The Technohol 13 Alphabetical Character Roster: R
REV: tactical officer for the Spychangers team, REV (Race Exertion Vehicle) is a powerful warrior in his own right. Armed with a laser shotgun and a powerful leaping ability, he does quite a lot of damage to the Predacon cause - and does it in style! Availability:
the Radar Rat: whenever the Joes need a quick, portable air defense station set up in a jiffy, they often rely upon the Radar Rat. This vehicle is essentially a powerful radar unit mounted on a 250 HP engine, and is armed with enough missiles to knock out whatever it sees! the Radar Rat comes in Classic and Saga styles!
the Raging Typhoon: this marvel of modern engineering is a hovercraft which is armed to the teeth! Of course, when necessary the Joes can rebuild it as not one, not two, but four separate vehicles, allowing them to battle Cobra anywhere on earth! Availability:
the Raider: designed as a quick yet heavy combat vehicle, the Raider has several surprises installed within. It has an elevating missile bay, as well as the ability to split into two separate components when necessary: a high speed scout mini-tank, and a heavily armed battle station! the Raider comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Rail Racer: a merger of the three Team Bullet Train members (Midnight Express, Railspike and Rapid Run), Rail Racer combines their power and best personality traits into a singular whole, one which Megatron and company have a hard time dealing with! Availability:
Railspike: the leader of Team Bullet Train, Railspike is also its oldest member. His wisdom rivals that of Optimus Prime himself, though Railspike's age is telling in his demeanor, for he can occasionally come across as... cantakerous in certain situations. Availability:
the Rainbow Cube: this item consists of seven Rainbow Gems of an identical cut, each of which is in one color of the rainbow. They offer their wielder great power individually, but when combined together, they can literally change the universe! Availability:
Rampage: Walter A. McDaniel was a close friend of Beach-Head's in both Basic training and in his Ranger detachment. He is also a veritable demon behind the wheel, which is why Beach-Head recommended him as an operator of the Gi Joe Split Fire! Availability:
Rampart: born with exceptional reflexes, Dwayne spent his youth in video game arcades. Games don't pay the bills though, so after college he joined the Navy, and put his considerable talents to use as an Air Defense Artillery missile specialist! Availability:
the Rapid Fire Motorcycle (RAM): the RAM is a high speed ground attack vehicle. This bike and its deadly gun car can reach speeds in excess of 100 MPH, allowing Joes using it to quickly race into - and out of - combat situations in the blink of an eye! Availability:
the R.H.I.N.O.: another in a long line of two-in-one Gi Joe devices, the R.H.I.N.O. (or Rapid Heli-Integrated Neutralizing Offensive Vehicle) is a tough ground transport with a small helicopter built in, allowing it to provide its own air support or reconnaissance when necessary! The R.H.I.N.O. comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Rapid Run: the middle ground between Midnight Express and Railspike, Rapid Run is a mature Autobot warrior; he's grown up, but not aged. On the other hand, he's absorbed a lot of human culture and slang, making him glib and overconfident, oddly enough. Availability:
the Rapid Runner: unique amongst the Gi Joe B.T.R. vehicles, the Rapid Runner doesn't actually have two different configurations. Instead, it has two distinct operating modes, depending on whether one is using it to fly or to 'just' hover! Availability:
Rapid-Fire: highly motivated and bubbling over with capability, Robbie mastered everything the Army threw at him, from West Point to his graduation of the first fast attack maneuvers class. There's no stopping him from Being All He Can Be! Availability:
Raptor: an eccentric accountant with a penchant for falconry, Raptor found himself on Destro's bad side when caught poaching on his grounds. Pulled into Cobra's orbit, Raptor began to use his various skills in their service to pay off his debts to them! Availability:
Ratchet: though he'd rather waste all his time having fun and partying hard, Ratchet knows he has a very important job to do. After all, he's been patching his fellow Autobots back together over the course of their war with the Decepticons. Availability:
the Rattler: Cobra's single most infamous fighter, the Rattler itself is based loosely upon the designs of the A-10 Thunderbolt. Of course, Destro put in a few gotchas when he made the Rattler, such as VTOL capability, to make it even more interesting! Availability:
Ravage: virtually undetectable when he wishes to be, Ravage is an excellent stalker of the night. Constantly dreaming up new schemes to defeat the Autobots, Ravage is well respected by his peers - even if they usually don't even know where he is! Availability:
the Razor-blade: a smaller helicopter, the Gi Joe team's Razor-blade is just a little bit larger than its Locust, and about the same size as a Sky Hawk. However, its man purpose is not assault but rescue, for it's equipped to save folks in remote locations should they need it! The Razor-blade comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Razorvine: insidious weeds with a fiendish origin, razorvine spread far from the Abyss via foolish travelers and explorers. Now it grows to threaten many planes and Sigil itself, its horrific bladed edges being used for many sinister purposes. Availability:
