Character Profile
Short-tempered, grizzled and seemingly older than the ALLSPARK itself, RATCHET is the team's medic and OPTIMUS PRIME's occasional drill sergeant / second-in-command. He's an expert healer, but his bedside manner leaves a lot to be desired. Spend two minutes with RATCHET and you instantly get the sense that this bot's seen it all. RATCHET largely keeps his past to himself, dishing out tantalizing tidbits when he feels the 'kids' can handle, or NEED to handle, some of the truth.

Robot Mode Power: RATCHET has magnetic powers. He can attract and repel any metallic matter or create magnetic force fields. He also uses these powers as the team?s medic, reshaping metal and circuitry, patching up any of the AUTOBOTS in the field. His talents also make him the team's gadget-head. He can configure any tech they need and even perform robot/vehicle upgrades for all the AUTOBOTS.
Toy Profile
AUTOBOT RATCHET was, at one time, one of the most promising medical minds on Cybertron. After his experiences with LOCKDOWN, though, all he wanted to do was disappear. An assignment to a deep space repair crew was just what he was looking for. He never wanted to be in the middle of a new war against MEGATRON, but if that's where fate puts him, he'll do his best to keep his comrades safe and sound.

Galactic Powers and Abilities:
- Huge array of surgical and mechanical tools
- Once considered most talented medic on Cybertron
- Trained at Protihex Medical Mechanics University
