Top Ten Things that 4kids Did When They Dub Anime4Kids Is a well hated anime dubbing company for many reasons. Infamous for dubbing Yu-Gi-Oh! Here are some popular reasons why a lot of people hate 4Kids(I also hate them, apparently)
The Top Ten
For nostalgia every 90s kid loves 4kids Pokémon even if they changed things. Look they would never ever show the Porygon episode, just watch a parody in The Simpsons when they go to Japan.
They don't care If the fans of the original anime felt offended or not, The only thing they care about Is only making a million dollars In the cheapest way - MLPFan
Don't vote if you grew up with 4kids Anime or say Anime isn't a cartoon. (Japanese - Animation)
They just care about money...-Vestalis
This is stupid. If they considered themselves as for kids, then show kids actually child friendly shows! Not pick up violent anime or hentai ones just to ruin them - MLPFan
They ruined Kirby: Right Back at Ya for me. - MeeMeeCandy777
Sucked into another dimension, they say. But when the kid looks It up and found the original version online, It turns out that the character was killed. - MLPFan
Thank goodness the didn't dub death note because I would had to deal with this nonsense - BoyGenius234
Just like the shadow realm in yu gi oh but I kinda did like the consept though
Imagine if they dub Death Note. They would probably make the deaths into the note of people that disappear. They would turn the deaths into disappearence. And I bet the voices will sound to kiddy and annoying to be in such a serious anime like Death Note.
The funny thing is that most kids hate them. - Tia-Harribel
They actually do this a lot - MLPFan
Happens to Smile! Purikuya and changes it to Glitter Force
Especially the One Piece 4Kids dub had some of the worst voices ever. They should hire people that actually do good voices, not a bunch of random people that cannot act.
Cough*Nami's 4Kids English dub voice*cough. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Couldn't be any worse than how World Events Productions did it! - Interrogator
What was the anime with the worst voice acting(Japanese)? Whatever It was, It has better voice acting than all the shows 4Kids have(their dub versions) - MLPFan
I heard that Ichigo from Tokyo mew mew was cute and innocent on the original anime version. And with Mew mew power, as Zoey, she was turned into loud and annoying. - MLPFan
Oh god... I remember in the one piece 4 kids thing... Ussop... They turned him into some ' idiot that sounds like he just restocked the candy in his van - TrisTris
I can imagine what would happen to that Homura Akemi vs Mami Tomoe fight from Madoka Magica:Rebellion If they dare to take Madoka Magica and ruin It. Instead of having an epic gun fight, They made them use pink staffs that shoot glitter beams(or something like that) and make the setting look like cotton candy and rainbows. And they'd be smiling and the fight was because they were just "training their powers"(In the real version, It was actually a fight, not training). And the time Homura shot herself will be edited and the blood on Homura's face because of that into strawberry/blueberry kool aid that was splashed on her face. And the time where Homura tried to shoot Mami will be cut. - MLPFan
That gun fight is epic. I don't want a 4kidsdub to ruin it.-KyokoKuchisakeSuccubi
I liked some of their openings. Sometimes the reason why they change it because copyright can change, or they weren't allowed to use the original and English dub it in the first place.
The worst is the one piece - BoyGenius234
I don't like Sonic X and all, But the original japanese opening was somewhat better than the 4Kids one. At least they didn't say "Gotta go fast! "Repeatedly or "Faster! Faster! Faster! " - MLPFan
Nothing beats a jelly filled donut!
Jam filled doughnuts.
But anyway we know the weren't
Ice cream is so yummy! I love 🍨.
Magical DoReMi is sooo annoying!
I like the Pokemon songs.
Soundtracks are actually an important aspect in anime(on my opinion). Especially when they suit the situations a lot. So why replace them with stuff like elevator music or just random sounds? - MLPFan
Soundtrack and audio effects does make a good impact when comes to make an epic or hilarious scene in anime, there's also the moments where the sound is NOT even required and still makes an impact.
In soem cases from 4Kids adaptations, they do use some unecessary and repetitive sound effects that manages to kill a good scene. One good example is the anime adaptation of Monster Rancher, where there's a lot of times they do use the VERY same soudntrack is ALMOST all episodes. What is the poitn of that?

And most people hated this idea. AniplexUS and FUNimation(my favourite dubbing companies by the way) didn't do this. As they kept the characters with their canon original names(sometimes, they use the english pronoun of the name. Like example If Lelouch from code geass was pronounced "Rurushu" in the japanese due to the accent, the english dub simply made It "Lelouch" instead. But still uses the canon name the original creators gave). While 4Kids changed the characters name which angers most of the original anime's fans. - MLPFan
Honestly I don’t mind if they change the character’s original name (It’s creator’s choice, what did you expected? )
Jack Levin (F-Zero Gp Legend): Who the F-Zero changed my order of glass of banana juice into sippy cup version! I’m 20 something years old for crying out loud!
Why don’t they just use one-piece swimsuits? Or larger bikinis? - RoseWeasley
No! Don't do that! How about pajamas instead?
Cheesy words are "Cheese Whips", "Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches", "Guacamole and Chips", "Jelly Filled Donuts", "Caramel-Pistachio-Strawberry Ice Cream Sundaes", "Pepperoni Pizzas", and "Chocolate Chip Cookies".
