The character Rattletrap is an obvious reference to Rattrap from Beast Wars: Transformers
(1996). He has the same accent, same general color-scheme, buck teeth, the exposed brain-like cranium, even rat's ears. His name clearly couldn't have been Rattrap, though, as he only got that name after he had taken up a rat as an alternate mode, something that hasn't happened in this series. Yet it does reference Rattrap's Japanase name: Rattle.
Interestingly, art designer Derrick Wyatt
originally drew the character as a birthday present for a well-known Transformers fan. See more
Ratchet's flashbacks, for some reason, aren't clouded or blurred as his other recollections in earlier episodes were. See more
