    To be honest I’m not sure the DK Rap was bad translation…just bad writing.

    I’m not sure if all of these are bad translations.
    There’s a few that are just bad writing.

    The DK-Rap isn’t a bad translation, it’s just monkish !

    English isn’t my first language so I’m probably just missing something, but where’s the error in number 4? I’ve played that game but I can’t remember the quote and where it was, so I don’t know the context o.O Should it be “ever since” instead of “as soon as”, maybe? *confused*

      Zombie Kitten — there’s no mistake in the grammar. I have a feeling that maybe there was a certain skill or bonus in the game that was lost, and that skill or bonus was translated as “the ability to love” instead of “the Heart Power” or something like that. Just a guess, as I’ve never played the game, but I edit translations and I see this kind of thing a lot. :)

         Thanks for the reply :) If that’s true, then it seems that the mistaken version sounds actually more awesome than what it originally was, kind of poetic :D

    Dk rap isnt bad translating, just bad writing, the street fighter quote isn’t a mistanslation at all, as it makes perfect sense, and the Zelda quote does sound a bit wrong, but isn’t as the actull characters name was Error, so it isn’t a mistranslation at all. Also when listing things, better to go from 10 to 1, so that you build up to the final one. I really felt like putting all this out there, as this is just stupid.

    actually, games like catlevania have  a lot of that feelings crap, so, that translation may be right
