    Shockwave has been referred to as "a computer on legs." This is not far from the truth. Logic rules Shockwave's thought processes and is the source of his every inspiration. He sees emotion as a weakness and a distraction. His cold and calculating modus operandi is supported by his frightening and exceptionally powerful form.

    Shockwave is possibly even more powerful than Megatron, to whom he appears to be loyal. Perhaps logic may one day dictate that the time to replace Megatron's flawed, emotion-fueled rule is at hand. After all, the only logical choice for Decepticon leader would be Shockwave himself.

    Red Alert is paranoid, which is not a bad trait in a Security Director if it's kept in check by reason, logic, and common sense. Red Alert is... not always so good with those other traits. The other Autobots appreciate his good intentions and eye for detail, but his ratio of false alarms to real emergencies is not always the greatest, and it makes them less likely to take him seriously when a threat is real. Inferno does his best to keep his good buddy Red out of trouble.

    Shockwave would stomp a mud hole in Red Alert.

    And as much as i disliked Red Alert in the cartoon...that would be EXTREMELY fun to watch

    :rip  Red Alert

    Shockwave has the double whammy going for him in this one. He is way more likeable/popular AND he would be the better fighter. Can't see why Red Alert would get any votes. Maybe we could have our first shutout on hand here (although I am sure some smartass will vote for Red Alert just to be a douche bag!)

    Shockwave in about 3 seconds. Sersiously, a Transformer who cut off Primes head to use for his own devices, who beat the snot out of Megatron, who kept the corpse of Cyclonus on his wall, and that's just in the begining...

    ... Against someone who's almost afraid that their own shadow is out to get them.

    Outside of "I always vote for the underdog" votes, I can't see anyone voting for Red.

    Shockwave all the way. Too intelligent, too cunning, too skilled, and just way too damn evil for Red Alert to handle. He probably wouldn't even see what hit him, or where it even came from before he is shattered into little bitty components

    So voting for Red Alert means one is a douch bag, but you ppl defend that Warpath can beat Menasor is not??

    THe odds on Red alert is far greater then Warpath hade vs Menasor.

    Warpath hade 0% and Red Alert has like 10%.

    Shockwave for the win , easy.

    The only way Red would win is if Shockwave's logic circuits were thrown in chaos trying to work out why he was even bothering with Red as an opponent

    for all the reasons above, shockwave hands down no contest. Besides, if you've ever seen energon, Shockwave it is, no descriptions needed.

    Well, since you showed cartoon Shockwave, who can't shoot for shit and was beaten by Brawn with a pistol -- keep in mind that Brawn usually punched things, not shoot them -- I think Red has a pretty good chance. Hell, he wouldn't even have to move.

    Now, if you're talking about comic Shockwave, then forget it, Shockers would win easily. But I'll go with the cartoon since this is a cartoon showdown.

    Red for the win.

    I defend anyone who can come up with a scenario for either warpath or red alert. I didnt vote for either of them though and my post was directed at the people who say 'i'm voting for this character solely so he doesnt get shutout' or 'he was my favorite' instead of actually coming up with a scenario in which that character could win. IMO I question anyone who voted for Warpath or Red Alert. But it is there right to do so, just hope they are doing it for legitimate reasons and not just for the hell of it.

    It can be the cartoon or the comic version. There is nothing stated that this is soley about the cartoon (even though thats what decided who was in the tournament) if you would rather take the comic version or a mixture of the two, that is completely up to you.


    BTW llfalcon, the other two somewhat stated their reasons for voting for Red Alert...what was yours??
