Talk:Clampy

From the Super Mario Wiki

Naming[edit]

Do someone has a source about the name Clampy, because their is a citation needed template. If not, It could be better to move this article to Giant Clam which is source from NSMBU prima guide. Do someone can answer my question?--LudwigVon Sig.png(TALK) 18:15, 27 July 2015 (EDT)

According to the page creation summary, the source is apparently this, although the link appears to be broken. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 18:20, 27 July 2015 (EDT)
The name's from the MK7 Prima guide, which I was in the middle of looking into. Hello, I'm Time Turner.
So, now we have a source. Thanks!--LudwigVon Sig.png(TALK) 18:24, 27 July 2015 (EDT)
One more thing, should we implement that broken link as a source, too? You know, to tell readers that we used to have a source before it became... that. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 18:24, 27 July 2015 (EDT)
I'm a bit skeptical of it, actually; the URL makes me think that it's derived from NSMBW, but the Prima guide only uses "clams", and I think we'd notice if another official source listed a bunch of names. Hello, I'm Time Turner.
IMO, I will say yes, if someone want to know where we take the name (source) before it appear in Mario Kart 7 (from 2009 to 2011).--LudwigVon Sig.png(TALK) 18:31, 27 July 2015 (EDT)
...Oh. This seems like a good candidate for being the name's source, especially since enter-play published the NSMBW cards. Hello, I'm Time Turner.
Yes, your right, maybe this should be mentioned in this article.--LudwigVon Sig.png(TALK) 18:43, 27 July 2015 (EDT)
And here's a video for absolute confirmation. Hello, I'm Time Turner.

Merge[edit]

I brought this up on the forums a while back and then promptly forgot about it, but I might as well pose this question on the wiki proper: is there anything distinguishing Clampy from Clam? Clampies trap players in NSMBW, unlike regular Clams but in SM64/SM64DS, they're just props, which are exactly like regular Clams. Would anyone object to a merge? Hello, I'm Time Turner.

Sorry for the delayed response. Both Clam and Clampy already share information on SM64 and NSMBW. Clamby may be redirected to Clamb after the information has been properly merged and all links updated.

Keep generic clams to a generic clam article and keep the clams with Mario-style eyes to Clampy. Where would the Super Mario Galaxy 2 Clam go, though? Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 17:54, 10 July 2016 (EDT)
They're different enemies: Clams Clampys. Sure Clams look the same as Clampys in Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 but that really doesn't warrant a merge to me and besides in Super Mario 64 and it's DS remake they basically look like real life Clams so no merge.
