Royal title[edit]

The DK wiki says she's the queen MarioLover54 5:26 PM EST 1/7/2020

But do they have a source for this claim? If there's no official sources confirming this, then we can't say she's the queen instead of the princess. --Metalex123 (talk) 13:23, January 8, 2020 (EST)

But the majority of the sources I've seen call her the "Banana Fairy Queen" MarioLover54 (talk) 22:07, March 13, 2020 (EDT)

Can you list some of these sources? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:11, March 13, 2020 (EDT)
It turns out that the BradyGAMES guide calls her Banana Fairy Queen, and both it and the Versus Books guide use Fairy Queen for short, so the name is official. Normally, web content is a lower source for naming than a third-party guide; however, the website in question is a walkthrough from Nintendo Power Source, an online arm of Nintendo Power, so it can be considered a companion to the Nintendo Player's Guide. Given the circumstances, I'd be in favor of keeping it as Banana Fairy Princess, especially since it's also supported by a foreign name. Besides, it seems the most common name otherwise would be Fairy Queen, which is perhaps too succinct. That aside, I think the two other names listed for the character can possibly be trimmed from the article: Mrs. Fairy is just a term of endearment that Tiny came up on the spot in-game, and Banana Fairy probably comes from a snippet in the manual written from Cranky's point of view where he trying to hide the fact that he doesn't know what a Banana Fairy is (and it's not exactly incorrect to say that she's a Banana Fairy, it just most likely isn't meant to be her name). Basically, I'd rewrite the introduction to read: "The Banana Fairy Princess, also known as Banana Fairy Queen or Fairy Queen," and describe her as a monarch or leader instead of princess. Does this all sound good, or would a different course of action be preferred? LinkTheLefty (talk) 21:25, April 8, 2020 (EDT)
Sounds about right at a casual glance, hoping more input is given. --ExdeathIcon.png Lord G. matters. ExdeathIcon.png 22:43, April 8, 2020 (EDT)
