Chill Bully?[edit]

Since the in-game mission title just calls it a Bully, and this is supported by at least one Japanese guide, should the name of the article be changed to "Bully (Snowman's Land)"? LinkTheLefty (talk) 21:15, 5 May 2015 (EDT)

The Nintendo Power Player's Guide actually uses both interchangeably, but since in-game "Bully" complies with Naming... LinkTheLefty (talk) 20:00, 8 May 2015 (EDT)
Are we sure "Bully" isn't just being used as a shortened form of "Chill Bully" or a generic blanket term for Bullies in general? This feels like moving Koopa Troopa to just "Koopa" or something... Binarystep (talk) 01:13, 9 May 2015 (EDT)
Why would Big Bully be directly named in a level title but not this one (considering the act of "chilling the Bully" is a clear contrast to "boiling the Big Bully" courses earlier)? That, and at least one Japanese guide generically uses the Bully term to refer to this Bully, suggesting that the Chill Bully is mainly an odd Nintendo Power invention. Naming makes this simple: go with what the game calls it. LinkTheLefty (talk) 13:30, 9 May 2015 (EDT)

Name?[edit]

Honestly, this probably should go under "Chill Bully." The game calls it "the Bully" as a generic name, exactly like how it refers to the Whomp King simply as "Whomp," Unagi as "the Eel", and Dorrie as "Swimming Beast in the Cavern." Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 10:20, 19 July 2017

I'm in support of it. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 21:22, 19 July 2017 (EDT)
In support of what? The current name or what I suggested? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 10:26, 19 July 2017
I support the name "Chill Bully" in place of the current name. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 21:36, 19 July 2017 (EDT)
Nintendo Power calls it Chill Bully, so I'm in favor of that. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:48, 9 October 2017 (EDT)
I've always liked Chill Bully better. Besides, aren't there other Bullies in Snowman's Land besides this one? If so, it should at least be changed to something like Bully (Ice). Does this need a proposal?

No, there aren't other Bullies. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:54, 9 October 2017 (EDT)
He was probably thinking of Chief Chilly Challenge, which does have generic Bullies. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 23:01, 28 October 2017 (EDT)
"Chill Bully" appears on the leaderboard in Mario Golf 64 as well so there actually is a game source for it in addition to Nintendo Power. Obviously this has already been moved by now, just thought I'd point this out for future reference should the issue come up again. SuperDragonRosalina (talk) 15:57, 9 November 2018 (EST)

Move back to Chill Bully[edit]

Move back to Chill Bully 12-0
OK, I'm going to try and be as nice as possible here. Anyways, this was moved to "Bully" with an identifier because the game simply refers to it as a Bully. However, it refers to many other things by generic names in mission titles, like Chip Off Whomp's Block, Can the Eel Come Out to Play?, Li'l Penguin Lost, Go on a Ghost Hunt, In the Talons of the Big Bird, Swimming Beast in the Cavern, and Pluck the Piranha Flower. "Chill Bully" was the name given specifically to this unique Bully by the Player's Guide, and as such, it seems to be the "specific" name.

Comments[edit]

Considering the proposal that just passed, does this even need a proposal? Niiue (talk) 01:46, 27 October 2017 (EDT)

It hadn't passed when I made it ;) (also I voted against that one, so, uh, yeah.) Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:49, 27 October 2017 (EDT)
Fair enough. Niiue (talk) 01:54, 27 October 2017 (EDT)
