Previously: Morpheus and Trinity were accidentally brought to the real world by the Cyber Shredder. They fought with Charlie Nash and White Tiger before coming to an understanding. Joining with Former President Thomas Whitmore’s organization, the two Matrix warriors took part in an assault force determined to take down the Cyber Shredder.
Meanwhile, Starscream took command of the Decepticons and decided to eliminate Soundwave, knowing that the bot was loyal to Megatron. Soundwave survived a battle with the Renegades of Gobatron and now seeks revenge against them for destroying several of his cassettes.
The following fight is the battle between Rinzler and John Preston.
Although Rinzler got the jump on him, John Preston recovered in time to keep from being taken out. Rinzler had been coming down on him with his disks and John rolled, holding on to his guns. Still laying down, he took aim, but Rinzler had leaped over him and was landing on the other side.
John, a master with the gun, didn’t bother firing. He didn’t waist bullets.
Out of punching range, Rinzler threw one of his disks again and then closed the distance. John avoided the temptation to shoot it out of the air, know that that was what Rinzler wanted- focus his attention on his first attack, a distraction, while he made the kill with his real, second attack.
Instead, John stayed down and aimed at the person of Runzler.
The black helmeted digital being spun with impressive speed and reached out of catch his returning disk. He was fast, but bullets were faster.
A shoulder hit knocked Rinzler off balance. John pressed his good fortune with two more shots, and his adversary fell.
The body vanished and John rejoined Morpheus.
“We’ve got him!” Morpheus repoted.
They had developed a program that would purge cyberspace of the Cyber Shredder. According to what Morpheus was saying the program succeeded.
Cyber Shredder knew that his destruction was coming. There was nowhere for him to escape to. Almost.
Although most of the civilization of Earth was confined to the planet, Terrans had found their way into space. Joining the United Federation of Planets as well as contact with dozens of other interstellar (as well as intergalactic and even trans-dimensional and trans-universal) civilizations gave them access to a grand diversity of computer systems.
Cyber Shredder latched himself onto one of the uncanny systems and barely survived extermination.
Soundwave was confused by the new signal he was receiving. He singled it out and was even more surprised by the sentient life form he found in cyberspace.
“Who are you?” Asked Soundwave, unsure if the sentient could hear him.
“I am The Shredder!”
Soundwave was pleased that they could communicate. That would make his questions easier to be answered. “How did you come to be?”
“I have no patience for you questions!” Cyber Shredder said dismissively. Then he asked a query of his own. “How do I get out of here!”
“There is no escape.” Soundwave informed him.
Cyber Shredder proved him wrong. Among the components of the Machine Empire’s equipment which Soundwave had take over after destroying King Mondo, Cyber Shredder found the means to fashion an avatar for his cyber presence to host itself in.
Soundwave watched silently as the body formed and adjusted to itself.
Once acclimated, Cyber Shredder focused on the Decpeticon.
“Now! For your reluctance to obey me, I will destroy you!”
Straight up fight

Cyber Shredder’s avatar body is the same size as Soundwave.