Reaper: adopted by paranormal-obsessed eccentrics, Jaycen Nguyen grew up lonely. When he suddenly developed the powers of his birthright one fateful day, Jaycen (with the help of an enigmatic tutor) began to defend the innocent as Reaper! Availability:
Rebound: after being exposed to anomalous chemicals on the job, this gifted NSA operative found his features, his very body, twisted beyond recognition. Leaving his old life behind, he now uses his special abilities to fight evil as Rebound! Availability:
Recoil: a former marathon runner and professional body builder, Joseph Felton was a shoe-in to be a L.R.R.P. upon enlisting, as the man was strong and had incredible endurance. Of course, he has to keep his skills honed by practicing on his fellow Joes, which drives them crazy! Recoil comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Recondo: growing up to hate Wisconsin's cold winters, young Daniel wanted to explore the deepest African jungles as a child - and grew up to do just that. Both on and off the Joe team, Daniel has become an expert in jungle combat - and many other disciplines! Availability:
Red Dog: a former pro football player, David Taputapu got sacked for unnecessary roughness. After a stint as a Hollywood stunt man, he was recruited by GI Joe, as the powers that be thought he'd be an excellent addition to Sgt. Slaughter's Renegades! Availability:
Red Raven: lone survivor of a plane crash on the mysterious, floating Sky Island, he who would become the Red Raven was raised by the locals. Cherishing freedom and justice, he eventually left the Island to share these ideals with the world! Availability:
Red Raven 2: when the original Red Raven wished to join his Sky Island brethren in cryogenic slumber, he didn't want to leave his adopted home defenseless. As such, he simply built an android double to guard it in his stead! Availability:
Red Raven 3: sole child of the original Red Raven, Dania grew up in seclusion. Though she never knew the residents of Sky Island, she felt the need to protect their legacy - even after the floating city was raised from the sea floor! Availability:
Red Spot: fascinated with lasers ever since he was nine years old, Michael P. Ritchie left Cincinnati to join the military, and turn his love of directed energy devices into a marketable skill. He has since done so, and was recruited onto the Gi Joe team as one of its laser troopers! Red Spot comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Red Star: after the death of Colonel Brekhov, Captain Anatoly Fyodorovich Krimov (who has an eerie similarity to the late Colonel) was tapped to replace the man as leader of the Oktober Guard. And he's gung-ho enough to live up to his predecessor! Availability:
Red Zone: ultimately booted out of the F.B.I. because he was too rough on criminals and their precious property, Luke was recruited onto the Gi Joe team who saw that 'liability' as an asset. He now helps them out as a member of their reserve unit, the legendary Steel Brigade! Red Zone comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Reflector: consummate voyeurs, the trio of Decepticons that comprise Reflector enjoy watching everything in their environment. If they happen to spy some particularly valuable information in the process, they're happy to exploit it to the fullest. Availability:
the Reincarnator: the Reincarnator is a sort of immortal being, in that every time his material form dies, his life force carries him on to a freshly conceived human. Nine months later, the Reincarnator is reborn, ready to renew the fight against evil! Availability:
Evan Reinger: pilot, mercenary, and all around bad guy, Evan Reinger would gleefully kill a busload of kids if the money was right. Lacking morals of any stripe, he'll do whatever is asked of him as long as there's enough green in it for him. Availability:
Relampago: after the White Event granted her super speed, this young woman became something of a Chilean folk hero. Recruited into the Medusa Web, she began to use her considerable abilities to further Thame's goals to the best of her ability. Availability:
the Remote Piloted Vehicle: giving the Gi Joe team a powerful edge over the enemy, the Remote Piloted Vehicle allows them to surveil an area aerially without actually putting any operatives at risk. Though unarmed, the R.P.V. can 'spot' for the Joes from a remote command and control station! The R.P.V. comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Theodore 'Teddy' Remsen: paralyzed from the waist down after a cowardly bomb attack, Teddy Remsen nonetheless developed dream powers like her brother's - if to a lesser extent - which she uses to help his work at the Ballad clinic. Availability:
Repeater: a long-serving Army Ranger, Jeffrey Therien enjoyed being a soldier, and was very good at it, but couldn't really hack the whole 'Army politics' thing. As such, he was directed to the Gi Joe team, where he can fight to defend freedom without ruffling oversensitive feathers. Repeater comes in Classic and Saga styles!
