Well, Knock Out has prior counterparts; just not in G1. Unless you do
count Micromaster Knockout (as I like to).
Which you shouldn't. None them are a red sportscar or a medic, and what's in a name? Would you consider Armada Smokescreen to be a new version of G1 Smokescreen?
Yes, I would. I don't understand, if they don't look
the same in every one of their incarnations, they're not worthy of being an earlier incardination?
The word is "incarnation", and no.
Why didn't my spell check pick that up like it did the first time?
To me, a name is more than just a monicker,
it's part of the character and the traits it should possess. Smokescreen, at least to me. has to be a red and blue race car to qualify, Ratchet has to be an ambulance or medic, Starscream has to be a jet and a schemer, etc.
Yes, but Knock Out's traits in Transformers Prime are completely new. This is not the first time Knock Out has been in a cartoon or Transformers fiction. Regardless to which characteristic of Knock Out a fan favors, there have
been previous incarnations of Knock Out, and that won't change.
