Insect Glaive and Charge Blade as Game Breakers.

Like most weapons added in newer MH games, IG and CB are phenomenally useful even in the hands of inexperienced players. Especially the Glaive with its wide multihit-attacks, Super Armor on almost all attacks (with the triple-up-buff, that is), built-in medium Earplugs (again, thanks to the triple-up-buff) and the pole-vault which makes Glaives the only weapons capable of mounting no matter the terrain.

And like the Switch Axe in MH3, the Charge Blade has the distinction of being a weapon with one of the most fully completed movesets of all time, rivaling Bowguns in their flexibility.

Of course, they're not "perfect" weapons (no weapon in MH is, we all know that this series is built on Nintendo Hardness), and it looks like the Charge Blade will get a rebalance overhaul in MHX (without nerfing it too much), so time will tell if their status as Game Breakers will change in future MH-games — but still, as of now IG and CB are the go-to weapons in MH4U if you want to tear everything apart while looking good doing so.

Anyone disagreeing here? I'm open to discussion. Just wanted to add more insight here to my reasoning of including IG and CB under the Game Breaker tab, it's kind of a big issue (we all know how heated debates about what does and does not count as game-breaking can become).

Hello,

I'm... rather surprised by Perelandra's latest additions in Memetic Mutation. Is there a source or something showing that the "Je suis monté" sentence became a meme? Same for the "Pardon..." which sounds more like a mean jab directed at french players that an actual meme (I could write the same entry by replacing it with "Sorry...", it wouldn't make it true or a meme). In short: are those sentence becoming memes factually correct? If no, I think they should be removed.

I'll be damned. The "Je suis monté" does seem to have reached a memetic status (albeit quite small from what I can see - also, may be related to "Je suis Charlie"). There is definitly less evidence regarding "Pardon..." though.

The part about Woolseyism is false. Japanese versions also call the mosters by their designated names (most of the time on the materials, but they also did that for mission names/descriptions) instead of just stating their name as "xxx subspecies". For example, Ivory Lagiacrus (as raised in the YMMV page) is literally known as "White Lagiacrus" in Japan.

You Could Always Edit It Yourself, you know.

I haven't played the japanese versions (and why would I? I don't understand the language at all) so I can't really comment on this, but if there's something wrong with that Woolseyism-paragraph, feel free to change it.
