FE9 Path of Radiance Localization: Was Greil’s “Harsh Scolding” a “Harsh Beating” in Japanese? [JPN vs ENG]

Please note there may be some spoilers in for Path of Radiance!

Today’s post is a brief request from a reader on another page of this blog. It was a simple concern:

In the English version of Path of Radiance, when Ike tried to touch the medallion, he says his father “scolded him harshly”. Remembering your article about the Shiro slap scene, I became curious and checked the Japanese script. I don’t know Japanese, so I checked Google translate. I honestly don’t know what I expected to find, but I was shocked and horrified that it looked like the “harsh scolding” was originally a bad beating. Maybe I’m just in denial, but I know Google translate is not all that reliable, so I hope you can confirm it for me.

 

The “Shiro slap scene” they mention is in reference to this previous comparison about Fire Emblem Fates.

The short answer: Yes, Greil did strike Ike in some way in Japanese.

For details, let’s take a look at the dialogue!

This post is part of a series on reader requested (and personal curiosity) comparisons between various games’ Japanese and English scripts.

Though the reader requested just this line, I looked into a few of her other colorful moments too –all with Makalov, of course.

So let’s take a look!

FE9: Path of Radiance Localization: Schaeffer’s Death Quote [JPN vs ENG]

This post is part of a series on reader requested (and personal curiosity) comparisons between various games’ Japanese and English scripts. Last time, I looked into a scene from the demo of the upcoming RPG Project Octopath Traveler.

Today’s post concerns Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance. Specifically, the boss of Chapter 22 (Solo). There are very minor spoilers, none to the overall story.

A reader said the following:

Can you translate the Japanese version of Schaeffer’s defeat quote in Chapter 22 of PoR? The English version is pretty (in)famous…
