*head bobbing*   *machine sounds*

There's only one I can think of that could possibly work better than Doubledee's:

 

Person 1: Slowthink Nuhvok! Oldbone and bogfoot!

Tamaru, actually, back before Lewa spoke treespeak.

 

The animation implies that removing one's mask is a rude or obscene gesture in Matoran culture. Since we don't wear Kanohi, flipping the bird seems like the closest analogue

As hilarious as these may be, they're unfortunately a bit ineffective as shibboleths. Thank goodness these are hypothetical, because I think we'd be lost if BZP had to create an "official" shibboleth for the Bionicle fandom.

I think if there had to be an "official" shibboleth it would either have to be

Clean it all

it must be cleaned

 

or

To be honest, I think any one of the suggestions that've come up in this topic thus far could easily work.

 

It's going to be hard to get everyone to agree on just one.

Exactly why I said that if we were tasked on voting for an official Shibboleth of BZP, we'd have a hard time.

Shibobolth: Back, back you foul creature! One more step and I'll -

 

Response: I'll take it from here, wise one.

Lets see how many people enjoy being called a 'foul creature'.

Elemental Rahi in Gen2, anyone? A write-up for an initial video for a G2 plot

 

I really wish everyone would stop trying to play join the dots with Gen 1 and Gen 2 though,it seems there's a couple new threads everyday and often they're duplicates of already existing conversations! Or simply parallel them with a slightly new 'twist'! Gen 2 is NEW, it is NOT Gen 1 and it is NOT a continuation. Outside of the characters we already have I personally don't want to see ANY old characters return. I think it will cheapen the whole experience to those of us familiar with the original line...

You don't have to call them a foul creature. Refer jokingly to an insect, dog, cat, common enemy in a multiplayer video game, etc. as a foul creature and it makes perfect sense (at least in my mind :P).

We should totally make a poll and somehow get an official BZP Shibboleth!

Generally, a shibboleth is mean to be kind of innocuous inconspicuous, there are plenty of exceptions like "Yksi" were the White Guard asked people to say it; if they pronounced it wrong (with /ju/ rather than /y/) they were shot on the assumption they were a Russian fighter etc. Not inconspicuous.

But someone can easily have a vague idea about something & guess the right answer... generally isn't an optimal choice for a shibboleth.

 

The main thing is; how are you going to slide "I am Takanuva..." into a conversation?

Why not just ask them flat out if they're a fan of Bionicle?

It's not really less conspicuous...

That's the point I was making earlier. Some of these are really conspicuous.

This one could work in casual conversations, at least if you often get the bus...

Piraka rap was horrible, let's pretend it never existed...

 

Person 1: He's got more rocks in his head than a...

Person 2: Po-Matoran...

This works the best if you ask me, although you have to know people you can call stupid!

 

My idea is to use the word "cataclysmic" for anything bad that happens. It should pass over most people's heads (as long as you don't say it too often) and it should at least trigger a look from another bonkles fan.

They won't let us. Although on the off hand that anyone ends up talking about bad rap music dropping "piraka" in amongst some other words carefully might be enough that someone might gloss over the 'gibberish' or click... Not a shibboleth as such but an odd calling card.

I swear it'll happen at least once before the world forgets Bionicle xD

Person 1: "We'll find a way. Together!"

Person 2: "Cuz that's what friends do."

 

...no?

 

Person 1: "Do you know what Turaga Vakama would say?"

Person 2: *sigh* "Irresponsible?"

 

But that one's a little bit conspicuous, too...

 

And one that's more for BZPower than BIONICLE:

 

Person 1: [as a phrase in normal conversation] "... secret stomache message..."

Person 2: "brakelatabasaasta feed me" :wacko:

 

Of course, I'm not quite sure how to pronounce "stomache" or "brakelatabasaasta" (can't even remember how to spell the latter), and I'm not sure what possible use the phrase "secret stomache message" would have in normal conversation...

But I would laugh so hard if I heard this happen.

How about whenever exaggerating quantity, use 941 instead of thousands or tons. Again, not really a shibboleth, but could be quite subtly done to non-fans, while fans should recognise the hint.

I'm gonna start doing this.

 

"Dude, it's like 941 degrees outside"

"Jeez, there's about 941 bugs out here!"

"That test was loooong. Like 941 questions."

 

EDIT: is the reason for this because of the conversion to normal measurements from Bionicle measurements? A Mio is like 941 meters, right?

It's actually from one of Teridax's quotes. "We both know there are 1000 ways I could kill you now, and 941 of them hurt."

Nope, 941 in base 6 would be 4205. Still not a number that would come up in casual conversation.

Did someone bring up base 6? Even so, it's fun in the usage that SPIRIT showed a couple comments back.

I'm just reading this to myself thinking, "What nerds!" then realize that I'm also into this, not that it's a bad thing. :3

 

 

But I dunno as for a Saying and Response, I believe something like:

 

S: Trust in the mask...

 

R: ...let it be your guide.

 

or

 

S: The three virtues...

 

R: ...unity, duty, destiny.

 

 

 

I don't think the opening saying should sound or even mention destruction, as it may cause alarm to non-fans... :P

 

 

>"There were like 1000 questions on that test; 941 of them hurt."

If this isn't going to be my senior quote, I don't know what will be.
