Devil's Due G.I. Joe vs Transformers continuity
Ratbat was one of the many Transformers recovered from the crashed Ark by Cobra. He was repaired and retrofitted by Doctor Mindbender, who proudly displayed him, Soundwave, and his fellow Mini-Cassettes to Destro. Ratbat was released by Soundwave, along with Laserbeak, Frenzy, Rumble, and Ravage, during an attack on the SPS Research Facility. Ratbat was felled by the combined fire of Rock 'n Roll, Roadblock, and Bazooka. His body was taken into custody by G.I. Joe.
