So, this seems to be a confusing topic. In the earlier Mario Party games, namely the first two, Wario's Japanese voiceover of "Oh my, God!" was changed for the other regional releases. Here's the kicker, many people hear Wario say "D'oh, I missed!" Problem is, Wario's actually speaking German and exclaiming "So ein mist!" Source? Wario's VA at the time: Thomas Spindler.


Translated quote:
"This is 100% correct. Wario speaks German: he says (or rather, *I* say) 'So ein Mist!' The recording was done in a studio of the former Nintendo head office in Kyoto (not the new Nintendo premises in Kamitobaguchi), under the direction of Mr. Takashi Tezuka. Back then, I worked on the script for another Nintendo project with my French friend and colleague Julien Bardakoff (who voiced Toad/Kinopio). My company T.S. Word Co.Ltd. also translated and adjusted the German script for Star Fox which can be verified in the credits of Star Fox 64. The concept behind Wario was that of a German character and those responsible for the voice-overs at Nintendo back then intended him to speak German. I hope that this resolves the issue once and for all."
While it's understandable that many people (which included me) confuse the phrase as "D'oh, I missed!" or something similar, if you listen closely, you can hear:
  • The "S" at the start.
  • The "n" after the "I".
  • The "t" at the end.
This is apparently a confusing subject, so I'd like to hear what everyone else here thinks. Take this from a user who's partially deaf and has trouble hearing little things like this, yet I can hear this clearly.

Heh, I remember when you corrected me on this. It's definitely "So ein mist!" It has official confirmation, and I can clearly hear the "S", the "n" and the "t".

Regardless how many times I listen to it, I always hear "D'oh I missed".

I'm German, and he is definitely saying "So ein Mist!". The intonation perfectly matches the german phrase, particularly the "o" in "so". Plus, as was already said, there is an audible S and an N in there.

Everything I've ever believed in has been proven a lie.

Also, when Therunawayguys made their LP of Mario Party 4, Chugga pointed out that Peach says "D'oh I missed" when she loses. I don't hear it, but you can listen to it here.

It'll always be Doh I Missed to me and millions of others. Word of God be damned, Doh I Missed is funnier and more memorable.

It's the same voice clip as above. The background music makes it difficult to distinguish exactly what he's saying, which of course is a factor in this.
