Shockwave Cartoon / Movie Information
Info about Shockwave in the Transformers cartoons or movies.
Decepticon scientist and one of the few Transformers to remain behind on Cybertron after eons of war had left the world all but uninhabitable. Shockwave is first seen in a flashback in the episode Out of the Past
. Captured by Starscream, Arcee and Cliffjumper are brought before Shockwave to be interrogated, so that the Decepticons could obtain a decryption code for an Autobot transmission they had intercepted. Shockwave had an impressive selection of methods to extract information but chose a logical and direct approach - a cortical psychic patch, which he had invented.
Another technology Shockwave had successfully rediscovered in his time on Cybertron was the Spacebridge. After untold years of research he had built a working Spacebridge to allow him and the other Decepticons to move on to new conquests - such as the promise of the Energon-rich Earth. However before he could take advantage of the Spacebridge he was thrawted by Arcee and Cliffjumper, who overloaded the Spacebridge. Shockwave pursued the Autobots into the vortex, but Arcee was able to hit Shockwave's one weak spot, his eye, and he did not emerge from the other end of the Spacebridge.
While Shockwave's fate at this time is unknown, he is to play a major role in the third season of Transformers Prime, Beast Hunters, and the creation of the Predacon third faction.
Shockwave is physically perhaps the second most powerful Decepticon next to Megatron himself. Conventional energy beams merely bounce off of his body, and he is capable of unleashing his own powerful attacks from his gun arm. He is a sadistic torturer nearly as disliked by other Decepticons like Starscream as he is feared by the Autobots. His sole physical weakness is his single eye - a well-placed shot can scramble Shockwave's targeting and render him vulnerable.

With Megatron gone missing, Shockwave makes the decision to end his Predacon cloning program. A force of Predacons, united under Predaking could spell doom for the Decepticons as well as the Autobots. He is in the middle of shutting down his Hyperevolution laboratory when he spots an Autobot spy hiding in the shadows among the still-occupied chambers. A plan forms in his precise and brilliant mind: Destroy the Autobot and the lab, and lay the blame for the annihilation of the cloning program at the feet of Optimus Prime and his soldiers. Such an event would drive Predaking into a rage that would doubtless utterly consume the Autobots in its fury.
