Tyler Gremlin is a character in Cars 2.

Cars 2

"While other boys in school had cool racing stripes, Tyler Gremlin was stuck with hockey-stick stripes, and they were cheap decals to boot. Picked on in school for his goofy graphics and lack of horse power, it came as no shock that his personality got a bit menacing as time went on. The mischievous Tyler would drive without his headlights on after the dark, or chain a police officer's chassis to a lamppost. He became so salty that if any car so much as tooted their horn they would get T-boned. Most cars learned to yield to him. If a car tried to stand up to him, they'd have to hit-and-run because he always came back swinging ... just like a hockey stick."[1]

It is unknown where Tyler is in the movie, because there are 3 red Gremlins in the film.
