Preferences aren't "wrong." They're either agreed with or not. So, technically your understanding of English is wrong.

SEE?! It's already starting!

Comprehensive list (wip):   Monsters:           Towns:       Dungeons:       People:       Now less relevant OP:  

 

It's a different monster.

 

Yeah, I found it.  A massive point of thanks to Aeryn for the monster wiki:

 

http://www.woodus.com/den/resources/monster_wiki_result.php?monsternumber=2011&pickedname=HellCloud%20(BOSS)

It's Cumulus Vex

 

 

I like HellCloud better but that name change doesn't bother me.

 

Probably Dumbira would be Notso macho then.

That would be correct.

Renaming in Dharma still exists, so you can change his name there if it bothers you.

If you have the ability to decrypt and modify the game files, you can change the characters' names before starting a new game. I won't be doing this for my first playthrough of the English version, though, as I'd like to experience the remake as fully as possible. The only thing I'll be changing is the music - I'll be restoring the Japanese symphonic music right away.

Thanks to Nintendo's DQ7 website, we now know that the Imp is now called Little Devil (which, ironically, is pretty close to the original name for the monster we now call Imp).

I wonder if Pepe will remain Pepe or a new name is being used for that character. I remember we had a Pepe fan here.

I think in one of the hour streams I saw he was still named Pepe, however I wasn't paying too much attention so I may be mistaken.

I've heard somewhere that the Shield ogre is now known as escudrge. Where did that name come from? 

 

There are a handful of names from DQM Lite.

K. When I looked in the bing link, it just showed me the shield itself, and I was wondering if I could see any real evidence to back up your claim.

...My first bit was to say some names for DQ7 monsters are present in DQMLite, such as Half hog, and Whole hog.  I wouldn't be surprised if Shield Ogre is one of them.

 

The second bit, was to actually answer your question as to how they came up with it.  It's the Portuguese word for the word that in English is "shield."

If it makes you feel better Iggy, I understood what you meant with that post.

Some GameXplain footage revealed some names a few days ago

 

Hondara to Pike

Orka to Piers

King Burns to King Donald

Leesa to Lisette

Old man on the cliff to Dermot the Hermit

HotStone to Sizzling Stone

Amitt Harvest to Pilchard Harvest

Mollie to Pearl

Amitt to Mayor Mayde

FishSub to Pilchard Sandwich

AmitDonut to Pilchard Pie

God to The Almighty (Will he still be called Numen when fought, as that's his DQM name? I think he's worth distinguishing from Zenus...)

Either AmitDonut and AmitSnack to Pilchard Pie

Thank you.

 

Well, Numen might just be his personal name.  Afterall there is that "personalization" of knowing and being friends with God present in Mervyn's history.

I can't take King Burns seriously anymore. What was wrong with his old name?

You're welcome!

 

Perhaps. I do hope the name "Numen" is kept for the battle at least, it's really fitting knowing the definition imo. That, and distinguishing from the other Almighty who got ripped to shreds as a plot point in IX.

AmitDonut would be Pilchard Pie. AmitSnack looks nothing like a pie. (It's fish and crackers.)

 

(The AmitDonut is more of a bun than a pie, but whatever.)

Yep, definitely the AmitDonut.

I never actually understood the difference mechanic wise, so thanks.

 

Well, the funny thing is, mechanically they're no different.  Both give the same HP restoration rate of just under a Herb.  15~30.  LOL, it's hilarious.  I guess too much fry oil, or Horii's really saying something here about the value of certain food groups, since the FishSub could heal for 30~40 in the original.  Shame you can't keep it in this game, as it seems like the cutscene automatically strips the player of the Pilchard Sandwich.  Though, then again, I don't know if I'd eat that same FishSub at the end-game or post-game, having been sitting in the bag of infinite holding for months?  If it does, you have wonder about Mollie's preservation techniques...what's really in that sandwich?
