I noticed that we have a red link for the fire-shooting Archies. Beyond the fact that the game seems to give them the same name (I think?), they also have very little differences besides shooting or not shooting fire. I'm feeling like the red link is a bit unnecessary and maybe we should just say 'hey, they shoot fire sometimes too.' Thoughts? Information I'm missing? Fawfulfury65

The name stems from the (official) Prima guide, which does distinguish between the two Archies: the regular one is "Archy", and the fire-breathing one is "Archy (fire)", and that is a literal transcription. Beyond the odd name, I'd support giving the fire variant an article, since it looks and acts different from a regular Archy. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 14:05, 19 September 2016 (EDT)
Ah, okay. If the official guide separates them like that, I don't think it's so bad. Honestly, just from that I don't really mind having an article for the fire Archies. Fawfulfury65
