Identifiers[edit]

The identifiers to these two subjects make no sense. Neither of them truly fit the mold of an "enemy" or a "boss," and both are more somewhere in-between, making the current ones extremely subjective at best. Furthermore, only the Snifits are actually referred to as "Apprentice" in battle; the Terrapin is called "Torte," with "apprentice" being the generic moniker Chef Torte gives him outside of battle. Lastly, this is not how people would remember the distinction between the two when looking at the links on an unfilled search bar, and practical differentiation is what matters in an identifier. Therefore, these should either be changed to "Apprentice (Snifit)" and "Apprentice (Torte)/Apprentice (Terrapin)" or simply "Apprentice" and "Chef Torte's apprentice."

I agree with moving to the Snifit and Torte identifiers - the former (mostly) become Snifits, and the latter is closer to how they're identified in the Japanese version (ie. they are "Tortes" but the chef himself is "Chef Torte") as well as in battle.

I also agree with moving the two apprentices to Apprentice (Snfift) and Apprentice (Torte) as both Terrapin and the Snifits can be considered enemies with Chef Tort commonly referring his apprentice as simply Torte. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 7:01 January 24 2019 (EST)
I would support changing the identifiers. --FlameChompNSMBW.pngTheFlameChomp (talk) 07:28, 24 January 2019 (EST)
I, too, would support changing the identifiers only because of the exception we previously established with Slim (Flopside) and Slim (Pixl). MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 07:58, 24 January 2019 (EST)
I'd support a rename. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 08:28, 24 January 2019 (EST)
