Dub Attacks[edit]

Reverted the latest change, but it didn't give me the opportunity to comment. I'm not sure if Giga Scissor Claw has been used as a dub name for Kyodai Hasami, but it was definitely the name used for Giga Blaster in the English version of Digital Card Arena. --TMS (talk) 03:57, 6 September 2018 (EST)

I remember when I was first on Reddit I did a lot of research for it and found that it was pretty much always correct, though I forgot about that PS1 card game so fair enough. I even looked at the English cards but the English St-33 has different attack values number wise than the Japanese one so they seem unrelated (520/470/290) vs (300/470/510) so can't really be compared. It looks like World 1 actually has a name neither Wiki had, "High Electro Shocker" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rBGaXGt80gs so IDK what the Japanese move in World one was but that's an unlisted dub name. (ALSO I'm 99% sure my EU copy DOESNT call it that). The EU version switched MetalGreymon and H-Kabu's attacks and MetalGreymon had Giga Scissor Claw and H-K had Giga Destroyer (only attack name though) though I Dont think there's EU footage to prove this (but Ive seen it mentioned online a few times that the attacks were switched). Anyway yeah it does seem that card game effed things up and depending on the World 1, we have a new dub name for whatever the attack is. All the recent games use the Japanese name, which Tri used Mega Elec. So yeah, seems we have Mega Electro Shocker/High Electro Shocker/Giga Scissor Claw/Giga Blaster/Giga Destroyer (EU)Muur (talk) 06:32, 6 September 2018 (CDT)
I've seen a video where MetalGreymon in Digimon World had "Giga Scissor Claw" as his attack, but I'm not sure whether it was the American or European version of the game. I assume that they got mixed up because Giga Destroyer was called Giga Blaster (HerakleKabuterimon's attack) in the dub. As far as the English card game goes, I think it's safe to assume that Giga Scissor Claw is Giga Blaster, since both have the highest attack power (there's only 10 points difference anyway, the same difference between the two cards' defensive values). That would make "Mega Electro Shocker" Kyodai Hasami; I think that they had High Mega Blaster in mind, but that's just speculation, and given how little sense dub attack names can make, it's impossible to tell for sure what they were thinking. We'll leave things as they are for now, and I'll discuss with Devkyu what consistent policy we should adopt regarding the English cards and their attack names. --TMS (talk) 13:07, 6 September 2018 (EST)
