    Out of all the Ratchets.......... Which one is your favourite.

    There are gonna be options for this poll..........

    I say Prime Ratchet is favourite. I'm glad as he's not as grumpy as his Animated version (God, I don't like Animated) and his personality is interesting in the show.

    Animated was better. He had a great back story (that we actually got to see in depth rather than quick exposition) that tied into very important parts of the plot and good character interaction/development over the series. Animated Ratchet was practically the main character of the series.

    Animated Ratchet is my favorite, followed by IDW Ratchet.

    Prime Ratchet is an okay character that plays well off the rest of the cast, but he has zero depth or backstory.

    G1 Ratchet was a minor character in the show, and while in the Marvel comics he played a pretty big role, I never liked him.

    Since this thread is about Ratchet in a generalized sense, this thread functions better in General Discussion, so here we are!

    My vote is for G1, btw :)

    Add me to the G1 crowd, especially since there's like five versions to choose from.

    Oof, tough pick.

    I love Animated Ratchet, because behind the outside grumpiness and anti-social nature was a huge reserve of depth and development that really made you feel for the guy. He's been through a lot, and it really shows throughout the show, particuarly his devotion to the Autobot cause and inner caring for his friends.

    Movie Ratchet sadly didn't have much screen-time to his name, but when he did show up, he was generally helping out whether by advice or blasting some Deceptipunks or some other cool thing he does. Easily the weakest Ratchet in terms of character/screen-time of my three choices, but he has the advantage in that I fucking adore his design and like the fact he has a different vehicle mode from other Ratchets.

    Prime Ratchet is a pretty cool guy. He fights zombies and punches Megatrons in the face. He's pretty damn hilarious with all the crap *coughBulkheadcough* he puts up with, but he does have his moments of depth beyond his snark; his lamenting his inability to help Raf due to his own ignorance and his speech upon the Omega Lock's destruction, for example.

    I suppose cut some slack and vote for Movie Ratchet. He's a pretty cool guy :)

    You know pretty much every Ratchet's vehicle mode has got something to do with emergency and rescue. Basically he's an ambulance after all.

    Transformers Prime Ratchet. He's funny, grumpy and occasionally bad ass. But I also like TFA Ratchet. He has a very interesting story but I hate fat Transformers and he's not as bad ass.

    Prime ratchet is the best autobot in prime and one of my top ten favourite autobots of all time. His use of his catchphrase "we needed that" in darkest hour sealed the deal for me.

    both animated, and prime ones. I like the old, KUPish ratchet. and i really like the leadership skills that he has in the Prime series. BUT i think i am going to have to go with animated being the better one. As he actually had more development in the series by the episode number we are in now, in prime. while prime basically just exists to provide exposition sometimes. but i blame that on the writers not giving him enough to do.

    Personally, Prime is my favorite. He's got a neat personality and he actually fixes stuff, unlike Movie Ratchet.

    I like IDW the best, the how Ratchet got his hands back issue of MTMTE the sealed it. Ever so slightly behind that version is g1 cartoon and Prime.
