Uncut or not
I'm wondering if we should make it uncut or not? It does sound more brutal and true to his nature when he uses the word "ass whoopin'", but I suppose their may be younger users. What do you think Zarbon?

- I actually took the Funimation version to confirm that. The word "ass" was not used in either version. It was strictly fan-made from what I remember. There was a large controversy about this. The same kind that came from the King Kai quote. You know which one I'm talking about. The one that went "fat f**king half pint"...which was inaccurate as well. He says: "Fast talking half pint." There is never an instance where profanity is actually used in any of the Funimation versions. Many people want them to say that and they hear what they want to hear, but oftentimes that is inaccurate. So when it comes to this specific quotation, the original version never mentions the word "ass". That was, it seems, a fan insert on youtube as were many other inserts which I steer clear from. I will only be going by the official releases. - 01:35, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
That is not true I believe. I have the original uncut DVD of Super Android #13 from 2003. He does say "ass", twice in the movie, and the subtitles do spell it out as well. He also yells "DAMN YOU" when launching an energy attack at Goku, who just repeatedly gets up after being smashed around. But, yes the King Kai one is a fake, I'm actually the one who put it on YouTube haha. Funimation does tend to use profanity in their uncut versions, a perfect example is the Uncut Special Editions, "damn", "dammit", "ass" and "bastard" are used many times during the Namek Saga. I just went and re-watched the scene on the DVD right now just to clarify. He says "Now I can't believe that the great Goku is catching an ass-whoopin' from those boys, if he can't even handle the indians...why bring out the chief". He also says "I was programmed to kill your ass, and that's exactly what I'm gunna do...you hear!?."

- In relation to that, I know that I've heard the word bastard for sure (Krillin says it) and damn is also fine. I'll be using those words no doubt. But the word "ass" seems so absurd to be on the main page. I don't know, I'd rather not put the word up as it's only in the one version (I re-watched the part as well, it's when 13 first appears). What do you think? Of course, I can't think of another instance where the word ass is actually used or if I'll be needing it ever again as 13 seems to be the only one who ever says it. Is it alright if I skip that word. You'll get bastard, and damn, and darn though. - 01:56, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
Oh no that's fine I was just wondering about staying true to the original uncut versions... but then again their may be younger users on here so it may not be such a good idea, at least not on the main page. Just thinking like a hardcore DBZ fan haha.

- Yeah, I was giving that some thought myself (as I prefer the uncut version myself) but then I thought of all the fans and that we should think about younger audiences, etc. I'd rather avoid that word merely because I wouldn't want the younger users to see that, you know. Otherwise, I'd completely be with you on this as I checked out the version and yes, it's totally awesome in the uncut version (I'm a hardcore villain fan so of course I prefer the uncut). But, I will be using darn, damn, etc. Those words don't seem too harsh, even for young audiences, and they appear in both the edited and uncut versions so we're safe with those. Do you think darn, damn, etc. is alright, because they seem rather normal and not too profane in my opinion (as they aren't direct attacks at a character but emotional outpourings). - 02:07, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
