The universal greeting (Ba weep granna weep ninny bong) is used as a means to express good will toward alien beings when a language barrier is present. However, it doesn't always work that way.


War for Cybertron (DS)

Kup greeted a newly trained young Autobot with the universal greeting. 

War for Cybertron

Ironhide used the universal greeting on a space slug, which ignored him and carried on. The whole ordeal puzzled Warpath.

Cybertron Adventures

While searching out the Geosynchronous Energon Bridge's main controls deep underground, Air Raid came across a lone Core Mite. The two stared at each other for a bit before Ironhide suggested using the universal greeting on it. The Mite ran off before a confused Air Raid could try it. 

Transformers: Exiles

Thundertron and Wreck-Gar used the universal greeting several times. Wreck-Gar noted that Thundertron did not intend to act peacefully, even though he used the universal greeting when he first encountered the Junkions.
