Cyberglyphs definitions by Leathurkatt-TFTiggy Cyberglyphs definitions by Leathurkatt-TFTiggy

After doing up this image as a collaboration effort with *BonitaOnePrime, I decided to post something with some probable Cyberglyph definitions beyond the in canon A to Z translation so people could actually see at least my view on their definitions. I originally wrote these up on June 21, 2010. The only one I know has a canon definition is Q - Prime, the rest are extrapolated from various images of the bots and who has what glyph on them. As I get more researched, this list may shift slightly depending on what I find. In addition to the letters, I've included the numbers 0-9 from glyphs that were originally made as badges for a Transformers Movie Verse Console Game, which also included all but two of the letters as well. I also posted the in canon A to Z and 0-9 translations for the Autobot and Decepticon Cyberglyphs as well. If you use any of what I have made here, give credit where credit is due.

It should be noted that, at least from what I can figure out from canon evidence, Transformers are born with the Cyberglyphs they bear, these are not chosen and added later, but inherited and "branded" in place when their chassis forms, not unlike with human birthmarks. What glyphs are there is dictated by the lineage and personality inherent in that particular bot's Spark. Additional Cyberglyphs can be etched or painted on later like tattoos, but the bot is very unlikely to know what they mean in the case of the ones from the "Language of the Primes", while the Autobot and Decepticon Cyberglyphs will be well known to them.

If anyone wants to see what I actually started with to make these files, have a look at the following links below:
Thirteen (also known as the Dynasty Primes)
Units of Time
Laser Core
Anatomic Euphemism
Great Smelter
Slag (slang)
Unicron's Spawn

I take it this is from the "Movie Verse" considering some of the terms you used?
Very awesome. :)
Nice job! ^_^
Leathurkatt-TFTiggy Apr 26, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes it is. Movie verse all the way. **smiles** The other set is from G1.
afrolady114 Apr 27, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
^_^ Ah, thanks! That clarifies a lot of things! :)

No problem.

this is awesome!:dance: though it'd be a very time consuming project attempting to actually write something using these glyphs... they look very complicated and detailed^^;
Leathurkatt-TFTiggy Apr 26, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
**chuckles** You might think so, but really it's no more complicated than any other alpha numeric writing system. Once you get used to it, it's pretty easy to do.

that might take a while:XD: though it'd be interesting to see what other people would think were I to start writing notes using these
