Profile: Ricochet was one of the top trainees
in the espionage division of the Autobot academy. His skill in
sabotage gained the attention of Espionage Director Bumblebee,
who took the young Autobot under his wing. Unfortunately, this
had the negative affect of bolstering Ricochet's ego to an extreme.
He thinks very highly of himself. However, his abilities often
justify his belief. Unfortunately, his attitude has led to conflict
with fellow Autobots from time to time. While he is an adept spy,
Ricochet prefers sabotage, which he feels is a much more effective
way of fighting enemies than outright battlefield confrontations.
"He'll grow and learn...if he survives long enough,"
Bumblebee says with confidence.
Abilities: In vehicle mode, Ricochet has a top
speed of mach 2.0. His primary weapon is his lance, mounted on
the top, able to fire bursts of plasma energy. His outer skin
is composed of a special alloy that is able to avoid most advanced
detection methods. Combined with his almost silent running engines,
he can go undetected in enemy territory with ease. In robot mode,
Ricochet is extremely agile. Has a massive array of visual and
listening equipment built into his head unit. In addition, his
lance doubles as a melee weapon.
Weakness: Ricochet's attitude sometimes leaves
him in situations where he has taken on more than he can handle.
While other Autobots will come to his rescue, they have been known
to do so grudgingly.
