I been calling this rank by it's name for years now; however, I actually never knew what the "g" in g-rank stood for. The topic of this didn't come up until one of my friends mentioned it. I tried googling, but nothing substantial came up. I was wondering if any of you guys knew. It would help ease my concern Yes by vort

I think it just means Capcom likes the letter, I don't think it officially stands for anything, other than "Guild" or "God" or whatever else the user wants to call it. Probably wrong though, someone feel free to correct me.

G means Gee as in "Gee, this is tough bananas."

True story.

Seriously though, I've been googling and it seems G is just a letter that the Japanese like to use to indicate that something is better. Like C < B < A < S in some Korean games. No idea if it's actually true.

Because G is just the 3rd coolest letter of the English Latin Alphabet. X and Z were already taken.

^ I... I Gan't Gtop Gatching....

G is a ranking system. Doesn't really stand for anything.. Usually in japan it's used to indicate an Upgraded or Better Version of something.

Actually the G in GB stands for Giga, which means 1 billion (1.000.000.000).
