- Valak Mountain, when Shulk surrenders the Monado to Mumkhar and he backs away with his arms out like a true hostage scene good guy should:

- Next scene, when Shulk is running towards Sword Valley and does one of his "we WILL save Fiora!" bits and he trips mid-delivery:

- "I've been pumping my guns!" Five second slow pan of Reyn's guns until Fiora breaks the silence:

- When half of the group meets the Machina for the first time, Reyn rotates to the left and looks at nothing in particular:

Maybe it doesn't count, but sometimes Reyn was in such goofy armour that I couldn't take a (serious) scene with him in it seriously. Also, early on Shulk is biting into a sandwich, but the graphic model for the sandwich doesn't change even though he's "eating" it.

When Shulk is trying to revive Fiora and the water isn't working so he's like "I know, I'll just cop a feel while she's unconscious."

You mean when he tries to yank the triangular badge off of her chest? Yeah, that made me go "What the heck are you DOING, Shulk?!" as well.

If you mean the watery kiss, however, that's supposedly a way to get water down the throat of someone who is too weak to drink themselves.

I've got another one that I'd be interested in the reactions of those who say Dunban's English VA was better than the Japanese one:

Am I the only one who thought his "No one blink for a second!" line was laughably bad? You know, right after the party gets introduced to Riki and Frontier Village and they're all calmly talking strategy. Then Dunban says something in that same calm demeanor...but then suddenly swipes his arm and screams, "No one blink for a second!" And then they all just go back to talking calmly like no one noticed Dunban's momentary Tourette's Syndrome moment. That line cracked me up, it was a rare terriblly delivered line in an otherwise mostly great English dub of the game.

When I started the game, on of the best armour was Swimming Oil and I had that on Shulk during the first Metal Face fight and serious, serious cutscene, and dressed like that, there was no way I could take anything about Shulk seriously. This probably happens at least once in many people's playthroughs.

>Mottman, Dunban's VAs
When people say that Dunban's English VA is "better" than the Japanese, I don't think they mean the ability to voice act, but the actual voice itself. I also think the Japanese VA sounds far too young for him, like he's the same age as Shulk and Reyn, and I don't like it. Maybe also because I never liked Dragonballz.

I do remember the "blink" line somewhat and I did have a "what was that?" moment. What was the original supposed to be like? You got a Youtube link of it?

The line itself didn't really bother me, and it's not the only line with ridiculous gesturing, but eh.