the Retaliator: a highly advanced and somewhat customized vehicle, the Retaliator is a helicopter primarily designed with the flying style of Gi Joe pilot Updraft in mind. Of course, since he was doing a lot of said design work, this is to be expected - though any Joe pilot can make good use of it. the Retaliator comes in Classic and Saga styles!
General Rey: a reprogrammed clone of Serpentor himself, General Phillip A. Rey was given to the Jugglers as a secret weapon - to be used in a double cross against them at a later date. Rey decided to be his own man however, and has defeated his mental programming! Availability:
Rip Cord: initially enlisting in order to be paid to jump out of airplanes, Wallace ultimately found that he loved the military lifestyle. An expert HALO jumper, Rip Cord was a perfect addition to GI Joe, who always has need of soldiers with his skill! Availability:
Rip It: a surly, destructive gear-head, Fredd would almost be more at home in the Dreadnoks than in the Cobra H.I.S.S. Driver corps. A one-man engine of destrction, he likes nothing more than tearing apart the things that others have created, such as cars, homes, or even national identity! Rip It comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Ripper: evincing antisocial behavior since he was a toddler, Ripper grew up into a life of crime. This culminated with his joining the Dreadnoks, the only group that would have him, and occasionally performing freelance work for Cobra! Availability:
the Rising Tide: this smaller vehicle is a perfect fit for Barrel Roll. It can function either as an attack boat or an incredibly small jet glider, depending on its current configuration - and where Barrel Roll needs to be fighting his Cobra foes! Availability:
Ritter: his time in the Air Force having left him well-versed in aerial combat, Ritter decided to use that experience for personal gain after leaving the service. A highly paid mercenary pilot, Ritter could readily pick and choose his clients. Availability:
Ro-Tor: heavily armed in both melee and ranged combat, Ro-Tor serves as the Combatron's aerial surveillance expert. While he doesn't have the visual range Movor does, he's much more sneaky, and can soundlessly approach any foe - much to their chagrin. Availability:
the Road Rebel: a small device, the Road Rebel is a tracked, all-terrain ride which is basically a vehicle with which to carry an oversized missile launcher into whatever position is required. It's also armed with a flamethrower, for anti-personnel action! Availability:
the Road Toad: like the coastal defender, the road toad is towed into battle by another vehicle. The road toad is intended to help the Joes recover other disabled vehicles however, only being armed because Cobra likes nothing more than to gun down support personnel...! the Road Toad comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Roadbuster: though he's not inherently violent, Roadbuster only feels alive when he's fighting. Sullen while doing anything else, Roadbuster becomes a charismatic leader as soon as he finds himself in conflict, and readily inspires others to fight! Availability:
Roadblock: aspiring to be one of the world's greatest chefs since he was a child, Marvin put himself through the Escoffier School in France. Subsequently enlisting in the Army to learn from their chefs as well, Marvin became quite the machine gunner, too! Availability:
Teresa 'Terry' Roberts: the Troubleshooters' computer hardware expert, Terry built a truly revolutionary computer interface with Dr. Swensen's technology. This partial exo-skeleton, the 'Think-Tank', is her world's very first cyber-deck. Availability:
Robo-Joe: genius inventor Greg Scott was working on advanced, space-worth combat armor suits when his laboratory was raided by Destro. Left for dead by that villain, Greg was plugged into one of his prototype armors and cybernetically altered by the Gi Joe team... and Robo-Joe was born! Robo-Joe comes in Classic and Saga styles!
