Yes, I checked my SMA4 Player's Guide to confirm. -- Booster

Bill Blaster!?[edit]

How do we know that these are Bill Blasters, or even species at all? Just because they look similar doesn't mean they're the same thing.

Super Mario Sunshine[edit]

Question.svg This talk page or section has a conflict or a question that needs to be answered. Please try to help and resolve the issue by leaving a comment.

That section looks very out-of-place, as what it describes is only related in that it is a machine that makes fire. Granted, most enemies in Sunshine were weird (due to being made from goop), but these are pretty clearly full constructs that are not intended to be the same thing. Any proof of them being intended as such? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 18:07, 7 March 2018 (EST)

Don't know, I doubt they are the same. There is no reference included within the section, either. I don't have access to the Prima guide, but maybe someone who does can see if they are referred to in it. PumpkinheadGoomba.png Spooky Mario Fan MK8DX Dry Bones Icon.png 15:17, August 13, 2019 (EDT)
The name Burner only started showing up in Super Mario Maker, so I doubt the Burner name will be in there. Even then, Prima probably called them "Heat-based destruction generator that hurts Mario for three points of damage and has fiery fury". TheDarkStar MLBISBJJDarkStar.png 15:22, August 13, 2019 (EDT)
Burners were previously referred to as "Rocket Engines" and "flamethrowers", so one of those names could have been used. PumpkinheadGoomba.png Spooky Mario Fan MK8DX Dry Bones Icon.png 15:29, August 13, 2019 (EDT)
The ones from Sunshine are different, as the flames can actually be put out here (and yes, I know that the ones from 6-Tower in New Super Scripted Bros. 2 can be put out by switches). "Rocket Engine" wouldn't really fit it, but Prima probably used it anyway (that's what caused the whole Missile Bill debacle). "Flamethrower" fits better, but Prima does not know a good name when they see it. TheDarkStar MLBISBJJDarkStar.png 15:37, August 13, 2019 (EDT)
They don't really fit anywhere else, tbh. Functionally, it's the same as a regular Burner, it just looks different (and water interacting with returning obstacles/enemies is a common thing in Sunshine, so). Nintendo Power does not give a name, btw. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:05, August 13, 2019 (EDT)
How is it the same? This acts like a stovetop and only loses its flame if sprayed, iirc. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 21:29, August 13, 2019 (EDT)
