we know in japanese/first release games some of the characters have names that changed later in outside of japan releases. what is the best name change according to you?
(I'm surprised why yamato and tengu man's names didn't change)

Honestly I prefer a lot of the japanese names

Crash Man is theorized to be a localization mistake, but Crash is a way cooler word than clash.

Hard to say. From what I've heard, the "L" sound and the "R" sound are kind of the same thing in the Japanese language.

That is where the name localization issues like Crash Man/Clash Man and Dr. Right/Dr. Light come from.



Edit: Regardless, Crash Man does sound cooler than Clash Man, in my opinion, and its one of the cooler sounding localization changes.
