    Thundercracker
    Claims the skies as his arena. He looks down in contempt on those who cannot leave the ground -- he considers them lesser beings. He will often attack the flightless beings below him for no other reason than to satisfy his scorn.
    His superiority in this realm is the only thing he is sure of. Thundercracker is not entirely committed to the Decepticon cause, and even has some seemingly contradictory sympathy for the humans they terrorize. Fear of retribution from Megatron and the influence of his peers is usually enough to bury these doubts. Regardless, he needs constant reassurance that he's where he needs to be. Sometimes, his heart's just not in the job.

    Ramjet
    What can really be said about someone whose only idea of strategy is to smash into things with his head? In Ramjet's defense he's specifically built to survive such midair collisions and his prey most definitely is not. The strategy can be frighteningly effective, since no one expects a fighter jet to ram them. Ramjet has a tendency to regard the sky as belonging only to him, and will frequently ram even neutral or friendly targets. Though he is built to take such hits frequent collisions and crashes can still take their toll on his internal mechanisms.

    This matchup should be a bit more evenly matched and offer up a little more chance at some discussion and debate.

    In order to make it easier from my end PLEASE remember when voting to use the following format...

    Winner = Character's Name

    Quoted for truth. Winner is Ramjet. Just because he's crazy and uses his head as a weapon. His head. TC's good, but no way can he keep up with that lunatic.

    In this type of matchup where things are a bit more evenly matched with similar types of transformers I'll give my vote to the one thats unpredictable and crazy as hell.

    Thundercracker's heart wouldn't be in it, while Ramjet would throw his whole heart and head into it.

    It would be a fun "Seeker vs. Seeker" matchup, though... the would-be defector versus the thuggishly loyal foot soldier. It's too bad that Thundercracker's ambivalent feelings have never been explored/expanded more in TF fiction; it would give him a more complex personality as one of the few "doubting Decepticons", and offer nice opportunities for this type of conflict.

    T-Cracker won't have his heart or head in the fight, Ramjet will have both.

    I'd prefer TC to win, but realistically (or as realistic as giant TFing robots can be!) he'd get his ass handed to him by RJ.

    Ramjet is crazy, but Thundercracker is the more skilled warrior.

    Winner = Thundercracker
