The name or term Shockwave refers to more than one character or idea. For a list of other meanings, see Shockwave (disambiguation).
Shockwave is a Decepticon from Tarn.
Clarity of thought before rashness of action.

MILITARY OPERATIONS COMMANDER SHOCKWAVE has a cold, brutal, scientific approach to war. He secretly seeks to overthrow Megatron as leader of the Decepticons because he believes logic says he would be a better leader. In the meantime, however, he plays the faithful toady, believing it illogical to telegrah his intentions like some people.

As a laser gun, Shockwave can emit lethal beams of energy from anywhere on the electromagnetic spectrum: gamma rays, X-rays, visible light, infrared rays, radio waves, etc. He can fly in his laser gun or robot mode. He has a high fuel use, but can be powered by nuclear sources if necessary. He is often confounded by intuitive, emotional thinking.



Decepticon World

On Decepticon-dominated Cybertron, Shockwave spent most of his time in  his lab in Tarn. Among his experiments were the Dinobots, who in this world were Autobots Shockwave captured and altered to be his personal soldiers. However, there is question about if he actually controls them...

After the Decepticons overtook the Autobots' main base and the death of Ultra Magnus, Springer issued a direct challenge to Bumblebee's leadership, imploring the gathered Autobots vote "no confidence" in Bumblebee's leadership and install Springer as interim leader. He vowed to begin using Decepticon tactics and begin a campaign to instill terror in the Decepticons' psyche by conducting small, but deadly raids. While he had the support of the senior Autobot leader Hot Spot, Springer's initiative ultimately failed (263 voted "No Confidence", 327 voted against). Despite losing, Springer vowed to support Bumblebee and ordered all of his followers to follow his lead. In a gesture of solidarity, Bumblebee promoted Springer to City Commander, the position held by the deceased Ultra Magnus.

Hot Spot died leading a final group of Autobots to the Decepticon-controlled Space Bridge. He was incinerated by Shockwave's powerful cannon blast, along with nearly 40 other elite warriors and scientists. The two remaining Protectobots, Streetwise and Blades, grieved for their fallen leader shortly after Bumblebee was presented the Autobot Matrix of Leadership. During the battle, Megatron was killed by Sky Lynx, who was also able to dislodge the Matrix of Leadership from Megatron's arm cannon. Shockwave is now the presumed leader of the Decepticons.
