Specifics: fictional appearances
Triggerhappy is a Decepticon Targetmaster in the Generation One continuity family.
We cool, G? Eh? Eh? Alriiiight.

Triggerhappy is a nutball. You get them in the Decepticons from time to time. He's generally found drooling and/or giggling wildly. He's been that way ever since an incident at Decepticon boot camp, in which he was firing while surfing on his hover board, but fell off and hit his head. He remained firing all the while and ended up disintegrating half a dozen other Decepticons. The camp commander was impressed and graduated Triggerhappy on the spot. Nobody is sure if it's an act or if he suffered processor damage in the fall. What is known is that he pays very little attention to where he's shooting but LOVES the sound his gun makes when fired. Good idea arming him there, Megs.

Triggerhappy is binary-bonded with Blowpipe, the conniving, envious brother-in-law of Nebulan leader Mo Zarak

French name (Canada): D├ęclic
Italian name: Efestus

Fiction

American cartoon continuity

Voice actor: Charles Adler
How is he supposed to drool when he doesn't have a mouth?

Triggerhappy was one of several Decepticon jets serving under Scourge and Cyclonus when they attacked Autobot City as part of a division while the Decepticon Clones stole the Key to the Plasma Energy Chamber. After Scourge successfully activated the chamber on Cybertron (and inadvertently sent a shuttle full of Autobots and the key halfway across the galaxy), Triggerhappy, Misfire and Slugslinger were among the Decepticon unit sent to retrieve the key. Following the Autobots to Nebulos, Triggerhappy attacked the Autobums, welcoming them to the scrapyard that they would become should he succeed in destroying them. The Rebirth, Part 1

Though the Decepticons managed to capture several Autobots, they were soon overwhelmed by new Headmaster technology the Autobots developed with the Nebulan rebels. After making a deal with the Hive, the Decepticons underwent binary-bonding as well, and Triggerhappy was given a new partner who blows hard and fast. Armed with this new skill, Triggerhappy and his Targetmaster companions successfully helped reacquire the Chamber's key. While waiting for Zarak to complete modifications to his city, Triggerhappy declared a possible gasket-blowing event was imminent should he be made to wait any longer. The Rebirth, Part 2

Triggerhappy and the other Targetmasters returned to Cybertron just in the nick of time to save Galvatron from the remainder of the Autobot forces. Galvatron was less than impressed by their new Hive partners, however, and addressed Triggerhappy directly when he berated them for letting organics inhabit their bodies, despite the fact Triggerhappy wasn't a Headmaster.

Japanese cartoon continuity

The Headmasters

Voice actor: Michihiro Ikemizu

Triggerhappy and his partners, Misfire and Slugslinger, were frequent opponents of the Autobot trio under Pointblank's command. When all of them were engaged in combat over several space-faring denizens of planet Master, a massive explosion caught everyone off-guard. Triggerhappy and his partners and foes alike were transformed into Targetmasters, somehow fused together in pairs with each of the smaller Master Transformers by the explosion.

Marvel Comics continuity

Generation One

For some reason, when Scorponok was choosing troops who might enjoy becoming binary-bonded Targetmasters with more powerful weapons, he thought of Triggerhappy.

During the war on Earth, Triggerhappy got sick of Scorponok's command, especially after he let that maniac Starscream back into the Decepticons. Triggerhappy couldn't stand working with Starscream, so he and Mindwipe left Scorponok's Decepticons and joined Starscream's auxiliary army.

Wait. What?

IDW Comics continuity

Triggerhappy was part of the crew of the Thanatos, commanded by Razorclaw and the Predacons. He begrudgingly gave aid to Optimus Prime and the Wreckers while battling Thunderwing in order to preserve their home planet of Cybertron and show the Autobots how war was really done. Stormbringer issue 4

Toys

Generation One

  • Triggerhappy with Blowpipe (Targetmaster, 1987)
    • Japanese ID number: D-88
    • Accessories: Blowpipe Targetmaster gun
Couldn't decide whether to come as Thundercracker or Skyquake.
Triggerhappy transforms into a blue Cybertronic fighter craft with large, dual off-white cannons on either side his body, looking a fair bit like an X-Wing fighter from Star Wars. His Targetmaster partner, Blowpipe, can be stored in a socket on the rear of the fighter, just in front of where his head is stored. Somewhat unusually, the entire cockpit nose is mounted on a bar that swings upward so the nose meets with the rear fuselage to form his upper torso. His large fighter cannons swing up to the sides of his arms in robot mode, but the hinges aren't strong enough to deal with their weight, so they have a tendency to flop down. Blowpipe can be held in Triggerhappy's hands.
