    Information has been scattered in past 2chan threads so I compiled them here, for future reference :)

    マクス
    "Makusu/Max"- Maxwell
    * Pretty self explanatory


    グラ爺
    "Gura-jii/Old man Grah" - Grahdens
    * Pretty self explanatory


    ござる
    "Gozaru" - Mifune
    * "Gozaru" is the honorific of "aru" and "iru", and was widely used from the Muromachi era to the Edo era. Nowadays, people just go with "Gozaimasu". Refers to popular media about the edo era, etc. letting samurais abuse the word (i.e. Rurouni Kenshin)


    ジャガイモ
    "Jagaimo/Potato" - Lugina
    * Refers to the shape of his head and the potatoes rocks floating around him


    雷鳥、害鳥
    "Raichou/Thunder bird, Gaichou/bad bird" - Ziz
    * Raichou is self explanatory. Gaichou is a pun on Raichou. The kanji or gai means bad, harmful etc.)


    社長
    "Shacho/Company President" - Douglas
    * His Japanese name is 機業神ダグラス. 機業 is read as Kigyou, and so is 起業 (company). His title Kigyoshin can therefore be interpreted as "God of the company" which led to J-netizens eventually calling him "Shacho/Company President"


    樹爺、ラピュタ
    "KiJii (or Jujii)/Old Tree, Laputa" - Altri
    * Looks like an old man, and the Castle in the Sky: Laputa


    ロー爺
    "Ro-jii/Old man Ro-" - Lorand
    * Pretty self explanatory


    ハゲ
    "Hage/Baldie" - Dean
    * Because they say that the headgear was worn on his 6* form to hide his receding hairline


    フェル(フェルネ)、海竜、鰻
    "Fel/Felne, Kairyuu/Sea Dragon, Unagi/Eel" - Felneus
    * For obvious reasons


    焼き鳥
    "Yakitori" - Phoenix
    * :)


    DVD⇒ブルーレイ
    "DVD, later to Blu-Ray" - Rameldria > Duelmex
    * DVD at 5*, Blu-ray at 6*


    BBA
    "Babaa/Granny" - Lemia
    * :(


    片足BBA
    "Kataashi Babaa/single-legged granny" - Emilia
    *.


    ホモ
    "Homo" - Aem
    * Because of his fondness of Will


    双子
    "Futago/Twins" - Il&Mina
    * For obvious reasons


    エロ天使
    "Ero-tenshi/erotic angel" - Ronel
    * Lewd angel


    先生
    "Sensei" - Zelban
    * Refers to him being Atro's sword instructor


    カニ
    "Kani/Crab" - SGX
    * Refers to Michele calling him a crab



    "Uma/Horse" - Bordebegia
    * Because.


    ライオン
    "Raion/Lion" - Leorone
    * For obvious reasons


    氷塔
    "Hyoutou/Ice Tower" - Oulu
    * Again, for obvious reasons


    盾爺
    "Tate-jii/Shield geezer" - Darvanshel
    * 盾 Tate means shield, self explanatory


    麒麟
    "Kirin" - Exvehl
    * See this


    女の子
    "Onna no ko/Girl" - Deemo and the Girl
    * Because people only look at the girl


    筆頭
    "Hittou/Leader" - Sodis
    * From the Lore: "Former Leader of the 12 Guardian of the Gods"


    パパス
    "Papasu" - Hogar
    * Because of his striking resemblance to the protagonist's father in Dragonquest 5 named Papasu
    [​IMG]


    幻海
    "Genkai" - Fiora
    * See Genkai from the manga/anime Yu Yu Hakusho


    ***************************************************
    3/4 update

    水王子
    "Mizuouji" - Arius
    * Lit. "water prince"


    アグ兄・アグニキ
    "Agu-nii / Aguniki" - Orwen
    * Agni's "oniisan", or older brother


    樹龍
    "Kiryuu" - Ragshelm
    * Lit. "tree dragon"


    盾子
    "Tateko" - Shera
    * Shield + "ko" which literally means child, but is also commonly used in female names


    八頭身
    "Hattoushin" - Borgeus
    * Lit. "body is 8-heads tall"---Refers to Iidor's 6 star evo looking like it's got weird head-body proportion. Pun on the 2chan ascii art character "Hattoushin Mona-" (see below). Hattoushin is also widely used on Captain Tsubasa memes and jokes.

                         (_/

    * captain tsubasa
    [​IMG]


    ビッチ姫
    "Bicchi hime" - Priscella
    * Lit. "bi+ch princess". Only a small number of angry wotas users refer to her with this, though; they were all excited when they saw her unit art and design but got utterly disappointed when they read the lore and just dismissed her as "2nd hand goods from Arus"


    ふなっしー・さしこ
    "Funassyi-" or "Sashiko" - Rosetta
    * Due to her uncanny resemblance to the ultra popular Japanese mascot, Funassyi (see the dots below the eyes and shape of the head). And some 2chan users find her art "ugly", thus referencing her to AKB48's "ugly" member, Rino Sashihara a.k.a. Sashiko

    虎子
    "Torako /lit. Baby Tiger" - Tora
    * pun on her name

    脱法兄妹
    "Dappou Kyoudai /Law evading brother/sister" - Claire & Kurt
    * The "Kompu-gacha" fiasco was actually a much bigger thing than people here expected (to give an idea how big of an issue it was, 1 thread in 2chan is 1,000 responses long. BF threads normally take 1 whole day to fill up. When someone brought up the "Kompu-gacha" law, threads progressed at 5-10 minutes/thread, and was filled with rage) It was blown out of proportion on the internet upon release, and ultimately led to the devs updating the ES 8 hours later, and prompted Takahashi to issue a formal apology at the beginning of the Nico Live last Feb.


    ***************************************************
    5/3 update


    "Mori/Forest" - Tree
    Ki-jii/Laputa is now called Mori, thanks to his upcoming 7* evo

    赤頭巾
    "Akazukin/Red riding hood" - Ciara

    カボチャ
    "Kabocha/Pumpkin" - Semira



    Will add more as we go along---

    Ah, Genkai. Yeah I can definitely see why that's Fiora's nickname.
