    Well? Did hasbro suddenly forget there's a 5th dinobot? At first I thought that they maybe couldn't get a hold of the voice actor, but the dinobots don't really say much throughout the movie, so keeping Snarl quiet would've been fine.

    So what gives?

    Maybe Snarl's manager says Snarl needs a break.
    or
    Maybe Snarl was there... but got covered up by the background cel.

    But there's 3, maybe 4 times you see the Dinobots. Fighting Devastator, on Quintessa (or whatever it's called), fighting Unicron and then at the end, oh wait, 5, on Junkion.

    So yeah, did Grimlock eat him or something?

    From The Transformers: The Movie - Transformers Wiki - Transformers 2, Animated, Toys

    "The Dinobot Snarl is mysteriously absent from almost the entire movie (maybe he was scared of getting killed off), even though the Dinobots as a group are featured prominently. It is unclear why this is the case, but one possible explanation is that copies of the script which have come into fans' hands repeatedly list the Dinobots but never make mention of Snarl by name. In fact, at one point the script refers to "the four Dinobots". Despite this, Snarl does appear in three very brief shots, although he has no lines and no action. Another theory claims that the animation model for Snarl had gone missing, hence he is only seen in static form."

    He's in the scene before the autobots take off for space. Galvatron and co are firing on the autobots and you see snarl trying to dodge the blasts

    Yup, he's in there, as others have mentioned.

    Never did understand why someone made the decision not to include him in the Devvy battle, though.

    I reckon the writers thought that five Dinobots were one to many to fit into the scenes they had planned.

    Real answer:
    They f'd up and simply forgot to include him.

    Fandom answer:
    There isn't one. You just have to pick one of many theories invented to explain it and go with whichever one you like best... just like what's been going on with all of the huge holes in the live action movies.
