    I mean if you install them via brazilian method, I understand that you can boot games from oher regions by booting Mocha and then launching the game, but I wonder if there's any risk installing them in HDD or NAND, japanese games the most.

    No risk at all.
    Some games won't work out of region without patching (like loadiine). For example sm3w jpn on usa/eur console

    No risk. Some games might need language patches depending on region eg. Nes remix pack. But no brick risk.
