"Cries and screams are music to my ears."
It is said that Soundwave can hear a fly sneeze. It is also
said that beneath his smooth-talking, affable surface beats the generator coil
of a blackmailer. Those who know these two facts about him are very careful
about what they say within earshot of him. Soundwave is the ultimate opportunist
and will use anything he can to advance his status in the eyes of the Decepticon
Leader Megatron. He doesn't worry about what others think of him because he
knows he is nearly indispensable. Although they all despise him, the other
Decepticons pretend to like him rather than get on his bad side. As Rumble
explains, "Soundwave always has the last laugh."
Soundwave's sensors can detect radio transmissions of the lowest energy levels. He can even "read minds" by monitoring the electrical impulses inside someone's brain circuitry, if he's standing nearby. He serves as the Decepticons' communications relay station- he can keep them all in radio contact with each other within a radius of 100 miles. His photographic memory is due to the immense information storage capacity of the magnetic disks in his chest. He carries a high-amplification directional radiowave sensor and a concussion blaster-gun. He also has great physical strength.