the Robothorrior: sole survivor of an attack by a Frankologist cyborg, Wallace Abbot was left crippled and broken. Luckily he had money to spare however, and could afford to have his body rebuilt by unhinged Electronicists into... the Robothorrior! Availability:
Rock 'n Roll: the Joes' original heavy machine gunner, Craig is from beautiful Malibu, California. He eventually grew up and joined the Army, hoping to make the world a better place, and found that membership in the GI Joe team lets him do just that. Availability:
the Rock Crusher: this diminutive B.T.R. vehicle can be configured to resemble two other Joe vehicles currently in operation. It can be assembled in either an assault quad or land luge mode, and may readily be switched between the two fast due to its size! Availability:
Rodstvow (Kinship): when the first manifestation of his powers killed his family, he who would become Rodstvow went insane. As his powers grew in scope, he became convinced only he was worthy of life, and intended to kill everything on earth. Availability:
Rogues (Modron): a nigh-perfect example of law, Mechanus is still subject to chaos. Usually introduced from without, this often results in a modron who manifests individual will, and eventually feels compelled to express it - at all costs! Availability:
Rollbar (Gi Joe): an unrepentant gear head and street 'tuner', Robert enlisted in order to play with the truly heavy gear the Army's got on hand... not to mention because he wanted to do something more important with his life. Thanks to his obsessive level of skill, Robert's managed both! Rollbar comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Rollbar (RiD): the Combatron ground staff officer, Rollbar is also a martial arts expert. He gets his kicks by ambushing Autobots in extreme environments, and prefers to keep his melee skills up with direct field experience rather than personal drills. Availability:
the R.O.C.C.: a heavily fortified tractor trailer, the R.O.C.C. (or Rolling Operations Command Center) is the latest in a long line of Gi Joe field bases. The difference between the R.O.C.C. and the others is of course the simple fact that the R.O.C.C. is inherently mobile! The R.O.C.C. comes in Classic and Saga styles!
the Rolling Thunder: a simply massive ground vehicle, the Rolling Thunder is the king of armored combat. Built with a staggering array of cannons, lasers and even cluster bombs (!), the Rolling Thunder is the perfect ride for intransigent Gi Joe driver Armadillo! The Rolling Thunder comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Ronin: abducted as a youth by his obsessive grandfather, Mora Kenji spent his youth with a bizarre luddite cult. Having been recently thrust into the modern world, Mora Kenji is completely clueless about the new reality he has found himself in. Availability:
Rook: an expert behavioral analyst and master of no less than fourteen distinct languages, Andy was inducted into the Gi Joe team since those guys are always fighting the world's worst terrorists. His skills unfailingly help them to dig up dirt on upcoming terrorist activity before it's too late! Rook comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Rossi, Mal: one of Mark Hazzard's oldest and bestest pals, Mal is a New Zealander who, after leaving his nation's army, couldn't deal with 'regular' life. He descended into alcoholism and lecherism, but was saved by Mark - who gave him direction! Availability:
Edmund Roth: the founder and leader of the CIA's Project: Spitfire, Edmund Roth is a questionable individual indeed. His goal is to keep Doctor Swensen's MAX technology out of the hands of every other government, no matter the cost. Availability:
the Rough Terrain Vehicle (RTV): the RTV is an experimental, off-road freight hauler. This six-wheeled conveyance is a prefabricated vehicle constructed from lightweight materials, which can be assembled in the field quickly by a small, motivated team. Availability:
Ruination: the result of a blending of the minds and bodies of the five Combatrons, Ruination is a true terror to behold. Cruel and capricious, Ruination's mind is primarily driven by Mega-Octane's personality - and nigh-unlimited destructive potential! Availability:
Rumble: an unrepentant thug, Rumble likes to mix it up and wreck stuff. He isn't all that powerful, physically speaking, which is why he tends to rely on trash talk, along with his earthquake-inducing pile drivers, to ward off those who would trounce him. Availability:
Rumbler: a former I.R.S. revenue agent, Earl-Bob was 'encouraged' to enlist in the Army instead - this after he'd demolished seven government vehicles and incurred several lawsuits in the course of his 'aggressive' work to apprehend tax evaders, stamp dodgers and moonshiners! Rumbler comes in Classic and Saga styles!
Runner: out of a need to reject responsibility and obviate obligation, the Runner has running down to a science. Aside from occasionally being snookered into the schemes of his fellow Elders of the Universe, he's managed to avoid duty for billions of years. Availability:
Ruslan: little is known about the newest recruit into the technically defunct Oktober Guard. Of course, since the Gi Joe team has been 'inactive' for some time, its quite possible that Russia assigned Ruslan to the group in an official capacity... Availability:
Rutterkin (Tanar'ri): while rutterkin are stronger and smarter than the teeming hordes of dretches and manes, they are not used in Blood War efforts. No, for reasons unknown, the rutterkin are generally shunned by their demonic fellows instead. Availability:
