Somebody needs to tell me right now.

This is super important and deserves its own thread.

What does Chun Li say when she wins a match in Street Fighter II?

I need to know immediately.

I used to think she was saying "¿qué tal?"... I have a sneaking suspicion this is not correct.

There's something Kasumi says in DOA2 that always baffled me. Sounds like "tiny cuts" but I know it's Japanese.

I've been a fan of NiGHTS into Dreams since I was in middle school.
I spent WELL OVER A DECADE thinking Reala (reel-uh) says "there is no NiGHTS" before you fight him.
It turns out Ree-ah-la is saying "Beadichinoa NiGHTS" which, to be fair, is made up language for the game.

I'm still haunted by this.

..she also says "spinning bird kick" in English.

Another example: Ken is american, but speaks Japanese when he says "Hadoken" and "Shoryuken"...hmmm

When I was a little boy, I thought Dhalsim was saying “tiger” when he kicks you from across the screen. I still don’t know what he’s really saying, but I’m fairly sure it’s not “tiger”. :lol:

Yeah, and if you have a glitched version that fails to load, you'll get a black screen where she shouts that. I had a friend with a burned copy that would often do that. He always thought she was saying "tiny cocks", but he had a dirty mind.
