Ratbat, one of Soundwave's pets, changes to a keytar. Of course he is awesome, too. His haunting tones are what Soundwave uses to hypnotize and reprogram his enemies.
Soundwave used Ratbat in keytar form while trying to reprogram the Autobots into Decepticons.
When Soundwave had finished, he used Ratbat to control them in battle against the Substitute Autobots, and later sent him to attack in bat form when his control was broken. Ratbat appears to have been destroyed when Optimus Prime sliced through Soundwave (who was holding keytar-Ratbat in front of himself at the time) with Laserbeak in his guitar form. Laserbeak escaped with Soundwave's most basic component, but did not appear to be carrying any part of Ratbat.
- Electrostatic Soundwave (Deluxe, 2009)
- Accessories: "Ratbat" keytar
- Ratbat is a black keytar that turns into a bat as an accessory with Electrostatic Soundwave. Awesome. Or does Soundwave come with him?
