"You break it, I'll remake it."
Ratchet was the best tool-and-die man on Cybertron. In his workbay he could make anything from a pin to a missile. Repaired injured Autobots, given the right parts. Liked to party, give backtalk, but did any job as well as anyone. Had laser scalpels, arc-welders, electron microscopes, circuit sensors, fluid dispensers at his disposal. Sometimes his having a good time interfered with his effectiveness.
Ratchet was a member of the crew of the ill-fated Ark mission that brought the Transformers to Earth. In 2005, while on a shuttle run to Earth, he was killed by Megatron, Starscream, and the Constructicons in the course of their ambush of the shuttle, directly leading to the Battle of Autobot City.
- Ratchet is dead, but Peacekeeper is known to cosplay as him.
- Ratchet has a sister, apparently. We're so, so sorry
No sorry he is dead.
