* DeaderThanDisco: Once one of the most popular dub producers, 4Kids fell into this trope after the massive backlash from their dub of ''Manga/OnePiece''. That backlash permanently stained the company's reputation, they lost most of their licenses, and they would later file for bankruptcy.

* HamAndCheese: It's generally agreed that while their localization can be criticized for massive censorship and editing, the voice acting itself in their dubs tend to be top quality. In fact, 4Kids is how Creator/DanGreen got a lot of fan recognition. Also help to note that the voice actors were paid higher than the typical union rates for anime voice work.

* SnarkBait: Good luck finding somebody who has any ''positive'' things to say about 4Kids (with the notable exception of their voice actors, who they treated quite well).
** This usually doesn't extend to their voice actors since they were just reading scripts, and some, like Dan Green, Eric Stuart, Veronica Taylor, and Sean Schemmel are still well respected (for Schemmel, it helps that he went to Funimation afterwards).

** [[BrokenBase Depending on who you ask]], the dubs of ''Pokémon'' and ''Shaman King'' are also considered good.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Pretty much any [[{{Macekre}} dub]] 4Kids made.
** Ironically, when 4Kids lost the rights to dub the ''Pokémon'' anime, many fans were outraged at the new dub by The Pokémon Company USA and wanted 4Kids to continue the dub.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: [=4Kids=] did release uncut [=DVDs=] of ''Anime/YuGiOh'' in late 2004/early 2005, but only got through the first nine episodes. They put these on their Website/YouTube channel, [[ScrewedByTheLawyers but had to take the subbed versions down since ADK didn't renew their contract with Yugi's Japanese voice actor]]. They also had subbed ''Anime/SonicX'' episodes on their [=YouTube=] channel for some time.

* SuperlativeDubbing: ''Anime/UltimateMuscle'' and ''VideoGame/DinosaurKing'' are considered to be some of the only legitimately good dubs to come out of 4Kids.
** Although some of the edits made to ''Pokémon'' and ''Shaman King'' were questionable, many still regard them as good dubs overall.

* MostAnnoyingSound:
** Some of the voices they give their characters can occasionally border on this trope (especially Sanji's from ''One Piece'', who sounds like a Brooklyn gangster with really bad nasal problems).
** A lot of the bombastic music that [[LullDestruction constantly plays]] in most of their dubs can get ridiculous after a while.



* UnacceptableTargets: The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xfJuJrqFhXM 4Kids voice actors singing the American national anthem REALLY badly and as their respective characters]]. The less said, the better.
