2444 - Densetsu no Stafy - Taiketsu! Dire Kaizokudan
A source of 'Dire'?

I'd like to the 'Dile'.
Because that origin is a crocodile.

While your "(Croco)Dile" argument sounds interesting, the problem is that the "Kaizokudan" ("Pirate Squad") guys don't look like crocodiles to me :P

On the other hand the "Dire" english adjective is applied to something that causes fear, dread or terror, and makes sense when used to designate a pirate squad.

I contact Nintendo and have an answer.

Ok fuzzball, you are right then. So the "Pirate Squad" leader is a character named "Dile" because it resembles a crocodile.

Thanks for taking the effort to contact Nintendo on this (Wow!)

I wonder how many titles contain wronly romanized words like this.

Keep the good job.
