Explanation of the conversion: Ramulas's Weapons Multipower slots only work in the appropriate form. His ram attack
only works in beast mode, while his slagmaker cannon, ion pulse and claws only work in robot mode.
History: Ramulus was one of the protoforms from the Maximal ship called the Axalon commanded by Optimus Primal, which chased the Predacon criminal Megatron II
in the ship Darkside through transwarp space after the theft of the Golden Disk. Traveling back in time
to prehistoric Earth, the Axalon was damaged and ejected the stasis pods into orbit. Both
ships crashed on Earth, where high energon levels threatened to destroy the crew unless they
adopted organic alternate modes (Beast Wars Part 1).
When a transwarp explosion and quantum wave knocked the stasis pods out of orbit, Ramulus' pod fell to Earth in the high
The stasis pod was activated by the renegade Predacon commander Magmatron in a bid to create a Predacon army by traveling
back in time. The pod scanned the DNA of a ram, and due to the quantum wave Ramulus emerged as a transmetal ram.
Thanks to the under cover Maximal agent Razorbeast the Predacon shell program failed to convert Ramulus into a Predacon
(Beast Wars: The Gathering #1).
B'Boom, Bonecrusher II, Optimus Minor, Ramulus, Snarl II
and Wolfang, joined up with Razorbeast and the attempted to salvage the transwarp amplifier
from Ravage's transwarp cruiser in order to contact Cybertron. After combating the Predacons
Magmatron, Spittor and Drillbit they did recover the amplifier, but B'Boom, Ramulus and the
amplifier were damaged in the fight (Beast Wars: The Gathering #2)
After the Beast Wars ended and Optimus Primal's crew left Earth in the Autobot Shuttle Omega Delta, Airazor, Primal Prime and Tigatron set out to discover if any more
Maximals from stasis pods survived. They discovered and recruited Ramulas, who was angry that Optimus Primal's had left
Earth. Ambushed by the Predacons Tarantulas, Ravage, Razorclaw II, Spittor and
Iguanus, Primal Prime had the Matrix ripped out of his system (Wreckers #2).
Airazor, Tigatron, Ramulus, Sonar, Spittor, Packrat and Fractyl allied
Primal Prime in leaving Earth. Traveling to the future they arrived on Cybertron when it was controlled by Megatron II and
his vehicon hords. On Cybertron they met Ape-Linq and Rodimus and reformed the Wreckers. Seeking wisdom from the Oracle,
the Wreckers were sent on a mission off planet. They were joined by the Deployers Mol, Rav and Dillo as well as Arcee and Devcon while making it off planet in an Autobot Shuttle (Wreckers #1).
Trivia: The toy of Ramulus is similar to that of Longhorn II. There is a Chinese made knockoff of Ramulus.
Powers: Ramulus is highly energy efficient and is smart, tough, brave and highly skilled. Ramulus wields a double
slagmaker cannon in robot mode and his fractured Spark crystal generates disruptive ion pulses. He converts into a
transmetal ram with a devastating ram attack. His is a skilled climber. He recovers from damage quicker in beast mode and is better protected
from high energon levels as well.
When Ramulus arrived on Cybertron he was immunized by Ape-Linq against the transformation locking
virus created by Megatron II.
Weaknesses: Due to a chronic stress fracture in Ramulus' laser core his Spark frequently generates disruptive ion
pulses that can temporarely incapacitate him.
He can sometimes be impulsive. In beast mode he lacks ranged weapons.
High energon fields can adversely effect Ramulus if he stays in robot form for too long. His animal
form is protected from high energon levels.
