I know this is just a nitpick but I like the word Spirit Ball more it just sounds more cool Sokidan.

I Agree with RMK fully, Spirit Ball just brings a GenkiDama to mind.

Well I don’t, the English dub names are way better and they are NOT goofy. And spirit ball doesn’t cause any confusions

Hey RMK why do you use words such as Sokidan and Kaio. Is that how you mimicking the original manga or what?

Fair question. It's personal preference in sound, really, just the same way I like my Street Fighter attacks as "Hadoken" and "Shoryuken". The English dub of Dragonball wasn't bad, but I found a few of the translated names to sound a tad goofy.

Also, for "Sokidan", it's to prevent the confusion English dubs had between "Spirit Ball" and 'Spirit Bomb". And technically, every ki blast is a "spirit ball". "Sokidan" roughly translated to "spinning ki bullet", as I understand it, and I prefer that idea, as well as the sound of Sokidan.

Fair enough. Thanks for answering my question.
