One of the many animes dubbed by [[FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids]]. The Spanish and Latin Americans also got a translation, and had the Japanese original dubbed in Spanish with only a bit of CulturalTranslation and pretty decent casts. Both the [=4Kids=] dub and a local language dub were shown in the Philippines, leading to inevitable comparisons and some confusion.

* GratiousEnglish: Being the American of the group, it's a given that Chocolove would do this. [[SurprisinglyGoodEnglish It's actually pretty good]], and [[Creator/MotokoKumai Motoko Kumai's]] delivery makes it sound oddly adorable.

** Most of our [[KidHero Kid Heroes]] are this, being cute and attractive teenagers with amazing shamanic powers.



* GratuitousSpanish: Peyote, who keeps saying "¡Eres Correcto!". This literally transtales to "You are correct!", but in spanish the expression would imply an overly attatchment to correctness, or following rules. The correct expression would be "¡Estás en lo correcto!" (You're on the right assumption) or "¡Es correcto!" (That's correct).

Added DiffLines:

** An example that was induced by the [[{{Bowdlerise}} Bowdlerisation]] of the English manga: To avoid accusations of racism, they readjusted Chocolove's face so he didn't have big lips anymore. Sounds fair, but when you see the edited manga, you'll notice how ''weird'' his face looks without them. His face just ends up stretching and contorting in ways that range from odd to downright disgusting.
** The anime occasionally had this too, but not much worse than the manga. Plus, this was animation during the the 2000s, so it's kind of expected.

''Shaman King'' takes place in a world not unlike our own. Except in this world, some people can see spirits, and join with them to gain new powers.

The story focuses on Yoh Asakura, a [[BrilliantButLazy seemingly extremely lazy]] shaman who's partnered with the [[OlderSidekick samurai Amidamaru]]. Along the way, he meets up with Manta Oyamada (Morty in the dub), a studious and otherwise OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent who can see ghosts, and who soon becomes Yoh's best friend; Tao Ren (Lenny), a Chinese PerpetualFrowner who was TheLancer in every way; Horohoro (Trey Racer), a snowboarder and ''the'' token Ainu; Ryu/Ryo, a delinquent turned Master of the Wooden Sword; Lyserg Diethel, who's looking for his family's killer; and Chocolove (Joco) [=McDonnell=], a reformed gangster who wants to save the world with stand-up comedy. And then there's Anna Kyouyama: Yoh's fiancee, a bit of an EducationMama, who [[{{Tsundere}} actually cares much more than she lets on]].

The team is participating in the Shaman Fight, in which shamans from around the world fight for the right to merge with the CrystalDragonJesus.

* FunnyBackgroundEvent: During the two-volume flashback to Yoh's past, we repeatedly see a number of kids playing with tops very... [[SeriousBusiness enthusiastically]]. The between-chapters character profiles explain who these kids are: they sound ''very'' much like they'd belong in a MerchandiseDriven SeriousBusiness anime [[{{Beyblade}} about tops]].
