel.
Despite his chunky looking design and weighty die-cast body, Snarl is prone to a number of major and minor damages. His hind legs are held closed by a small clip on the transparent shin piece, which breaks easily and often. His tail halves are stabilized by two pairs of thin silver pegs that make the joint click into place. Often, these pins are broken or missing, but unnoticed due to their inconspicuous location inside of the joint, visible from Snarl’s back. When handling vintage samples, this breakage can be avoided by applying outward pressure at the hinge and rotating the tail half slowly.
