The Ramlak is a giant sea anemone-type creature with massive green tentacles that dwells in the depths of the Sand Sea, capturing any creature that ventures into its territory. The leviathan uses its multiple powerful tentacles to grab any creature sailing in the Sand Sea and pull them towards its giant mouth.
The Ramlak once drank all the water of the Oasis home of the Fishmen, leaving them homeless and stranded. Enraged at the loss of his home, Captain Koinelius Tunar assembled a crew and set out to slay the beast in his floating ship.
When the ThunderCats get caught in a trap that Koinelius' crew had set for the Ramlak, they decide to eat the Cats but before they can fillet the felines, the Ramlak attacks their ship. Upon seeing Lion-O's bravery in driving off the Ramlak, Koinelius lets the ThunderCats become part of his crew as they pursue the Ramlak.
They ultimately locate the beast but Captain Tunar's obsession with revenge leads to the loss of his ship along with the near death of his entire crew. Lion-O chooses to save the crew whilst Koinelius' attempt to slay the creature only results him being dragged into the Sand Sea to his death.
When the Ramlak surfaced again, it swallowed Lion-O only to have its belly ripped open by Lion-O using the Sword of Omens. This causes all water of the Fishmen's Oasis home that the Ramlak had drank to be released into the sands, recreating the oasis for the surviving crew who.

- Koinelius' obsession with the Ramlak is clearly inspired from the story of Captain Ahab's monomaniacal quest for revenge on the giant whale Moby Dick, narrated in the novel of the same name.
