Gadget is fine I believe.

And practically every little boy NPC we meet in the Suikoden universe addresses the main character as "Hey, Mister".
And I think Ramada addresses Akaghi as Mister Akaghi.


I think Trishtan was actually healthy wasn't he?

And yeah you are right about Ramada. And Akaghi adresses Ramada as "Mr. Ramada" too.

Enemies deserve to be mentioned too: Neclordia, Mr. Venus, LandShark (aren't these examples of oxymorons?)

Landshark seems decent to me. But Mr. Venus?

Landshark sounds like one of these shark B-movies from recent years (there is actually a movie called Sandsharks and Skysharks is coming soon...).

I hated how they named the furballs in the first titles. If I understand it correctly, they are mostly named after the "Japanese sounds" for fluffiness etc (like if they'd call a dog "Bowwow" in English). So BonBon never really made sense to me (especially with two capital B's).

If those landsharks can burrow through the ground, why aren't they jumping out of the surface and chomping on the residents of Two River?

Oh, and those Megawatt creatures. As in Mega Watt the F#ck???
