There is more than just the voice sample that could be misinterpreted in that video. ;)

For Star Fox's opening sequence, I understand it is supposed to be "Emergency, Emergency, Enemy Fighters Approaching, Prepare for Launch." I hear something like "Degree, Degree, Tee Ming Minus, Prepare for Launch." I have tracked down every version, JP, US, EU and they all sound the same. Weirdly, all the other speech in the game is clear : "Let's Go!", "Come in Corneria." "This is Corneria, Pepper Speaking, congratulations on a job well done." "Roger, I'm heading back to Corneria."

Sounds like "Bug!" or "Pug!" to me...

I don't hear any consonants in the recording at all, just /ʊ'ɒ/

On MegaDrive's Double Dragon II I'm not sure if the enemy when dies burps or pukes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J66C5yx ... u.be&t=43s
