What is this, anyway?[edit]

Since it has pupils and stuff, is it an enemy?Knife (talk) 19:04, 28 July 2007 (EDT)

Well, a lot of things have eyes....like eveything in Double Dash....so not really. ♥♪!? 19:07, 28 July 2007 (EDT)

Who changed the name? -Mariosonic444 Their english name is Pushy Walls! Idiots!

Do you have a source Goomba's Shoe15 (talk)
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) BbQbf6g.png 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?
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Mariosonic444 (talk).

they didn't unless you have a source that proves pushy wall is the English name we use the Japanese name same goes for flimp Goomba's Shoe15 (talk)

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. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)

Look in Super Mario Galaxy 2 Game Guide. User:Mariosonic444

Prima is a last ditch thing and we don't trust it too much. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)
I've already checked that a number of times, and I never once found that they were given an official name within...

it's not a last ditch thing, since it actually takes priority over non-english names (MarioWiki:Naming), but if Phoenix is right about the guide not providing an official name, then it doesn't really matter. they're pretty unreliable, anyway. Turboo 20:41, 14 May 2011 (EDT)
So wait, you don't care if your account is banned for being rude? - 2257(Talk) BbQbf6g.png 20:32, 14 May 2011 (EDT)
this wikis view on Prima is confusing Goomba's Shoe15 (talk)
It's not, really. Read any Prima guide yourself and you'll see what I mean. I mean, they listed Chain Chomps as enemies in Moonview Highway. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)

No it's still confusing to say that it is the official source and yet that the same time say your official Nintendo source is wrong when they rename enemies Goomba's Shoe15 (talk)

Try looking here if you haven't already...

The SMG2 Prima Game Guide didn't mention them. The SMG Prima Guide called them "Sliding Stones". PikaSamus (talk)

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)

I cant scan it but it says this: There are three Sliding Stones in the mountain's face that push Mario onto shrinking platforms.PikaSamus (talk)

Should we rename the images to sliding stones then?--Vommack 12:16, 19 June 2012 (EDT)

Should we change the name to "Bomp"? I remember getting a scrap in Paper Mario: Sticker Star with one of these guys and it said "Bomp"... I think that's the official name for it. Smithuser (talk)

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) Happy Holidays! 18:54, 16 December 2012 (EST)

Paper Mario: Sticker Star name[edit]

I'm reading the official guide to the game and it says that their names for this game are Bomps. Should this be included in the article anywhere? YoshiHeadSSBU.png Tails777 Talk to me!SSBUStockIcon - Robin.png

Super Mario 64[edit]

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".

Still has more reason to have its own article than Stinky Kong. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 06:18, 25 December 2017 (EST)
