Tech Specs

The DECEPTICONS are known for fielding their craziest warriors in the skies, but RAMJET really outclasses them all. He's a born flier who loves nothing more than crashing. Sure, he's got a whole rack of concussion missiles and argon lasers strong enough to vaporize a DINOBOT, but he'd rather skip all that nonsense and just smash head first into his targets - and anything else that jets in his way. He's just as likely to smash his allies out of the way as he is to destroy any AUTOBOTS in his path, but watching him plow through a battlefield is so fun that MEGATRON keeps him around anyway.

Marvel's Transformers Universe Profile

Profile: Ramjet is the most consistently underestimated of the Decepticons. Despite being among the most dangerous of the evil robots, many Autobots dismiss him as a maverick wingnut. Mostly because his tactics always boil down to accelerating straight into whatever gets in front of him, whether it's his enemies, his friends, or the ground.

Anyone who's ever hit by him and lived, of course, never underestimates him again. The damage that can be done by almost thirty tons of Cybertronian composites moving at Mach 3 is significant, to say the least, and while Ramjet is built to withstand such impacts, no one else is. Sure, all that crashing may have rattled his neural network a bit, maybe loosened a screw here and there, but it hasn't diminished his skill as a pilot. When it comes down to it, if Ramjet wants to smash into you, he will. Dodging just means it happens later rather than sooner, and you will have to listen to him shriek "YAAAA-HOOOOOO!¡É more than once. It is likely that Ramjet was a little more stable before Starscream killed him. As brilliant as Shockwave is, it's nearly impossible to make a full personality backup of a being as complex as a Transformer without the occasional error sneaking in. The store of engrams stashed on the Ark was bound to contain one or two defects. So now the mech who used to be a hard-headed bodyguard is a barely balanced killiing machine. Ramjet's fine with it, though. He barely misses whatever it is the other Decepticons think he's lost. He doesn't remember Starscream killing him, but he doesn't hold a grudge anyway. Goodness knows he's knocked Screamer out of the air more than once. As long as there's a consistent supply of Autobots and human fighters to crash into, Ramjet is a happy camper. Of course, once the Autobots are gone, Ramjet is likely to get bored. Who knows what'll happen next?
Abilities: As with many of the other Decepticons rebuilt by Megatron, Ramjet's missile racks and projectile weapons have been modified to fire pilfered human-built munitions. His primary ranged weapon is a pair of argon lasers. Though these lack the explosive power of more conventional plasma and particle beam weapons, their rate of fire is significantly higher. A few well-placed shots can destroy a hardened target in moments. Ramjet prefers to dispense with all the nonsense, however, and engage in the devastating physical assault from which he draws his name.
Weaknesses: Not too bright, and possibly unstable. As tough as he is, he does take damage whenever he collides with something. Several high-speed rams can take him out of a fight permanently.
