- “Soundwave superior, Autobots inferior.”
Soundwave s Megatron's communications officer, joint second-in-command of Megatron's forces, along with Starscream and Shockwave, and the spy master of the Decepticons. One of Megatron's earliest followers, one of his most trusted and closest lieutenants, and, many believe, instrumental to his rise, he uses a veritable army of Minicon Deployers to learn everything there is to know about his allies and his enemies, often acting as his right-hand man in the absence of Shockwave. He is known for being "such a nerd", and was once Shockwave's Vice-Warden of Kaon Prison.
He just sneaks about, patiently looking for Autobot transmissions and creeping you out. Soundwave has the ability to receive transmissions from anywhere at any time, bar the shielded Autobot bases. This allows him to spy on every being on the planet in the hopes of picking up communications that might be related or has any connections with the Autobots.
