This new body was designed to be bat-like by Shockwave in order to add another flier to the Decepticon ranks. During a manhunt for Soundwave in Iacon, Silverbolt closed in on the Decepticon communications officer from the air. Soundwave ejected Ratbat to deter him, much to Silverbolt's shock.
Ratbat nimbly took out Silverbolt's port stabilizer, forcing him to crash into a nearby building. The Hunt for Soundwave. Millions of years later, Ratbat served as a scout for the Decepticons on Earth. After reporting to Megatron that he had found the Autobots ' Ark , Ratbat was ordered to keep monitoring.
Devastation 1 After the Surge and during the Decepticon invasion of the United States , the patrolling Ratbat came across the military unit of Spike Witwicky as they attempted to cross the Hudson River. He sunk their boat and only Witwicky survived. Uneasy Lies the Head. Following the defeat of the Deceptigod , the Decepticons were left weakened from being forced to merge, and with Megatron MIA, Ratbat took the chance to revive his old title of Senator and make himself spokesperson of the defeated Decepticons.
He negotiated an unconditional surrender with the Autobots in exchange for his own safety, unaware that Soundwave and Shockwave were already plotting for Megatron's return. Shockpoint The Decepticons were subsequently locked away in a temporary holding area inside the gun barrel of the crashed Kimia Facility.
When Optimus Prime was shown to the facility, Ratbat loudly claimed that his reputation had been unfairly tarnished and he should be released, but Optimus told him in no uncertain terms that, as far as he was concerned, Ratbat was just another Decepticon, regardless of his past as a senator.
Getting nowhere with the Autobots, Ratbat instead tried to get the Decepticons to fall in line behind him now that Megatron had vanished, but when they were released to deal with a riot caused by a large number of angry neutral Cybertronians , the Decepticons all ignored him. Starscream mockingly noted that Ratbat's attitude was the reason why no one had listened to him in four million years.
The Death of Optimus Prime. Some weeks later, Ratbat had managed to cement his position as figurehead and spokesperson for the confined Decepticons. He complained to Prowl about the unfair, restrictive conditions that the Decepticons were kept under. When Ratbat pressed further, Prowl bluntly stated that the Decepticons only deserved to be treated "like the animals you are".
After the Autobots had left, Ratbat furiously chewed Needlenose and Horri-Bull out for volunteering to serve on the outside as peacekeepers. Needlenose protested that they simply wanted something to do, to which Ratbat responded that he did have a plan and they only had to stay out of trouble until the next night. The Autonomy Lesson. The reality of it was that Soundwave and Shockwave had found a way to disable them, and Ratbat was waiting for the right time to take advantage of this fact.
Having sent Skywarp to confirm this by teleporting out and witnessing Horri-Bull's demise, Ratbat warned the others to stick to his plan. Starscream openly voiced his doubt in Ratbat's plans and leadership, to which Ratbat merely claimed that he was the one who was responsible for the Decepticon uprising in the first place, through his manipulations as a senator. Starscream left in disgust, prompting Ratbat to order Long Haul to tail him. Ratbat's plan went into effect the next night.
During a memorial service for the presumed-dead crew of the Lost Light , Skywarp was to assassinate Bumblebee from a high vantage point, pinning the crime on a NAIL. Ratbat and the other Decepticons would then move out and attack the Autobots in the confusion. Unfortunately, Starscream had tipped Prowl off to Ratbat's plan, and the Autobot prevented Skywarp from pulling the trigger. Believing Bumblebee to have been successfully killed, Ratbat ordered Mixmaster to rally the others.
Ratbat asked Soundwave and Shockwave if they were in agreement with his plans, to the former's silence and the latter's indifference.
Satisfied, Ratbat retreated to his quarters to prepare, where he was ambushed by Arcee. The vicious Autobot cut his legs off and skewered his wing, before stabbing him through the chest.
When someone came to check on Ratbat, they found him dead and pinned to the wall with an energy-sword. Prowl told the assembled Decepticons that Ratbat's death had been a suicide, much to their outrage and disbelief.
Starscream backed this obvious cover story, claiming that the former senator had confided in him that the pressures of leadership were too great for his "tiny body" to withstand. Last seen, his corpse was in Fixit's medical facility, being stood over by Scattershot. Stick Together. Ratbat was one of the absurd amount of minion Soundwave ejected out of his chest, all in a row, in preparation for a fight.
Lil Formers. Ratbat was present when Megatron explained out loud his plans to brainwash the entire population using music. Soundwave's Trap? Stop Operation Brainwash Humanity! During the Great War , Ratbat was a high-ranking Decepticon who posed a threat to Megatron 's leadership position. Not All Megatrons. By the 24th century, Ratbat was a member of the Builder Assembly , which admonished Eject when his subordinate Lio Convoy rebelled against the Builders.
When Eject revealed that he had the means to create a clone of Lio Convoy , Ratbat and the other members of the assembly were receptive to his plan. Broken Windshields. In order to shore up public morale, Ratbat insisted on restarting the Games after Lio Convoy's spectacle at the last Games.
The new matches at Tesarus Arena were intended to star captured Resistance POWs, forced to fight against each other for the Builders' amusement. The war was going against the Builders by the time Galva Convoy was prepared to launch his Vehicons. So, despite Eject's newfound reticence, Ratbat and the Builder Assembly pressed ahead with the new drone troopers. The modified nano-virus produced by Vehicons allowed them to assimilate other members of the proto-races to increase their numbers, although Galva Convoy assured the Assembly that Macromaster-scale Builders were simply too complex to succumb to the virus.
Eject still insisted on a line of code dubbed General Order 66 , hardwiring the Vehicons to prevent them from passing above the 66th parallel, keeping them out of Iacon and neighboring Builder city-states and concentrated on Resistance territory and secessionists like the Maximal Nation and IPS. Deploying the Vehicon virus at the south polar Protihex was successful as far as it went, but it only emboldened Lio Convoy and the Resistance to press ahead to Iacon and the Builder Assembly at a reckless pace.
Ratbat and the Assemblybots began to shriek in fear as the majority of the fighting pushed above the 66th parallel. Ratbat and the Assembly's position became even more precarious when Hot Rod and the Micromaster st refused to engage the Resistance on the streets of Iacon.
Hot Rod, unlike Ratbat, was concerned with civilian casualties and preserving the city, but this meant the Resistance could reach the High Pavilion that much sooner. Even in the complete absence of any remaining defense, Ratbat still had the gall to defy Lio Convoy to his face when the Resistance leader confronted the Assembly atop the ruins of the High Pavilion after the army of the Resistance finished laying siege to it.
Ratbat's arrogance appeared justified for a moment, as the Vehicons finally arrived en masse. There's a Body at the End of My Driveway Edition of copies with an insert.

I have 5 rats, two of them are 7 months old and the other three are 5 months old. Please enter your comment! Please enter your name here. Most store-bought rats will live 12 to 24 months. Some pet stores will receive lines from local fancy rat breeders, and your store-bought rat could live up to 36 months with great care, a stimulating environment and nutritious food.
Fancy rats are those that have traced genetic lines, and are bred in "ratteries" by knowledgeable and experienced rat owners. Fancy rats typically live to 2 or 3 years of age, and are less prone to upper respiratory diseases or malignant tumors. Research your prospective breeder before purchasing your rat as some breeders are not responsible; over-breeding, breeding from feeder rat origins or neglecting to breed for health and strength of stock can lower life expectancy.
