    I've often wondered how many foreign films/tv include Zako scenes that none-English speakers have never seen or heard of. True, there is a slow steady stream of foreign productions found, but considering the size of this planet and the amount of different languages in it, I'm sure there are plenty we haven't found yet.

    Think about countries like China, Hong Kong, Korea and Japan. The only movies and series' most of us have heard of are the 5% that get international distribution.

    So, does anyone speak other languages on this board?
    What are KEYWORDS in other languages.
    We can help each other search the internet in other languages

    --------------------------

    ENGLISH
    -Zako
    -(female) Mooks
    -(female) Goons
    -Henchgirls
    -Henchwomen
    -Henchabebs

    JAPANESE
    女性の戦闘員 (female combatant)

    -----------------------

    The German term for "Henchwoman" is "Schergin" (plural: "Scherginnen").

    Well, in Japanese it is usually
    女ザコ (female zako)
    敵女 (enemy female)

    In Chinese it is
    女杂鱼 (female zako)
    女杂兵 (female minion)

    I speak spanish (1st lang)

    -Mujeres secuaces
    -Subordinadas (minions)

    Actually, there are not many words to describe Zako's in spanish (we tend to call them by their japanese/english names) :/ I'll do a small research and edit.

    In English it is a "cannon meat". Or cannon fodder as you speaking.

    Googling these other words for Zako brings me back to this thread. They're very uncommon words.
