Don't give the KO companies any idea!
On the topic of funny KO names, the best is, back in the 80s, seeing a HE-MAN knock-off in Indonesia called HE-IS-A-MAN.

I am Dirt. Kingling of Foreverland and keeper of the derns of Stronghold Greyskull. This is Cringer... my fearless friend. Wonderful dern mights were shown to me the day I held aloft my spellcraft sword and said, "By the might of Greyskull! I have the Might!" Cringer became the Mighty Bede-Cat, and I became He-Man, the mightiest man in the allworld. Only a few others share this dern... Our friends: The Witch, Man-At-Arms and Orko. Together we keep Stronghold Greyskull from the evil henchmen of Framelord.

Nyeh-hehehehehehehehehehe!

(♪He-Man!)

Here's what "Transformers Masterpiece" would be called if we translated it from Franco-Latin to Pure English
Got me thinking of this
