(Voiced by Corey Burton)

Short-tempered, grizzled and seemingly older than the ALLSPARK itself, RATCHET is the teamís medic and OPTIMUS PRIMEís occasional drill sergeant/second-in-command. Heís 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 botís seen it all. RATCHET largely keeps his past to himself, dishing out tantalizing tidbits when he feels the ďkidsĒ 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 teamís medic, reshaping metal and circuitry, patching up any of the AUTOBOTS in the field. His talents also make him the teamís gadget-head. He can configure any tech they need and even perform robot/vehicle upgrades for all the AUTOBOTS.

Vehicle Mode Appearance: Tactical Medical Response Vehicle.

Character description from package "tech spec":  As gruff as Autobot Ratchet can be, he is, at heart, the kindest of the Autobots.  His rough demeanor is rooted in his concern for those around him, for he worries constantly about the well being of others.  Autobot Ratchet fears no Decepticon and he would not hesitate to face destruction in order to help another being.  The only thing he's afraid of is that one day, one of his friends will be injured so badly that his mechanical skills won't be enough.

Galactic Powers and Abilities:
> Can modify Earth technology to Autobot systems

> Assisted in early open-core surgeries during training.

> Laser scalpel is a family heirloom
