Ravage and Rumble:
R A V A G E
Profile: Ravage operates best when he operates alone. He's a creature of the night and carries out most of his murderous mischief at that time. Often the other Decepticons have no idea where he is, but they know he's up to no good, so they don't mind. He is easily the craftiest of his comrades and is quick to devise deadly new strategies to be used against the Autobots. He tends to remain aloof from the others, but his deeds command their respect. He is an exceptionally efficient war machine
Abilities: Ravage can hide his presence from others virtually completely. He can shield any electromagnetic radiation inside him from being detected by any monitoring devices. His walk is soundless. And he can disappear from sight in subdued light or shadows. He has his own monitoring devices in his nose module that give him a superior sense of smell, hearing and full spectrum electromagnetic wave detection. He carries two low radiation one megaton proton bombs, which he can fire over 3 miles distant or set in place with a timer.
Weaknesses: He is very sensitive to light & can be blinded by too much of it.
Okay, lets get this out of the way first, the toy packaging consistently referred to the red cassette as Rumble. Although in the shows, the red one shown here didn't appear nearly as much and was consistently known as Frenzy... They have similar capabilities, even similar personalities. Personally I always think of Frenzy as the red one, but to avoid confusion we'll stick w/ the official Hasbro packaging...
Profile: Rumble is your basic street punk. He compensates for his small size by always acting tough. And he is tough. Cross him and he'll punch your optic sensors out. He has a quick temper and a mean disposition. The other Decepticons try to keep their distance. Yet, this unpleasant, swaggering little hoodlum is one of Megatron's favorites. Rumble follows orders blindly and hungrily; he always waits impatiently for Megatron's next assignment. A good time for Rumble is shaking a building into a heap of rubble. "I love the sight of crumbling bricks," he says.
Abilities: Rumble can roll the drum-like constructions in his body to transmit through his feet intense low frequency groundwaves that have the effect of stimulating earthquakes. His quakes have registered as high as 5.4 on the Richter Scale.
Weaknesses: Rumble's small size severely limits his strength; he can be easily beaten by most of the Autobots in any sort of physical struggle or artillery barrage. Given his power of causing the ground to shatter however, the trick is to get close enough to Rumble to fight him.
