"Ask Vector Prime" revealed that a version of Dr. Ōnishi also appeared in the Transformers: Generation 1 continuity, where he was part of the team of scientists who worked on the Raiden Initiative that produced the Trainbots. When the time came to name the six robots, Ōnishi-an avid fan of old fashioned trains-was allowed to name Kaen at his own request, expressing hope that the new Autobot would "be a light to many."
