Merge with Bill Blaster[edit]

This is just the normal Bill Blaster. It has a different name, but enemies like Goby and The Big Boo are treated as Cheep Cheeps and Boos respectively, because they are the same thing and so is this MLSSBMTashrooba.pngVOIDTHIS (talk)MLSSBMShroobRex.png 00:26, 8 July 2018 (CEST)

No, these seem to have a different Japanese name. And are sapient. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 18:30, 7 July 2018 (EDT)
There was a split proposal here. Basically, in-game battles treat the Blaster as a moving enemy; additionally, if you look closely at its attacks, it shoots out multiple types of Bullet Bills, which no other Bill Blaster has done to date. And as mentioned, different Japanese names unlike the aforementioned examples. LinkTheLefty (talk) 18:35, 7 July 2018 (EDT)

Just to be clear, if anyone can see if this scan gives Bill Blaster a particular Japanese name, please say so. I suppose someone could ask Mister Wu about ESMB's take on the object... Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 18:37, 7 July 2018 (EDT)
Bill Blaster and the Star are both sort of clip art on that page and aren't mentioned at all, but Encyclopedia Super Mario Bros. consistently labels it 「キラー砲台」 (Killer Hōdai) throughout various object tables. LinkTheLefty (talk) 08:00, 8 July 2018 (EDT)
Seeing as this was answered, I'll remove the talk template. rollerC (talk) 01:27, 3 August 2018 (EDT)
I may be late but, yeah they have the same appearance, but act differently and have a different Japanese name. (same goes for Flamer Guys and Pyro Guys, and PM Spear Guys and Yoshi's Island ones) --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 06:42, 18 October 2018 (EDT)
Ps:So i'm opposing the merge. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 12:59, 18 October 2018 (EDT)
