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.

History Edit

War for Cybertron (DS) Edit

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

War for Cybertron Edit

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

Cybertron Adventures Edit

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 Edit

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.
