Technically it was the both of them that destroyed the control pillar. But which individual act did the job, Ratchet’s blaster or Bumblebee’s tackle? RATCHET + It gives a moment of glory to an Autobot that has been terribly overlooked within the films. You’d think that with all the fights and Bayhem going on, there’d be someone handling defense and rescue in an awesome manner, a job that’d fit Ratchet perfectly. Hopefully, in TF4 Ratchet can get his own action, just as DOTM did for Ironhide (but without Ratchet dying, he’s one of my favourites). + It was no major loss, Cybertron was said to be a barren wasteland so they were getting rid of a dead world in favour of a living one. - It’s spawned a whole lot of really mean and vicious jokes about how Ratchet is the Dr Death of the films, how he destroyed his home world, Primus, etc. I can’t stand those sort of jokes, I don’t know how anyone else can... - The destruction of Cybertron should never have really happened anyway, so it reflects badly on Ratchet. “Hey here I am finally at the end, I’m going to shoot this pillar connecting my dead world so that at least I can say I did one significant deed... oh slag here comes Bumblebee I better move fast!” pewpew “There, I made it before Bee did! Now in accordance with the script I must tell him how he fought bravely...” BUMBLEBEE + ... there are no positives to this. - Bee’s already the Bayverse’s Rodimus Prime, both adored and despised by fans for being exceedingly in the forefront of the fight. Anyway, what are your opinions? Would you give the glory to Ratchet or Bumblebee?
