- For the article about the 1980's version of this character, see Ratar-O.
Power-hungry and ruthless, Ratar-O's sole ambition is to obtain the Sword of Plun-Darr so that the Rats become the dominant species on Third Earth, as they were during the time of his ancestor Ratilla who wielded the mighty sword.
Ratar-O knows that the Sword of Plun-Darr is buried in the heart of Mount Plun-Darr which was raised around the sword many years ago by a young Jaga after he obtained it by defeating Ratilla. In order to further prevent the sword from falling into the wrong hands, Jaga put a curse on it as well, spelling certain death for anyone who dares to retrieve it. Not wanting to risk his own hide, Ratar-O employs hundreds of Thunderian Slaves that he bought from the Lizards to dig for the sword, letting his right hand man Mordax and other Rats oversee the excavation.
After learning of the mining operation from Pumyra, one of its escapees, Lion-O, Panthro, and Pumyra head to rescue the slaves while Tygra and Cheetara try to locate the Sword of Plun-Darr and the Gauntlet of Plun-Darr. While Tygra and Cheetara succeed, Lion-O and his gang are captured and brought before Ratar-O who, after narrating the tale of his ancestor Ratilla, decides to execute the ThunderCats.
Fortunately, Tygra and Cheetara's action of removing the Sword and Gauntlet of Plun-Darr triggers an earthquake which causes Ratar-O's palace to collapse, burying everyone under a pile of rubble. As Lion-O emerges from the debris, Ratar-O attacks him. Mordax, who had initially captured the ThunderCats, has a change of heart and throws Lion-O the Sword of Omens and the Gauntlet of Omens, allowing him to defeat Ratar-O who flees underground, never to be seen again.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Despite being based on the original 1980s series' character of the same name, Ratar-O's design appears to be inspired more from the 1980s version of Ratilla.
