Do you nickname characters/enemies and their things? If so, what?

For stupid fun…

"...kind of." -- Ratio Tile, "Star Wars: Backstroke of the West"

  • Wizards (“Destiny”) – Harry Potter Gandalf
  • Ogres (“Destiny”) – Shrek
  • Crimson Zombies (“Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles”) – Larry
  • Derek Simmons (“Resident Evil 6”) – Cubix
  • Kuma (“Tekken”) – Yogi
  • Devil Jin (“Tekken”) – DJ Kazama
  • Ralph Jones (“King of Fighters”) – One-Punch Man
  • Fllay Allster (“Gundam SEED”) – Psycho-b****
    • Now applies to any female acting like a sociopath.

I call JET Loaders “Starscream”

EXP Loaders are clearly “exploders” but so many people call them “‘E’ ‘X’ ‘P’ Loaders” which may or may not irritate me greatly.

Dukino’s Mum is just “Giant ■■■■ Skag” and Saturn is “Big ■■■■ off Robot ■■■■”

Hehe, you can call EXP-Loaders ‘ex-Loaders’ when they make Torgue proud.


  • HOT Loaders (“Borderlands 2”) – Hotshot/HOTbot
  • any Midget enemy (“Borderlands 2”) – Pocket (insert enemy type)

Dukino is just Duke, for obvious reasons

Surveyors are Flying Salesmen, or occasionally Mosquitos among friends

Goliaths are Fatties

Hyperion Snipers are Try-Hards

Orisa (OW) - "Bionicle Tank"
Sombra (OW) - "Psuedo-Tracer/Tracer Wannabe"
Loaders (BL2) - "Rage-Inducing Androids"
GLaDOS (Portal) - “Hallie”

That’s all I can think of.

Usually, I nickname enemies that kill me. I can’t really post their nicknames here. They’re quite colorful, though.

The only consistent name I can think of is

Deathtrap -> Monkey

Otherwise it’s just whatever colorful descriptions come to mind on the spot. :slight_smile:

@KitRyu:

Monkey

Dude, do you channel Shrek when you say it?:

I mainly stick to names, but I have the tendency to call EXP loaders explodey loaders

Constructors are usually refered to as “Target Practise”.
Handsome Jack is “Handsome Jackass”.

Genji - ‘arrrrrrgggghhhhh’

ION loaders - ‘ugh’

Voracity - ‘oh yay’

I first called EXP Loaders “experience loaders”…

Obviously I was very wrong in what I thought it meant. But I still call them that to mock myself.

I think most people thought that when they first started playing.

Then there is that moment when you realize how little exp they actually give:

Well, look at it this way – finding out what they do was a learning experience. So you’re not entirely wrong there.


@KitRyu: “MUNKEH!”

I disapprove of this statement.

Dukino the Skag = DUNKY DUNK DUNK followed by OMFGS AND OMG HES SHOWING HIS BELLY. A BEEEEELLLLLYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

The nicknames I have for enemies, especially annoying ones, I cannot post here.

I think if we could this would look like if a 12 year old COD player was subtitled

Pretty much, except I am a lot more creative and colorful with ‘nicknames’ than what any CoD 12 year old can come up with.
