autobots had ratchet and wheeljack, decepticons had who?
Constructicons is what I've seen in the eps only.
I'm sure there are "drones", because the idea of a Decepti-medic seems weird. I may have to check the background of the old Marvel comics to see there's any there.
Or they fix themselves, Starscream, TC, and Skywarp were fixing each other in War Dawn I think.
yeah i guess the concons were the medics. but then again the dcons never really got hurt.
G1 had the Constructicons as the closest equivalent.
In Beast Wars the Predacons had repair chambers (the name for which temporarily eludes me) on the Darkside.
In Energon Megatron had the ability to completely rebuild Decepticons with the force of his will alone.
The Movies have Scalpel as the 'Cons medic.
That's all I can think of.
also in rotf prime cut off Screamers arm and he popped it back on
remember fire in the sky? Soundwave, Thundercracker... I believe fixed Skyfire. I'd assume that since the Decepticons are Military robots, they have a pretty good knowledge of how to fix one another.
Well technicaly there's that Kiss Players Ravage repaint, they say he's a medic. However, I think with that the idea for Decepticons to fight to the death and how they're so brutal to each other, medics are relatively hard to come by for the Cons.
IIRC, in the DW G1 MTMTE profiles, Hook is explicitly listed as a surgeon or surgical engineer, or something to that extent. Other than him, and possibly the rest of the Constructicons, the Decepticons don't really seem to have any.
Even the Autobots don't have a large number of medics, for any army of their size.
i hear unicron will fix you up so good, you'll feel like a new person
First one that I thought of was Hook.
Yup. Constructicons are all I can think of right now. I think its War Dawn, where you see them working on Megatron. Or creating him....
Magnificus ehobby black preceptor would in theory have the same abilities as autobot preceptor so he could do repairs..but since he was a war leader i doubt he would stoop to repairing grunt troopers...
the one and only decepticon medic (he transforms into a cassette head cleaner. Utterly useless) is Glit
In the RotF video game, Long Haul has a similar heal-over-time ability to Ratchet, so in that part of the continuity at least, he's effectively a field medic. Not sure that would be considered part of canon or not, though.
CR chamber I believe
The only Decepticon medic I'm aware of is Scalpel from ROTF.
I think the Decepticons have no need for a medic. They tend to take care of their own injuries.
Starscream played medic, he was a scientist. So did the constructicons.
the doctor in rotf
Speaking strictly about G1:
Simply put, the Decepticons didn't have any use for medics - remember TFTM86, where the injured Decepticons were pitched out into space. One of the 'Cons - I think it was one of the Constructicons - suggested what we call social Darwinism ("survival of the fittest"), and that's what they did.
And the Autobots had lots of medics and support staff, including Ratchet, Wheeljack, Hoist, Perceptor, First Aid, Hot Spot (one of his modes is a repair bay), Countdown (also has a repair bay), and Fixit. Brainstorm might be something of a medic too.
