What are some dialogue mistakes in video games that people have reacted to improperly?

Should be: I fell asleep!

As a kid, the yoshi's story ending theme always sounded like to me that the Yoshies were calling you an......well, you'll see what I mean, just skip half way to the song.

No, I think I understand quite well how terrible older game localization can be.

There's another name in Zelda II, bagu. This means "bug" in Japanese. Inside joke, maybe?

Also, I think the Yoshi's are saying "nin-TEEEEN-do".

I honestly dont get why so many people overreact with this. The dude is telling you his name is Error, iirc you have to go back to him later in the game someone tells you to go speak to Error or something along those lines. If you didnt learn at that time that his name was Error you wouldn't know to go back to him later. Its that simple. I wish people would just get over it and stop acting like its some kinda of big mystery.

The real mistranslation was the guy called Bagu. It should have been Bug. Then I AM ERROR would've made more sense.
