If Capcom were to standardize the names, which direction should they go? I guess this may also confirm that the Shadaloo kings on the SF6 Graffiti wall were in fact Dictator and Boxer not Dictator and Claw. Which is a shame as I really wanted Claw in but I guess Boxer may be more popular. They should leave names the fuck alone Japanese names has been iconic to japanese audience for decades Western names has been iconic to rest of the world audience for decades Community even already found universal names (Dictator, Claw, Boxer) to dodge confusion without need to change shit If forced to pick (wich again i think would be an error) i would say keep western because -i'm personally used to these at this point -it's by far the most common all around the world, so touch it would generate more confusion -Despite the original meaning at my ear they sound overall better: M.Bison demand respect, fit well Dictator Vega is sharp and perfect for Claw as much as "Balrog" would suck on him Balrog makes think at a brute ferocious monster, fitting well Boxer Western names are 3 on 3 good with Vega/Claw being great Jap ones would have a great one M(ike)Bison/Boxer but at the price of ruin badly Claw, 2 good 1 bad Got western winningby Split Decision Btw 7 hours ago, DarthEnderX said: I think neither region get's it totally right. Bison, a big strong beast, is the perfect name for Boxer. Vega, an actual Spanish name, is a fitting name for Claw. Balrog, a demon of shadow and flame, is a great name for Dictator. I mean, i know Vega and Balrog have different origins, but even if "wrong" still would be perfect combination Bison to Tyson, plus Boxer's "symbol animal" is a bull Zorro surname to the aristocratic masked spaniard that play with blades Tolkien's demon name to the devilish boss, plus darkness and flames thing Edited March 11 by CESTUS III ToreyBeans and DarthEnderX 2 Quote Link to comment
