    When Shockwave inevitably becomes part of the main cast, I really hope he doesn't say the word "logic" every second or third sentence.

    If the dude is cold and logical, show it through his actions, don't turn him into a pokemon

    I agree. I thought it was kinda annoying when he said it in OoTP. Just like;

    'hai gius, dis is shockwave! he logical, so u remember!'

    Yep^


    If anything, I hope the one known as Shockwave speeks rather sparingly.

    I like that tiny pause before he says "logical" to Starscream. As if he's thinking: "Welp, I said the line you all expect me to say. Are you happy now?"

    Shockwave made me laugh when he just says: "Interlopers." and tosses Arcee off to the side like no thing.

    It can still be his catchphrase as long as he didn't do it all the time.

    That line pained me, they could've used the word in such a more 'tasteful' manner. Nonetheless, I loved "INTERLOPER!"

    I also don't hate how he talks so autonomously, I know what they're getting at, it isn't terrible. Iit would've been great to go with a Disney's Hades route sans jokes/sarcasm, but INCLUDING the rare bouts of him flipping his shit with rage (because he tries so hard to suppress all emotions, they'll burst out once in a while to balance him back out).

    My bro... *abovethewaistbrohug*

    Everytime any Shockwave says the word "logic" I want to punch him. Nothing says "I'm trying and failing to sound smart" than saying "logical" every two minutes.

    "Logical" will become the next "One Shall Stand, One Shall Fall"

    I would like to have him saying "This. Is. Illogical." in a particularly nasty defeat [or on his death, since the show loves to kill off its best characters], but other than that, I agree.

    I hope not.

    Then they'll have to inevitably ditch Shockwave being logic based to avoid how annoying it gets.

    Ditto to that. I'm laughing at what my brain's imagining this as.
