Official Spelling[edit]

If this is the name used by the game, shouldn't it be the one that we use? MarioWiki:Naming even says that the game takes priority over the manual. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 21:57, 11 July 2017 (EDT)
Is "repellant" a misspelling though? If it is, then the correct spelling should take priority. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 22:00, 11 July 2017 (EDT)

I'm not sure if this form of spelling is consistent throughout the game. Like, in the item selection screen just before you use an item, does it still say "Boo Repellant"? BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 22:08, 11 July 2017 (EDT)
That doesn't show the name of the item, the only other time it shows is the explanation for it, where it is also spelled with an A. . Also in the script for MPIQ, if it asks about an item:

This Again[edit]

It's been moved and reverted a few times but it should still have its actual name as the page title.
