Ratchet is an Autobot Medical Officer and became a key member of Optimus Prime's team, a brave and loyal field medic who though originally did not intend of becoming a soldier for believing that a more peaceful solution could be considered; rather calculative his intelligence and skill in surgery make him the best medic to have around, his function is aid and repair and he will unquestionably help his battle-worn comrades for them to fight another day.
Ratchet is seen as a calm and intelligent individual, whom thinks before he acts, he appears to rationalize and process things through rather than recklessly jumping into a dangerous situation, he shows a great deal of care for his fellow Autobot's and often advises them in several matters; he would always help to aid and repair his wounded comrades in battle, whilst displaying a great amount of bravery (as demonstrated when he fearlessly took on Sentinel Prime) as well as defiantly refusing to reveal Optimus Prime's location to Lockdown. Overall he has a very trusting and caring nature that most of the other Autobot's respect him for. Ratchet's death would have a heavy impact on the remaining Autobots, particularly Optimus whom viewed him as a close friend and was deeply saddened by his demise.But within a few years he will revived in a new body thanks to the k.s.i technology.
