I do so the correct way, "Grah-dee-us." As confirmed by the announcer in IV.

Everyone else seems to say Graw-dee-us or Gray-dee-us though.

You are correct. The original name is of course Japanese pronunciation and it basically is

goo rah di usu

Well, if you wanna' play it that way, the announcer in Gradius Gaiden pronounces it as "gruh-dee-us," with the first two syllables pronounced it quick succession: "grudee-us."

I pronounce it "graa-dee-us" myself.
