Poor guy. Rarely has a character had such a pronunciation shaker of a name that the fan nickname got reincarnated as a new character.

Street Fighter x Tekken gave it as How-wrong but Tekken Tag tournament gives it as something else only adding to the confusion.

And that balloon cluster in Panel 3 was a bugger and 3 quarters to do. So many layers...

Usually when I think of the word Hwoarang I think of JonTron trying to say things.
In fact that's probably how you pronounce it.

That swirly vortex of insanity was fun to do, though. It's practically required for any scene involving a bunch of disembodied heads talking to each other.

Guybrush's script originally called for Black Mage and White Mage to be the only ones questioning the name. I decided to exaggerate it by extending it to the rest of the hospital staff, but I realized that A.) Audino and Chansey can't speak English and B.) Roll's a robot with instant access to online databases, so she probably wouldn't mess up Hwoarang's name. As such I had the pleasure of busting out our lesser-seen staff members, Cooking Mama and Poet Slime! ^_^

The Tekken games are ridiculously fun, especially at parties. You can button mash to no tomorrow and still pull off crazy epic stuff. Hwoarang in particular's got some flashy kicks up his chaps.

Was it bad that I thought of Yugioh the Abridged Series when that black ghost thingy (what's the name?) said "Bob"?

According to the Tekken Wiki, it's Hwa-rang.

I never would've got that in a million years.

Really? I managed to pronounce it something very close to that just a few seconds ago.

BTW, I swung over here from BiTF a while back (I think somewhere in the 30s), and have been paying attention to this since.

I had a similar issue with Bass from Megaman series, I kept pronouncing it like the fish. Luckily I was quided to right ways of pronounciation, or Bass would be the next patient for Level 30 Psychiatry.
