Daniel often gets into trouble, which requires either his father or the Autobots to save him. He is very good friends with the Autobots, particularly Wheelie, Grimlock, and Hot Rod, but the one he's closest to is Arcee, who views him as a surrogate son.
Daniel is (sometimes) a Headmaster partner, and sometimes he is a Titan Master named Leinad, both in conjunction with Arcee.
In the year 2005, Daniel appeared to be in the care of Hot Rod (smart choice) at Autobot City while his father was preparing for an assault on the Decepticon-held planet Cybertron from Moonbase One. The separation from his dad had left Daniel feeling blue, but his spirits were lifted when he saw an incoming Autobot shuttle. Hot Rod gave him a lift to Lookout Mountain to get a better view, but Daniel found something he'd rather not see; a massive hole in the shuttle's side, revealing that it had been commandeered by the Decepticon army.
This chance discovery caused Hot Rod to attack the shuttle, forcing Megatron to evacuate his troops and giving the Autobots a chance to prepare the city's defenses. Daniel nearly perished when Megatron blasted the observation platform below him, but Hot Rod managed to keep him safe as they headed for the besieged city with Kup.
Following a brutal battle in which he was almost killed, Daniel tearfully witnessed the death of Optimus Prime, sobbing on the fallen commander's hand as the color left his corpse.
After the return of Optimus Prime, Daniel and his father, Spike are on Cybertron racing with Hot Rod and Blurry for doing Brainstorm's experiment about Autobots with human partners to be able to defeat the Decepticons easily. After he won the race, Arcee congratulated him by saying he was doing great.
- Daniel has a crush on Arcee as shown in the Rebirth episodes as he became her Headmaster partner and has feelings for her.
