I remembered a few more:
Raiden on SNES' MK1 seemed to say "Vai no cabaréééé" (Go to cabaret).
On MK2 it sounded sometimes like "Vai no Caverá", Caverá is a small balneary we have in my town.
On Skate or Die 2 the voice at the title sounded like "Gay or die!".

Why did Capcom think that shitty and choppily-animated "HD" remake of Street Fighter was a good idea?

Choppiness is, I suspect, because of frame-based hit/hurtboxes and adding frames would change gameplay balance…or make the hit/hurtboxes not make visual sense. (Not sure why this is in the misheard VA topic, though.)

Although I haven't played that game, I think sometimes game producers just want some quick and easy money, just as is Ninja Gaiden Trilogy.
It's a total disrespect to the fans, who had made the franchise what it's today.
Any misheard voices in this HD version?

In Wolfenstein 3D, I heard Otto Giftmacher say Anna vetää! ("Get lost!" in Finnish). It's actually Donnerwetter! ("Damn!").

The hero of the MasterSystem's version of Shadow Dancer seems to invoke his magic powers with his mouth full of food.
Maybe that's why his mask is covering his mouth so he won't spit in anyone. :D

The Berserker monsters in Quake II: Se ois tässä!, which means "It's here!" or perhaps "This is it [the end of your life]!" in Finnish. (Actually, they say Trespasser!)

He is saying "Donald Trump's wife is in trouble!"

Isn't this that exactly what Raphael says on SNES' Tournament Fighters? :D

The voice isn't all that important, what I want to know is who's giving that YAAAAAAAA! scream. Don't know if it's the player casting his magic or the enemy (getting stabbed? he is drawing his sword and pointing it somewhere.)

Wow that's a cool use of an excellent voice sample. This feels like one of those games where I'd be playing even if it's bad, just to do that all the time. :lol:

On Raphael's projectile attack I hear "jamboree". :-)
