It’s little known, but there is a term for victory poses in Japanese language. It’s called the Guts Pose and the popularity of it has permeated most of society, including games. The story of how this came to be is long and strange, but is guaranteed to be entertaining and eye opening. Just make sure to use the term yourself and see if it can gain a foothold into the English speaking world!

I've lived more of my life in Japan than anyplace else. I like to share stories about the cool things people outside of Japan want to learn about. I also like to translate lost books and other game info and present them to an English audience.
