Ransack had secured co-leadership of Velocitron with Override due to his success in a race some time before the Ark arrived at the planet. He was less than impressed with Optimus Prime and his Autobots, though he did seek opportunities to turn their presence to his advantage. He soon learned of Megatron and the Decepticons through Makeshift, and made Optimus aware of this fact when he utilized Megatron's slogan "peace through tyranny." Eventually he and his supporters prepared to confront Override as the Autobots were ready to depart. He boldly insulted Optimus to his face, expressing his hopes that Megatron would soon arrive, and was promptly knocked flat. His forces then engaged Override in a battle that ended in a draw due to their near-even numbers.
Velocitron was then visited by the Star Seekers, and Ransack tried to goad Thundertron into eliminating Override for him. However, the pirates departed aboard the Tidal Wave upon realizing that the Autobots were no longer on the planet. Megatron soon arrived aboard the Nemesis, and Ransack grudgingly pledged himself to the Decepticon cause, but arrogantly refused to submit himself as Megatron's subordinate. Megatron soon departed as well, leaving Ransack to continue his campaign against Override.
