Norwegian King of Names

Picture by Graboids

The Norwegian King of Names (and Cartoons)
is considered by most TDards to be the greatest fictional character on the podcast and has voice similar to that of James Mason. The King has appeared on TalkRadar 49 and later on the 2009 Christmas Special where the segment is replayed. If it wasn't for the King of Norway declining a 10 year old boy's request of changing his name to Sonic X, 5 minutes of pure comedy gold might not have happened. The King of Norway never goes anywhere without a soundboard full of magic sound effects. He uses these sound effects to change the names of things.

Things that were Renamed by the King:

  • Minneapolis - Bonertown
  • Mikel Reparaz - Liu Kang Reparaz (After being denied the name "47")
  • Wolverine - Catboy
  • Shane Patterson - Roxas Reparaz
  • Brett Elston - K.K. Slider (After being denied the name "Brett Belmont")
  • The Royal Beast - Sir Lion of Tiger
  • Weiss (The floating book from Nier) - Pierce Brosnan
  • Final Fantasy VI - pimpleface
  • Mega Man II renamed to Buttsman
  • Henry Gilbert - Super Mario 3 - "I dub thee Hank!"
  • Command & Conquer Red Alert - "David Hasselhoff"
  • Gabriel Knight - Gabriel Gout
  • Bubble Bobble - Baron von Blubbest
  • Starcraft - "I dub thee a game I have yet to play."
  • Psychonauts - "The Schafer Schafer"
  • Earthbound - Mother 4
  • Planetside - Sony Online Entertainment now calling Blizzard.
  • Forum user Johnny Applesperm - Piss Shittilis
  • Duke Lombardi - Lord Duke the Baron

The King and Duke Lombardi can not speak to each other for unknown reasons. Believe it or not, but the King can turn a random beer bottle into a Rocket Ship, as well as having a lion that wears a crown, refered to as "The Royal Beast"

The King made his triumphant return in TalkRadar 99, and reappeared in TalkRadar 110. The King fniished the 6 hour epic of Talkradar 100 by renaming the entire GamesRadar staff.

TalkRadar Clip 'o the Week: The Norwegian King of Names

Words: Chris Antista, GamesRadar US

By far, the most popular TalkRadar bit of all time. Unfortunately, it’s hard to bring The Good King back for any other reason, since this improvised piece relates to a very specific, extremely bizarre news story that nobody remembers.

So, some dumbass kid in Norway wanted to change his name to “Sonic X,” after some dumbass hedgehog that used to star in great games. Whereas here in the states such a query would’ve been abruptly met with a “No.” or “Shut up” from a loving parent or guardian, Norwegian policy apparently dictates that only the KING OF GODDAMNED NORWAY is fit to yay or nay the idiotic requests of its young subjects. No seriously, this happened! We couldn’t help but envision a bored, powerless monarch with nothing better to do than shoot down the asinine whims of children and things just got funnier from there…

Brett: News!

Chris:I have news. Speaking of uh politics, and you know we love doing this, this is one of my favorite stories, possibly of the entire podcast. uh, Norwegian king denies a child his request of having his name changed to Sonic X. There is some many things about this- no NOOO

Mikel: You'll thank me later son

Chris: His name "Krister" uh, how do you say that in Norwaygian?

Shane: I don't know

Mikel: I think it's pronounced "chhgchhchg"

Chris: Requested to have his name changed to Sonic X, not Sonic, not Sonic EX, Sonic, big capital X

Shane: Sonic Ten? (As in roman numeral X)

Chris: His parents never got back to him, he's like, "mom, dad, didn't you mail my letter?" and it's like "oooh, ok it's your birthday." Mail the letter off. The king responds, denies his request, and I love the idea. We saw that Disney cartoon Education for Death. Appealing to your king to change your name... seems incredibly weird!

King: Oh yes, what? Brett Elston? You want to be called what? Brett Belmont? Denied!

King: Yes. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea...

Mikel: God dammit, why don't you get the fucking gong?

King: We cancelled it, request a name Shane Patterson from a video game

Brett: Sound like fuckin... sounds like fuckin wheezydoor

King: Let me have this

Shane: Roxas

King: Roxas? The king considers Roxas

Shane: Roxas Reparaz?
