- Rapticon is a Dinobot from the Beast Machines portion of the Generation One/Beast Era continuity family.
Rapticon is big, strong, fast, and really smart. He's basically the overpowered self-insertion character in any fan fiction. He has unmatched precision and success, can immediately pick out the weak spot in an enemy formation, can smash anything with his tail and has a roar that can permanently damage Vehicons. Annoying, isn't it?
He's also a smug, superior smart-ass.
3H Universe: The Wreckers Comics
The Dinobots were sent to an unnamed planet by the Oracle, in order to awaken the "sleeping giant" for a mysterious purpose. However, the mission was a fool's errand, arranged by the Quintessons and designed to destroy the Dinobots; the planet was the world where one of their most dangerous creations ever remained a prisoner, the energy-draining Trans-Organic creature known as the Dweller. Rapticon fought valiantly against the creature, slicing it across its belly. However, the Dweller swiftly smashed Rapticon to pieces with one of its gigantic tentacles. Not so smug anymore, eh?

- Part of the Dinobots sub-line of Beast Machines, Rapticon is a redeco of the Beast Wars Predacon Transmetal 2 Dinobot, transforming into a monstrous, skeletal organic/mechanical velociraptor. His tail is made of sectioned rubbery plastic that lets it swipe easily back-and-forth when a dial on its base is turned. This tail-gimmick also becomes a claw-held weapon for Rapticon's robot mode.
