    I never understood this, why do people think hes a dog. He looks nothing like a dog, makes cat like sounds in G1, moves like a cat in G1, is very clearly a cat in beast wars, and even more clearly a cat in the new movie with the way the metal on his body resembles the fur of a feline.

    even after all those clues, people still call him a dog, i dont get it.

    The only time i heard someone mistake him for a dog was in ALL HAIL MEGATRON. It could be Because he looks like the Greyhound Logo.

    I never understood why some people confused him for a dog, either.

    I used to think Ravage was a dog, but that was because he never had a tail in the G1 videos I rented as a kid (or most of the TF comics I read). It wasn't until I saw an actual G1 Ravage toy in a picture did I realize he's a cat.

    It's probably the same people who think Miles "Tails" Prower is a girl.

    Because he looks as much like a dog as he does a cat, really, thanks to his long snout looking a lot more canine than it does feline, and the rest of his body being pretty nondescript - and that's just referring to his animation model. His toy's just a flat tape with four legs. He's been shown sitting by his master and being petted, and he's appeared on a leash, which are much more dog-like things than they are cat-like. He was consistently called a "hound" in the Ladybird books. I know *I* always thought he was a dog when I was a little nipper.

    Like Chris McFeely said, G1 Ravage does have a few dog-like features in the animation model and the toy. He's not an exact replica of a jaguar by any means. More of a vaguely cat-like, four legged robotic thing. I think the vagueness of the animal shape explains the confusion over what he's supposed to be.

    Interestingly, the Microman cassette toys that became Ravage and Laserbeak seem to be based on two earlier Takara toys that weren't cassettes... Space Dober and Space Condor. But while the bird cassette was called Condor, like Space Condor, the other was called Jaguar, unlike Space Dober. It's possible that Microman Jaguar (Ravage), was also meant to be a doberman at some stage. If you look at the G1 Ravage toy, it looks somewhat like a doberman, with the long snout and ears... the only thing not at all doberman-like is the long tail. Perhaps the toy was changed late in development? Or maybe it was always meant to be a cat, but the designers really messed up the proportions. Who knows.
