Quest #170 - Subtitle Like a Hero

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Since news broke of the western release of the new Dragon Quest Heroes 2, some DQ fans have been immensely saddened by the lack of a proper subtitle & accompanying acronym for the new game.  In Japan, it got the subtitle: Dragon Quest Heroes II: Twin Kings and the Prophecy’s End, but other than in some media or youtube videos, that's never been told to fans.  It's not on the cart or packaging.  The powers that be at NA Squeenix subtitled the first Heroes game The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below, leading all the cool DQ superfans to call it DQHTWTWATBB.  Well, maybe not all of them, but only the ones that count the most (namely, me).

 

Well, with no proper, official subtitle, DQH2 is stuck with the lackluster acronym of DQH2.  4 letters!?  Only 4!?  What is this, some international airport?  No, this cannot be left to stand uncorrected!

 

Your task, should you dare to commit yourself and your brainpower, is to come up with a suitable subtitle for the newest of DQ games.  For weeks I've been calling DQH2 by the acronym DQH2TOWTLS (The One Without the Long Subtitle).  I'm sure one of you can do better than that.  Now, here's the rules:

 

1) Submit a subtitle and corresponding acronym.

2) You may submit up to 3 subtitles/acronyms that will get voted on each.

3) Submit your subtitles right here.  Please put all of yours in the same post.  I'm not going to track them down.
4) You have until June 30th, 2017 to contribute your submissions.
 
Once all of the submissions have been gathered, the community will vote on which ones are the best. The three people who submit the top three subtitles/acronyms will receive a badge.
 
That's it! Get thinking and get hilarious (or actually play the game and make proper ones that fit)!

1. DQH2: Sibling Souls, Courageous Cousins and the Wicked War (DQH2SSCCATWW)

 

 

Here is the text from the prophecy text from the intro in case anyone was needing what it said

 

’Should ever wicked war resume,
A dragon shall the sun consume,  

And sibling souls be born as once before.

But till the land be steeped in blood,  
May sovereign twins, however good,

Ne'er hope to rule in peace forever more.’  

— Ancient Prophecy

SInce some of these are clearly humorous, will there be an honorable subcategory/subvote for most humorous title? I'm not saying a badge, but just a little side vote for fun?

The Kingly Friend and the Fated End.

The Destined Kings and the Doom that Rings.

The Princely Twain and Prophet Slain. (Which makes a few assumptions, I admit).

There. That's as much wordplay as I could come up with in fifteen minutes. I'm kinda fond of the second one myself.

ALSO, it's just short of nine o'clock on the west coast, so last call for submissions, because I want to see how good everybody else is at wordplay.

Oh man, I'll allow extending this for a week. I'm not doing anything online from London.
