ゴロ?

Post by Disco » Sun 07.05.2009 10:47 pm

What does "goro"mean? I've been playing ゼルダの伝説:ムジュラの仮面, and the Gorons say "ゴロ" at the end of everything. Is that something that was made up for the goron race in that game, or is it something else?

It was made up. Probably related to ごろごろ or ころころ, both of which are sound effects for something rolling.

Here's another part that might help:

In manga and such, cats will also often end their sentences in "にゃ~" (the sounds a cat (にゃんこ) often makes)

A lot of anime/manga/game characters have this trait of appending some nonsense word to the end of every sentence. In the anime "Hoshi no Kirby", King Dedede ends every sentence with "zoi". Why? I dunno, he just does.

The most famous one is probably Naruto and his "dattebayo".
