According to the article, Bionkinton is a "shy turtle hiding inside a cloud". However, according to the Super Mario Land manual, "nobody has ever seen what he looks like". I know that the popular Mario site The Mushroom Kingdom says that he's a turtle (in their Mariopedia[1]), but is there any canonical evidence that we know what he is? Like something in those Game Boy comics or maybe some kind of cutscene you get after beating him? --YellowYoshi398 14:25, 17 December 2006 (EST)

He pops out a few times, revealing a shell and a hand.Knife (talk)

Oh, thanks! That's pretty cool. --YellowYoshi398 15:43, 17 December 2006 (EST)
Lakitu? Could it be Lakitu? Like Chibibo is Goomba? Paper Jorge
Chibibos look a little more like Goombas than Biokinton does to Lakitu... But then again, the fact that he's a turtle that rides a cloud is interesting... --YellowYoshi398 15:50, 17 December 2006 (EST)

Chibibos ARE Goombas, but as a result of bad translation. Bionkinton is not a translation of Lakitu but may be the name of a specific Lakitu character. I would merge them but the others insist that they are completly different.Knife (talk)

I agree with them. It is a pretty neat coincidence, though... --YellowYoshi398 16:25, 17 December 2006 (EST)

After defeating him, does he show his face? 3dhammer.gif 3D, {{{1}}} 3dhammer.gif

Nope. I just got done playing all the way through Super Mario Land to see the hand and shell (which I, for some reason, never got to see), and he just explodes like any other boss. --YellowYoshi398 18:03, 17 December 2006 (EST)
Huh? Hand and shell? 3dhammer.gif 3D, {{{1}}} 3dhammer.gif

Oh, and about me never getting to see the shell and hand, what was up with that? Can you only see them in the hard mode? Do you have to leave him be for a little while? I kinda want to see it... --YellowYoshi398 18:11, 17 December 2006 (EST)
You probably need to leave him be. I'll probably also get the game for Christmas, so I can check. 3dhammer.gif 3D, {{{1}}} 3dhammer.gif
I really have no idea then. I don't even have the game anymore but if you find something to disprove it, you may change the info.Knife (talk)
Well, we don't have to change any info because it was removed when the Biokinton and Bionkinton articles were merged (see below), so... Yeah. I guess it's still a mystery, even though a lot of people are saying he's a turtle... I'm pretty sure that the Mario Series Character Guide on Gamfaqs says it, too. --YellowYoshi398 20:48, 17 December 2006 (EST)
Something came over me, and I played Super Mario Land again... I gave Biokinton some time, and I still didn't see any hand or shell... I did, however, have another idea: does anybody have some kinda Super Mario Land player's guide? It might say something... --YellowYoshi398 20:28, 18 December 2006 (EST)

Biokinton vs. Bionkinton[edit]

I just noticed something: there's an article called "Bionkinton" that's about this exact same character! According to the Super Mario Land manual, it's spelled "Biokinton", the way this article spells it. What should we do with the other article? I'd take care of it myself... but I'm sorta new and don't exactly know what to do. --YellowYoshi398 15:48, 17 December 2006 (EST)

I think they should be merged, I'll get on it. -- Sir Grodus
