He is part of the mini-cassette Autobot team and takes on the form of a rhinoceros.

Ramhorn's bio painted him as extremely unruly and bad-tempered, prone to destroying anyone who violates his territory. His charge is formidable enough to knock a train off its tracks or upend an 18-wheeler with one blow.

As a member of the Autobot communications sub-group Ramhorn frequently worked with its other members - Blaster, Eject, Grandslam, Raindance, Rewind and Steeljaw.

Animated series

Ramhorn first appeared as one of Blaster's warriors in , where he defended Blaster's communications tower from the Decepticon cassettes.

He appeared in the episode, "Forever is A Long Time Coming". In this episode, Rewind, Blaster, Ramhorn, Blurr and Wreck-Gar are transported to Cybertron's past via a Quintesson time window. He aided the prehistoric Autobots in defeating the Guardian Robots, thus keeping the original timeline intact. (Strangely, Ramhorn had the power of speech in that episode, and only made normal rhino-like sounds for most of his other appearances)

In episode 78, "Madman's Paradise", Spike and Carly hosted a banquet for a visiting ambassador. Daniel got bored and wandered off. Grimlock followed him and they fell into a lost chamber where Quintessons banished their criminals to other dimensions. They slipped through to the sorcerous other-dimensional realm of Menonia, and were tricked into fighting on the Red Wizard's side, only to find out that he was the Quintesson criminal, who overthrew the Golden One. Ultra Magnus, Blaster, Eject, Rewind, Ramhorn, and Steeljaw followed, and using Blaster's amplification, they help the Golden One defeat the Red Wizard. With the help of Perceptor, the Autobots and Daniel returned to Cybertron.

In "The Quintesson Journal" he was a part of the Autobot team that recovered the Quintesson's recording device.

He also had a small part in "The Ultimate Weapon", teaming with Steeljaw to ram Galvatron's cannon mode.

He later appeared in "Call of the Primitives" as one of the Transformers "Primitives" (animal themed Transformers like the Dinobots and Predacons) summoned by Primacron to battle his creation Tornedron, but was deactivated by the energy creature. He was revived when Grimlock defeated the creature.

Transformers: Headmasters

Ramhorn did not appear much after this in the U.S. series. However, he was in the Japanese series, , When Blaster was killed during a one on one confrontation with Soundwave, the Autobot cassettes were left without a leader. They salvaged his body and were able to reconstruct the body. Blaster was reformatted into Twincast, whose bodies were identical, except for the fact that his later form was blue instead of red.

Marvel Comics

Although Ramhorn would not appear in the U.S. Transformers comic, he appeared in the U.K. "Space Pirates" arc. When the Quintessons attacked Autobot City and killed Blaster and the rest of its inhabitants, Rodimus Prime came to investigate. However, when he lost the Matrix and reverted to Hot Rod, he decided to use Blaster's cassettes, including Ramhorn, to fend off the Quintessons while he reactivated Metroplex.

Dreamwave Productions

Ramhorn was among the many Autobots who congregated in a secret base during the "Age of Wrath", when the recently-returned Megatron's Aerospace Extermination Squadron covered the planet Cybertron, capturing countless Autobot heroes and sending the remnants of the army underground.
