The name Shockwave / Shockblast has been applied to several Transformers characters. Logic dictates that they may be looking for one of the following:
- Shockwave's Tower, a self-aggrandizing monument from the Dreamwave Generation One continuity.
- Shockwave, the Decepticon second-in-command and alien mobile artillery from Prime continuity family.
- "Shockwaves", a "Dark Cybertron" prelude story originally published in IDW Publishing's The Transformers: Robots in Disguise #17.
It would be illogical for Shockwave to be confused with...
- Longarm, the Autobot whose identity was stolen by Animated Shockwave.
- Longarm, the disguised identity for an unknown Shockwave mucking about in the Shattered Glass universe.
- Shockpunch, a member of the Blue Mini-Con Team from the Transformers video game.
- Shockfleet, the Japanese name for Energon Mirage.
- Shokaract, the Predacon crab/tank warlord from Beast Wars.
- Six Shot, the redeco and brother of Energon Shockblast.
- Shock Drones, the mass-produced drone-units from the Transformers: Rise of the Chevy Autobots online game.
- Two-head, the KSI Prototype that resembles Shokwave from Age of Extinction portion of live-action film series.
