This is perhaps the touchiest subject in TransFandom. How can a pair of giant autonomous robots reproduce, after all? The answer to this is painfully simple.
The spark bond as it was explained in section 2.1 has more uses beyond the practical joining of a pair who wish to be sparkbound. The longer two sparks remain merged together during the bond, the more energy is created between the two. Should the bonded pair or group leave their sparks bonded for too long, there is a high chance of a "bud" being created.
The bud is a small polyp of energy off the parent spark and it tends to form on the spark of the member of the bonded pair or group with a higher power level. In the case of a mech being the carrier, they will often go into an extented recharge stasis period while the body directs most of its available energy sources not dedicated to maintaining proper fluid circulation and overall heal

Mentioned in the first section was "bonding." You are probably finding yourself asking what bonding is, exactly. Bonding is the act by which two Cybertronians literally "bond" at spark-level, merging the energies of the individuals into a single energy for a short period of time. The act itself is called "bonding" for more reasons than the simple merging of spark energy, however. The act of bonding creates a bond of sorts between the two who engage in it, creating a link between the two that is the psychic equivalent of what humans assign to the exchanging of rings and vows during a wedding ceremony. Gender, in the case of a Cybertronian, is hardly an issue - especially morally speaking (and especially considering that gender isn't really something they acknowledge), and with so few femmes in existence on their world, it is almost unheard of for a mech and a femme to bond than two m

Perhaps the most important thing that will be discussed in this essay is the very life essence of every transformer. It is a globe of plasma-based energy, blue and pulsating, that resides within a chamber in the chest area of every Cybertronian. Each spark carries an individual resonating signature that makes it unique to the mech or femme it gives life to, and it plays an essential role in many things: determining one's personality, finding a potential mate, and the propagation of the species outside of the Well of All Sparks.
Introduced by Beast Wars canon and used in almost every American interpretation that followed, the spark was a retcon that was widely embraced throughout the transformers fandom. It became a way to say, for certain, that the Cybertronians we grew up with were more than just a race of advanced AI. They were a living species, a mechanical organism with the ability to think, feel, rea
