There's a fighting game with the title of Tongue of the Fatman. It was later ported to the Megadrive/Genesis as Slaughter Sport. The original North American box art is also hilariously bizarre:

I assume it's just that it sounds stupid; not that there's anything inappropriate about it.

As noted by the critic in his review, in hindsight, download, for the TG16.

How about Wally Bear and the NO! Gang?

Yes, there's an exclamation point in the middle of the title on the box. Look very closely: http://atarihq.com/tsr/nes/wally.html

Gaiares appears in enough sources for me to say it exists:

http://www.hardcoregaming101.net/gaiares/
http://www.defunctgames.com/commercialb ... g-part-two
https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/ ... me/Gaiares

If you mean it's nonsense to say the name is bad, that's an opinion. The name is hard to sound out, & the official pronunciation sounds silly.

"Who are us? Guy are us?"
"Right."
"No, no, who are us?"
"Guy are us."
"Ugh! I don't give a dern!"
"Oh! That's our shortstop!"

I own the original cart and case. That's sufficient proof for me that it exists. :)

I've always pronounced the name like "guy-res" or "guy-ris."
