Most memorable BS dub lines / names

Post by SSJ2FutureGohan » Sat Apr 25, 2015 7:31 pm

Any dumb or just straight up incorrect lines (or names) from the Ocean/Early FUNi dubs of DB/Z/GT that come to mind.

Things like: Kaioshin -> 'Supreme Kai', Tenshinhan -> 'T-i-e-n Shinhan', Shin Kikoho -> 'Neo Tri-Beam' Image

Dubs based from AB Group's scripts include a ton of wierd names. Stuff like Sperm Whale being the equivalent to Kakarot and Kamehameha being called anything they could think of besides Kamehameha (INFINITE LIGHT!) is something we had to live with. Lines? Definetely the "I AM" speech, how can you not love "BY THE POWER OF KAIOH, TRANSFORMATION" instead of "I AM SON GOKU, A SUPER SAIYAN".

I actually don't mind many of the dub lines and names.

"Destructo disk" is pretty corny, though.
Cool stuff that I upload here because Youtube will copyright claim it: https://vimeo.com/user60967147

I pretty much can't stand any moment that was silent in the original, but there's added dialogue in the scene. You can tell since they have the characters talk while their faces aren't being shown.

Some lines:

Frieza after killing Krillin - "Heh heh heh. Pop goes the weeeasel."

Frieza while gruesomely impaling Krillin - "YEE HAW! That's it, buckaroo! Ride 'em, cowboy! Ha ha ha!"

Frieza (Ocean dub) complimenting Ginyu - "You're certainly on the ball today, Captain Ginyu. If you were a dog, I'd scratch your belly. If you were a cat, I'd give you warm milk until you started to purr. But since you're neither of these, I'll just say thanks for a job well done... having these balls makes me feel something that resembles joy. I think I want to caress them."

Perfect Cell after returning from his self-destruction - "You thought you'd never see me again, didn't you? Well, TOO BAD!"

Perfect Cell right before kicking Krillin in the face - "HOO HAH!"

Perfect Cell (Ocean dub) fighting Vegeta - It's best to just watch it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56ZA0dza3JY

Vegeta fighting against the androids - *Insert a dozen robot/machine one-liners here*
"Dragon Ball once became a thing of the past to me, but after that, I got angry about the live action movie, re-wrote an entire movie script, and now I'm complaining about the quality of the new TV anime. It seems Dragon Ball has grown on me so much that I can't leave it alone." - Akira Toriyama on Dragon Ball Super

There is this portuguese (from Portugal) one, don't know if it will sound funny for english speakers as it was for folks here, though.

You know as kids you never notice this but now rereading some of these ocean/funimation lines you can't help but think what were they seriously thinking when they wrote the script. Some of these quotes are not for kids

Krillin: "Woah! Mondo cool!"

How could anybody take the show seriously after a line like that?
