Who changed the name? -Mariosonic444 Their english name is Pushy Walls! Idiots!
- Did you know that one of the most efficient ways of getting banned from editing this website is to be rude to people? It's true! - 2257(Talk) 20:27, 14 May 2011 (EDT)
I dont care, its pretty idiotic to change the english name to the japenese, this also happened to Flimps, no, i dont have a source, but why would someone name it pushy walls in the first place?

- I think Pushy Wall was a conjectural name, so we named the article like that until we found an official name, so we moved it and kept the name we first used for English speakers. Ray Trace(T|C)
Look in Super Mario Galaxy 2 Game Guide. User:Mariosonic444
- I've already checked that a number of times, and I never once found that they were given an official name within...
- So wait, you don't care if your account is banned for being rude? - 2257(Talk) 20:32, 14 May 2011 (EDT)
- this wikis view on Prima is confusing Goomba's Shoe15 (talk)
- Try looking here if you haven't already...
- If you can scan the part of the guide that calls them that, than the name can be changed since that Prima guide would be official Goomba's Shoe15 (talk)
Should we rename the images to sliding stones then?--Vommack 12:16, 19 June 2012 (EDT)
- That would only be the official name for Sticker Star. The SM64 and SMG appearances are all official names as "Sliding Stone". I think the best thing to do here is make a note of the other name in the intro (remember to bolden the word Bomp and create a redirect). Also, mention it in the relevant section.
- Now, wait a moment. From what I'm understanding, Bomp is a name used in-game. That gives it way more priority over a Prima Guide name like Sliding Stone. Even if they were on the same level, Bomp is the more recent name, and each name was only used once (they are unnamed in-game in Super Mario 64, with the Nintendo Power guide indirectly calling them "Pushy Walls"). -- 1337star (Mailbox SP) 18:54, 16 December 2012 (EST)
Paper Mario: Sticker Star name
Super Mario 64
For reference, Encyclopedia Super Mario Bros. has a different (though similar) name for the Super Mario 64 version and classifies it as an object rather than an enemy. It also groups the eyeless Tick Tock Clock wall together with the Whomp's Fortress wall, with both being represented in accompanying pictures. Bomp's appearance in Super Mario Galaxy 2's Throwback Galaxy indicates they're one and the same, however. LinkTheLefty (talk) 22:58, 23 December 2017 (EST)
- Still, it could be a case like Dust Man and Bucketman, which you suggested we split both separate on the Bin discussion. "Bumper Thud" seems like a conglomeration of "Bumper" and Thwomp, with a similar situation for Tox Box. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 23:38, 23 December 2017 (EST)
- Splitting the Bin enemy further is just one solution to the multiple name issue I threw out there - if it splits from the Bin object as a single article instead of two, there is still a precedent to use the original name on Game Boy Donkey Kong articles and the recent name on Mario vs. Donkey Kong articles. I do agree that Bomp seems to be in a similar situation to Tox Box, given the size and design difference as well. For what it's worth, though, the internal name for Tox Box in both Super Mario 64 DS and Super Mario Galaxy refers to it as "Onimasu" and not "Onimasukun" or "Onimasudon".
